FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I know if my dog is enjoying daycare?
Daycare isn't for every dog, like humans, some are more sociable than others. Some love the pack environment, some prefer more quiet time.
How important is customer service to Dogtanian?
When it comes to the dogs, it's our No.1 priority. We do everything in our power to keep them safe & stimulated. We do all we can to give them confidence & social skills. Their happiness & sense of security is what we strive for.
How do new dogs get integrated?
Assuming the dog passes the trial day, he/she is introduced to the older dogs first who are calm and assured, and help to calm the excitement of a first day at school!
What is the trial day for, and what are the chances my dog will not be accepted?
During the trial day, we introduce the new dog to a select number of dogs of all ages. During this time we closely monitor the new dog's behaviour and temperament.
How many dogs do you have at Dogtanian?
We have a 30m2 p/dog rule. e.g. our Table View premesis is 1200m2 and so we limit our intake to 40 dogs. Because some dogs only come 3 or 4 days a week, and the odd absentee, we generally have around 25 dogs on-site there on any given day.
How does drop-off and collection work?
Parents send a Whatsapp message to our drop-&-pick line (066 125 3850) when they are a minute or two from the daycare. We will then come out to meet the car and take the furry, on a lead, into the daycare.
What if I drop or pick-up late?
Cape Town traffic can be terrible! If you are caught up once or twice we will of course understand, and simply ask that you send us a Whatsapp with an estimate of what time you think you will make it by.
Can I view the facilities?
Yes you can - we do viewings at 6pm on weekdays or anytime on weekends - please arrange a time before you come.
Are there breeds you do not accept?
We don't take Bull Terriers or Rottweilers. Whilst many have wonderfully kind natures and mix great in a pack environment, years of breeding for the wrong reasons, and poor ownership habits have left many with an underlying agression that is simply too risky for us to take on considering dogs or all sizes and ages mix together.
Do the dogs ever fight?
Because of our induction process, and not taking dogs for one-off days, they are a settled, calm, confident pack who know each other well, and generally look out for each other, rather than challenge each other.
