Dog Daycare Party Inside, Potty Outside!

Northern VA Dogs deserve Daycare too!

Having your dog attend an award-winning doggie daycare has never been easier! Centrally located on the border of Herndon & Sterling, VA, and a hop away from Reston & Ashburn, sits Northern VA’s Healthy Hound Playground - a 100% cage-free dog daycare where your pup is paired with dogs of similar activity level and size.

Daycare is one of the best ways for your pup to learn positive socialization behavior, get much needed exercise, as well as have companionship and stimulation during the day. Healthy Hound welcomes dogs of all ages and activity levels. Join us today for fellowship and friends at Healthy Hound Playground.

Intro's to our Pack - Required

If you are a new client we require that you make an appointment for your dog to be introduced into our pack. The intro is part of a regular full day or half day of daycare for your dog.

You may drop your dog off at any time prior to their intro time. We will introduce them into the playroom as soon as we are able. Each dog will spend some time in a large canine cottage prior to being introduced into the pack. This allows them time to acclimate to the smells and sounds of our facility, and in our experience, offers the best opportunity for a successful integration.

We stagger times for introductions so that we may give each dog the attention they deserve, to give them the best chance of being successful at our facility.

Once an introduction is completed, a supervisor will notify you of how your pup did.

We look forward to meeting you and your dog!

Spay/Neuter Policy

We accept intact female pups up to age 6 months for both daycare (group play) and boarding. We do not accept intact females over age 6 months for either daycare, day boarding or boarding, but we do accept them for grooming only.

We accept intact male pups up to age 9 months for daycare (group play) and boarding. We still accept intact males over 9 months for boarding and day boarding, but not for group play. We also accept intact males for grooming.

Day Boarding in Sterling

If your dog does well with humans but for any reason isn’t a candidate for group play, we offer an alternative that we call ‘day boarding.’ Your dog can come for the day and stay in a large individual canine cottage, go out for longer outdoor potty breaks, and perhaps do an activity such as a run on our doggy treadmill or an outdoor stroll. The cost for day boarding is the same as regular daycare.

Minimum Group Play Weight Requirement: 10 Pounds

At this time we are not accepting dogs under 10 pounds for group daycare. Please contact us prior to scheduling if you require non-group play boarding for your dog under 10 pounds.

Vaccines

Please note that we will need vaccination records prior to your appointment. You may email or upload them to your customer profile.

As a gentle reminder, at Healthy Hound it is the customer’s responsibility to provide vaccination records in order to use our services. Our staff is not responsible for calling vets.

Rabies – Required
Distemper – Required
Bordetella – Required (6 month vaccine highly encouraged!)
Lepto – Highly Encouraged – Note: If your dog receives a 3 year Distemper/Lepto combination vaccine, the Lepto portion is only good for 1 year!
Canine Influenza – Highly Encouraged!

Pack Introductions and 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. 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.
