luckydog policies

luckydog is committed to providing the best dog daycare and boarding experience in the Eugene and Springfield area. This means we require that all of our clients comply with the following policies to ensure the health and safety of your pet and of our other guests.

Health and Initial Requirements:
• Initial evaluation
• Negative fecal test
• Free of any contagious illness
• Flea control (such as Trifexis)
• Spayed/neutered (over the age of 6 months)
• Proof of vaccination (DHLPP, Rabies, Bordetella, Canine Influenza)

Evaluation
All of our dogs and their owners are required to participate in an initial evaluation. During our evaluation your dog will be tested for attitude and basic handling (paws, ears, mouth and handling of body). All dogs must pass our evaluation to assure that they are people- and dog- friendly. Please contact us in advance to schedule your 30-35 minute evaluation and facility tour.

Age 
All dogs must be at least 4 months of age or older. Puppies and recently adopted dogs must be in the home for 4 weeks prior to coming to daycare or boarding.

Sex 
All dogs over the age of 6 months must be neutered or spayed.

Health
Dog must be current in the following vaccinations: distemper/parvo, rabies (by six months of age), bordatella, and canine influenza. All dogs must be in good health. Owners will need to certify that their dog(s) are in good health and have not been ill in the last 30 days. On admission all dogs must be free from any condition that could potentially jeopardize the health and safety of other dogs. Dogs that have been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days will require veterinarian certification of health in order to be admitted or readmitted. Once admitted, please alert staff to any change in your dog’s health that requires medication, even if luckydog is not to be required to administer it. If your dog is not feeling well, i.e. vomiting or diarrhea, please do not bring him/her to day or night care.

Minimum Commitment
Our healthy and safe dog daycare environment is a result of dogs getting to know each other during repeated visits. This occurs by reducing the stress of meeting new and unfamiliar dogs every day, no different from the increased comfort level you feel once you become more familiar with new friends. To ensure this, we ask that you make an initial 4 week commitment to the same day(s) each week.

Behavior
Owners will need to certify that their dog(s) have not harmed or shown aggression or threatening behavior towards any person or other dog(s). Dogs that exhibit any aggressive behavior or show signs of excessive stress will be removed from the open play environment and staff will discuss options or alternatives to daycare.

Collars and Harnesses
All dogs must have a quick release collar with a name tag.

Boarding charges

Boarding fees are per night for a 24 hour period (i.e. am drop off-am pick up or pm drop off-pm pick up). If the 24 hour period is exceeded there will be an additional, one time, daycare fee of $20 per stay.

Cancellation
Cancellations for doggie daycare and dog boarding with less than 24-hour notice will be charged the full day/night care fee for their dog’s reserved stay. Reservations made less than 3 days from scheduled check-in date are final as of 6:00 p.m. on the day they were made. A credit card is required for all reservations.

Holiday Reservations
When making your dog boarding reservations on, and/or surrounding, any major US holiday (including spring break) please be advised that a $75 non-refundable deposit is required to book your reservation. There is also a 10% increase on boarding fees to offset increased staffing. If holiday reservations are cancelled less than 14 days of scheduled arrival date the deposit will be charged. If reservations are cancelled within 7 days of said holiday 50% of the entire reservation will be charged.

Payment Options
We accept cash, personal checks, Visa, and MasterCard. During the initial enrollment process, each dog owner must provide a valid credit card to be on file. We do not bill customers or allow credit. During busy holidays a deposit for boarding must be placed for each dog to guarantee the reservation. This deposit must be made at the time of reservation and payment must be made when the dog is picked up. A deposit is not required for daycare services, but we will require payment at the time of pick-up.
