More Space Our 12 acres of woods, fields and a creek give dogs plenty of space to run and splash. We only accept club member dogs for boarding and the sum total of our boarding, day care and training dogs on a given day has to fit into our play and training room and the limited space we have there. Weather permitting dogs spend large amounts of their day off leash outside in varying environments and are ready to rest when they go indoors. The multiple fenced areas around our club house make it easy for us to select appropriate environments for the group of dogs we are working with. The dogs in training can rotate: next to, into and away from the larger group as is appropriate. We try to use all of our space as much as we can. We like to take our groups of dogs on long walks that make stops at the various popular creek play areas. The dogs learn to follow the group but they are able to run, splash and play in the greater part of the park.
One Price We have never cared for the practice of charging for a long list of extras that run the price for boarding or daycare much higher than clients might expect. Walks, treats, swimming, play time indoors/outdoors with other dogs and people, playing with: water from the hose, safe bones, safe toys...and whatever else we come up with to entertain your dog and improve it's behavior are all included in our one listed price. We don't know of any place that provides more real, constructive activity for client dogs all included in the list price.
More Activities We are serious about providing healthy, educational and entertaining activities for our boarding, day care and training dogs. Since our canine guests are in supervised environments, we can provide hard bones and appropriate toys. We don't employ "dog walkers" or "sitters". All the dogs in our care are handled and supervised by experienced dog trainers who are constantly working to improve each dogs ability to interact in healthy, social activities. We teach all the dogs to move and interact as a group with other dogs and people. We take large groups of dogs on off leash "field trips" through maintained fields and woods. Our main trail runs along a creek bank with access points where the dogs can run through and swim in water. Even dogs who are not used to being in or around water typically catch on after a visit or two and jump right in. Although all these activities are entertaining they also serve to open new horizons and produce solid canine citizens. Many of our clients tell us that after spending time at WolfBrook their dogs go home and put themselves to bed. Like Home We don't place dogs in isolation and leave them there. Boarding, daycare and training dogs are loose off leash indoors and out for large parts of the day. Dogs who have a recall and appropriate social skills get to go on off leash walks and play in the creek, weather permitting. Our boarding and daycare dogs are with familiar dogs and people in a social atmosphere that is conducive to plenty of exercise and social opportunity.
