Our daycare focuses on safe, monitored and structured socialization as an important part of our positive reinforcement training philosophy. Dogs are social animals and interacting with other dogs and people is an important part of their training and overall well-being.

Puppies, in particular, learn more from other puppies and well-trained dogs and our puppy training program includes daycare. Senior dogs require added comfort and care and our staff provides a socially stimulating and safe environment to address their special needs. Our staff is trained in pet first aid and maintains a clean, safe, and stimulating environment regardless of a dog’s age.

We pride ourselves in maintaining a clean and healthy environment and our facility is vacuumed and washed daily.

Our 8,800-square-foot facility provides a variety of rooms and space to allow dogs opportunities to socialize, play, and rest. All dogs are walked throughout the day and we offer additional services to clients who use our daycare services.

Terrible Twos                                      

Ever wonder what happened to your dog’s willingness to play well with others within the daycare setting? Is your dog well-behaved at home, but daycare reports indicate something different? Dogs don’t fully mature until they are almost 6 (based on breed) and turning 2 is often the beginning of behavior setbacks and new challenges. Just like children, dogs attempt new methods to get what they want and many times their behavior will change within the daycare setting.

For daycare clients only, our trainers will create a more formal assessment of your dog’s behavior and help you develop a plan to work through the “terrible twos.” Additionally, we’re here to help owners become more aware of any social limitations their dog may have. It is not uncommon for dogs to “outgrow” daycare. Oftentimes, there are new and exciting opportunities to share with your dog and our trainers are there to help you identify them.

This service is for daycare clients only.
Prices may vary.

Kong Time

What makes Blue Prints’ daycare setting unique is that, first and foremost, we are a training center that uses daycare as a way to improve behavior and enhance training.

A key piece to high-quality care is the ability to recognize stress and help dogs work through it. Just like people, dogs experience good and bad stress. Kong Time is a great way for trainers to help ease your dog into a more comfortable state of mind. Dogs use their mouth to self-regulate and Kong Time gives them a chance to lick, chew and relax.

Kong Time takes place in a quiet environment and lasts around 30 minutes. It’s an excellent option for dogs that become anxious during drop-off, pickup, or during walks.

Ask our knowledgeable staff if Kong Time is right for your dog and we’ll be happy to implement its use throughout their stay.

Cost: $5 for 30 minutes
