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. Kyle has worked with puppies and older dogs for basic training and behavior modification. He has worked with shelter dogs to acclimate them to being with people and other dogs. Diana is responsible for business aspects and all events. Lulu and Jack - well they excel at playing with the dogs! They help treat #Yourslikeours.
All of our staff is First Aid and Pet CPR Certified.
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!
An Assessment is required to use any services at BrightDogs. This gives us a chance to meet you and your dog and plan your dogs playtime accordingly.
We take care of #Yourslikeours Always.
