About Daycare

Our daycare program offers supervised, off-leash social play for dogs of all sizes, breeds, and temperaments. Whether you're looking for a fun place for your dog to stay while you're at work, or you need a safe place for your energetic friend to burn off some energy, we'd love to have your dog be apart of our daycare program! Starting June 1st, 2024, all dogs over the age of 6 months old must be spayed or neutered in order to be eligible for playgroup.

We offer three different groups all day: small dogs, calm/geriatric dogs, and active dogs.

By separating dogs by age, size, and temperament, we eliminate some of the risks involved with mixing dogs of multiple sizes and different energies together. Our program strives to create a safe environment for your four-legged friend, which includes complete supervision of our playgroups by at least one of our trained handlers at all times. Our Small Dog and Calm Dog playgroups are rotated during our designated playgroup times, allowing ample time for both groups to socialize and play, while our Active Dog playgroup plays during the entire designated playgroup time. See our Day in the Life schedule below.

Every boarding and daycare dog that participates in our daycare program will need to complete a playgroup assessment with us to ensure he or she can safely and appropriately play and socialize with the other dogs. Additional information regarding our evaluation process can be found below.

Daycare is available to all dogs regardless if they place into one of our playgroups or not! Those who are not participating in our playgroups will receive individual potty breaks throughout the day at 7am, 9am, 11am, and 3pm. Individual playtime can be purchased separately for additional one-on-one time with one of our handlers. 

New daycare clients, please click on the Login/Register link in our page menu to self-register! We require that you upload or email your dog's vaccine records prior to coming in for their first visit with us so we can ensure they meet the vaccine requirements listed below. Please read more information below regarding our playgroup assessment process and times.

Vaccine Requirements

Bordetella - every 6 months

Distemper/Parvo (DHPP or DAPP) - 1 Year or 3 Year

We understand how doggone confusing vaccines can be, so we have created a page dedicated to breaking down our vaccine policies and answering our client's frequently asked questions.

Playgroup Assessments

Playgroup assessments allow our trained handlers to safely evaluate your dog's behavior prior to placing him or her into a large group of +15 dogs. We utilize both on-leash and off-leash greetings to determine which of our three playgroups your dog will socialize the best in.

Playgroup assessments are conducted Monday through Saturday at 1pm.

Please plan to drop your dog off with us by 12pm on their first day with us so they can be introduced to the sights and smells of the facility prior to their playgroup assessment. Boarding dogs are not required to complete their assessment prior to staying with us, but we highly recommend doing so if possible. Please call to schedule your dog's playgroup assessment with us and plan to leave your dog with us for least 2 hours during their first visit. Our playgroup assessment is $13/dog. This fee is waived for dogs who stay with us for more than 4 hours or who receive their playgroup assessment during a boarding stay with us.

We do not require dogs to pass our playgroup assessment in order to be able to stay with us for boarding or daycare.

Playgroup isn't for everyone, and hey, we get it! That's why we welcome all dogs to stay with us even if they do not pass their assessment with us. Some dogs require several visits before they are completely comfortable socializing in a larger group of dogs, while others prefer one-on-one attention with our handlers. We offer one-on-one playtime sessions with our handlers for an additional fee. Please view our Extra Services page for more information.


Play Areas

We offer indoor and outdoor accommodations so your dog can play regardless of the weather! Play areas are completely sanitized at the end of each day and spot cleaned throughout the day. Our indoor playrooms feature rubber flooring that absorbs impact while our outdoor yards are complete with professional artificial turf. Both types of surfaces allow for proper cleaning and sanitation.
