Dog Boarding & Daycare in the Iowa City Area

NOTICE: Due to high demand, we are not currently conducting Intake Interviews for new customers. You are welcome to send in an application to be added to our wait list (see “Steps to Enroll”). If you are an existing customer who is getting a new dog, you will be given priority on this wait list. Thank you! 

Steps to Enroll Your Dog(s)

  1. Complete the JDPC Intake Interview Questionnaire – for Daycare or Boarding — Then fax or email your completed form, along with a copy of your dog’s most recent vaccination due dates for Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella, to us as 319-545-7113 or info@justdogsplaycare.com
  2. Once we receive your questionnaire and vaccination records, we will contact you to schedule an Intake Interview & Temperament Test with your dog. Please plan ahead–we are often scheduling out several weeks.
  3. At the Intake Interview, we will discuss your questionnaire & conduct a temperament test with your dog. At that time we will discuss your dog’s Trial Visit to Daycare (required before Boarding) and other scheduling needs.
    • Intake Fee: $20. $5 discount on Trial Visit if scheduled within 2 weeks of Intake Interview.
    • Please note: We currently have a Waiting List for Daycare Attendance on certain days of the week. Ask about this when you call.

On your dog’s Trial Visit to Doggie Daycare, we will assess how we believe your dog will do in our facility for the Daycare or Boarding needs you have requested. Our Fido’s First Day Report & photos of your dog socializing will provide details!
