Our Daycare Program!
We opened our Massachusetts Ave location in September 2007 to provide Arlington with an option for fun and
safe dog play. Our program is crate-free and held indoors in our small and cozy facility. Each puppy / dog is
evaluated before he is able to participate in our program - there are no exceptions to our evaluation process.
We require all of our dogs to be well-mannered, well-socialized, respectful, and friendly.
We offer Shuttle Service for residents of Arlington and surrounding areas. If you are unable to drop-off or
pick-up your dog within our hours, book our shuttle! Your pet will ride safely crated in our Ford Transit van.
We offer "Puppy Pre-School" for puppies as young as 8 weeks old for no additional charge - while your puppy
is here we work with him on crate training, housebreaking, polite leash manners, socialization with friendly
dogs, socialization with people, and common city distractions (sirens, loud noises, traffic, etc.) We work on
polite manners (not jumping on people, walking nicely on a leash, sitting politely for food and treats, etc.)
and are careful to make each new experience a positive one.
We can give your dog a full groom, nail clipping, or other grooming services during his time at daycare. We
also offer our Play & Train program! Is it your dog's birthday? Throw him a birthday party with his friends!
Daycare allows your dog to exercise and socialize while staying out of his crate during the day. He will be
able to exercise and nap here freely with all of his friends! Our program is very structured; upon arrival your
dog will play for a few hours before going on a group leashed potty break. We encourage all dogs in our care
to potty outside and require all dogs over 6 months of age to be housebroken to our facility. After morning
potty breaks, it's time for more playtime! If you provide a lunch for your dog, he will be crated for one hour
before and after mealtime to ensure proper digestion. If you do not provide a lunch for your dog, we will
provide some healthy kibble as a mid-day snack. If your dog has any special dietary restrictions we are
careful to feed only compatible treats. After snack time, the dogs usually settle down to sleep for a little
while. We don't crate any dog during nap time and they are free to nap with the group or continue playing.
Then it's playtime for the rest of the day with potty breaks offered every few hours.
March 2019: We have limited spots available for daycare. If you'd like to inquire about an evaluation for
your dog, please submit a Daycare Evaluation Form and contact us to make an appointment. We do not
accept any walk-in evaluations for daycare. Vaccinations must be verified before the evaluation - we
require adult dogs to be current on Distemper, Parvo, & Rabies with a negative fecal floatation before
the evaluation. Puppies under 6 months of age need to be current on Distemper & Parvo vaccinations
with a negative fecal flotation before the evaluation.
Daycare hours: 8:00am - 6:00pm Monday through Friday

New dogs and puppies are charged an introductory rate of $30.00 per day while they become acclimatized to our program
as they require extra attention, more frequent potty breaks, and need to familiarize themselves with our routine. Once
this introductory period is completed, the rate will be dropped to $25.00 per day.
Shuttle Service: $7.00 - $12.00 per trip, depending on location.
