About our Day Care at Greenbelt Kennels

Day Care is available 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment Saturday and Sunday.


In day care your dog will enjoy supervised play with other dogs in spacious climate-controlled indoor/outdoor playrooms or a fenced outdoor play yard.  We maintain separate play groups for rowdy dogs, for gentler or timid dogs, and the smaller ones.  We offer all-day or half-day (any five-hour time span) programs.  All breeds and ages are welcome!


According to the "Dog Owner's Guide" dog day care got its start in California in 1987.  Dog day care got its start at this Clive kennel facility in 1998.  Some of those original day care "students" were still with us ten years later.  The Clive day care center provides toys for play, some "agility" objects for additional fun, and FUN TIME WITH staff members on a daily basis.


New dogs are only introduced into a group following a one-on-one setting with one of the long-term day care "student teachers" to see how they interact.  After compatibility has been established, the new dog may join a small group of four or five compatible dogs and then only with "human" supervision.
