DOGGY DAYCARE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FORM
For the safety of everyone, all dogs are required to enter and exit the facility on-leash. Remember, your dog may be friendly, but we may have other dogs in the lobby that have not been assessed yet, are not friendly with strangers or struggle with greeting other dogs outside of the daycare environment.
2. Temperament Assessment
All doggy guests must undergo an initial temperament assessment at Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training to ensure the safety of all our guests and employees. Please schedule a temperament assessment with our dog handlers before your reservation.
3. Vaccination Policy
Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training will not accept any pets on our premises that are not fully vaccinated. The original or certified version of your pet's vaccination card must be presented on or before their first visit, which we will then photocopy/scan for our own records if we do not already have the latest version.
We require your dog to be fully vaccinated against Distemper, Canine Hepatitis, Leptospirosis and Parvovirus, and Bordetella (Kennel Cough). For Bordatella intranasal administration a 3 day stand-down period is needed, for the remaining vaccines the stand down period is 10 days. We recommend the Bordetella vaccination be administered every 6 months.
All dogs must be in good health. Owners will certify their dog(s) are in good health and have not been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days. Upon admission, all dogs must be free from any condition which could potentially jeopardize other pets. Dogs that have been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days will require veterinarian certification of health to be admitted or readmitted.
All dogs must be non-aggressive to all types of dogs. Owners will certify their dogs have not harmed or shown an aggressive or threatening behavior toward any person or any other dog(s). Please remember: your pet will be spending time with other dogs and the safety and health of all animals is our main concern. In order to maintain a safe play environment for the dogs, any dog that shows problematic behaviour will be given a time-out from the group play area, and further training needs or alternative services may be discussed.
6. Hours & Late Pick-up Policies
Monday - Friday hours: 7am -6pm
Fri-Sat/ Public holiday hours: Daycare closed
Daycare Check-out policy: Guests must be picked up by 6pm on weekdays.. All day care guests staying past business hours will be charged out of office hour rates of $15 per 10 minutes late.
7. Tags & Microchips
Whangarei District Council Registration Tag & Microchipping: By law, Whangarei District Council requires all dogs to be registered and wear tags, and for your dog to be microchipped. We don't require this for your pet to stay at Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training but we do recommend that your dog is registered/microchipped.
8. Flea and Internal Parasite Control
All doggy guests must have been treated with an effective form of monthly flea and tick control treatment (Frontline or similar product). If external parasites are discovered upon check-in you will be notified and treatment options will be discussed as per your treatment regimen
9. Feeding/ Medication
Our daycare guests are fed small amounts of Iams biscuits or Black Hawk biscuits throughout the day to reinforce positive behaviour. If you have any other requirements, please let us know. Owners are encouraged to bring their own brand of dog food if your dog is sensitive to diferent brands. For puppies (up to 6 months for small breeds and 11 months for large breeds) you may want to increase the typical
amount of food that your dog typically eats due to the increased activity level. We do ask each portion be in its own sealed plastic bag or container. Please label each bag with the pet’s name, this will make it much easier for our caretakers to make sure that your pet is fed in accordance with your wishes.
Please let us know when you check in if your dog is allergic to anything or if you do not want your dog to have any treats.
10. Age/ Sex
All guests staying at Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training must be at least 4 months old. Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training does not accept entire male dogs over 7 months of age. Female dogs on heat must stay away from daycare until 2 weeks after their heat has finished. Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training reserves the right to ask clients to keep their bitches away if they are presenting with hormone-related behaviours, even if a heat is not directly present.
11. Weight loss or gain
Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training recommend that their pet is kept at a healthy Body Condition Score of between 4 -5. Obese dogs (score of 7.5 upwards) may be asked to lose weight before they return, or to make a specific plan around lengths of time spent in daycare at this weight, as being overweight in the daycare may cause heart problems, overheating and anxiety or even aggression. Please check with your veterinarian if you are concerned about your dog's Body Condition Score.
While we strive to achieve a safe environment for all dogs at Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training, we cannot entirely prevent accidents, injuries, illnesses, or changes in behavior. By bringing your dog to Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training, you accept these risks and you release Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training and its staff from all liability arising from the occurrence of such events.
Just as when you send a child to school, dogs can get colds, coughs, stomach bugs and other contagious diseases. Just as your child’s school does not pay for doctor’s visits when your child is injured or becomes sick, Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training does not pay for vet bills if your dog becomes sick or is injured while with us.
13. Veterinary attention
If your pet becomes ill under Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training’s care, we will take him or her to your preferred veterinarian specified on the Registration Form. If you have not specified your own preferred vet on our form, or if your vet is unavailable, we will use our preferred veterinary clinic. Scallywags Doggy Daycare & Training is not liable for veterinary fees for care provided to your pet while in our care.
