Welcome to Doggie Daycare!
Maybe your workday is too long to leave your pup at home, or maybe your furry friend could use some socialization. Whatever the need, we’re happy to help your companion blow off some steam with a day of puppy play and human love!
FIRST TIME VISITORS
New to daycare? No problem! We offer a half day free trial Monday – Friday. Bring in your pup for any six hours at no charge to see if they are a good fit and enjoy playing with the pack. If they’re having a lot of fun and you need them to stay beyond their initial trial time, don’t worry—we’ve got you covered. Just pay for the second half of the day.
Notice to regular MRAH daycare clients: Starting on 1/12/19, we will no longer offer regular doggy daycare on Saturdays. Instead, we will offer Puppy Socialization classes with our trainer. Click here for details.
RULES AND REGS
– In order to attend our doggie daycare, your canine companion must be spayed or neutered.
– Your pup must be current on vaccines, including Rabies, Distemper/Parvo (DA2PP), and Bordetella. We do require proof of vaccines upon check-in before a new dog can go to the play area.
PICK UP AND DROP OFF
Monday-Friday – 7:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
Saturdays: Puppy Socialization classes only
On weekdays, feel free to drop off and pick up any time during our daycare hours.
PLAY & TRAIN OPTION
This option is available at Mountain Ridge through the Good Dog Project. See our training page for more information on our trainer. Dogs have the opportunity to do group training, individualized training, and much more during their stay. Your dog must pass an evaluation to enter so if you aren’t already going to day care, contact us and we can set that up!
Commands and skills we will work on:
- Basic obedience
- Leave it
- Loose leash walking
- Crate training
- Leash reactivity (if your dog gets along great with the dogs in daycare but you experience excitement, barking, lunging, and growling on leash, we can take them out on a walk to build better skills)
- Dog-to-human resource guarding
- Separation anxiety
- Recall with distractions
- Nose work
- Long leash (free walks)
- Kongs/food puzzles
The Good Dog Project’s Puppy Socialization classes at MRAH are an opportunity for puppies to experience people, other dogs, surfaces, noises and more in a low-stress setting to create positive experiences. Socialization is extremely important for your pet’s well-being and behavior and will make your dog a much better family member.
These classes are for puppies between 9 weeks and 16 weeks. Your dog must have at least one round of DA2PP vaccinations as well as a bordetella vaccine a minimum of one week prior to attendance. We ask that you wait at least 10 days after getting your new puppy to join class.
Cost is $15 per class or a package of four sessions for $55.
