Superior Dog Daycare You Can Trust
We know it’s a big deal to leave your dog in our hands. It’s an honor we do not take lightly!
At Gone to the Dog’s we have taken the passion and expertise of over 23 years of superior grooming experience to offer truly the best dog day care. Monday through Friday, while you are busy at work or just need to give your special pal a day of great social interaction- bring them by! They’re in good hands.
“Our new facility has a great outdoor area for playing and potty breaks. Dogs go out several times a day for exercise and a breath for fresh air.”
“Nice play merits good behavior. Boundary setting and training is a constant behavior we teach in order to make sure all dogs here have a great day”
Pack Management & Training
Our staff has been expertly trained by one of the best training organizations in Cleveland. We keep this organization as a constant resource to our daycare staff to help solve social and behavioral problems and keep your dogs safe and happy.
We take pride in how well we match dogs to their pods to minimize conflict and make the experience even better for you and for them. During assessment we have no problem letting a prospective customer know their dog just is not a good fit with our current group of dogs. We do everything we can to take care of our pack.
We also have senior experienced staffers who help all our new canine guests learn to respect play-time 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 dog’s experience with us is pleasant, balanced and safe.
As always, in the Gone to the Dogs fashion, we 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.
The safety of our daycare dogs is crucial. We require all new dogs to pass an assessment and trial day before fully participating in daycare. Our assessment tests the temperament of the new daycare dog against our balanced dogs to see whether a dog play social setting is right for your pet.
All dogs must meet the following requirements before assessment:
- Complete the required paperwork (application & agreement) and schedule assessment.
- Individual forms listed below, will also be emailed when you book your assessment.
- At least 6 months old AND spayed or neutered
- Dog is in overall good health
- Current on Rabies, Distemper and Bordetella vaccines
- Flea/tick free and on preventative medication (oral or topical)
- Wearing a quick-release collar
- Dog and people friendly
* The use of Flexi Leads is prohibited *
Assessments can be scheduled Mon. through Fri. by appointment only. Allow 15 to 20 minutes for this process. If your dog passes the assessment, they are permitted to stay the full day for their paid trial.
