Daycare and Boarding Requirements

Daycare/Boarding Requirements:

  • Pet must be four months of age or older. (This is to ensure that they are fully
        vaccinated, which does not happen before 16 weeks.)
  • Pets must be spayed or neutered. We cannot make any exceptions to this rule
        for the health and safety of all of our animals.
  • Pet must be altered for two weeks prior to a scheduled interview day, daycare, 
        or boarding reservation.
  • Pet must be up‐to‐date on the following vaccines: Rabies (1‐ or 3‐year), DHPP 
        (1‐ or 3‐year), and Bordatella/Tracheo‐bronchitis (every 6 months). Vaccines 
        must be in the system for two weeks prior to any scheduled interview day, daycare,
        or boarding reservation to ensure proper immunization.
  • Pet must have proof of a negative Heartworm test and be on a monthly Heartworm 
        and flea preventative.
  • Pet must be in good health. Any pet undergoing treatment for a contagious illness 
        or displaying signs of a contagious illness will not be permitted to stay.
  • Pet must be non‐aggressive to people. This includes food, toy, and
        space aggression.
  • Pet must pass an Interview Day before making reservations. This is a four‐hour trial 
        period ($10.00 cost) during which the dog is kennel‐tested and staff‐tested to ensure that       no aggressive pets come into the program.
  • Pet must be wearing a quick‐release or martingale collar. No spike, chain, or choke 
        collars allowed for safety reasons. Harnesses are allowed
    •  Spots must be reserved at least 48 hours ahead of time to ensure space. 
Daycare and Boarding Practices

We know when you trust your dog to us, you are trusting us with a member of your family and we take their health and well-being very seriously. When you choose Pawmetto Lifeline for your Daycare and/or Boarding needs, you can be assured that your pet will receive the highest quality care.

  • Every dog has its own 5 x 7 suite for nap time (unless you bring in a companion
        to board with him/her)
  • Only staff interacts with the privately owned pets
  • All pets boarded in the DayCare/Boarding Suite are fully vaccinated and up to date 
        on all medical
  • The Daycare/Boarding Suite has its own separate HVAC system from the rest of the
        building
  • No Pawmetto Lifeline dog is boarded in the Daycare/Boarding Suite unless they are 
        a long-timer. (Long-timers have been at Pawmetto Lifeline for at least two
        months, are fully vaccinated and considered a healthy adoptable dog by our 
        veterinarian.  These dogs do NOT interact with other Pawmetto Lifeline animals.)
