Doggie Water Park

Our brand-new doggie water park is now open! Does your dog love to splash or swim? Do they adore the garden hose or sprinkler? For many dogs, there’s nothing more fun than splashing around. Our H2O Fido water park is a one-of-a-kind play experience that keeps dogs cool while they have a blast in fresh, clean water. Paw-shaped splash pads, water jets, wading pools and sprinklers make this the most fun place for your dog!

More Than a Good Time

Doggie daycare is a special place designed to entertain and supervise your dog while you’re away. While it’s incredibly fun and stimulating, daycare offers additional benefits that enrich your dog’s life (and yours).

Exercise

The most common illness in dogs today is obesity. Unfortunately, many pet parents don’t have quite enough time to ensure their pet gets the ideal amount of exercise every day. At daycare, you can ensure your pet’s getting plenty of exercise and having lots of fun doing it, all while you’re at work or running errands. By the end of the day you’ll have a tuckered-out and happy dog ready for relaxing downtime and cuddles with the family.

Socialization

Dogs are naturally social thanks to their pack animal ancestry. Being around other dogs satisfies this inherent craving, and daycare is a safe and structured place for dogs to make friends with other social dogs. Plus, dogs need to interact with other dogs to learn good doggie social skills, which can improve your pet’s confidence and sense of self.

Mental Satisfaction

Just like humans, dogs can get bored when they have little to do. This can lead to common behavior challenges such as excessive barking or howling, destroying your belongings, or leaving “presents” in the house. Dog daycare provides a place for pets to expend their energy in constructive ways so they can have a satisfying and enriching day.

Safer Than Other Options

In this day and age, pet parents have more options for pet care than ever, but dog daycare is the safest option available for a number of reasons. It’s a specifically designed for dogs to play and have fun together under the supervision and care of highly trained professionals. All dogs in our daycare are fully vaccinated and screened for social compatibility. Additionally, it’s out of your home—so no need to give strangers the key to your house.
