Dog Boarding Addons

Daycare Group Play

Does your dog come to our dog daycare? Sign up for this group play activity during their boarding stay and they will get to come play with their friends while at their extended stay with us. If you are a pass holder this will not count against your pass count. $28/day value and included in the price of boarding. Has your dog not had an evaluation yet? Sign up for an evaluation during your dog's boarding stay and be daycare ready when they go home!

Shy dog group play

The perfect activity for dogs who love to socialize but get overwhelmed by large groups or long periods of playtime. Shy dog group play includes frequent nap times and a highly curated group of friends for your dog to play with based on an assessment of their temperament, personality, and playstyle. Dogs who wish to participate in shy dog group play will also need to receive an evaluation. After their boarding stay our shy dogs are welcome to come back for daycare at any time and will be given smaller increments of play and frequent nap times in our dedicated naptime breakroom for dogs.

Evaluation for Daycare

For dogs to participate in our dog daycare setting we require that they receive an evaluation of their temperament, personality, and playstyle. You can sign up for an Evaluation during your boarding stay to participate in any of our group play activities. If your dog passes the evaluation process they are welcome back to come to our dog daycare any time Monday through Friday and can participate in any group play activities automatically in the future $28 value included in the price of the boarding stay.

Socialization activities

This option is a wonderful activity option for dogs who are under socialized, and may not have much exposure to other dogs or sensory exposures outside of their home. In this socialization experience our skilled boarding and daycare team members will create the foundations to help your dog build confidence. At the end of your dogs stay you will be sent a training assessment from our trainer through our pet portal.

One-on-One play time

This activity is for those dogs who love toy time and love attention from people! A great option for dogs who may not enjoy the daycare setting or did not pass their evaluation so they will still get plenty of outdoor time, enrichment, and fun! All dogs are welcome to sign up for this choice of playtime, and we invite our furry friends to come join our staff for fun games of tug, fetch, jolly ball, and much more!

Outdoor walks

Our dogs get 4 outdoor relief walks a day, but if your dog particularly likes long leisurely walks to sniff and explore then this is an excellent option for them. Add this activity for  extended walks in our spacious outdoor areas.

What sets us apart?

Valley Veterinary Hospital was started in 1996 by Dr. Lindsay Shreiber with one goal in mind-- to treat every animal that walks through our doors with Care, Commitment and Compassion. Dr. Shreiber is a skilled animal behaviorist, having studied at Wolfpark, and believes in treating every animal as a whole, and each situation uniquely.

About our staff

Private Training vs Behavioral Modification

Private training sessions are offered by availability during office hours.

Before our trainer starts any private lessons with you and your dog, they offer a free consultation to understand your needs and goals for training, as well as the issues you may be experiencing at home or in public.

If a Behavior Modification plan is suggested, this is done in coordination between our trainer and our veterinarians, to come up with the best course of action for your pup regardless of the issue that may exist, and a custom designed course of action will be made for tackling the specific unwanted issues at hand.

Behavior Modification approaches issues such as reactive behaviors, separation anxiety, resource guarding and beyond.

I have been going to Valley Vet since 1998. I have always had great care with all of the vets. Dr. Shreiber has always been wonderful to the dogs, and always has extensive knowledge. He is always gentle and caring. And I have a new great rapport with Dr. O. She is delightful and straightforward about care, which is very important. I never feel that these doctors are dumbing things down for me, which is truly appreciated as I have 45 years of experience with sight hounds.-Mary K.

We truly feel like their trainer cares about each dog as a whole and not just getting them to obey. His approach to training is completely different than any other trainer we have talked to.-Lindsay T.

I can absolutely say that the trainer at valley veterinary hospital is responsible for helping me save my dog’s life. I know I can always reach out to them for help. They have been an amazing support for our family and has made it possible for us to live a happy comfortable life with our crazy little dog. And I know that as other things arise in the future, I have someone to turn to. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who is having problems with their dog, or even those who aren’t! They helped me to feel so much more in control and has made my dog a happier pup for it.-Ellis A.
