Power Hour

Power Hour is our weekend exercise session designed to provide an outlet for your dog’s excess energy. This session was designed as an energy burning, active play, based on the weekday Group Play session that we offer. Power Hour is a group of mixed size dogs that involves involves balls and chew toys, frisbees, agility tunnels, and swimming pool options to help entertain and stimulate the participants. Our staff will be ACTIVELY involved to provide your dog with 60 minutes of exercise and socialization with the other participating dogs. Our goal is to provide a fun energy outlet for your pet and to return your canine to you in a state of balanced sanity!

Registration is suggested to ensure your pet a spot in the action.

Power Hour is on Saturday mornings, beginning at 9:50 am and ending sharply at 11:00 am. Resort rooms are fully booked on most weekends so no indoor time can be accommodated for participants in this session. Because of this, it is imperative you be on time for the 11 am pickup. All check-ins and check-outs will occur at the entrance gate to our resort yard. If your pet is already staying with us at the resort, this option can be added on to their visit if you choose for your pet to participate.

Before participation is allowed, all dogs will be assessed for their ability to socially interact in an appropriate manner with the other dogs to ensure the safety of all involved. For days with inclement weather, due to the lack of indoor availability, Power Hour may be canceled if necessary.
