To ensure that we are able to keep our guests as safe as possible,
each new dog is asked to come in for a temperament test. During
this process, we, along with the dog owner watch as we carefully
and slowly introduce the new dog to a selection of our established
guests one at a time.
There is a $25 charge for this process, which includes a trial half
day of daycare. The trial day can be done on the same day as the
temperament test or on a later date, but MUST precede the first
The temperament test takes only about 25 - 30 minutes, and an
appointment is required. The only thing we need you to bring is
a copy of your dog's current vaccination records.
All dogs are required to be current on the following vaccinations:
Canine Influenza, Rabies, DHLPP, and Bordetella,and be spayed or
neutered if over 6 months of age.
Temperament tests are performed by appointment. Please call for availability.
Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting pure-bred pitbulls or purebred Boxers. Although we love both breeds, we have found over time that these two breeds are not suitable to our cage-free environment. We apologize for the inconvenience!
We also cannot accept dogs smaller than 8 lbs. For their own safety, we recommend you consider our small-dog-only facility, Munchkinland, in Manhattan Beach. That facility provides daycare Monday-Friday, but has no overnight boarding services.
