Cage-Free Play + Socialization for your Dog

House of Woof offers our daycare guests supervised play in our indoor and outdoor play areas. Dogs are selected to daycare areas based on their size, temperament and play style to guarantee the best experience possible. Our daycare areas come equipped with custom dog-friendly playground equipment, indoor camera access for parents, air conditioning, padded rooms to promote relaxation, and trained staff supervising.

Benefits of Daycare

Socialization:

From the meek maltese
to graceful golden retriever,
our puppies descend from wolves: natural pack animals. Constant interaction satisfies their desire
for play and gives them the
confidence to approach
situations appropriately

Safety:

Letting dogs go free rein
in the home tempts disaster,
whether it be torn electric cords
or access to forbidden foods, something the trained eye
of a certified staff member
can easily avoid

Routine:

As creatures of habit, dogs
feel most secure when they can
predict what’s coming next and
excited when there’s something
to look forward to. Signing them
up for premium care gives them
the structure needed to
enjoy life

Purpose:

Even if your dog seems
content with staring out the
window till you come home, a monotonous, sedentary lifestyle can cause him to act out in dangerous ways. Daycares function similarly to
a relaxing vacation, replacing
any boredom with
happiness

Variety:

From high energy play to
cuddles with staff, daycare
is a one-stop dog shop that
caters to a dog’s every
desire without requiring
you to shuttle them
from place to place

Exercise:

Most importantly, daycare
provide a safe space to express
doggy behavior, reducing
restlessness and sure to leave
your pup relaxed and ready to
snuggle when you get home

How to Participate in Cage-Free Daycare at House of Woof

Screening Process: Just like humans, not all dogs are good socially with other dogs. Before any dog can part-take in play in our cage-free space, they must

1) Pass our House of Woof evaluation, where we evaluate the dogs based on:

  • Human Interaction (e.g., meeting handling, obedience)
  • Dog Greetings (e.g., body posture, excitement / anxiety)
  • Open Play Behavior (e.g., play style, stress level)

2) Be spayed or neutered between 6-7 months

3) Be fully vaccinated and meet our other requirements (see requirements)

If your dog isn’t suitable for cage-free play with other dogs, that’s more than okay! Please check out our doggie suites which comes with 24/7 camera access for parents, and private outdoor playtime 3 times a day with a staff member.

What to Expect After Your First Day in Daycare?

Just as our first days of school can be overwhelming, so can your pups at daycare. Not to fear! The constant play and fun can make some guests tired and thirsty, while others only drink their fill and will urinate more frequently at home. Over time, their drink and rest behavior will even out to get the absolute most out of our daycare. Remember, the more they participate, they more likely they will be to assimilate.
