Dogs are highly social animals. Dog Daycare is an invaluable service for our beloved canines and their owners. Many of us just don’t have time to exercise and socialize our dogs. Yet our dogs need to spend time romping and socializing with a “pack”.
Ciao Bow Wow provides a safe, spacious, green environment where dogs can play, exercise and benefit from being the pack member nature intended.

Dog Daycare at Ciao Bow Wow :

  • Hones Social Skills and Basic Manners by providing positive interaction with dogs and people, and by rewarding proper manners.
  • Builds Confidence and Promotes Health through supervised play that is physically and mentally stimulating.
  • Improves Owner/Dog Relationships by providing necessary socialization and exercise throughout the day, so that you can enjoy relaxed time together in the evening.
  • Curbs Destructive Behaviors at Home by giving dogs the companionship they need when you can’t be with them.
  • Provides a Nurturing Home Away From Home through our staff of loving pet professionals and our luxuriously comfortable play areas.

Our Daily Schedule:

Just like children, dogs benefit from routine. When they know who’s coming and what to expect, they are more relaxed and less prone to stress.

7am to 11:30am: Supervised Playtime
Each of our 3 play areas is supervised 100% of the time by one of our pet professionals. Our supervisors engage the dogs in structured activities; monitor all play to insure the safety and enjoyment of every dog; and give positive reinforcement, pats and praise for good behavior.
Noon to 2pm: Naptime
Like small children, dogs need to rest during the day, but may be having too much fun to take a nap on their own. The mid-day nap in a cozy carrier gives the dogs the rest they need, and welcome, after a full morning of activity. An overtired dog can easily become a stressed dog; and stress can lead to aggressive behavior. For the safety and enjoyment of all our dogs, naptime is a must!
2pm to 7pm: Supervised Playtime
More of the same fun and activities as in the morning session.

Daycare for Your Dog:

Daycare at Ciao Bow Wow includes whatever individual care your dog needs throughout the day, at no additional charge, including:

    • breakfast, lunch and/or dinner*
    • administering medication(s)
    • Special napping beds for dogs who are not comfortable in crates
    • Even a bath for the occasional poop emergency!

*We will store your dog’s food in our kitchen and prepare it according to your instructions at no charge, or provide Wellness dry and/or wet food for your dog at a charge of $1.00 per day.

Our Fee Schedule:

In order for you and your dog to enjoy the maximum benefits of daycare, we recommend that you bring your dog for a full or half day at least once a week. This insures that your pup has enough regular contact with the other dogs to make friends and bond with the pack, and to understand and appreciate our daily routines.

Transportation: Ciao Bow Wow offers complementary one-way (pick-ups or drop-offs) to customers in our area, on an “as needed” basis.  When you are able to transport your pup, please do so. This allows us to provide complementary one-way transportation, even at the last minute. There is a $12 service charge for round trips, per day. Our transportation service is green: by foot and/or pup buggy! Please contact us for details.
