Each and every service that we offer comes with the highest standard of safety and care from each of our highly trained team members. Want the best for your dog? Then, we are their choice and hopefully yours too! We want to exceed all expectations – theirs and yours!


At our Wixom Doggy Daycare Center, we provide a safe and fun environment for your pup to play and socialize. Our Coaches are trained to integrate toys into their play yards with the dogs. Doing this both physically and mentally stimulates our dogs, providing them with an optimal balance of play, exercise, and rest.


If you're looking for a safe and secure place to have your dog stay while you're away, consider having them board with us.  We offer varying types of suites for our overnight guests - providing bedding, blankets, etc., to ensure their stay is the best. All you bring is the dog, their food, treats, medication, collar, and leash.

Dog Spa &

Your dog deserves a spa day too!

    Does My Dog Need Any Vaccination?

    Yes, Bordetella, Distemper and Rabies.  Our parents are responsible for keeping their dogs records current with us.  Our system sends reminders to pet owners when the records of their dogs are about to or have already expired. We do not allow any dog to avail of any service until they are up-to-date with their vaccinations and are able to provide proof of their licensed veterinarian or breeder. We are not authorized to accept any other proof of vaccinations other than what is on the letterhead.
    List of required vaccinations:
    1.  Rabies
    2.  Bordetella
    3.  Distemper
    If your dog is not vaccinated for any reason, we will accept a Titer test report from your veterinarian.
    For any other vaccination or test required for your dog, we will rely on the professional opinion of your veterinarian.
    If your dog comes to our facility and we discover fleas or ticks, then we will immediately treat your dog and charge your account accordingly. That is why all dogs should always take flea and tick medicine. 

    Are Dogs In Doggy Daycare Supervised?

    Dogs in our playgroups are always supervised so that the play never gets out-of-hand, one-sided or stressful for anyone. Dogs who act inappropriately towards other dogs are removed for a quick time-out and may join the group again after they have calmed down and learned to play nicely with other dogs.  

    We require one team member to supervise 10 - 15 dogs in every playgroup.  For larger playgroups, there should be at least two team members to supervise regardless of their size.

    Do You Accept Aggressive Dogs?

    Last May 2019, we   made the decision to stop accepting dogs we consider unsuitable for our dog daycare or these are dogs that are aggressive to either humans or other dogs. 

    This decision to uphold our mission and core values meant ensuring the safety and quality of care for all our furry friends as well as our team members. We know that these dogs act out because they don't feel comfortable at our facility for whatever reason.

    We promise transparency to all our clients which is why we evaluate our pet guests everyday. Our pets have good and bad days, just like you and me. That is why it is critical for us to check their temperament daily.

    Please understand that we do not discriminate in any way, shape or form. For the safety and security of our other guests, we will turn away dogs that show any signs of aggression.
