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 most unique programs in the country. Read on, and see for yourself why we are truly the cadillac in the pet care industry and exceedingly different from the rest.


Dogs have 100% freedom.
They get to roam free and are not put into cages, crates, or private suites 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.


The web cams are live and scan back and forth, inside and out. Your dog is always just a click away from your phone or computer. Did you know we are the ONLY daycare in Scottsdale that has web cams? Other daycares have the camera’s for management, so even though the infrastructure is there, they do not allow public access. Here at Always Unleashed, we want you to see what your pet is up to whenever you please. (no password is needed, just click on the “Live Cam” 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 continuously 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 toys, let alone the throwing of balls, frisbees, tug-a-war, etc. Here at Always Unleashed, we incorporate toys into our Manners Program. We do use alpha rolls (having dog submit on side) frequently to keep the dogs safe and orderly. Toys also help us continuously 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.


The pool is chemical-free with no harsh chlorine or salt. This helps the pool to stay sparking clean, no matter how many dogs are in attendance, 365 days a year. The splash pad and waterfalls are pre-programed to go on 6 times a day. The pool is open from 7am-7pm for the dogs enjoyment. At 11:00am and 2;00pm, the staff will be in the pool swimming with the dogs and giving out surfboard rides to all those who want them. (7 months of the year, weather permitting)


We have 9,000 sq ft yard of rolling hills and pest-free/dirt-free artificial turf, adorned by a 55 ft beach entry swimming lagoon. Other amenities include 9 sunshades, located throughout the property, along with 24 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 20-30 degrees during those hot summer months.


Our amenities here at Always Unleashed include: a diving plank for the daring jumpers, planks that reside a foot above the water for the dogs to walk or run on to get to the island, land planks covered in grass for the dogs to walk across or jump over, 2 underground tunnels and three above ground tunnels. We configure the planks and tunnels differently each day. The resort and amenities are all provided for the benefit of the dogs enjoyment and stimulation.

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. All new dogs need to come in for 1 day of daycare to be evaluated before boarding ($35 fee). We will determine your dogs temperament and if they are a good fit. Expect to leave your dog for a minimum of 6 hours; 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)
OUT-OF-TOWN GUESTS: Sometimes we can make exceptions for people coming into town and in need of boarding services. This is for customers that do not have time or a day available to complete the evaluation before boarding with us. We can make an exception by getting a reference from another daycare. If you will be traveling for any extended period of time, 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 VERY important 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/cleared by your veterinarian. 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. As always our policy is if a sickness is going around we post the symptoms with a list of those dogs and age hanging from the front desk of all those dogs who contracted it. So be sure to always alert us if your dog does get sick so we are aware and can alert others.
