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 a spacious indoor/outdoor play area that is 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 of our guests are stimulated both mentally and physically while in our care.

thePlus, did we mention our SPLASH PARK? Maybe it’s because we’re saving the best for last. It’s 2,000 square fee of watery fun, with a gushing tennis ball, to a sprinkling fire hydrant and much more! We use 100% fresh water with no chemicals. The splash park is fully enclosed and supervised at all times. Whether you’re looking to enhance your dog’s stay with us, or to cool them off on a hot summer day, they’re sure to have lots of fun.
