Please remember that your pet will be spending time with other pets and the safety and health of the pack is our main concern.

Owners will be charged a $20.00 late fee for pick up after 7:30 PM for first 1/2 hour after 1/2 hour you will be charged a $1 per minute. Any pet not picked up within 24 hours will be considered abandoned and will be turned over to the Tacoma Animal Care and Control Center along with Owner‘s contact information. Any expenses incurred for the transport, overnight care, and /or placement or adoption of said pet shall be paid by the Owner in addition to other fees incurred for services provided by at or through DawgTown Tacoma LLC. Owner hereby grants a lien on said pet for any and all unpaid charges resulting from services provided by at or through DawgTown Tacoma LLC.

Do they need food? If you would like your dog to be fed during their stay, we request that you bring their regular food to avoid causing possible digestive issues (diarrhea, etc). We ask that your dog's food be divided into separate meals and be labeled with your Dog's name and any special feeding instructions (feeding time, adding water, elevating food, etc.). Also, we may provide our guests with small treats throughout the day - please let us know on the Application if you do not want your dog to have any treats.

Health of dog: All dogs must be clean and in good health, and must not have fleas (we strongly recommend that your dog receive some form of monthly topical flea treatment plan - please consult your veterinarian for more information about flea treatment options).Owners will certify that their dogs are in good health and have not been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days. Dogs that have been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days will require a veterinary certificate of health to be admitted or re-admitted. Any dog with diarrhea will be removed from daycare and will not be able to socialize with the other dogs until this problem has been resolved. Dogs with excessive diarrhea may be required to have a negative fecal and/or giardia test before being re-admitted to daycare.

Interview/Evaluation: Your dog must complete a one-time screening/ temperament test with a staff member to ensure that your dog's temperament is a good fit with our other furry guests (safety is our top priority, and aggressive or unfriendly behavior can be dangerous for both dogs and staff members alike). Temperament tests MUST be scheduled with us in advance - please call ahead for availability (253-503-0945). The test will be a minimum of 2 hours and max of 4 hours. There is a non-refundable $18 Application & Evaluation fee per dog. Please note that we MUST have proof of current vaccinations and a negative fecal float test (within the last 90 days) in order to conduct the temperament test with your dog.

Legal Policy: Our Policies, Procedures, Services and Rates may change from time to time. While we will attempt to notify you of these changes, it is ultimately your responsibility to check back on our website regularly so that you are aware of our most current Policies, Procedures, Services and Rates. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at our sole discretion. I understand that there are risks inherent in any large group of dogs interacting with each other and that even under close supervision injuries can occur. If it is known which dog caused an injury, that dog's owner will be liable for all expenses incurred. If it is not known which dog caused an injury, each owner is responsible for their own expenses.

Collars: All dogs must be wearing a quick-release cloth collar with a name tag and must be on a leash upon entry. No metal, pinch, choke, beaded or studded collars will be allowed in the daycare area.

Cancellation Policy: All other daycare cancellations with less than twenty four (24) hours notice will be charged against purchased package. Risks: Owners understand that supervised off-leash socialization and interaction between our guests is encouraged. Owners also acknowledge that dogs are unpredictable in behavior, and are aware of the risks involved in such play, and assume all risks.

Safety Issues: In order to maintain a safe play environment for the dogs, any dog that misbehaves will be given a time-out from the daycare area because of excessive barking which can escalate the intensity of the pack dynamic, rough play and excessive mounting or bullying. We reserve the right to remove your dog and ban them from daycare if we feel it is necessary without refund of paid day or package.

Spay/Neuter: All dogs over 8 months of age must be spay or neutered in order to socialize with the other dogs in daycare. Vaccination Policy: All canine guests must have up-to-date vaccinations and annual negative fecal tests in order to be a member of our pack. Owners must submit written proof of current DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus ), Bordetella (kennel cough) and Rabies vaccinations as well as an annual negative fecal float test. For new clients, the fecal test must be conducted within the last 90 days prior to your temperament test. We do accept titer tests provided that they are documented by your veterinarian and are updated annually. You can either bring us a copy of your dog's vaccination & fecal records, or simply have your Vet email the records directly to us at dawgtowntacoma@comcast.net.

Puppies must be a minimum of 10 weeks of age in order to be admitted. It is the ongoing responsibility of the owner to provide verification that vaccinations are current - we will make every effort to remind you before your dog's vaccinations expire.

What to Bring: For daycare, please bring a leash, a quick-release collar, and any food that you would like your pooch to be fed during lunch. Please do not bring food or water dishes as we supply them.
