why choose Daycare?

We all wish we could stay home with our pets 24/7. But in today's busy world that just isn't possible. Some pets don't mind hanging out home alone but others are social butterflies who'd love to spend their time romping and playing with their furry pals.

We provide an active environment where your dog can play their heart out while interacting with compatible playmates. Our attentive staff is always present to control the level of energy and mitigate any negative behaviors. Daycare at North Shore Dog supports your dog learning new social skills, appropriate play behaviors and can help them gain confidence. Plus they will be nice and tired when they come home!

What will my dog's day look like?


We offer full day and half day sessions. Dogs are welcome to stay as long or as short as they like! If we notice your pup seems tired or over-stimulated we may send them to a quiet room for a short nap.


Weekday Schedule

  • 6:30 AM – 12PM: Play time! Fetch balls, chase friends, or lounge on the playsets.

  • 12 PM – 2 PM: Lunch & nap time. Recharge those batteries for more afternoon fun! We are closed for drop off & pickup during this time.

  • 2 PM– 7 PM: Afternoon play time. Sniff-up a new friend or two!


Daycare Requirements

We want your dog to have fun at North Shore Dog, but we also want everyone to be safe. That is why we require a behavioral evaluation, trial day, and proof of vaccinations for all new dogs.

Behavioral Evaluation

This will allow us to determine if your dog has acceptable play & socialization skills and that they are able to take basic direction from the North Shore Dog staff.


free Trial Day

Once your dog has passed their evaluation they will be asked to complete a free trial day. This can be done the same day as the eval. A trial day gives your dog more time to settle-in, and it provides us the opportunity to get to know your dog more closely. Book your free trial now!

If you are considering us for either daycare or boarding, please make sure your pet meets our basic requirements:

  • All dogs or cats must be at least 3 months old

  • All dogs & cats over 7 months old must be spayed or neutered (no exceptions)

  • Required vaccinations for dogs: Rabies, Distemper/Parvo* & Kennel Cough (we accept titers for Distemper/Parvo)

  • For cats: FVRCP

We require all dogs to be vaccinated for kennel cough (bordetella) annually. The vaccine can take up to 14 days to become effective. During that time your dog cannot visit with us.
