What will my dog do at daycare?

The dogs will socialize with other canines of similar temperaments off leash in a cage free environment. Playtime is 100% monitored by trained staff members. We have two separate play areas to safely accommodate dogs all different sizes, ages and temperaments.

Throughout the day we will work with the dogs on basic obedience by running through commands (sit, down, stay, etc.). We also incorporate monthly enrichment activities that keep the pups mentally stimulated as well as physically. We allow all dogs to run, play, nap according to how they are feeling that day. At the end of the day you will have a relaxed, happy and exhausted dog!
