  • Whether its day care or training needed, this staff is the best. I've used trainers in California, Alaska, Illinois, and others in Missouri, and Ouniel is by far the best. It's also obvious that his staff loves what they do; its comforting to know I'm leaving my dogs with people who have their best interest at heart and will take good care of them.

  • Our dog Shelby is dog challenged and she has been doing so much better since we started training her with K9 carnival! We used to not be able to take her anywhere with us and now we can take her anywhere without worrying!

Dog Daycare

image_2K9 Athletic Club is more than a pet sitter. We are a community-based business serving dog owners that enjoy their pets. We offer Daycare, Training, Boarding, and Grooming with a full range of activities. K9 Athletic Club has 5000 square feet of climate controlled indoor play space divided into several different open areas including outdoor space. Our goal is to accommodate the widest range of dog personalities and activity levels possible within our play groups. Our Doggie Daycare staff will ensure that your dog is not only cared for but also that they  get much needed exercise and socialization. We personally evaluate each dog's temperament prior to introducing them to their daycare pack. Playtime sessions are monitored by our professional staff to insure your dogs absolute safety.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can all dogs go to Daycare?

The vast majority of dogs can go to Daycare with no trouble but there are rare exceptions.  Some dogs develop bad habits after being excluded from dog to dog interaction. In addition, some dogs are inherently over-aggressive.

What if my dog is aggressive?

All is not lost if your dog has developed bad social habits.  More often than not, we find that most pets respond well with adequate training. During your dog's temperament test we will discuss any behavioral concerns with you and , if necessary provide you with professional training options. We have had great success with all sorts of dogs!

How will my dog respond to training?

Most dogs respond very well to training. These pets often do well once properly exposed to Daycare at K9 Athletic Club.  But on rare occasions dogs can have dominant and aggressive personalities. For the safety of our staff and guests we cannot allow overly aggressive dogs to interact with others unless we provide the proper behavioral training. If the aggression is limited only to other dogs we will offer individual play sessions with our staff.
 
How long do dogs play?

It is our goal to have your dog playing with others most of the day.  The amount of time your pet is in supervised group play will depend upon your dog’s familiarity with group play. Most dogs dive right in to group play with excitement and enthusiasm.  But every dog is different.  Some pets must be slowly introduced into group play.  Our expert staff will carefully evaluate your pet and adjust the time your pet spends in group play to maximize your pet’s fun.

How will you introduce my dog to the others?

Groups of pets take on a life of their own.  Our professional staff has learned from experience how best to introduce a new dog to their social group.  We have learned what to watch for when dogs interact and how best to supervise these interactions. The result is an overwhelming positive experience for our Daycare guests. 

Will my pet get injured playing with other dogs?

Even in the best supervised environment dogs play hard.  Just like children, dogs will occasionally get minor cuts and scrapes from rough play. Our experience has been that injuries are rare and typically minor?
