Daycare provides a safe, healthy and structured environment for your dog to socialize and play with dogs of similar size and play style.
SOME REASONS YOUR DOG MIGHT NEED TO BE A DAYCARE DOG
- Your dog spends all or part of his day unplanting what you spent all weekend planting
- Your dog spends hours on what he thinks is the best chew toy only to be told it was your favorite shoe not his favorite chew
- Your dog sees every shut door as a temporary obstacle you want him to chew through
- A couch is never just a couch when it can be eaten
- Your dog waits all day for someone to come home and throw the ball again and again and again
- Nobody seems to appreciate the art and skill your dog puts into his howling performances
- You keep putting your dog behind the fence it took him all day to master jumping over
- Your dog thinks his name is really; "blah, blah, blah, baaaad doooog, bad dog"
In all seriousness, staying home alone all day would drive the best of any social creature mad and your dog is no exception. Daycare can provide the physical and mental exercise that keeps your dog a healthy and happy member of your family. Please consider daycare to solve any problems before you relinquish your dog to a shelter or rescue! Dogs are to be loved and enjoyed, not thrown away. We can help.
Our daycare is an all natural setting in almost 6000 sq feet outdoor wonderland designed by us for dogs. And because our daycare is structured by size and play style, we can focus on keeping your dog safe and happy. Our philosophy is that daycare should be more than just a housing facility, we structure our day much like a preschool by rewarding positive behavior, using short teaching sessions to keep them thinking, and daily lessons in good dog manners that include being sent to 'time out' areas if they 'play too rough'.
Boarders are invited to spend the night with us anytime. We offer convenient and flexible drop off and pick up times so you won't have to pay for an extra day you didn't really need.
Your dog gets to play during the day, followed by dinner and some more outdoor time getting one last sniff before bed. Before bedtime, boarders can have some chew time while they listen to music specially engineered to relax dogs (I am not making this up) all the while enjoying comfort-zone pheromone scent proven to calm and confort dogs in a new setting. Dogs can sleep with other dogs on their own bed or in a comfortable kennel and if there is ever a problem, there are cameras to watch out for them and I live on property and am here every night to help.
We recommend you bring your dog to daycare leading up to a boarding period so they can establish friends and become comfortable that you will pick them up. This is a requirement for busy holiday weekends as we often book up early from our regular customers and will not have the space for dogs that are not familiar and therefore comfortable with our routines.
If your dog prefers a quieter environment, we have expanded our boarding to include private boarding and yard area. This is perfect for the dog that doesn't need the high energy and social atmosphere of daycare playgroups. A quiet walk can also be arranged along with alone time lounging in a private "back yard" area. Please let us know if you need the private boarding or daycare boarding experience when you make your next reservation as that space is very limited and not available on busy holiday weekends.
Customer Service: Our goal is to have your dogs love to visit us but also to supply great customer service to you, their person. If there is ever a problem, question or concern, the owner is on site and accessible every day.
