Art “Art” is a bloodhound, of course, who loves doggy daycare!

He loves small, medium and large dogs but his best buddy is “Sherman”
a Portuguese Water Dog.

Art has a zest for life and his rich chocolate eyes just melt your heart with one glance.  Art wakes up happy and goes to sleep happy, he just makes you want to smile when your around him.

The Bloodhound is one of the oldest original scent hounds,  "The actual term "Bloodhound" refers not to what the Bloodhound trails but instead refers to its status as the "blooded hound," meaning aristocratic, since such great lengths were taken early on to keep the strain clean."


Puppy at Doggie DaycareMy how they grow!  Here is Biscuit when she first started coming to The Grove back when she was a wee little puppy, now she is all grown up!  Biscuit lives with her sister Cinnamon, a beautiful little red dachshund, who is also a regular at The Grove.

Biscuit enjoys playing with little and big dogs but most of all she loves to jump up and grip your waist with her front paws in a tight hug.  We have really enjoyed watching her grow up into such a cute young lady, kudo’s to her human parents for their outstanding job of early socialization and training.

Those early months of doggie daycare and grooming have produced a dog who is stable, confident, happy and getting her nails done is just another part of a normal day.

Doggy Daycare in Olympia, WAMeet Ms. Coffy, she may be small but don’t tell her that, you won’t like  her reply!  Coffy began her days here at The Grove in the Little Dog Daycamp Room but it became quickly apparent that she preferred the Big Dog Room.

Coffy became instant best buddies with the striking Taz.  Watching this friendship of opposites develop has been a great time for all of us at The Grove.  Little black terrier mix “Coffy” meets and falls in love with Big White German Shepherd “Taz”, their rowdy play and constant snuggling brings a smile to us everyday!
