Classy Canines started as an in-home dog daycare and boarding business. Jessica was working part-time at a groom shop when they decided to start this venture. When the groom shop she was working for closed during the pandemic, they hired on the other groomers that were left without jobs and absorbed a large majority of those clients. The local zoning board forced them to relocate to a commercial space in March of 2021. Jason and Jessica did a majority of the work themselves and contracted out the rest to completely remodel what was the old Madcap Puppet Theater. They love what they do and it shows!
Dogs are pack animals and are happiest when they can spend time with other dogs. We have two separate play groups. Our "Littles" room is for smaller or more timid/older dogs. They have their own outside play yard and a baby pool to swim in on hot days. While inside, we play dog movies, play with toys or just cuddle. The "Bigs" room is for our bigger and higher energy pups. Our facility offers plenty of things to keep your pup busy. There is a 2 1/2 foot stock tank for swimming, sprinklers, water guns, and bubbles in the summer. Our goal is that your pup is tired at the end of the day and ready to relax with you when you pick them up. A tired dog is a happy dog!

We do require dogs to be spayed or neutered by their first birthday (some sooner if behavior becomes an issue). However, we can make exceptions for working dogs or giant breeds that require them to be more mature, AS LONG AS, we aren't seeing any issues. These exceptions are on a case by case basis and will depend on the individual dog.
Dogs must also be up to date on their rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordetella vaccine. We highly recommend the canine influenza and any others that your vet deems necessary for group play. We are not liable for any injury or illness involved in group play.
We also require them to have a temperament test with us before you can book any reservations to make sure they are a good fit for our group. Not all dogs are a good fit for the daycare environment and that is okay. A dog can be comfortable with 1 or 2 other dogs but can easily get overwhelmed in a group of 20 or more. Our goal is for your furry friend to enjoy their stay with us. It only takes about 10 minutes. Call to schedule your temperament test today!
We aren't your typical kennel! We believe dogs should be exercised during the day so they are tired at night. Dogs are happier, less stressed and less destructive when their energy is spent. We play during the day so they can relax and rest at night. At least half a day of daycare is included with all boarding stays (usually more). Boarding dogs will be given breaks from daycare as we see fit. We have a few different options for boarding. Our suites come in two sizes, single/regular and double/large. We also offer an open boarding option in our small daycare for small pups. This is a great option for dogs that don't do well in a crate or are used to having free roam at home. The last option is the Penthouse. It is set up like a living room with dog beds, a couch, and TV. Our overnight employee stays in this room at night. Dogs staying in the Penthouse MUST be completely housebroken. WE ALWAYS HAVE STAFF ON SITE OVERNIGHT!!!
For boarding, dogs must be spayed or neutered by their first birthday, up to date on Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, and the Bordetella vaccines. All dogs must have a temperament test done BEFORE booking. Not all dogs are a good fit for a group boarding facility. Our goal is to provide the best possible experience for your pup. We do REQUIRE dogs that wish to board be active daycare clients unless otherwise approved. If you have boarded with us prior, please reach out.
Boarding is set up like a hotel. Drop off times are anytime after 1 PM and pick up times are anytime before 12 PM. This allows us time to clean suites between dogs. You can request an early drop off or late pick up for $10 per dog.

WE DO NOT PROVIDE FOOD during boarding stays!
You are required to provide food during their stay. A change in diet can cause gastrointestinal upset. Other things that you can bring, if you choose, are a bed, blanket or towel that smells like home and a toy or bone.
We have five groomers currently on staff. We offer standard pet cuts, breed standard cuts, specialty cuts and several creative grooming options to make your pup look their very best. Each of our groomers have their niche and are great with the dogs. Our grooming room is open for all to see as soon as you walk in the door. It is clean, bright, and spacious. We only use top of the line products to get the best possible result. Our shampoos are made by EZ Groom and are all natural. We offer teeth brushing, nail polish, bow ties, color, booty bling, feathers, paw soaks and balm and probiotic shampoo.
Grooming prices are based on size, coat type, condition and the amount of work involved more than just the breed. This helps make pricing more fair across the board with all the designer mixes. The prices listed below are just estimates, the final price will be determined by condition of the dog, behavior and services rendered. We are here to provide the best possible service for your furry friend. Your groomer will go over your groom at drop off and be able to quote you a more accurate price. We are NOT the cheapest.
All grooms include a bath, nail trim, ears cleaned, brush out (extra charge for dematting or deshedding), haircut, bow/bandana and cologne. We also have several add on services available.
We believe in humanity over vanity and will NOT demat an excessively matted dog. If shaving is necessary, we will contact you prior to continuing the groom. If you can not be reached in a timely manner, your appointment may need to be rescheduled.
If your dog becomes too aggressive or scared and it becomes unsafe to continue, we will discontinue the groom and contact you immediately. Some dogs may need a sedative from a licensed vet.
Our day is based on appointments, therefore, if you are more then 10-15 minutes late (depending on the dog), we may ask you to reschedule to keep the remaining appointments on schedule. There will be a $20 fee for NO SHOW appts and a $10 fee for late cancelations, please call ASAP to cancel if you can't make it. Our groomers are paid on commission, if a dog doesn't show up, they don't get paid. If no shows or tardiness become an issue, we will not be able to schedule another appointment for you.

Prices based on size, coat type, condition of the coat and the amount of work involved in the groom itself. Breed is taken into consideration but is not the sole factor. These are starting prices, your groomer will be able to give you a more accurate estimate after seeing your pup. (Lean dogs for their size will be bumped up to the next price level, a lot of doodles fall under this category)
These services can be added on top of a groom or bath. If your dog has special needs, we do have a few add on packages to accommodate them, just ask!
