Q: I want my puppy socialized but I’m concerned that all day in the group might be too much for him.

A:   Sometimes Shaggy Hound Daycare can be overstimulating or just overwhelming for a younger puppy.  Our experienced handlers monitor all daycare members for signs of over-stimulation, overheating, getting too cold, getting cranky or just plain old wearing out.

Q: Can you administer medications in daycare?

A:  Yes. Medications will be scheduled according to your instructions and you will be asked to sign a “Medication Sheet” on drop-off.  We can administer both “scheduled” and “as needed” medications during the day.  We do not stock or provide medications.

Q: Where are you located?

Shaggy Hound is located at 620 Yellow Jacket Dr, Starkville, MS 39759. You can also use MapQuest to find us here.
