Evaluations for Group Play and Group Boarding
Evaluations for group boarding will be done the day of your dogs arrival, however, depending on the time of day you arrive, we may or may not be able to do the introduction with other dogs right at that time due to feeding times and the staff’s schedule. We will give you the approximate time the evaluation will be done so you are able to view this on our web cameras.
Spaying and Neutering
Group rooms and play yards require all dogs must be spayed or neutered if over six months old. Just Like Home can only accommodate dogs that are 4 months or older. If your dogs are not spayed/neutered and over 6 months of age, we offer private suite or kennel with private outdoor play on rotation.
Private Kennel and private outdoor runs are available for $40 a night. Private suites and private outdoor runs also are available and start at $64 and up where your dog will be kept separated from other dogs.
Non Social Dogs
Dogs that are not social with other dogs are allowed to do suite or kennel only and will be given a private yard on a rotation from indoors to outdoors away from other dogs.
Vaccinations, Shot Records
To ensure we keep a healthy atmosphere for our visiting pets, we require compliance with the following rules and regulations.
All dogs must be in good health. Dogs must be living with you for at least 30 days before admission to Day Camp or Overnight Boarding.
