A typical day at playcare

Dogs are checked in, their belongings stored in their cubbies, and they wait in their individual “rooms” for play to begin.

- Morning Activities
Dogs socialize and play with their friends!
- 12:00pm – 2:00pm:
- Nap Time
Yes, they actually rest! This time is also reserved for mental stimulation games. This is important quiet time, as they have had a very active morning and need to unwind and relax. Peanut butter-filled Kong toys are available at an extra charge for mental stimulation during this time.

More ball-fetching, chasing games and group play.

Slow-paced play for later pick ups.

Late night potty and last romp with their buddies before getting tucked in to recharge for the next day of play!

Love, kisses and cuddling! Each dog is tucked in with his or her own iCalmDog music player that plays four hours of Through A Dog’s Ear music, clinically demonstrated to calm canines.
