THE PETICULARS DOGGY DAYCARE CENTER
WARM FUZZY WELCOME to our Doggy 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 and we adhere to the industry suggested guideline of no more than 15 dogs to one attendant. There are 3 groups to choose from. Members of these groups change throughout the day as new personalities come and go. 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. *Maximum group size is 15.
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. *Maximum group size is 10.
And for every dog…
The Lanai is a calm and quiet place. Your dog will truly enjoy this very home-like space. They can get a pedicure or enjoy Naps N Snacks in their own, personal den. The Lanai 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. *Maximum group size for boarding dogs is 5.
Sometimes, there is only one group of no more than 30 dogs because they all do well together. They have access to all play areas. This is the maximum number of dogs we will take and there will be 2 attendants for a group this size. We encourage you to compare this with other facilities in order to make an educated decision about what you think is best for your pup. Some dogs have personalities that require a much bigger facility and we understand that need. There are many excellent doggy daycares on the Cape so you do have choices. But, we hope you choose us!
*We will accommodate “emergencies” on a case by case basis.
Water is available at all times, in every area. If your dog requires a meal while here, they will be fed separately on the Lanai at no additional charge.

Want a tour? No problem. You are welcome to make an appointment to 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. 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 of any kind would disqualify a dog from daycare. Females in heat should stay home for a few weeks. Manic barking or excessive humping indicates a frustrated or 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***
