Urban Out Sitters offers a healthy outlet for a dogs to socialize in a cage-free day care environment.
Socialized or Unsocialized:
Play groups range in size, consisting of small breeds, puppies, and larger breeds. We structure groups by size and chemistry - strategically placing a dog within the right setting to maximize better socialization. Every dog is tempermant tested to determine placement within either group. To enroll a dog into a cage-free day care enviornment they must be well-adjusted and non-aggressive.
Timid dogs are introduced at their own pace. In some cases it can take as long as two weeks to adjust to a new environment. We’ve experienced unsocialized dogs can become social, learn to behave, and even make friends. If a dog is not comfortable with other dogs or making progress, we’ll explain to the owner that a Day Care environment is simply not in their dog’s best interest and using our dog walking service becomes the ideal alternative.
-Puppy socialization, potty training, correct destructive behavior
-Adolescent socialization, exercising, playing, correct anti-social behavior
-Mature and Elderly socialization, stimulating and enriching quality of life

As soon as our doors open, many dogs arrive for day care pulling their way into our facility. Guests are ready to have a full day of play, stimulation and romping with playmates.There is always some form of activity in motion. Each dogs energy and play is different. Some run, wrestle, chase, snuggle, nap or simply hang out with friends and our staff.
Dogs are constantly supervised by a team of trained and experienced attendants. Their main responsibility is to watch play activity, monitor safety, and supply continuous access to drinking water. It is important for them to notate any abnormal behavior, digestive issues, early onset of illiness, changes in mood, or signs of fatigue. When we notice a change in one a dogs behavior, we will let the owner know of the situation.
With a constant cleaning regime within the facilities - every attendant knows the importance to keep a dog clean. They do body checks and brush outs so each dog is presentable to go home. We know that even the hardcore player has a bad fur day. A departure bath is available upon request at an additional cost. ($25/small or $35/large)
At the end of the day, our hope is your best friend will be tired from a day of activity. We are sure after a long day of work you will enjoy a more peaceful evening at home to unwind.
