Enriching the lives of dogs
More Than Pet People
Great Dog enriches the lives of dogs and their people each and every day. Since its inception in 2001, Great Dog has been the "go to, paw forward" dog daycare in the North Seattle area. We provide daycare, boarding, group and private lessons. Our professional Suds Specialists can spiff up your dog or do a pawicure. Whether it's a targeted trick class, a puppy social, or simply treating your best friend, our retail store has just the right amount of specialty products, enrichment toys and nutritious treats to make it a destination you and your dog will enjoy. Round out your Great Dog experience at BARK espresso!
to enrich your best friend
At Great Dog Daycare your dog will enjoy over 8000 square feet of indoor-outdoor play areas. We have multiple trained staff members to offer snuggles & oversee playtime activities. At Great Dog, we have lots of other canine buddies for your dog to play with. Our great dogs get to take full advantage of your toils at work or time while you run errands. As a "Great Dog" your dog will get to dash through swimming pools, jump into a game of soccer, play fetch, learn through obedience stimulating activities, partake in sunbathing, socialize at sprinkler parties and more! At Great Dog, your dog will participate in a safe, fun atmosphere & will enjoy getting tuckered out during the day.
Evening playtime, specialized attention, daytime romps... Great Dog offers an alternative to the traditional boarding kennel for your pet’s holidays away from home. Your dog will spend his days in the daycare and his nights in the company of familiar canine friends and our overnight staff. Our environment is geared toward creating a calmer, more familiar small pack environment to make your dog’s overnight stay as comfortable and as stress-free as possible.
We teach you to craft a great relationship with your dog using humane and force-free training techniques. Proven effective teaching methods address YOUR learning style so we set both the canine and human up for optimal success. All of this with some of Seattle's most experienced certified instructors motivate you to get ready for a GREAT experience!
We provide instruction through innovative classes, custom private sessions, or even convenient online content. Whatever style matches your best learning environment, we have it covered!
SUDS: BATH & HYGIENE
A clean dog makes for a happy owner. At Great Dog, our bathing services include a brush out, hydro massage bath using gentle and natural products, anal expression, ear cleaning, and nail trimming.
