The San Jose city codes make it almost impossible for dog boarding/lodging and daycare facilities to have an outdoor space where the dogs can play. Santa Clara, Sunnyvale and other cities do allow some outdoor space.
We have been so lucky with our space in Gilroy—we have 2 outdoor play yards, both with shade structures, and, even better, when we are closed for drop off/pick up on Major Public Holidays, we close down the parking lot, and the dogs get to go out and run and romp and stomp and swim and have the times of their lives! Our outdoor play yards are easy to sanitize, there are pools for the hotter days, and we even have grass for the comfort of the dogs paws. Come on by for a tour!!
