Daily Schedule

Day care dogs are separated into groups based on size, play style and disposition. Our trained staff members are always interacting with and tending to the dogs in each play group. Groups are never left unattended.

Weekday Smart Doggy Day Care Schedule

What should I do if the lobby is full when I come to drop off my dog in the morning?

  • Peek through the glass before entering to make sure you are not accidentally crowding into another dog’s space. Feel free to wait outside for a moment if there already 3 or 4 dogs waiting. Enter through the South door (the blue door) and exit through the North door (the black door) to prevent congestion.
  • Keep your dog(s) at your side (gather the excess leash up to keep them close) and at least 3 feet apart from other dogs. Even dogs that are wonderful friends during off-leash play can get too excited while on leash and bark or lunge at each other. It is best if we avoid leashed dog-to-dog interactions in the lobby and let them greet their friends’ off-leash in the play areas.
  • Make sure your dog is wearing proper equipment. Your dog should be wearing a working quick-release collar (and harness or head collar if he/she wears one) and a non-retractable 4-6ft leash when entering.

Smaller, playgroups of 5 or 6 dogs to warm up your dog’s mind and body.

Groups of 15-20 dogs playing in both indoor (air conditioned / heated) and outdoor (weather permitting) play areas with lots of toys.

Each group is crated for 1hr of rest time mid-day before returning to play. All dogs receive a 10 minute positive reinforcement based training session during rest time. Owner provided lunches are also fed during this time.
