Frequently Asked Questions

PAWESOME PETS COUNTRY CLUB

Facility Questions

Do you offer tours in person?

No, we do not provide in-person tours, as they can be unsettling for the dogs in our care. (Just like if your dog gets riled up when someone new comes to your home, the same happens here–but with ALL the dogs in our facility!) Because our job is to provide a safe and happy place for the dogs, we don’t like to stress them out with strangers coming into their play area. Our focus is on the dogs’ happiness. Please watch our virtual tour to check out our facility!

Do you have a referral program?

Yes! Refer a friend, and for every friend you refer to Pawesome Pets Country Club who books daycare or a boarding stay, your name will be entered into a drawing for a gift basket! THE MORE FRIENDS YOU REFER, THE MORE CHANCES YOU HAVE TO WIN! We’re giving away a new gift basket each month, so be sure to refer new friends each month. *Your friend must enter your first and last name in the “How did you hear about us?” field when they sign up and book their reservation online.

Do you have staff on site overnight?

No, we do not have staff on site overnight, as we want the dogs, cats, and small pets to settle down and get a good night’s sleep. Having staff overnight would cause the dogs to become restless if the staff were to actively check in on them. Instead, we have a security system that notifies us of any movement or activity in the main areas of the building, so if a dog ever got out of its enclosure, it would set off our alarm system and notify us immediately. We also have cameras so we can check in on them remotely overnight if we ever have concerns about an animal at our facility. We also have a smoke detection system that alerts as soon as any smoke is detected. Having all of these measures in place helps ensure that the animals have a safe and restful stay.

Dog Daycare Membership Questions

How does your Daycare membership work?

Daycare days are $30 per visit; reservations are required. A $20 membership fee will be charged on the 1st of every month to maintain an active membership. New club members will be charged a prorated rate for their first monthly membership fee according to the day of the month they join. 

What are the membership eligibility requirements for daycare?

Your dog must meet our age, vaccination, and spay/neuter requirements. If your dog is currently attending daycare elsewhere and does NOT have a bite record, your dog can join now. If your dog is NOT going to daycare currently elsewhere, your dog must attend (and pass) a trial daycare day. 

What are the perks of being a member?

Members with an active membership receive the following perks: 5% OFF boarding stays; 5% OFF retail items; 5% OFF dog food; FREE VALET! Call when you arrive, and we’ll come out to your car!

Is membership required before bringing my dog to daycare?

To ensure your dog is a good fit for daycare, you may sign up for ONE non-member trial day of daycare for $35 before purchasing your prepaid membership. After that we, do require a membership, as it is our goal to create happy, balanced packs of pups who know each other.

Dog Daycare Questions

Does my dog have to be spayed/neutered to come for daycare?

All dogs over 8 months of age MUST be spayed or neutered for daycare. The spayed and neutered dogs may pick on any unaltered dogs, so we want to ensure safety.

What are your daycare hours?

Are dogs put together in one big playgroup regardless of their size or energy level?

We have six different playgroups. We place dogs based on size and playstyle into appropriate playgroups, ranging from teeny-tinies, to tinies, smalls, and 3 groups of big dogs that differ based on energy level and playstyle. So every dog has a playgroup to match their size AND energy level, which helps keep every pup happy and safe. We really try to fit each dog into the best group based on not only their size and playstyle but also their personality traits. 

What kind of enrichment activities do the dogs get in daycare?

Our enrichment-based daycare includes structured activities throughout the day to help your dog learn while they play. Activities include: group sits, group lay downs, follow the leader, high fives, walking with groups off-leash, door/gate manners, extra curricular activities (like bubble time, foam parties, ball pit days, obstacle course, themed days, and hula hoop day) just like you’d see at a children’s daycare, and much more.

Does my dog ever go in a kennel during daycare? And is there a nap time?

Dogs are not placed in kennels during daycare unless specifically requested by the pet parent (e.g., for younger pups or senior dogs who may need a break). There is no specific nap time in the daycare environment, although we encourage rest time from 1 to 3pm.

Can you feed my dog lunch during daycare?

Prepaid packages cannot be refunded if you move out of the area; however, prepaid packages can be transferred to another qualifying dog for the balance of the package.

During boarding, dogs get about 3 hours of playtime each day. Club members can add daycare within their boarding stay for additional play time (only on Mon-Fri). If your dog prefers NOT to play with others (or is not playtime appropriate), they will be let out the same amount of time but with one of our club crew members.

What boarding option do you suggest for my dog?

Does your dog typically get crated at home? If so, we suggest a crate here so that your dog’s boarding stay will be as similar to home as possible. If not, we suggest one of our larger suites like the Fairway or Birdie Suites so your dog has some room to relax but still be surrounded by others in their suites. If your dog has anxiety or issues with being confined, we suggest our Ace Cage-Free Boarding.

What do I need to bring for my dog's boarding stay?

Please bring your dog’s food as well as any toys or treats that are safe for them to have in their crate or suite. You’re welcome to bring a dog bed or blanket (make sure it is machine-washable).
