Dog Daycare in Historic Leawood & WestPort/West Plaza
Most dogs are social animals. They crave human interaction, socialization with other dogs, and need exercise. If you’re off at work; or busy at school, and your dog is home alone, they’re probably pretty bored. We are here to provide a fun, clean, safe, and cage-less environment for your dog to get the exercise and socialization they crave.
- Separate size and breed play N stay spaces.
- Different play N stay spaces for small, medium and large dogs at all locations.
- Fully staffed 24-hours a day.
- We oversee each play space – playing with the dogs, cleaning, interacting with the dogs (dog kisses), and using behavioral training techniques to keep the environment calm.
- Doggie Daycare Savings Passes that can save you money
- Convenient curb-side drop-off and pick-up.
- Clean floors and beds.
- Open-door crates if your dog wants some alone time.

BACK TO SCHOOL PHOTOSHOOTS
The pack is heading back to school! Every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the month of September, your pup can participate in our back-to-school themed photoshoots! Each pup who participates will take home a fun photo magnet for their paw-rents to hang proudly on their fridge. These sweet keepsakes are too cute to miss - book your daycare reservation today to join in on the fun! Additional fees may apply.
First Time at Dog Pawz?
If this is your first visit to Dog Pawz, you will need call your store location to schedule your free-trial assessment day. Free-trial assessment days can be scheduled for Monday – Thursday. Once we have entered your information into our system, you will have access to your online account and will be able to book daycare and boarding reservations online, as well as camera access.
Please bring in a copy of your pup's updated shot records (Rabies 1 year/Distemper 1 year/Bordetella 6 months) on your assessment day.
All pups must have a leather, nylon, or canvas collar on upon arrival. For safety reasons, please remove metal pinch collars, chain collars, spike collars, electric fence collars and harnesses. Dog Pawz is not responsible for damaged collars or flea collars.
For first-timers, we have a “New Dog Introduction Procedure”. We place your dog in a small area next to their designated play area so they can get use to the smells and sounds. Depending on the dog and the breed, the introduction period varies. We have found this technique helps with new anxiety jitters.
We also encourage half-day play days so your dog can get used to staying with us before they stay for an extended period of time. During this time, we are able to better understand your dog’s behavior and tendencies – making everyone comfortable and your dog’s stay with us safer.
Spay/Neuter Policy: We require dogs over 6 months of age to be spayed or neutered.
Required Vaccinations: Written proof from your veterinarian of current Rabies, DHLPPC, and Bordetella (every 6 months) are required for your dog to stay with us.
The Importance of Socialization
Proper socialization with other dogs and other humans is critical to having a happy, healthy, and well-adjusted pet. With so many people spending more time at home in 2020, your furry family member may now be home alone for long periods of the day for the first time in a while, and the stress of solitude may cause anti-social habits such as destructive chewing, persistent digging, excessive barking, or other signs of separation anxiety. Pets may also show signs of stress such as drooling, attempts to escape, and pacing.
If your pet is suffering from separation anxiety or simply the boredom of home isolation after many months of company, bring them to daycare with us! Daycare provides your loved one with the pack environment they are accustomed to, creating a trusted second home for your pet while you are away. Bringing your pup to daycare with us provides all the physical, mental, and social exercise your dog needs. Give us a call to learn more about the socialization benefits of daycare.
Thanks Dog Pawz for entertaining my puppy. This winter has been brutally cold and thanks to your amazing space – with lots of great dogs, my Shafer can play and socialize. Thanks for exhausting the little guy. We love you!
