With indoor and outdoor activity spaces, dog-loving attendants on staff 24 hours a day, and lots of friends to play with, dogs may not want to leave Woof World once they arrive. Whether they're there for daycare or all-night boarding, canines can run through agility courses, clamber up climbing structures, and wrestle with toys in an indoor play area equipped with rubberized flooring to protect paws. Outside, they wallow in bone-shaped swimming pools and drink straight from the hose in the warm sun. The pampering doesn't stop at bedtime—dogs have their pick of a variety of mattresses and dog beds piled with blankets and pillows, and there isn't a cage to be found. Staff members stay throughout the night, keeping watch to take care of any overnight potty emergencies and prevent toothpaste pranks from fellow boarders. All dogs must meet the facility's prerequisites to stay, including passing a behavior test, up-to-date vaccinations, and other requirements.
