The safety of our dogs and staff is very important to us. Due to the nature of our business, we adhere to the following best practices:
Only well socialized dogs are allowed at Doggy Haven Resort. For any age, type, or breed of dog the ideal daycare candidate has most or all of the following experience or behaviors:
Receives regular exercise and mental stimulation at home
Enjoys interaction with other dogs *and* people
Is a healthy and moderately active dog
Has completed some positive reinforcement training or obedience classes
Does not have any bullying, resource guarding, or high prey drive traits
New dogs will need to complete a Meet & Greet
Here is a list of PURE BRED dogs that GENERALLY are not a good fit for our playgroups. If your dog is one of the breeds below, please feel free to call so we can discuss the temperament and socialization of your companions to see if they would be a good fit.
Based on our experience we are unable to accept any purebred Belgian Malinois at this time, we apologize for any inconvenience.
We are proud to partner with Homeward Pet in Woodinville and happy to meet and care for dogs of all backgrounds and situations. If you have welcomed a new rescue into your family here is something to keep in mind before going out of town or starting a new daycare routine. 3/3/3 rule for MOST rescue dogs: Minimum 3 days to “detox” and adjust to being out of the shelter or foster home and being in a new home. Minimum 3 weeks to start to settle, to feel comfortable in their new space with their new family. Minimum 3 months to feel at HOME.
