Quality for your best friendDedicated to superlative care
Looking to keep your pup socialized? Have a busy day and need a way to exercise your dog? Want to provide healthy physical and mental stimulation for your furry companion? Whatever your reason, we are here for you!
Studies show that continued socialization contribute to healthier, happier dogs that live longer lives. We are dedicated to providing superlative care in an environment that supports the physical, emotional, and mental needs of your pet. Our focus is on supervised, quality, enriched play with breaks and rest time to be sure each guest enjoys their day. During break times, each dog is in their own private space to rest, eat lunch, drink water, and get ready for more play.
Every staff member completes a group play training certification to learn specialized group activities for engagement and fun throughout the day. We take the unique personalities of each dog into consideration when arranging daily groups. Our guests socialize with dogs that have like play styles and temperaments along with similar physical size. Our playrooms also are suited with rubber flooring to prevent sore muscles and joint pains.

We love to welcome new pack members! There are a few things to do to get started. Be sure your pup has the required vaccinations. We require Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella. Dogs recently adopted must be in home for two weeks prior to coming to daycare or boarding and show no signs of coughing, sneezing, or any other symptoms of illness. All dogs 7 months or older must be spayed or neutered.
