About Us

Discover DogTown

DogTown has been Gresham’s top dog care facility since 2006. We set ourselves apart with our positive reinforcement, training based daycare. We also offer a science based enrichment program (P.L.A.Y.) as an addition to daycare or for dogs who need or want more mental stimulation during the week. Our P.L.A.Y. program is highly recommended for puppies also! Our extensively trained staff complete continuing education on dog body language, training and pet First Aid. During the day, we play with your pet, supervise them with their friends and teach basic obedience, manners and tricks. We advocate being responsible pet owners and we practice it! We do everything possible to ensure that your dog is a happy, well-mannered family pet. Since daycare is not ideal for every dog, we continuously evaluate all the dogs in our care to ensure they are still enjoying the busyness of group play with other dogs and will keep you informed of their progress. Your pet will be part of our family, so feel free to ask us how we can make their lives more enjoyable and enriching. Give us a call to schedule a tour of the facility or stop in to see what we are all about.
