STEP 1 - MEET REQUIREMENTS
Midtown’s requirements are in place to ensure a safe and healthy environment for both pets and staff. Please note that it is best to administer vaccinations at least a few days before coming to Midtown or any kennel. First, this gives the vaccination time to incubate and thus better protect your pet. Additionally, some pets may have negative reactions to vaccinations shortly after they are administered. We recommend having your vet fax or email vaccination records prior to your evaluation. You may also bring in a paper copy with you upon check-in.
Additional Requirements for Boarding and Daycare Dogs:
+ Spayed or neutered if over 7 months
+ Must not exhibit aggressive behavior towards other dogs or people
+ Must play well and socialize well with other dogs
Cat Requirements (Grooming only):
+ Current on Rabies and FVRCP
Requirements for All Dogs (Grooming, Boarding, & Daycare):
+ Current on Rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
+ At least 3 months old, although 4 months of age is encouraged for the health of your pet. Puppies are still developing their immune systems at an early age, thus there is a slightly higher risk factor for young puppies in any kennel environment.
STEP 2 - FILL OUT FORMS
Fill out the forms online or print beforehand to save time. You can also fill in when you come in for your first visit! The Pet Services Agreement must be signed on a hard copy.
STEP 3 - EVALUATION (Not Needed for Grooming)
All new boarding and daycare dogs come in for a free evaluation day, which is simply a full day of daycare provided free of charge. During the evaluation, our trained staff will introduce your dog into the play environment and observe how he or she behaves in a social setting. This process not only helps us to ensure the safety and compatibility of all dogs visiting Midtown, but acclimates your dog to our environment.
Evaluations are by appointment. Contact us or call 512-477-8079.
Once your dog completes the evaluation, you are free to book boarding and daycare reservations as needed!
