Frequently Asked Questions

There are a multitude of benefits of bringing your furbaby to Off the Leash Pet Care. You’ll see for yourself the joy your dog exhibits when nearing Off The Leash Pet Care front door after his first few visits.  In brief, exposing a dog to a variety of people, dogs, sights and sounds is the definition of socialization. Behaviorists encourage regular socialization and daily exercise for a dog’s overall quality of life and improved behavior.

Who can play and stay at Off The Leash Pet Care?

Requirements to play: Most dogs that do well in a dog park will do well at Off The Leash Pet Care. Since your dog’s safety and well being is our top concern, we do have a few requirements for our daycare dogs.

Play Nice! Dogs must be able to share toys and space with people and other dogs.

How Do I Become a Client?

  • Read the requirements above and ensure your dog meets them.

  • Fill out the enrollment form on this website.

  • Call to schedule your interview. On your interview day bring your proof of vaccination if it has not already been faxed by your vet.

  • After the interview, if all goes well, you are free to make reservations for any daycare or boarding.

What if my dog fails the interview or is unable to stay in daycare?

Some dogs just need a little socialization training before meshing in daycare.   If your dog is not initially accepted or can’t stay in daycare, it’s not the end of the world. It doesn’t mean he’s not a lovable dog. It simply means daycare is too stressful of a situation for him and is better off in a different environment. We can help coordinate alternate outlets for such dogs.

My Pet Doesn’t Always Want to Play With Other Dogs; Sometimes He Just Wants to Be Given Affection. Is Daycare Appropriate for Him?

Yes, many enjoy watching the action from the sidelines. They prefer spending the majority of their day being petted and loved by our staff.  We’re happy to cater to the lovers of the group.

Do You have an Outdoor Yard?

Yes,we have a spacious outdoor play area were your dog will play on our agility gym equipment, or play with their buddies, and nap in the shade provided by a beautiful canopy. If you do not want your pet to go outside feel free to let us know and we will be sure to keep your pet indoors in our climate controlled indoor play area.

Do the Dogs Fight?

On busier days with more guests we will separate dogs into appropriate play groups, but on quieter days we might combine the group since our play areas are spacious enough for the little ones to not feel intimidated.

What precautions do we take to ensure your dog’s safety?

  • All dogs are evaluated and dogs exhibiting aggressive behaviors are not admitted to daycare.

  • Dogs are supervised by trained professionals 100% of the time.

  • Our staff is trained to understand dog’s body language so fights can be stopped before they start.
    Dogs are carefully and slowly introduced to their play group.

  • Since dogs do bite and claw as they play, minor cuts and scratches are not uncommon; but you can rest assure every precaution is taken to avoid a serious altercation.
