    Your Dog is Begging to Play at Applewood!

    Do you worry about how your dog is faring home alone while you’re at work or out running errands? Even the most laid-back of dogs need a change in environment to keep them mentally stimulated. Every dog is different, but most dogs prefer a fun and exciting environment to lying around at home staring at the same four walls. Doggie Daycare offers that stimulating environment and so much more! Bring your dog to Applewood and continue your day worry-free because you know your dog is not only have the time of his life playing with us but is also being looked after by dedicated, loving, educated staff members.

    At Applewood, we offer daycare options to fit any pet, whether your dog likes nothing more than running around with other dogs, prefers playing with a human friend, or just needs a place to rest and be looked after during the day. Each of our daycare programs are designed for your dog’s energy level, size, social needs, and sensitivity.

    Applewood Pet Resort has recently been remodeled with your dog in mind. Check out the features that give you peace of mind and make our doggie daycare the place your dog is begging to go:

    • Over two acres of divided outdoor play yards, naturally shaded with trees to let your dog enjoy the open air without over heating in the hot sun.
    • Multiple indoor play rooms, temperature controlled to escape the desert sun in the summer or to stay dry during the odd rainy day
    • Dog-friendly artificial turf yards for year round green grass to play on
    • Play ramps for climbing and a variety of toys for tug-a-war and fetch
    • Private rooms with Kydex flooring for comfortable relaxation between playtimes
    • Constant supervision by a dedicated staff member to maximize both safety and fun for your dog
    • Temperament testing to carefully select the best fit play group for your pup taking into consideration size, energy level, social needs, and sensitivity

    Important: For your dog’s safety we require updated vaccinations for all dogs who come to daycare. This means he needs to be at least 16 weeks/ 4 months old as this is the typical age in which dogs receive their last round of shots.

    Daycare Options

    Group Play (Daycare)

    Is your dog happiest when surrounded by other doggie friends? Then he’ll love our Group Play at Applewood! We break up the dogs into groups by size and temperament and carefully select a play group for your dog. A full three hours of indoor and outdoor playtime, an hour and a half of playtime in the morning and another hour and a half in the afternoon and your dog stays in a private, size appropriate room when he’s not outside. The right combination of rest and play is our secret to wearing your dog out for an all-night sleep.

    * In addition to updated vaccinations, all dogs over the age of six months are required to be spayed or neutered to participate in Group Play.


    Not all dogs do well in our Group Play environment, and that’s okay. We still want them to have a fun and exciting time here at Applewood. Our Playcare program offers the opportunity for your dog to get personalized playtime one-on-one with a dedicated staff member. Playtime consists of two Pet & Plays outside in one of our play yards designed specifically for individual play. When your dog is not outside playing, he’s resting in a size appropriate private room and is being looked after with all the love, care, and attention we give to all our guests.

    Daycare (Individual)

    Designed for our timid, injured, and elderly visitors who need care and attention more than exercise, Individual Daycare offers a private, size-appropriate room for your dog to rest in during the day. He’ll get multiple potty breaks and a chance to stretch his legs during the day in our potty break runs, all the while being watched and cared for by our loving staff members.

    Additional Add-Ons

    Pool Time

    In addition to our spacious play yards, Applewood also features a dazzling bone-shaped Doggie pool complete with water jets and gurgling geysers to keep your dog constantly entertained. This 18-inch deep wading pool contains chlorine-free salt water, which benefits healthy skin and coat for your dog. Pool Time is available as an add-on in addition to daycare playtime all year round!


    Want your dog to have a special treat while he’s resting in his room between playtimes? We offer two different yummy treats your dog is sure to enjoy! A PB Kong Toy is a rubber Kong toy filled with peanut butter and then frozen over-night. This makes for a nice cool treat that keeps your dog busy and entertained while negotiating out every last bit of peanut butter from its core. A Pupcicleis a large scoop of dog friendly ice cream, prefect for cooling down after playtime. All that playing is hard work!
