Many people do not realize your dog's mind needs to be exercised just as much as the body, if not more! When dogs are getting lots of exercise but are still acting crazy or destructive, it is often because they are not mentally stimulated. Canine Enrichment engages your dog in activities that stimulate their mind and body, encouraging your dog to problem solve, use their body, and become more confident. Work your dog's mind AND their Body in our Canine Enrichment Program! Drop your dog off for the day or add activities on to Boarding or Daycare! This is a great program for ANY dog although perfect for shy dogs, senior dogs or dogs that are not social with other dogs as all activities are one on one. Work the Mind & The Body!
From Play to Stay!
Cool Treats, Fresh Air & Friends!

Absolutely! We encourage our Boarding Dogs to participate in our Enrichment Fun! Our Enrichment Program Activities book quickly, when scheduling your boarding we recommend adding activities at that same time! The sooner you schedule boarding & activities the better off you are. We have clients schedule up to a year in advance, particularly over the holidays! Each activity is $17 and is 15 minutes long. There is a Max of 3 activities a day.
Our Enrichment Program has many benefits and different uses. It is a great program that works the mind & the body offering many activities that work the senses, the brain and the body. One on One Activities can benefit dogs that might be overwhelmed by a group setting, senior dogs, dogs that prefer humans over dogs and dogs that need not only physical but mental stimulation. Working the mind is just as important as working the body.
This is NOT A TRAINING PROGRAM. This program is meant to encourage and support already good behaviors in dogs, preventing them from picking up bad habits and allowing us to send home good dogs as great dogs!
Yes. All dogs are evaluated prior to entering into our Enrichment Program and once accepted will be under evaluation the entire duration of their program. An evaluation is NOT A TEMPERAMENT TEST and in no way determines what kind of dog you have. We only evaluate your dog to understand if this is the best program for them or if they may be more suitable for one of our other programs.
Absolutely! We will not allow clients to schedule any more than 3 activities. This is plenty of time for your dog to get the exercise and attention they need without becoming overly tired and frustrated.
