Puppyland is NOW OPEN!  

Puppyland is a 10-acre ranch in Los Angeles that offers overnight care and positive reinforcement training for dogs. Our mission is to raise the standard of care for dogs and create a less stressful, more enriching stay while dogs are away from their home. We are Fear Free Certified, a member of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, and an AKC Good Citizen Evaluator.

Puppyland Phase I consists of three environmentally enriching dog yards all while still offering a home-like environment. We offer small, supervised playgroups, nature walks, and gorgeous mountain views. Indoor areas offer television, music, and climate control. We have a stellar staff and offer daily videos so you know what your dog is up to.

We had our soft launch of Puppyland in May, 2024. We have 3.5 more acres to develop for Phase II.Please check our website or Instagram page for updates!

Frequently Asked Questions

What vaccinations are needed for my dog to stay?

All of our guests must be at least 12 weeks of age and have had their second round of vaccinations, which includes vaccinations for Parvo Virus, Distemper, and Bordetella.  To help reduce the risk of contracting the Kennel Cough virus, Bordetella vaccinations should be renewed every 6 months.  For dogs over 6 months of age, a Rabies vaccination is also required. We also recommend a flea treatment prior to the stay. If fleas are found on a dog, a mandatory flea treatment/bath will be required at the owner's expense.  

Vaccination records will be required to be uploaded to your account portal once registered as a customer.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

We understand that plans change but we do ask for 48 hours notice. This allows us to accommodate a client who may be on our wait list. If a reservation is canceled within 48 hours, a $95 cancellation charge may apply.  

How do I pay?

All reservations are required to have a credit card on file. Services will be billed at check out.  While we do accept Venmo or Zelle, we will bill the card on file via our online portal unless otherwise noted.

What should I bring?

All we need is your dog's food, unless you are requesting our food services.  Food must be portioned and provided in ziplock bags or non-breakable containers, with feeding instructions, dog's name and owner's name written clearly.

Besides food, we provide everything else! This includes toys, bones, antlers, dog bowls, bedding, etc.

To keep our space as sanitary as possible, we ask that you do not bring in toys or dog beds.  We will not be responsible for any damaged or lost toys, if brought in. We have an abundance of toys for our guests to play with!

What does a day at your space look like for my dog?

A day with us is both mentally and physically stimulating. The structure implemented at our space is aimed to mimic the lifestyle dogs have at home. Dogs get supervised social time in small, customized playgroups in both our indoor and outdoor play areas, with water and food breaks scheduled throughout the day.  We will be sending you a daily video each evening so you can watch your dog interact with their friends and/or our staff.

During your dog's stay, our staff will reinforce training already in place (i.e. - practicing a default sit / not jumping / etc.).  We will never use fear tactics to intimidate dogs (we do not believe in using spray bottles).  Everything we utilize is based on science ‍‍(positive reinforcement methodologies).

Please note, if your dog has not had any training and you would like to add training to a stay, that is a different service (Board & Train/ Day Board & Train) and will need to be discussed further. Please contact us for more information.

Do you have any restrictions?

Yes, a temperament test and/or phone consultation is required in order to book a stay.   Please reach out to us to determine whether we are a good fit for your dog. We cannot accommodate last minute/same-day requests.

Can I pick up/drop off my dog myself?

In order for us to be able to adhere to our daily schedule at our facility, we cannot accommodate clients coming to our space. We are a small, specialized team that follows a very structured day, which is why we are able to offer personalized care and a less stressful environment for the dogs in our care and for our staff.  
We offer a pick up/drop off service via a Tesla shuttle, which operates Sunday - Friday during the window of 11am-1pm. We do not offer a shuttle service on Saturdays.

Images of our space are available on our social media page. We are happy to provide more information via scheduled phone consultations.

Can you share more about your space?

For social time, we offer dogs in each custom playgroup the opportunity to enjoy two different yards on a 1/4 acre lot. One yard has synthetic turf and the other has mulch, which helps fulfill the needs of each individual dog staying with us.

For rest and sleeping arrangements, each dog gets an individual crate with their own personal bedding, food and water bowls (cleaned on a daily basis) in a temperature controlled private space.  We provide an ambient environment that includes music and their favorite television shows for a home-like experience.
