Playgroup A.K.A. Doggy Daycare!
Did you know that the best time for a dog to learn social skills is between 3 and 16 weeks old? The Dog Sanctuary helps young dogs become social and confident (starting as young as 8 weeks, with proper shots).
Join The Dog Sanctuary, a two-time award-winning doggy daycare serving Sussex, Pewaukee, Brookfield, Hartland and Menomonee Falls, WI ... where you and your dog will always be treated like family!
Dogs attending our playgroup learn how to work their minds differently, while exercising physically in a completely new way. We challenge their minds to become more well rounded and maintain a happy, balanced life.
Enrichment is for every dog, regardless of age, breed or size. There is no discrimination - every dog-friendly dog is welcome.
Your dog should never pick up a bad behavior from The Dog Sanctuary. We aim to strengthen their good behavior, not lessen it.
We do not use squirt bottles, shaker cans, yelling, or any adverse techniques on your dog. We are the only dog daycare in Wisconsin practicing these methods.
Why? Because they're scientifically proven to help your dog understand and learn, better than any other approach. It's been our focus since the day we opened, and always will be. Isn't that what you'd like for your furry best friend?

Marley, even though you are in a better place now The Dog Sanctuary truly misses your energetic and spunky personality. You were such a joy to have with us, playing so sweetly with everyone and being a big lover! You were taken far too early but I'm glad you are at peace now not suffering.
