Always Unleashed, Dog Boarding Scottsdale, Dog Day Care Scottsdale, AZ Pet Resort Scottsdale
Always Unleashed is a true pet resort, others say it but we live it! We built a paradise for dogs because we felt if you’re going on vacation then your pet should too!


We pride ourselves on having one of the best and unique programs in the country. Read on and see for yourself why we are the Rolls-Royce in the pet care industry and exceedingly different from the rest.


Dogs have 100% freedom.
They get to roam free and are NEVER put into cages or crates throughout the day or at night. Instead, we feel dogs are happiest with their pack friends; so the same dogs they played with during the day are the ones they get to snuggle with at night. Dogs are social by design and aren’t meant to be put in isolation.  Tune in to our infrared night cams and see for yourself  how happy and calm our cage-free environment is…a picture paints a 1,000 words our web cams say a million.


Customer’s love that we are also staffed at night-  24 hours a day, 7 days a week someone is with your pet.  


The webcams are live and scan back and forth, inside and out. Your dog is always just a click away from your phone or computer from anywhere in the world.  Did you know we are the ONLY daycare in Scottsdale that has anytime webcam access? Because you pooch can’t speak or let you know what he/she did while you were apart we feel web cams should be a indispensable prerequisite when choosing your ideal pet resort as they help to provide peace of mind needed for all our conscientious customer.   No password is needed, just click on the “LiveCam tab” above. 


We have an effectively trained staff, incomparable to any facility around. This is due to the evolution of our Manners Program being conducted each day to secure safety, order, and establish hierarchy.  Click on the video tab above and watch the first video called “Manners” to see what our Manners system looks like. It is very rare to find any doggy daycare center that allows as much toys,  freedom, and fresh air than we do.   Here at Always Unleashed, we incorporate toys into our Manners Program. We do use alpha rolls (having dog submit on side) to keep the dogs safe and toys also help us test dogs responsiveness to the staff.  Other places ban toys but we provide an abundance of them. Note: The majority of our toys are guaranteed by the manufacture to be indestructible. This helps keep intestinal tracts safe from accidental ingestion.


There are not extra fees for pool time. The dogs can go in the pool whenever they are in the park. The pool is very popular feature and fun to watch, especially during “Pool Time”  which is when the refs jump in and join the fun.  During the warmer months “Pool Time” is at 10:45 am and 1:45 pm which time you often see a staff  member in the pool swimming, playing, throwing toys, giving surfboard rides or paddle boarding with dogs.  


We have 9,000 sq ft yard of rolling hills covered with pest-free/dirt-free artificial turf, adorned by a 55 ft beach entry swimming lagoon. Other amenities include 9 sunshades, throughout the property, along with 19 trees for plenty of summertime shade. We also have 6 rows of commercial grade misters and 4 industrial grade fans that can cool off the yard 20-25 degrees during those hot summer months.  


By far, we offer more activities and things to do than any other pet resort in Arizona. Our amenities include: a diving plank for the daring jumpers, “floaty rafts” which dogs balance on and jump from floaty to floaty resembling  “doggy leap frog”.  We also have planks that reside a foot above the water for the dogs to walk or run on to get to the island, paddle boarding, surfboard rides, splash pad, 15 foot tug-a-war games, our agility equipment which is set out each afternoon in a fresh new design.  The resort and the many amenities are all provided for the love of the dogs and their enjoyment.

Now that you know all about us and how we’re different from the rest, please give us a call! We want to hear about your pet and answer any questions you may have. It is best all new boarding dogs come in for 1 day of daycare to be evaluated before boarding; certain breeds this is a mandatory requirement before boarding.  This evaluation benefits both us; as we will bemable to determine your dogs temperament and if they are a good fit and you will have piece of mind knowing you’ve made a good choice for your dog before you actually depart on your vacation.   Expect to leave your dog for a minimum of 6 hours or more; this is ample time to get to know your dog and for your dog to adjust to the new surroundings. This daycare/evaluation is $35. (See rates tab for daycare package pricing). Note: shy dogs usually take longer than the first day to embrace and trust everyone one but leaving your dog never make your dog shyer or needier as they board they get with the program and you’ll see them get more and more comfortable and happy as each day passes. 
OUT-OF-TOWN GUESTS: Sometimes we can make exceptions for people coming into town and in need of boarding services.  Partly is it based on the breed and how social your dog is as we can make an exception by getting a reference from another daycare. As stated above if you will be traveling for any extended period of time or through a major holiday it’s in the dog’s best interest to come in for a day of daycare (evaluation) before boarding for a long duration.

Also it is required your dog’s vaccinations are up to date. If your dog isn’t vaccinated with distemper and rabies we’re very sorry but unfortunately your dog will not be allowed to attend unless excused or cleared by your veterinarian for medical reasons. This policy is enforced strictly for the safety/health of your dog and the other dogs at our facility. Bordatella is at your discretion– recommended but not mandatory.  If a sickness is going around we post the symptoms on a laminated sheet hanging from the front desk.  This “sick” list includes dogs name, breed, symptoms, duration they were sick, did they go to vet or not and if so what the vet said or did.   We also include the ratio of how many dogs came and how many got sick during the time the sickness was in the resort– thus far it’s stayed under 5-6% on any sickness.   So be sure to always alert us if your dog does get sick so we are aware, can alert our guests,  and boost up our disinfecting.

Thanks you,
