Why we love daycare


Daycare gives your dog a chance to have fun with his four-legged pals while you’re off doing important human stuff. Well-socialized dogs are more likely to get along with other dogs and people, and you can feel comfortable taking them out or having company because you know they’ll behave.


Even the best dog can have an accident if you ask him to hold it for too long. As your dog ages, it may become difficult for him to wait for you to get home for his potty break.

Puppies need more frequent breaks as well (see our Puppy Playschool page), while their tiny systems work up toward being able to hold it for longer periods of time. Arranging for daycare on those long workdays (plus the monster commutes) means you can save your road rage for another time, because you don’t have to be in a frenzy to get home and let the dog out to potty.

Ready to Join the Pack?

We ask that the dog be left with us for a full day on their first visit, in order to give us plenty of time to integrate them into the playgroups at whatever pace they are comfortable with.  It is very important that this process not be rushed, so as to give your dog a great experience and first impression to pack play. This time also helps our Pack Leaders get to know your dog and determine which playgroups he will enjoy most. Think of it as a meet and greet!

Advance bookings are required for the first day, and drop-offs are scheduled between 6:30am-9am Monday to Thursday. Once your dog is “in,” he can come anytime you like!

Keep in mind that dogs who show aggression toward humans or other dogs will not be admitted to daycare. The safety of our people and your dogs are our highest priority!

Get Hideawasted!

After playing all day with friends, it’s likely your dog will be pretty worn out! If he goes home and crashes on the couch until the next day, don’t worry!

Dogs normally sleep 18-20 hours a day, so even if he isn’t actively playing at daycare the whole day, he’s still awake a lot more than he is at home, and being tired after all that stimulation is okay!

Our pet parents like to say their dogs are “Hideawasted” and love to share pics of their pups in full hangover mode!
