Free Play Daycare

Both our Maxie and Shepherd locations offer our free play off leash program.  This program has three different daily groups for your pup to participate and lots of room to explore.  These three groups are separated by size, temperament, energy levels, and play styles.  This platform allows dogs to roam, play, and rest as they see fit in a larger pack of dogs than our academy program.  Dogs that are able to self-regulate their activities are best suited and get the most out of this program.  Daily health checks are done twice a day by pet professionals extensively trained in body language.  These pups also have unlimited access to our many amenities including cold plates, misters, pools, and bubble cannons!  Check out more about our amenities here!  You can watch our pups playing in free play daycare here! Dogs interested in this program must meet our requirements.

Packing Food:

To best comply with any of your pup's dietary restrictions, we encourage owners to bring their own food from home.  It is required for food to be separated and labeled upon drop off for lodging.  This allows us to save space and be as organized as possible when preparing your pup's meals.  Additionally, this allows us to catalog each meal when they are dropped off. If food is not bagged, a bagging fee will be charged at $1 per meal.

Packing Medications:
We ask that you please pack medications separately from your pup's meals. We catalog all medications, create medication cards, and organize oral medications in pill boxes. We offer pill pockets, peanut butter, and wet food to help administer medications.

We encourage parents to bring small blankets, bedding, or clothing that smell like home for their pup. These blankets go on top of provided cots. For storage reasons, we do not permit large dog beds*.

*Our Luxury suites at the Energy Corridor location can accommodate large dog beds.

Boarding Enhancers:

Enhance your pup's stay with us by adding report cards and evening snacks! 

Report Cards: These daily report cards include information about your pup's day and will include two photos! $10 per day

Evening snack: Our late night snacks offer a fun way for your pup to wind down in the evening.  Snacks can include frozen cored apples, frozen carrots, and a filled kong! $5 per night
