They may not want to go home!

Doggy day care is ideal for the busy pet owner and energetic dog! Any pet needing more attention, activity, exercise, or just some socialization throughout the day is welcome to join.

Our program allows you to drop your pet off before going to work, before running your daily errands, or whenever you’re ready for a break! It is an excellent opportunity to exercise and socialize your dog in a safe, supervised, and fun environment.

Dog Day Care Amenities

We have both indoor and outdoor play areas available. Our indoor room is climate-controlled, filled with entertainment and activities for your pet to enjoy. Our six patios have cement flooring with six-foot fencing to ensure your pet’s security. We also have a grassy yard for them to patrol. When the weather is warm, there are pools and fun water play available too!

Day Care Vaccine & Fecal Policy

Our goal is to provide a happy, safe, and disease free stay for all our boarding, grooming and daycare guests, and our employees.

Pets Overdue for Vaccines or Fecal Check

Vaccines and fecal checks can be done during the stay for pets with previous records (past vaccine and fecal records less than 1-year past due).

Pets with Fleas and/or Worms

Dogs and cats discovered to have fleas or internal parasites while boarding will be treated at the owner’s expense (this is pre authorized by the Boarding Release) and a $40 disinfection/cleaning fee will also be assessed.

Temperament Requirements

Every new member will be given a temperament test to evaluate his or her behavior around other animals and people. We do this to ensure the safety and well being of your pets as well as our staff.
