Becoming a Member

What are the age requirements for becoming a fur-member?

All Daycare and Hoteling fur-members must be at least 4 months old.

Does my dog need to be spayed or neutered?

Paws ‘n’ Rec requires all fur-members to be spayed or neutered by 7 months.

What vaccinations do you require?

Paws ‘n’ Rec requires proof of up-to-date vaccinations from a vet for all fur-members for the following vaccinations/health examinations
– Bordetella (every 6 months if administered orally, yearly if administered via injection or intranasally)
– Distemper/DHPP/DA2PP
– Rabies
– Flea Preventative
– Canine Influenza (strongly recommended but not required. There has not been a major outbreak in the Tampa Bay area for years, but if that ever occurs, we may require the vaccine for all fur babies)

If you don’t have your vaccination records on hand, we can help you obtain them from your vet.

Do you accept all breeds?

All breeds are welcome at Paws ‘n’ Rec! Every fur-member must pass an initial evaluation and is expected to abide by the same set of rules, regardless of breed.

How Our Memberships Work

Do I have to be a member to utilize Paws ‘n’ Rec services?

Paws ‘n’ Rec is a membership-based facility, so all pups and their humans must be registered as a member in order to join us for daycare or overnight boarding stays. Our membership-based model allows us to accurately control our capacity and gives us the unique opportunity to learn our pups on a more personal level, helping us to provide the best care possible.

What is the difference between Daycare Adventure
Memberships and the Hotel Membership?

Daycare Adventure Members can reserve both daycare days and overnight boarding stays, while Hoteling Members can only reserve boarding stays.

When Daycare Adventure Members visit us, whether just for the day or for an overnight boarding stay, they benefit from action-packed small group play sessions (daycare) throughout the day.

When Hoteling Members visit us for overnight boarding stays, they too benefit from small group play sessions if they have the temperament to join our Adventure members, and they stay in state of the art cabins made in the US.

Our Facility Model

How does Paws ‘n’ Rec facilitate Daycare Adventure group play?

To ensure the safety and comfort of our Daycare Adventurers, our play groups are comprised of 10-15 dogs who share similar size, temperaments, and play styles. There are always at least 2 Adventure Guides supervising each group at all times.

Daycare Adventure Members enjoy action-packed play sessions with their fur-iends for 30-45 minutes at a time before heading to their personal suites to relax and prepare for their next adventure! We rotate groups throughout the entire day and also provide two overnight play sessions as well as a potty break each night.

Why don’t you offer all day play?

At Paws ‘n’ Rec, the safety and well-being of our members is our top priority, which is why we don’t offer all day play. Doggy daycares have begun to increase in popularity as more and more people want their furry family member to enjoy socialization and stimulation. However, there’s such thing as too much stimulation. Allowing pups to play non-stop for excessive amounts of time has been found to potentially lead to issues such as over-exhaustion, over-arousal (which can lead to aggression), overheating (especially in this FL sun!), and more. When it comes to making sure our fur-members have the most fun while remaining comfortable and safe, we’ve found that the small breaks in between play cycles make a big difference. Just like you take breaks during physical activity, so should your pup!

Add-On Services

Do you offer baths or grooming?

– Baths, Blow and Brush Outs
– Nail Trimmings
– Teeth Brushings
– Ear Cleanings
– FURminator de-shedding treatments

Do you offer pick-up and drop-off services?
