SIGNATURE DOG DAY CARE SERVICE

Pricing: Booked for 2019 until further notice

Includes complimentary pick up & drop off of your dog.

Does your dog need interaction with a well socialized dog? And a busy and unsupervised doggie day care is just out of the question - then this service may be for you and your dog. This dog day care service focuses on socialization, on-leash dog walks, positive canine behaviour, reinforcing simple obedience commands and good house manners. And of course, all good behaviour is rewarded with love, affection and play.This is also a great option for senior dogs who find regular doggie day care too active and stressful. This service will provide you with the peace of mind of knowing exactly who is supervising your dog and that he is receiving positive human guidance and experienced leadership at all times. Not like a crowded doggie day care centre where he can easily adopt negative behaviours, such as pack mentality, and where there are usually many dogs and limited supervision.

This is not your typical doggie daycare service where your drop your dog off and hope for the best but a very exclusive dog day care service that is available for well behaved dogs who are at least one year of age, fully housetrained, non-aggressive, disease free, extremely well socialized around all sizes of dogs, non-destructive and who do not suffer from separation anxiety.

Feeding may be an extra charge. And, as with in-home dog boarding, we regret that we do not accept dogs on a raw diet.

Hours for this dog daycare service: Monday to Friday: 9:00am to 3:00pm. There is no weekend service.

Please note that this service is only currently available to existing Signature Pet Services' clients in North Saanich and Sidney areas.

RECOMMENDED SIGNATURE DOG SERVICE REQUIREMENTS:

1. Current Distemper combo or titer test results; 2. Annual Bordatella vaccine for kennel cough and flea/parasite control program; 3. Current Rabies vaccine; 4. Basic leash manners; 5. Current dog license (not mandatory).

Vaccines are required to help prevent our pets from getting serious and sometimes fatal diseases. It is, however, very important that we do not over-vaccinate our pets. So with that in mind, my above policy where I recommend all vaccines are either current or titer test results indicate vaccination is currently not required is simply that - just my recommendation. If you are a pet owner whose veterinarian advises a more conservative and holistic approach to vaccines due to health concerns or an existing disease - we can certainly discuss this further at our initial consultation.

If your pup is currently receiving medication or supplementation, please advise at time of booking as a small additional fee may be charged for regular administration of medication.

Please note: For the Signature In-home Boarding Service, Signature Dog Daycare and Signature Pet Taxi for Pup or Dog, puppies are not accepted who have any type of skin condition undergoing treatment or who have recently undergone treatment. And, all vaccines are required. This is mandatory.

Signature Pet Services reserves the right to refuse any dog that is anti-social, intact, in heat, pregnant, ill or injured, recovering from injury, and/or who may cause harm to other pets, itself, or the public or who is otherwise unsuitable for Signature Pet Services.
