Your Fur~Baby can play in a group, with a favorite toy, play ball, hang out with our humans or just lounge around.

Features

We are a CAGE FREE open indoor dog park. We will place your Fur~Baby in our park based on their size & temperament. Fur~Baby Park has 1 large park area that can be divided into 4 areas for different play groups. Dogs are placed in the park that they will enjoy & make the most fur~iends. Our trained Park Rangers will supervise and interact with your Fur~Baby during their visit to the Park.

~Nap Time~
From 12-2pm we have quiet in the park and turn off the lights & play soothing music composed specifically for dogs to enjoy a mid-afternoon nap, perhaps on a soft park bench in the sun, or to play quietly with toys or fur~iends. In order to ensure this peaceful time, we can not have any drop offs during this time.

~Music in the Park~
Dogs and cats hear sounds two and three time more than humans. This music has been created by a specific process modifying the music’s frequency range according to dog hearing sensitivities. Within minutes of listening to the music your fur~baby will start to relax and feel calm. Relaxation Music is played for 2 hours and is gentle melodic orchestrations designed just for pets.

~Snack Time~
Your Fur~Baby will enjoy only the best, healthiest treats while enjoy their day at the park. We will always let you know what we are serving & have many options including grain, wheat, corn, soy free, holistic & organic treats. All of our treats are human grade and made with top ingredients made here in the USA. If your Fur~Baby has a special treat or diet, please discuss this with us, & feel free to bring their own special treats.

~Park Filtered Water~
While water plays many key roles in dog’s bodies, waters’ chief functions are to maintain a stable environment inside and around their cells, allowing them to acquire sufficient nutrition and aiding elimination of waste in cells. To provide an optimal environment for life, the water we allow our pets to consume through food and drink must be clean and should supply the body with needed electrolytes. Tap water can be some of the most toxic water available to your dog. Research has shown that tap water contains chlorine, often fluoride, & toxic substance that overtime, can have very evil effects on yours & your dogs’ body. One other consideration in quality is temperature of the water. Much like us, your dog will prefer water that fits the seasons. If it’s hot, we serve water that is cooler. If it is winter, we serve room temperature water. So we have superior, clean, quality, filtered water for your Fur~Baby.

~AIR~
Because we ONLY provide the very best for you Fur~Baby we provide purified air in the Park. These air purifiers quickly and effectively reduces carbon-based contaminants, providing fresh, clean smelling air in only minutes. What are carbon-based contaminants? Some of the more familiar carbon-based contaminants include mold, bacteria, viruses, odors & volatile organic compounds. You won’t find these in our park.

~Park Clean Up~
We care about the safety of our fur~iends and therefore we clean our park several times everyday with Pet Safe products.We use powerful, concentrated, multi-purpose disinfectants & deodorizers that provides area control of staph, salmonella, E. coli, bordatella bronchiseptica, adenovirus, canine distemper, feline picornavirus, HIV-1, infectious bovine rhinotracheitis, rabies, herpes, pseudorabies, respiratory syncytia, streptococcus—even canine parvovirus.

~Report Cards~
At the end of each full day at the park, we’ll provide you with a detailed report of your Fur~Baby’s activities including: Potty times, snacks, fur~iends made, activities enjoyed, & who their Park Rangers were for that day. We will always notify you if any potty or behavior concerns arise.

~Park Security~
Rest assure that while your Fur~Baby is here enjoying their day of play, they are safe & secure. ONLY our Park Rangers will have access to the Daycare room and to interact with them. We do NOT allow anyone else into the daycare area or to come in contact with our fur~iends, even during walks outside. We have 1 outside exit which remains locked at all times, everyone will enter/exit through our Boutique area. All dogs will be escorted through 1 locked gate & 1 door to enter/exit the daycare. We have a very strict pick-up policy that requires a photo ID for non-parent pick-ups, we must be notified by YOU prior to releasing your Fur~Baby to anyone else. Here in the park we also have “eye in the sky” cameras that help us monitor all areas of the park at all times. So, when you leave your Fur~Baby here, relax and enjoy your day…they already are !

First Visit

Prior to conducting the temperament evaluation, we sit down with you & review the information presented on the application to include the dogs history, previous owners, known issues, previous socialization & interactions with other dogs. We want to know as much as possible so we can make their transition into the park as smooth & enjoyable as possible. This process generally takes 25 minutes, and once complete you may go about your daily activities while we conduct the evaluation with your dog at our facility. You are welcome to come before your scheduled temperament test and pick up required paperwork or you may download the required paperwork on our site at https://furbabyboutique.com/forms/. 

Temperament Testing

We can not accept aggressive dogs, or dogs with an inability to interact socially with other canines. In order to insure the happiness and well being of our guests, all dogs are required undergo a temperament test prior to being allowed to participate in daycare or boarding activities. This gives us the opportunity to ascertain the temperament and social skills of the dog & to ensure that your Fur Baby will enjoy participating in the services offered.

The Temperament Evaluation cost $25 and may take between 2 and 4 hours to complete and we provide the rest of that days daycare for FREE once they are accepted into the park.

Evaluations

Prior to conducting the temperament evaluation, we sit down with you and review the information presented on the application to include the dogs history, previous owners, known issues, previous socialization and interactions with other dogs. We want to know as much as possible so we can make their transition into the park as smooth and enjoyable as possible. This process generally takes 20 minutes, and once complete you may go about your daily activities while we conduct the evaluation with your dog at our facility.

There is no need for you to wait or be present while we conduct the temperament evaluation. Our experience has shown that we are able to gain a much more realistic & accurate assessment of the dogs social skills when the parents are not present as they are not focused on impressing mom & dad, but on interacting with other dogs.

The temperament evaluation begins with each staff member becoming personally acquainted with your dog, in a controlled environment away from the main pack, after which we will slowly introduce one of our control dogs known for their friendly nature and well-rounded socialization skills. We will carefully monitor your dog for body language, posturing & reactions during these critical first social interactions. At which point we will introduce your Fur~Baby to the park and observe. Once a dog has successfully completed the evaluation, we contact the parent and inform them of the good news. They are then issued a Fur~Baby Park card that allows them full access to all the services that we provide.

In the event that we feel a dog may need more training to interact safely with the pack, we contact the parent and allow them to stay in one of our pet suites until mom or dad can pick them up. There is a non-refundable $25.00 fee for the initial interview, and temperament evaluation.

The interview process is a very straight forward process designed to address the individual needs of your dog and determine their current level of socialization while ensuring that everyone in our care has a happy, safe & fun time.

All Dogs are inspected upon entry into the facility and if parasites are found they must either be picked up immediately or given a flea/tick treatment at your expense.
