Zoomies

Requirements

AGE

Dogs must be at least 4 months old and be current on their vaccinations. Puppies are more susceptible to contracting illnesses and parasites, so it is important for the safety and health of your dog that they meet our age and vaccination requirements. Not quite ready for play? We recommend at-home walks until your dog meets our requirements.

SOCIABILITY & TEMPERAMENT

Dogs should be friendly towards both humans and other dogs. All dogs are required to undergo an assessment at Zoomies to determine sociability and temperament. Dogs may be dismissed after the assessment if we notice changes in behavior that are unsafe for other dogs or staff. We do not discriminate by breed. We believe all dogs should have a chance at happiness.

VACCINATIONS

Dogs must show proof of immunization for Rabies, DHPP (distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus and parainfluenza), and Bordetella (kennel cough virus).

SPAY OR NEUTER

Dogs must be spayed or neutered by one year old. In an open play environment, unaltered male and female dogs elicit competition from other males that either wish to determine rank or to gain the attention of the intact female. If your veterinarian has recommended to spay or neuter at a later time for health benefits, we recommend at-home walks until your dog meets our requirements. We also do not accept dogs that have received a vasectomy in lieu of a neuter as the sex hormones are still active.
