Day Boarding and Puppy Daycare:
We are now accepting enrollment for puppy daycare and day boarding. This is a daily service where we take care of your pet while you are away throughout the day. Your pet will be walked several times a day and if passes our temperament testing can be included in group play at your request.
If you elect to allow your pet to be included in group play, please acknowledge that sometimes, just like kids, they can get dirty, have bumps and bruises, and occasionally receive bite wounds. We make every effort to minimize issues by having a trained staff member present at all times, temperament testing all dogs, and keeping similar sized pets together.
