The Animals' House is your pet's home away from home.


The Animals' House provides complete, preferred, quality, and convenient dog daycare, boarding and training services. Our programs include dog daycare, overnight boarding, obedience training, agility classes, dog bootcamp, mid-day dog walking, and a variety of specialized and diverse dog training courses. Our highly trained and professional staff members pride themselves in providing the best possible care and attention to both our canine and human clients.


We are focused on the everyday needs of caring animal owners and their companions. Unfortunately, caring animal owners often do not have the time throughout the workweek to adequately provide a healthy lifestyle for their companions. The Animals' House solves this dilemma by providing dog daycare throughout the workday, and training and educational services during the evenings. Our facility is conveniently located and staffed with professionals with many years' experience. We offer a variety of programs that foster strong relationships between dog owners and their companions. 

COVID-19 Updates

March 31, 2020

     We understand the growing concern surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) across our community, and our hearts go out to all those who have been impacted. The Animals’ House is working hard to ensure we’re able to provide the services you need, and to keep our clients, staff, and the pets we love healthy and safe.

     In order to maintain a clean and sanitized facility, The Animals’ House has committed to increased cleaning frequencies throughout the day, including cleaning and disinfecting all kennels, play areas, toys, play structures and all client areas. The disinfectant used regularly throughout the facility does kill coronavirus. We are also committed to ensuring our staff is practicing the recommended precautions, including staying home in the event of any illness.

     As this situation continues to evolve quickly, we will be closely monitoring recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and other public health agencies to determine the safest course of action for all staff and clients.


     Based on current guidance (we are considered an essential business) and our own standards and practices, we remain open for business and are committed to providing an outstanding experience for you and your pets.


     To date, there is no evidence that companion animals or pets can spread COVID-19 (per CDC guidance). For the latest information about coronavirus and pets, we encourage you to visit the links below:

     As always, The Animals’ House remains dedicated to serving our clients and providing the best care for dogs. We thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a part of your family, particularly during these challenging times, and look forward to seeing you soon!
