Dog Daycare / Pre-School

Unlike most daycares, we focus on quality, structured, enriched play with breaks and rest time to ensure your pup gets more out of each day. We asked dog behavior experts to design daycare sessions that feature specialized activities, indoor play, naps, and snacks, all in small group sizes. And each dog has its own space to relax, as well as access to its own food and water bowls. This also helps reduce the spread of viruses like canine papilloma virus (CPV) through community bowls.

How do you get started? All potential daycare clients must be up to date on vaccines, including Rabies, DHLPP & Canine Influenza vaccines. The Bordetella vaccine and negative fecal exam within the last year. Guests over 6 months of age must be spayed or neutered to participate. All dogs must also pass a temperament test. These tests are done on select days at select times and must be scheduled in advance. The test consists of meeting staff and other daycare/pre-school members.

Daycare/pre-school reservations are preferred at least 24 hours in advance. Your pet must be picked up by closing or they will spend the night in one of our standard suites at the owners expense. Please make any cancellations 48 hours in advance.

Studies show that socialized dogs are healthier, happier and live longer lives.  This is something we all want for our fur-babies!  Daycare guests are arranged by size and temperament and have the luxury of socializing throughout the day while supervised by our trained staff members.  We have a nearly 10,000 square foot facility, with five climate controlled indoor rooms equipped with rubber flooring to prevent sore muscles and joint pains.

Daycare / Preschool Schedule

Playtime: 7:00 a.m.—9:00 a.m.

Let the fun begin: dogs arrive, and it's playtime! Your dog can run around, sniff with new friends, play ball, chase bubbles, or play on our playground equipment. There's something for every pup!

Enrichment: 9:00 a.m.—11:00 a.m.

Challenge your dog's cognitive ability! Dogs will find their way through tunnels, learn to get treats out of brain puzzles, or learn fun new skills. We enrich and encourage them as they master new tricks to bring home to you!

Rest & Relaxation: 11:00 a.m.—12:30 p.m.

After all the morning fun, it's time to relax. Your dog will go to its own room for rest, relaxation, and lunch!

Potty Breaks: 12:30 p.m.—1:00 p.m.

It's potty time! Your pup will have the opportunity to either use our outdoor potty space or use our indoor potty spots.

Playtime: 1:00 p.m.—1:30 p.m.

All rested up? Time to play! We'll start in our largest play room which features 2,000 square feet of nonslip floor which is perfect for games of fetch! If your pup is more laid-back, they can hang out with friends and get cuddles from the staff. What better way to spend an afternoon?

Enrichment: 1:30 p.m.—2:30 p.m.

Like in the morning, we'll challenge your dog's cognitive ability with light agility courses, new skills, and more.

Rest & Relaxation: 2:30 p.m.—3:30 p.m.

Time for an afternoon nap! (Because who doesn't love naps?)

Playtime: 3:30 p.m.—5:00 p.m.

After a quick potty break, we head right back into the fun. A combination of social and playtime is sure to keep your pup entertained. They can try ramps, tunnels, snuggles, and more!

Time to Go Home: 5:00 p.m.—7:00 p.m.

And just like that, it's time to wrap up the day. Be sure to listen closely while your fur baby tells you all the exciting things that happened today!
