Dawg Dayz Retreat Training Center Daycare & Boarding

COVID-19 Update

Dawg Dayz Retreat will remain open and operating as normal during this time. 


We are committed to offering free doggie daycare for all nurses, doctors, first responders, etc. who are directly related to COVID-19 care and treatment. 

We appreciate your dedication and your commitment to keeping us safe and wish to make your life a bit easier. Please refer to our "Consultation Request" tab to schedule the temperament assessment and first day of daycare. 

For everyone else who needs our services during this time, we are offering a buy one day of daycare and get one free for as long as we can during this time of unrest.

Please stay updated and follow all recommendations for COVID-19 before dropping your dog off at DDR, including washing your hands regularly and sanitizing all dog belongings as needed. If you or a family member is feeling sick, please do not bring your dog until 14 days after symptoms have subsided.

Thank you for being the best, ever. 

We are here to help. We appreciate you all. We’re in this together.



Day Care

A playdate with the pack!

A safe and fun day of play with our calm and balanced pack. Experienced trainer on-site providing obedience and sociability coaching as needed. Dogs play all day, with short breaks, and come home exhausted and ready to snuggle.


Overnight Stay

A slumber party at the Retreat!

A structured, fun night stay in a safe, calm and comfortable environment. Our on-site trainers offer obedience and sociability coaching as needed. A full day of daycare is included.


Focused Training

From naughty to nice in just three weeks!

Have your unruly dog join us for an extended overnight stay that will reverse negative behaviors and reinforce positive behaviors. We use dog psychology techniques to help prepare your dog to become a calm, obedient and productive member of your family. We teach you to become the pack leader of your own pack to ensure a happy, healthy life for both you and your pup!

Lifetime training support included for each graduate.
