  • Three, 6-foot-tall misting water arches
  • A 10-foot-tall umbrella with a curtain of water
  • A giant, 4-foot-tall fire hydrant that bubbles water
  • A water chaser controlled by staff for dogs to chase
  • 18 foaming, misting and steady flow water jets

Safe, Stimulating Water Play

At Petropolis, our doggy daycare and activity packages, during boarding provide a safe and convenient way for your dog to socialize with dogs of similar size and temperament. With Canine Cove, it also provides a safe and engaging way for your pet to have fun in the water. Through interactive features, our engaging team and a positive environment your dog will be able to enjoy summer in the water, just like you.

Canine Cove is great for introducing puppies to water. Our trained team members engage with puppies in the water with positive reinforcement such as treats and verbal praise. Other dogs in the playgroup also naturally encourage puppies to get in the water.
