We will be completely closed from Thursday, January 25th through Sunday, January 28th for annual floor sealing weekend.
All pups must be picked up by 7:30pm on January 24th.
We will not be able to have any pups in our facility during this time.
We will re-open for Boarding and Daycare on Monday, January 29th.

Canine Cough/Virus Updates 1/3/24
This will hopefully be our last update regarding the mysterious virus, and we are happy to say that we have not had any new cases reported in several weeks. We believe this virus has made its way through our area and we are optimistic to finally be in the clear.
We’ve heard very little about new cases popping up in other parts of Denver, and the chatter about new cases has also dramatically dropped on social media around the country. However, there is still a slight chance new dogs or dogs that frequent other areas for socialization could still bring in the virus. We are continuing to do our best to screen all the new pups for symptoms and recent socialization prior to staying with us and have done well keeping it out of the building, along with continuing with our extreme cleaning protocols.
We’ve even seen a huge increase in activity at the local dog parks. To help ensure this doesn’t resurface again, we still recommend and request continuing to stay away from Dog Parks and socializing with pups that you don’t know their history.
If your pup does begin coughing, don’t panic. A few minor BORDETELLA cases have began to pop up, but this is not something you should be concerned about. The vaccine is required for pups in our care and those that do catch the bordetella strain are most likely to develop very minor symptoms, nothing like the long recovery time of this virus.
Pups with a lingering cough that have completed their antibiotics and are otherwise healthy are welcome to return. Typically, the lingering cough is due to lung inflammation from the virus, and there is no evidence of these pups being able to continue to spread it at this point.
While EXTREMELY rare, we’ve seen ONE case of a lingering cough remaining dormant in the body and randomly developing pneumonia weeks after the original diagnosis. Again, this is extremely rare, but worth noting to make sure to continue to monitor your pets if they have a lingering cough in case it does develop into further complications.
Please reach out to us anytime if you have any questions or concerns.
While we wait for our Daycare numbers to go back to normal, we are going to continue with our Saturday split hours for the time being. Assuming this should happen over the next few weeks, our goal is for Saturdays to go back to normal effective 2/3, after our construction closure.
However, if we get enough feedback of those committed to Saturday Daycare, we may be able to open it up sooner. We would LOVE to hear from you. Please send us an email or give us a call if you are needing and able to commit to Saturday Daycare!
Saturday Boarding drop-off and pick-up is still available during our open hours, and Boarding pups will still receive plenty of play time, but since we do leave the building for a short time during the day, we can’t commit to full-day Daycare.
Did your pup join us for Santa Photos? Print outs are available for pick-up during our open hours!
We still have some Halloween photos lingering too!
SURPRISE Photo Shoot – The Easter Bunny will be here this year! Stay tuned for more details.

Meet Louisa, our Tail Wagger of January! Lou-Lou (as we call her) is a 3-year-old Dachshund who has been joining us for Daycare a few times a week for about a year-and-a-half now! This cutie pie’s favorite Daycare past times are sunbathing and cuddling up in our arms for hugs and snuggles. Her best friend is her partner in crime Tailz, also a Dachshund.
Thank you Joanna for making Louisa a part of our pack!
