Enrollment process:

  1. Enroll your dog with us by completing the enrollment form below or fill out the printable enrollment form and bring it by our office.
  2. Our staff will contact you after reviewing your application to schedule a Temperament Test (By Appointment).
  3. Send proof of vaccinations to Grateful Dog 430 17th Street, Sacramento, CA 95811, fax to 916.442.8505 or email to info@gratefuldogdaycare.com.
    (Dogs must be vaccinated for Bordetella at least 1 week prior to staying with us if unvaccinated or if vaccine is expired more than 7 days)
  4. Once your dog has a successful temperament test, we will book them a complimentary trial day of daycare.
  5. After the trial is complete, you will receive a report card with information on your daycare and/or overnight options.

We are often fully booked ahead of time and cannot accommodate temperament tests along with trial days, daycare or boarding on the same day. Please plan a few days ahead to assure there is time to book a temperament test and complete a trial day before needing care for your dog.
