Maid Service early in the morning, then breakfast in bed. Next it's out to our fine restrooms where our guests can freshen up after breakfast. Then it's a free for all play day! Everyone is such the social canine! It's a wonderful play day and snacks and refreshments are at paws reach. If not, a bark will beckon a personal assistant.

Serving Daily

Science Diet Sensitive Stomach

If you prefer to bring your pet's own food we will gladly serve it according to your directions.


Your pet's medication can be administered at no extra fee.

During the Day

We provide two different yards for your dog to socialize in. Guests are expected to join other guests for playtime and must be socialized and cannot be aggressive. The small dogs can run and skip freely in their own yard all day for as long as they desire. The larger dogs are exercised a minimum of twice a day for 45 minutes each session. Both yards are thoughtfully laid out with ample shade and sun areas.
