FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Dog Daycare is the exact equivalent of daycare and school for kids. You drop them off in the morning before work and pick them up before 7pm to go home and snuggle.
No. Boarding means leaving your dog in our care overnight. As mentioned before, daycare is from 7am to 7pm, Monday through Friday, school for your dog.
The minimum requirements are that your dog passes the Evaluation Exam prior to being allowed in daycare. They should also be spayed or nurtured by year 1, be under regular veterinary care, and
Our Boarding Homes offer an all inclusive, cage free, home environment where your dog(s) can roam, relax, and play as they do in your own home. No crates, dingy kennels, or even “luxury” suites here!
Dog Boarding at DoggyDay is like being at home with them yourselfWe take them out on a minimum of 2 walks per day, and when possible on our dog walking appointments and all other errands.
They get to play with lots of other doggies each and every day and get lots of exercise.
At home, they curl up at our feet or on our lap, chew their favorite treats and bones, cuddle with us everywhere, and sleep in our bed at night (unless mommy and daddy forbid it).
We board a maximum of 3 guest dogs and / or cats depending on the host and the pets in question.
Yes, we offer Pet Taxi. Please contact us for an estimate.
Because our boarding “facilities” are someone’s private home, we schedule drop-offs and pick-ups between 9am and 7pm.
If you are leaving or returning outside of those hours, please board your pet the night before and pick them up the morning after your arrival.
Your pick-up and drop-off appointments are part of our boarding hosts work schedule. This means they are waiting for you at those specific times and have other appointments throughout the day. If you’re running early or late for your pick-up or drop-off appointment, you need to communicate that with your host as soon as possible.
Dog Walking Questions
Dog walking packages are used for regularly scheduled walks on a set schedule and frequency. On the first walk of your package, the dog walker will bring a tracking sheet to your house and note each walk with times and comments.
Canceling a walk
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 514-564-3647 at least 48 hours before the walk you are changing.
Same day cancellations cannot be processed and the scheduled walk will be counted as “completed” and billed in full.
Adding a walk
If you need to add a walk, outside of your regularly scheduled package, please contact us a minimum of 48 hours in advance. Additional a la carte walks, are private walks and are billed separately.
Last minute (under the required 48 hours notice) service requests incur a $20 administrative rush fee.
We cannot guarantee that a dog walker or pet sitter will be available for same day service requests, but every effort will be made to accommodate your pet’s needs.
Regular Group and Private Walks
We offer the following group walking time frames. A specific time cannot be guaranteed for group walks.
- Morning – 9am to 11am
- Midday – 11:30am to 2pm
- Afternoon – 3pm to 5pm
- Evening – 5pm to 7pm
We may be able to schedule private walks as early as 8am and as late as 9pm depending on your location. Please contact us to check on walkers availability.
