All of our Doggie Daycare clients know the value of safe, fun exercise for their dogs while owners are away. Now Carolina Ranch is extending our Doggie Daycare service to include Saturdays, too! Something comes up. Company comes in. Maybe you need time to run errands, take a daytrip, or just want some extra playtime for your dog with friends. Now you can drop off at the Ranch any Saturday (with the exception of some holidays) and accomplish anything you need with the knowledge that your dog is having a blast!

Evaluation for Daycare

Saturday Daycare Special Considerations:

  • Drop off between 8-9 am and Pick up between 5-6pm (Daycare door will be locked besides these times).

*We will be happy to board your dog overnight if you are unable to make it to pick up your by 6pm (standard boarding rates apply).

  • At this time we will not be able to complete any bathing services on Saturdays.
  • Reservations are required. Spaces are limited to 25 drop-off participants per Saturday. Owners must sign up on sign up sheet at the lobby counters or call for reservations no later than Friday.
  • We will be offering new dog evaluations on Saturdays
  • The Unlimited (Monthly) Package will only cover Monday through Friday after May 1st. For Saturdays there will be a Single day rate for the Unlimited Package ($16.00/day)
  • Package days can be used for Saturday daycare. Single day charge ($30) for non-package daycare dogs.
  • There are no half days on Saturdays.


The play schedule is similar to the weekly schedule. We will have a morning session and an afternoon session with a break in the middle of the day. We are happy to give your dog a lunch during the break time that is provided by you or the Ranch. It is important to drop off with in the drop off hours so we can plan playgroups accordingly and make sure your dog receives the maximum amount of playtime. This is a new program for the Ranch, and the guidelines may change as we understand better the dynamics of Daycare on the weekend. Thank you for your understanding! We are very excited to be offering Saturday Daycare to our clients.

There are a few things that are required of all our Doggie Daycare participants. We want to ensure the health and safety of all our Daycare friends, so these items should be on your checklist:

  • All dogs are spayed or neutered by 6 months old
  • On heartworm and flea prevention
  • Current negative heartworm test (age dependent)
  • Up-to-date on all vaccines
  • Up-to-date on fecal exam (internal parasites)

Also keep in mind that we require an initial Evaluation Day for all new Doggie Daycare participants. This evaluation is an all-day event that should lead to your pet joining a Daycare group for the duration of the day. The process may take most of the day, so drop off your dog in the morning and expect an email or phone call sometime later in the day.
