A happy pup is a tired pup, and MetroBark does just that. Drop your dog off in the morning and rest assured that they will have one busy day, in fact most of our four legged clients start snoring as soon as leave the parking lot! Daycare is a great way for your dog to socialize, mentally and physically!

Before Your First Visit

We evaluate every new barker before we accept them into our daycare pack. This helps us make sure that everyone gets along well and that all of our buddies on the floor remain safe and happy. Before you drop off your pooch for the first time, you’ll have to download and fill out our New Dog Paperwork and our Health Agreement.

We accept new dogs Monday-Thursday before 8am.  No need to call ahead and make a reservation as we are prepared to introduce new dogs during those hours.  If you need to schedule your dog’s first day outside of those times, please call or email the facility to make arrangements.  Otherwise, please review the following Rules, Regulations and Policies, be sure to have copies of updated vaccination records, and bring your dog down for their first day of daycare!

Rules, Regulations and Policies

Dogs that have been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days will require veterinarian verification of health to be admitted or re-admitted. Dogs cannot be coughing or sneezing when dropped off.

Vaccinations – Dogs must be up-to-date on ALL vaccinations. Owners must submit written proof from their veterinarian. Vaccines include Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus, Bordatella (kennel cough), and Rabies. They must be on year-round monthly heartworm prevention, i.e. Interceptor, Heartguard, Sentinel or Revolution. They must also be on year-round monthly flea prevention, i.e. Frontline Top Spot, Advantage, Program or Sentinel. They must have yearly heartworm test and fecal sample.

Daycare Policies

Temperament & Breed – At Cleveland Metrobark, we believe an exercised dog is a happy, better behaved dog, regardless of breed. We do not breed discriminate; all dogs must pass the identical temperament test and dog-to-dog introduction as part of your admittance into our daycare program.

Arrival – All dogs must arrive on leash. To avoid injury, pinch collars will be removed, so another regular collar will be required. We will store your leash and alternative collar during the day. If you do not have a leash for your dog please come in and see staff member for assistance!

Fees – All fees are due and payable in advance each week, or at drop off of visit.

Late Fees / No show – If no notification or prior arrangements have been made, each fifteen minutes after 7:00 pm will cost $10.00. If an owner does not show by 7:30 pm the barker will stay overnight and be charged an overnight fee along with the daycare fee.

Lunches & Medications – We will be happy to attened to your dogs special needs! Please leave food or meds with instructions and we’ll do the rest!

Baby on Board – We understand that many of our clients are expanding their families and not just with fur-babies.

Just give us a call an hour before you plan to arrive and then another ring as you enter the parking lot and we will leash your barker and bring him/her to your door.
