Rules & Requirements

Behavior: All dogs must be 150 percent people and dog friendly in order to play with us. Crate Escapes does reserve the right to refuse any dog, keeping in mind, this is for the safety & protection of all pets & day care counsellors.

Coming by / Calling to the dogs: QUIET PLEASE… when entering Crate Escapes, please take note how relaxed the dogs all are together.  Stopping by unannounced, talking to them or calling out to them from the desk area disrupts this calm natural state that they play in.  Please wait to greet your dog when they are brought out to you. Thanks so much for understanding.

Toys from Home: Because dogs like to play with EVERYTHING the other dog has…. We ask that you not bring toys from home.  We not only clean our toys every night, we can’t be responsible for the loss or destruction of your pups fav toy…

Meals: We ask that all dogs are fed at home, however, depending upon the age of puppies, they may still need a lunch.  We ask that you bring your babies lunch in a Ziploc bag each day. With their name on it and time in which they are to be fed.  Your puppy will be separated from the play group & given their lunch. An additional fee may be charged.

Vaccination Requirements

We ask all our clientele familiarize themselves with what their dogs vaccinations are and what they are for.  Everyone should understand that, although we all do our best to make sure that all of our dogs are as healthy as possible, there is always the possibility of someone coming down with something now that they’re so social.  Just like kids in daycare.
