Dog Day Care for Small Dogs
Dog daycare is supervised off-leash play for socialized dogs.
Dog daycare is great for energetic, social dogs that enjoy playing
off-leash with other dogs of similar size and play style. During play, your dog benefits physically from exercise and mentally from obedience games. Daycare is not meant to socialize a dog that is afraid or aggressive toward other dogs.
Our off-leash play groups are focused on fun and the wellbeing of your dog. Providing a safe, positive social play experience for your pet is our priority. We are committed to understanding group dog behavior and educating all our staff on safe group play management techniques. The key to safe dog daycare operations is having staff well trained in dog play behaviors. Each of our daycare staff is trained and tested with the comprehensive and interactive training program "Knowing Dogs Staff Training Program." The Program was co-created by Robin Bennett and Susan Briggs of the Dog Gurus, industry leaders in training and safety for off- leash dog play.
