Daycare

Safety is our number one priority. In order to ensure their safety and the safety of our other guests, each dog is given a two-part evaluation before being permitted to join group play sessions. Pets who prefer to spend time alone will receive customized, individual play sessions so they can still get the most out of their stay!

  • Play structures, toys and yards for all sized dogs with enough room to zoom - zoom - zoom for all energy levels
  • Raised orthopedic beds throughout for those that need a break from playing
  • Pool parties in our swimming pools
  • All dogs go up for rest - feedings - water for 2 hours.  As important it is to exercise and play, it's just as important they get proper rest.

Day Play: Designed for furry social butterflies who love to make friends! It includes over SIX hours of play in our top-of-the-line indoor and outdoor play areas. Don’t worry – there’s also plenty of room to relax, if needed!  All dogs are assigned a private suite for their resting and feeding pleasure.

It includes a relaxing private room, movies or soothing music, multiple potty walks, room service, and up to 3 meals/snacks.  Private Play too is something we pride ourselves with, if they don’t like to socialize, we will respect that too… Enroll today!!

Guests spend the day having a blast with their friends during a play session and finish with diva-style pampering to end the day looking fabulous!  We will discount your daycare for Spa & Grooming appointments made with daycare.  $10 off all day daycare only.

Dog Day Care

We take loving care to acclimate them to the proper social group. Our yards are structured by dog size and temperament, however there are instances where a more docile large dog may be in with small dogs and a mid-size dog in with larger dogs.  Our assessment advisors are trained to understand the environment each dog will thrive in the most. 

Four indoor areas provide fun and exercise in a supervised setting. 2 outdoor AstroTurf play yards with pools and toys are just what every dog needs during our spring, summer and fall days.  Daily, our team customizes our play groups ensuring each pet has the experience they desire. Our indoor play yards are Slooow Roll - Puppy Play - Big Dawg yard -  and Tiny Town yard which facilitate a safe, controlled environment for socialization and play while being monitored by our trained team.  We also offer 3 outdoor play yards for our summer time fun.... with pools, gym equipment and toys.

Our daycare is unique in that our staff does not just monitor dogs, they engage with the dogs to ensure they have the best time while here with us.  Our Play yards are equipped with toys, so if your dog hoards or has toy aggression, we may not be the place for them.
