Become a member of our K-9 family! 

Established in 2007, we have maintained a limited enrollment with a smaller group with personal attention, supervision and love! Several of our dog parent's are on their second generation with us.

It is our mission to help your family improve your dog's quality of life by providing them with a nurturing, stimulating and secure environment to enjoy while you are away from home. Providing your pooch with Daycare allows them  to be a social member of a canine family, and can help to reduce or eliminate unwanted behaviors, add to socialization skills and is beneficial exercise! A well-exercised dog is a happier, healthier, better-behaved dog! We encourage you and your canine to visit our pack!  We offer over a 1/2 acre of fenced play yard and a climate controlled daycare facility with rubber flooring, for easy on the joints while playing. 

We look forward to getting to know you and your furry friend and to assist you with all of your canine's needs. 


We require advance reservations for daycare services. Reservations may be cancelled until 6:00PM of the day prior to the reservation without charge. Cancellations on the day of the reservation must be called in before 7:30 AM to avoid being charged the daycare fee.

Reservations made, but not shown up for by 8:30 AM will be charged the full daycare fee*

We have voice mail on the weekends and after hours if cancellations need to be made outside regular business hours. In order to be fair to all clients, no exceptions will be made.
