Welcome to Dogtown Resort

Looking for a place where your pup is treated as family and receives first class care? Look no further! Dogtown Resort is an open play dog daycare, boarding, grooming and training facility. AND once a month, we sponsor an onsite vet and vaccination clinic. We ARE your one-stop shop for all of your dog’s needs!

Dog Daycare Services and More

No one likes to leave their dog at home alone, whether you don’t feel comfortable leaving them for the day or you’re going on a trip or vacation. A bored dog can escalate into mischievous and even destructive behaviors for you and your home while you’re gone.

That is why we provide fully-equipped dog daycare, boarding, grooming and dog training services. Your dog will play, get plenty of socialization and exercise in our safe and fully enclosed air-conditioned playrooms, as well as sun themselves outside and splash around in our pools. Dogtown daycare ensures safety measures by assigning dogs to a playroom based on their size, temperament and play style.

We also provide complete dog grooming and spa services. Maybe your pup is long overdue for a groom or bath. Avoid the mess and stress that bathing your dog at home can cause and bring them to our fully-equipped spa. Take advantage of our full grooming services from specialty breed cuts and styles, nail trims, ear cleanings, teeth brushing, facials and various de-shed options. You can conveniently combine a day of play and beauty, as spa time is part of several of our daycare/boarding packages.

Dogtown Resort’s services include:

Socialization Behavior Assessment (Evaluation)

If you’re planning to board your dog with us, we recommend that you bring them to our location for a visit before leaving them for a day or the weekend, so they can acclimate to our facilities and our team. Stop by or contact us to schedule an evaluation and tour, as we would love the opportunity to get to know you and your dog and show you both everything we have to offer!

On Evaluation day, it is very important to bring your dog(s) on a leash or slip lead with a collar/harness when you enter the lobby. The Evaluation includes a socialization and behavior assessment with your dog that takes 20-30 minutes with our trained evaluator. During this time, we will also show you around, address your questions and you can even watch the playroom cameras.

Evaluation includes:

  • Wellness check
  • Response to staff touch/interaction
  • Comfort level in a crate or suite which are used for rest, naptime, boarding, and feedings
  • Reaction in “open play” setting with other dogs of varying size, breed, and temperament
  • Overall social and behavior observations

Because dogs are a really big deal to us, we feel the Evaluation at Dogtown is fun for the whole family. Consider it an introduction to our open-play environment perfectly suited for your pup’s fitness and social life. In fact, don’t be surprised if your furry child meets his or her BFF while you’re here. The process is very easy and there is nothing to be nervous about at Dogtown – we just want to get to know your pup better!

NOTE: Your dog must be at least 16 weeks old with boosters and Bordetella vaccinations. Dogs older than 7 months must be spayed or neutered.

State of the Art Facility

We designed our facilities with your dog’s safety and comfort as our major priorities. Our indoor playrooms are air conditioned, climate controlled and contain HEPA filters to help minimize germs. They also have compressed rubber flooring (like the ones in gyms) that are easy on their foot pads, hips and joints. It also provides a cushioned walking surface, something that is beneficial for dogs suffering hip dysplasia, arthritis and other bone and joint conditions.

Our team consists of two vet techs, trainers and our playrooms are managed by our certified Pack Leaders to ensure your dog’s safety. Pack Leaders are dog care professionals that are trained in pet first aid and CPR. Dogtown Pack Leaders go through rigorous training in dog behavior, breed tendencies, and acceptable play styles, so they know the language of dogs and how to safely supervise a play room while ensuring your pup’s comfort. Safety is our number one priority, because dogs have to be safe before they can have fun.

We also have high-def webcams so pet parents can view their pups throughout the day. Our webcams may be accessed from your PC or smartphone but are turned off during nap time and sleepovers. Our webcams are quite addictive because you can watch your dog play, exercise, splash, swim and having fun making new friends.
