Bring your special friend to us and we will play all day!
Thousands of pet owners work all day, and this requires leaving
your dog home while you work. Often these owners come home to a
stressed out dog, and rampant destruction, either of the house, or
the yard, and neighbors who complain of barking and howling, due to
One of the top ten reasons given at an animal shelter for owner turn-ins is "he destroys my things when I'm not home". This could be prevented so easily with either crate-training, exhaustive exercise, or daycare.
It works just like Daycare for human babies. Dropping your dog off in the morning on the way to work, and while you slave away, your pampered pooch is pampered indeed! Depending on both your dog's activity level, and the curriculum set out by the Daycare owners, he may enjoy his day by playing with other dogs, playing with people, inside or outside, or he may be the type to while away the hours ensconced on somebody's couch, getting loving attention.
Let our professionals take care of your doggies needs while you work!
Cost of Doggie Daycare
Cost can vary between $8.00 a day and $35.00 a day, depending on the provider, whether the daycare is operated out of a private home, or a fully-staffed facility.
We are a Staffed Commercial Dog Daycares
Our fully-staffed facility offers much for social dog. Often the number of dogs on a day at at our facility can be from ten to twenty dogs, all ready to make friends. Trained staff keep the dogs busy in outdoor play, or even, in some cases, happily munching snacks (healthy, of course!) watching movies made just for the entertainment of dogs. Activities might include "hide and seek", or "tag", or anything that canine minds can come up with. Staff is often trained to deal with any outbreak of aggression that might result, and also has a standing agreement with a local veterinarian should an emergency arise.
In our commercial daycare, dogs must present proof of current vaccinations, and all must be healthy, to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and parasites.
The Best Choice For Your Dog
This may be between you and your dog. Where do you feel more comfortable leaving him? Where do you feel your dog will be most comfortable and happy? Talk to the operators, and go with your instincts. If anything seems out of line, move on. You'll know by the time you pick your dog up at the end of the day that you made the right decision.

Required Pet Boarding Forms
The Master Boarding Agreement outlines the terms and conditions governing your pet's stay at the Holistic Pets. Please read it carefully and sign where indicated. Include the name of a person (an Agent who must be 18 years or older) who can act on your behalf in the event that we are unable to contact you during an emergency. An Agent may be asked to provide ID if he or she picks up the pet. If anyone other than you or an Agent comes to pick up the pet, we will not be able to release your pet without first speaking with you. If time allows, please return this pet boarding form to us in advance; otherwise, you may bring it with you to check-in.
If your pet takes any medications, vitamins, or supplements that will need to be administered during his or her stay, please complete and present the Medication form. Call ahead to make sure we accept the medication being administered. Holistic Pets does not administer injections.
All medication that accompanies the pet must be in its original container clearly stating the type of medication and the dosage. Over- the-counter (OTC) medications can only be accepted with a pet when accompanied by a veterinarian's dosage recommendation. Please note: There is an additional charge for administering medication.
Pet Assessment Form
The Pet Assessment gives us an opportunity to better understand the needs of your pet. You can describe the details of your pet’s history, health, and behaviors and in turn we can customize our care and attention to your pet while boarding at the Holistic Pets. The Holistic Pets requires that the Pet Assessment is completed at your pet’s first check-in and updated annually. You may print the Pet Assessment now, or fill one out in the Holistic Pets Lobby.
Authorization for Release of Vaccinations Form
If you need to request your pet’s vaccination information from your vet, we can help. Download our release form and ask your veterinarian to complete it. It contains all the information we require for your pet to stay with us. Then ask your veterinarian to fax it to the Holistic Pets location where your pet will be staying.
