What is Dog Daycare at Paws Pet Resort & Spa Like?

In our Dog Daycare program, playgroups are chosen based on age, size, activity level and temperament. If a dog prefers one-on-one play, they’ll receive custom play sessions with a human buddy. Each session includes play time, obedience reinforcement, use of puppy playground equipment, fresh air in the outdoors, lots of positive reinforcement with hands-on praise, and finally, a nap in their own comfortable private room!

When not at play, each pet relaxes in their own comfortable, private suite with tempered glass doors. Your dog will jump for joy in our indoor 3,000+ square foot canine gymnasium, or in one of the outdoor play yards during supervised playtime in groups or on an individual basis!

Custom Daycare

Pups who prefer human playmates get all the attention and playtime they deserve in our Custom Daycare program. Custom play includes one-on-one attention from a caregiver doing whatever your dog likes most, whether it’s fetch, a walk around the yard, or belly rubs in the sunshine.

Enrichment Daycare

This special program is perfect for highly motivated and active dogs! In addition to a fun-filled day of group play, each pup enjoys an enrichment activity. Enrichment activities can include group games, custom playtime, trick training, agility games, and more.

Puppy Daycare

Our puppy daycare program offers curious pups a safe and supervised place to play, explore their surroundings, and exercise their social skills. Puppies play in small group with other youngsters on a schedule designed for puppies. More frequent and shorter playtimes ensure puppies get the perfect balance of fun and rest.

Customer Experiences

The people who work at Paws are the most amazing, giving and loving employees. My dogs cannot wait to get there for daycare. And when I pick them up at the end of the day, I am greeted by friendly, nice and informative Paws employees, and by my very happy dogs!! I drive from Avon to Cheshire to utilize Paws. There are many choices much closer to my home, but I’ll gladly do the drive to stay at Paws!! Keep up the amazing job you do! Bravo!!

Dawn M

Absolutely exceptional love and care for our fur babies from Paws and the entire staff. We were hesitant and anxious on leaving our furbies for the first time, however put to ease as the stay days progressed. Very good and clear communication regarding our pups and their stay. Would highly recommend this extended family as an option for your fur baby. With appreciation on behalf of Penelope, Max and Italy

Rose R

Excellent care for our puppy! The playtime pictures that were texted to us during her stay kept our minds at ease. She had a great visit and she was just as happy when we picked her up as she was when we dropped her off! We have used them in the past with other dogs and they were awesome then too. I wouldn’t trust anyone else, the staff truly loves and cares the dogs!

Alison S-H

Harlow has been going to Paws since she was 6mo old. She will be 10 next month. While I worked she went 2-3x a week. Now she still goes when we go on vacation. As soon as we turn in the parking lot she howls. She gets so excited! It’s such a comfort knowing she loves it and she’s in good hands! I love when they send a pic of her playing while I’m away. I know she’s happy.

Robin C

First time daycare here for our dogs and it was the best experience for all of us! The resort was so nice and inviting and the staff were super nice. We felt good leaving them and the best part was the pictures of their day. We were visiting from FL and only wish we had a resort like this to bring them to on a regular basis. This place is phenomenal and highly recommended!! Thank you for taking such great care of our pups to enjoy their play date!

Diana Flynn

Every time we even mention Paws, our dogs get so excited and can’t wait to stay there. The staff are phenomenal and I never have any doubt that my two fur babies will be well taken care of at Paws. They’re always exhausted from the constant attention and playtimes they get. We truly love this facility and everyone who works there! Thank you so much for giving us the peace of mind that our pups are more than okay when we are not around! We will continue to use Paws time and time again!
