As you head back out into the world, we want to ensure your Dog is also ready to join us for Daycare and/or Overnight Stays.
Dogs like routine and being in a familiar environment. When this changes, they can become uncomfortable. We have developed a Readiness Check to help ensure your Dog is comfortable and feels safe and happy to start their Lucky Dog experience, or welcome them back after being away.
The Readiness Check is:
- A 2-hour visit, during which our staff will observe your Dog’s behavior during activities and staff interactions that are typical during Daycare and/or Overnight Stays.
- Readiness Checks are by appointment only, Monday through Saturday between the hours of 11am – 1pm.
- An opportunity to understand how your Dog is feeling about being away from you, with us, and if applicable, with other Dogs.
- An opportunity to help your Dog feel comfortable and safe at Lucky Dog!
We will document and share our observations with you utilizing a standard checklist that starts with your arrival for the visit. During the next two hours our Dog Care Professionals will be engaging with your Dog and closely observing their reactions. We will read their body language and willingness to engage with us (and if applicable, other Dogs) to check their level of comfort and happiness.
We highly recommend scheduling your Readiness Check visit 30 days prior to the date you plan to have your Dog come Play/Stay. Some dogs will be ready right away and others may need a few visits to get used to being away from you while they get to know us, or get reacclimated after their time away.
For your dog's happiness, it is important not to rush them.
