When you walk in the door after a hard day at work, does your pet demand your attention and not give you a moments rest? Your dog may be trying to tell you, “I’m bored!” Without something constructive to do when you leave home, your dog will eventually find some source of entertainment!! And odds are... it won’t be something that is very entertaining to you!
Red Fern Pet Lodge’s daycare is a fun experience for all dogs – we tailor each day to meet the needs of dogs; focusing on enrichment whether for fun, exercise or socialization. Our group options offer safe interactions and are led by our knowledgeable staff. Each group of like sized dogs rotate through different paddocks and indoor play areas so your dog will never get bored.

Meet & Greet
To get started at Red Fern we'd love to setup a Meet and Greet!
A Meet & Greet is designed for dogs who are interested in group play. If you are not interested in group play for your dog, we would still love to give you a tour of our facility and discuss other additional activities we offer.
During your Meet and Greet, we will take you on a tour of our facility (5-10 minutes) and introduce your dog to others to observe their temperament. We recommend leaving your dog with us for 2-3 hours. This will give us time to observe how they do in group play and introduce them to our inside containments.
1. Must be at least 4 months of age.
2. Must be spayed/neutered to be in group play.
3. Must be up-to-date on all required vaccinations.
Required vaccinations: Rabies, bordetella, and distemper/parvovirus.
We highly recommend the 6 month bordetella (kennel cough) booster and influenza vaccination.
4. Must be on monthly heart worm & flee/tick preventatives. We do not allow flea/tick collars in group play.
Note: We do not accept human-aggressive dogs or dogs with a bite record.
Once you complete your New Customer Registration above, we will contact you to schedule your Meet and Greet. We will need your dog's vaccinations uploaded to your portal or emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to their Meet and Greet.
