Rules to Play...

Safety is our number one priority at Paws in the City. Cooper and Maple are my fur babies, and I'd be devastated if anything ever happened to one of them. Paws in the City is a boutique dog daycare. We require more vaccines than most daycares, and have zero tolerance policy for aggression. Just because your dog has been to the dog park or other daycares doesn't mean they will automatically be a fit at Paws in the City. Having high standards for vaccines and zero tolerance for aggression means we are able to keep everyone happy, healthy and safe! 


Here are some rules to ensure every pup is kept safe, happy, and healthy while playing with the pack! 

  • All dogs must have an application and health records on file before their first day at daycare. Scroll down to find instructions on filling out an application. 

  • Dogs must be at least 16 weeks old and have basic potty training. 

  • Dogs over 9 months old must be fixed. 

  • Dogs must be in good overall health, free of ticks, fleas and be up to date on vaccines. No communicable condition with in the last 30 days. 

  • We require: rabies, distemper, kennel cough and canine influenza vaccinations. 

  • Dogs cannot be possessive of toys or space (must play well with others!) No aggressive dogs.

  • We have a zero tolerance policy for aggression. If your dog has an aggressive interaction with another dog where the skin is broken, that dog will be asked not to come back. to daycare. If a dog has a disagreement with another dog that does not break the skin, we have a 3 strikes policy. 

  • Daycare packages are non-refundable, but do not expire! If you have purchased a daycare package for your dog, and are asked not to come back due to our zero aggression policy, the remainder of the package is forfeited. 

  • We offer 4 large play areas for dogs to play during the day. We don't have scheduled crate time, however, we reserve the right to put dogs who need a break in a suite, crate, or play area by themselves.

  • We discourage barking at the daycare. Some barking while playing is normal, but dogs can play with out excessive barking. We use spray bottles with water to spray dogs who bark excessively. 

  • You may drop your dog off for daycare between the hours of 7am-1pm. No drop offs after 1pm.

  • First day of daycare is free for local residents of greater Holland area only!
