Learn more about dog thrive and our passion for dogs


Safety and health is our top priority


Dog Thrive provides an opportunity and encourages your dog to stay active, exercise, and to interact with other dogs. During playtime, there will be a staff member overlooking every dog in daycare 100% of the time.

We have teamed up with a local veterinarian and we will have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year access to a veterinarian if anything needs immediate attention. To give you extra peace of mind, all dogs are separated by personality, energy, and size so you can rest assure that your companion dog will be placed in a group where our educated staff has determined it fits best to succeed.

Dog Thrive is not just a place for your dog to be left for the day. We want your dog to be as comfortable as possible, socialize as much as possible, and get a proper amount of exercise. We believe we can accommodate dogs of all sizes, ages, and energy. In the daycare play area, we have installed top of the line rubberized flooring which helps dogs with joint or hip issues. It also helps prevent these same issues as it adds comfort for the dog. This is great for your dog in the long term.

Partnering with the best to provide the best care

Dog Thrive is a proud partner with the Animal Behavior College, where some Dog Thrive staff members become certified dog trainers and where all of our staff become certified in dog CPR. By providing our employees with top of the line education, Dog Thrive ensures their employees to be the most educated and best daycare dog staff around.

Dog Thrive currently works with City Dogs Rescue in Washington, D.C. and Homeward Trails in Arlington, VA by fostering and boarding rescued dogs at our center. Dog Thrive President Matthew Stewart is also the head in house trainer for Homeward Trails.
