Welcome to Dogs Bay North!

We are so excited to have your furry one hang out with us for a day of fun and loving and snuggles and bubbles!!!

In order to make your first visit with us as easy as possible, please note the following:

Our Vaccination Requirements

  • Negative fecal test result within the last 6 months
  • A negative heartworm test if your fur kid is a year or older
  • Bordatella vaccination
  • Distemper vaccination
  • Rabies vaccination

 Our office staff will call your veterinarian to confirm vaccine information for your first day of play. Moving forward, it will be your responsibility to keep your dog’s information current and on file.  We recommend simply bringing in your receipt as confirmation and we will update your dog’s file.  Please note we will not be sending out vaccination reminders!

What to bring:
Flat “quick release” collar. We require that all of our fur friends wear this collar for safety purposes. We do not want anything on our friends that could get caught on a toy, a fence, another dog. If you have any questions about what a quick release collar is, we are happy to assist. We have a few quick release collars available in the lobby for $3.00-$10.00 depending on the size.

  • Your dog should be on leash (in your possession) from the car into the facility. We will have a designated cubby for you so nothing will get lost or mixed up!
  • You do not need to bring a bed, or blanket, we have plenty of snuggly blankets, cots and beds available for a quick nap.

What to expect on your first day

You will be greeted by a staff member who will ask you to sign in at the check in desk.  If you would like a report card or the team to feed your tail-wagger a lunch/snack or administer medication, all of that is available at an extra fee of $1/day each. 

Once you have checked in, we will secure our newest friend in our middle play area, let him/her sniff around a bit and get familiar with us, before we begin the introduction to all of his/her new friends. We will gradually integrate new fur friends in as your dog becomes comfortable and ready to play.

It is very likely that you will be greeted with some happy and excited sounds as you enter the facility!!! Our friends are always very happy to be with us and each other, and a new friend is definitely something to cheer about!!!

We know that your fur kid is a beloved member of your family! Our “kids” first day at school is a big one, no matter if they are 2 legged kids or 4 legged kids and because we understand this, we want you to be able to see what we see!

We encourage you to visit and “like” Dogs Bay North Doggie Daycare on Facebook. We will be posting something special for this first visit as well as daily photos so you can check in on your tail-wagger’s day!

You may drop off and pick up anytime during our normal business hours of 7 am to 6 pm.  Picking your fur kid up on time is important!  Special arrangements can be made for an early drop off or late pick up, just ask a team member.  There will be a late fee of $5/15 minutes if you have not made previous arrangements.

Payment is expected at the time of service: To maintain the awesome price of only $17/day we accept cash and check only…no credit cards.

 For future visits, once you are an established client and required vaccines are on file,  you may simply drop your fur friend off any day/time.  We are staffed for all our tail-waggers to come play so no sign up is necessary.
Please Note: In the event of inclement weather, if West Ottawa Schools are closed, Doggie Daycare will be closed.

Thank you for entrusting your precious tail-wagger with us!

You are truly giving your fur friend the best gift of all by bringing him/her to doggie daycare! We are confident the benefits of doggie daycare far outweigh the risks.

Time to Play!!!
