Application

Qualifications for Day Care/Boarding:

1) Please fill out our application.

2) Dogs must be at least 4 months old.

3)Provide proof of current on vaccinations for:

  • Rabies,
  • Distemper
  • Bordatella.

We accept titers as an alternative to vaccinations.  Guest dogs must be in good health and flea/tick free.  Dogs that have contracted a contagious disease within the last 30 days must have clearance from a veterinarian prior to boarding or attending daycare.

4) Dogs should have a current license.

5) Schedule an appointment for a tour of Good Dog Day Care and an evaluation.

How does the evaluation process work?

There are three parts to the evaluation.  First, we do a hands on test with your dog to insure the safety of the staff.  This includes putting our hand in your dogs mouth, touching their four paws, and giving them a hug.  The second part is to observe your dog viewing other dogs through a fence.  The third step is you to evaluate Good Dog Day Care.  You need to have confidence in the care being provided to your dog.

Half Day Temperament Test for Day Care is required.  Test is $20
(half day evaluation is not required for boarding)

What is temperament testing? 

The requirements for a dog to participate in day care is more stringent than for boarding.  Doggy daycare is designed for social, outgoing dogs who like to play with other dogs.  A typical day involves meeting, greeting, and interacting with a variety of unfamiliar dogs.  Many dogs thrive on constant social interaction.  But, some dogs don’t understand or even like to be put into this type of situation.  We want all of our guests to enjoy a safe, fun-filled day with us.  A temperament test is the process we use to determine if your dog is a good candidate for daycare.

What happens during the temperament test?

Your application provides history about your dog’s routine, personality and special care.  After the tour/evaluation, we’ll discuss the “Day Care Temperament Evaluation”  and schedule it.  This evaluation usually runs from 8:00am to 2:00pm.  It allows us to introduce your dog to a playgroup and experience the naptime process. Once we have some baseline observations to go by, we will make a recommendation. You will have facts to use in deciding if our Day Care and processes are beneficial to you and your best friend.  If all goes well, your dog is welcome to  future daycare and boarding.

What happens if your dog is not suitable for daycare?

We are mindful of the safety, health, and enjoyment of every guest.  Occasionally, we meet a dog that is not a good candidate for a daycare setting.  There are a variety of reasons for this – sometimes a dog is very shy, sometimes they lack good play skills, sometimes they are frightened or aggressive.  If your dog is not accepted into our daycare program, we will be happy to recommend a trainer who can help you address specific concerns.  We warmly welcome you to schedule a follow-up interview when you feel that your dog is ready for a daycare environment.

Good Dog Day Care Policies —

1. Temperament: All dogs must complete a temperament evaluation. GDDC reserves the right to refuse any dog that might be a safety hazard to itself, other dogs in our care, or staff members. This includes but is not limited to, dogs who are aggressive, anti-social, toy or people aggressive, anxious or physically ill. We will accept intact females on a trial basis, but no females in heat are permitted. All male dogs must be neutered. Well behaved Bully Breeds that have passed evaluation may be allowed under strict supervision. They may be prohibited from play groups at the discretion of GDDC.

3. Vaccinations: All dogs must have current (at least 7 days prior) vaccination including Rabies, Bordatella and DHLLP. Titers are acceptable.

4. Flea Protection: It is recommended that you use a flea prevention protocol. Dogs with fleas will be barred from the facility until the problem has been successfully addressed.

5. Heartworm: Because your dog will be mixing with others, it is a good idea to have your dog on veterinarian approved heartworm preventative.

6. Collars, Leashes, Licenses and Barking: All dogs must be on leash when entering and exiting the premises. Please do not allow your dog to be vocal on the way in. We understand that dogs “talk” when they are excited and may be eager to come in and play, but we need to be good neighbors and minimize outside noise. Hayward Animal Control Dept. has access to this facility and our records on demand. It is a good idea to have your dog properly licensed in accordance with your residence City’s requirements.

7. Service fees: Payment is expected at the time service is rendered. We accept cash, Checks, Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

8. Early / Late fees: Early drop off (prior to 7:00 am opening time) is available for a fee of $5.00., dogs not picked up by our 7:00 pm closing time will be considered an overnight guest and will be charged the appropriate boarding fee.

Hold Harmless Release —

Good Dog day Care, its owners, employees, representatives or any other person(s) affiliated with the company shall hereinafter be referred to as GDDC. By signing this form, you agree not to hold GDDC liable or sue for any injuries to and/or death of your dog(s) while on the premises for recreation, boarding, training and/or in the care of GDDC.

Although GDDC screens all dogs for temperament, does not take aggressive dogs and watches dogs carefully and provides a healthy and safe environment for your dog, GDDC cannot guarantee the behavior of any dog and consequently, cannot guarantee that your dog will not be exposed to the risk of injury or death for reasons including, but not limited to aggressive behavior by other dogs. I understand that when dogs play together, there is an inherent risk of injury or death. By submitting this form, I agree that I will not hold GDDC responsible for injuries to my dog(s) and / or death that may occur in and out of the facility or during indoor or outdoor recreational play.

I also understand that the non-slip rubber floor, while providing a very good playing surface, may cause blisters, abrasions or scrapes to appear on the pads of my dog(s) feet. Also, some dogs pads may be sensitive to the Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide disinfectant used throughout the facility. If the staff of GDDC notices my dog(s) limping, favoring or licking a paw, they will make a reasonable attempt to reduce activity levels, but are not liable or responsible for such injuries. Furthermore I understand that abrasions, nicks, scratches or mucous found on my dog after daycare or boarding would be a normal consequence of play and interacting with other dogs and will not hold GDDC liable for such wounds or injuries.

If, in my absence, my dog should become ill or injured, or need veterinary care, GDDC has my permission to consult with my veterinarian and I realize GDDC will make a reasonable effort to bring my dog to my veterinarian or emergency animal clinic. I understand that I am responsible for all veterinary costs, including the transportation of my pet to and from the veterinarian and /or clinic.

I understand and agree that my dog(s) needs to be brought in and out of the facility on leash. GDDC makes every effort to ensure the safety of all the dogs on premises and if my dog should get loose or lost outside, I will not hold GDDC responsible. I understand and agree that while at GDDC, my dog(s) will be routinely asked to "come" , "sit", "stay", "off" and informally exposed to toys and equipment such as tunnels, jump bars, and balls. GDDC also employs the use of treats, redirection, brief on-lead time and /or time outs to get compliance from dogs and curb unwanted behavior such as barking, mounting or overly rambunctious behavior.

I hereby declare that my dog(s) is not known to be aggressive toward other dogs or people. If my dog is aggressive while at GDDC, I agree to pay all medical bills associated with the incident including those related to injuries to my dog, injuries to other dogs resulting from the incident, and injuries to people or equipment related to the incident.

I hereby declare that my animal has not been exposed to any communicable diseases within the last 30 days and is fully vaccinated in accordance with GDDC policy. If I choose to leave items with GDDC,(IE: a bed or blanket) I will properly identify them in writing (or via an ID tag). GDDC may use permanent marker or other non-removable methods to ID my belongings. I understand that GDDC cannot be held responsible for lost, dirty, damaged or destroyed belongings left at the facility.

By submitting this form, I acknowledge that I understand and accept the terms and conditions set forth in this agreement.
