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, creates, 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 due to the evolution of our Manners Program which is being conducted continuously each day to secure safety, order, and establish hierarchy. See our Facebook page (link above or below) for a video of some of our Manner drills. It is very rare to find any doggy daycare center that allows toys, let alone the throwing of balls. Here at Always Unleashed we use toys within our Manners Program and throw balls/frisbees each and every day. Toys also help us continuously test dogs responsiveness to the staff. Other places ban toys-here we provide an abundance of them. Note: Our toys are guaranteed by the manufacture to be indestructible which keeps intestinal tracts safe from accidental ingestion.


The pool has state of the art commercial grade equipment enabling the pool to stay sparking clean, no matter how many dogs, 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 10:30-1:30 the staff will always 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)


9,000 sq ft yard of rolling hills of pest and dirt free artificial turf adorned by a 55 ft beach entry swimming lagoon, 9 sunshades located throughout the property along with 24 trees for plenty of summer time shade. We also have 6 rows of commercial grade misters that can cool off the yard 20-30 degrees during those hot summer months.


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 one above ground tunnel we configure 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 us we’d love to hear about you and your pet! The process starts by giving us a call and telling us about your dog and we’ll answer any questions you may have about us. Next, we’ll set up an appointment for your dog to have a “comfort” test. Expect to leave your dog for a minimum of 6 hours. We need this time to evaluate his/her temperament and see how comfortable your dog is here. This is ample time to get to know your dog and for your dog to get to know us, the new surroundings, and to see how he/she does with some new friends. The cost is $20 (additional dog $10). (local Az residents only who will be establishing long term relationship) Out of town-ers pay normal daycare rate.
Sometimes if customers are traveling last minute or they are from out-of-town we can make exceptions with the comfort test but it depends on the breed and getting a reference from another daycare center they attended. But if traveling for any extended period of time, it’s in the dogs best interest to come in for the Comfort Test before they stay the night.

Also BE SURE your vaccination are up to date, if your dog isn’t vaccinated, we’re sorry but your dog will not be allowed to attend unless excused and cleared by your veterinarian. Looking forward to meeting you and hopefully your dog can get “unleashed” and become part of our family.

Always Unleashed Pet Resort –

A place where dogs come together just to have some “dog gone” fun.

* Coming in 2014 We will be using the upstairs to create an indoor/outdoor Tiny Town; for little dogs (dogs 15lbs or smaller). They will soon have their own playground upstairs with a grass covered porch. Also when the big dogs are inside taking a break the the little land will come down stairs to frolic in the pool if desired.

Presently we have a “Safari Room for Cats”; a few huge cage-free rooms!–that is until tiny town is built.
