Where Every Dog Matters

Dog Day Getaway® was founded by Carey and Nicole, two entrepreneurs who transformed their routine life into an adventure, inspired by their passion for dogs. Their journey began in 2004, with the aim of creating a fun and safe environment for both dog owners and their cherished pets. Over the years, their venture has evolved into a vast 12,000 square foot retreat. As the only spot in the Twin Cities with our unique play equipment, we offer a range of services far beyond our original vision. Our expansive facility boasts indoor and outdoor play areas, 12 live webcams for pet owners to stay connected, an exclusive event space, and individualized rooms tailored for dogs.

DDG® stands out not just as a typical kennel or daycare but as a second home for pets. Our commitment to top-tier care, combined with an unwavering love for dogs, ensures that your pet’s well-being and contentment are at the forefront of our services. We don’t just care for your dog. At DDG®, we don’t just provide a delightful experience; we embrace your beloved companion as if they were our own. Over the years, many of our canine guests and their parents have become like family, with some entrusting us with their multigenerational pups since we opened our doors.
