The Watering Bowl
cage-free canine community doggie daycare boarding training

A day at The Watering Bowl Doggy Daycare & Boarding may look like a whole lot of running, playing and slobbering, but it’s also a lot of learning, leading and following.

In fact, more water fell in eight hours than we’ve received in an entire day, going back all the way to 1915. Naturally, this storm has affected many of our neighbors, customers, friends and family across the…

UPGRADE EDITION Okay, we’ll admit it: Your dog probably won’t notice most of our improvements.

At The Watering Bowl, we’re kind of like part-time red carpet photographers, capturing the most fabulous dogs at their most fabulous-ness-est. Now, we’re looking to increase quality, at the cost of a bit of quantity. That means we won’t always feature your dog—but when we do, that portrait will be worthy of prime placement on…
