Dog Daycare


If you’re looking for a fun and safe environment for your best friend while you’re at work or away for the day, our doggy daycare activities are just what you and your dog need. At Elaine’s Pet Resorts, dogs enjoy an action-packed day filled with play, exercise and rest at both our Fresno and Madera locations. Under the supervision of our trained staff, our doggy daycare guests receive positive social interaction in either a group play or personal play that will leave your dog tuckered out at the end of the day!

New Daycare Guests

Our top priority is the safety of your pet. At first check-in, you will need to complete a questionnaire in order that we can better understand how your dog plays and behaves. If your dog has any known sensitivities or allergies, please let our knowledgeable front desk staff know.

Seasonal Events

We love having fun with all of our guests and nothing says fun like festive pictures! Throughout the year we offer exciting photoshoots for your best friend! Not only will they be able to come and play, but will enjoy dressing up and posing in the season’s cutest costumes.

For the health and safety of our guests, we require up-to- date vaccinations for Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, Canine Influenza H3N2 and H3N8 and Bordetella. Proof of vaccinations is required prior to all visits. Records can be emailed to vaccines@elainespetresorts.com.



Supervised Dog Waterpark!

Our beachfront entry waterpark pools await your dog at Elaine’s Pet Resorts’ Doggy Daycare! The warm Central Valley summers and mild winters allow your best friend to romp around the waterpark and splash through the fountains in either group or personal play. For dogs who may be new to the water or are shy, our beach-front entry pools allow for pets to enter at their own comfort level.

Each water park includes a large cabana, so pets can lounge comfortably in the shade and watch all of the action. Our play yards are fitted with canine turf (which means cleaner dogs!) and filled with dog safe toys to make the experience even more enjoyable. All playgroups are broken down by size and play style; small dogs will play with small dogs and big dogs with big dogs. Dogs who play better one-on-one with a human companion can have personal play sessions in the water park as well.

Elaine’s has been truly wonderful. I appreciate knowing that my energetic pup gets to socialize and have fun playing all day while I am at work. I am grateful for the employees who are always so excited to see Islay when she comes in.

My experience with Elaine’s has always been positive, starting with when I called to inquire about the offerings. The front staff is welcoming, friendly, and always professional. The handlers are fantastic, very good with all the dogs. One of the reasons for starting Bailie at Elaine’s was to get her used to being around other people and dogs. I wanted her to be social so that we could take her anywhere, and she would be fine. It’s worked; Bailie is a lovable, happy, special little princess.
