Services available at The Watering Bowl in Dog Grove


Everyone sleeps well at The Watering Bowl. Thanks to The Hangover effect. But the part of boarding that your dog will appreciate the most is busting out of the kennel every morning to go play with the pack in our cage-free indoor/outdoor play area. Then, after a full day of play, they adjourn to the plush environs of our well-appointed kennels.


Indoors and outside, we have plenty of space to stretch all four legs. When the weather is suitable, we can’t wait to throw open the big overhead doors, so the pack can roam freely inside and outside. And when it’s not, we party in our padded, climate-controlled space to our hearts’ content.


The certified trainers at each of The Watering Bowl locations utilize the Least Intrusive Minimally Aversive (LIMA) approach to working with their students. Our mission is to blend consistent guidance and healthy socialization to foster a well-rounded life for both dogs and their owners. It’s all about getting to know each other.


After a full day of play, it’s nice to freshen up before heading home. That’s why we offer a scrub and fluff—now with new Sav-Ur Fur washing machines for less shed—before your scheduled pick-up time. We also offer specific Paw Spaw treatments, a la carte.


Two or more vehicles are considered a fleet. And our four Waggin’ Wagons are at the ready to help pick up your dog from your home or your office if you so wish. It may be the most exciting vehicle to hit your street, at least as far as your dog is concerned.
