2. Home Buddies
At Home Buddies your dog is free to just be a dog for the day! There’s room to play indoors and out, supervised by certified “Camp Bow Wow” counselors of course. For pups with sensitive stomachs, be sure to bring your dogs food from home as they like to serve your dog the food he’s used to at home. And if you’re curious about how your playful pal is doing during the day, Home Buddies has live “Camper Cams” for your viewing pleasure. Home Buddies offers a variety of other services like grooming, training, and much more! Be sure to check out their website for more information.
For pet care that comes to you, choose Patrick’s Pet Care. Give him a call and he will come pick up your pets and have them spend the day with him, or if your pet is more comfortable in his own environment, Patrick’s will come to your home for the day! Their goal is to take care of your pet according to their usual routine in order to make them as comfy as possible. In addition, if you’re just looking for someone to drop in every now and then for a walk or a feeding, Patrick’s is there for that as well.
For older dogs who do not do as well in the kennel setting, there’s Loyalty Pet Care! Through their “House Warmer” program, your dog can stay at home and get some quality TLC during the day. Your dog will be visited by the same caregiver three times a day in thirty minute intervals to walk, feed, or just spend some quality time with your dog. They ask that all pets pass a pre-sitting evaluation and that they are in reasonably good health. They also feature a “Direct Access” policy in which you have direct communication capabilities with your pet-sitter!
With over 20,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space to run, your dog is sure to love All Dog’s Club “Day Camp.” They’ve got all kinds of things for your pup to play in including a mini pool, sandbox, agility course, and a castle playground!

For a different kind of doggy day care, there’s Fetch! Pet Care. At Fetch! you’ll drop your dog off with a sitter at their house and pick them up at the end of the day. They’re a rapidly expanding pet care service, but most likely your sitter will be somewhere in your neighborhood for your convenience. Your dog will play with a couple other dogs for the day in a warm and loving home environment. If your dog doesn’t do so well with other dogs, don’t worry about it. Fetch! also offers private pet care upon request.
