Doggy daycare is a place to take your dogs to play for the day in a well-supervised, clean, safe, and fun environment.
We accept puppies of all ages! As long as they are on track with their vaccinations and neutered by 7 months, they can come to play.
Frequent participation in doggy daycare provides the opportunity to:
● Provide regular exercise to maintain a healthy weight
● Improve their socialization with dogs and people
● Relieve separation anxiety, boredom, and destructive behavior at home
They play! They can enjoy our multiple climate-controlled playrooms, as well as our spacious outdoor area while being supervised by our dog handlers. Overnight guests play all day with our daycare guests, just taking breaks for meals and rest as needed.
Since our dogs interact in an all-day play environment, it's important for them to get along with others. We require your pup to come in for a Meet & Greet, which is essentially a trial day, to see how they interact with our group of dogs and staff members.
We require your pup to be:
● Spayed or neutered (if seven months or older)
● Current on Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella vaccines
● On a Flea/tick regimen and in good overall health
● Wearing a quick-release collar with a name tag
● Friendly with other dogs and people
● Able to pass our Meet & Greet
A Meet & Greet is a 3-hour evaluation to make sure your dog is comfortable with our group of guests and staff. We will slowly introduce your pup to our group one at a time so as to not overwhelm them.
A Meet & Greet is required because we need to ensure they are comfortable and having fun. It ensures the safety of your dog, other dogs, as well as our staff members.
The Meet & Greet costs $18.
We do not! As long as your pup can pass our Meet & Greet, they are welcome with open arms.
Similar to children on a playground, it is possible for dogs to sustain minor injuries while playing in daycare. During normal dog play, a dog may get small scratches, nicks, or lose a bit of fur. More serious injuries are very rare. Our staff members are trained in dog behavior. If serious treatment is needed, we will call you and rush your pup to your personal vet or the emergency vet if your vet is unavailable.
All dogs are different, so this will depend on your dog. If they have been well socialized, they tend to do well. Our Meet & Greet will help determine if we are a good fit for your pup. We also regularly evaluate our guests' behaviors, so if we notice your pup isn't enjoying their time here, we will let you know.
Your dog will be tired. Why? They are playing all day! If we notice your pup is becoming overly tired during the day, we will separate them for a short nap.
Your dog may also be thirsty. Water is available at all times during the day, but playing hard all day can make them more thirsty.
It's common for dogs' paw pads to be sore after playing, especially when they first start coming to daycare. Most dogs' paws aren't used to playing all day, but they will build stronger pads the more they visit us!
Meet & Greet - yes. After you have filled out a registration form, we can schedule your first visit.
Daycare - no. Once you have passed the Meet & Greet, you do not need a reservation. You can stop by anytime!
We require that all dogs must be spayed or neutered by 7 months old in order to receive daycare and boarding services.
We get asked this question a ton! Please know that clean water is available to our guests at all times. Some dogs don't drink as much due to the extra amount of mental stimulation they experience being in new surroundings. They can get overly excited and focus less on drinking. While this is common, please know that we monitor your pet's water intake and we will let you know if they are refusing to drink. If your dog drinks in excess when they get home, simply keep an eye on how much water they drink in short periods as drinking large amounts of water too quickly may cause vomiting.
Our daycare passes are prepaid discounted daycare days that you can use anytime within 6 months of purchase. We offer 5-day, 10-day or 20-day passes. These passes are a great way to save some money on your pet's daycare and allow you to skip the checkout process when picking up your pup!
On a daily basis, our guests are rotated through a variety of activities. They spend time outdoors and indoors, playing games with the staff, etc. In addition to our daily fun, follow us on Facebook/Instagram so you know when we have special activities such as themed photoshoots, holiday parties, and more!
Our group sizes vary significantly from day to day. On slower days, if all guests are comfortable together, we have all sizes playing together. On busier days, we will divide guests based on size/temperament. We read the room and allow the dogs to tell us what kind of environment they need that day.
Wonderful question! While the majority of our corrections are done with verbal cues and body language, they are not always sufficient in gaining the attention we need in a large room of playful pups. Because of this, our staff may utilize a spray bottle to get a quick response from a dog who may not hear or see us.
If a dog is continuously disruptive, they may be leashed and taken from the group until they are able to safely re-enter. In the rare event that we have an altercation, staff will immediately separate and leash the dogs, removing them from the group to assess for injury.
Don't worry! There is nothing wrong with your dog!
Not every dog is cut out for daycare. There are so many factors that contribute to this. Your pup may only play well with others when you are present. They might be intimidated by the size of the pack, or they may just be having an off day. Much like children, dogs act very differently in front of their parents than they do when they are left to their own means. Unfortunately they can't always tell us how they feel or what they want. Some dogs just don't adapt well to the pack- this doesn't mean that there is anything wrong with your pet!
If you feel it was an off-day or a matter of needing more time to adapt, we may offer a second evaluation. Our staff will discuss your options to find the best fit for you and your pup.
