PLEASE NOTE, FOR SAFETY REASONS, LEASHES ARE MANDATORY WHEN ENTERING AND EXITING THE BUILDING AND WHILE IN THE LOBBY. MAKE SURE YOUR DOG IS ON A LEASH BEFORE THEY GET OUT OF THE CAR AND YOU HAVE CONTROL. LOCK YOUR FLEXI/RETRACTABLE LEADS SHORT.
WARM FUZZY WELCOME to our Daycare Center! Enjoy indoor and outdoor playgrounds all year long. Dogs are divided into small groups using a combination of temperament and size. You will never see overcrowding in our facility. There are 3 groups to choose from. Members of these groups change throughout the day as new personalities come and go. Check out this video that gives you a little insight into how dogs prefer to interact and the role that daycare plays. Which one suits your furry friend?
The Gym is for dogs with high energy levels who can run with the big kids. There will be lots of athletics including running, jumping, wrestling and other things really active dogs love to do.
The Playpen is for puppies and small dogs who aren’t quite ready to run with the big kids. They may be a little too timid or fragile to thrive with the athletes but want to have some fun with friends like themselves.
And for every dog…
The Lanais is a calm and quiet place. Your dog will truly enjoy this very home-like space. They can get a pedicure or have a snack and take a nap in their own, personal den. The Lanais is also where older, special needs or post-surgical dogs can relax. They can spend the day just chilling out instead of being home alone or in an active play group. Studies show that time in a room like this for part of every day does wonders for your dog. Check out this article about how much sleep dogs really need. Quiet time is definitely a part of our day here at the PETiculars Daycare Center.
Water is available at all times, in every area. If your dog requires a meal while here, they will be fed separately on the Lanais at no additional charge. We will follow up the meal with a nap so there’s time to digest before more playing.
***WINTER WONDERHOUND INDOOR PLAYGROUND***
From December 1 through March 31, the daycare center will be transformed into an indoor dog park on Sundays from 1-3. Continue to enjoy the camaraderie you love at your regular dog park while staying cozy and warm. You do not have to be a regular daycare client to take advantage of the indoor dog park. If you are not on file as a client, please fill out the new client application and sign the waiver before bringing your dog. They must be current on rabies. There will be no attendant other than at the front desk to check you in. Use of the facility is at your own risk. The $10 pay as you go fee includes use of both indoor spaces, the outdoor fenced area, poo bags, cleaning supplies and the restroom. If you would like to save $30, the membership fee of $150 includes all 18 Sundays. The retail area and pedicure station will be open.
Ready to book your dates? Start by filling out the New Client Application and signing the General Liability Waiver here.
Want a tour? No problem. You are welcome to stop in anytime and check us out. We do allow you into the playgrounds with the dogs but you will be jumped on, get dirty and possibly even wet so it’s at your own risk. You can always just peek through the fencing. We are proud to use local vendors whenever possible. All of our art and furniture was purchased from local non-profits like Habitat For Humanity and The Salvation Army. The vinyl fencing and gates were purchased from Pro Fence . Our plants were purchased from Green Spot Garden Center. Shopping local and giving back is something we feel very strongly about.
Not sure your dog is a good candidate for the Daycare Center? Aggression is the one thing that would disqualify a dog from daycare. Females in heat should stay home for a few weeks. Excessive, loud, manic barking indicates an unhappy dog that does not belong in daycare. Otherwise, we’ll give it a try and if your dog shows behavior that is a concern to the staff, we will discuss it with you. If it is decided that daycare isn’t the best fit for your dog, there is always pet sitting or dog walking. We’re happy to provide services for them at home. Their comfort and happiness is our first priority.
* The Daycare Center is a non-smoking facility.
