Warm weather is upon us, and summer's impending arrival brings vacation plans. About four out of five American adults plan to travel over the summer. If you’re one of them, you might have mixed feelings. You are excited to travel and visit friends and family or faraway locales, but you might also be worried about your pup. Not all dogs enjoy travel, and not all travel destinations are pet-friendly. What is a would-be vacationer to do? Playful Pack is here to help. Our dog daycare and boarding services will help your dog feel right at home.

The Benefits of Playful Pack Dog Boarding

Boarding your pup at Playful Pack offers many benefits, including the peace of mind that comes with knowing your dog is in great hands. Our dog-loving staff is fully committed to high-quality care for canines. Your dog will enjoy physical and mental stimulation, interactive activities, and all the TLC they need to thrive.

Physical Activity and Fun Exercise

Playful Pack features expansive play areas. Many of our facilities offer both indoor and outdoor play areas. If, due to city ordinance, we’re unable to offer outdoor play, we ensure your pup has access to ample indoor space. Each indoor play area is specially designed to meet dogs’ specific needs with canine-friendly play equipment and sanitary flooring. We clean with only dog-safe cleaners to protect your pup. Our outdoor play areas also feature artificial turf for a familiar feel and easy-to-clean surface. Our staff keeps a close eye on our doggy friends to ensure that they’re safe, healthy, and happy.

Ever-Changing Daily Activities

During the day, our boarding guests can enjoy daycare and participate in all the same fun activities our other pups do. We change it up daily with morning and afternoon fun that can include everything from bacon bubbles to tunnels of fun. We vary our schedule from day to day and from week to week to keep things fun and stimulating and plan activities that engage multiple senses for better enrichment. When your dog needs downtime, they’ll have access to comfy couches and cots for a quick rest or snooze.

Personalized Care

No two dogs are alike, and at Playful Pack, we recognize your dog’s unique personality. We work with you to ensure their needs are properly met. Throughout their boarding stay, we’ll monitor them, note changes in behavior or appetite, weigh them, and more to give you the best picture of their well-being we can. We’ll administer oral medications as needed, and you are welcome to bring along your dog’s favorite toys, blankets, and more to help them feel more secure and comfortable while they stay with us. After daycare, your pup can retreat to their private cage-free suite where they can relax, enjoy a snack or meal, and get some much-needed rest. You can check in any time day or night via your own private webcam access link.

Playful Pack offers dog boarding throughout Northern Virginia and Maryland, and we’ve added a new facility in Charleston, SC. We welcome you to bring your dog by for a temperament evaluation before your planned trip so that they can get to know us a bit better, and you can, too! Contact us today to find out more!
