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.

Just a short note to thank you for taking such good care of Eve when she has stayed with you and come in for grooming. I was very impressed that Eve’s rugs and blankets were all washed when I came to pick her up. I know you all take great care of her, because she jumps out of the car and runs up to the doors as soon as I pull up.
