Choosing a dog daycare or a place to board your dog is a big decision, one that we all sometimes struggle with. After all, our dogs trust us with every decision we make for them. At The Dog Spot, we understand this. That is why we recommend that you tour other dog daycares, as well as ours, so that you can be sure to get the right match for yourself and your dog. You may tour our facility any day, with the exception of Sunday, from 7:00am to 11:30am and 2:30pm to 6:00pm
When you first step foot into our facility, the first thing that you will likely notice, is that your senses will not be overwhelmed. You will not smell strong odors, and you will not hear a bunch of dogs barking. Many people comment that it doesn’t sound or smell like there are any dogs at our facility at all. There are not any strong odors because we know the importance of keeping a clean facility and there is no barking because the dogs are all content and enjoying themselves.
When you begin your tour, you will find that inside we have wall to wall sealed rubberized flooring. The benefits of a rubber floor, as opposed to concrete or tile, is the added cushion to help ease strain on joints, and traction to help prevent slipping while your dog plays. Rubber flooring is particularly beneficial to dogs with hip dysplasia and arthritis.
Dog play rooms are separated by solid walls and doors, not chain link fencing. This allows your dog to focus on playing in its group, and not what is happening outside the group. Plus, the solid walls are much safer for the dogs then chain link, or other fencing materials and gates. The Dog Spot is also completely temperature controlled, having two ceiling mounted 5 ton HVAC units, ensuring that your dog will always be comfortable.
Outside, you will find that we have two large play yards, contained by solid, vinyl fencing, which again, is much safer for your dog that chain link or wooden fencing. Also, because our fencing is solid, your dog will be interacting with the other dogs and not getting stressed out about what they can’t see (i.e. the mail man, and crazy squirrel, kids in skateboards). Kiddy pools, sun shades, misting systems, dog cots, and lounging carpets provide a variety of play options. .
We separate our dogs into different play groups so that your dog will always be comfortable with the level of activity in the group. A trained, knowledgeable, caring staff member is always with your dog, so that you can be sure your dog is always safe and having a great time.
At The Dog Spot, we believe you know what is best for your dog. And we know your dog trusts you with the decisions you make on their behalf. No amount of text on a website can give you the feeling of security you get from a tour and from meeting the people that will be watching your dog. Take the time to tour multiple dog daycare options. Please come to The Dog Spot and see what we can provide for your dog. Meet our staff, than choose the place that makes you feel the most comfortable. Your dog trusts that you will make the right decision.
