There is no minimum age to enrol, however we ask that:
Puppies be fully vaccinated (C5 Vaccination) or have received an exemption from their Veterinarian.
Puppies have been in their new home environment for at least two weeks prior to their first day with us. Too many changes in such a crucial learning period for puppies can be potentially overwhelming.
Your puppy is required to have their FULL C5 Vaccination, and have waited the period of time post-vaccination, as recommended by your Veterinarian.
It can get a little tricky trying to work out when your dog is fully vaccinated and ready for daycare, so we suggest either giving us a call or speaking with your Veterinarian directly.
Some Veterinarian’s are encouraging puppies to socialise at a young age, and for this reason will suggest starting daycare prior to the full C5 Vaccination cycle. In this case, we just need to have verbal or written communication with them directly to confirm this.
YES! Making friends and learning doggy socialisation skills can take a lot of energy, and therefore we require all puppies to have a re-fuelling lunch break. We ask that owners supply either a serving of their dog’s regular diet, or purchase one of our Doggy Grub Lunch Orders.
We can’t have fun if we’re hungry or tired, and the same goes for our littlest, furry friends - lunch is a must.
As the RSPCA Australia states, "Proactively socialising your puppy is very important. Puppies have what is called a 'critical socialisation period' between approximately 3 -17 weeks of age. The puppy’s experiences during this critical period of learning and development can influence and shape their behaviour well into adulthood. Providing plenty of opportunities for socialisation and exposure to different environments during this time can help to ensure your puppy grows into a well-adjusted adult that relates well to other dogs, other animals and people,"
... and that's where we come in!
We're passionate about puppies and we know just how important it is to get things right the first time; that's why we've introduced our 'Positive Puppy Pawgram', a socialisation specific program for puppies under six months where they can learn to play and make friends.
It's so important that puppies are offered the opportunity to play, learn and experience positive socialisation in a safe and controlled manner, rather than a large park or seemingly uncontrolled environment.
Affordable, accessible, educational and meaningful; these are the four things that encompass our Dogcity Daycare 'Positive Puppy Pawgram.'
