What makes Frolick Dogs day boarding unique?
A Structured Day of Activities
The day starts with an hour of group play; up to 8 dogs at a time romp off-leash with others they play well with to socialize and burn off energy. Staff are on-hand to toss tennis balls, get the pups playing with tug toys, and more to ensure they all have fun. Dogs then spend downtime in an individual stall or crate located on our sunlit mezzanine before participating in two 30 minute workouts with an experienced dog handler using our agility course, balance equipment or treadmills. Our goal is that each dog is challenged both physically and mentally throughout the day, it's sure to tire them out!
Your dog is walked outside before each workout, meaning they receive 2-3 outdoor walks a day. This is to encourage them to do their business outside, however we recognize that accidents happen and do not punish for this, we just clean it up!
Recognizing that no two dogs are alike, we are able to tailor a dog's day boarding experience to meet their needs. If your dog does not play with others, we skip the group time and focus on individual workouts. If you are working on getting your dog to not pull on the leash, we will work with you to reinforce heeling on their outdoor walks. We take pride in knowing all of our dogs and their owners and are sure to let you know how they do each day, periodically sharing pictures and videos of their latest accomplishment!
