Doggie Daycare

Don’t want to leave your 4-legged kiddo locked up in their crate all day or home alone for hours on end? Doggie Daycare is the solution!

Doggie Daycare will keep your dog physically and mentally stimulated all day long. While playing, your dog is continuously supervised by trained professionals to ensure they are enjoying themselves. After a full day of play, your kiddo will go home tired, happy, and ready for a quiet evening at home.

Some additional benefits other than just having a sleepy dog, Doggie Daycare is the perfect opportunity for pet socialization. Not only will your dog meet other dogs, but they will also meet new people. If your dog is a little shy and timid with other people and/or other dogs, Doggie Daycare is the perfect solution to allow your dog to slowly get used to others without being overwhelmed.

Ever need to leave your dog for multiple nights but your dog has anxiety and you are worried? Doggie Daycare will allow your dog to learn that the facility isn’t all that scary. By slowly letting them acclimate to being left and then picked up at the end of the day, they start to relax and enjoy themselves because they learn, no matter what, you will always come back!

It is important to know that your pet is usually required to pass a socialization interview, be spayed or neutered, and be current on vaccinations. Most facilities also require
animals be at least 4 months old and be in good health and flea and tick free. Usually proof of vaccines must be submitted before your pet's arrival. Your veterinarian can easily fax this information to the facility.
The Usual Vaccination Requirements for Dogs include:
• Rabies
• Distemper (DHPP)
• Bordetella Vaccine (Kennel Cough) within the past 6 months
• Negative fecal test result within the past 6 months
• Monthly flea and tick preventative medication
Vaccination Requirements for Cats
• Rabies
• Distemper (FVRCP)
• Negative FeLV/FIV (Feline Leukemia/AIDS) Combo Test
• Feline Leukemia (Outdoor Cats)
• Negative fecal test result within the past 6 months
• Monthly flea and tick preventative medication


The positive changes you will see in your dog will amaze you. While they might start out shy and not too keen about it, before you know it, they will be dragging you through the front door because they can’t wait to start playing!
