At Dawgs in Motion we refer to Daycare as Day Camp; where your pup can play with all our other dogs! We accept all breeds, ages, and sizes!
Day Camp is one of our most popular services here at Dawgs in Motion! We have about 300 dogs that use our Day Camp service each week. Day Camp is always supervised by our great staff that can recognize dog body language to maintain a safe play environment for all the dogs.
Our facility features three large, fenced in outdoor fields (with real grass!), four smaller fenced in areas, and an indoor space when Wisconsin weather strikes. Another great feature, NO STAIRS! Stairs can be challenging for young and old dogs, but they won't have to deal with them here.
The dogs run and play for several hours through out the day, with an hour long nap and snack break in between. We do our best to keep the dogs outdoors in our largest areas, and to keep them comfortable no matter the weather or season.
We separate our Day Campers into two or more groups based on dog size, personality, and energy level. Typically we have a group for smaller dogs, puppies, and elderly dogs, and the other group is larger dogs and higher energy dogs of all ages. Every day before Day Camp begins, our Day Camp Managers create the groups based on who is coming in that day, taking all personalities into consideration so that everyone is comfy and happy!
We introduce new dogs to Day Camp slowly, one dog at a time, so the new dog isn't overwhelmed. This also allows our Day Camp Supervisors to evaluate which group the dog will thrive in.
If your dog is not a good fit for our regular large group social environment, we offer alternatives so your dog can still play and get that energy out.
"Both of my boys, Dinger and Mason, have attended doggy daycare once a week since we got them and they were about 4-6 months old... still love going on a weekly basis. The staff is always very friendly, helpful and accommodating. I trust all of them with my "babies". They definitely get some extensive play time during the day because they are always passed out on the ride home and for a while after we arrive home. If you are looking for a place to send your dogs for a day or overnight, Dawgs in Motion is the place to do it! You will not be disappointed in this decision."
