Doggy Daycare

Our Doggy Daycare is Your Best Bud’s Happy Place!

At Shaver Road Animal Hospital, we understand that your dog is unique. That’s why we work hard to make sure that each and every pup that visits our daycare is treated like an individual.

Not only do we have five acres of wooded and meadowed property at our disposal – we also have a dedicated doggy daycare attendant on hand to make sure that every pooch gets exactly the right amount of physical and mental exercise they require, either in a group or one-on-one. And, since many of our daycare members crave human companionship even more than they do the company of their fellow canines, we make sure they get plenty of time with our tender loving team.

Unlike most daycares, we do not simply throw the whole pack of dogs out into a yard all at once. Instead, we take the time to get to know each dog’s temperament and needs and then create specific playgroups to minimize conflict and maximize fun.

If you’d like more information or want to book a daycare slot for your pup, give us a call at (269) 323-2831 today!
