    Reservation Requirements

    • We have no specific requirement for how far in advance you must make your reservation. As long as your dog has passed our screening requirements and we have space, we will take your reservation. However, all of our services are generally full during school breaks, summer and holidays so we strongly encourage you to make your reservations early. We are also experiencing full days in daycare periodically throughout the year. We recommend having a standing daycare appointment to have a guaranteed spot.
    • Cancellations may be made up until 5 PM the night before a scheduled service to avoid a no-show fee.
