We at Gone to the Dogs have given you superior grooming services for over 17 years and have expanded our service offerings into a daycare for dogs. This daycare will be here to meet our customer’s daily needs, Monday through Friday, while they are busy at work, or just need to give their special canine pal a day of great social interaction. Our daycare is separated by size so our Toy Poodles and Our Great Danes will enjoy comparable companion play days. Open Monday – Friday 7am – 6:30pm (except major holidays)
Our staff has been expertly trained by one of the best training organizations in the Cleveland Market – Elite K911. Elite K911 will be a constant resource to our daycare staff to help us solve social and behavioral problems. As always in the Gone to the Dogs fashion, we will offer high quality day play along with great Ala Carte service offerings, from neighborhood walks and pack trail excursions to integrated salon services . We offer all of this to make our customers experience pleasant and rewarding.
Our mission is to have smaller play groups separated by size and teach our dogs how to be social, have boundaries, play nice so that everyone can enjoy their day. Our behaviorist on staff helps all our new canine guests out to understand that play can be fun for everyone. No picking on another dog, no bullying and if one of our daycare dogs gets tired, we will make sure he/she gets some undisturbed rest. That’s the Gone to the Dogs way, making your dogs experience pleasant and balanced and safe.
