DAYCare

Our expertly trained play coaches are on hand to provide a safe, fun experience, including games and exercises.  While your dog will be having fun, they will also be learning social skills. Dogs are always supervised and never left alone. Great Woofs offers 10,000 square feet of indoor play space and 14,000 square feet of outdoor space. Our large outdoor yard is Turfed. We offer three separate indoor play areas to accommodate different sizes and personalities.  With eco-friendly rubber flooring in each play area, that is not only comfy for your dog, but it also reduces injuries because of the excellent traction it provides. We use a water filtration system so the dogs can enjoy fresh, filtered drinking water.

OVERNIGHT

At Great Woofs we believe that when you go on vacation your dog should too!  After a day of fun with friends, we will lovingly prepare your pup's dinner.  Dietary needs and special requests are no problem.  We are here to make your dog feel like royalty.  When it’s time for bed your fur baby will enjoy our turn down service.  A treat on their pillow, bedding lightly misted with lavender essential oils, as well as being diffused throughout the air for a calming, relaxing environment. Himalayan Salt Lamps bring balance, air quality and good energy while your pup sleeps. Canine lullabies will be playing in the background as your dog drifts off to sleep in one of our spacious suites dreaming of all the fun they had that day and of more to come tomorrow.

Overnight stays are provided for our daycare dogs only. Please call or email for availabilty and details.

 Daycare dogs must attend daycare at least four times a month for 3 months in order to stay for overnights.

Date Of Review: Jan 08, 2019 Coco has been getting fabulous care from Lori, Renee and all the staff at Great Woofs for almost two years. From daycare, to grooming, to boarding the care is exceptional! Fun, safe, learning environment that challenges pups and allows them to grow! Excellent indoor facilities and the outside areas are awesome - filled with ever changing challenges and experiences - and the dogs are out there the majority of the time - second family!! I cannot recommend more highly!
