Doggie Day-Sitting

Family Pet Boarding also offers Dog Day-Sitting (during the day) for canine pets who are not social with other dogs, or not yet spayed or neutered. While you are at work or running errands, our staff will spend one-on-one time with your dog, play with them, and keep them safe and comfortable away from the other animals.

What is Day Sitting?

Day-sitting is a great way for your pet to release their energy, and not be left alone all day! Day-sitting is for dogs that are unneutered, unsprayed, or do not get along with other dogs. Your dog will get one-on-one time with a staff member.

What does my dog’s day look like?

Upon arrival, we take your dog outside to go potty and then we set them up in one of our runs. If the weather is nice, they will be able to be outside for the majority of the day. We start playtimes around 8 am. 15-20 minute playgroups are rotated throughout the morning until 11 am. If your dog get a lunch they will be fed at this time and have the ability to take a short nap till till 1 pm. Playtimes start again at 1 pm and end at 4:30pm.

How often will my dog be in a playgroup?

All day-sitting dogs receive at least two playtimes during the day.

How often will my dog be able to go to the bathroom?

All day-sitting dogs receive at least three potty breaks during the day.

Where does my dog play?

During colder weather, we play with dogs upstairs in our indoor 1,000 square foot room. During nicer weather, we play with dogs in one of our outside yards.
