We’re not totally out of the woods yet. But the year ahead is looking brighter than it did 12 months ago. And for many of us, that means tiptoeing back into a routine that takes us outside of home for *audible gasp* hours at a time. 

Meanwhile, our constant footside companions wonder what to make of these extended absences. So as you ease into a new routine that includes more socialization, it’s good to do the same for your dog. But eight action-packed hours of sniffing, prancing and playing, can still take time to warm up to.

We get it. So much so, that we offer half-days for this very reason. You could consider it Playtime Lite™ or Diet Daycare™. But unfortunately, we spent our money on brand new turf, so we’ll have to drop naming rights and go with the much clearer, but boring-sounding half-day. 

It’s a pretty simple premise. A half-day runs up to 5 hours and costs up to 40% less than our usual full day prices. It’s all the fun and ease of daycare in a smaller package, which includes flexible pickup and dropoff times during our regular operating hours. If you’ve stayed with us before, you can book half-days via the Gingr app.

If you’re new around here, we’ll still need to jump through a few hoops before your pup is play-ready. All dogs must:

  • Be at least 12 weeks old, plus be spayed or neutered if over 7 months old.
  • Complete a free, 45-minute Sniff Around before their first daycare stay. 
  • Have up-to-date records for everyone’s favorite word right now, vaccinations: DHLPP, rabies, Bordetella, canine influenza, and a negative fecal test.
  • Schedule a booking with our trainers, so they can learn how to jump through real hoops. (This one is optional.)

That should just about do it. We look forward to seeing your dog around the Bowl real soon, no matter the time. Ciao ciao!
