what we do

dogventures is our twist on dog daycare. it’s entirely outdoors, includes leash-free vineyard hikes, and takes a limited number of guests each day.  we figured why not embrace Napa Valley’s idyllic weather and outdoor lifestyle?  so we took a leap of faith and started our business with the simple goal of giving other dogs what we’d like for our own pack. every adventure provides important ingredients that help dogs thrive and be the best version of themselves possible: social interaction, physical exercise, and the ability to make choices in a safe setting.  

limited occupancy

over our many years living, playing, and working with dogs we’ve noticed they thrive in smaller, more intimate groups rather than large ones.  from the very beginning we knew that we’d limit attendance to ten dogs each day.  on some days, it’s even fewer.  it simply depends on the energy level and personality of each dog. 

our mission

the lessons we’ve learned from our dogs are many, but these are sacrosanct: regular physical exercise, mental stimulation, engaging activities, and plenty of fresh air and open space with their human.  inspired by our own pack, we’re on a mission to stimulate minds and burn-off excess energy so that your dog thrives.

it’s been coined “the fun factory” by clients and friends alike.  we’ve filled it with agricultural-inspired objects to climb on, run around and perch upon; beds and cots to lounge on; and rugged toys to satiate dogs’ innate need to chew, mouth, and carry.  our base camp is approximately 4,000 square feet and is situated within a fully-fenced four acre vineyard.  by simply opening our back gate, we are able to take your dog — along with a few of her buddies — for a leash-free vineyard hike.  this is available each day for all dogs unless you request otherwise.

open house

we’re planning our first ever Open House sometime between late April and mid-May.  weather will play a factor into the exact date…including our ability to do a good old-fashioned spring cleaning and planting after the winter storms.  this will be a great opportunity to mingle with other like-minded, dog-loving outdoor enthusiasts. and if you’re not quite ready to sign-up your dog for our adventures, this will be a low-key way to visit us. we’ll keep you posted on this….
