Meet Ziggy! He might be small but he is mighty! Ziggy has been using our daycare and boarding facilities since he was a young pup. Ziggy has the biggest personality, he loves to greets everyone with a wagging tail and bunny hops. He loves playing with all dogs big and small. Ziggy puts an instant smile on all of our faces and we love having him around, he comes with one side effect, he give you the giggles. This photo of Ziggy is one of a kind, as he never stays still; he can be like the Flash! We are grateful that Ziggy is a part of our extended family!

Dog Daycare

Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® in Virginia Beach and Newport News includes over 12,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor space for our guests. They are able to play throughout the day in a home-like setting. Your dog will be free to socialize with other dogs while being properly supervised by our Camp Counselors in a cage-free environment. Our boarding guests remain outside of their kennels up to 10 hours a day. Any needed behavior modification is based on positive reinforcement and physical praise.

With such a full day in store for your dog, and in order to maintain a cage-free environment, we understand the need for some quiet time.

Naptime is from 1:00 to 2:00 every day. The dogs are provided with comfortable bedding, the lights are dimmed, the door is locked and no visitors are allowed.

Our Camp Counselors are on hand to supervise while they rest in our indoor gymnasium. Dogs are neither admitted nor removed during naptime as disruptions can cause irritability, restlessness and discontentment amongst the entire group.

Special Needs Pet Care

We at Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® believe that our guests are unique and strive to give extra special care during their stay; however, some pets may require even more care. We cater to the young, elderly, and special needs pets.

Proper puppy care can be a daunting and challenging task. Puppies do not come with instructions nor do they follow the rules. No matter how hard you may try, puppies always seem to be one step ahead of you. Puppies demand a lot of attention and we at Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® strive to give our youngest guests the extra special care and attention they need during their stay.

Older dogs are given the compassion they deserve. Their bodies are beginning to slow down and the wear and tear of their youth has started to take its toll. We at Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® have the love and patience to help your older baby. We understand that your older pet tires more easily, is slower, may suffer from stiff joints and have the same aches and pains that we do. We take this into consideration. We make sure that your pet has a moderate level of exercise which will improve his circulation and keep joints moving. We also provide opportunities for plenty of fresh air and more frequent times to relieve themselves.

Pets with medical issues or disabilities pose a great opportunity for Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® Counselors to show just how special they are. We understand what a joy they are to you and that they can live a happy, normal life. Dogs that are not accepted by other doggy daycare facilities are welcomed by our warm and loving staff. Throughout the day, your pet will be given exercise, attention and lots of love.

And of course, whatever your pet’s special needs are, we can provide individualized attention and TLC… from extra bathroom breaks for puppies, special feeding or attention for that older dog, or medication for your special needs pet. All dogs will receive exceptional care at Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts®.


Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® highly recommends placing reservations at least 2 weeks in advance, especially during peak seasons and holidays. Reservations are made on a first come, first serve basis. We encourage first-time guests to schedule their evaluation at least 48 hours prior to their check-in. We will do our best to accommodate last minute reservations.

Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® encourages owners to provide food in a labeled container, supplying enough for the entire stay. Maintaining your pet’s diet by bringing their own food will prevent any intestinal upset and help them feel more at home. It’s also beneficial to bring favorite toys, beds, and/or personal items. If these items are not provided by the owner then we will make them available to the guest.

Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts® has dog daycare at our Diamond Springs location, serving Virginia Beach and Norfolk, and our Newport News at Oyster Point location
