Cage Free Dog Boarding, Daycare & Canine Training
We are proud to offer Cage Free Dog Boarding, one of only a few facilities in all of greater San Diego that offers this service. This is a true home away from home experience. Your dog is free to choose from an array of multiple comfy plush beds or your dog can choose to hop in bed and snuggle up with one of our night-time attendants. See our Rates Page for canine cage free boarding pricing details.
Our state-of-the-art daycare facility offers 6,000 square feet of indoor play area divided into two separate yards. Daycare play is fully supervised at all times and webcams are installed throughout the facility so you can check in and see your pet having fun in real-time.
DogSpot Taxi Service
We offer a convenient taxi shuttle for owners’ with busy schedules. To schedule a taxi pick up or drop off, simply send us an email with any instructions and we’ll take care of the rest! For the first taxi ride, we ask that owners are home to give any special taxi instructions to the taxi driver. After that, you are more than welcome to leave a key with us, under a doormat, in a hide-a-way rock. Whatever you are most comfortable with, we will happily accommodate. Currently, we offer out taxi service to and from Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos, San Elijo Hills, Encinitas, and Del Mar. If you live in a different city please let us know so we can build a route to your area soon!
All canine training is conducted by Owner-Operator Carlene King. She is a certified canine behavior and training specialist. At DogSpot we understand that no two dogs are the same. Each dog has their own unique way of learning, which is why we teach using a custom-based training approach to find what motivates your individual dog. In some cases, a variety of methods are necessary depending on the dog’s behavioral traits. During private lessons, we will work with you to customize a training plan that will cover all your obedience needs.
DogSpot offers a fully-stocked self-wash center. Wash tubs are elevated to waist height to prevent washers from bending over, and all tubs are equipped with high-powered blow dryers. We supply it all: premium shampoos, brushes, aprons, nail clippers, and two finishing tables. All you need is a dirty dog and we take care of the rest. Wash tubs are on a first-come-first-serve basis and are currently only available to our daycare and boarding clients.

DogSpot Optional Annual Insurance
Here at DogSpot, we go above and beyond to ensure every dog in our care are kept safe. But every now and then a puncture or a tear may happen while playing. Dogs play with their teeth and nails and at times don’t even realize they have an injury. If you choose to purchase our $100.00 insurance, DogSpot will cover up to $1,000.00 (per incident) of vet bills for one year. For more information regarding our optional insurance please feel free to either give us a call or send us an email and one of our staff members will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have!
