State of the Art Facility

We’ve loved watching the dogs enjoy all of the facility upgrades that we designed just for them. Many of the dogs are taking advantage of the all-day outside play spaces. We’ve also seen that dogs are happier with the increased natural light through the skylights. Fun Fact: The natural sunlight produces increased serotonin levels, truly creating happier hounds!


All our playrooms are equipped with:
– Superior staff-to-dog ratio
– Play structures
– Climbing structures
– Natural lighting through skylights
– Air conditioning and heating
– Top-of-the-line doggy beds
– Water hydration for all day fun!
