  • Drop off times are between 7 AM- 9 AM.
  • Pick up times are between 4 PM- 5 PM.
  • On the evaluation day, your dog will meet our VIPaws tails & staff, get acquainted with our home, bond with their new buddies on our pack walk, & enjoy the benefits of a full day of doggie daycare.
  • On the evaluation day, we will process all paperwork and fees, provide a tour of our setup, and evaluate your dog‘s temperament & behavior through supervised introductions.
  • Upon successful completion of the evaluation day, you may sign up for any future services.

Payment Requirements

  • We require cash payment upon drop off.  All reservations are finalized 48 hours prior to drop off and there are no refunds.

Deposit Requirements

  • Because we are a small business & limit the number of dogs we take in at a time, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit to book a sleepover reservation.
