Dog day care is a fun way for dogs to exercise and socialize!
Our Dog Day Care
There are many benefits to our day care program. Your dog will come home tired and happy. Your dog will get quite a bit of exercise. You do not need to feel guilty about leaving your dog home alone all day. Purrrsuing Learning® is another benefit of our day camp. We will let you know how your pet interacts with other dogs and people. Learning about your dog’s socialization skills is the foundation for an excellent human and canine relationship.
To help ensure safety, we ask dogs to pass an orientation. Please make an appointment to bring your dog in for a one-day orientation. Any dogs that have not been to our Doggie Care in 180 days must complete another orientation. All dogs older than 6 months must be spayed or neutered and current on all vaccinations (please refer to our Immunization Requirements below). To apply for Dog Day Care, please fill out the form by clicking the button below.
Holiday Barn Day Camp playgrounds feature a luxurious and innovative artificial turf. The grass not only looks fabulous but it will keep your dog clean! Synthetic turf means no dirty paws for Holiday Barn campers!
Dogs in our Dog Day Care program enjoy special events each month. We take souvenir photos with Santa, serve “cheese” burrito bites for Cinco de Mayo, organize a Valentines card exchange, host a Halloween Party and more! Check out our Events Calendar!
A HAPPY SCHEDULE
Our schedule is carefully planned to give our campers the perfect balance between play and rest. We rotate the playgroups so they energetically play with their friends for two hours and then take a much-needed rest for two hours. We arrange playgroups based on arrival time as well as size and temperament. Camp is available seven days a week. Please call to make an appointment.
Monday – Friday – 7:00AM to 7:00PM
Saturday – 7:00AM to 6:00PM

Puzzles, Games, Learning New Tricks, Hurdles, Aerobics, Personalized Attention & More! That’s Enrichment!
Dogs need mental stimulation just as much as they need physical activity. In fact, some dogs may resort to undesirable behaviors such as barking, digging and tearing up belongings if they don’t get the mental stimulation that they inherently need. We offer an Enrichment Program to help exercise their brains and have fun at the same time. The program is rooted in a high level engagement with a specially trained counselor. Your dog’s counselor will customize a session for your dog with brain-boosting activities that match your dog’s unique personality. Challenging activities may include:
- Brain Teasers, Advanced Kongs,
Puzzle Toys, Snuffle Mats
- Hula Hoops, Flirt Poles, Bubbles
- Simple Tricks
We will send home a special report card so you will learn which hand-selected fun activities your dog enjoyed the most!
A Personalized Program to Satisfy your Dog’s Instinctive Need for Mental and Physical Challenges!
Enrichment One-on-One Day for Dogs on Vacation, Staycation or Grooming
Your dog’s enriched day will be fully personalized to his/her individual needs and preferences. Once your dog has had time to digest their breakfast, depending on the package selected, they meet their specially trained enrichment counselor and begin with one of the more physical activities like hurdles to challenge their body and mind. The counselor will select activities that match your dog’s personality and athletic ability. This will help to ensure that your dog will have fun and be challenged! Then it’s time for a rest period in their own private room to cool down their body and decompress their mind. Rest periods are important to avoid over stimulation and to help create a healthy balance of rest, play and learning. After their break they may enjoy one of the treat dispensed toys to further challenge their mind, taste and smell senses. If your dog is signed up for two enrichment sessions, that would begin and your dog will still have a little time to relax before dinner is served.

Enrichment Group for dogs enrolled in Holiday Barn’s Dog Day Care
A Dog Day Care Day with Enrichment Group is perfect for dogs with curious minds, extroverted personalities, and lots of energy! Once your dog’s group day care session is completed and he/she has had a rest period to decompress his/her mind and body, dogs in the Enrichment Group begin the enrichment activities to challenge their mind and other senses. The dogs in the small group (3 dog maximum) are carefully selected by our specially trained counselors. Your dog will be with friends that have similar personalities and athletic abilities. The counselor will hand select a variety of games and challenges for the group! For full day campers, dogs will rest again to decompress and enjoy one of their rest enrichment activities such as a treat dispenser toy and then go back for more dog day care play until it’s time to go home.
