Daycare spots


Daycare spots in Animalo are very easy to setup but still it allows you to configure it in many differenet ways.

In Animalo a daycare spot configuration can contain either 1 or more spots.

You can look at 1 daycare spot configuration as one field where dogs will be.

You are free to setup Animalo your own way.

We provide personal one on one setup trainings to configure Animalo the way you want it to work. Do not hesitate to get in touch with us!

Lets continue and see how we can work with boarding types.

Listing daycare configurations

From the side menu you can click on Rooms & Spots to get to the overview of your rooms.

On this page you do not only see a link to daycare spots, but also to boarding and service types.

{primary} If you cannot see daycare spots, see Your hotel on how to setup your service types.

On the daycare spots page you can see all your current daycare spots.

On the top are 2 tabs (on the bottom on mobile), if you have setup many boarding types, you can easily filter them out using the filter button.

In order to create a new daycare spots you can click on Add new spot. Below we go into more detail how to setup daycare spots.

Creating daycare spots

To start, click Add new spot on the top right (or bottom on mobile).

You will have to enter a name for the daycare room type. The name is used internally to show you in which room type the booking is located.

Amount of available spots: Here, you can set how many of these daycare spots you have available.

Pets per customer: here you can configure how many of the same pet type of the same customer you allow to be in a single booking.

You can setup discounts for multiple pets of the same customer, see Discount below on how to set this up.

Pet types: Select the pet types that can be placed together. This is usually just one. But can be useful when you have a room where both rabbits and birds are placed in their mini-homes.


{info} Animalo currently does not support automatic time based calculation of daycare pricing. In Animalo bookings are made up front (but can be edited during a period).

Price per day in daycare: The price per day in daycare.

Allow half day daycare: Half day daycare can be enabled if you accept pets for just the morning or afternoon.

Price per half day in daycare: The price per half day in daycare.


When your daycare room type has more than one slot, you will see some additional fields.

These fields are for configuring a discount when a single customer books more than one pet.

Discount method: The discount method to apply to bookings when there is more than one pet from the same customer.

Discount amount: Either a price or percentage based on the discount method to apply as a discount to the booking.

Discounts are optional.

Advanced pricing

Daycare spots can have advanced pricing. See the Advanced pricing tab, here you can fill in the pricing table.

The advanced pricing is used for giving discount when more daycare days are booked in one go.

Example: Min: 0, Max: 10, Price: 10.

A booking of maximum 10 days will have the price of 10 Euro per day.

Min: 11, Max: 0, Price: 7.5.

Bookings with 11 days or more will have a price of 7.5 Euro per day.

This is a complex configuration, but if needed we can help you set this up. Just get in touch!
