We reserve the right to suspend any dog's membership until they are spayed or neutered if we feel being in tact is affecting their group experience or is a safety concern.ShotsAll dogs must be up-to-date on their Rabies vaccine, per the state legal standards (as of this date that means vaccination at 12 weeks, 1 year and then every 3 years). All other vaccines can be given per veterinarian’s recommendations. Owners must provide a copy of current vaccinations or titers to The Good Dog Spot at time of acceptance and as shots are updated.HealthOnly healthy dogs can come to daycare/boarding. Owners who observe signs of illness are to keep the dog home until the situation is clarified. Dogs who appear ill at daycare/boarding will be segregated or taken to the vet if needed.

We will provide a verbal or written report of your dog’s behavior when you pick up your dog and will advise you of any concerns at that time. We reserve the right to declare a dog’s behavior as unfit for our daycare/boarding environment at any time, but weendeavor to inform you in advance of any ongoing concerns and to work with you on a solution when possible. Additionally, we recommend that all dogs attend a basic training course either here or elsewhere, for the safety of the dogs and for the enhancement of the dog-owner bond, as we are promoting and supporting the WHOLE dog.Application/InterviewAll dogs must be interviewed prior to attendance at daycare/boarding.

Overnight Boarding Policies
Boarding dogs are subject to the previously stated daycare policies except as noted below:RatesThe fee for basic overnight boarding is $47 or $52 for suite accommodations (plus sales tax), which includes daycare on the first day through 12 pm on the day of pick up. You are charged based on arrival for boarding at 7 am regardless of the time at which you actually drop off your dog on their first day. We Strongly encourage you to give your dog the full day to play and tire themselves out, meet their friends, andacclimate to the new environment before they bed down for the night. We also highly recommend that your dog attend at least a half day of daycare prior to boarding so they can become familiar with our facility.If picked up before 12 pm there is no charge for that day. After 12 pm there is a $15 late checkout fee per dog to cover the additional day of daycare.HealthDogs arriving for boarding with or developing (while boarding) signs of coughs, fevers, diarrhea or vomiting will be segregated and/or taken to the vet per judgment of the manager on duty. We reserve the right to take any boarding dog to see a veterinarian at our discretion, whether due to injury, illness, or general condition, with all expenses to be reimbursed to us by you, the dog’s owner. Based on observedsigns of illness or veterinary diagnosis, we reserve the right to have the dog transferred to a veterinary facility or some other legal boarding facility that is able to keep the dog isolated, instead of at our facility, with all expenses to be reimbursed to us by you, the dog’s owner. You are exempt from paying boarding fees here when we arrange to have your dog boarded elsewhere, however, you may be charged up to $40 per day for our efforts at transporting and/or attending on your dog at the vet or other situation.Behavior Evaluation/InterviewWe need to evaluate boarding dogs for signs of stress when crated or when alone. We may request a daycare day or overnight stay as part of your dog’s evaluation prior to accepting your dog for boarding; regular daycare and overnight rates apply.Multiple Dog DiscountsEach additional dog will be charged the discounted rate of $37 per night for basic boarding, or $47 for suite boarding.Pick Up/ Drop off timesWeekdays: 7 am to 12 pm; 1:30–6 pm (drop off before 5:30) Sat/Sun/Holidays: 8–11 am ; 3–5 pm (drop off before 4:30)
What to expect:If your dog is unaccustomed to an all day playgroup environment they will likely be very tired upon returning home. It is not unusual that they may have loose stool from all the excitement as well. Your dog has access to water all day while at The Good Dog Spot but will probably want a good long drink when they get home (think about going for an all day hike when you normally just take a 10 minute walk). This is normal. But if you notice lethargy lasting beyond 48 hours or lasting diarrhea, vomiting, etc it is always best to talk to your vet
Accidents & InjuriesOur staff is highly trained in canine body language, behavior and socialization. Despite the best training, when dogs play together things can get rough even when no aggression is involved. Dogs play with their mouths and paws. While our staff is highly trained in canine behavior and will do everything possible to avoid problems, it is not unlikely that your dog could experience the following as a result of being here: neck problems, torn and detached toe nails, minor cuts, scrapes and teeth marks, tooth loss or breakage, injured legs, tendons, joints etc. Beyond this, it is unlikely, but possible, that your dog could suffer serious injury from a dog fight.
FleasTicks are also prevalent in most outdoor areas (your yard, the woods, etc.) We ask that all dogs attending daycare/boarding are treated with Frontline or Advantix. This will not only protect your dog while he/she is here, but will decrease the chances of your dog picking up fleas elsewhere and bringing them here. Dogs with an obvious flea infestation will be screened out as currently unhealthy. However, as you know, fleas are not always so obvious. The staff will inform owners if any fleas are noted on a dog so that they can begin to take care of the problem.
Other health related concernsWe endeavor to make daycare/boarding as clean and healthy as possible, nevertheless, your dog may be exposed to health issues.The staff provides an on-going visual assessment of the dogs’ apparent physical ability to handle daycare/boarding activities and any observed concerns will be brought to the owner’s attention. However, we are not able to provide professional assessment of any dog’s actual physical state and therefore the owner is alwaysresponsible for knowing their dog’s limitations and, by bringing the dog to daycare/boarding, is asserting his/her dog’s ability to handle the physical play at daycare/boarding. Please remember that it is not uncommon for dogs to develop genetic structural issues, such as hip displaysia, between 10 months and 2 years of age and that the daycare/boarding activities are not the cause of their occurrence.Regardless of all screening, communicable diseases can be passed to and from vaccinated dogs, and vaccinations are not available for many of the things your dog may contract. Dog daycare/boarding is very like a child’s daycare in passing around cold/flu-like symptoms several times a year. Dogs who have had the Bordatella (commonly called “kennel cough”) vaccine can STILL CONTRACT Bordatella (a deep hacking cough). In the case of both of these illnesses, we have found that most dogs build an immunity after the first few go-rounds, while others (a very few of the total population) get something each and every time it goes around.An even smaller amount of our dogs at daycare/boarding get sicker than the other dogs each time. There are no obvious signs of ill-health on any of the dogs who tend to be less resistant and resilient than the others. We do not close the daycare for these symptoms, but we do request that any dog showing signs of any illness be kept home.Other potential health concerns may include, but are not limited to: skin contaminants, water contaminants, feces-borne contaminants, airborne contaminants.
Our highly trained staff will observe for any potential signs of illness and seek to control for it in as timely a manner as possible, but it is possible that your dog will require veterinary treatment for a condition possibly picked up from other dogs at daycare/boarding. The Good Dog Spot accepts no responsibility or financial obligation for any such treatment your dog may require.
