DAY CARE SERVICES

We believe it is important that over the course of a day dogs are provided with a balance between time to socialize and exercise but also to relax to avoid over-stimulation and exhaustion. Our approach is intended to direct increased energy levels into safe and engaging activities and to keep dogs physically and mentally engaged. Showing affection, throwing a ball and providing individual attention over the course of the day is an important part of our responsibility.

Our large supervised private dog runs give dogs enough room to exercise. Dogs are grouped based on several criteria with size being one, but temperment being the most important. The play space can be divided into multiple play areas. No more than a dozen dogs are grouped together and there is at least one person supervising every group. Water is provided during the day as are relief walks. No more than two large dogs or three small dogs are ever walked at the same time. Dogs are also provided with periods to relax and nap in our lounge over the course of the day.

Day care is not appropriate for every dog so new dogs are temperment tested on their first visit to ensure that daycare is the appropriate environment for them. All dogs must also be up to date on their vaccinations including bordatella which must be administered every six months in accordance with Department of Health regulations.

Space is limited so reservations are required. We will not be able to take more dogs than we can care for on a given day.

Full Day

Our daycare facility is open from 7:30 am until 7:30 pm every day and dogs with us for a full day can be dropped off or picked up anytime during that time. The per diem rate for a full-day of daycare is $45 for members and $52 for non-members. In addition to a discounted per diem rate, members are also eligible to purchase either prepaid packages of ten visits which lowers the daily rate to under $40 or monthly passes which allow unlimited access for an entire month. Monthly passes can lower the daily full day rate to as little as $24 depending on frequency of use. Please call us for package pricing if interested.

Half Day

For many dogs, a half day of day care is a more suitable solution. Our half day rate includes a drop-off or pick-up for your dog and guarantees a minimum of 4 hours of playtime in our facility. (Additional costs may apply if you are outside of our service area.) If you prefer to pick-up and drop-off your dog yourself, a half day is a maximum of five hours. Half days are defined by the duration of your dog's visit and not the time of day so there are no restrictions on when you can drop off or pick up your dog. The daily cost for a half-day is $37 for members and $43 for non-members. In addition to a discounted per diem rate, members are also eligible to purchase either prepaid packages of ten visits which lowers the daily rate to under $30 or monthly passes which allow unlimited access for an entire month. Monthly passes can lower the daily full day rate to as little as $20 depending on frequency of use. Please call us for package pricing if interested.

Hourly

As a special benefit to members, we do provide care by the hour for $10 an hour. So, if you need to run some errands, go to the gym, the movies, or just need to find some quiet time for yourself, we are happy to watch your dog for you. This service is not available to non-members.
