Our 12,100 sq ft indoor facility is ideal for dogs of all sizes and energy levels. We offer a section for big and small dogs as well as puppies. Why offer a separate section for different size dogs? Dogs are not like children. In the canine world, small dogs can get hurt if they do not match the energy level of a large dog during play. Some small dogs can keep up with the larger ones but some are not comfortable with the big dog size or energy. This is where our small dog play area is beneficial.

We have a state of the art Ecoquest Air Purification System in our play room to ensure that your pet is breathing clean, healthy, virus free air while he is running with the pack.

In addition to the indoor area, there is also a large 10,200 sq ft, secure outdoor play area. We offer several large open play areas to group dogs together by energy in free play and create a balanced pack. Each area is attended by our trained staff.

While you are at work, home, or on vacation, you can watch your pet play and interact by logging onto our webcam system. This way, you are a click away from checking in to see how your pet is doing, anytime of the day

Please note that we can not put your dog in our day care program without proper attire. If you fail to bring a regular nylon collar in with you, you may purchase one in our lobby for your pet. If you fail to bring a regular nylon collar, your pet may be turned away. We recommend that you keep a spare collar in your car for when your pet comes to day care or for boarding. Thank you for your cooperation!

We also offer “Day Class Canine Education Packages” to be included with the day care sessions. In addition to your pet receiving hours of socialization skills and free play time, he or she will also enjoy private, personalized training and learning sessions with our certified trainer and training dogs. This package includes six one hour sessions with our trainer on the most basic aspects of training. This could be used as a prerequisite for entering our intermediate and advanced training classes. Please contact us for pricing and availability. Email: lisa@lopci.com or Call 610-366-8282 and ask for Lisa.

Come in and check us out today. We offer much more than pet sitting. Bring your pet here for a day of total enjoyment. By combining the mental and physical stimulation of pack interaction, free play, and learning techniques, your dog will come home happy, tired and well balanced. They may even have some stories to tell about all of their new friends!

Proudly serving the Allentown, Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas.

Please note that ANY dog that has previously PASSED our day care evaluation but has taken a 3 month or longer hiatus from doggie day care will be subject to a ‘slow introduction’ into our day care room. This ‘slow intro’ is a way for our staff to ensure that your pet safely enters the day care room. Our staff will ensure that your pet still has maintained their previous socialization skills over the period of time that we have not seen them. ‘Slow intro’ fee’s range from $10 to $15. We require an appointment be made before drop off. If you fail to schedule a ‘slow intro’ appointment your pet may not be able to enter our day care room. Please call 610-366-8282 to schedule your pets ‘slow intro’ appointment if you have not brought your dog to our day care facility within the last 3 months. We appreciate your cooperation with this policy. Our number one priority is the safety and well being of ALL dogs in our care and we take any appropriate steps necessary to do so.
