We love and care for your pup like they are our own. We realize that your dog is a furry family member, and every day at Jagger’s is the best day ever. Like a child’s daycare, we offer recurring daycare for your dog, providing safe socialization, education, and exercise. We firmly believe that every dog deserves daycare!
Much like a children’s daycare, Jagger’s Doggie Daycare is a place to bring your dog during the day while you are at work, running errands, or you are busy painting, or cooking, etc.
Daycare at Jagger’s enables your dog to get the exercise they need, and develop better social skills with other dogs, as well as people. The other big benefit is to assist dogs that have separation anxiety or boredom, which might lead them to "act out" or cause issues when left at home alone. In fact, that's how we lost our dog, Jagger (separation anxiety). This is precisely why we started this business to help other dog owners, and we named it Jagger's in his honor.
A Full-day of daycare is $22.00, while a Half-day of daycare is $16.00. There are “Package” discounts for frequent users of Full-day daycare. You can purchase a 5-day, 10-day, or 15-day Daycare Package, which gives you a significant discount off the Full-Day rate. If you have more than 1 dog, you would need a package for EACH dog in our system for tracking purposes. There is NO expiration date on the packages, you can carry them over from month-to-month. They make a great gift idea for dog owners on your list.
The dogs interact with other dogs their similar size and temperament. This is accomplished through a temperament test, where we carefully begin to pair up dogs and judge their response to one another. We have (5) indoor play areas, as well as (3) outdoor turf play areas. The dogs are able to run, jump, play on ramps, steps, tunnels, chase and catch balls, etc. If your dog is not spayed or neutured, they can still attend Daycare, but they will not be permitted to engage in "group" play with other dogs. They will go into a play area or outside by themselves, along with our Kennel Attendants. They are placed into a rotation to go outside regularly, under supervision. Too many Hormones and Testosterone involved when they are not spayed or neutered that could lead to a sudden altercation with another dog. Safety is our priority at Jagger's.
Yes, we believe that the outdoor play yards at Jagger’s are the SAFEST in the area. We invite you to compare. Jagger's is the only local daycare and boarding facility in Mt Vernon with “Pet turf” artificial grass that is easy and soft on the dog’s paw pads, and not rough like pea gravel, rock, wood chips, concrete, or asphalt, all of which can be harmful to paw pads. It's also widely known that dogs can eat and injest pea gravel or rocks, and there is no proven way to clean or disinfect it, which is why we don't have it at Jagger's. Our artificial "pet turf" is specially made for dog facilities, and we clean & disinfect it multiple times per day, so that it is germ-free, urine-free, poop-free, and contains no fleas, ticks, or other harmful risks that you could find in natural grass, dirt, mud, pea gravel, rocks, or wood chips. Safety and health is our #1 priority at Jagger's.
Yes, we have (5) large sunshades over the turf playgrounds at Jagger’s to keep your dog shaded from the heat when needed. We also have swimming pools in our turf playground areas for the dogs to jump and splash in as a quick cool down in warmer weather.
We have (5) indoor play rooms: Tiny Town, Smallville, Big City, Hound Town and Geriatric Room. Each room can accomodate a large group of dogs, and we carefully group them based upon size and temperament, while providing ongoing supervision.
Absolutely not, there is realy no reason to have it on at Jaggger's. Those expensive plastic flea collars are not recommended in our environment. They will likely get tugged and pulled off by playful dogs and we do not want to be responsible for them, so please leave your Soresto collars at home. If your dog shows up wearing a Seresto collar, you will likely be asked to remove it and take it with you, or your dog cannot stay with us.
Our facility maintains a very high level of cleanliness at all times, as the Pet Turf is sanitized daily with Wyshi-Wash which eliminates over 99% of bacteria and germs. This product has been the industry standard in disinfecting Pet Turf for over 20 years.
Written Proof of updated shots & vaccinations required from your Veterinarian. This includes: Rabies, DHLPP (Distemper, Parvo), and Bordetella (Kennel Cough). We also highly recommend the Canine Flu vaccine, but it is not required. Each dog must also pass our in-house “temperament test” to be admitted to daycare.
