a dog with two tails (daycare)

Why Play?

Dogs are social creatures by nature and thrive on interaction with other dogs and/or people. Dogs that spend 7–10 hours a day alone become depressed, lethargic and destructive due to boredom. Some dogs can suffer severe separation anxiety when left alone and daycare helps alleviate this problem. Dogs that attend doggy daycare leave happy, exercised and well socialized at the end of the day. Daycares are not just for the working owners, but also for those that just want their dogs to HAVE SOME FUN AND RUN, RUN, RUN!

Dogs thrive on routine so our staff sticks diligently to the same daily activities. Our 2 daily walks start at 9 am and will continue until all the dogs are walked. Dogtrix has a 1–½ acre of securely fenced walking pen. This allows all the dogs to enjoy an off leash walk in safe groups of 5-6 dogs at a time. We do not allow jumping, mounting, rough play, body slamming or extreme chasing. Dogs are redirected using positive associations, and  our goal at Dogtrix is to work with your pet to encourage proper healthy socialization.

Our highly trained staff is long term and certified in our in house training Pet First Aid and Pet CPR. At Dogtrix we believe in prevention and the handlers are trained to focus on certain dog language and provide proper positive re-direction for unwanted behavior. Our staff works to get know your dog individually and learn all their personality quirks. We know some dogs require one on one attention when they first become part of our pack. This type of training will allow your dog to integrate into our pack safely and smoothly.

Dogtrix provides a home away from home, where your dog has the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe environment.
