Before playing or staying with us at Dog Rock all dogs must be current on the vaccinations listed below. In order to participate in group play, all dogs must complete a group play compatibility interview and be spayed or neutered.
All dogs must be at least 6 months of age before participating in daycare. Dottie Zaris, our trainer, does have a Puppy Kindergarten class at Dog Rock that you can inquire about to prepare your dog for our daycare program.
If your dog stays with us for less than 6 hours, we will charge you for a half day. If your dog is with us for more than 6 hours, you will be charged for a full day.
Daycare Program: 7am-7pm every day of the year
Checkout is 12 PM Noon the day of your pickup. If checking out after 12 PM, your dog will be signed into the daycare program with additional charges. We will charge you a 1/2 day charge of $32.00 if picked up before 6 PM or a full day charge of $45.00 if picked up between 6 PM-7 PM. If picked up between 7 PM-8 PM, an additional $20.00 (daycare late pick up fee) will be charged. All checkouts AFTER 8 PM will be considered another night of boarding and your dog will have his or suite (suite based on availability) until 12 PM the following day.
Group daycare is 7AM-7PM every day with high energy and low energy periods staggered throughout the day. We believe it is critical to provide periods of low energy where we replace all toys with beds, turn off the lights, put music on and allow the dogs to relax.
Yes. We will NOT be “checking in”, we will be present at all times and hands on! Our play yard supervisor’s primary responsibility is to maintain a healthy, stress free environment for the dogs in group play. He or she is carefully monitoring body language and behavioral cues with the idea to solve problems before they occur. We accomplish this by developing relationships with each and every dog who stays with us and learning his or her tendencies. We carefully select which dogs play together based on of size and temperament.
For dogs who have not passed our Group Play Compatability Interview, recently injured, too old or simply not interested in socializing we offer Private Boarding. Private Boarding consists of four 15-20 minute one on one sessions in a private play yard with a staff member and of course an additional outdoor potty break before bed at roughly 10 PM.
If you bring your own dog food we ask you to be as detailed as possible with your instructions. It is best to supply us with already labeled ready to serve portions if your dog is on a special diet. If you do not bring dog food or your dog stays longer than anticipated, our house dog food is veterinarian approved and is $3 per meal. Our staff is trained to administer non-injectable medicine. Each pill pocket is an additional $1.
Of course! Please feel free to bring anything you feel will make your dog more comfortable during his or her stay with us.
Yes. Depending on the holiday, there is an additional charge for Daycare and overnight boarding.
You will receive a 15% discount on your second dog if they stay in the same suite. If they prefer private suites, they will be charged full price.
As soon as possible. Especially over the Christmas and New Years holidays, we ask that you let us know at least one month ahead of time in order to guarantee a reservation.
To ensure the safety of every dog and the integrity of our "Dogs Come First" policy, we have a fun interview process.Get Started
