  • Pricing and Policy Changes

    September 1, 2016:

    Effective September 1st 2016, WOOFS! is transitioning from an open admission daycare to a much smaller, more exclusive service. Our screening standards will increase from high to downright picky in order to ensure that all your dog's playmates are the nicest of the nice - just like your dog.

    Daycare policies will change as follows:

    - Daycare rates will increase from a base rate of $36 to $38. The half day rate will increase from $25 to $27.

    - Boarding rates will increase to $58 for crate boarding and $68 for suite boarding.

    - Weekend daycare will no longer be available, although boarding dogs will still get plenty of play time.

    - Daycare activities at the Shirlington Campus will end an hour earlier, at 6 pm, although you still have until 7 pm to pick up your dog with no late fee. Your dog will wait calmly for your arrival in a crate or suite, where we are happy to feed them dinner. This will eliminate the high levels of stress and arousal that accompany evening pick-ups. 

    - Dogs must have successfully attended daycare within the last six months to be considered for boarding.
