Benefits of Dog Daycare

Our passionate and energetic pet care team members take the time to learn each guest’s preferences and favorite activities, making daycare a ton of fun, and supporting your dog’s mental and physical well-being in a number of ways.

1. Exercise is key to a long and happy life. Dogs thrive on exercise, and that often means more than a walk around the block. Busy pet parents can enjoy the peace of mind knowing their dog is getting all the exercise and play they crave while at Gruene Gables.
2. Mental stimulation promotes good habits. Like human children, dogs who get bored are known to invent ways to stay entertained. This can lead to chewed shoes and furniture, all-day barking marathons, holes all over the backyard, and more. Daycare gives dogs and puppies a healthy place to channel their mental energy and come home feeling fulfilled.
3. Many dogs love to socialize. It’s in their nature! Daycare gives dogs a safe and supervised environment to satisfy their craving for the company of their fellow canines. Our play yards provide lots of space to run, explore, and have fun together.

What vaccinations are required for daycare?

To keep our resort a safe and healthy place for dogs, we require proof of vaccinations. Dogs must be current on their distemper/parvo vaccine and we require rabies on an annual basis. Bordetella is required every 6 months. We also highly recommend the Canine Influenza vaccination.

Do you require reservations for daycare?
Your dog’s safety is most important to us. We maintain the best level of staffing every day, keeping our group sizes down and supervision top notch. Therefore, we do require reservations so we can plan accordingly.
My dog doesn’t like to play with other dogs, would they still enjoy daycare?
We appreciate that some dogs would rather play with people than with the “pack.” Our personal play program includes one-on-one playtime with a staff member so your pup can have tons of fun doing whatever they like most. They’ll enjoy all the fun of our play yards, pools, playground and toys while soaking up the undivided attention of a caregiver.
Can I come in for a tour?

Yes, we’d love for you to see our resort. Please visit us any time between Mon-Fri 10am-12pm or 2pm-4pm and a knowledgeable staff member will guide you on a tour.

Do you require a trial evaluation?
We keep our daycare program as safe as possible by ensuring our guests are comfortable with a social play environment. Your dog’s first day is an “introduction day,” free of charge, where we get to observe your pet’s preferred play styles and determine if they’re a good fit for one of our play groups. If your pup seems to prefer playing with the staff, we have a personal play program just for dogs like him/her.
