A Pawsitive Meet & Greet is a FREE of charge, 30 minute scheduled meeting between 630pm & 730pm at our resort with you and your pup(s). This meeting includes a tour of the facility and an interview so we can learn as much as possible about your pup(s) and it's an opportunity for you to ask questions to learn all about us and what we have to offerThis meeting allows for your pup(s) to get familiar with the resort while having their security blanket with them, you their pet parent.
No worries, we are happy to schedule an over the phone with you and a tour separately without your pup(s). We can only offer 630pm-730pm for pups to come into the resort because our vacationing dogs will be resting after dinner in their suites during this time.
CATS - FVRCP, Rabies, Feline Leukemia (Outdoor Cats)
DOGS - DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis,Parvo, Parainfluenza), Rabies & Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
Puppies- We accept puppies as young as possible to capture their prime learning age 8 -16 weeks old, however all puppies must have be up to date within their vaccine schedule PLUS have their bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine. PLEASE NOTE: Pet Parents must request this vaccine for their puppy as it is not included with the mandatory puppy vaccines.
If your puppy is younger than 6 months old, they can start daycare as soon as possible. If your puppy is 6 months or older, than they need to be spayed/neutered.
Puppies are discharged from daycare at 7 months old if intact, and possibly sooner if negative behaviours start that are hormone driven. We encourage clients to always have a back up plan for care for their puppy so they are prepared for when their pup is discharged.
We understand some pet parents want to wait for their pup to be spayed or neutered until their pup is at least a year or maybe even 2 years old. We support our clients decision, however due to safety issues all pups must be spayed/neutered that are older than 7 months if they start with us prior to 6 months old.
All puppies that have been discharged from daycare due to being intact will need to be reassessed before returning to daycare, Hormones have a huge impact on dogs behaviours, so dogs behaviours can change drastically after surgery. We want to make sure that each pup that returns to daycare is still the fun loving pup they were prior to surgery.
Be prepared for a phone interview and to schedule a 4 hour reassessment before your pup is able to return to daycare as usual. The good news is that clients will now fall under doggie daycare instead of puppy daycare.
Pet Pawsitive's 4 hr social assessment is a minimum of 4 hrs, we assess your pup on their social skills which includes how they greet other dogs, toy sharing, energy level, play methods, social skills with humans & temperament. Our goal is to best match your pup with other pups based on these characteristics, we also take into consideration their size and strength.
PLEASE NOTE: we will not pass dogs that show any signs of aggressive behaviour towards other dogs or our staff. Regarding any other inappropriate behaviour, depending on the severity, we will try to work with you and a trainer to help curb these bad habits.
PLEASE NOTE: Dogs that receive a "conditional pass" will only be able to book day by day.
PASS: Dogs that pass their social assessment will be given a 4 week plan of either once a week or twice a week, depending on the outcome to start, just to get the dogs familiar and comfortable with our facility, staff and daycare dogs. If clients wish to have their dogs vacation with us we do require a trial night before booking an extended stay or a 10 hour daycare day prior to a weekend vacation to allow the dog to get familiar with our suites, routine and staff to ensure they are as comfortable as possible during their vacation.
Social Assessments are typically scheduled MON-FRI between 7am & 5pm, if this does not work with your schedule we may be able to accommodate on a weekend but we need to have 2 Pet Care Specialists on duty to conduct the assessment and we need to have the right amount of dogs to be able to schedule the assessment.
When you arrive, one of our Pet Care Specialists will greet you and your dog outside and observe their initial behaviour, then they take the leash from you and ask you to leave immediately, this is to allow your dog to bond with our staff and develop a trusting relationship as it's normal for new arrivals to feel a bit scared, unsure, etc and this is why we give them the back yard to themselves to have time to roam around, smell the roses if you will, do their business and just relax while they get use to our facility. This also helps with separation anxiety from the pet parent.
Once your pup becomes comfortable and curious we start to introduce our most docile dogs that best match their size & weight one at a time and then we will introduce the more energetic and playful dogs etc.
Once the 4 hrs is up and you come pick up your pup, we ask that you greet your pup in a calm manner and wait to give cuddles once you get home, this helps keep all our dogs in our care calm but also helps prevent separation anxiety as well. Add an answer to this item.
Our 4 week program is necessary because 4 hours just is not enough time for a dog to feel 100% comfortable in a new environment without their pet parents. Dogs must be 100% comfortable before we can see their true personalities. The 4 week program allows for your pup to build their independence & confidence while learning proper social skills with their new friends and growing a strong bond with our Pawsitive Team. It also teaches your dog that you are coming back for them. They get use to being dropped off and picked up, which builds trust that you are not abandaning your dog, this helps ease them when they vacation with us. Our goal is to create a plan and environment that focuses on a safe fun place for all dogs we accept into facility.
Our minimum daycare day is 5 hours. We've set this time line to allow Dogs and/or Puppies time to get their zoomies out, and then relax and play again before going home. Our goal is to teach all dogs how to relax and be calm in as a social setting. Being able to relax (turn the switch off) is key to having well balanced social dog.
Behaviours can change in a very short period of time with dogs, so we encourage our clients to have their dogs attend daycare monthly to maintain their social skills. If we haven't seen your dog within 3 months or longer they will be required to be reassessed and start the process all over again, starting with an over the phone interview.
Regardless, if you want your pup to attend daycare or just vacation with Pet Pawsitive, all dogs must complete the social assessment process plus the mandatory 4 week program plus a trial night prior to vacationing with Pet Pawsitive.
Although daycare is a fun safe place for dogs to play with their friends, vacationing can be very stressful on a dog due to being away from their loved ones and not in the comfort of their own home. Dogs get homesick too.
If your pup does not attend daycare regularly, to prepare them for vacationing we require clients to have their pups attend daycare a few times per week, 2 weeks prior to vacationing services starting. This will allow them to get use to our routine, bond with our staff, and get familiar with their suites again. Preparing your dog for their vacation is key to ensuring they have a fun, stress-free vacation.
Drop Off Times: 7am-1:30pm
Pick Up Times: 7:30am - 9:30 pm
Please Note: If any pets are NOT picked up by 9:30pm then they will be spending the night, as our staff needs the last 30 mins of the day to take all dogs out for last chance pee and tuck everyone into bed.
Pet Pawsitive is staffed from 7am-10pm, 7 days a weeks 365 days a year, there are staff that live on the on the property all year around
Pet Pawsitive schedules appointments for drop offs and pick ups every 15 minutes. We encourage clients to arrive on time, late fees will apply if clients arrive later than 15 mins from their scheduled arrival time.
1. Due to having separate play groups, we need to ensure each dog can safely have the back yard to do their doggy business for 15 mins prior to being placed into their play group.
2. Not all dogs get along so we need to ensure each dog can safely enter our facility without being in contact with dogs they don't along with.
3. Cats get easily stressed out so we need to ensure we have a safe pathway to their suite.
3. We invoice based on time.
NOTE: Other than prepaid packages, PLEASE DO NOT E-TRANSFER THE PAYMENT PRIOR TO RECEIVING YOUR INVOICE - this causes mass chaos for us on our end and for our accountant and his team, which costs us extra for their time. Please include the invoice # in the Memo of the etransfer so we can apply the correct payment to the correct invoice.
Social Assessment/Reassessments: Clients are required to pay at the time of booking the social assessment to secure their 4 hour time slot. Clients will receive an invoice and once the payment is received then the services will be confirmed.
Single Day Services ( Doggie/Puppy Daycare) - On the day of the service, we will email our clients the invoices for the day after the last dog arrives that day, generally before 2pm. We ask that all clients etransfer their payment prior to 6pm when possible and for sure before 11pm each evening to prevent a Late Fee Charge. All e-transfer are to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, the instructions are included in the email with the invoice.
Prepaid Doggie/Puppy Daycare: All Prepaid Packages must be paid for prior to scheduling the services, as PetSitClick generates the invoice and receipt at the same time it's scheduled. This is the only time we require payment prior to receiving your invoice. Please add Prepaid Package for "dogs name" in the Memo of the etransfer. Clients will be emailed their receipt of payment once the services have been scheduled.
Vacationing Services: All vacationing services require a 50% deposit to secure the booking. The invoice will be emailed at the time the services are scheduled, requesting the deposit to be paid within 24 hrs of receiving the invoice to secure the booking, the balance is due prior to drop off. Clients are welcome to pay the full balance instead of just the deposit but are not required to. Please include the invoice # in the Memo Field of the etransfer.
Pet Pawsitive charges a late fee because we plan and organize the pets within the resort prior to your arrival. By being late we have to scramble around and shuffle the dogs around to accommodate your arrival, this is very disruptive for our staff and the dogs.

Vacationing Services: Yes, we do require a 50% deposit to be paid within 24 hrs of receiving your invoice to secure your booking, the balance of the invoice is due prior to drop off.

No Credits/refunds will be granted for Prepaid Daycare Packages. No Exceptions. Prepaid Daycare packages cannot be used toward vacationing services or any other service other than daycare. All pre-paid daycare packages expire within 60 days.
