Daycare

Give your dog a fun-filled day of supervised play, hanging out and making friends with other dogs. Your pup will romp around, laugh with our staff, nap and do what dogs love to do – play!

Each dog admitted to our daycare program has been carefully screened for suitability in a group play setting. This screening is not only essential to ensure safe play for everyone, but even more importantly, it’s in your dog’s best interest. We have both indoor and outdoor play areas.  We are the only facility in Greater Lafayette to offer Pup-grass™ in our outdoor play park. Pup-grass™ is synthetic turf specifically designed for dogs. It is a healthier option over other surfaces AND no more dirt and mud when you pick up your pup!

Why Take Advantage Of Pooch Palace Resort & Training Center Daycare?

Your dog needs daily exercise and activity, but busy schedules can make this a difficult task. Instead of feeling guilty or coming home to a “crazy” pup, Dog Daycare will send you home with one tired, happy pooch!



Dogs enjoy other dogs

Your dog will have fun playing and socializing with their new best friends.  For puppies, this experience can be invaluable. Dog Daycare helps them learn appropriate play styles, and they are introduced to a wide variety of dogs (big/small, young/old). As your puppy grows into an adult you will be confident they have the proper socialization to enjoy any outing you’d like to bring them on. 



Dog Daycare can be a great environment for shy dogs to blossom

Whether they are nervous around new people or a little unsure about other dogs, our canine pack and Playgroup Leaders are great teachers to help them develop confidence.  Some dogs prefer to hang out on the sidelines. If your dog is happy to receive belly rubs all day, Playgroup Leaders are happy to lend a hand! 



Some dogs suffer from separation anxiety when they are left alone

At daycare, they will be around other dogs and people all day. Regular exercise and mental stimulation can also help them relax when they do need to be left alone.  Through your dog staying at Pooch Palace, your dog’s health will improve. We provide ample opportunity for your pup to exercise in a safe and monitored environment. We all know that your dog is happier and healthier when they are actively engaged and exercised. Not to mention, healthier dogs lead longer, better quality lives.



Play-time!

Your dog will have ample opportunities to socialize with other dogs of similar size and age in a safe, monitored environment. Socialization skills are important for your dog so that they no longer react to the unknown with fear and aggression. Ultimately, allowing your dog to receive the increased interaction leads to a more confident, people friendly, social dog.



Things To Consider About Dog Daycare

Just like when a child goes to school, sending your dog to daycare means they might come home with an occasional “skinned knee”. In the dog daycare world this might mean a scratch, dirty fur, or sore paw pads.

In a social environment, dogs have a higher risk of “catching a cold”. To prevent this, our facility is cleaned top to bottom every day and all dogs are kept up-to-date on vaccinations. You will be informed if we notice any signs that your dog is ill, but please help by keeping your dog home if you notice they aren’t feeling their best.

Depending on your dog’s socialization skills, it may take a few times for them to become comfortable with the facility and us. We will keep you up-to-date on their daily activities. After a few trips to Pooch Palace your pup should be able to show you how much they love daycare by how excited they get when they arrive!

Your pup will get the most out of their daycare experience by coming on a regular basis, the same days each week if possible. Consistency helps them become familiar with their Playgroup Leader, the pack, and the daycare environment.

Water is available at all times of the day on the play floor, but your dog will likely consume more water when they get home from their busy day of playing. Watch their water intake after action packed daycare days to prevent upset stomachs.

Daycare isn’t always the best option for every dog. For the safety of the pack we can’t accept dogs with specific behaviors that put others at risk including aggression, fence jumping, and extremely rough play. We work hard to maintain a safe environment at Pooch Palace.

Each of our staff members are well-versed and trained in dog dynamics and body language. We assess all dogs, and group dogs into separate play groups based on size, temperament and play style. We are proud to offer an exceptional daycare facility for your dog.
