A Healthy Balanced Day

Our Enrichment Doggy Day Care offers an exceptional combination of activities to ensure your dog’s holistic well-being. Recognizing each dog’s uniqueness, we customize their day to meet their needs and preferences. Our goal is to nurture their bodies, minds, and senses, allowing you to enjoy a healthy, happy, calm, and well-rounded dog at home.

  • Play, Exercise, and Socialization: Regular exercise is vital for your dog’s physical health, weight management, and muscle tone. It also enhances their mood and provides an outlet for mental and physical energy, resulting in a more relaxed demeanor at home. Positive experiences with humans, other dogs, and various environments contribute to developing well-rounded and socially adept dogs. Our safe and engaging indoor and outdoor areas offer small and large playgroups.
  • Rest: Just like humans, dogs require ample rest and relaxation to maintain their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Our carefully designed daily schedule prevents overstimulation and ensures a harmonious day for your dog by achieving the perfect balance of rest, play, and learning.
  • Learning: Dogs learn not only from humans but also from their interactions with other dogs. Under our guidance, dogs teach each other appropriate social behaviors, fostering healthy play and interaction. Our highly trained staff utilizes positive training techniques to ensure a safe space and helps your dog practice positive social behaviors during day care.
  • Love: When your dog becomes part of our Enrichment Doggy Day Care, they become a cherished family member. We provide all the love and attention they need while you’re away, creating a bond that helps them feel comfortable and confident.

Commitment to Safety

Our #1 priority is the safety and well-being of our guests. As dog parents ourselves, we take great pride in treating every dog as our own. And we are committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for everyone that enters our facility.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
