DAYCARE

We all seem to be increasingly busy these days. Demanding careers, coaching the tee ball team, helping the kids with homework, driving the kids from school to practice to lessons and finally back to home can be overwhelming. We seem to have very little time for family, friends and our beloved pets. Taking the dogs for daily walks, play sessions, and obedience classes seem to never get done.

A DOG'S LIFE believes that canine ownership should be not only fun but also enriching. Dogs teach us valuable lessons regarding friendship, loyalty and being happy with the little things. A DOG'S LIFE management team consists of four certified Trainers, three of whom are graduates of the prestigious San Francisco SPCA's Academy for Dog Trainers, and 3 Certified Pet Dog Trainers through the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT). Our trainers work with our staff throughout the week to supervise playgroups and activities, provide on-going employee training, and meet with our clients.

We encourage our human clients to visit our Owners' Lounge to have a cup of coffee or tea and sit down with our trainers to discuss issues regarding their dog, dog behavior or even pick up quick training tips. We believe a well-educated owner is a more effective owner, which leads to a higher quality of life for both owner and dog.

We provide you with peace of mind while our experienced Playgroup Leaders lead your dog through a structured day of dog and people socialization, exercise, play, one-on-one care, and a little rest and relaxation with personalized naptimes. Our custom indoor/outdoor daycare facilities are divided into separate play areas for small dogs, medium dogs, and large dogs. All dogs have regular access to play outdoors and can even take a dip in the pooch pool on warm days.
