Enrollment Requirements

The safety and health of your dog is important to us, so we require the following for all dogs to enroll in dog daycare: 
  • Up-to-date vaccinations: Bordetella, Rabies, and DHPP.
  • A fecal float test, with negative results.
  • Completed enrollment forms.
  • All dogs over six months must be spayed or neutered.
  • Pass a temperament test.
Your vet can email the vaccination info and fecal results to us at
For more information about fecal float tests, click here.
Age requirements - Puppies must be 12 weeks old  and have started their second round of vaccinations. We do not accept dogs over the age of 12 years. 
Please note that if your dog has not attended daycare for over six months, she/he will be removed from our daycare roster. Another temperament test will need to be scheduled prior to your dog being re-enrolled in daycare, along with verification that your dogs vaccinations are up-to-date. If it has been more than a year, your dog will not be able to return without an updated fecal test, verification that all vaccinations are up-to-date, and another temperament test.  

Required Enrollment Forms

If you do not have a printer, we can provide copies for you.

Schedule a Temperament Test

Once you have all the documents we require, call Grateful Dogs Daycamp at 360-438-PLAY to schedule a temperament test.  A temperament test is simply an interview with your dog. There is no cost for the temperament test.
We are not breed discriminatory. If your dog is friendly, non-agressive, and gets along well with other dogs, they will be welcome into dog daycare!
