THE WATERING BOWL IS A GATHERING PLACE
For us, it’s all about socialization. Dogs need it. (So do humans for that matter.) Socialization encourages healthy interaction and much-needed exercise.
And water is a great facilitator for interaction. Just ask the kitchen in your house or the upside down cooler in your office. Animals of all species congregate around water or watering holes, if you will.
That’s exactly what we provide for your dogs, a common place to share experiences, burn energy and feel safe to enjoy the company of friends.
They need plenty of room to do their thing
We offer multiple places within our facilities to hang out. First and foremost, we provide expansive climate-controlled, indoor play areas where they can sniff out new buddies, unencumbered by leashes. We also provide expansive outdoor areas to run and play. When the weather is suitable, the pack can roam freely both inside and outside. And in the summertime, they can even splash around in our doggy pools.
Or as we refer to them, oversized watering bowls.
PRESS PAUSE IN THE HOUND LOUNGE
Plus, we offer a relaxation room where dogs can go to get away from the pack. It’s still cage and leash-free, but for some of our older patrons or smaller pups, it offers a breather from all the crazy fun we’re having with the bigger group.
THE HANGOVER IS REAL
You’ll pick up a contented dog. After a full day of play, they’ve released their energy and found their place among the pack. And you may notice that they’re ready for a nice little nap.
We call this phenomenon The Hangover. It happens a lot. And it’s nothing to worry about. Quite the opposite, the hangover is a sure sign that good times were had, and if you think about it, it’s almost like an extra day of daycare at no charge.
WE’RE PROUD OF OUR CAGE-FREE CANINE COMMUNITY
Of course we’re running a business. But when that business involves playing with dogs, we think it’s important to recognize the opportunity we have to make a positive impact.
BEYOND DAYCARE & BOARDING
Our goal is to strengthen the bond between dogs and their owners. That’s why we stress the importance of healthy socialization outside of our walls and well beyond our cash registers.
We encourage you to check out our calendar for free events we support and put on, including hikes, The Macklind Dog Mile, The Hangover Contest, the Mardis Gras Pet Parade, the dog park in Forest Park Southeast. Seriously, there are too many to name. Just check out the calendar or the blog.
