For peace of mind and safety of all, K9 Academy International has developed a comprehensive screening process. Day Care may not be for all dogs and K9 Academy International reserves the right not to admit some dogs based on temperament and level of sociability… However we will try our best to work with your dog if he needs some help, by socializing him/her with one of our personal dogs. We are also specialized in taking care of aggressive dogs. Aggressive dogs will not get in contact with other dogs. We welcome all friendly dogs, that are not protective of toys, food or space. Dogs must be in good general health and owners must provide Veterinary proof of all current vaccinations.
