As social animals, being stuck at home alone all day when you are at work isn’t much fun for your canine companion.

Dogs love being part of a pack and spending time with their families as well as other dogs. When you enroll your best friend in dog daycare at Paws & Pals Pet Resort, they’ll get to enjoy up to 5-6 hours of fun group play and activity supervised by our caring and professional staff.

Signing your dog up for dog daycare in Prior Lake offers numerous benefits. It provides an outlet for burning off excess energy, helps them learn manners from their canine peers, and more. At Paws & Pals Pet Resort, we have six indoor and outdoor play areas for your dog to enjoy, and our webcams allow you to check in on the action at any time. At the end of the day, your furry friend will be ready to head home and relax with you on the sofa.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What can I expect my dog to experience when he/she is introduced to a group of other dogs?
We will introduce your dog safely and slowly to a few dogs and then ultimately to an entire play group of like-sized dogs with similar temperaments. We will watch your dog closely to make sure they are displaying proper canine body language and is not demonstrating any aggressive or destructive behaviors. We watch very carefully to make sure your dog is having a good time playing with the group. The first thing that will happen is almost every dog will want to “greet” your dog. They will circle each other while sniffing noses, necks, and bottoms, and then go about their day. This is a proper greeting in the canine world. Aggressive dogs will usually not react well to all the dogs sniffing them. Non-aggressive dogs will react to all that sniffing by being friendly or submissive. Oftentimes play bowing and/or a fun game of chase will occur. Over time, your dog will naturally gravitate to other dogs who have a similar play style.
