What to bring:

  • 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 nap
  • You do not need to bring lunch or snacks…we are so busy having fun, our furry friends typically do not want the distraction of being separated for a munchie! We will be sure to make any exceptions necessary if your kid has special dietary needs/requirements or medication that needs to be administered


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; and you are encouraged to let us know if you would like a report card, or any other additional services. 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. Because we take special care to be sure the introduction is positive and safe, it is important that your first visit begins between 8am and 9am; or by appointment only.

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 “like” Dogs Bay Doggie Daycare & Grooming on facebook. We will be posting something special for this first visit.
