Updated March 2024 - Our Day Stay program is at capacity and we are currently not temperament testing new dogs.
Please check back for updates to see if we have openings in the future.

Your dog needs some play while you work all day!


Day Stay, daycare services are offered MONDAY - FRIDAY.

Drop off between 7-9am and pick-up between 4-6pm.

See requirements below.


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.

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.


We only take 30 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 require all dogs attending listen to our cues and redirection to maintain safety. If you have additional questions or you're wondering how your dog will do in our setting...please email us and we'll give you honest feedback.     

Our crew posts daily pics of the dogs. Be sure to follow them
