Required Forms To Operate a Dog Daycare

Before going any further Read The Following:






Client Forms For Operating a Dog Daycare.


There are a number of forms that you will need if you plan on operating a successful Dog daycare facility.  On this page you are provide you with the exact forms that we use to operate our facility. The first of these is a Dog Daycare Application. This is the form that clients fill out prior to them being allowed to participate in the dog daycare program. It provides Dog Daycare owner with the information needed to introduce a new dog into the Dog Daycare atmosphere smoothly. The other purpose of this form is that it gives potential clients a feeling of exclusivity and makes the facility more professional by having a requirement that client must complete an application prior allowing their dogs to participate in Dog Daycare Services.

The next form in the package is our Medical Release form. This provided  the right to seek medical attention at the closest available facility in the event an emergency should arise. This form is good not only for daycare but grooming and other services as well.

Lastly, we have provided our standard pet care agreement. We live in a very litigious society in which everyone tries to sue everyone else for real or merely perceived injustices. When you are in the pet care industry you have to understand that a lot of your clients will not be able to understand that that a dog is a dog and as such will act like a dog. There are going to be situations in which accidents will occur.


There is nothing that you can do to eliminate the risk.


There is nothing that you can do to eliminate the possibility of a fight or a client’s dog getting injured.


However, you can minimize it by having a trained staff and ensuring that you take your temperament test procedures seriously and ensure that you only admit non aggressive dogs. This form basically releases you from liability and makes the customer responsible for the actions of their pet. In the event that an accident happens due to your gross negligence this or no form will protect you, but for routine accidents that may occur this goes far in protecting you and your business.

 This is a required form for all (XYZ Dog Daycare) participants receiving services.

First and foremost the safety and well being of your pet(s) is of the highest importance. Insuring that your pet remains safe and well cared for is our first responsibility and as such we take it very seriously. We do our best to have our pet parents screen for pre-existing health conditions but some factors may be beyond our control. In the event that a medical emergency arises while a pet is at our facility or participating in a service that we provide it is imperative that we are immediately able to get them medical treatment at the closest available facility. We will call ahead to the veterinary offices in closest proximity geographically to us to insure they can handle the emergency present. Your pet will be rushed to the closest available facility for treatment and you will be notified. We notify the owner after we have secured a medical treatment center for the animal to avoid delays that may be caused by emotion on the part of the owner. Our goal is to get your pet medical attention as quickly as humanly possible, and any distractions may interfere with that process.

For that reason, it is a requirement to have our pet parents sign this form.

        I understand that in the event of a medical emergency that (XYZ Dog Daycare), at its sole discretion, deems to need the immediate attention of a licensed veterinarian, I authorize (XYZ Dog Daycare) to seek medical attention at the closest available veterinary facility. I further agree that I am financially responsible for any medical treatment my pet(s) receives as a result of a medical emergency while attending services provided by (XYZ Dog Daycare)
