At Carver Lake Veterinary Center, we understand that you cannot always be at home with your pets. Perhaps you have activities after work or school that require you to be gone into the evening. Maybe you have a young puppy who needs attention and “potty breaks” several times throughout the day. With Daycare, your puppy can receive attention, walks, and midday meals. Daycare is offered during our regular business hours: Monday and Friday from 8:00am until 6:00pm and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:00am until 8:00pm.
We enjoy the extra time we share with your pet; we get to know your pet better and they get to know us. While your pet is here for daycare, we can provide other services such as grooming, vaccinations, and dental cleanings as an extra convenience for you. Added benefits for puppies include speeding up crate training and housebreaking.
Daycare can be scheduled per day on a regular basis or as needed with our front desk staff. Bedding, leashes, and bowls for food and water are provided. The dogs are housed individually in standard stainless steel crates. Dogs are walked on a leash to eliminate at least every four hours or as needed depending on the dog. Manners that you may be teaching, such as not biting or not to jump on people, will be reinforced by our staff. Socialization with people and with other dogs will be supervised when appropriate. Bring your own food and treats if you would like and let us know if your puppy has any special dietary limits.
We do not provide unsupervised play and the amount of exercise most dogs receive here will not supply all the play your dog will need for the day. Dogs who are not crated at home or are stressed by other dogs may not enjoy the daycare experience. It is not for every pet. If you have further questions about our daycare service, please don’t hesitate to ask!
