On Your Fur Baby’s First Day
The first day of doggie daycare is free of charge and is considered a temperament test, although the temperament test is not required.
Sunday, Monday and Tuesday are the best days to try daycare for the first time because they tend to be slower, which helps your pooch and yourself adjust better. We also recommend dropping your fur babe off within the first hour of lobby hours on these days to ensure they are able to slowly meet new furriends.
We strongly discourage Thursday and Friday as your woof’s first day because they tend to be quite busy and may be overwhelming to your pooch.
For the first day of doggie daycare, we recommend staying for a half-day to see if your pooch is a good fit for group play.
You can read more about what to expect the first day on our blog.
We do not allow aggressive dogs or excessive barkers at the Lounge.
After your pup is deemed a good fit, you are welcome to attend doggie daycare any time or schedule a reservation for dog boarding. We also recommend attending daycare prior to boarding so your woof will feel at home during their stay. We know last-minute events come up, so this isn’t always possible!
Your pooch will likely come home from doggie daycare extra tired and thirsty. Don’t be alarmed, this is normal! We call this a #HoundsLoungeHangover. Our campers have access to water all day, however, they are having too much fun to drink as much as they should.
