Your One Woof Daycare questions answered
If you’ve ever visited our site in the past, you might have noticed a helpful FAQ section, where common questions are answered. We’ve taken a few of the biggest queries and compiled them into today’s story, alongside some bits and pieces you won’t find in our FAQs.
In short, everything you need to know about our daycare facility is here.
Who runs One Woof Daycare?
The facility is run by founder Kristi Sonnee, an experienced groomer, who bought the facility in 2014.
What services do you offer?
We offer daycare, boarding and grooming services. If you would like to make a daycare reservation, book online by 8pm the previous evening. For boarding, we require 48 hours’ notice. For grooming, it’s best to give us 1-2 weeks’ notice.
Do you cater to dogs and cats, or just dogs?
At present, it’s just dogs, as we don’t house/board cats, nor do we have a cat groomer on our team.
What can I expect when I bring my dog to Under One Woof?
For safety reasons, all dogs (whether in for daycare or boarding) start day in a pen adjacent to the play groups.
They’ll stay here until they’re calm until to join the larger group.
Bad behaviour is stamped out quickly, and we always make sure we give the dogs a lot of exercise so that they’re less likely to misbehave.
That said, while we would like to be playing with the dogs non-stop, this is not always healthy – so we make sure to give them breaks, lest they become upset and crabby.
Do you take in fearful dogs?
We do – we’re always happy to accommodate dogs into the pack. That said, if your dog is aggressive, and unwilling to be touched, we kindly ask you make other accommodations.
Does my dog need to be evaluated?
If your dog is boarding with us, we conduct a two-hour evaluation. For daycare, it’s not essential, though it is recommended for dogs who are new to open play areas.
If my dog is boarding with you, what do I need to bring?
Please provide enough meals for the dog’s stay. In fact, it’s always a good idea to bring a little extra food – just in case.
Nice-to-haves include their bed and blanket and a couple of toys. These always help the dog feel more at home.
What if my dog is staying in daycare, and I have to stay late at work?
Since we don’t offer after-hours services currently, your dog will be boarded for the night. Our opening hours are 6am-8pm Monday-Friday and 8am-6pm Saturday and Sunday.
Do dogs get separation anxiety?
You don’t need to worry. Your dog will meet lots of new faces and have such a good time, that he’ll be exhausted by the time you pick him up to go home.
How long does a grooming take?
You can expect it to take between 2 ½ and 3 hours.
