Doggy Day Care

animal hospital Kearney vet

A tired dog is a good dog!

Human lives are busy and often this means our dogs are left alone. Instead of seeing a sad face as you walk out the door in the morning, pack your pup in the car and head for The Retreat. We designed our large play area for safe, clean, enjoyable fun!

Dogs left home alone during the day may exhibit destructive behavior such as chewing and barking. Some dogs even suffer from separation anxiety. Proper exercise and stimulation through daycare will turn your dog into a much happier and healthier member of the family.

Dogs of all ages, sizes and personalities are welcome. Most dogs love spending the day playing with similar sized furry friends, however some would rather watch from the sidelines or play with one of our guest assistants. We take the cues from the dogs and do what is best for them.

Some dogs come every day while others come a few times a week or even a month. Whatever your schedule allows will greatly benefit both you and your dog.
