Call to ask about our PlayCare! 678-475-7100
If you've never heard of TDS doggie playcare (daycare), you are in for a real treat. There are so many benefits to enrolling puppies and dogs of all ages in our playcare program.
Young dogs learn valuable social skills which increase confidence and emotional security around other dogs, people, and life situations. It also helps those still working on their potty skills as we maintain a rigorous potty routine.
For adult dogs, maintaining social skills is just as important as learning them in the first place. We also include plenty of enrichment opportunities that promote calm behavior and a feeling of satisfaction and confidence.
Besides, playcare is just tons of doggone fun!
Dogs with extra energy find the outlet they need for all that extra "get up and go". When you get them home in the evening, they are happy to relax at your feet or lounge on the couch. No more nighttime zoomies!!
Is Your Dog Overweight?
Doggie Playcare is a great way to help your pudgy friend shed a few pounds. Instead of sleeping those long hours while you are away at work, they will be moving around, burning calories and having fun doing it.
Let Them Play All Day!
Don't be fooled by someone offering just daycare. Dogs that spend the day with us at The Dog Spot don't just sit it a crate all day and go out to potty a couple of times... they play and learn!!! Running, jumping, spinning, rolling, splashing fun along with brain games and enrichment activities all day long!
**Dogs must fill out an application and attend a meet-n-greet session prior to joining doggie playcare or scheduling a sleepover. Meet-n-greets last a minimum of 4 hours and cost $25. Meet-N-Greet's are by appointment only, M - F and cannot be done on the same day as a dog comes in for a sleepover.

Frequently asked questions
Group Play (Playcare)
Your dog will participate in a play session with other fun, friendly dogs their size and play style. This session lasts for approximately 30 minutes and is monitored by one of our Professional and loving Caretakers.
This fun activity includes a cardboard box filled with surprises such as peanut butter, yummy treats, and even a fun toy. These items are placed in a box, stuffed with an assortment of challenging items such as smaller boxes, newspaper, and paper towel or toilet paper tubes and then taped shut so your dog can rip, tear, and snuffle their way to finding their own yummy treats. The licking and foraging involved in this fun activity releases hormones that effectively calm and satisfy your dog assuring a feeling of calm and relaxation. Most dogs enjoy a nice long, restful nap after completing this activity.
Dinner in a Box
This fun activity is much the same as a party box but instead of just yummy treats and challenging items being placed in the box, we also place your dog’s dinner inside. We only provide these boxes for dinner as they are a fantastic way for your dog to use up their last bits of mental, emotional, and physical energy before heading out for their final potty of the night and then getting a great night’s sleep.
Nose Work Activity
This activity assures your dog uses their very specialized nose to find yummy treat which increases calming hormones and decreases stress hormones. We will customize the course to your dogs ability so they, succeed and have a blast. Whether they are novice and only using cups and paper plates or advanced and using our specialized equipment, they are assured to have a sniff-a-licious good time!
Confidence Work Activity
What dog couldn’t use an extra boost to their confidence? Choose this option and we will play games with your dog that offer your pup the opportunity to try something new, make a choice to move something, place their feet on a new surface, solve an access problem…all sorts of fun activities where your dog gets to try and SUCCEED! This is so much fun and the end result is a boost in confidence!
We have offered this option for many years and dogs LOVE it! Your dog will go on a special walk with one of our Caretakers, off property. We are fortunate to have areas around us with woods, a ravine, and plenty of sniffing opportunities. This option gives your dog a chance to stretch their legs and go somewhere where the sniffs and sights are new and fantastic! We also include on-leash manners work with this option by using choice sits as well as turn games to help your dog walk nicely while on leash.
One on One Playtime
This is another enrichment option we have offered for many years that the dogs LOVE! One of our Caretakers will play with your dog using their favorite activities. Fetch? No problem. Chasing water from the hose? We can do that! Running around the yard and playing on the play equipment? Ooooo, that’s fun! Whatever activities your dog enjoys will be combined with some impulse control work such as calm sits, wait work, and attention to work not only your dog’s body but their brain as well.
This is by far, is one of our Caretaker’s favorite enrichment activities. I’m not sure who is more enriched, our Caretaker or your pup. This is a special one on one time where your dog will receive massage, belly and ear rubs, and plenty of snuggles along with some easy, calming enrichment games that promote relaxation and emotional satisfaction. Truth be told, I have had to wake up a Caretaker from time to time who had fallen asleep snuggled up to the pup they were cuddling with.
