Not Your Typical Doggie Daycare

The traditional doggie daycare format involves putting massive groups of dogs together, sometimes separated by “large” and “small” dogs, but gives very little thought to dogs’ individual energy levels, personalities, and play styles. Introducing a new dog into this group can create a “me vs. them” mentality, and can also foster an unhealthy need for a dog (particularly a young, high-energy dog) to be in “go, go, go!” mode all the time. This can create problems at home when these dogs don’t get that outlet and makes them unpleasant living partners.


How Are We Different?

At our heart, we want dogs to be our partners, which means being able to go out in the world and do stuff, but also to cohabitate peacefully and have good social skills. We have structured our daycare a little differently, to give dogs more of a “home away from home” feeling and to foster good behaviors:

  1. Maximum of 8 dogs per play group – These smaller group sizes allow us to match dogs based on more factors, like temperament, play styles, age, and energy level so we ensure all dogs are having a good time. These smaller groups also allow for more natural rest periods
  2. Spacious yards with shelters allow for rest – Each of our yards is an open, natural-grass area that is either attached to one of our sleeping barns or has daytime shelters. There is enough space that dogs can take breaks when needed — having a natural flow of play / rest / play / rest eliminates the constant state of high arousal that can create problems at home.
  3. “Difficult Dogs” can have daycare too! Dogs who are not universally social often don’t get accepted into a traditional doggy daycare. However, because we are a training facility we can integrate dogs that might not be able to participate otherwise. If you have a dog that can only be select types of other dogs, we may be a great fit for you! For dogs who can’t be combined in any groups, our trainers might be able to help! We offer a daycare + training option to help your dog learn better social skills and to become more balanced.

We strive to create good habits for dogs in our care. If we observe behaviors contributing to poor social skills (i.e. fence fighting with other dogs, too rough play, etc.) or amplifying stress, we will provide owners with a detailed report and recommendation at pickup. We have a team of highly skilled and educated trainers on staff we can put you in contact with to help your dog get the most benefit out of their time with us! 

We also recognize that daycare is a highly stimulating environment. In consideration of our dogs’ mental and physical wellbeing, we ask clients to limit daycare visits to a maximum of 3x per week. 


Daycare Rates & Scheduling

Because of our training services, we do not offer “drop-in” daycare. Daycare must be scheduled ahead of time by using our online form or by contacting the office!

Puppy Play Yard

Just for puppies! Socialization is a critical component of turning a puppy into a healthy, happy adult dog. This is a special price for puppies 6 months and under where puppies are combined into a play group of other similar-aged puppies OR carefully-selected older mentor dogs (if no other puppies available) and are supervised by our kennel staff and trainers to ensure that their interactions and experiences are positive and constructive.

*Exceptions to age bracket made on a case by case basis. Puppies older than 6 months may still participate in our regular daycare services!
