Here are some of the ways we can enrich your dog’s stay:

  • Group Play. If your social dog loves playing with other pups, our playgroups are a perfect fit. They’ll spend the day romping around our play yards, making new friends and enjoying the sunshine.
  • Individual Play. Some dogs simply prefer the company of humans. Our caregivers are more than happy to oblige! We offer one-on-one playtimes doing whatever your dog loves best, from fetch to resting in the sun.
  • Outdoor Walks. Does your dog jump and wag at the word “walk?” A caregiver will take your furry friend on a one-on-one leashed walk, ensuring they get plenty of exercise, healthy stimulation, and fresh air at their own pace.
  • Manners Sessions. If your pup could use a refresher in obedience and/or manners, we’ll pair them up with a highly trained caregiver for a private manners session focused on your pet’s needs.
  • Snuggle Time. Many dogs love nothing more than human attention. Your snuggly pup will enjoy belly rubs, bedtime attention and plenty of hugs to make sure they get the affection and attention they’re used to getting from you.
  • TLC. We offer a special TLC Package to our senior and special needs guests to ensure the most comfortable and rewarding stay away from home. Stretch breaks, unlimited medication administration and orthopedic bedding keep your precious pets happy and healthy.
  • Puppy Package. Just like human children, puppies need special attention and amenities. Our younger guests can enjoy extra playtimes and potty walks to keep them happy, exercised, and healthy. Plus, your pup will get to socialize with humans and other friendly dogs.
