Dog Daycare

Dog Daycare is an excellent way to provide dogs with physical and mental stimulation in a secure environment supervised by trained professionals.

Dog Daycare at the Lodge provides an outlet for dogs to socialize and exercise with other healthy and friendly dogs. Our dog daycare program can be especially beneficial for dogs who exhibit destructive or inappropriate behavior. Many times, this behavior is due to inadequate exercise or anxiety experienced when left alone. Consistent behavior refreshers throughout the day help to maintain proper doggie manners both at daycare and at home. We also have wonderful dog trainers who provide classes and private dog training programs to help dogs be the best that they can be!

Play School is now available Mondays and Tuesdays. This enrichment and training program is offered in addition to daycare. Dogs have three sessions with a Play School teacher, focusing on engaging all five senses. We work on training cues, and fun puzzles, obstacle courses and a “Sniffari” walk. The introductory rate for Play School is $15 in addition to the daycare fee. Space is limited, so please book in advance.

Examples of Great Candidates for Dog Daycare are:

  • Dogs who would otherwise spend their days alone at home while the family is at work/school
  • Dogs who need more exercise
  • Dogs who would enjoy playtime with other dogs and our staff
  • Puppies who are learning to interact with people and other dogs

Daycare is also a great idea:

  • Before or while you have company
  • Before travel
  • Other times that are stressful for your friend, like during home renovations.

Our dog daycare guests enjoy up to 10 hours of supervised play in our 8,000 square-foot indoor facility with a four zone heating and air conditioning system and live cameras that can be accessed online. There is an additional 2,500 square-feet in fenced outdoor play areas. Dogs have naptime mid-day where we serve lunch if you pack it for your pooch.

To attend dog daycare: 

  • All dogs must pass an evaluation, showing that they are friendly. A boxer dog peeking out of the play equipment during a stay at Cold Nose Lodge
  • Dogs over 6 months of age must be spayed or neutered.
  • Dogs must be current on Rabies, Distemper/Parvo and Bordetella vaccines.
  • Dogs must be in general good health.
  • Dogs under one year of age must have had a negative fecal exam.
  • Dogs must be free of fleas and ticks. A monthly flea and tick preventative is strongly recommended.
  • Our goal is a stress-free environment for all dogs. We cannot accept new geriatric, deaf, blind, or immunocompromised dogs for daycare. For dogs experiencing these conditions, the daycare environment can be extremely stressful.

We offer morning half days or full days of dog daycare  Tuesday-Saturday. (Boarders receive play time every day.) There is a one time $15 fee for your dog’s evaluation. Those who are approved for play will receive a free half day daycare voucher. To schedule an evaluation give us a call at (610) 965-3647.

Dogs who are approved for daycare are also approved for overnight boarding. Dog training is also available during daycare.

Please schedule 48 hours in advance.
