Activities

Components of a JOYFUL DAY:

-Time to Run
-Time to Learn
​-Time to Rest

-Time to Play


TIME TO RUN:  First things, first; your dog needs to burn off some of that excess energy!  We'll be sure to encourage them to lead a healthy lifestyle by identifying their preferred method of exercise and encouraging them to  stay active.  


TIME TO LEARN:  Your dog's new teachers know that the sky's the limit when it comes to positive reinforcement training.  Each dog will spend one-on-one time with a trainer each day, working on mastering old skills and learning new commands.  


TIME TO REST:  Depending on your dog's age and activity level, they may or may not take us up on our offer for some quiet downtime!  You can be assured, though, that they will always have a place to enjoy a nap if they're willing to close their eyes!  


TIME TO PLAY:  Building good social skills is one of the greatest advantages of Doggie Daycare, and the teachers at A Joyful Dog are ready to assist in that education.  While monitoring our playgroups, we will positively reinforce good play and we will intervene and correct play that is less than polite.  Your dog will learn that standing on their friends' heads, pinning their friends, and biting their friends' tails is considered rude in the Doggie world; and they'll learn it all while PLAYING!  












Accommodations

At a Joyful Dog, we want each dog to be comfortable, regardless of size, age, or play style.  With three separate indoor areas, and three separate outdoor areas, your four-legged friend will always be able to find the exact right spot for themselves.
