Do you need to go away for a few days but are not sure what to do with your canine companion? Many dog owners dislike the thought of leaving their dog in a traditional kennel. It is a strange place with minimal interaction with people and other dogs.
Dog-Gone Fun offers an alternative to traditional boarding.
Our overnight guests are automatically a part of our daycare environment. They will play and romp in our recreation areas all day with our staff and their canine buddies. Dogs are split into play groups according to size and play style.
All dogs receive a formal “quiet time” between 12-2:00 p.m. but are welcome to take an extra afternoon snooze on the couch if they choose!
When all our guests have spent their energy for the day, it is close to dinnertime at 5:30 p.m. From 5:30-6:00 p.m., all dogs enjoy a few after dinner stories and play. Yes, we actually tell the dogs stories. They love to listen! At 6 p.m. it is lights out at Dog-Gone Fun and all the dogs welcome the solitude of their personal kennels. We return at 9 p.m. for a potty break and the dogs are nestled in for the night.
Our Facility is secured by a monitored security system to keep your dog safe throughout the night. We also have a private web cam system that allows us to monitor all the dogs throughout the night. In the morning, it is up for breakfast and some more playtime.
NEW Enrichment Program and Activities
Does your dog need just a little more than dog to dog play during his day of daycare? Are you going on vacation and want your dog to have a little extra personal time engaging in some extracurricular activities? The Dog-Gone Fun enrichment program is the perfect solution!
Dogs who would benefit from our enrichment program.
Puppies– Puppies can benefit from our obedience sessions by reinforcing good manners and brushing up on simple obedience skills. They can take advantage of environmental socialization with nature walk and simple obstacle courses to help their developing social skills
Intense and intelligent dogs – Some dogs may become bored in a normal daycare scenario and can benefit from more mental and physical stimulation.
Shy and People oriented dogs– Shy dogs may open up and relax when given one-on-one attention with a human and become more comfortable in the Dog-Gone Fun environment.
Enrichment sessions are 20 minutes in length. Your dog will leave his playgroup and engage in an activity of your choice with one of our trainers. He will then return settled and ready to resume playing.
Cost $15.00 for one session per day. Enrichment offered Monday through Saturday.
Reservation must be scheduled a minimum of 24 hours in advance for any session, except Saturday.
