Fetch Club


Welcome to our enrichment daycare! This level of structured small group play was developed for dogs that thrive in smaller social settings or struggle navigating their own arousal levels in a typical large group play environment. Fetch Club works to meet both the physical & mental needs of your dog with plenty of rest & relaxation periods between exercises & activities. Each dog is sent home with a Ruff Report to give a direct recap of their day to their parents!
