IMPORTANT UPDATE (7/20/2018) – Due to an outbreak of canine influenza in Michigan (not at Lucky Dog) we will NOT be accepting any new adult dogs or puppies, for boarding, daycare or temperament tests unless they have completed the series of 2 flu vaccines. We have required the flu vaccine since June of 2015 and will continue to update our requirements as needed.

Your dog will enjoy fun, safe, social play with constant supervision from experienced staff members. We have nearly 10,000 sq feet of playrooms. Each room inside and outside has play equipment and active friends waiting for your high energy pup to join them. Don’t have a high energy pooch? Sedentary and overweight dogs can get healthier just by coming to daycare.

Before starting daycare every dog is interviewed. After passing a free temperament test, dogs are allowed to play in daycare any day of the week. Which playroom your dog will play in depends on their breed, size, personality and activity level. At Lucky Dog all dogs receive ALL DAY daycare. We are open at 6:00am and dogs are welcome to stay until we close at 7:00pm.

Unlike other day cares, unless requested by owners or due to aggressive behavior, no pets receive a “break time” or are required to spend time in a kennel. Here at Lucky Dog we have fun all day long! “Of  course the play areas all have quiet corners and comfy beds for those canine cuties that need a little snooze time”. With holiday parties and  social events throughout the year Lucky Dog can be your Best Friends home away from home, so get ready for some fun!

Lucky Dog offers

  • Over 10,000 square feet for running, playing and socializing
  • Multiple indoor/outdoor play areas
  • All day access to outdoor areas landscaped with artificial turf & lots of play equipment
  • Constant supervision by mature staff to make sure everyone is playing nicely & everything is kept clean
  • Pools, sprinklers & bubbles for hot summer days

Please note the following requirements for adult dogs

  • All dogs older than 7 months must be spayed or neutered
  • All vaccinations must be current – age appropriate including:
  • Bordetella (Kennel Cough)-Required EVERY 6 months.
  • Negative Stool Test-Required EVERY 6 months.
  • Leptospirosis-Required yearly.
  • K9 Influenza-Required yearly.
  • (This is a separate flu vaccination and not included in the DHPP)
  • Rabies every 3 years.
  • DHPP every 3 years.
  • We strongly recommend but not require a heart worm test yearly and preventative every month.
  • We also strongly recommend flea and tick preventative.
  • Must be able to play nice with others in a group setting.
  • Temperament tests are required prior to daycare and boarding and will ensure your dog’s ability to play during their stay. The test is a 5-10 minute meet and greet with another dog, away from the owners. Tests are done 7 days a week from 10:00am to 12:00pm and 1:00pm to 3:00pm. No appointment is needed. All temperament tests are free of charge.
  • Please print out and bring the following form and current vaccination records with your dog for a temperament test.

Please note the following requirements for puppies

  • Puppies must be at least 10 weeks of age and have at least a series of two DHPP vaccines. These vaccines are usually given every 3 weeks until puppies reach 16-18 weeks.
  • Bordetella Vaccine for Kennel cough. Bordetella can be given like nose drops as an intranasal vaccine, as an oral vaccine squirted in the mouth or as a regular injectable vaccine. If receiving the injectable vaccine, puppies are required to complete the series of 2 prior to starting at Lucky Dog.
  • Negative Stool sample
  • Other vaccine series like Lepto and Influenza can be started after 12 weeks.
  • Rabies vaccines can be given after 16 weeks and are required by 6 months.
  • The most veterinarian recommended optimal time to socialize a puppy is between 8-12 weeks. It becomes more difficult with each week after that. Daycare helps shy and submissive dogs by building their confidence. Daycare also helps rambunctious puppies get tired by releasing pent up energy. At Lucky Dog puppies may start to attend daycare or boarding as early as 10 weeks of age as long as they have had two DHPP vaccines, a Bordetella vaccine, to help prevent Kennel Cough, and a negative fecal check. Our other vaccine requirements like Lepto, Influenza and Rabies are dependent upon the age and size of each puppy. Start your puppy early, help them grow up to become a confident and friendly canine companion.
