  • How do evaluations work?
    • Evaluations can be scheduled M-F between 9am-2pm. One of our skilled daycare team members will greet you and your dog at your car when you check in. After some introductions and a a brief interview with our staff, we will ask you to wait in your car while we get to know your dog.
    • The whole process takes about 20 minutes, where we will engage with your dog, and see how they play with and greet with other dogs, and are introduced into the daycare room.
  • If your dog is welcomed into our pack, they will stay for the rest of the day for their first free day of daycare where they will make new friends and play games with our skilled staff!
  • We evaluate every dogs needs on an individual and personalized level, and pride ourselves on giving every dog in our pack a daycare experience that will leave them happy and excited to return!
  • In the event that your dog does not pass the Evaluation, we do offer Day Boarding services at the same cost as Day Care. Your dog will receive all of the same all inclusive pampering as our extended stay boarding dogs.

Every Dog Deserves Their Day

dog-runningDaycare dogs will play games with their referees, be challenged intellectually, play on our dog-safe playground equipment, romp in splash pools and play with mind stimulating toys, and make pals for life with fellow dogs and our amazing staff.

Doggy ice cream treats are given at pick-up to reward a great day of play!

We aren’t just a dog daycare; we are a place for your dog to play, to learn, have fun, and grow in an enriching environment.

They will be so excited to come back every day!

Additional Activies

Additional activities at dog daycare such as TLC, One-on-One play, and leash walks are available. We believe in enrichment and mental stimulation. The things that make your dog tick will bring them just as much joy as romping around with new furry friends. Talk to one of our receptionists, or one of our skilled team leaders about a customized daycare plan for your dog!

  • Our TLC add-on is especially good for elderly dogs in daycare who may need a break. While dogs will typically give themselves a rest when they are tiring, if you let us know of your dog’s special needs, we can arrange for a one-on-one break time with a caregiver. Your loved one will enjoy some individual belly rubs, brushing, petting, and all-around pampering.
  • One-on-One activity add-ons are great for dogs who are exceedingly energetic and really need the individualized attention to tire them out! Have a dog that will play fetch for hours? Sign them up for One-on-One activities and we will do just that!
  • Leash walks offer easy, gentle exercise for pets. During a leash walk, your dog will enjoy some quality time with one of our staff on a peaceful jaunt around the Villas.

Additionally, we take great care and time to get to know all of our dogs temperaments, if you haven't asked for any additional activities and we notice that your dog needs some particular kind of attention to really get them stimulated and engaged, or needs a relaxing nap with some TLC, we will do so so your dog has the best daycare day, day after day.

You may also bring lunch for your dog, and one of our referees will take them to one of our dedicated areas for lunch and a rest before they get back into the fun.

If you would also like to receive email updates with photos and report cards, these are available upon request.

About our staff

Private Training vs Behavioral Modification

Private training sessions are offered by availability during office hours.

Before our trainer starts any private lessons with you and your dog, they offer a free consultation to understand your needs and goals for training, as well as the issues you may be experiencing at home or in public.

If a Behavior Modification plan is suggested, this is done in coordination between our trainer and our veterinarians, to come up with the best course of action for your pup regardless of the issue that may exist, and a custom designed course of action will be made for tackling the specific unwanted issues at hand.

Behavior Modification approaches issues such as reactive behaviors, separation anxiety, resource guarding and beyond.
