Dog Gone Happy (DGH) is not your typical daycare.  With over 17 years of experience, we are fully committed to continuing to create a safe, clean and happy environment for dogs of all shapes, sizes, and ages. The exercise our dogs receive at daycare will send them home tired, happy, and cooperative for the rest of the day.    Pools, bubbles, wrestling, chasing, loving and general good times can be had for all at Dog Gone Happy! Provide your dog with the exercise and socialization they have been dreaming of!

Dogs on outdoor play structureStaff is trained to use positive reinforcement and redirection to get voluntary behaviors from our pups. We take a proactive approach maintaining a safe and fun atmosphere by teaching good doggie manners during play. Limited enrollment of 25 dogs a day ensures adequate supervision of all attending dogs. 

Our days are structured. Dogs are dropped off between 7:00 and 9:00 AM. Pick up begins at 4:00 and lasts until 6:00 (late fees do not accrue until 6:15). This allows us to collapse fences and open doors, giving dogs a large open area (both indoor and outdoor) in which to play and enjoyBoo themselves.

Regular weekly attendance by all enrolled dogs makes for a fun, stable, and predictable environment. Many of our dogs have had friends at Dog Gone Happy (both two- and four-legged) for all their lives. Once settled in at Dog Gone Happy, schedule adjustments can be accommodated.
