Your Dogs Home Away From Home!



Tail Gate not only offers the kiddie pools, sprinklers, and big swimming pool, but we also have other play equipment for your loved ones to play on. We have slides, giant legos, houses, a bridge, and many more! Our Tail Gaters  have a blast jumping and playing on all the play equipment we have outside during their day of play. Raleigh (in the house), Bentley (left), and Murray (right) are playing hide-and-go-seek using the houses that we have. It looks like they found her though! We can’t wait to see what your furry loved ones’ favorite activity will be!

Singing a Song

Winston and Nina Singing

Winston (on the left) and Nina (on the right) are together singing a happy Tail Gate song. Although Winston is in the middle of his solo, Nina looks like she’s doing some background singing. We love seeing all the different activities our Tail Gaters take part in; whether its splashing in the kiddie pools, swimming in the big pool, fetching the tennis ball, playing tag, chase, hide-and-seek, or even singing.  No matter what activity your dog loves to do, Tail Gate is always right there joining in on the fun!

Nap Time.


Nap times are very healthy part of the Tail Gate experience. For dogs who need more breaks such as seniors, we will make sure they have a private, cozy space to relax as needed. We closely monitor all of our dogs to ensure they have a positive experience while in our care! Many times, dogs will choose their own nap time, like Shredder pictured above. Here he is taking a nap in the sun after splashing in the pool and playing tag with all of his friends. If your dog has an medical concerns that might require additional breaks, just let us know. This is especially common with dogs who exhibit hip dysplasia.
