While we want to love on and play with every Canine Sidekick, we have some requirements for the safety of all guests. Every Sidekick guest must:

-Go through our Orientation Period

-Be up to date on all age-appropriate vaccinations (Rabies, Distemper, Parvo, Bordetella)

-Be clear from any vomiting, diarrhea, sneezing or coughing within 24 hours of their next visit

-Must be outfitted with his or her own snap-release buckle collar with name tag

Orientation Packages

Daycare Orientation Package- $210

This Orientation Package is a mandatory 4-day process for all new Sidekicks wishing to join our daycare program. This time allows our dog trainers to test temperament and playstyle, get an idea of what behaviors your Sidekick may already know, teach the “rules” of the daycare (no jumping, sit at gates and doors, etc.), and gives your dog ample time to get comfortable with their new surroundings and friends.

You can expect your pup to be paired with a dog trainer for slow introduction into a daycare group matched to their size and temperament at their own pace. Once socialization is complete, our dog trainers will work on building behaviors useful to our daycare staff. These behaviors include come, stepping back form gates and doors, sit-stays to be released from kennels, proper play skills, and desensitization to collars being grabbed by humans.

Training Orientation Package- $70

While we would love every doggy guest to enjoy our daycare program, we understand group play isn’t for everyone. If you are interested in boarding, participating in one of our day training or board & train programs, and don’t wish for your dog to participate in group play, this 2-day Orientation Package allows your pup to get acquainted with our facility and staff to better prepare them for their stay or training days.
