The purpose of Catch-n-Fetch is to provide a safe, fun and stimulating social environment for dogs during weekday business hours. To ensure the safety and health of your pet and our other guests, we require all guests to comply with the following rules and regulations:

  • Age: All puppies 12 wks of age and current on their puppy shots.
  • Sex: All dogs over 6 months of age must be spayed or neutered. Special consideration will be considered for certain cases.
  • Health: All dogs must have up-to-date vaccinations (DHLP, Rabies, Parvo and Bordetella (kennel cough) and owners are required to provide proof of vaccinations. Kennel cough is a risk for dogs in a group setting. Rabies is required for puppies over 6 months of age.

Owners are asked to certify their pet is good health and has not been ill with a communicable condition. Upon admission, all dogs must be free from any condition, which could potentially jeopardize other guests. Dogs will be current on all vaccinations with the Bordatella vaccine required every 6 months. Any dogs with coughing, sneezing, nasal discharge or eye discharge will need to be symptom free before returning to daycare. If the dog is started on antibiotics for a contagious illness, a 5-day window is required.

Should medical attention be required, as deemed by Catch-n-Fetch staff, a reasonable attempt will be made to notify the owner prior to transportation to the veterinarian.

The daycare provider will inform clients of any active coughing or sneezing identified in any dog. The daycare client should inform the daycare provider of any symptoms seen after the dog has been in attendance at Catch-n-Fetch.

A systemic flea application no less than manufactures recommended frequency for flea prevention. Example: Frontline is every 90 days for fleas, 30 days for flea & tick. Heartworm preventative is required as prescribed by your veterinarian.

  • Behavior: All dogs must be non-aggressive and not toy protective.
