A1K9 DOGGIE DAY SCHOOL PICK UP & DROP OFF POLICY:
If your dog is attending the A1K9 Doggie Day school, please be aware of the following information below:
1. Drop-off time is from 7am-9am *unless an earlier or later time has been agreed upon in writing with the owner, Taylor. *
2. Pick-up times are from 5-6pm unless earlier or later pick up times have been agreed upon in writing with the owner, Taylor. You must inform and agree to your pickup time with A1K9 LLC, so we are prepared & ready for your dog to be picked up. We do this to avoid kennel time as much as possible.
a.) ANY pickup time after 6pm will be subject to a $10 late fee per 15 minutes they are late. If you believe you are going to have issues picking up on time, we highly recommend having a back up person for pick-ups to avoid this fee if possible.
3. Unannounced pick-ups or showing up unannounced is NOT allowed at ANY time. If you are planning to pick up early or your day was shorter than planned, you MUST contact A1K9 LLC before arriving to pick up your dog for the reasons below:
a.) It is our belief to keep the human to dog ratio as small as possible during our open doggie day school hours to ensure every dog is receiving the attention they need. With this philosophy, we are not prepared to handle unannounced arrivals or pickups at this time.
b.) It is a HUGE distraction. We have a very structured schedule everyday and every minute counts to make sure we remain as productive as possible with each client’s dog(s). Showing up unannounced can dramatically affect the flow of our daily schedule which ends up leading to the dogs not having as much fun or not getting as much accomplished as we initially planned for the day.
4. We will do everything in our power to accommodate your schedule or any special request you may have, all we ask is for you to please respect our schedule as well.

To reduce digestive upset we encourage owners to bring their dog’s normal food. Please bring only enough pre-measured food to cover your dog’s entire stay. Please label the food container with your dog’s name and feeding amount. Please do not bring bowls, scoops or cups. If you prefer, or if you forget your dog’s food, A1K9 LLC will provide a high-quality, age-specific food for your dog at a small fee. A1K9 LLC feeds twice a day. A $4.00 surcharge will be added for any dog who requires more than two feedings per day.

Please make sure to tell our staff when making a reservation that your dog will need medication. As required by the USDA, medications must be brought in their original container from the vet or pharmacy and be clearly labeled with your dog’s name, veterinarian contact info, and dosage. There is no charge for administering medication except for medicated baths. Nonessential vitamins or supplements will incur a $4.00 surcharge unless these supplements are included in individual baggies along with the dog’s food. A1K9 LLC cannot guarantee that the dog will ingest them, however. A1K9 LLC reserves the right to refuse any pet that is not up to date on vaccinations or shows signs of illness or injury.
