Quite possibly the world’s happiest dog hangout. (Or so we hear from equally happy pup parents.)
Taking our cues from owners Barbara Roth and Al Baumgartner, we’ve created an exceptionally caring, joy-filled place where dogs have the freedom to play, rest and interact with other pups at their own pace – so you won’t find any kennels or rigid schedule in place. We stay close and watch ‘em zip around ’til their ears flap back (if they’ve got those kinds of ears) – and we make sure they’re fed and loved and kept safe while they play. A Puptown dog is a blissfully happy, thoroughly-exhausted-by-the-end-of-the-day dog.
Freedom to run around,
plus care and attention galore.
Schedule a day to come see why Puptown ranks way at the tippy-top of local dogs’ list of Favorite Places To Go. (We know dogs don’t make “favorite” lists, but if they did, we’d be up there). We group our pups with others who have similar play styles, and keep a watchful eye to make sure they’re all in a good groove and loving every minute of their time here.

Feeding, Medications and Orientations
FOOD - To make sure your dog gets the right food on the right schedule, please bring it along, marked with dog’s name, the amount for each meal (in Cups), and number of meals each day. We recommend including a little extra in case all the activity over here leaves your dog more ravenous than usual, and so we have enough if there’s a delay in your pick-up plans.
MEDICATIONS - Please provide all medication needs, in the original packaging from the vet with clear dosage instructions. We welcome a call in advance to review medications, to ensure instructions are clearly indicated ahead of Boarding drop-off.
ORIENTATIONS - Before scheduling a new dog for PlayCare or Boarding we require an Orientation, which is complementary on first visit. This gives dogs and staff a chance to get familiar with each other and helps to ensure our facility is a good fit for your dog's personality.
Welcome Back Days (Re-Evaluation) work simularly, but are for dogs who haven’t been here recently and are charged at the half-day daycare rate for this visit. For comfort & safety, we require a full day of play prior to a Boarding reservation if your dog has not been here for Playcare or Boarding within 2 months of the reservation arrival date during peak boarding times (holidays & school breaks), or within 6 months during non-peak boarding times.
WHY - It helps ensure us (both!) that your dog is still comfortable in the group setting. Plus, it gives our staff the chance to get reacquainted with your dog. It also reassures dogs that they will be picked up, so they don’t feel anxious when you drop them off for their actual boarding stay here at PupTown.
Standard full-day Playcare charges apply to Welcome Back Days.
We’re staffed 24/7/365 with caring, pup-obsessed humans who make our dogs their top priority while here.
Overnight accommodations include the works:
Your pup can join in on all the Playcare fun and activities, and count on extra hugs and attention before getting tucked in for the night.
Our sleep rooms are equipped with top-of-the-line dog beds, cozy fleece blankets and temperature-controlled environment keeps pups comfy so they get a solid night of Z’s.
Monday – Friday: 6:30 AM – Noon
Saturday – Sunday: 8:00 AM – Noon
For the safety and benefit of all our guests, boarding
dogs must check in no later than NOON.
Boarding checkout is by Noon on the last day of the stay.
Checkout is available up to 7:00 PM and will have an
extended-stay charge of $23, applied.
1 to 7 Night Stay $64 per night
8 to 14 Night Stay $60 per night
15 or more Night Stay $56 per night
There is a 15% discount for each additional dog from the same household.
All prices are pre-tax.
Dogs with toenails not acceptable for a group play
environment will be trimmed for $21.
Dogs obviously come in all sizes and fur-types, so prices vary. When you call, we can give you an estimate for the services you’re requesting. Then when you come in, our groomer will meet your dog, assess the condition of the coat and chat through what you’d like to have done. At that point, we can give you final pricing. We take copious notes, so for your next appointment, we can reference previous visits since we’ve got a starting point. That said, you can always switch things up if you’re feeling inspired.
Full Service Groom
Includes Bath, Conditioner, Brushing, Nail Trim &
Nail Grind, Ear Cleaning, and Haircut.
Includes Bath, Conditioner, Brushing, Nail Trim &
Nail Grind, Ear Cleaning (no Haircut).
We also offer nail trim & grind, de-shedding packages, and basic baths. If you wish to have a staff bath, please feel free to request one - we will determine if we can provide that upon request, but it may depend on staff/dog ratios on that day. We only use high-quality shampoos and conditioners which are coat and eye-friendly. We have the option of using high-speed hand dryers and non-heated cage dryers so we can select the drying service
based on your dog's comfort.
Proof of current rabies vaccination is required for grooming services.
Puptown Essentials. Our pet parent go-to guide.
Which vaccinations we require and why.
In our effort to provide a safe environment for all dogs, we ask that all dogs visiting for Playcare or Boarding have current Rabies, Distemper (DHPP) and Bordetella vaccines. All vaccines need to be administered at least 7 days BEFORE your dog’s first visit to Puptown. For Grooming-only appointments, we only require a current rabies vaccine.
How our complimentary Orientation works.
It’s important to know your pup will be happy here in our kennel-free, open-play environment. So before you register for a Playcare or Boarding visit, we ask that you sign up for an Orientation day.
Orientation days are available by reservation only, Monday through Friday mornings. Call to schedule at 763-478-0203.
Pups over 1 year of age must be spayed or neutered. Dogs must have toenails acceptable for group setting play. All required vaccinations must be current (see vaccine section above). We’ll also ask that your Registration Forms be completed prior to arrival.
Book a Welcome Back Day prior to Boarding if it’s been a while since your pup was here last.
For comfort and safety reasons, we require a full day of play prior to your Boarding reservation if your dog has not joined us for Playcare or overnight Boarding within 2 months of the reservation arrival date during peak boarding times (holidays and school breaks), or within 6 months during non-peak boarding times.
Why? It helps ensure us (both!) that your dog is still comfortable in the group setting here. Plus, it gives our staff the chance to get reacquainted with your dog. It also reassures dogs that they will be picked up, so they don’t feel anxious when you drop them off for a longer boarding stay.
Standard full-day Playcare charges apply for the Welcome Back Day.
Details on food and medications.
Your pup’s schedule will include feeding and administration of any medications needed. Food can be dry, wet/canned, refrigerated or frozen. Please label the food with your dog’s name, the amount for each meal (in cups), and number of meals each day. We recommend including a little extra in case all the activity over here leaves your dog more ravenous than usual, and so we have enough if there’s a delay in your pick-up plans. Don’t worry about measuring scoops or bowls, we’ve got all that covered. And we sanitize everything between feedings.
Please also include any medications your dog may need, in the original packaging from the vet with clear dosage instructions. We will store and administer both oral and injectable medications as directed.
Hope to see you soon!

Basic Manners Class - TBD
This is a 6 week class designed for dogs with no previous formal training. We use positive reinforcement training techniques to teach the dogs to sit, down, stay, come, leave it, focus, settle, touch as well as how to walk nicely on leash (no pulling) and greet people and other dogs politely.
This is a great training launch for dogs’ ages 10 weeks +.
Prerequisite: Friendly dogs who have current vaccines appropriate for their age.
