Getting Started

Wondering how to get started?

All dogs must first pass our Introduction Evaluation before they can be accepted for daycare or boarding in our cage-free daycare environment. This evaluation takes approximately 20 minutes.

If you know your dog enjoys the company of other dogs their size, & plays nicely, we encourage you to come into ADDO for our evaluation.

ADDO welcomes Walk-In Evaluations & Tours 6 Days a Week

Monday – Saturday 9:30am – 2:30pm

$15 per dog

(No Evaluations the day before/ the day of/ & the day after a Major US Holiday’s, or on Major Holiday weekends)
*** Every Sunday: No Tours or Introduction Evaluations. ***

Each new dog will have their opportunity to show our ADDO Manager’s how much they like our doggie oasis!

Which dogs pass their evaluation? Friendly dogs that are at least 3+ months old. If puppies, they must have completed the initial three rounds of booster vaccinations. Must be up-to-date on their annual: Rabies, Bordetella, & Distemper vaccinations. Spayed or neutered after 7 months of age.

Specific play area (Small/ Medium/ or Large play group) is determined by ADDO staff, with consideration to each dog’s: size, weight, age, & temperament.

Which dog’s might NOT pass their evaluation? Dog’s that are usually in charge around other dogs. “Alpha Dog’s” Dog’s that are too high energy/ over powering for their pack. The most extremely shy dogs which may show defensive aggression (simply too nervous to enjoy the fun). mature dogs which have not been around other dogs in their life.

A copy of your dog’s vaccinations, along with a completed copy of our Pet Profile & Owner Agreement are required on/ or before your dog’s first day of evaluation daycare/ boarding/ free play sessions at ‘A Dog’s Day Out’.  It must also be 48 hours after a shoot or booster to be evaluated, attend daycare or boarding for both your own dog and the other dogs safety.
