Wow ! This place is so amazing! My 2 dogs had a blast and came home so exhausted! I would give them a 10 star if I could.

Highly recommend this place for daycare and boarding! My husband I found ourselves in a pinch when our dog care plans for a long weekend fell through last minute. The staff was incredibly kind and empathetic of our predicament, and they were able to accommodate 3 days of boarding for our two dogs with essentially zero notice. The facility is also extremely clean and secure, and the overnight setup seems so fun for the pups -- it's like a giant slumber party!

Our puppy LOVES Dioji. He gets so excited when we drop him off. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The facilities are clean. The hours are great. Just can't say enough great things about it.

Had a great experience boarding my pup here. I drove in from out of town and went through the first-time board process where they watch your dog for a period of time to ensure the dog assimilates well with the group. Dioji communicated really well leading up to drop off which I appreciated so I understood the check in process, vax requirements, etc. First time boarders were provided a complimentary bath. Seemed like my pup had a fun time and they have a nice space for play and lots of dog fun. Would definitely return here.

I started bringing my 4 month old puppy there and it has been the best ever for us both. He is thrilled to be there and runs in to the office. I work from home and I love the idea that Hayden can be with friends a few days a week. He comes home happy and tired. A huge perk is that you don't need reservations and can drop off any day at any time. That has been a great asset to me for spontaneous changes in my coaching client schedule.The staff are consistent and good at answering any questions and encourage check ins during the day. There are people in with the dogs at all times and they have a good walkie talkie system.One day I talked to one of the staff more in depth; she is a college student and ended up working at Dioji as an experiment. However now she loves it in part because "The owners are really nice people". That kind of good management trickles down into the water bowls.One other point to note: Last week I was picking up my dog, and heard the staff talking to a pet owner stating that they didn't think their dog was a good match for Dioji at this time. They do vet (pun intended) the dogs that come in and that was infinitely reassuring. To be able to say no in any profession is important.Don't worry - your dog will be fine at Dioji.
