What is Playcare? 

Playcare Basics

Doggie Playcare is our daily Monday through Friday program that offers socialized doggies a chance to play in a larger group setting.

• Monday through Friday, our attendants are here from 7:00am to 6:00pm.

• During this time our handlers work with the doggies on basic manners and behaviors such as sit and stay at doorways.

• Weather permitting, Playcare rotates between our outdoor turfed area to our indoor, climate control areas where doggies can enjoy their day accompanied by their furry friends on our doggie play safe equipment.

• Toys and activities are prepared for the group on a daily basis and are based on the doggies attending.

• Activities prepared include but are not limited to: bubble games, tug of war, fetch, tag and more. We use different sized toys to suit doggies of all sizes and types of play.

Playcare – More Details

Paws & Claws Playcare was established to help owners find a positive outlet for their doggie’s energy and to provide a safe and positive environment for dogs to socialize and interact.

• At Paws & Claws Playcare, your pup will spend the day playing with other dogs, or just relaxing in our climate-controlled play areas socializing with dogs of a similar temperament. Not to mention they receive all the physical and mental stimulation that a dog could possibly need!

• A tired dog is not always properly stimulated. Our staff has been trained to give your dog the proper stimulation that includes both physical and mental activities.

• Rest periods are offered on a case by case, as needed basis.

• We customize each doggie's groups and activities so that they get more stimulation in 20 minutes than they would in a regular four-hour period of constant group play.

• During rest periods each camper will get their own area to relax in and learn that quiet time is ok.

• Doggies will also learn door and gate boundaries which will help with basic training and teach them to not rush through doorways.

The energy your fur kid will exert during the day playing at doggie daycare translates to a more relaxed dog instead of a dog dealing with frustration or boredom.

Most importantly, you don't have to deal with the guilt of leaving them home all day alone, or the guilt of missing their regular walk because you returned home late or were just too tired from your busy day.

When the day is over owners can rest assured that they are taking home a satisfied and content dog, and this makes both of you happy!
