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 WI helps young dogs become social and confident (starting as young as 12 weeks, with proper shots). 

Join The Dog Sanctuary WI, a doggy daycare serving Sussex, Pewaukee, Brookfield, Hartland and Menomonee Falls, WI ... where you and your dog will always be treated like family!


Dogs that attend playgroup are assessed with other dogs we feel would match well before they are allowed in group. We divide our groups based on size, age, temperament, and energy level. Our group sizes are kept no more than 15 dogs to a group to keep them from being overwhelmed. ​

We keep the dogs enriched through a number of activities from toys, fetch, bubbles, pools, sprinklers, play equipment, depending on the group. Ask us about one-on-one play time too!
