DayCare Restrictions

Restricted breeds:

  • DayCare will not allow restricted breeds, which include American Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Fila Brasileiro, Dogo Argentino, and Perro de Presa Canario.
  • Shar Pei, Akita, and giant breeds are also unable to attend our DayCare program.

The restriction of the above breeds, in addition to giant breeds at DayCare, have been implemented in order to comply with PIAA and Australian standards.

*Along with restricted breeds, any dog that does not pass the temperament test for any reason will not be permitted into DayCare. However, a failed temperament test may not restrict your dog from our DayStay program.

Does my dog need to be desexed?

  • Local government policy under dog and cat management act requires DayCare dogs to be desexed.
  • Puppies under 6 months will be allowed in DayCare if they are not yet desexed and they are not in season. However, if your puppy is not yet desexed, they will not be allowed in any other DayCare groups.

Toys & food at DayCare:

  • Toys will also not be allowed in DayCare. They often can trigger territorial behaviors. DayCare is a time for your dog to interact with staff and other dogs.
  • Food will not be included in DayCare, eating a meal during high activity can be harmful to adult dogs. Puppies have a faster metabolism and sometimes require midday meals, so your pup will be allowed lunch if provided during their resting time. For puppies, we ensure they will have enough rest time before and after their meal to digest before heading back out to play.
