While at daycare, your dog will enjoy interaction with both dogs and people and will be placed in a play group that is best suited to his or her size and temperament. All play groups are continuously supervised and good behavior and manners are strongly encouraged.
We know structure is important for your dog’s development. Here’s a typical day at dog daycare:

The daycare session also includes a nap time mid-day, which is always well needed. They play with their canine buddies in playgroups according to their size and/or temperment, or we may accommodate them as they feel most comfortable. They play with the staff of The Dog House in a safe and supervised environment. Your dog can enjoy the warm sun while they play in the pools all summer, or just relax with plenty of shade. In the winter they love romping out in the snow, however, we also have a large indoor play area with all artificial grass as well. The Dog House has controlled temperatures inside the building for the dogs, as well as a very clean environment with circulated air. Keep your dog full and happy at Lucky Dogs Daycare! Send your dog a meal or just a treat.

At City Dogs, we care for your dog like our own. We provide cage-free daycare and overnight boarding (except feeding and grooming), staffed 24 hours a day by dog lovers trained to handle friendly dogs of all sizes, breeds, and energy levels. We can give your dog the salon treatment in our grooming salon. City Dogs also hosts obedience training for puppies and adults.For that reason, we DO NOT use "all day play" or "cage free" programs. These types of programs do offer a few benefits, but when consistently working to improve dogs we have learned that building shorter play groups designed around each dog's play style is much more effective in making a dog both tired and more social at the end of the day. Using shorter play sessions with regular breaks for private naps and rest allows energy use based on your dog's natural approach to activity. And making groups around dog play styles gives your dog a chance to meet new dogs regularly throughout the day and each time she is at doggie daycare, rather than always being with the same dogs, and forming a pack (which is not socialization).After 40 years of training dogs, and 20+ years of doing Doggie Daycare in Birmingham, we have learned that safe, effective Dog Daycare is about using dog's natural play rhythms and behaviors to get tired, happy and better dogs.Dog Daycare has become a huge part of many pooches’ lives, helping them to better socialize with other dogs and giving them a fun outlet for their sometimes boundless energy. At Downtown Dog Lounge, we strive to offer the best daycare service in Seattle for both pooch and parent. Our parents love to watch their dogs play on our live ! We ensure safety by providing 24/7 human monitoring, making sure all dogs are vaccinated, and by having each of our pooches undergo an evaluation with one of our staff members to make sure that the environment is right for them.

All of our guests have the opportunity to take naps to re-energize, snack on a mid-day meal in a private suite, or just play play play straight through the day.
