Just because you can’t be with your dog all the time doesn’t mean she has to be left at home alone. At doggie playcare, your dog will get plenty of exercise while socializing with other furry friends in a safe, supervised setting. And no more chewing up the furniture, accidents on the carpet, or incessant barking from being lonely and bored at home!

We organize our daycare and boarding dogs into playgroups, based on our individualized assessment of size, temperament, activity level, etc., so that they spend their time with other dogs and staff members who create the kind of experience that is best for your pet’s unique needs. Dogs are instinctively pack animals, so they naturally acclimate to being part of a group, and as domesticated animals they thrive on the active attention and play provided by our caring staff. If your dog were capable of telling you he “had a great time,” that’s the type of experience we provide at The Animal House.
Our play areas have a playground-like atmosphere, including furnishings you might find on an actual playground, as well as toys that your dog can chase, chew, tug and toss around just as they would at home. Our staff provides not only constant supervision, but also human playmates who interact with the dogs throughout the day. When your pet decides it’s time for a rest, they can easily find a spot where they can curl up and take it easy for a while.
Since most dogs spend the majority of their time indoors, we designed our facility to provide the kind of secure, climate-controlled space that they’re used to. Our daycare dogs spend their days protected from the elements in our 6200 square foot facility. And when the need arises, they visit the 600 square foot “potty area” that’s attached to the building. This area is also totally enclosed and ventilated, with continuously freshened wood chips on a concrete floor. With all playgroups visiting the potty area on a rotating basis, your dog gets 10-15 potty breaks per day.
During your pet’s stay, we will administer medications per your instructions (sorry, we can’t monitor blood sugar levels, so are unable to administer insulin). If it will make them more comfortable to have a blanket or article of clothing with your scent on it, feel free to leave that with them as well. We want you to be completely assured that your pet is being cared for in a loving attentive manner, as close as possible to the care you give them at home.
