What to Expect: Information for New Clients

"Our babies were loved, spoiled, and especially well cared for at Learn, Play, Stay Doggie Resort. Donna is the best and the staff are great as well. We will have them care for our six pups again whenever we go out of town. The facilities are excellent and we really loved that each of our six pups had their own room."


Guest Policies

Vaccinations and Health Requirements

  • Please note that in order to use any of the services we offer, your ‘fur baby’ must be up to date on their DHPPV, Bordetella, and Rabies vaccinations. We also highly recommend they are vaccinated against Leptospirosis.

  • Owners must submit a copy of their dog's vet records showing that all of these shots are up to date at least 14 days prior to the time of drop off for any service. Failure to do so will result in us not being able to provide any services for your dog.

  • If your dog has had the Intranasal Bordetella vaccination, we will accept those shot records 48 hours prior to drop off.

  • If your dog is showing any symptoms of illness (such as cold, coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.) prior to participating in any of our services, do not bring them in.

  • We will not accept any dogs that have had surgery within the last 10 days and are not fully healed.

Spay/Neuter Requirement

  • At Learn Play Stay Doggie Resort, we are committed to the health, safety, and well-being of each of our doggie guests. For this reason, we require that all male dogs over age 6 months be neutered prior to attending our daycare services. We accept non-neutered and non-spayed dogs for boarding as well as non-spayed dogs for daycare as long as the females are not in heat.

  • Before boarding or participating in daycare, any dog that has recently been spayed/neutered must be 10 days healed. We will not accept any dogs that have had spay/neuter surgery within the last 10 days and are not fully healed.

Flea Prevention

  • Your dog must be on flea prevention. If a flea is caught on your dog upon its arrival, a flea bath will be given and the owner will be responsible for the charge totaling $20.00 for a flea bath. Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation!

Temperament Test

  • Prior to enrolling in our daycare program, we require that your dog complete a Temperament Test. Each test is done by appointment, costs $10, and typically lasts about 10 minutes. Our certified dog trainer will evaluate and verify that your pet is a good fit for daycare. This will ensure that every doggie guest enjoys a safe, positive, and playful experience during their visit.

Boarding Cancellation Policy

  • We require 48 hours notice when canceling a reservation. Failure to cancel 48 hours prior to your dog's scheduled arrival will result in a $38 overnight boarding fee.
