Requirements for New Dogs

Thank you for your interest in Villa La Paws. 

Before any dog can come here for boarding or daycare they must first pass a temperament evaluation.  We are a cage free facility and so the dogs play together all day and sleep together at night.   We conduct the evaluations by appointment, every day but Sunday, between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. 

All dogs need to be current for Rabies, Distemper and Bordetella vaccines, and need to be on a flea/tick control program of the parent’s choosing.  If they are over 6 months of age they need to be spayed/neutered.

Please call us with any questions or if you would like to schedule an evaluation.  The parents need to stay for the initial part of the evaluation, which takes about 20 minutes.  If he does well, we want him to stay at least an additional 3 hours to give us a longer time to evaluate him.  There is no charge for the evaluation day.

We also require at least an additional half day of daycare before their initial boarding.  We find that helps reduce the pups anxiety when they are dropped off for boarding the first time.
