Cinnamon is a gorgeous Labrador Retriever, playfully known as "Pig". Labs are full of energy and always ready to play!
Cinnamon enjoys playing with all her friends and is very popular with the fella's. She loves birthday parties here at the grove, because she gets lots of treats!! But don't tell her parents, they think she is on a diet ;)
Cinnamon has several good daycare buddies but is especially bonded with Emmett !

“Art” is a bloodhound, of course, who loves doggy daycare!
He loves small, medium and large dogs but his best buddy is “Sherman”
a Portuguese Water Dog.
Art has a zest for life and his rich chocolate eyes just melt your heart with one glance. Art wakes up happy and goes to sleep happy, he just makes you want to smile when your around him.
The Bloodhound is one of the oldest original scent hounds, "The actual term "Bloodhound" refers not to what the Bloodhound trails but instead refers to its status as the "blooded hound," meaning aristocratic, since such great lengths were taken early on to keep the strain clean."
Tucker has been a regular at The Grove for quite awhile now, Tucker loves the ball....LOVES THE BALL!!!!
Tucker also enjoys frisbee and loves the taste of Green Tripe.
Tucker is aging gracefully but the long frolics in the field are abit much for him now a days, so Tucker will retire from daycamp this month. We will miss the dedicated and enthusiastic ball time.
We will still get to see Tucker when Mom and Dad go on vacation and Tucker's little brother Charlie will still be here on Fridays! (Hopefully, Tucker will enjoy a nice quiet friday while we wear Charlie out!)
Here comes Osa ! Osa is a full throttle rocket from the get go ! Osa runs as clean as a greyhound and corners perhaps better than one too ! She is all Yellow Labrador though and loves to go off hunting with her family and chasing the ball in our open fields.
Osa has been raised on a all raw diet which her parents get directly from Columbia River Feed. Osa is bright eyed and healthy!
Osa has the most interesting bark, it is like a song almost. Her bark and her ability to streak across the field after a ball are just two of her unique charms.
Osa gets along with every dog I have ever seen her meet and she is in the same happy mood every time I have seen her! All the other dogs tire well before Osa is even out of breath !
Osa is a hunting line Lab and as you can see has tons of energy, fortunatley her family has taken that energy and kept it productive and provide her with lots of activities to keep her busy both mentally and physically.

Dallas is a purebred Yellow Labrador who has been coming to daycare since he was a puppy. We have had the joy of watching him grow up into a big boy with a zest for life ! Dallas is full of tail wags, barks and love. The Labrador is often labeled the most popular dog in the United States, according to the American Kennel Club they are the #1 registered breed. The Labrador is traditionally a hunting dog, they do require a good foundation of training and socialization to harness all that instinct and energy!
Dallas began daycare as a puppy with Bogey the bloodhound and they became great friends, Bogey moved to the East Coast with his parents and Dallas clearly missed him ! Since Bogey left, Dallas has been trying to get Kaya interested in him and is really enjoying spending time with Milo the Doxy!
Seadog the Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Recently, Seadog traveled with her Dad and got to actually play in the Chesapeake Bay for which her breed is named. A Breed Pilgrimage so to speak! Seadog is a regular here at the Grove and we really enjoy her company. She is one of our top ball chasers and best of all she brings it back everytime ;) I haven't met very many Chesapeakes, but if they are all like Seadog I can certainly understand the breed admiration. Now, Seadog is a bit dramatic at times and very vocal when she is excited. She does not bark alot but she has amazing vocal abilities which almost reach a schriek when she is very excited and telling you about her day! Her stamina is amazing but she does love to cuddle and enjoys belly rubs before and after ball time. I am of course aware of most the retriever breeds and their amazing ability to "retrieve" but Seadog still amazes me with her uncanny ability and dedication to "retrieving" !
Isis is a Rottweiler. The Rottweiler is an easily recognizable breed to most americans due to unfavorable media in the 1980's. In fact, the Rottweiler is an intelligent, gentle and beautiful dog. Isis, whose full name Isis vom Mortiz-Bergberg, is an incredible ambassador for her breed and for dogs in general. A few accomplishments from her resume include: * CGC (Canine Good Citizen) award * Isis and owner/handler are Charter Members of DOG (Dog Outreach Group) * Registered PetPartners for animal assisted activites with the Delta Society * In 2007 Isis and owner/handler successfully passed the required classroom work and assessment test and are members of the PAAA/T Program (Providence St. Peter’s Animal Assisted Activities and Therapy). Isis is the first Rottweiler in the program. Isis and her team partner Finley were the first “team” (two dogs and two handlers) in the program in over 10 years. Isis and Finley visit the hospital twice a month on the Adolescent Chemical Dependency Unit and on the First Floor of the hospital. They have also visited on the Medical Rehabilitation Unit. * Isis has her AKC “PT” title in herding sheep and her ASCA “started” title in ducks We are so lucky to be able to spend at least one day week with Isis, she is especially helpful when we have young puppies in daycare. Her calm and confident demeanor instantly attract puppies to her side. Isis has many friends but especially Orione and Emma.
