Benefits of Indoor and Outdoor Runs


Here in Arizona, it can be hard to keep cool once the temperatures start heating up – especially for our furry canine companions. With weeks on end of triple-digit temperatures, summertime can be a tough time for humans and dogs alike.

Keeping your dog active usually means trips to the dog park, long walks through your neighborhood, or even a few games of fetch in the backyard. But in our summer heat, being outside isn’t just uncomfortable; it can be downright dangerous.

And why should you consider indoor activities for dogs during summer? We’ll break it all down to show you how to make this a safe, super-fun summer for your four-legged friend.

Benefits of Dog Boarding in Summer

There are plenty of perks to playing indoors, especially in summer in the Valley.

Regular exercise for even the most energetic dogs

A bored dog with pent-up energy is usually a recipe for disaster – in fact, destructive behaviors and other frustrating issues often indicate that your dog needs more activity. Indoor dog runs in Phoenix have set-ups where dogs can run, jump, and chase each other in cool, air-conditioned comfort. So, they’ll come home ready to relax, but you won’t have to worry about them overdoing it in the heat.

You can stay cool too

Even the most dedicated dog moms and dads struggle to get outside with their dogs during the summer. It’s just too hot for anyone, whether you’re human or canine. When you bring your dog to a facility with indoor runs and play spaces, you can save yourself the hassle (and the sweat) of summertime walks.

The flexibility to make your summer stress-free

Especially during summer, schedules can get busy. Between work, summer activities for kids, and travel plans, figuring out how to keep your dog entertained and active is tough.

But at Canine Country Club & Feline Inn, we’re helping you ditch the stress this summer. We offer a wide range of flexible options for dog boarding and daycare, including half days, full days, daily rates, and packages. Whether you just need us for the day or you’re searching for a summer full of fun for your dog, we have a solution to suit you.

Why Our Dog Boarding in Phoenix is the Best Place to Beat the Heat

Even if your apartment or home has air-conditioning, it probably doesn’t have the large, open spaces that dogs need to run around and burn off their excess energy. And when you have a busy schedule, it gets even more challenging to fit in active play with your pet. But that’s where dog boarding comes in.

A well-equipped facility set up for safety, comfort, and fun

At Canine Country Club & Feline Inn, our Phoenix dog boarding has it all: private, climate-controlled indoor runs for each dog or dog family, spacious indoor playpens with A/C, plenty of water and snacks, and a staff of enthusiastic dog lovers.

Every day, dogs come to our friendly facility to play, socialize with their canine pals, and get lots of attention and cuddles from our team.

Dogs have the freedom to move around and relax when they want to

Unlike many Phoenix kennels for dogs, where summer weather means no access to outdoor runs, dog runs at Canine Country Club & Feline Inn have the best of both worlds. Our combination indoor/outdoor runs give your dog the freedom to move around as they please.

They can see what their neighbors are up to by stepping into the outdoor portion of their private run, then head back in to cool off and enjoy some quiet time.

Trained staff that love what they do

Everyone who works at Canine Country Club & Feline Inn has a passion for pets, so you can be confident that your dog is in great hands. One of the many reasons we’ve been a top provider of doggie daycare and pet boarding in Phoenix for so many years is our stellar staff. Friendly, compassionate, and professional, they’ll keep a watchful eye on your beloved buddy and make sure every dog is safe, happy, and comfortable.
