Your dog needs some play while you work all day!
Day Stay, daycare services are offered MONDAY - FRIDAY.
No human contact drop off between 7-9am and pick-up between 4-6pm. See requirements below.
OUR GIANT SPACE WILL WEAR THEM OUT!
8,000 sqft of FUN (and that's just indoors!)
We believe in a kennel free environment where dogs are allowed to make the space their own throughout the day while being supervised and entertained. We stick to a daily schedule, which includes: ball time, running laps and separation according to gentle or active play so every dog's needs are met. The dogs know what to expect when staying with us and we become a comfortable habit to them. We ask that your dog be fed prior to arriving at Dogwood. During Covid-19 we offer no contact drop-off and pick-up.
Day Stay is a day of playtime, chasing balls, jumping ramps and sprinkler fun! Break time means lounging on cots in a clean, kennel free space. After you pick up your dog, stop at The Seattle Barkery Treat Bar and take home treat on us!
We only take 25 dogs per day for Day Stay, so reservations are required. All new dogs must pass an initial temperament test to join Day Stay. Temperament tests take about 15 minutes and need to be completed during "Play Park" hours at least one day prior to your dog's Day Stay visit.
PLEASE NOTE - Although the dogs are constantly under our supervision, we expect them to understand cues from other dogs and maintain a safe level of play with guidance from our crew. High energy players that are consistently at a level ten may not be an ideal fit for our kennel-free environment. Often these dogs require controlled time outs and a full cool down before re-entering play to maintain safety. We LOVE active players, we just want it to stay safe and require that all dogs attending can listen to our cues and redirection. If you've got additional questions or you're wondering how your dog will do in our setting...hit us up and we'll give you honest feedback.
Our crew posts daily pics of the dogs. Be sure to follow them https://www.facebook.com/DWdaystay/
Day Stay is at capacity. We are no longer accepting new dogs.
Please check back for updates or openings.
1) Email completed "Day Stay Application" and current vaccination records (Rabies, DHPP & Bordetella.)
2) Make a reservation to come visit Play Park. All dogs must have one successful Play Park visit before we will schedule a temperament test.
3) Schedule your temperament test.
All dogs must pass a temperament test before admittance (Temperament tests are done during Play Park hours, not the morning of Day Stay services.)
Tests available Monday - Friday at 5pm, 6:45pm and 8pm.
If you recently adopted your dog, we require you've had them at least three months before an evaluation. This time allows for bonding and any unknown behaviors to surface.
We are a kennel free daycare, so all dogs must have good recall, maintain a safe level of play with guidance from our crew and not have issues with the following:
excessive and/or demand barking
We will assess these behaviors during your evaluation and can offer tips should any issues arise.
4) Once you're approved, reserve your spot!
