Green Valley K9 is a full service daycare that is focused on safe productive play times while giving your dog the best day, every day!
Daycare is a great way to give your dog mental stimulation and exercise while you are busy during the work day.
What is my dog's day like?
Upon arrival, pups are brought back to their suite while our kennel staff separates them into their group! There are 3 different options for what type of group your pup will join.*
Our playgroups consist of 5-10 other dogs who are similar in size, energy level, and play style.
Green Valley K9 typically runs 7-10 playgroups through out the day, monitored by our experienced staff. Groups are rotated through our four natural grass yards, indoor playroom, or our all-season indoor pool. Groups rotate every 20-30 minutes, which we run throughout the whole day. Every dog gets plenty of rest with fresh water while other groups are out.
*All groups are created and based on behaviors that are observed by kennel staff. Please know that your dog may act differently here than they do with you. They may have off days or moods that fluctuate and groups may change as they do.
*Socialization is never guaranteed.
We require all dogs participating in group play to exhibit friendly acceptable behaviors. If your dog displays negative body language, rough play, or repeated mounting, they may be pulled from group either permanently or for the day. This will always be at the discretion of kennel staff. If the staff observes any changes in behavior, we will always keep owners up-to-date.
Your dog's first day
We accept all new dogs through a pre-approval application process. The application is available here on the website. The application helps us find dogs that will excel in the environment we offer.
All new dogs are required to attend a first day of daycare to get to know our staff and our facility. Your dog's first day with us is designed to be low pressure and taken slowly. On a first day of daycare, each dog will meet our staff members prior to being introduced to other dogs. Once we see your dog is comfortable with the kennel staff, we will introduce them to a playgroup! Playgroups are determined by size and temperament. During group introduction, your dog will first be introduced to one well-mannered selected by kennel management. All new introductions are done on-leash for safety purposes. If the new dog exhibits friendly body language with their first friend, we will continue to add dogs into the playgroup until the new dog is fully introduced to their group! We take new introductions to group slowly to promote and encourage dogs to feel comfortable in their new playgroup.
You will receive a report card to your online account with photos and feedback on your dog's first day.
Please Note: GVK9 Management staff reserves the right to dismiss any dog due to concerning behavioral issues at any time.
Vaccines are required BEFORE your dog comes in for their first day.
Any dog who does not have updated vaccines are not allowed into the facility for services.

*Owners are responsible for keeping dogs up to date on all shots and providing updated records as needed.
Due to high demand, we are putting a temporary hold on our application process for daycare, boarding, and grooming services. We will update the website when space becomes available. Thank you for your understanding
