Behavior and Temperament


Because group playtime is an integral component of daycare, all dogs enrolled in our daycare program must get along well with all types of other dogs. Daycare is not an appropriate arena to attempt to overcome issues of fear or aggression with other dogs.


Dogs in our daycare program are in close contact with each other and thus must be healthy. If your dog is sick, please do not bring him to daycare during the duration of his illness.

Daycare Rates

Daycare Rates - Effective August 1, 2023

Dogs brought in for daycare must be picked up the same day. Daycare rates apply no matter when your dog is dropped off or picked up. 

Our rates do not vary with the size or breed of your pet. Nor do we charge extra for feeding your own food or administering medications you provide, except for injections, as noted below.

Our daycare fee includes two playtimes per day plus a stuffed Kong. Additional fees for medical injections and trips to and from the veterinarian may be charged.

Since area veterinarians are typically not seeing non-clients, our only option may be to take your pet to one of the emergency veterinary hospitals in Maine, which can result in charges for staff time and mileage in addition to the veterinary costs.
