About Us

Every Pet Deserves
Pawfect Care

OUR MISSION is to provide a safe, fun place for your dog to play and socialize.  We strive for every one of our dogs to be comfortable and confident while with us here at It’s A Dog’s Life Resort & Spa.
We accommodate the friskiest small dogs, the most rambunctious big dogs, and everyone in-between!  We can also provide a quiet place for older or convalescing dogs.  Our daycare services follow the Off-Leash Play and exercise.
