I find that it is difficult to get daycare scheduled for my puppy due to limited spots and often times, I feel the nap time hours to be really inconvenient. I could understand no drop offs during that time, but there have been several times when I would like to pick my dog up during those two hours and I've been told that it's not possible. I've even requested that they hold my dog elsewhere so that she won't disturb the other dogs and the staff is never willing to make any adjustments or accommodations. I find it to be a very expensive luxury to be able to bring my dog to daycare and I would like to drop my dog off and pick her up when it's convenient for me within your scheduled business hours.
Dogtopia of N. Raleigh is fantastic, the staff really cares about the pets they care for and they are always involved in letting us know how our Husky did when she is there.
I wouldn't take my dog anywhere else unless I had no other choice - the staff bends over backward to accommodate your needs if at all possible! FIVE STARS and 2 Thumbs Up!
Staff is very personable and welcoming. The take great care of my shy dog - they assure him each time he enters the day care play area until he's comfortable and he and the other dogs have adjusted to each other. At other places, they've just put dogs together without helping with introductions which has caused some aggression from alpha dogs toward my shy dog. Dogtopia guides the initial adjustment which has made all the difference for us.
