Dog Daycare - Weekdays 8 am to 6 pm

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 play groups are focused on fun and the well being 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 behavior. 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. Visit. https://thedoggurus.com/knowing-dogs-staff-training/  for more information. We are proud members of the Dog Gurus group and we have taken their safety pledge.

Dog Daycare

 The benefits for your dog:

  • Continue learning social skills with other dogs and humans.
  • Reinforcement of simple manners such as sit, down, wait, stay, come and quiet.
  • Relief from loneliness and the anxiety that loneliness can sometimes cause in dogs, including separation anxiety.
  • Exercise throughout the day, which can aid in weight control.

The benefits for you:

  • Daycare allows you to relax with your dog at the end of busy day.
  • Daycare reduces boredom which can lead to destructive behaviors such as barking and chewing.
  • Peace of mind knowing your dog is cared for and having fun when you have long days at work.

Overnight Lodging for Dogs

Facility Design

Our facility was designed and built with your pet's needs and safety in mind. We offer large suites for both dogs and cats and our entire facility is fire sprinkled for the safety of your pet.


Dogs - Overnight Lodging

Each guest has his/her own suite with an outdoor patio.   Allowing our guests the freedom to go in and out during the day and evening, weather permitting. A self-regulated potty area can reduce stress; your pet is not forced to potty inside or wait for a staff member to take him/her out for elimination. The patio area is covered to protect from rain or direct sun. Guests are checked between 9 and 10 pm each evening and in cooler weather are closed in for the night.

The interior sleeping area has a solid, high barrier between each guest, providing for a more natural den-like environment.   We provide blankets and a soft raised bedding platform.  In summer, the inside air is cooled and in winter, the floors are heated. We play music specifically designed to relax and calm the canine.
