Our Competitors Aren’t Doing it Right - How Our Doggie Day Care is Different -

dog day care
Animal Hospital of Rowlett offers Doggie Day Care Monday through Friday with half-day and full-day options available. View the Rowlett Doggie Day Care options available.

Our Animal Hospital of Rowlett Doggie Day Care provides your dog with:
  • Lots of love from pet lovers all day long
  • Activities designed to stimulate their mind
  • Refreshers on basic obedience sit, stay, "no jump", etc.
  • Daily exercise walks and socialization with other dogs
The first thing you’ll notice with our specialized Doggie Day Care is that we do it differently than our competitors.

While many facilities let all the day care dogs play together with no individual assessment and very little supervision, we only let your dog play with our well-behaved resident animals... not with every other dog who is attending day care. One of the biggest complaints from customers of Doggie Day Care facilities is that their dog was intimidated by all the hyper-active, aggressive dogs or became injured while playing with a much larger dog.

That doesn’t happen here because the number of animals playing together at our Doggie Day Care facility at any given time is limited. Your pet is sure to have a fun, energy-burning day with ONLY dogs who have been thoroughly tested for aggressive tendencies. For instance, Stone is Dr. Downes’ career-change Labrador Retriever from the Guide Dogs for the Blind program, Sheldon is Dr. Clary's personal Labrador Retriever, Maggie is a certified Pet Partner therapy dog, and Bo is attending obedience and dog training courses with Valerie Fry, our dog trainer.

Therapy Dog Stone Administers Weekly Therapy to Long-term Care Facilities

Animal Hospital of Rowlett's registered therapy dog Stone, administering therapy like only a therapy animal can. Here, Jerry calls Stone up into the bed and naturally, Stone is pleased to oblige.

Very satisfying to hear that the facility residents cherish the visits and even plan their week around Stone and Maggie paying them a visit.

Stone was career-changed from Guide Dogs for the Blind due to a medical problem but has since become a Guide Dog Ambassador and has obtained his therapy animal certification from Pet Partners.

Low Stress Nail Trim Appointments

One of the worst things for a pet to experience while at the vet’s office is to have a bad experience. They will remember it forever and always dread coming in.

That’s why we try to make every visit to Animal Hospital of Rowlett and Animal Hospital of Heath a fun, enjoyable experience for your pet.

For, instance, here are some pics of Pacino having his nails trimmed. As a means of distraction we gave him some squirt cheese while the nurse trimmed his nails. Pacino obviously had a ball with the cheese and never even knew he was being trimmed. In fact, he didn’t want to leave the clinic!
