At Doggy Business Dog Training & Lodging, we conduct structured, trainer-led playgroups for dogs. Doggy Business playgroups are four hours long and offer an opportunity for healthy, structured fun. Our playgroups provide a venue for dogs to play with their canine friends while working on appropriate play behaviors and basic skills like sits, downs, and recalls!
Our playgroups are packed with structured training activities and plenty of free play for the dogs. We keep our playgroups small with no more than 20 dogs in each session so that everyone has space to romp.
Morning playgroup 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
- Drop off between 8 & 8:30am
- Pick up between 11:30am & 12:00pm
Afternoon playgroup 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
- Drop off between 1 & 1:30pm
- Pick up between 4:30 & 5:00pm
Playgroups are four hours long and trainer-led, meaning that a certified dog trainer or dog behavior specialist organizes the playgroup and leads the activities. The playgroups are loaded with free play for the dogs, but we interrupt play frequently with training games such as group sits, downs, recalls, follow the leader, and agility games. The combination of structured training games and free play provides a great way to engage the dogs mentally and physically. The dogs work off their energy, get in some fun play, and learn some additional manners and skills. $20/session
One Hour Burn Sessions: Need a quick energy burn for your dog? Sign up for one of our one-hour play sessions. Our Burn Sessions are from 10:30 – 11:30 am or 3:30-4:30pm. Dogs join one of our ongoing playgroups for fun and play and join in our structured training activities. $10/session
Membership: Most of the dogs that come to Doggy Business to play are regular members who have gone through one or our free evaluations and have a guaranteed schedule each week. If you don’t have a regular schedule we can often add your dog to a playgroup. Just give us a call to see if we have the space! We think your dog will love it!
