Dog's Day Out has been providing Bowling Green and the surrounding community with a place that dogs can call their home away from home for over 13 years. Located on a beautiful privately owned farm, we provide a safe place for your pup to have a fun and relaxing time. Whether it's for a day, or for an extended vacation, we are here to make sure your pet is safe, happy, and comfortable.

Dog’s Day Out offers an array of grooming options. Our facility is equipped with professional grooming equipment, such as the Davis ProPet Bathing System, to ensure your pet leaves squeaky clean! Dog’s Day Out can provide your pup with services ranging from baths to blueberry facials and hydromassage. We also offer full service grooming including cuts and styling.
All grooming is by appointment. Please contact us to set up your pup's next appointment!
First Time Guests
Before scheduling a boarding or daycare reservation, we require a Meet and Greet session with your dog. The meet and greet is complimentary and allows us to introduce ourselves to you and your dog. We want to make sure all dogs in our care are happy, secure, and comfortable. Please call us to set up your initial visit.
Along with vaccination documentation and a scheduled Meet and Greet, we will need a completed Enrollment Application. This will get us started on becoming acquainted with you and your dog. Please use the link below to print the Enrollment Application if you would like to fill it out ahead of time and bring it with you for your Meet and Greet.
We require all dogs coming to our facility for any services to provide documentation from your veterinarian of current vaccinations including Rabies, Distemper/Parvo (or equivalent),Canine Influenza, and Bordetella. We accept documentation of adequate titer tests in lieu of inoculations.
If your dog has stayed with us before, you may use one of the forms below to request a reservation. We must have an up to date enrollment application as well as current vaccination records on file in order to consider a request through our website.
Requesting a stay does not guarantee availability. One of our staff members will contact you regarding your request.
Your reservation is not complete until you have received confirmation from us.

We are hiring!
Think this sounds like the perfect job for you?
Great! Let's cover a few things first.
Must REALLY love dogs!
Must love dogs enough to enjoy cleaning up after them for hours at a time. This position is 50% cleaning, scooping, and scrubbing the facility followed by 25% feeding, wiping and attending to our doggy guests. (The last 25% is where playing with pups factors in.)
Must love dogs enough to care for them in extreme conditions. We have to tend to our duties and pups no matter the season or weather. Hot and humid summer days? Yep, we are cleaning, scooping and hanging outside. Below freezing outside? Snowing? Raining? Yep, the show must go on! Bundle up!
Must not be intimidated by dirt, pee, poop, slobber, or any other gross things dogs can muster up to spread on you. There is one guarantee with this job. You WILL leave with at least one gross thing on you after each shift.
Must be willing to work weekends and holidays. The pups need our care 365 days a year. In addition, weekends, holidays, and school breaks happen to be our BUSIEST times! We need all staff on board for those times!
~Kennel attendant: provide daily care for the dogs including feeding, cleaning, exercising, and administering medications. Evenings and weekends required.
~Cleaning technician: perform heavy cleaning duties, such as cleaning floors, sanitizing kennels, and scrubbing outdoor play areas. Weekends required.
~Grooming assistant: assist our groomer with bathing, drying, and other (hands on) grooming tasks, helping with non-grooming tasks such as cleaning the grooming areas/equipment, taking inventory of grooming supplies, communication with clients, and scheduling grooming appointments.
