Tours and Evaluations are handled by appointment only - call or text 817-276-1414
Written proof of vaccinations must be provided for each daycare dog prior to admission to our facility:
Titers testing with acceptable antibody levels are accepted at our discretion. Dogs should be in good health, free from fleas, ticks and matts; and should be on heartworm preventative.
All daycare dogs over 6 months old should be spayed or neutered in order to participate in our enrichment daycare program.
Because we strive to provide a safe, happy and healthy environment for all of our furry guests, we cannot accept puppies without all 3 rounds of their puppy booster shots, as well as Rabies and Bordetella. Puppies need to be at least 4 months of age before starting in our daycare program at this time.
NOTE: WE ARE DEVLOPING A YOUNG PUPPY PROGRAM AND PLAN TO LAUNCH IT MID-END OF 2023. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS EXCITING PROGRAM!
Because doggy daycare requires a friendly, happy atmosphere in order to be successful, it is important that we establish ground rules for behavior. Your dog should be comfortable playing and socializing with other dogs and allowing a new dog into their area without feeling territorial. For the safety of all pets and staff, we require daycare dogs allow us to handle them whenever necessary. For this reason, you may observe us making them sit, stay, etc. and they will not be allowed to jump on us when leashing them or moving them around. This does not mean we don't LOVE your pet(s)! We want them to play and have fun, but it's important for us all that they respect us and behave when asked.
Appointments are requested Monday - Friday for Group-play daycare once you have passed your initial evaluation. However, there are times when we need to allow for space and staffing requirements, so we do require an appointment for the following:
Though we agree (and own a few!) that pitbulls and other so-called bully breeds are great "people" dogs, they are not always great "dog" dogs. Also, we know that ALL DOGS - small and large - can be dangerous if not properly supervised and socialized. Our experience shows that dogs act very differently in our facility than they do at home, in a dog park or when they are out with you.
Each dog is unique, therefore, we require temperament testing before allowing ANY dog into our facility and we reserve the right to turn away any dog unsuitable for our open play-style environment, regardless of size or breed. Likewise, we will accept ANY dog into our facility as long as they play by our rules.
" I cannot say enough good things about Wagtime Doggie Daycare. From the moment the friendly staff greet you and your pup until pick up time, it’s obvious that my Ziggy has had a great time. When we arrive he runs right to the door anxious to " ~Janet S
Because we are an enrichment-based daycare, we spend all day with the dogs making sure they are happy, safe and well-adjusted. For this reason, we ask that you schedule tours and evaluation days in advance so that we may have an additional staff member present to work with you and your pet(s). We don't want you to feel rushed if you have questions, nor do we want to leave our group players unattended.
