Our Services

Dog Daycare Redefined

Evenings with your dog will be easier and more enjoyable when your dog is both mentally and physically tired after a structured day of play.

Our group environment is small and playgroups are curated to maximize your dog’s satisfaction and fun while in our care. Our doggy daycare experience is professionally-designed enrichment-based constructive time spent with top notch, trained and experienced, caretakers. Daycare includes not only playtime with friends, but enrichment activities, training time, physical challenges like agility games, and a variety of other activities.

Our enrichment-based daycare service is available seven days a week, including holidays. A holiday surcharge of 15% applies for daycare on holidays purchased individually. Modified schedules may also apply on holidays.

Want to make your dog feel extra special for a special occasion (or any occasion)? Don’t miss our Ultimate Enrichment Experience for a day of pampering and one-on-one attention and activities customized for your dog.

Enrichment-Based Doggy Daycare

Our clients tell us they refer to our daycare experience as “sending their pup to school.” This is not your average doggy daycare environment with eight hours of doggy chaos – it’s a small group, supervised, structured play experience designed to engage, teach, tire, and socialize your dog.

Puppy (under 1 year old) daycare includes frequent outside potty breaks and reinforcement of proper potty behavior/house breaking, basic crate training, and group & individual work on basic obedience commands. (For problem behaviors or more involved puppy training, including more targeted bite inhibition with humans, full crate training or work on separation anxiety, inquire about our board & train options.)

Pre-arranged drop off time for daycare is between 7-9am and pick up is between 4-9pm.

School bus service (pick-up and drop-off) for daycare is also available for $10 each way within 5 miles of our facility.

Weekly and monthly discounted packages are available for daycare, including memberships for monthly unlimited daycare services.

Dog Walking

Dogs need both physical and mental stimulation to remain happy, healthy, and well behaved. Evenings with your dog will be easier and more enjoyable when they have mental and physical exercise and stimulation while you are busy during the day, or at work.

All dogs should get out of their home or yard daily, so our weekday walks are particularly good for dogs who don’t do well in a group environment like daycare or don’t need to attend daycare five times a week.

This service is available Monday through Friday except on holidays. Walks are typically scheduled between 10:30am and 2:00pm, but we will work with your schedule so that your dog can get a midday break while you are gone.

After the walk, you will receive a report card with a GPS tracked map and pictures, along with notes from your walker.

Daily walk packages are available by the week or the month.

Don’t miss our Ultimate Adventure Hikes! These extended walks are available seven days a week and are perfect for wearing out your high energy pup in a novel environment.

Weekday Dog Walk

We’ll take your dog out for a 30 minute spin mid-day. This can be a scent walk, exercise walk, training walk, or some of each. 

If the weather is inappropriate for a walk (i.e. too hot or too cold to walk safely, or your dog doesn’t like walking in the rain), we’ll bring the party to your dog in the form of play in the yard or indoors with enrichment toys or puzzles, fetch, or other games, along with a quick potty break.

This service is available Monday through Friday. (If you need care for your dog on a holiday or weekend, please book a pet sitting stop, which can include a walk.)

Ultimate Adventure Hike

This is our premier exercise dog walk experience.

Do you need a break from your high energy dog? (Or maybe your dog needs a break from you!)

If you have an extra busy week or weekend planned, this is the opportunity for both you and your dog to decompress.

We’ll pick up your dog from your home and take them to a nearby (or not so nearby) trail for an approximately 90 minute hike.

An Adventure Hike can also be added to your dog’s daycare day or boarding stay at our facility at a discounted price.

Boarding

Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, your pet deserves to be well cared for and treated like family. When you board with A Way With Dogs, your dog will stay safely overnight and participate in our daycare program during the day. You can feel confident we will tend to both your pet’s physical and psychological needs while you are gone.

A 15% holiday surcharge applies to all vacation services on major holidays.

Stay and Play  (Overnight boarding)

Bring your dog for a pajama party with their friends at A Way With Dogs! Your dog will stay with us overnight in a comfortable, homey environment where they will sleep in a crate, or on a dog bed or couch, in accordance with their home routine. Your dog will have breakfast and dinner with us and participate in our enrichment daycare (see above) during the day.

This is a 24 hour service charged by the night. For services over 24 hours, a full or half day of daycare will be added. (For example, if your dog is dropped off at noon and picked up at 5pm the following day, a half day daycare charge of $20 will be included on the invoice.)

Add pick-up or drop off to any boarding service for $10 each way for locations within 7 miles of our facility.

Puppy Boot Camp

$1999 & up

New puppy taking more time and energy than you thought?

Is your puppy more of a handful than you bargained for?

Need to work on a daily routine with your dog but your own daily routine is in chaos?

No time to socialize your new dog in new environments and with new dogs and humans?

Are you struggling with a particular puppy behavior or stage?

Our Puppy Boot Camp follows and expands upon the philosophy laid out in Patricia McConnell's Puppy Primer. It starts with basics like house breaking, obedience training, bite inhibition, and socialization and moves onto more complex concepts as time and your puppy's ability allows.

Contact us for availability and a full consultation and quote.

Puppies must be up to date on vaccinations to the extent possible to minimize risk while in our care.

Board or Daycare & Train

Contact Us

Board & Train and Daycare Training options are available to address issues and problem behaviors in puppies or adult dogs, encourage healthy adaptive behaviors, improve social behavior, and address other specific needs such as reactivity, leash walking, and more. Each scenario will be assessed and priced on a case by case basis depending on the difficulty of the issue and time required.

All custom training services include a written plan to work on at home, and where needed, a session to provide you with the know-how to continue reinforcement of desired behavior and follow-up sessions to address issues that arise at home.

Contact us for a consultation and quote to create a plan for you and your dog. Services may be priced on a weekly, monthly, or per session basis depending on your dog's needs.
