Good Evening. It was exactly 2 weeks ago we locked our doors and haven't had dogs in the building since. Today it hurt to go in. Based on your responses we are going to reopen on Monday, April 6th. There will be some changes made for us to reopen.
1. Our hours will be 8am-5pm during the Shelter at Home order by the Governor - which is currently April 30th. We will be closed on Saturday and Sunday.
2. We will require an appointment for ALL DOGS attending daycare. You MUST indicate your drop off time on your appointment. If you know when you will be picking up, please indicate that on your reservation as well. *Please note all existing reservations that were in Kennel Geek HAVE BEEN REMOVED.
3. The front door will remain LOCKED. We will have entry at the rear of the building (video below).
4. All payments will be made via square and will be sent to the email on your account. Cash/Check payments will be accepted in an envelope only at pick up.
5. We will have hand sanitizer available outside the drop off area, please use it.
6. If you are sick, or someone in your household has been sick, please keep your dogs home. As much as we want them to hang out with us, we would rather you stay home until you are healthy!
*And Finally* Thank You. Thank you for being here for us during this bizarre time. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us or message us on facebook.

Why is BrightDogs DogPark Different than other Dog Day Care facilities?
Dogs don’t need to “run and gun” for an entire day at dog day care. Some dogs in fact just don’t know when to stop and relax. At the BrightDogs DogPark, dogs will have ample time to play, wind down, go outside and relax in a kennel.
We offer over 1,700 sq. ft. for your dog to play and relax. We have an outdoor space for sunshine, fresh air and snow for those who love it!
A structured schedule will allow for dogs to have time to play and time to relax.
Owned and Operated by The Bright Family, Kyle Bright, ABC-DT, a certified dog trainer and Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, Diana Bright, Lulu and Jack Bright.

Diana is responsible for business aspects and all events. Lulu and Jack - well they excel at playing with the dogs! They help treat #Yourslikeours.
BrightDogs will provide a home away from home for your dog. In a family friendly environment, the Bright Family will treat your dog as one of their own. Like us on Facebook to see pictures of your pups throughout their stay!
