Medication

  • While we do not charge to administer medication, we do require it to be brought in the original prescription bottle – do not bring medication in pill pockets, in other food items, or in plastic baggies. *Please note! We do not accept any medications that require gloves to administer.

Multi-Dog Households

  • Dogs of the same family are welcome to stay together in the same cottage, or they may stay separately at your request. There is no difference in cost.

Overnight Items

  • While we do provide our signature canine cots, it is often helpful for some dogs to have items in their kennel that remind them of home.
  • Please feel free to pack your dog’s bed (small to medium sized only), a blanket, and/or favorite toy. We want your pup to have what he or she needs to be as comfortable as possible when in the kennel at nighttime. Our advice is not to bring your dog's nicest things. Accidents do happen in the kennels and fur migrates!
  • Please make sure to label all of your dog’s items with his first and last name.

Mealtime

  • Our meals take place at 6am for breakfast, 11am-12pm for lunch, & 7pm for dinner. We do not provide meals outside of these times.
  • There is a $5 service fee for lunch only for dogs 1+ years. Exceptions can be made for dogs that have health issues or difficulty keeping on weight. There is no service fee for lunch for puppies under 1 year.
  • If you are concerned about your dog losing weight due to the extra calories burned during daily daycare, please adjust feeding instructions accordingly.
  • We provide all meals with high quality stainless steel bowls that are cleaned after each use.
  • Unless your dog uses a ‘special bowl’ like a slow feeder for example, kindly leave all dog bowls, measuring cups and can lids at home. Make sure to label the special bowl with first and last name if possible.
  • Some dogs have sensitive tummies and owners may find it best to keep them on their own food during their stay.
  • Please feel free to bring in your dog’s regular food in pre-portioned amounts for each meal you would like him or her to have.
  • You may also bring in a large container of food, and indicate on drop-off how much you would like us to feed at each meal.
  • We provide house food - 'Sweet Potato & Salmon' dry kibble by Nature’s Domain - for dogs that do well on various brands of food. No dog will go hungry!

Required Pack Introductions & Evaluations

At Healthy Hound, your dog’s playgroup introduction/evaluation will be on their first day of daycare, and there is no extra charge for this service. (Sterling location new clients are required to make an appointment for your dog to be introduced into our pack.)

After you drop your dog off for their first day, we will introduce them into the playroom as soon as we are able. We stagger times for introductions so that we may give each dog the attention they deserve, to provide them the best chance of being successful at our facility.

A trained staff member will gradually integrate your dog with the appropriate pack. There is not a standard duration for an introduction – some dogs take only a few minutes, while others can take longer. After the introduction has occurred, and your pup has been given some time to adjust, you will receive a call from the supervisor to advise you on how things went. To ensure the playroom stays as calm as possible, we do not allow parents to view the integration process.

We look forward to getting to know your dog!
