Animal Activities

We want you to be assured that your pet will have a great time when they stay with us! We offer a variety of options for activities to keep our guests entertained for the length of their visit. Our activities include:

Pet Boarding in Shrewsbury: Dogs Playing Fetch

Playtime with your Pet

All of our guests will be able to participate in play time three times a day. Our specially trained staff will take care of your pet during their play time, giving them undivided personal attention. Activities can include active play such as playing ball or fetch, or cuddle time. Your pet may want to just snuggle with one of our staff!

Pet Boarding in Shrewsbury: Group of Dogs Playing Outside

Group Play

Does your dog like to make friends and play with others? We offer group play that is supervised by one or more of our staff members. If your dog is social around other dogs, they will be able to participate in this fun activity. Please note that for the safety of your pet and others, dogs that show signs of aggression and inability to play well with others will be excluded from group play activities.

Pet Boarding in Shrewsbury: Dogs Running Outside

Outdoor Time

After your pet has enjoyed one-on-one time or just finished playing with friends, they will be given the opportunity to spend a portion of their time in a large outdoor run. This enables them to get some fresh air and just run around. The time of day and length of playtime will vary based on the season and weather conditions because your pet’s health and safety is our biggest concern.
