What do I need to do prior to my first trip to Hoosier Doggy?

We require an evaluation prior to your stay with us.  Please plan to bring your doggy in at least 24 hours prior to your stay so that we can evaluate your puppy with our staff and assess their reactions to other dogs in a group setting.  It is best if this is a scheduled time, so please call us at 317-244-5000 to schedule this evaluation.

Fill out, sign and email the Hoosier Doggy Enrollment for and Medication for if applicable as well as all vet records to verify vaccinations.

Does Hoosier Doggy accept all dogs?

This is a simple question, but is a multi-layered answer..

  • Puppies – puppies MUST  have completed their shots, this means current Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella vaccinations.
  • No play dogs – Hoosier Doggy has and will continue to accept dogs that, for whatever reason do not or cannot go into full group play.  That being said, we reserve the right to evaluate each dog and act accordingly to ensure the safety of our clients and staff.  Hoosier Doggy offers 3 levels of play: full group play, small group play, and no play.   We will work with the owner to determine what is best for your dog.

What vaccinations do you require?

We require evidence of current rabies, distemper and Bordetella vaccinations. Typically, your vet will provide you with a record of your pet’s vaccinations along with a reminder or due date. This is the date we are looking for. It tells us both that your Doggy has had the vaccination and when it expires. Your Doggy also needs to be on a flea preventative.

What do I need to bring?

We recommend bringing the food your Doggy is accustomed to eating at home. This helps avoid the tummy upset that can result from a sudden diet change. We provide food and water bowls and comfy bedding. You are welcome to bring a toy and or washable bedding from home. Please nothing valuable or irreplaceable.

When can I drop off or pick up my Doggy?

You can drop off or pick up any time during our regular business hours, which are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. On Saturdays and Sundays, we are open 8:30-11 a.m. and 3-6 p.m. We are closed on major holidays: July 4, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

Does someone stay overnight with the Doggies?

No, we go home and let the doggies rest at night. Each doggy or family of doggies has their own private suite so everyone is safely tucked in at night. The facility is equipped with a monitored alarm system.
