Frequently asked questions

What is Kennel Cough?


Kennel Cough is an upper respiratory infection. Although it is not fatal, it does produce a dry, hacking cough, sometimes followed by vomiting, gagging as the dog tries to clear its throat. Your dog can get this at the dog park, daycare, a casual encounter while walking around the neighborhood and even at the veterinarian’s office. All dogs are susceptiable, but at Dogtown we try to minimize the possibility. It is important to know that even if your dog has the bordatella vaccine, it is still possible for your pet to contract kennel cough.




What do I need to do before my dog can come to daycare/boarding?


Just follow these simple steps!

  1. Register on our "Register" tab
  2. Call and make an appointment for a 2 hour evaluation ($20.00)
  3. Bring a printed copy of your up-dated shot records to the evaluation appointment
  4. Show up to your evaluation, call if you cannot make it!




What do I need to bring if my dog is boarding?


You will need to bring: 1. Leash/Harness (sometimes I walk or run them when I'm bored) 2. Food, individually bagged per meal 3. Bed/Blanket/Towel, but may come back with tears, rips or stains!




What are the age requirements to attend daycare?


Dogs need to meet one of these conditions to attend daycare: A) If dog is not fixed, they must have completed all of their puppy shots, must be under the age of 7 months and pass their temperament evaluation OR B) If dog is fixed, must have up-to-date vaccinations and pass their temperament evlaution




What does my dog do all day?


Play! At Dogtown we try to expend your dogs energy through a unique stimulating social experience. The only time your dog will be put up into a kennel is if your dog is eating or if they are playing too rough and need a timeout.




Do you allow pit bulls?


Yes, of course. We do not discriminate against any dog breeds. However, we will not tolerate aggressive behavior. We define aggressive behavior as “the desire or intent to do physical damage to another dog or a human.”




What are the vaccinations requirements to attend daycare?


Dogs must be in good health and current on all vaccinations including: 1. Rabies (1 or 3 year) 2. DHLPP 3. Bordatella (6 month recommended)




When are the temperament evaluation times?


We do temperament evaluations weekdays 8:30, 10:30, 12:30 and weekends 10:30, 12:30 and 2:30. Please call to scheudle an appointment.
