It's a new year and many of us are working on our plans for health and fitness. At Playful Pooch we would love to be a part of your dogs fitness. A day of group play can give your pups the exercise they need playing with other dogs. We also rest all the dogs in the middle of the day so that they don't get over tired or worn out. They can play in a group that fits their individual size and temperament for up to 8 hours depending on the time of drop off and pick up. We have 3 large areas for outdoor play and 3 large areas inside as well. No matter what the weather, your pet will have a great time with the group. You can watch them on one of our 7 webcams too! If you are new to Playful Pooch, you will need to complete both our application forms, send them in with vaccination records and schedule a full evaluation day. We look forward to helping your dog remain active while you are working or out of town.
Just click here to join The Pooch family! Following a successful evaluation day we'll finalize those daycare or boarding plans for your pooch! For more information, please give us a call at 720-941-7529 and send your faxes to 303-565-1915.
