All dogs must have completed 3 vaccinations before they come to daycare; rabies, distemper and bordatella. Bordatella must be done 11 days prior to starting daycare. We need a copy of your current vaccinations for your dog’s file. Dogs over 8 months old must be spayed or neutered. Your dog must be healthy and free of parasites. We ask that you apply topical flea and tick solutions during the weekend.
Before starting daycare, we do temperament evaluations with all new dogs to make sure they are friendly with people and dogs. We ask that you schedule an appointment before coming in. Appointments are scheduled on the hour and half hour. They usually take 20 – 30 minutes. During this time we introduce your dog slowly to other dogs who are in daycare. If your dog looks like a happy and healthy fit, you are good to go with daycare. We ask for 24 hour notice for daycare reservations. Generally we can accept walk-ins, but if we are at capacity we will have to say no for that day. The days and times for temperament evaluations are as follows:
Crate Escape Belmont: 11am – 2pm, Monday – Friday. Saturdays: 2 times available; 12:00 and 12:30pm.
Crate Escape too: 11am – 2pm, Monday – Friday
Crate Escape Charlestown: 11am – 3:30pm, Monday – Friday
