Information for New Clients....
Our expansion is complete and we are enrolling new dogs. We
encourage everyone to complete an enrollment request so we can contact you
directly. Small dogs (30 lbs and under) will be contacted immediately to
schedule an evaluation appointment. Our large dog classrooms are currently full! Openings are filled from
our wait list. The waiting time depends on space availability, but our
satisfied clients will tell you that Dog Tired is more than worth the wait!
If you have a large dog (30 lbs and over) please complete the
enrollment request form. You will be place on our waiting list and when a
space is available you will be contacted to schedule an evaluation.

Did They Pass the Test?
surprised how often Iíve heard dog owners say with relief in their voices, ďmy
dog passed the temperament test and has been accepted into doggy daycareĒ, but
when I ask the owner questions about the daycare, I discover that the owners did
very little investigation. As with any facility or service, itís important to be
an informed consumer. We have a list of suggested questions to ask of a
potential daycare provider. Click here for
Doggie Daycare vs. the Dog Park
The difference between doggie
daycares and dog parks/group of loose dogs is a controlled environment. Here at
Dog Tired, the staff assumes the position of "alpha." The dogs in day care quickly learn to
recognize staff members as the leaders of the pack. We, as staff, are able to
formulate the best playgroups, match dogs of similar sizes, similar play styles, etc.
Staff also step in to help puppies (aka, "doggie nerds" as we like to call them)
appropriately interact with his/her adult peers. In addition, we help dogs understand when another
dog is not in the mood to play, redirecting their attention and/or matching them
with other equally playful dogs. Staff has the luxury of selecting only those dogs
suited for doggie daycare. Lastly, we keep all food out of the communal areas to
curtail food aggression among the dogs.

Our new daycare classrooms are open and we
can announce that we no long have a waiting list for small dogs. We do
still have a wait list for dogs over 30 lbs., but we hope to significantly
reduce the wait time in the next few months.
