Doggie Day Care

Our Doggie Day Care group is a great place for your dog to interact and socialize with other dogs. Our Doggie Day Care is open to boarding clients as well as day clients and provides a fun all day event for dogs of all sizes and play styles.


For additional information, please visit our Doggie Day Care page.

Courtyard Play

We offer individual sessions which allow our staff to get to know your dog’s likes and dislikes and ensure your pet has the time of his life. Our courtyard play sessions run for 20 minutes and give your pet one-on-one time with one of our devoted dog-loving staff members! If your dog has never ending energy this is the activity they will love. We stock our courtyard with many different types of toys and provide your dog with the freedom of playing off leash. For those that are more laid back or don’t particularly care for playing with toys, the courtyard is a great place for a relaxing belly rub, a massage or just some good snuggle time with our staff.


Our Astro Turf covered Courtyard is located in the center of our facility and is fully enclosed.

Whether your dog enjoys on-leash walks, playing off leash with an attendant or playing with friends in Day Care, they can do it all at Candlewick!

Trail Walks

Our facility is surrounded by acres of scenic woodland and located deep in the woods making for a perfect setting to enjoy peaceful nature hikes for your pet. We offer trail walks, which are done year round, using a ten foot lead on a network of paths with a fenced perimeter. Each of our trails is shaded, covered with woodchips and maintained for your pet’s health and safety. From energetic puppies who love to romp around and play to senior citizens who take pleasure in leisurely strolls, our trail walks are sure to make any vacationing pooch happy and content.

Why we use Astro Turf

The Courtyard area is constructed with Astro Turf. The main reason for using Astro Turf is that it allows the area to be cleaned and properly disinfected on a daily basis while providing soft footing and proper sanitation.  It allows for proper drainage, eliminating muddy and dirty areas, icy areas and puddles from forming so your pet can enjoy a clean and safe environment during any season of the year. It eliminates the need for rock, stone or gravel which cannot be cleaned and disinfected and can be harmful if swallowed.  Our clients really appreciate their pets going home clean after enjoying their time in Day Care.
