We provide a safe, loving open environment for your dog to romp and play or just rest and be lazy. We want it to be a home away from home with lots of love and attention. We offer plenty of flexible packages as well as single and half-day daycare options. Please visit our pricing and packages page for more information.

Now offering short term boarding! We provide a warm, safe and loveable environment for all dogs that stay with us and board on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights overnight.  


If you need longer term boarding, let us care for your pup at our other location just south of the MSP Airport.  This location offers outdoor space for the pups to stretch their legs and enjoy supervised playtime multiple times per day.  We have spacious indoor kennels and suites as well as space to play. Give us a call if you have any questions or would like to tour this location or go to to create a profile and make your reservation.

Join the Clean Club to receive regularly scheduled nail trim/buffing, plus ear and teeth cleaning to keep your pampered pup in tip-top shape. Members with a monthly subscription also receive a 10% discount on all daycare and boarding plans and pricing for additional value.
