Bringing Home a Puppy: A Quick Guide to Preparation and Setting Expectations
Learn what to expect and how to prepare for the new puppy that you're bringing home.
If you're going away for an extended amount of time, put your trust in Daragan's Dog Care for quality dog boarding services! We offer high-quality services at affordable prices, and discounts are available for frequent fliers and boarding multiple dogs.
Our canine boarding guests will spend the day socializing and playing with our daycare group at our facility, and this is included in the price. This means they get all the benefits of our daycare services while they’re with us. Dogs are social animals by nature, which means getting to spend the day with friends makes their stay even more enjoyable!
All new dogs must be assessed before their first day of daycare or boarding. The assessment is free, which includes a Meet & Greet with our owner & trainer to better learn more about your dog and their temperament. This will help us fully understand your dog and how we can best care for them during their stay.

All dogs are required to have the following vaccinations. Documentation can be uploaded and approved on your PawPartner profile and you will not be able to confirm reservations without them. We also recommend that you wait about 2 weeks after vaccination to schedule your first reservation so that the vaccines can take full effect.
Distemper (Da2PP (DHPP, DHLPP))
We handle all of our reservations and payments through the PawPartner app, which can be downloaded on any mobile device. You can set up a profile at any time, but reservations won’t be accepted until after the Meet & Greet and Vaccination records are approved. We have a guide available if you need help with the process.
During your dog's stay, they will be staying in their own private suite, giving your dog their own area to rest and relax whenever they need. Our experienced staff will ensure that they are happy and healthy over the course of their stay.
Your dog will also have:
Fresh water throughout the day
A bed and blanket
Quiet times are also included in our daily schedule, which give our dogs a chance to rest and relax after a morning filled with playtime and socialization. This also helps them learn how to self-regulate and decompress after high-energy activity. A happy and well-behaved dog is one that can successfully transition between playtime and downtime, which also helps dogs settle down for the night.
Training is included in all of our care services, including boarding. Our trainer works with dogs throughout the day to teach them basic commands and obedience, such as sit and stay, so that they can learn to listen and focus when around potential distractions, such as other dogs. While boarding, your dog can be signed up for additional training services.
