Structured Daycare for Dogs
Doggie Daycare at Ridgeside provides structured fun and socialization for your dog. Dogs are grouped together based on size, energy level, and other defining factors. Dogs that are not dog friendly, still get lots of solo playtime with a staff member!
Our Doggie Daycare is a rare opportunity for lucky dogs to be immersed in an amazing environment from day to day. Learning never stops and all dogs can benefit from proper social behavior.
You have the option to pay daily or prepay for a quick checkout. We do not require any kind of reservation; you are welcome to drop off and pick up anytime during regular business hours.
You will need to park in the parking lot and walk your pup into the lobby for check-in. Please ensure that your dog is secure in their leash and collar/harness. A slip leash is a great tool to ensure that your pup is secure and safe!
About doggie daycare
Ridgeside K9’s doggie daycare program is open to ALL dogs. We provide a safe and controlled environment for your dog to have a great time while you travel to and from work or other engagements.
We will work with your dog while in daycare by creating structure, pack behavior, and overall boundaries. While the majority of dogs in doggie daycare thrive in a group setting with other dogs, some do not. We can still manage and care for dogs that do not do great in a group setting.
All dogs welcome:
- Small dogs (private area)
- Older dogs that just want to sleep the day away (private area)
- Dog aggressive dogs – kept private, still given 5 breaks and free time, but kept separate from other dogs
- Neutral and social dogs – VERY large group play area

While the majority of dog owners would love nothing more than to stay at home with their furry friends all day every day, that is simply not usually possible. Most adults have obligations outside of the home which prevent them from spending all of their time with their dogs and other pets. Work, business trips, running errands, and many other daily activities keep many adults busy and away from their dogs.
As a good dog owner, you want to make sure that your dog has the best possible life. When they are able to spend their time with you, that is the best thing they can imagine. However, when you are away from home for long stretches of time, dogs often become sad, lonely, or even aggressive. To prevent sadness, loneliness or bad behavior while you are away from your home, you may want to consider enrolling your dog in dog daycare.
