Dogtopia of Madison West offers off-leash, open-play dog daycare for dogs of all sizes, breeds and temperaments. Our customers appreciate our clean facility, professional and loving caregivers, and our focus on healthy socialization and fun exercise.
Before your dog begins daycare (or boarding) with us, you’ll need to schedule a Meet & Greet Evaluation (temperament assessment) facilitated by one of our certified staff. This meeting will give us a chance to meet your pup and learn whether or not they will enjoy our enclosed, large group, open-play environment and which playgroup they will best succeed in. Don’t be surprised if we observe behaviors during the evaluation that you don’t see from your dog in other social environments! This is nothing to be concerned about; different environments can illicit different behaviors.
Your dog’s safety and comfort are important to us, which is why we practice only the most modern dog-care skills and apply our dog language, dog behavior and group play knowledge to supervise healthy play among the dogs. We utilize techniques that are founded in positive reinforcement and the science of how dogs learn. We pair your dog with like-minded friends who share similar play styles and personalities, creating a play environment that is fun and safe. We review playgroups daily as dogs may transition playrooms as their playstyles change and develop with age and experience. All of our active playrooms are supervised by well-trained, loving caregivers. Our Canine Coaches act as chaperones and educators to help facilitate healthy play and develop healthy behaviors.
Between our indoor and outdoor play areas, Dogtopia of Madison West has over 6,030 square feet of space for your dog to run, jump, sniff and have a fun time with their new friends! Our facility boasts three large, sunny, temperature-controlled indoor playrooms complete with doggy play equipment, bubble machines, and trained caregivers. Each indoor playroom has compressed rubber flooring that is designed to more sanitary and to be gentle on a dogs’ paws, hips and joints. Our location also comes equipped with two large outdoor playgrounds complete with clean, drainable turf, shade in the summer, splash pools and play equipment. Doggie turf is hypoallergenic, sanitary, and a safer alternative to concrete, grass, and pea gravel.
