We ask that all pets visiting be vaccinated. Vaccinations must be given by a liscensed veterinarian at least 48 hours before attending The Groom Room.
What are the benefits of daycare?
Frequent partcipation in our daycare has many benefits, some include:
Do dogs get hurt?
Similar to children on a playground, it is possible for dogs to sustain minor injuries while at doggy daycare. During normal play a dog may end up with small scratches, nicks, or lose some fur. More serious injuries are rare. If serious treatment is needed, we will rush your pup to your personal vet or an emergency vet if your vet is unavailable.
Are you prepared in case of an illness or injury?
Yes! In case of an illness or injury, our first concern is always the well-being of your pet. If necessary, we can take them to the nearest vet, or if possible, their own vet. We will always contact the pet parent in this type of scenario.
I have an older dog, will they enjoy daycare?
All dogs are different, so this will completely depend on each dog. Some of our older daycare visitors do great with the younger companions. Our first day evaluation process will help determine if our enviroment is right for your pet. We also regularly evaluate our players behaviors, so if we find that your pet isn't assimilating well, we will let you know.
This is an enviroment with dogs of different sizes. Is it safe for my smaller dog to be there?
For the safety of our players, with larger group numbers, we will seperate friends into groups bases on size, temperment, and activity level.
What should I expect when my dog comes home from daycare?
Your dog may come home tired. Why? Because it's one of the GREAT benefits of daycare! Dogs play all day so it's natural to be tired after a long day of fun and play! It is not uncommon for dogs to come home and sleep.
Do I need to make a reservation?
Yes! For both, grooming/spa and daycare services, reservations are required. To make a reservation please call The Groom Room during business hours.
Should I feed my dog before coming to play at daycare?
Because daycare is a fun, playful, and an active enviroment we recommend that you feed your dog a minimum of 90 minutes prior to joining in activities to prevent bloat. Bloat can be caused from playing to soon after eating, and it can be deadly. If they have eaten sooner than that, please let our playcare staff know at check-in.
