At The Board Hound, our philosophy on daycare begins with the basics: safety, cleanliness, and fun. Our smaller play groups come with individual care and attention, while providing a low-stress, safe, daycare environment. Since safety is our first priority, we start with providing the lowest staff to dog ratio possible. This personalization ensures that your dog is always closely monitored. We understand that not all dogs are the same so we match energy levels, comfort levels, and play styles to create the perfect playgroup with each dog in mind. These playgroups are continuously adjusted as the dynamics fluctuate thought the day to ensure that all the dogs stay safe and happy.
Our daycare flooring is temperature controlled for comfort, and made of epoxied concrete to prevent paw and pad injuries. And because our floor is non-porous, it is easy to clean and disinfect. Our play areas are thoroughly disinfected to provide an exceptionally clean daycare environment every day. Our play areas also include our trademarked RoofTop PlayTM space. Our unique outdoor play area provides your dog access to fresh air throughout the day in monitored playgroups. RoofTop PlayTM is approached just the same as our other play areas to provide a low-stress and safe environment.
At The Board Hound, we understand that every dog has unique needs while in daycare. We do our absolute best to accommodate any special request for your dog while in our care. We can accommodate a wide range of requests to suit your dog's needs ranging from midday lunch to scheduled rest time. In addition to providing exceptional care for your canine companions, we are equally flexible and understanding of our clients' needs. We offer early drop off in the morning before we open, as well as late pick up in the evening. Our evaluations and consultations are always 100% free and include your first day of daycare at no additional charge. We also offer a 10% discount on all services and merchandise for all Active Duty Military.
The Drop-off Evaluation is our most convenient, and most popular, evaluation option. We offer the flexibility of a Drop-off Evaluation in order to accommodate any busy schedule. Drop-off Evaluations are typically scheduled between 7AM and 9AM Monday through Friday after we have received your required registration paperwork, including vaccines. When you drop your dog off for your evaluation, he will need to stay for a minimum of 4 hours. However, you can always leave him for a longer trial day, if desired. There is also no requirement to be present for his evaluation. During the initial evaluation, your dog will be introduced to several staff members as well as other dogs under the supervision of a manager. After which, your pup will be placed in an appropriate playgroup according to his play style, energy level, and comfort level.
The Daycare Consultation option can be accommodated between the hours of 11AM and 1PM Monday through Friday, with an appointment. The Daycare Consultation consists of a one-on-one evaluation, before scheduling a trial day of daycare. This option is best suited for dogs with any behavioral concerns, special needs, or if you just aren't sure how your dog will be around other dogs. For any dog younger than 16 weeks of age (must be at least 10 weeks), we will require the Daycare Consultation.
