*NEW* Enrichment Program & Activities
Does your dog need just a little more than dog to dog play during his day of daycare? Are you going on vacation and want your dog to have a little extra personal time engaging in some extracurricular activities? The Dog-Gone Fun enrichment program is the perfect solution!
Enrichment sessions are 20 minutes in length. Your dog will leave his playgroup and engage in an activity of your choice with one of our trainers. He will then return settled and ready to resume playing.
Puppies can benefit from our obedience sessions by reinforcing good manners and brushing up on simple obedience skills. They can take advantage of environmental socialization with nature walk and simple obstacle courses to help their developing social skills

General Grooming Services
Baths are generally done in the afternoon before your dog goes home from a day of daycare or from his boarding stay. This service is offered 7 days a week.
All baths include:
Shampoo and conditioner
Rates: Between $30-$50 depending on size, hair coat and difficulty.
Nail Trims are a very popular service among our daycare dogs.
$10 - Regular nail trim
$15 - Nail trim with Dremel
Bath & Brush - Available on Wednesdays
Dog-Gone Fun offers a new grooming service, the Bath & Brush. This service is a step above our regular bath. It includes a spa bath, ear cleaning, full blow dry, nail grinding, brush out, and minor trimming.
Bath & Brush is beneficial for all dogs who have an undercoat and tend to have mats. Examples are Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Australian Shepherds, etc. By brushing out the undercoat, shedding is kept to a minimum. Bath and Brush also includes trimming up paw pads, feet, feathers, etc. When kept on a regular schedule it will dramatically reduce the amount of hair on your floors!
Other dogs that will benefit from this new service are dogs that get regular haircuts from a groomer, but want to get a bath and brush out in between grooms. This is perfect for Poodles, Doodles, Bichons, Shih Tzu, etc. This is NOT a replacement for regular grooming appointments, but instead helps prevent matting in between haircuts. The brush out is to get out minor tangles and knots before they become full-fledged mats. Dogs must be kept on a regular grooming schedule in order to receive this service.
Bath & Brush is available on Wednesday afternoons. Daycare/boarding is not required for this service, but we recommend a half day of daycare and a Bath & Brush in the afternoon. They can be dropped off in the morning and picked up when they are ready to go!
Rates: Starting at $40 per hour, depending on the dog’s behavior during grooming and coat condition.
