The Care Your Pet Deserves

Dawg Tired offers a variety of services that are sure to delight both you and your dog. Whether your furry friend needs to burn off excess energy or needs a safe place to stay when you're out of town, we have you covered!

Play Days

Here at Dawg Tired we refer to "Doggy Daycare" as "Play Days". Drop your dogs off for their Play Days or let us pick them up on our one-of-a-kind, safety equipped Doggie bus!


We offer short and long term boarding. All guest suites have radiant heated floors, are fully secured and come with their own raised bed. Pups enjoy free participation in Play Days!


Does your pooch need a little extra pampering at the doggie spa? We offer grooming services from head to toe. Bring your pup in for a bath, blow dry, brush, and nail trim today!

Bark N' Ride Transportation

One thing that makes Dawg Tired unique is our one-of-a-kind Bark N' Ride program! As safety is always our number one concern, our bus features secure built-in kennels and doggie seatbelts. Large dogs must provide their own harness in order to properly attach to seatbelts. Try this service out today, we are always happy to pick your pup up when you aren't able to!
