Our State-of-the-art Dog Daycare Facility Offers Both Indoor and Outdoor Fun!

K9 Grass™ covers our 2200 sq. ft., dog daycare play areas. Designed specifically for use by dogs, it’s easier on their paws than concrete. Its knitted mesh backing with flow-through™ technology assures the best drainage possible. An antimicrobial incorporated into the grass blades reduces the growth of microorganisms and the development of odor.

With an eye to the best in sanitation, we installed a Spray Master Technologies (SMT) system. This system along with the K9 Grass™ and our stainless steel Trench Drain system and proper ventilation gives us the cleanest, safest, and most odor-free environment possible.

Our 24/7 on site care team is carefully trained in dog behavior, safety, CPR and health management. They not only ensure that your fur baby is safe, but well cared for and loved with lots of individual attention.
