Daycare Application

Thank you for your interest in the daycare program at Amity Woods!

In daycare at Amity Woods, your dog will constantly interact with both dogs and people. He or she will be placed in playgroups that are best suited to his or her personality and temperament. Our daycare areas are indoor, climate-controlled environments providing exercise and entertainment while building social skills. Good behavior is reinforced and encouraged. All participants, over the age of 6 months, are required to be spayed or neutered. To enroll your pet in daycare you will need to complete the following:

  1. Fill out the attached application
  2. Provide a current vaccination history from your veterinarian including a yearly Rabies, Distemper, Heartworm Test, and Fecal with a Giardia check. The Bordetella is required bi-annually.
  3. Schedule an appointment with our staff for a pre-enrollment screening. (A ten to fifteen-minute session with the staff and interaction time in daycare.)
  4. Have proof of a negative Giardia test. For the safety of all of our furry friends, we are required to administer a Fecal with Giardia combo test or a Giardia Snap test prior to attending daycare. If the Fecal is current, only a Giardia Snap test will be required. Without proof of previous testing, one will be administered at the time of their first visit.

Our daycare facility is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 am until 6:00 pm and Saturdays from 7:00 am until 12:00 pm. Overnight boarding is also available. You may call our office at 816-880-6650 for more information or contact us online.

We look forward to having your pet in our playgroup!
