Doggie Daycare Rates

We are an open concept, cage free doggie daycare with overnight kennel boarding. The daycare / boarding facility has been designed to be safe, clean and fun with lots of room indoors to romp, play, socialize, sleep or just be on their own. Daycare is separate by playgroups based on age, size, and breed. The end result is one happy (+tired!) pup at the end of the day.

Medical Care

If your dog needs medical care during his or her stay, we will be sure to contact you as soon as possible. In the case of an emergency, we may have to make medical decisions on your behalf. The owner takes responsibility for all medical costs associated with their dog.

Common Injuries

Dogs will be dogs. While it is rare, bites and scratches from playing will happen every now and then. We are careful to break up play before it becomes too rough. We have an on-site Dog First Aid kit that can be use to address most issues, and it is mandatory that all scratches, no matter how big or small, are reported to the owner before the dog goes home.
