    • Woofy is a cage and kennel free daycare facility. This means while your dog is attending daycare at Woofy, they are never in a cage or kennel for down time or breaks. They spend all day in a playgroup and should they feel the need for a break or nap they can do so without being pestered.
  • What does a screening consist of?
    • Our screening process consists of one on one interaction with a trained staff member to understand your pup’s temperament. They are then introduced to a few of our most welcoming four legged members, where we can assess their interactions.

    • All they need to enjoy a day at Woofy is a leash and a desire to have fun!
    • Some owners send food with the dog’s name on it if they missed breakfast or a need lunch.
  • How do the bus stops work?
    • Each bus stop has designated times the bus will be there for drop-offs and pick-ups. The time window is based on the cumulative average time customers get to and leave work/home. We do offer flexibility if needed to cater to our customer’s needs.
  • What if I am running late to the bus stop?
    • If you are running late to meet the bus, let us know that you are running behind. We do our best to wait for every dog that is scheduled, but please note that some buses have tight schedules that they need to adhere to.
  • What is in-home boarding?
    • During your dog’s stay with us, they attend daycare Monday through Friday and go home with one of our trained staff at the end of the day to stay in their home as if they were one of their own dogs. On the weekends, they hang out in our staff’s home and get to participate in activities such as playing in the yard, lounging on the couch (if allowed on furniture), or even go to the park.
    • Crates and furniture privileges are all customer preference. We don’t want to create bad habits while they are under our care. 
  • How do I handle the first day jitters?
    • It is perfectly normal to have concerns and anxiety when sending your baby off on a new adventure without you being able to be there. We assure you that we will take care of them like they are our own. We can also send you updates/ pictures of your pup throughout the day.
  • What if my dog is nervous?
    • We will never force a dog into a situation that will make matters worse. We have all day to ease your pup into their new surroundings. Our philosophy is to have a calm and relaxing experience for all of our dogs.
  • My dog doesn’t like crates. What can we do to make it easier for them on the bus?
    • It is normal for some dogs to be a little nervous of the bus at first. To alleviate this, we will have helpers on the bus that will be there to help them relax during the ride. It can take a few times of getting in and out of the bus before they settle in.
  • What are the protocols for a medical emergency?
    • All injuries are reported immediately and communicated with the owner.
    • In situations where immediate medical attention is needed, the dog will be taken to get the care they need and the owner will be notified as soon as possible.
  • What should I expect when my dog comes home after the first day at the Woofy Wellness Ranch®?
    • Do not be alarmed if your dog comes home and wants to sleep for a day or so. They have had more stimulation than normal (mentally and physically) and can become quite tired. Typically it will take a couple of visits to Woofy Wellness Ranch® before you notice any beneficial behavioral changes.
