Our Story

ÜBERDOG was inspired by my dog and best friend, Tyson, in 2006.

The motivation to create a super-dog Playcare occurred during one of the countless business trips that I had taken for my other life in Corporate America. I had always been skeptical of leaving Tyson at a kennel as I couldn’t stand the thought of dogs being crated alone for the better part of a day with no playtime. I would actually drive 2 hours out of state to bring Tyson to my parent’s house where I could rest assured that he would be happy and safe while I was away. I knew that I could build a better place for dogs and dog lovers alike. After a year of brainstorming with Tyson to figure out what dogs really want, ÜBERDOG was born. And the mission to create a community for dogs and enthusiastic dog owners was successful.

While Tyson has since passed, the inspiration and drive behind ÜBERDOG continues to thrive to this day. First-time visitors wonder why they ever took their dog to any other kennel or daycare. We pride ourselves on selling and using eco-friendly products from grass-roots businesses as well as striving to embrace our local community and charities. Our trained employees, who we call “Wagologists”, make sure every dog is safe and having the very best time. Health, well-being, and community involvement are all things that we value.

It’s amazing, the joy that a dog can bring into your life. One thing is true, like us, every dog has a journey… ÜBERDOG’s promise is to fill every journey with health, happiness, and adventure. I hope to see you and your dog soon!

Hi there! My name is Tyson and my Dad owns this place. His friends call him Dan O’Brien, but to me he’s just Dad…

Back in 2008, my Dad was working countless hours in corporate America and I spent most of my days staying home alone and restless. As an energetic Lab, I needed my exercise and socialization. My Dad finally came to his senses and began taking me to Doggy Daycare.

Unfortunately, many of the Doggy Daycares that I went to weren’t really fun. We had limited playtime, small play areas, and some of the places were just plain dirty. Not my idea of fun at all!

After having a little talk with my Dad, he realized that I needed a more active, social, and healthy environment where I could play with my friends all day long and get that necessary exercise that I required. A place where my Dad can come and watch me play if he wants! A place that answers the million-dollar question…What Do Dogs Want?

He said, “Tyson, you deserve better…Every Dog Deserves Better!”
