Rules & Regulations
Age/Breed: Any age or breed of dog is allowed at The Wiggle Room as long as they meet the facilities temperament, vaccine and health requirements. Puppies cannot begin until all vaccination series are complete, usually by 16 weeks old. All dogs must be spayed or neutered unless under 6 months of age.
Vaccinations: All dogs must have up-to-date vaccine records. Parents must submit a printed copy of verification from their veterinarian that their dog is current on Rabies, Dhlpp (Distemper) and Bordatella (Kennel Cough) vaccinations and they must have a negative fecal in the past year, which includes a Giardia test.
Health: All dogs must be in good health to attend The Wiggle Room. Parents will need to certify that their dog is in good health and free from any condition that could possibly put other daycare guests at risk. Dogs who have been sick with a communicable condition in the last 30 days will require a veterinarian certification of good health to attend The Wiggle Room. If at any time during care a dog is noticed to have fleas or ticks they may be sent home from daycare immediately. They will be allowed to return 48 hours after treatment has been applied (see recommended topical treatments). We highly recommend a flea and parasite preventative, excluding over the counter flea/tick collars. Diarrhea or puppy warts may also be reason for early dismissal. No dog is allowed to attend with an open wound, stitches, bandage, cone, or staples.

Belongings/Feeding: All dogs are required to wear a “quick release” clip-buckle type collar with a nametag. No belt-buckle collars. Please no retractable leashes, prong collars, or electric collars.
