Four Dogs on Leashes at the Park

Come As You Are!

Our indoor/outdoor facility provides an exciting, interactive playground where your dog can socialize and burn energy with other dogs in a supervised environment. Safety is our top priority! We maintain a high staff-players ratio and utilize behavior assessments to ensure any red flags are identified and addressed. Any pups that want to join our pack will be introduced and carefully monitored by staff trained to recognize fear, stress, and aggression, and respond appropriately so all players have an enjoyable time with friends.

Daycare packages Available!

7 Dogs Playing Near a Lake

Before You Arrive:

  • Dogs over 6m must be spayed or neutered

  • Current on Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, Influenza, and Bordetella (6m)

  • Using monthly heartworm prevention is encouraged!

  • Have a negative fecal check within 12m

  • Dress appropriately: harnesses and collars are removed during play but everyone must arrive and exit the facility securely on leash. For dogs that prefer to be moved around our facility with their own collar rather than our slip leads, they will be required to wear a snap-on, not a buckle collar.

Dogs Will Be Dogs

Sometimes good dogs just have a bad day! We value clear communication and feel it is important that you are aware of your dog’s day. We will report any incidents or abnormal behaviors and work with you and your pup if a management plan is needed to ensure they are safe and comfortable in the group.

Similar to an overstimulated toddler, most dogs cannot handle a full day going full-speed and some are too excited to self-regulate. As we get to know your dog, they will be assigned a group based on personality and play style so we can implement critical nap rotations as needed.

Doggie Daystay

A Daycare Alternative!

This option is especially for dogs who either are not spayed/neutered or aren’t good candidates for group play but still need to get out of the house. DayStay is an option that allows your pet to spend the day with us and receive extra attention and potty breaks during the day and their very own one-on-one play time doing whatever your pet likes the best. We can play ball, tug-of-war, take a walk in the backyard, or simply have some snuggly lap time. Your choice!

Daystay is also available for cats - this is frequently used if you will be having work done in your home and want the assurance of knowing that there will not be any accidental escapes with the traffic in and out.
