Your dog stays at the beautiful DogJoy ranch, a fun alternative to your typical boarding kennel, while your dog’s trainer focuses on the commands that are important to improving your dog’s overall conduct, including common behavior issues. Your dog will become the trainer’s new best friend, accompany them around the facility during training sessions, eat lunch together on occasion, and use every outing on the property as a training opportunity to learn the skills it takes to be the perfect canine good citizen.

We have several program options to choose from so that you can reach your desired training goals.  This one-on-one instruction gives your dog consistent individual attention throughout the day, which enables us to reach your goals in a much shorter period of time.

An initial consultation with your trainer is required before scheduling Boarding School. Pricing is based on the type of training needed and the length of stay, which is determined by what your training goals are and your dog’s current training abilities. Each level also includes an exit lesson (usually taking between one to two hours) with you, the owner, to make sure you understand the commands and how to communicate them to your dog. Follow up lessons are also included with each program. This is very important for a successful transition of skills to you and your home.

Space is limited and must be scheduled in advance.

Dogs under six months, and those not house trained, may be charged an additional fee.

DogJoy is unlike any other boarding or daycare facility. We focus on dogs being active, mentally and physically stimulated, and having fun in a group environment where they are able to listen reliably to a person regardless of the dogs around them. Dogs run free with structure at DogJoy. We implement a daily manners reinforcement program so that your dog will learn to focus and respond to humans around distractions.  Your dog will come home better behaved for having stayed with us.

Dog-friendly dogs will spend time in play groups with staff members and other dogs, either outside in our amazing play yards (weather permitting) or in the Lodge’s air-conditioned Great Room. The Great Room is also a great place for lounging on a comfy dog bed or catching up on the latest DogJoy happenings.

We also provide lots of toys in our yards to play with (when safe to do so), so rest assured that your companion will never get bored. During the warmer months, splash pools are provided for those wishing to cool down.  Have a water-loving pup?  You can even request that your dog be a member at our ‘Splash and Play Park’ during their stay, where your dog can play on the splash pad, hang out at the beach entry swimming lagoon or swim their heart out at the deep end!

When it’s mid-day nap time or nighttime your dog gets to relax in the lodge, in their own air-conditioned room. During the day, between play sessions outside with friends, they will also get rest time in their lodge room with access to their own private patio with mini-yard, shall they decide to relax outside on the “grass” instead.

Your dog won’t be subjected to the constant barking, excessive time in kennels, and cold cinder block runs of a typical boarding kennel here. We believe that dogs will be much happier and come home much healthier if they stay in a happy, fun, stress-free, home-like environment while you are away. Don’t feel guilty about leaving your furry friend behind because chances are he’ll have more fun than you will!

Every room has it’s own private patio and mini yard attached.
