We are a family run business. We use our home as a home for your dog...for the day or for an extended time. Donna has over 20 years of experience working with dogs. She has trained with a variety of nationally known trainers including Cesar Millan of the popular "Dog Whisperer" series and she continually updates her skills.
We have worked hard to create a wonderful experience for your dog. Physically, the space is safe, spacious, and fun for your pet. We tend to their mental needs with lots of games and stimulation. We address their emotional needs with 1:1 caring and affection from our staff as well as a structured environment to increase the dog's abilities to socialize with other dogs. We focus on reinforcing your pet's positive behavior. Basic dog training skills of healthy boundaries and socialization are stressed.
Our small staff of professional individuals have both the experience and the love to make sure your dog's stay with us is exceptional ~ and that they want to return! Adult sons Torrey and Bryce visit frequently and always enjoy sharing in the care and play time of your pet!
Our home has been customized with your dog in mind! Our "dog room" has cots and crates for each dog, play toys, and other things to make them feel at home. Large dogs are separated from the smaller or special needs dogs. We also have three separately fenced yards full of play toys where your dog is constantly supervised! Numerous happy customers have referred to our home as a "doggy disneyland."

Riley's home away from home!
"Donna has taken care of Riley since he was a puppy. He is overjoyed in the car as we approach her house....I can tell how he loves his time there! He receives the best of personal care from Donna and her staff!"
Doreen Blumenfeld, Riley's owner
"This is a vey 'homey' environment for my dogs and they walk in happy with their tails wagging. My dogs always come home better behaved too!"
"My dog spent over a year in the shelter before we adopted him. He was stresssed and in need of rehabilitation. After socializing him at Stay and Play he became very well balanced and much happier and payful."

I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give uncondtional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive.
