GROOMING
Doggies Den has contracted with a local mobile groomer to provide services to our den mates. All grooming services require reservations and are only available while your dog is attending day care. Please call the Den for service availability and pricing.

FIELD TRIPS
For owners who really love to spoil their dog, we occasionally offer Field Trips to the Ridge Road or Black Hills doggie parks. This is a very special service for dogs that need to just let it all out and go wild. It's the perfect release for all dogs but sporting breeds will especially benefit from these outings.
There's something about being outside that makes the dogs especially frisky. From the moment they hit the dirt, it's non-stop running and playing. Trips are scheduled for midmornings, require reservations and are only available while your dog is attending day care. Please call the Den for service availability and pricing.

A TYPICAL DAY AT THE DEN:
Dogs may be dropped off anytime between 7 am and 10 am. Upon arrival, dogs are assigned a playgroup that best suits their size, temperament and play style. Just like humans, a dog’s temperament changes throughout the day, so our counselors will alternate playgroups as needed. The dogs get to romp in the play areas, chase balls and wrestle with friends. Each dog will be walked twice a day in the nearby park. During walks basic commands are used and each dog is given individual attention. For consistency in your dog’s schedule, we would be happy to feed or administer medication with food/medicine provided from home. After a full day of playing and attention at the den, your dog can be picked up anytime between 4 pm and 7 pm for a relaxing evening at home with their favorite human companion.
