What is Interactive Day Care?
This is a program where dogs who don’t know each other are allowed to play together in small
groups under close supervision. Dogs are admitted to the South Paw Acres program only after
passing a careful screening process.
Doggie Day Care
Day Care services are offered Monday-Friday. All dogs arrive between 7-10 a.m. on their
scheduled play days, and then leave between 4-6 p.m. Each dog is placed in a play group
suited to his or her temperament and activity level. Generally, small dogs play with like-sized
friends, while the larger dogs socialize with others of their size and temperament. Play groups
are kept small, typically with 5 or less dogs in each one. All dogs get several hours of play time,
mornings and afternoons. Everyone quiets down for a nap from 12-2 p.m. to relax and rest up.
Any dog using the day care services must have a scheduled appointment for each visit to
participate. Regular days of the week are recommended (i.e. every Wednesday), as a
predictable routine is healthier for your dog. Appointments need to be made at least 24 hours in
advance, either by phone or e-mail. You need to have a response from SPA to be sure your dog
is on the schedule before attending. For a full list of pricing options, click here.
