Benefits of Daycare...
Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I choose Pumkin Paws for my dogs daycare needs?
Dogs are naturally social and require both animal and human interaction. Daycare allows your pup to socialize in a controlled and relaxed environment. We started off with individual walks and have evolved into a full-service pet care company that caters to dogs of all temperaments and activity levels. Whether you need a 20 minute walk or a full day of daycare, we are here to help you maintain a healthy & happy pup!
I would like for Pumkin Paws to provide transportation, what are the logisitics?
We offer pick up and drop off for dogs that attend both half and full day daycare. Regardless of whether you are attending half or full day, pick up begins between 9-9:30am. Half a day dogs are dropped off around 1:30pm and full day dogs are dropped off between 4-5pm. The rate is $6/each way and can be requested as needed.
What are the hours of operation?
You can drop off your dog as early as 7:30am and pick up anytime before 6pm. Half a day rates apply for dogs that attend daycare for up to five hours. Full day rates apply after 5 hours.
What vaccinations are required?
Your dog needs to be up to date on the following vaccinations: Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, and Bordetella. If this is the dog's first bordetella vaccination, it must be given 1 week prior to attending daycare. After that, bordetella must be renewed every 6 months. Bordetella vaccinations must be administered at least 24 hours prior to the first day of daycare. Dogs will NOT be allowed to attend daycare with out proof (certificates) of updated vaccinations.
What if there is a medical emergency while my dog is there?
Depending on the severity of the emergency, our first contact will either be with you or your dog's veterinarian. If there is a minor emergency or injury, we will contact you, the pet parent immediately. If you are unreachable, we call the emergency contact listed on your profile. We also have a pet first aid kit on hand to tend to any minor wounds. For more severe cases we will take your pup to their primary veterinarian if they are local. We will take them to one of Riverdale's vets, if your vet is not in the area. We recommend that you contact your vet to authorize/allow Pumkin Paws to bring in your dog in case of emergencies.
Do you offer tours of the facility?
In order to maintain a relaxed and safe environment for the pets all facility tours need to be scheduled. We feel that it is important for the pet parent and their dog to feel comfortable in our daycare environement, so we strongly suggest that you schedule a tour by email or phone.
Do you offer live webcams?
We do not offer live streaming webcams. However, we do have CC 24 hour surveillance for your pup's safety.
Does my dog get outdoor time?
Depending on how long your dog will be at daycare, we offer 1-2 complimentary outdoor bathroom breaks. These walks are strictly to relieve themselves. We offer additional 20 minute ($7) or 45 minute ($12) walks. The 45 minute walk will be a trek to Van Cortlandt Park in a small group setting! We also have a fenced in outdoor space that will be used in the Summer!
My dog usually eats lunch, can he eat while attending daycare?
In order to eliminate aggressive or possessive behaviors that may arise around food, we do not feed the dogs while in our facility. If your dog needs to eat during the day, we can feed him prior to pick up or after drop off. If it is imperative that your dog eats a mid-day lunch, please email or call and we will work out a plan to best meet your pup's needs.
