Daycare & Boarding Safety Guidelines & Requirements

Here’s what we do, or need you to do, to keep the dogs safe:

  1. Temperament evaluation: All daycare and boarding dogs are evaluated to make sure that Doggie Daycare Delight   will be a good environment for them.
  2. Vaccinations: current DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Para influenza, Parvovirus), Rabies and Bordetella. After a first Bordetella, or after it has expired, there is a one-week waiting period to come in.
  3. Negative fecal exam: first-time visitors need to show a fecal that’s negative for worms, parasites and Giardia; how recent this needs to be depends on your dog’s activities (for instance, frequent dog-park visits vs. rarely playing outside)…generally 2 to 6 months. Once you start coming to Doggie Daycare Delight  then an annual test is acceptable.
  4. Flea and tick preventatives: must be applied seasonally, April to November
  5. Newly adopted dogs: there’s a 2-week waiting period after a dog has been adopted to ensure the health and well being of all dogs in the daycare and boarding facilities.
  6. Authorization: every client signs an agreement that includes authorization to treat your dog at one of our affiliated veterinary clinics in the event of an emergency.
  7. Spay/neuter: all dogs must be spayed or neutered at 6 months or within the sixth month (by 7 months of age)
  8. Heartworm disease: Even though heartworm disease is only  spread thru the bite of a mosquito,we recommend you keep your dog on a heartworm preventative medication year round.

    New dogs MUST come for a FREE  trial-day before being accepted for daycare at Doggie Daycare Delight.  Please complete our Standard Registration Agreement.
    If you are unable to accomplish these tasks online, please call us at (815) 788-5160.
    You also need to provide us with proof of your dog being fully vaccinated and having a negative fecal exam before their first free day of daycare.


Please read our handout on What to expect for your dog at dog daycare.
