About Happy Pets Palace & Playground

Voted Best Pet Boarding Service in Mesa, AZ 2015 and 2016!

We maintain a fun, safe and clean environment. Let your dog experience a full day of in/out climate controlled playgrounds for daycare and boarding. With four play yards, we have the luxury to pair similar size dogs together. Teacup dogs play with other 10-pound and under dainty petite dogs. We know that petite dogs require more human touch to feel reassured and safe. Our dog facility is unique in that it takes extra precautions for the teacup dogs. Your dogs will be safe and protected in our first-rate clean facility.

Dogs who complete our friendly personality analysis will enjoy a fun, playful, comfortable and calming experience, by caring and knowledgeable staff.  The large facility is climate controlled both inside and outdoors.

We are here to serve the busy pet owners and want to be convenient on your route to work, travel or activities. To ensure our success and growth in the pet industry we will continually provide love and gentleness that pets away from home need so much. We have learned through our many years of pet care how to communicate, observe, and respond to different types of dog needs.

Because we partner with Arizona Going Green, we are aware of our footprint in our environment. In addition to making our facility more energy efficient, the cleaning agents we use are biodegradable, pet friendly, human friendly, and earth friendly! We ask each of our employees to have a personal sustainability goal and a pet project volunteer goal, both of which are proudly displayed in our employee break room.

The staff enjoys a friendly family-like environment with the best furry clients ever! All of the workers participate in semi-annual pet training including pet CPR and safety measures for living in Arizona heat. Employees are encouraged and given opportunities for continued learning in the pet industry field so they can be promoted within and grow personally.


  • We offer live-stream webcams which allow you to go online and watch your dog playing.

  • We provide four separate playgrounds for dog daycare where we place dogs in appropriate playgroups based on the dog’s size and play temperament.

  • Our indoor dog park settings are climate controlled and come with dog playground equipment both inside and outside.

  • Our furry dog guests can enjoy above-ground swimming pools for free!

  • Dogs boarding with us enjoy free dog daycare.  You will appreciate knowing the pet boarding cost upfront because our flat-rate all inclusive pricing has no hidden charges.  Your dog’s medications, doggy store time, dog daycare, dog swim time, doggy playground equipment and dog interactions with our trained and loving staff is all included!

  • Because dog safety is one of our top priorities, our staff is trained with The Dog Gurus method of dog behavior and dog group play.  We are also certified in Pet First Aid and Pet CPR through the American Health and Safety Institute.

  • Outdoor potty break at 10PM and late night staff monitoring the dogs.

  • All dogs coming for boarding or daycare must pass our prescreening evaluation to make sure they are non-aggressive and appropriate for dog-dog group play.  All dogs must be current on rabies, distemper, bordatella and neutered/spayed if over 6 months of age.  Call us today for your dog’s pre-screening evaluation so your dog can come make new friends at doggy daycare!


While most dogs are considered for daycare, in-person physical assessments can result in disappointment when a dog is not accepted into group play.

Not all dogs are meant for dog-dog group play at Happy Pets Palace & Playground. After initial conversation with pet parents, we conduct a 5-step prescreening process which can take up to 4-hours. It is important we consider the new dog’s capability to be integrated into our current play groups while maintaining integrity and balance. We hold these standard for the safety, well-being, and many other considerations of all attendants, human and canine.

Welcome to all newcomers integrating into our family at Happy Pets Palace & Playground. For those who are unable to join our dog-dog group play, we understand you may be disappointed. We are in the process of seeking out a second facility in the East Valley that will be able to accommodate all dogs because that location will have a separate area for dogs who do not participate in group play. We will announce our second facility location and opening timeframe when more details are finalized.
