How Does Dog Daycare at Milton Manor Differ from Other Dog Daycares?

At Milton Manor near Saratoga Springs NY, dogs enjoy a daycare experience like none other. Our pet spa and resort is a member of the Dog Gurus, Safe Off Leash Dog Play and our staff members have completed training with Dog Gurus including Knowing Dogs 101, Knowing Dogs 201, Evaluating Dogs 301. All of our staff are Pet First Aid & CPR Certified and have taken the Group Play Safety Pledge.

Some of the other features that set our dog daycare in Saratoga apart from other dog daycares in the Capital District include the following:

  • Dogs can enjoy both the indoor (1500 square foot) and outdoor (3000 square foot ) play areas.
  • Our indoor play areas feature rubber flooring, which is much better for dogs' joints than concrete flooring.
  • Our outdoor play area features artificial turf, which helps to eliminate the possibility that dogs could consume foreign matter such as stones, dirt, grass, etc. In addition, dogs stay much cleaner than when playing in pea gravel, dirt, mud or other common surfaces. Artificial turf is also much more gentle on sensitive paws than pea gravel or pavement.
  • The staff to dog ratio at Milton Manor is a maximum of 1:10 for safety.
  • Very strict assessment process.
  • Mental stimulation and structured day through scent work, agility, sits, stays, games specific for our canine friends, not just free play all day

Dog Daycare Hours & Availability

Our doggie daycare is offered Monday through Friday for dogs from 25lbs to 80lbs.

Unfortunately due to lack of interest, we are no longer offering full day daycare for small dogs (under 25 lbs) at this time. Please call us if this you would be interested in seeing us add small dogs back in the future. Please let us know if you would to bring your small dog (under 25lbs) to our Puppy Play Hour each Wednesday evening. (Please note: we are closed on the holidays listed to the right).

Drop off time for dog daycare is between 7:00am to 9:00am. All dogs must be dropped off by 9am to participate in daycare, no exceptions. If you drop your dog off after 9am, they will not be able to join group but will be able to stay in our day boarding program.

Pick up time is between 4:00pm to 6:00pm.

Reservations are required as we are limited on the number of dogs we can take per day. We require all dogs to attend at least once per week to learn appropriate group play behaviors. Thank you for your understanding.

Daycare will consist of both mental and physical stimulation through out the day along with a midday nap. During the morning hours, staff will work on manners, such as sit, stay, come when called and gate boundries. When all dogs know these commands, the group behaves much better as a whole. The afternoon will consist of monitored group play.

Snow Day Closing Policy: If EITHER Saratoga Springs School District or Ballston Spa School District are closed for the day, daycare at Milton Manor will also be closed. If there is only a delay, daycare will procede following normal hours (we do not have any delays).
