The front desk is the check-in point for your dog's day. We'll have your dog's file on hand with all of their informations. Remember to update us if anything will be different, such as a change to feeding schedule, phone or address, or if someone else will be picking your dog up that day.
Your dog will be checked in through an airlock style system. The double gate must be kept closed at all times to make sure everyone is safe. We ask that pets only come past this point in order to ensure everyone's safety and comfort.
The daycare consists of two open play rooms, connected by an open door. The first room connects to the front lobby via the double gates. Here you might spot our guests lounging on the qiipitup beds or wrestling quietly on the floor.
The second room provides lots of open space to run and play, the passage to the backyard, and most importantly the coveted mid-afternoon sun spot, group napping on a quiet afternoon after a morning of wrestling and running.
Our lower walls are covered in FRP panels. These are hospital grade panels that are completely waterproof, sealed, and sanitary. Our playroom floors are sealed rubber matting designed specifically by veterinarians for use in kennels, clinics, and daycares. They are no-slip, comfortable, and cushioning under your dog's feet allowing for safe play with plenty of soft landings and great traction. They're sealed directly to the walls to ensure there are no seams to catch toe nails on, and that the daycare can be kept clean and fresh for your pet at all times. We like to say we have the best smelling daycare in town!

K9to5 boasts a permitted outside yard where the dogs can relieve themselves, catch a breath of fresh air, and find a patch of sun if they so desire. Our secure privacy fence ensures that dogs are unbothered while out for a break. Our outside yard means that dogs can be let out frequently during the day, so you don't have to worry about water restrictions based on bathroom breaks, or about your newly house trained puppy having a setback because of daycare. We make sure dogs get the chance to go out often.
It is out here where we set up our wading pools on hot days as well so the dogs can have a paddle and play with their toys in the water.
Medication prep, private feeding time for dogs who eat lunch while at daycare, and a time out space for dogs who need a short break from all the hustle and bustle of the daycare. Gates replace doors, so that even if staff are in the lunch room, they can see, hear, and get to the dogs at all times.
K9to5 Dog Daycare is staffed by Canine First Aid certified employees. We keep a fully equipped first aid kit safely out of dog-reach at all times.
Your dog's collar is removed when they arrive at daycare. This prevents accidental strangulation should the dogs get their teeth caught in collars during play.
Like the daycares designed for your human family members and friends, K9to5 Dog Daycare has fire drills, where dogs practice being hooked up to a specially designed leashing system that will allow all dogs to be safely removed from the daycare in case of an emergency. We hope it never happens, but regular practice ensures that if it ever does, both dogs and people will know exactly what to do.
