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, grain-free 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.
NOV 2018: We are currently not accepting any new daycare clients. If you'd like be on our wait list and
set up an evaluation for your dog, please fill out our 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.
