Inclement Weather Policy

Dog Daycare

The daycare does not follow the Federal Government closings for weather or adverse road conditions. However, our employees may experience difficulty arriving to work that morning and be a little delayed. If we determine that it is necessary to close the daycare early, we will notify the customers whose dogs are already at daycare.

Boarding

We board dogs 365 days a year which is the main reason our dog daycare remains open during inclement weather. However if for some reason we find it necessary to close daycare, the dogs boarding with us will still receive care. We will instead operate under the holiday schedule with limited play hours and boarding pickup hours. Below is our schedule during holiday times/inclement weather:

  • Feeding times are 6am & 7pm
  • Play times are 10am-3pm
  • Pick-up times are 11am-3pm or 7pm-8pm (by appt only)
  • Drop-off times are 11am-2pm (by appt only)

Dog Training

Dog Training classes do not follow the federal government closing schedule. If weather or adverse road conditions warrant cancelling classes that evening, a determination will be made no later than 5pm. The trainer will notify all students of the class cancellation by email and by phone who were scheduled to attend that evening. Make-up classes will not be offered.

Dog Wash in Adams Morgan

If the Federal Government closes due to weather or adverse road conditions, the dog wash will also close.

Midday Dog Walks

  • Federal Government closes:  All midday walks will be cancelled at no charge to the client.
  • Federal Government remains open:  You may choose to stay home due to adverse travel conditions.  We ask that you contact our office by 9am the day of service so that we have time to inform the sitter and to avoid being charged for that day.
  • Fur-Get Me Not reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel midday walks due to weather, national emergency, and/or other emergency.  You will be notified of any cancellations. 

Pet Sitting

For pet sitting clients, we request that you provide us with emergency backup relatives or neighbors that can help out during those times where road conditions prohibit us from reaching your home.  We will take every step possible to ensure the safety of your pet which may require us to bring them home with us or find alternative boarding means.
