Dog daycare is supervised off-leash play for socialized dogs.
We require regular attendance and do not offer "drop in daycare".
"Regular attendance" means weekly visits so we can develop a relationship with your pet, this is very beneficial for establishing and maintaining healthy appropriate play with friends. Once we have established the foundation, we may approve less frequent visits.
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.
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.
Each day your pup will play in 3, 45 minute play groups. We play with toys, water and encourage fun fair play. In between play groups your pet will rest in one of our boarding suites. This sets your pet up for boarding comfortably with us in the future when you need to travel without 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.
Activities are separate, you can choose different activities each day.
Your dog must be enrolled in at least one activity each day, younger dogs and energetic dogs may need two activities per day. Puppies under a year, must be enrolled in two activities each day.
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.
