Why Daycare?

The main benefit of bringing your dog to daycare is to help them socialize with other dogs and make friends. Together your dogs can spend all day with their new friends wrestling, playing tag or just having some good old doggy fun!

We have a 10,000+ sq. ft.  comfortable, safe, clean and stimulating environment for our guests. The heated and air conditioned daycare facility was designed with your dog's health and comfort in mind. Your dog’s day is structured with play and entertainment. Our well trained dog loving staff oversees your pets’ entire day and provides constant supervision for the safety of all our guests. Our yard is covered in Astro Turf to ensure that the yard is always sanitized and free of little objects that your dog could ingest.


In order for your dog to join all the daycare fun they must meet the following requirements:

  • Complete free evaluation day

  • Be at least 4 months of age

  • Any dog over 6 months must be neutered/spayed

  • All dogs must be on a flea/tick preventative

  • All dogs must be up-to-date with Rabies, Bordetella, Influenza (H3N2 & H3N8) and Distemper

  • All dogs are required to wear a 'quick release' collar

  • All dogs must be in good health

  • All dogs must have a current town license on file and be renewed yearly

  • Rabies certificates must be on file

  • Guests housed together need a permission note on file

  • Medications must be presented in their original prescription bottle


While our daycare offers socialization and fun for each dog, there are many other benefits that you and your dog will receive by being a part of our daycare yard. No longer will you have to feel the guilt of looking at your pup's sad face as you leave for work in the morning. Just bring them to daycare before you head out for the day, and you can work easy knowing your dog is occupied and happy. Not only will your pet be preoccupied, but they will be getting a ton of exercise as well. Our dogs are constantly running around in daycare. This is not just a place to keep your dogs while you are gone, but a good alternative to a walk or playtime at the park while you are at work. This keeps overweight dogs in shape, and young, fit dogs in peak physical condition.

People often forget that dogs are pack animals by nature and they do benefit greatly by socializing in a pack. Our daycare yard provides a place for your pups to explore their natural instincts in a safe and controlled environment. Dogs cannot act completely naturally with other dogs while they are on a leash. They are confined in their movement and can feel the emotions of their owner through the leash. In daycare, your pup will not be worried about how you are doing or if they need to protect you. Your dogs have a free space where they can act carefree and give into their natural and basic tendencies as a dog.

A lot of dogs also suffer from separation anxiety or they get naughty when left with too much free time. Daycare solves both problems, allowing your dog to work through its anxiety with playtime and other distractions. The same thing applies for the chewers and biters that ruin your house while you are gone. All they need is a distraction and outlet for their energy and they will come home at the end of the day like a perfect pup.
