Dog Daycare

Your pup loves to play and romp around, but you may not always have the time or energy to give your dog the exercise it needs. Dogs that can enjoy daily physical activity are less stressed, happier and healthier! Being able to interact with other canines is also a great way to build social skills for pets of all ages. At The Dog Stop®, we focus on providing your furry friend with 4 spacious indoor and outdoor play areas. We also have a private playroom and yard for those dogs that love their humans but may not play well with other dogs. All are supervised at all times by a canine companion.

Our dog daycare is separated by age, play style, energy level and size, so your pup will enjoy a playgroup that feels custom made! Our dogs are provided with structured activities, such as games, puzzle time, and one-on-one time if requested. Pups also have the option to lay down and relax for a lunch break at parents’ request. We offer a full Dog Stop Delights menu for treats, toys, and activities to enjoy during their downtime. It’s our goal to ensure that all dogs are stimulated both mentally and physically while in our care.

We do not require reservations for daycare which gives you all the flexibility you need!

Joe Farley

Joe has 18 years of professional grooming experience. He has served a large, diverse and high profile clientele in the U.S. and Canada. He got started in the business at a premier salon in Toronto before relocating to the US in 2015. After working in a few other shops in the Columbus area, Joe came to his forever home at The Dog Stop in the Fall of 2021, bringing with him a lot of dedicated dog parents.

Joe prides himself in his combined passion and artistic eye with his professionalism and personal level of care for every client.

Amber Fievet

Amber came us to via a circuitous route, ironically through horses. At 6 years old, she took a horseback riding lesson and was hooked. She attended Otterbein University, while working as a vet assistant and graduated with a degree in Equine Pre Vet with the intention of vet school. She reconsidered after evaluating the long-term financial investment and instead started as an apprentice at a grooming salon in 2015.

This proved to be the perfect fit to fuel her artistic talent and love for animals! Amber joined the team in the spring of 2022 and has developed an incredible following. In her free time, she rides her horseKitty and hikes with her dog Seamus.

Puppy Preschool (puppies 8-16 weeks)             6-week group class

This class is a combination of socialization, basic training, and confidence building to provide your puppy with the tools to grow into a confident, well-behaved adult dog who loves to train and learn!

Pawsitive Foundations Level One                       6-week group class

This class is designed to help dog owners establish a strong foundation for training their dogs using positive reinforcement-based methods. This course combines the group class experience with individualized coaching designed to meet the specific needs of both the owner and their dog.

Curriculum includes:

  • Basic cues such as sit, down, and offering eye contact within a variety of contexts
  • Leash walking skills
  • Exercises designed to improve impulse control
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Confidence-building activities

These exercises will provide you with the tools to create a well-mannered and well-adjusted canine companion as well as to strengthen the bond between you and your dog.

Pawsitive Foundations Level Two                   6-week group class

This class is designed to continue building upon the skills learned in Pawsitive Foundations Level 1 by increasing the level of distance, duration, and distraction. The goal is to take these learned behaviors and transition them from the classroom setting to the real world. We’ll also introduce more advanced training exercises through various shaping and capturing exercises.

Building Confidence                                            4-week group class

The goal of this class is to provide a structured and supportive environment for sensitive or fearful dogs to increase their confidence both in the home and the real world. Through various training exercises and games, we’ll work together to help your dog blossom and become more confident with new people, stimuli, and environments.

Reactivity Desensitization                                 5-week group class

The goal of this class is to provide a structured and supportive environment for both dogs and their owners to work on leash-reactive behaviors through counter-conditioning and desensitization techniques. With patience, consistency, and positive reinforcement techniques, we’ll work together to teach your dog to cope with triggers more effectively, leading to improved behavior and a more enjoyable walking experience for both the dog and their handler.
