Doggy DooLil Daycare is a membership based daycare, which means you attend a minimum of once a week.  Our requirements mandate that for the health and safety of our guests, all dogs must have up-to-date records for all vaccinations listed – no exceptions. We do not accept home vaccinations or titer tests in lieu of vaccinations for any pets. Vaccinations must be administered at least 48 hours prior to arrival under the guidance of a licensed veterinarian. We prefer that vaccinations be administered 10 days prior to check-in for boarding.

Not training your dog could be reason for cancellation of membership, and no refund will be given. Damage to daycare property will be at the owner's expense. This includes boarding dogs and board & train dogs. 


If your dog is sick and needs to miss a day or more of daycare, we need to be notified, in order to roll your missed days. We ask that you use up your rolled days within the same month, if possible, but can be flexible. If your dog is suffering from diarrhea, please keep him or her home. By maintaining a good diet, and only dog food, you will lessen the chance of tummy upset. Raw pumpkin can help get the tummy back to feeling good, and ending the mess. 


Your dog needs to be clean and free of knots and should smell clean. My home is open to all members, so lets make sure its a comfy and inviting place. To protect the dogs, as well as the furniture and floors in my home, please keep up with the grooming of your dogs nails. If I find the dog is overdue, I can refuse daycare for that dog until the nails are done, and no refund will be offered. 


Members monthly invoice needs to be paid by the end of each month. Failure to pay your invoice on time each month might result in days used that month, be charged at 'trial' rate until payment is received or membership is cancelled.



DHPP-**L ~ Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus.  **Leptospirosis.

Bordetella ~ Required every 12 months. Intra-nasal is only given once a year, but the injection needs a boost the following month.  Please note, many veterinarians administer this vaccine only by request.

Rabies*** ~ One- or three-year vaccine required depending on the age of the dog.  Rabies per local ordinance


De worming is usually given by vet, but please check to ensure your puppy has been dewormed. New products on the market doing more to cover this issue is now available. Roundworm is now treated with 'Interceptor', as the vets are finding that the regular 'Strongid' is not killing off the Roundworm. Make sure your deworming meds are up to date with the hardy roundworm making a lot of dogs sick here on the lower mainland this year (2018).  

A Flea treatment program is required at our daycare as an outbreak of fleas would cause us to have to close down our space. I'm proud to say that in 14 years we have never had one. Let's keep it that way. 

Please pay special attention to the health of your dog before boarding or using daycare and make sure he/she is healthy and free from the following: Kennel cough, Fleas, Lice or any external parasites/Internal parasites. Parvo, Rabies, Distemper or any other contagious disease. Eye infection, runny nose, vomiting or diarrhea, or bloated belly in pups, which could potentially be worms.


As the health and safety of all of our pack members is of the utmost importance to us, we reserve the right to refuse any dog at our discretion if we feel that these conditions are not met.
