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!

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. 

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

We welcome safe and appropriate in-tact (un-neutered) males and (un-spayed) females to join our daycare program. We do not have an age-determined spay/neuter requirement for boarding and daycare dogs; however, because we rotate intact males and females in our playgroups to avoid exposure to one-another, intact dogs may receive limited playtime in our playgroups compared to dogs who are spayed or neutered.

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 will 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 have everything we require (see below). We do not need a reservation for your dog's first daycare visit or for temperament tests (Mondays through Fridays at 1pm).

Bordetella - every 6 months

Temperament Tests

Temperament tests 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 utilizing both on-leash and off-leash assessments to determine which of our three playgroups your dog will socialize the best in.

Temperament tests are conducted Monday through Friday at 1pm.

Boarding dogs are not required to complete their temperament test prior to staying with us, but we highly recommend doing so if time allows prior to your scheduled drop off date. Temperament tests do not need to be scheduled, but dogs must be pre-registered in our system for an easier check-in process and so we can confirm vaccines are up to date. Please allow at least 2 hours for your dog's temperament test. Each temperament test is $13/dog. The temperament test fee is waived for dogs who stay with us for more than 4 hours or who are boarding with us. 

We do not require dogs to pass our temperament test 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 temperament test. Some dogs require several additional visits before they are completely comfortable socializing with more than a handful of dogs, while others prefer one-on-one attention with our handlers.

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.
