A Healthy, Balanced Day

At Enrichment Dog Day Care, we offer a well-rounded mix of play, exercise, socialization, education, relaxation, and tender loving care.

  • Play, Exercise, and Socialization: Engaging in physical activity is crucial for your dog’s well-being, helping them maintain a healthy weight and muscle strength while boosting their mood and providing an outlet for their energy, both physical and mental. This translates to a more relaxed demeanor at home.
  • Rest: Amidst play and socialization, allowing dogs time to rest, unwind, and recharge is essential for their overall health, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Our daily schedule is designed to prevent excessive stimulation, fostering a healthy balance between rest, play, and learning.
  • Learning: Dogs are constant learners, observing and absorbing information from humans and fellow canines. With our guidance, dogs teach each other appropriate social behaviors. Our trained staff employs positive reinforcement techniques to encourage safe play and support your dog in practicing healthy social interactions during their time at daycare.
  • Affection: Your dog becomes part of our extended family, receiving the love and attention they deserve while you’re apart. We forge a bond with your dog to instill a sense of comfort and confidence.

Commitment to Safety

Ensuring the safety and welfare of our guests is our top concern. As fellow dog parents, we value each dog as if they were our own. Our dedication lies in maintaining a secure and healthy environment for all who step into our facility.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to bring bedding, toys, or treats for my dog?

Nope! We got you covered! Most dogs will not need any bedding for a single day of day care. If your dog is boarding with us, see our Sleepover Guidelines. As far as treats and toys, we have plenty! Please ask about which toy and treat products are available.

What’s a Behavior Assessment and why is it important?

As part of joining the Central Bark® family, our expert staff conducts a thorough behavior assessment at your local Central Bark store. These assessments help ensure that your dog is placed with a playgroup they’re comfortable with so they can play safely every day they’re with us.

This four-day evaluation, while your dog participates in our Enrichment Day Care, assesses your dog’s:

  • Comfort and social skills with people 
  • Social skills and playstyle with other dogs to help determine the playgroup and play schedule they can benefit from the most
  • Comfort in both indoor and outdoor play spaces
  • Comfort in rest areas and a crate 
  • Ability to share resources like water and toys in social settings
  • Level of comfort taking treats in social settings

This process gives us a chance to get to know you and your dog while your dog gets acquainted with their new favorite place away from home. Through the entire four days, your dog’s comfort and safety is our top priority.

Once your pup passes all the behavior assessment elements, you are welcome to sign up for any of our daycare services or a sleepover!

To schedule a Behavior Assessment for your dog, please contact your local store.

NOTEPlease bring all required signed forms, vaccination proof, and a collar and leash for your behavior assessment.

Why choose doggy day care for your dog?

There’s no bond like the one between our furry best friends and us. We love our dogs and want to give them the best life possible. But it can be challenging to fulfill all their needs to stay healthy and happy for a lifetime. Doggy day care gives pups a place to play and learn in a safe environment, with the socialization, mental stimulation, and physical exercise their minds and bodies need to stay healthy for a lifetime. 

  • Dogs get to socialize. Dogs are social creatures. Positive experiences with new humans, new dogs, and new environments are essential to a well-rounded pup.
  • Dogs learn social skills. Dogs learn from other dogs – they’re always teaching each other what is (and isn’t) appropriate social behavior. Doggy day care staff can also help support safe play and practice healthy social behaviors.
  • Dogs get more exercise. Exercise helps your dog maintain a healthy weight and muscle tone while improving their mood and providing a healthy outlet for their physical and mental energy, meaning they can be more relaxed at home.  
  • Dogs get human attention. Your dog will get the care and love they need while you’re at work or school.  
  • Parents get a break. Doggy day care can give you a day off from responsibilities, while your dog gets what they need to be a healthier, more well-adjusted pet.
