Doggy Daycare

Our Doggy Daycare is a wonderful place for your dog to play while you're away! The Puppy Playground is a cage-free exercise room where dogs of all shapes and sizes come to exercise and socialize with other dogs. It is a great way to keep your dog happy and healthy while you're at work or running your errands. Instead of chewing up your couch, they can come play fetch with our amazing Pet Resort Staff!

All dogs must pass a temperament test prior to being admitted into the Puppy Playground. This ensures not only the safety of every dog, as well our staff, but lets us know exactly how to make sure your dog enjoys their stay and is not stressed. It also allows the staff to put the dogs in cohesive groups where they can play freely without any anxiety or stress.

The safety and well-being of every pet are a priority at the Puppy Playground. Which is why every dog is required to be current on all vaccinations and free from parasites.

Not to mention, the Pet Resort staff are trained to identify any potential medical conditions that may arise and will alert the attending veterinarian.

We offer discounted daycare packages and have half-day options in case you just need to have your furry friend stay for a just a few hours.

To schedule a temperament evaluation, you will need to fill out a Personality Profile. You can download the form here. Please have the form filled out prior to the evaluation.

  • DAPP (Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus) vaccine current
