Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What is needed to stay at Dog Rock Resorts?

    Before playing or staying with us at Dog Rock all dogs must be current on the vaccinations listed below. In order to participate in group play, all dogs must complete a group play compatibility interview and be spayed or neutered.

    • Rabies
    • Distemper (DHPP)
    • Bordetella Vaccine
  • How old does my dog have to be before staying at Dog Rock?

    All dogs must be at least 6 months of age before participating in daycare. Dottie Zaris, our trainer, does have a Puppy Kindergarten class at Dog Rock that you can inquire about to prepare your dog for our daycare program.

  • What is a full daycare vs half day?

    If your dog stays with us for less than 6 hours, we will charge you for a half day. If your dog is with us for more than 6 hours, you will be charged for a full day.

  • What time does daycare end? Is there a late charge?

    Daycare Program: 7am-7pm every day of the year

    • If picking up after 7 pm: Dog will be signed into Boarding program. A charge of $69.00-$135.00 will be charged depending on availability of suites.
  • What time is checkout the day of pickup?

    Checkout is 12 PM Noon the day of your pickup. If checking out after 12 PM, we will charge you a 1/2 day charge of $32.00 if picked up before 3 PM. All checkouts AFTER 3 PM will be considered another night of boarding and you will be charged a suite rate based on availability.

  • If my dog is in group daycare, does he play all day?

    Group daycare is 7AM-7PM every day with high energy and low energy periods staggered throughout the day. We believe it is critical to provide periods of low energy where we replace all toys with beds, turn off the lights, put music on and allow the dogs to relax.

  • Is someone monitoring the dogs at all times while they are in the play yards? Who will be monitoring the dogs?

    Yes. We will NOT be “checking in”, we will be present at all times and hands on! Our play yard supervisor’s primary responsibility is to maintain a healthy, stress free environment for the dogs in group play. He or she is carefully monitoring body language and behavioral cues with the idea to solve problems before they occur. We accomplish this by developing relationships with each and every dog who stays with us and learning his or her tendencies. We carefully select which dogs play together based on of size and temperament.

  • My dog is getting older or is simply not interested in playing with other dogs during the day… what will my dog’s day be like if he stays at Dog Rock?

    We have developed a great private boarding experience for dogs who are unable to participate in the off-leash daycare program while boarding with us for any reason. This program is designed to emulate a dog’s lifestyle at home and to make sure all of our dogs are exercised with adequate outdoor/play/potty time. From 6:30 AM – 10 PM our private boarding dogs enjoy several one-on-one sessions with a staff member for relief and exercise.

  • My dog eats a specific food and must take medicine, is that okay?

    If you bring your own dog food we ask you to be as detailed as possible with your instructions. It is best to supply us with already labeled ready to serve portions if your dog is on a special diet. If you do not bring dog food or your dog stays longer than anticipated, our house dog food is veterinarian approved and is $3 per meal. Our staff is trained to administer non-injectable medicine. Each pill pocket is an additional $1.

  • My dog LOVES his own bed and blankie! Can I bring them with him so he is comfortable at night? Can I bring his favorite toy?

    Of course! Please feel free to bring anything you feel will make your dog more comfortable during his or her stay with us.

  • How close is the nearest animal hospital to Dog Rock Resorts in case of an emergency?

    County Animal hospital is across the street and Valley Cottage Animal Hospital is open 24 hours and 6 miles away. As a reminder, we have staff members on the premises 24/7.

  • Is there an additional charge for holidays?

    Yes. Depending on the holiday, there is an additional charge for Daycare and overnight boarding.

  • What if I have more than one dog?

    You will receive a 15% discount on your second dog if they stay in the same suite. If they prefer private suites, they will be charged full price.

  • How far in advance do I need to book services?

    As soon as possible. Especially over the Christmas and New Years holidays, we ask that you let us know at least one month ahead of time in order to guarantee a reservation.
