“I’ve been bringing my miniature Dachshund here twice a week since he was a teeny tiny puppy and he LOVES it. When we pull up in the morning he cannot get to the front door fast enough, so it’s obvious the staff at Metro Dogs have curated a happy environment for him to play with his friends. I’ve always felt confident leaving him in their hands and will continue to recommend them to other dog owners.”
– Erin M.

House Rules

Metro Dogs Daycare is a social, group environment where the dogs hang out and play together all day. In order to keep things, well, orderly, certain rules apply. All dogs must meet the following:

Health requirements: 

  • Up to date on following vaccines:
    • Rabies (by 16 weeks of age)
    • DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvo and Parainfluenza) or equivalent
    • Bordetella (aka Canine Cough)
    • Highly encouraged but not required: Canine Influenza
  • Be free of communicable disease and have a recent fecal exam, at least within the last 12 months
  • Be free of parasites and be on veterinarian-approved flea and tick preventions during months at which temperatures can be above 32F (generally April through November)
  • Sterilization done by 12 months of age, no females in heat at any age

 

Behavior requirements: 

  • Pass a temperament evaluation
  • Comfortably engage with dogs of all kinds
  • Be safely handled by all staff members
  • Share toys with other dogs and accept treats without possession towards dogs or staff
  • Displays of behavior relating to stress (incessant barking, excessive mounting, not taking treats, reactivity) are NOT allowed with your dog’s best interest in mind
  • Displays of negative behaviors relating to being intact (mounting, intersex reactivity, excessive marking, obsession with another dog) are NOT allowed and the dog may be asked to take a break until sterilized

 

Exceptions:

  • A titer test may replace the DHPP vaccine, talk with your vet for more information on titer testing
  • Sterilization may be extended past 12 months if recommended by your veterinarian and if your dog is not displaying any concerning behaviors driven by being intact

 

Our evaluation process, one of the most important aspects of the Metro Dogs Daycare program, is designed to identify potential troublemakers—overly aggressive or defensive dogs. Neither of which makes for a fun, safe place for your dog to be.

*New Client Evaluation Days are by appointment only.
