Dog Daycare

Many pet owners work long hours, leaving their dogs home alone without mental or physical stimulation. Daycare is a fun alternative to crating or leaving your dog home alone. Our dog daycare allows you to leave your pup with us for the day knowing they are getting the very best experience through  positive canine interaction, physical exercise, and mental stimulation. 

Playgroups

Dogs are naturally social creatures who enjoy regular, positive interactions with other canines. In the correct environment, group play can be a positive tool to enhance your dog's behavior and obedience training. During group play our staff works with the play group to help improve basic manners and promote good social cues/recognition.
With 13,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor play space, every dog has all the room they need to catch the zoomies and stretch their legs or find a comfortable piece of play furniture and snooze the day away.
  • Dogs are grouped separately based on size and play style.
  • We maintain a strict maximum 15 to 1 dog to staff ratio so every play group is properly supervised.
  • All staff members are trained in Pet CPR and Emergency First-Aid.
  • Our staff is continually training in the latest dog daycare standards and canine handling/behavior literature so your pup gets the best interaction possible.

Temperament Testing

All Daycare Dogs must pass a Daycare Screening and Temperament Test before being "Daycare Approved."  This screening consists of a "touch test" (seeing if the dog will allow us to touch their back, tail, and feet), a "crate test" (crates are used for "cool-downs" or "timeouts" if a dog becomes overstimulated), and a slow introduction to the group of dogs. We have several indoor and outdoor play yards which we use to facilitate the screening. Your dog will be introduced to the first play yard and given time to become comfortable after which we will bring dogs of similar energy and size dogs over to meet him or her. During these initial introductions, we focus heavily on physical cues and body language to ensure Daycare is fun, not stressful. 

Daycare Schedule

Daycare is available Monday through Saturday.

Our daycare environment is designed to provide proper stimulation and exercise to your dog. After a full day of playing and running around they may be noticeably more tired after you pick them up.

Also, remember that dogs play with their mouths and feet. They may get scrapes, scratches, or even punctures from a tooth when wrestling with other dogs. Just like schoolchildren on the playground, these things can happen even with constant supervision. We do not allow aggressive dogs and proactively work to ensure play does not escalate beyond acceptable standards. If you have questions regarding how your dog is doing in group play feel free to give us a call!

- Full Day: $27.00 (anything over 5 hours)
