Doggie Days Daycare and Boarding has started building a new home for new paws to play in come this fall.
Tim and Kristy Peters, owners of the boarding business currently at 3309 N. Carson St., suite 1, have broken ground on an acre at 2405 S. Curry St. and hope to open their new facility in mid-October.
“This has been a lifelong dream of mine,” Kristy Peters said.
Plans for their 1-acre, two-building daycare center will allow for the boarding of 42 dogs, with one building dedicated to kennels and the other to indoor play with fire sprinklers inside.
“That’s state of the art for this type of business,” Tim said.
There will be six outdoor yards with artificial grass, and the dogs will have access to their own pools.
“We let the dogs be dogs,” Kristy said. “It’s mainly about socializing and getting them to play. While the owners are at work, they get worn out and we’re getting them to interact with their own species. They can play and stay.”
Doggie Days will accept any breed, announcing it will be extending its hours currently from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. once the new site is open with dropbox doors and keys to be available as well for owners who wish to pick up pets after hours.
Kristy said the location on South Curry was ideal because it was safely confined in the cul-de-sac amongst neighbors that include Vital Signs Graphics and Marketing and Greenhouse Garden Center along the heavily traveled road.
The contractor for the project is Gary Gladwill, owner of F&G Construction Ltd.
Kristy said as long as the project progresses without any unexpected delays, the current location would remain open until January.
The Peters family of six, including daughters Brynlee, 9, Braylee, 7, Emmi, 6, and Brea, 3, are avid dog owners themselves with five in their home and looking to adopt a sixth soon, Kristy said.
“We cannot wait to serve Carson City residents and all our furry friends for many years to come,” Kristy said.
