Would my dog
benefit from dog daycare?
have a dog that has a lot of energy, or a
puppy that must be supervised while you are at
work, or an older dog that just wants to be
surrounded by the company of others, then YES!,
your dog will benefit. In addition, many dogs
with shy tendencies are given a wonderful, safe environment, to gain confidence and
interact with other dogs and people. All
non-aggressive dogs can benefit from the fun and
exercise that dog daycare provides.
We are more than just a Dog Daycare
We provide more than just playtime for your dog - we also cater to you by providing add-on services for convenience since we know our customers are busy people!
If you forget your dog's lunch or snack, you can purchase gourmet treats from us. Our desserts, breath mints, birthday cookies, and special occasion treats are all natural and baked locally by Dogma Bakery.
We'll gladly give your dog a bath while attending daycare. We exclusively use high-quality earthbath shampoos made of all natural, non-toxic, paraben free, phthalate free, and phosphate free shampoos made in the USA with human-grade ingredients and pure essential oils.
Need assistance getting your dog to daycare or know you will be late at work. We offer pet taxi services to conveniently transport your dog to and from our facility.
Need to drop your dog off before our doors open so you can get on your way to work? We offer a Early Drop Off option. For an additional $8 (free for Utlimate Socialites), you can drop your dog off with us as early as 6:30am. Reservations are required. We are generally tending to boarded dogs during this time, so it is important to inform us in advance if you are planning to drop off early.
We provide daily communication and feedback on your dog's behavior while attending daycare. If we observe issues or behavior problems while in daycare, our daycare team can communicate this to our Dog Training department. Our trainers are easily and readily accessible for further assistance.

Bring paperwork and vaccinations to your evaluation. Required vaccinations: Bordatella,
