February is upon us and LOVE is in the air! It is that time of year again, we will be hosting our annual Valentine's Day Party! Due to amount of pups seeking a love connection, the love fest will be held on Thursday, February 13th AND Friday, February 14th! If your pup has a standing reservation for daycare on either Thursdays or Fridays, don't worry, your pup is already expected to find cupid's arrow, you will not need to make an additional reservation! 

For our Valentine's Day Party, your pup will be matched with one of their favorite friends to engage in a delicious lunch for two while they pose for a couple adorable pictures! The menu will consist of gluten-free pasta with a dab of pureed pumpkin. 

If you plan to bring your pup to the feast, please leave their lunch time snack at home, they will surely be satisfied with the meal that we provide!

Valentine's Party

First dates are pawkward. Sometimes you meet a perfect  gentleman or a lovely lady and sometimes, sometimes you meet someone who... well... isn't afraid to be themselves. 

Our Valentine's dogs last year were no exception. Some of our pairs hit  it off, others ditched on the check and some went to the bathroom and never returned, leaving their date to finish the meal. And of course, we had a few serial daters who were only in it for the food. We will be giving all of your pooches a chance for redemption... hopefully the fourth time is the charm! After three years, these pups better bring their A-game for the ladies and show us some proper doggy etiquette. Mark your calendars and make your pup a daycare reservation for either:

Thursday, February 13th
Friday, February 14th!

(Dogs attending boarding either day are already booked for the pawty so no need to reserve!)


All pups attending the party will be offered a small plate of gluten-free pasta with a dab of pureed pumpkin to share with one of their favorite furry friend. With all these scrumptious snacks, please leave lunches at home unless absolutely necessary. Some of the young, rowdy pups may still want to bring a small lunch.

Please leave nylabones and rawhides at home. If packing a large bag of food, be sure to write the amount per feeding on the bag.

*  Your dog MUST have a snap "quick release" collar for day care and boarding, with
no tags attached. This is important for your dogs safety.

* Please let us know at least 24 hours ahead of time for cancellations and reservations.

*  Be sure to inform us of any changes in contact information; phone numbers, email/home address, emergency contact, etc.

*  If a family member or friend is picking up your pooch from daycare or boarding, you must pre-pay your bill. If it's a last minute decision to have someone else pick your pup up, please give us a call with payment and let us know who we should be expecting.

We'd be more than happy to take any and all plastic bags off of your hands.
