The dogs need breaks during the day just like any human does. If we did not make them take a break, many dogs would play until they are exhausted and that can lead to conflicts. During the break we serve lunch to the dogs who brought food with them, this allows them to digest their food, and/ or take a short nap before resuming play for the rest of the afternoon. If you drop your dog off at 11:00 p.m., they will still take a break at 12:00 p.m., so please plan your drop offs and pick ups accordingly. We encourage our customers to bring their dogs for a full day with us to gain the most benefits from our services.
