Daycare Activity Center

With every new year comes new and exciting opportunities for our canine guests here at the Doggy Daycare Center. This year, we will be adding an ‘Activity Center’ – which is perfect for our fearful, shy, less social, or easily over-stimulated dogs. Based on our yearly evaluations, dogs who are recommended for this program will participate in engaging activities and smaller groups or one-on-one activities with one of our trained staff members. Our focus will be on keeping your dog’s mind and body occupied in a less stressful environment.

We offer this program as an option for any dog that, based on evaluations, would be better off in small group or one-on-one play, as we believe every dog deserves exercise and mental stimulation for good health. 

We believe in being fair to our guests, and making their time with us stress- and anxiety-free as possible.  The best way to create this is through consistency. A consistent schedule helps your dog understand expectations and routines. When your dog starts to understand these expectations and routines, great progress can be made in regards to stress levels and anxiety issues!

We recommend dogs in this program attend two to four times weekly, with a maximum of three activities per day.  As this program is specialized to each specific dog’s needs, sign-up and scheduling is very important. If you are interested in more information, please feel free to contact The Orrville Pet Spa & Resort staff members.
