Daycare

Do you have a bored pooch sitting at home alone, while you are away at work? Why not drop him off at The Paw? We will keep him busy and feeling special in doggie daycare! 

Allowing your dog to socialize with other dogs is one of the greatest gifts you can give your pet. They love romping and playing with other fury friends. It is a great way for them to get the exercise and stimulation that they need; while you are away at work or doing errands. It is good for both their physical and mental health! They will be better able to relax with you at the end of their busy day!

What makes daycare at The Paw unique to our area:

Our off-leash playgroups are  focused on fun and the well being of your dog.   We are committed to understanding group dog behavior and educating our staff on safe and humane management techniques.  Our staff memebrs all complete an intensive group-play training course, developed by The Dog Gurus.

We carefully separate dogs based on size and temperament.  You will not find a large dog in a play group with a small dog.  We try to keep play groups as safe as possible.  We have recently added a Tiny Tots play group for our littlest of friends, 12lbs and under!  Tiny Tot daycare is now only $15.00 a day!!!  For more information regarding why The Paw keeps small and large dogs apart please click here.

The Paw also provides rest periods during the day.  Break periods are critical to maintaining stress-free, calm dogs in play groups.  The average dog requires 17 hours of rest.  Rest and relaxation are important for the management of biological and emotional states, as it allows the body to recover from releases of stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol.  The levels of these hormones can become abnormal if the dog is denied sufficient time to rest and recover.  Dogs suffering from rest deprivation are more likely to overreact and behave impulsively.  The goal is not to exhaust your dog, but to teach him or her that it is okay to socialize with buddies and periodically take breaks.  It teaches dogs impulse control and also helps puppies/dogs build better strength in waiting for potty time; rather than allowing them to go when ever and where ever they choose.  The Paw has kennels which allow dogs to feel safe in their "den" away from other dogs to rest and regenerate.  

Our play yard includes 40,000 square feet of artificial turf, 5,400 square feet indoor play yards, high traction rubber floors to ensure safety, and 100% staff supervised playtime. You can observe your dog on our website by viewing our web cams, and we post pictures of them on Facebook regularly.
