I am aware of the vaccination requirements for my dogs visit and I agree it is my responsibility to get this information to Paradigm.
I, the undersigned owner, understand that in case of an emergency, Paradigm Dog School Doggie Daycare staff reserves the right to take my dog to the veterinarian of their choice, should my dog require medical attention. I agree to reimburse Paradigm Dog School Doggie Daycare for any financial expenses that incur as result of medical treatment for my dog. Provided all due and diligent care is exercised at all times, I hereby waive and release Paradigm Dog School Doggie Daycare from any and all liability of any nature due to illness or injury.
Check here if you understand this agreement.
We are so excited to have your furry one hang out with us for a day of fun and loving and snuggles and bubbles!!!
In order to make your first visit with us as easy as possible, please note the following:
Your dog should be on leash (in your possession) from the car to the building and back.
Our Vaccination Requirements
Negative fecal test result within the last 6 months
A negative heartworm test if your fur kid is a year or older
Our office staff will call your veterinarian to confirm vaccine information for your first day of play. Moving forward, it will be your responsibility to keep your dog’s information current and on file. We recommend simply bringing in your receipt as confirmation and we will update your dog’s file. Please note we will not be sending out vaccination reminders!
All dogs at doggie daycare must be spayed or neutered. It is understandable that some vets and/or breeders may recommend a longer time frame to spay or neuter your pet for health reasons. Unless an exception is made by management, all dogs must be fixed before they turn 7 months.
What to expect on your first day
You will be greeted by a staff member who will ask you to sign in at the check in desk. If you would like a report card or the team to feed your tail-wagger a lunch/snack or administer medication, all of that is available at an extra fee of $1/day each.
Once you have checked in, we will secure our newest friend in our middle play area, let him/her sniff around a bit and get familiar with us, before we begin the introduction to all of his/her new friends. We will gradually integrate new fur friends in as your dog becomes comfortable and ready to play.
It is very likely that you will be greeted with some happy and excited sounds as you enter the facility!!! Our friends are always very happy to be with us and each other, and a new friend is definitely something to cheer about!!!
We know that your fur kid is a beloved member of your family! Our “kids” first day at school is a big one, no matter if they are 2 legged kids or 4 legged kids and because we understand this, we want you to be able to see what we see!
We encourage you to visit and “like” Paradigm Dog School Doggie Daycare on Facebook. We will be posting something special for this first visit as well as daily photos so you can check in on your tail-wagger’s day!
You may drop off and pick up anytime during our normal business hours of 7 am to 6 pm. Picking your fur kid up on time is important! Special arrangements can be made for an early drop off or late pick up, just ask a team member. There will be a late fee of $5/15 minutes if you have not made previous arrangements.
Payment is expected at the time of service: To maintain the awesome price of only $25/day we accept cash and check only…no credit cards.
For future visits, once you are an established client and required vaccines are on file, you may simply drop your fur friend off any day/time. We are staffed for all our tail-waggers to come play so no sign up is necessary.
All new fur friends have a 3 visit introduction period where we get to know your fur friend and where he/she best fits into the program. During the introduction period we do ask that you sign up. After these 3 visits your fur friend will be assigned a play group based on size, temperament, and social successes. Some play groups do require a sign up due to space and staffing needs. If your fur friend is assigned a play group that requires a sign up you will be notified via email.
Please Note: In the event of inclement weather, if West Ottawa Schools are closed, Doggie Daycare will be closed.
Thank you for entrusting your precious tail-wagger with us!
You are truly giving your fur friend the best gift of all by bringing him/her to doggie daycare! We are confident the benefits of doggie daycare far outweigh the risks.
Time to Play!!!
Paradigm Dog School Doggie Daycare Team
BENEFITS VS RISKS
Similar to children in school, bugs can be passed from dog to dog in a group environment. From a simple tummy bug to the canine flu or bordatella (canine/kennel cough) and/or fecal oral parasites.
Prevention/Treatment: We require the bordatella vaccine and we recommend the canine flu vaccine, but both have different strains of the bacteria/virus, so you can vaccinate for one strain but still get another. We also require fecal checks every 6 month and disinfect your play yards weekly.
Viral papillomas are round, but often have a rough, almost jagged surface– like a cauliflower. They generally occur on the lips and muzzle of a young dog (typically less than 2 years of age). Less commonly, papillomas can occur on the eyelids and even the surface of the eye or between the toes. Papilloma tumors are not dangerous and will go away on their own.
Prevention/Treatment: We do random weekly checks of the dog’s mouths to check for Papilloma, but you should also check your dog at home.
We highly recommend having your dog on flea/tick prevention! Ticks especially are prevalent in our area! If you use the Soresto Flea/Tick collars, you will need to remove the collar prior to bringing your dog to daycare/preschool as they do not have a quick release option, so they pose a safety risk for dogs playing together.
Prevention/Treatment: We will remove a tick if we find one on your dog, but if we see any fleas, you will be contacted for immediate pick up of your fur friend.
Dogs process stress very differently than humans. They do not process negative stress and positive stress separately, so the stress of a busy, fun filled day can cause some stress diarrhea, especially for new daycare/preschool friends.
Prevention/Treatment: If your dog has diarrhea while in our care, we will take the dog’s temperature. If the dog does not have an elevated temperature, we can assume stress is the trigger. We may give your dog a break during the day. If your dog has an elevated temperature, you will be called for immediate pick up.
Dogs get very excited to greet mom/dad and new friends! Drop off and pick up times are a time of very high energy and the dogs can be very vocal. We promise the dogs do not bark all day long! The dogs usually calm down and settle in nicely once all the fur friends are in attendance for the day.
The dogs get very excited when owners start showing up and it can cause issues at the fence and/or gates. When you arrive to drop off or pick up your fur friend, please do not approach the fence and it’s best not to call out to your dog in the play yard as it causes excitement in the dogs.
Dogs are pack animals and operate on pack structure and hierarchy. They may “scuffle” for dominance and/or position. With this said, doggie disagreements are inevitable. Most are just a form of communication and although they are loud and sometimes physical, they do not result in injury…similar to kids getting into a pushing match.
We will always alert you if your dog has been involved in a doggie disagreement. We classify them as “appropriate in nature” and “inappropriate in nature”. If the disagreement was “inappropriate in nature”, a consult via phone or email, with the owner and Certified Trainer Bob, will be necessary before your dog can return to daycare.
Dogs play by “mouthing” and some have to learn to play appropriately….until they do, they can mouth another fur friend a little too hard causing a little puncture to their friend’s ear, muzzle, neck, etc. We do our best to keep the play at an appropriate level, but some dogs love to play rambunctiously! They also run, jump, wrestle and dig and can get a few boo boos here and there. We’ve had dogs get scrapes/cuts from running into the play equipment, break a toenail by jumping on the gates, pull a muscle from over exertion or stopping/starting too quickly and the pea stone in the play yards can cause some sensitivity to some dog’s pads of their feet until their pads toughen up a little (similar to going barefoot the first few times in the summer).
Prevention/Treatment: We do everything we can to keep the fur kids safe, but at the end of the day, they are there to play and we can regulate, but not control every dog interaction. A few minor boo boos are to be expected.

If your dog shows any signs of these conditions while in our care, we will separate your pet and contact you for immediate pick up, within the hour. If your pet is not picked up within the hour, a rate of $2/hour will be added for the extra staff needed to care for your pet.
