There are three play areas in Poochies &
Mutts, which total over 8000 square feet. They are all enclosed so
we can have playtime everyday all year long! Each play area is
staffed with one or two trained staff members anytime more than one
dog is present! They are heated and air-conditioned for the comfort
The dogs are separated according to size and temperament.
The pens are introduction pens. They are used to slowly introduce
one dog to another and eventually one dog to the group. They give us
the opportunity to evaluate each dog’s temperament and separate
those dogs that may have social problems. They also allow the dogs
to calmly greet (smell) the new dog waiting to enter. The pens also
serve as time-out pens if a dog becomes overly rambunctious.
The floors are sealed with “Xypex” and the walls are sealed with epoxy paint. All plays areas are disinfected with trifectant and are pressure washed daily!
There is an indoor waterfall and wading pond and toys. Dogs that are boarding receive an average of six hours of Free playtime daily! Generally, Play Time is 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM / 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM is Nap Time / 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM is Play Time Again!
