Policies

BOOKING/ RESERVATIONS: All guests must create a client/pet profile on Paw Partner by clicking the “Register Your Pet” link on our website. Please answer the required questions, sign required waivers, and upload your dogs’ most current vaccine records. This must be completed prior to booking.

Booking is done online by the customer. No reservations will be made over the phone. 

Boarding reservations require a non refundable deposit.

Before booking, ensure that you have uploaded your pet’s most current vaccine records, and that the required vaccines are up to date. Reservations made without the required vaccine records will be waitlisted and will not be confirmed until the records are received.

All reservations require an emergency contact. When choosing an emergency contact, please list someone local who is able and willing to pick your dog up in case of an emergency should we not be able to reach you. Please do not list someone who is going out of town with you. Please do not list yourself. 

*No reservations will be confirmed which list the owner as the emergency contact. Emergency contact must be someone willing and able to pick up if necessary. If you or your emergency contact is unable to be reached or pick up if necessary, a $200 fee will be charged to the credit card on file.

Waitlisted reservations are confirmed by email up until the end of the business day prior to the day of the reservation. 

AGE: All dogs attending daycare or boarding at Boops must be at least 4 months of age or older.

*Puppy Boarding is +$3 per night. (Under 8 months)

SPAY/NEUTER: All dogs 7 months of age or older must be spayed or neutered. 

*Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis at staff’s discretion, or with a veterinary recommendation. In those cases, a waiver must be signed.

*Females actively in heat are not permitted until 15 days past the last day of their cycle.

*A 14 day waiting period is required to attend daycare or board with us after your dog is spayed/neutered. 

 

VACCINATIONS: All animals must have up-to-date vaccinations. Contact your veterinarian to obtain your pet’s most current records and upload them to their pet profile. Additional information regarding vaccines can be found here.

Dogs:

  • DHLPP or DAPP (distemper and parvo)

  • Bordetella (Kennel Cough)

  • Rabies

  • Canine Influenza is strongly encouraged

  • Flea & tick preventative

Cats:

  • FVRCP

  • Rabies

 

*A 7 day waiting period is required to attend daycare or board with us after your dog receives the Bordetella vaccine for the first time. If your dog has previously received the vaccine and is due for a booster/renewal, no waiting period will be required so long as the vaccine is administered within 10 days after the expiration date.

*Vaccines must be administered by a licensed veterinarian.

*Self administered vaccines are not permitted.

*VACCINATIONS ARE NOT A GUARANTEE AGAINST CONTRACTING AN ILLNESS, BUT CAN GREATLY REDUCE THE RISK AND SEVERITY.

HEALTH/SAFETY: All dogs must be flea/tick free, present good hygiene (no foul odors such as urine, etc.), and be in good overall health. Owners will certify their dog(s) are in good health and have not been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days. Upon admission, all dogs must be free from any condition which could potentially jeopardize other pets. Dogs that have been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days will require veterinarian certification of health to be admitted or readmitted.

*All dogs must be leashed when entering/exiting Boops.

*Please do not walk your dog in to the building at the same time as another customer/dog. Some dogs can be leash reactive which can cause issues especially between a new dog and a dog who may feel as if Boops is their territory.

*Please do not allow your dog to approach another dog while in our lobby.

*Please do not interact with dogs that are in daycare playrooms.

*Dogs showing any signs of aggression towards another dog will not be permitted to participate in group play, whether here for daycare or boarding.

*Dogs who show any signs of aggression towards humans will not be permitted to attend daycare or board with us.

PICKUP/DROP OFF: Please arrive as close to your chosen pick up/drop off time as possible (within 15 minutes).

**For same day reservations, please call ahead!**

Daycare- There will be an additional charge of $15 per dog for any drop offs/pickups outside of our scheduled daycare drop off/pickup hours for full day daycare.

*If a full day of daycare is booked and you arrive early, your reservation will not be changed to a half day.*

*If a half day of daycare is booked and you arrive after the 5 hour window, your reservation will be modified to a full day, and any applicable drop off/pick up fees will apply.

Boarding- There will be an additional charge of $15 per dog for any drop offs outside of our scheduled boarding drop off hours Mon-Fri. *We encourage you to select a time within our morning drop off hours so that your dog can become acclimated to their new surroundings before going in their kennel for the night, which can be stressful for some dogs.

We only offer morning pickup for boarded dogs. This allows us enough time to clean and maintain our kennels in between pets’ stays. There will be an additional charge of $25 per dog for any pickups outside of our scheduled boarding pickup hours Mon-Fri. 

*No late drop offs or pick ups on Sat/Sun*

*Should you arrive prior to your scheduled pick up date without giving adequate notice (see “cancellations”) , you will be charged for the remainder of the scheduled boarding stay.

*If you find yourself needing to add additional nights of boarding to your dogs’ stay, please give as much notice as possible. We will do our best to accommodate this.

*No pick ups will be permitted after 6pm Mon-Fri for daycare or boarding, or after 11am Sat-Sun for boarding. Should you not arrive by 6pm/11am, your dog/s will be placed in a kennel for the night at the owner’s expense, including meals. 

For a detailed list of drop off/pick up times, please refer to the “Hours” page on our website.

 

MEALS: Owner must provide dogs’ food.

Mealtimes for boarding dogs are 8am, 1pm, and 6pm. Please take this in to consideration on drop off/pick up days. For instance, if your drop off time is 9:30am, please feed your dog their morning meal before drop off, as they’ll have missed morning mealtime at Boops. 

Please bring your dog’s meals pre portioned in sealed Ziplock bags, labeled with their name. This ensures the correct amount of food is given. Please do not bring large food containers or bags that are not resealable. *There will be a $1 fee per meal if food is not brought pre portioned.

Please note that it is not uncommon for dogs to skip meals/eat less than they typically would at home due to the excitement of their new surroundings and friends. 

We may provide our guests with small treats such as milk bones throughout the day. Please let us know when you check in if you do not want your dog to have any treats. 

*In cases where none or not enough food is provided by the owner based on the amount we are told to feed, or the food supplied by the owner is not considered appropriate for a dog (example- cat food), your dog will be switched to a generic, low ingredient kibble (to avoid causing possible digestive issues that can occur when switching a pet’s diet) for the remainder of their stay at $5 per meal.

MEDICATION: If necessary, we can administer medication to your dog, but require a medication form to be completed each time your dog stays with us. Boops Co. does not accept pets that require medical treatment beyond the dispensing of medication (i.e. drains, bandage changes, suture removal, etc.) 

 

DAYCARE PACKAGES: Daycare packages are available for purchase. Packages (excluding our “Ulti-Mutt Membership”) can be used at any time during a 6 month period. 

The “Ulti-Mutt Membership” auto renews monthly from date purchased until cancelled. 

Packages/memberships cannot be used for more than one dog. We offer multiple dog packages at a discounted rate.

*Packages must be purchased prior to the start of a reservation in order to be applied to that day. If purchased at checkout, customer will also be charged for services booked for the day.

*Packages are for full day daycare only. If there are package credits on your account and you book a half day of daycare, normal half day charges will apply.

*There are no refunds for any unused package credits for any reason.

*Package credits expire 6 months from date purchased.

*To cancel the “Ulti-Mutt Membership”, notice must be given 10 days prior to the next billing date. If cancelled with less than 10 days notice, the customer’s account will be charged a $100 cancellation fee.
