Fur’st Choice: Doggy Daycare & Boarding in Virginia Beach
Fur’st Choice Doggy Daycare has been providing Virginia Beach with a fun and safe dog daycare and boarding environment since 2009. Whether you’re gone for the day or for vacation, bring your dog to burn off that excess energy and make new friends while you’re away. We believe consistent interaction and exercise is vital for keeping pets happy.
We offer socialized daycare and we take the time to get to know your dog. Fur’st Choice is an intimate environment, where special needs can be met and unique personalities recognized for a maximum play experience. At Fur’st Choice, our main goal is to give your dog a home away from home with tons of fun, friends, and love. Your pet will be able to relax in our climate-controlled inside areas or romp though our open air outside play areas. All of these areas vary in size and are cleaned daily, so no matter the weather, your dog can enjoy a full playtime with individualized attention and personal care.
We require temperament tests for all new campers, where we will evaluate each dog’s behavior in our environment. We use a gradual introduction to the pack in order to provide a secure setting for these assessments. The temperament test (which is by appointment only) is $10 and includes one-half a day of playtime for new campers who meet our temperament compatibility requirements. We require a hard copy of your dog’s current vaccinations, which need to include 6-month or yearly bordetella (for kennel cough), influenza, rabies, and distemper/parvo (sometimes known as DHLP or DHLLP). Pets should have a current fecal and be on heartworm and flea prevention. All dogs 7 months and older must be spayed or neutered. We provide a “quick-release” collar for you dog to wear while playing to comply with safety standards.
