Q: How do I know my dog will be safe at Paws Here?
A: Every dog at Paws Here has been interviewed to ensure that s/he is friendly towards
other dogs. Also, the dogs are constantly monitored.

Q: Will my dog adjust to doggy daycare/boarding? He’s never been away from home.
A: Some dogs require a little more adjusting than others. In some cases, it helps the pet to only stay for a few hours during it’s first visit and build up to a whole day and then boarding. Dogs are required to spend at least a half day before boarding to become more comfortable, to get to know us and for us to get to know them. Most shy dogs or dogs that haven’t been socialized enough usually benefit tremendously from daycare. They become less shy, more socialized and have a great time!

Q: Does Paws Here ever give drugs to the dogs?
A: Paws Here never administers any medication other than what is provided by the
pet’s owner. We help over excited pets by giving them lots of exercise and playing with them.

Q: How do I make reservations for daycare or boarding for my dog who has never been there before?
A: You can call Paws Here and schedule an interview. (free of charge). At the interview, the dogs shot records are reviewed (rabies and distemper are required) and the dogs temperament is tested to make sure he is friendly to people and to other dogs. After the interview, your dog may come for daycare at any time. We ask for 1 day of daycare and for 3 days notice prior to boarding.

Q: Can I bring my own food?
A: You are required to bring your pets food. It’s much better for the pet to continue on their regular diet. For boarders, you are also welcome to bring a special blanket or bed that will make them feel comfortable.

Q: What if my dog acts aggressively toward another dog while at Paws Here?
A: If the act is mild, the dog will be placed in a timeout until s/he has calmed down. If the aggression causes harm to another dog, you will be responsible for any veterinary care for that dog and your dog will not be allowed back unless the behavior has been modified through training.

Q: My dog went to training school but is still not trained. Can you help him/her?
A: We offer several different training classes to meet your needs; however, we cannot train your dog without your help. An owner must be willing to commit to a minimum of 10 minutes per day to be successful with training their dog.
