Daycare Eligibility Daycare Eligibility To come to Doggy Daycare at A Place for Paws, your dog must be at least twelve weeks old, healthy and being cared for as your veterinarian recommends. Dogs over a year old must be spayed or neutered. In addition, your dog must be friendly with people and other dogs and cannot be protective of food, space or toys. All dogs must be evaluated prior to their first visit. We can do daycare evaluations at most Saturday Play Days or at Puppy Play on Thursday evenings. We can also evaluate at certain times of day during daycare hours. Please call to set up an appointment for your dog’s daycare evaluation.
