A Day in the Life
We have a very laid back but, structured daycare at the doggie den! Drop off is from 7am-9am and at 9am we all go out for our first potty break (we take the dogs out every hour to help keep dogs and pups house trained and eliminate accidents in the daycare area). After the potty break it's TIME FOR PLAY! All the balls and toys come out and the FUN begins!
Lunch time is about NOON (if your pup doesn't eat lunch, don't fret - he/she will just keep playing)! After lunch we encourage napping and relaxing between 1pm and 2pm and then it's time to PLAY, PLAY, PLAY again!
People start to come in and pick up their dogs and excitement sets in - every time the door opens they can't wait to see if it's their Mom or Dad coming to get them, so they can tell you all about the fun and exciting day they had at The Doggie Den!

Grooming the Doggie Den
Our full service salon takes pride in giving your pet the best care available, treating your pet as if he/she were our own. We offer hydrosurge bathing and only the best shampoos and conditioners for every coat care need. In addition to that our groomers specialize in hand scissoring! Being groomed regularly not only keeps your dog looking, smelling, and feeling great, it also helps us build a trusting relationship with your dog. Your dog´s grooming consists of a bath, brush out, nail clipping, ear cleaning, trim and of course bows!
Professional Pet Stylists
Our number one concern is your pet's well being. Our Professional Pet Stylists are certified by professional grooming schools and will do their best to satisfy your every need.
Dog Grooming Appointments
We offer appointments times on Tuesday through Saturday, throughout the morning and into the early afternoon. We regret that we cannot offer late afternoon, evening or Sunday appointments. Your beloved pet will only be staying with us for a few hours at best! We pride ourselves on the fact that your dog doesn´t have to stay here all day! We know how stressful a day at the grooming salon can be for some dogs and we get your pets in and out as soon as they are done!
Training your dog is the best thing you can do for yourself and him/her. A well-trained dog is welcome in many social situations such as family gatherings, vacations, kids' soccer games, and cookouts.
Classes and Private Lessons
We offer both group classes and private lessons. See course descriptions of what we cover in our classes; and check the table for current classes, dates and rates. If you need more information or just want to discuss your situation, call us and ask for Susan or Jennifer. Classes take place in the evening and cost $190 for 6 one-hour sessions.

Canine Wellness at the Doggie Den
Chiropractic therapy is the science of locating and correcting misalignments of the spine, called subluxations. Such misalignments cause the vertebrae to compress, which interferes with the nerves that travel from the spinal column throughout the body. At each vertebrae, nerves run from the spinal cord to specific organs and tissues of the body. These nerves then tell the tissues and organs how and when to operate.
Reiki (pronounced RAY KEY) is the channeling of universal life force energy to promote healing. A Japanese healing arts tradition, "Reiki" is made up of "Rei", which means "universal", referring to the spiritual dimension of the soul; and "ki", the life force energy that flows through all living things. Reiki is a laying on of hands healing technique. Thought to have originated with Tibetan Buddhists, it was rediscovered in Japan in the 1880´s by Dr. Mikao Usui. During a Reiki treatment, healing energy flows from the Universal Source, through the Reiki practitioner to the client. Reiki energy is by definition gentle, benign, and intelligent. It will go where it is most needed in the body to promote physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing.
