When we were looking for a truly high-quality dog daycare, we couldn't find one - so we realized we'd have to create that experience ourselves!
Our goal is to provide busy pet parents out there (like us!) with a
low-lift, worry-free, truly premium dog daycare.
But we are not just a place for dogs to stay and play.
We provide the best quality of care possible. That's why all of our guests enjoy our premium benefits. We're crafting experiences that are educational, intentional and deliberate.
Dogs leave Sterling K-9 Retreat happy-tired - not exhausted. Better trained - not with new bad habits. Safe and sound - not fresh from a scuffle. And most importantly - ready to relax and spend quality time with you at home!
We offer today’s companion dog more than an average life.
We owe it to them.
Our Best Friends Deserve the Best.
All of our Dog Daycare & Dog Boarding Guests Receive:
We aim to provide the highest quality dog care in Westerville Ohio! We treat your companions like guests at a 5-star resort nstead of doggone exhausted.
Our deluxe doggy daycare staff are trained to enrich your pup while they stay, and our facilities feature luxurious enclosures, small group play, basic training, grooming, and much more - all from our fully certified staff.
The New Standard: Enrichment Doggie Daycare
All of our Dog Daycare & Dog Boarding guests receive the following:
K9 Grass for Potty Training
Both of our play areas are outfitted with
K9 Grass to help maintain healthy potty
habits. At most indoor daycares, dogs are
encouraged to eliminate on the floor, which
can lead to bad habits at home. Our K9
Grass simulates and look and smell of real
grass, which discourages dogs from peeing
and pooping on the floor. It's also a great
training tool for puppies. We also clean
the grass throughout the day to maintain
a healthy and sanitary play area.
Basic Manners Training
We provide basic training for every guest - and practice commands they already know!
Positive Reinforcement Training Only.
*More advanced training coming soon!
Physical Agility Exercises
Play should do more than just wear out your pup! Our exercise time is crafted to improve their skills instead of running them ragged.
Featuring AKC approved equipment like:
Weave poles & Bar Jumps
Truly Premium Amenities
No more cold cages or crud!
Luxury climate controlled dog lodging
Specialized sanitary K9 grass
Rubberized floors designed for joint health
Seriously, it's more like a hotel.
We may have gone overboard. 😅
Small Group, Off-Leash Play
Your companion should return from daycare happy-tired, not exhausted!
We strive to make your dog's stay as safe and enriching as possible.
Constant playroom supervision
Strategic grouping of dogs based on temperament and size - and preference!
We also watch dogs to see who their friends are, and then group them with their friends!
On top of small group play and training, we also prioritize other mentally engaging activities. Thinking is a healthy way to wear dogs out!
We have loads of puzzles, scent games, behavior shaping games, and more.
