Frequently Asked Doggie Daycare Questions
Q: How do you decide what play group my dog will be in?
A: Our staff will perform a temperament evaluation on your dog at the very beginning of their first visit. They will then be matched with other dogs that we know very well of a similar size and energy level.
Q: I know my dog isn't always the best in social situations, but I want help showing her that it can be fun. What do you suggest I do?
A: As with anytime you're entrusting someone to care for your pet, it is important that you give us as much information as possible about your pet. We are always willing to attempt to socialize your dog, however, we will NEVER jeopardize any of our guests health or safety in that attempt. If your pet is giving us signs that they are uncomfortable with socialization then we must listen to those signs and we're happy to give them all of the human interaction and playtime they want instead.
Q: What time should my dog arrive for daycare?
A: Our daycare drop off times have been set for 6am for those customers that must drop off their pets before work. We like to have all daycare guests checked in by 9am so they don't miss any playgroups. If you're doing a half day (any 4 hour visit) starting in the afternoon, drop off between 12-1pm is best.
Q: Will my dog get injured at daycare?
A: The safety of our guests is always our top priority. In our initial evaluations, we make every attempt to make sure social daycare visitors do not display any aggressive behavior. We closely monitor dogs and keep play on a fun, friendly basis. Our staff is trained to identify and intervene in any over excitement, fearful, disrespectful or dominant behavior immediately. However, dogs do use their mouths & paws to play; therefore, little scratches are not uncommon.
Q: What if there is bad weather?
A: Janry has several areas for our daycare guests. We have two indoor areas as well as an outside covered play pavilion. All of our outside areas have giant shade cabannas for our guests comfort.
Q: How does Janry Doggie Daycare benefit my dog?
A: The benefits of our Doggie Daycare program are amazing! Besides having fun, doggie daycare has lots of health benefits. Exercise, socialization, stress relief as well as fresh air and fun are a recipe for a healthy happy dog! Pets stay fit, sleep better, and suffer fewer symptoms of stress.
For young dogs, it teaches them invaluable social skills that will help them learn how to properly meet and interact with a variety of other dogs. For the energetic dogs it gives them an outlet for all of the energy other than your couch! It also helps with pets who may get one too many cookies each day to make sure they stay trim and fit.
Q: How will Doggie Daycare Benefit my Family?
A: Doggie daycare is a great alternative to leaving your dog home alone or in a crate. Dog owners know that our pooches are most happy when they have a chance to roam, explore, and socialize. And all too often, high energy dogs resort to undesirable behavior such as chewing or going to the bathroom in the house when left to their own devices while you are away.
Doggie daycare at Janry is the perfect “drop and go” experience for busy families and working puppy parents. You can drop off your dog bright and early knowing that they are fed, played with, and loved throughout the day.
Dogs are naturally social creatures. Doggie daycare gives your dog a chance to romp and play – expelling all that extra energy. It also affords them the opportunity to build friendships with other dogs that are often essential to well-balanced social development.

Q: How large are your playgroups?
A: Typically we don't have more than 10-12 dogs in a playgroup and there are always 2 staff members closely monitoring the play with that many guests.
Q: Do you have any breed restrictions?
A: No. We will provide daycare service for any dog based on their demonstrated behavior. Each guest has a thorough individual evaluation on their first visit. Any dog that demonstrates unprovoked aggression or malicious behavior will be removed from our social daycare setting and we will recommend individual human interactive play time from there forward.
