Day Care

K9 Principles Day Care is unique in many ways. To begin with, we are dog trainers and we understand how to safely socialize dogs. Our mission is to provide a comfortable, safe, fun, and social environment for your dog. We require a “meet & greet” to ensure that new dogs coming to the day care are well socialized.

At K9 Principles Day Care your dog will enjoy supervised free play in a temperature controlled indoor play area with an outdoor space for fresh air, sunshine and potty breaks. Your dog will follow a schedule that includes intensive play, exercise, rest periods, feeding (if needed) and lots and lots of love. Of course, since we’re dog trainers, there will be some training that happens as well. We can’t help ourselves-we like dogs that are well behaved! We correct excessive jumping, barking and also making sure the dogs” play nicely in the playground” with each other. For those of you in need of more intensive training, please explore the various training options listed on this website- such as the Day Training program. It’s a wonderful choice for busy working people who still want well-socialized and well trained dogs.


K9 Principles Dog Care must have current vaccine information on file. For your understanding, we think it’s best to educate everyone the necessity for every dog to be current on their vaccines.

To avoid possible outbreaks, all clients must supply us with a current list of vaccines for their pet(s) before service begins. As you may know, there is no fool proof way to keep every dog 100% safe – but their vaccines aid to protect your pet(s) by triggering a defense with cohabitating dog spaces from spreadable contagion. We maintain a database with information on each dog, dates of vaccines and it prompts us to let you know when your dog is due for their vaccines.

*Vaccinations required: Rabies, Bordetella and DHLPP. Each dog’s vaccines expire on different dates; we implement proof of vaccination requests for each client to update their pet(s) information. You may drop-off vaccination copies when you enroll your dog. Remember, dogs in good health have a more rewarding daycare experience.

All dog(s) must be neutered by 8 months of age.
