ON-SITE SLUMBER PARTY at ADL SUNNYVALE
Vacations and business travel can cause stress for pets and owners alike. We know how much you love your pet and how much you'd hate to see him caged for days at a time while you're away. For this reason, A DOG'S LIFE offers an On-Site Slumber Party combined with daycare for one price so you can have peace of mind knowing that they are having a great time while you're away.
Your dog will enjoy a safe, closely supervised indoor/outdoor playground with other dogs during the day. At nighttime, your tired pup will slumber in a private kennel equipped with their own toys, water, and a comfortable bed. We even have staff working overnight to make sure that all dogs are sleeping comfortably and soundly. Our overnight attendant is an active position with a variety of tasks, not just someone sleeping on-site overnight. Our overnight attendants regularly check in on our sleeping pups to ensure that all are safe and well.
Reservations are required in advance, especially during the holiday season.
