Animal Cottage Services

Fun, Loving And Safe Dog care Experience

Overnight Lodging

Whether you are only going to be gone overnight or will be away for several days, you should never entrust your canine/feline companion’s care to just anyone. Leaving your precious pup/kitty overnight is a huge deal, stressful, and you need someone you can trust to keep them safe and happy while you’re away. For dog/cat boarding in Hayward Wisconsin and the surrounding areas, look no further than Animal Cottage. Your dog will love enjoying their very own vacation in our Country setting facility.

Your dog/cat will enjoy the year-round comfort and safety in our heated and air-conditioned facility. Regular potty breaks, maid service, room service, and two private off-leash recesses are included daily.

Dog Grooming/Bathing

Animal Cottage is Hayward’s ultimate pet destination where comfort meets community. We are an innovative, bathing only dog grooming salon that is geared towards all dogs.

With a completely upgraded grooming facility, we can service your pet with ease.  We are proud to provide a safe, relaxing environment where your pet will receive the best care available. Our trained dog bathers offer start to finish dog bath and brush out services with a 60 – 120 minute turnaround time without any breed restrictions. We provide baths 7 days a week.

We bathe dogs of all shapes, sizes and coats. Don’t forget to bring your puppy in young, it’s a great way for them to experience the sounds of a bathing  salon.

We do our very best to give an accurate quote over the phone, and you’re also welcome to stop by for more information. However as long as your dog comes to us in the same condition each time their price should remain about the same.

When you bring you dog to us for bathing, they will be treated like a member of our family every step of the way!

daycare Lodging

We know how busy lives can get, that’s why we are here to help!  Animal Cottage Dog daycare in Hayward, Wisconsin provides unequaled dog daycare services. Because we love dogs and have many years of experience and knowledge in handling your doggy’s needs, no matter their size or personality, we are committed to you and your pooch. Your dog will experience a fun, rich day filled with positive reinforcement and relaxation but with enough space to be themselves. Locally owned, we give your dog lots of hugs and kisses because, at Animal Cottage your pets are our family too!

Nature Walks

Your dog receives one-on-one attention when out for their walk. Members of our staff will actively walk your dog, and only your dog, so that they can focus on the walk and not being pulled in several directions. In doing this activity your dog gets to enjoy our local trails along with any wildlife they may come across.

Aside from picking up a happy dog from the Animal Cottage’s full-day daycare or lodging, dog walks provide numerous benefits for our four-legged friends:

  • Controls weight
  • Builds strong muscles
  • Improves blood flow & oxygen
  • Stimulates the mind
  • Reduces destructive behavior
  • A walk a day keeps the vet away!


Feed your dog’s need for exercise and mental stimulation with nature walks that are fun and exciting adventure hikes around our facility. In the process they are strengthening their heart and body, giving them a better chance at a healthier, longer life. We highly recommend these walks for our lodging clients. Just a few of the added benefits are a change of scenery, fresh air and even a break from doggie friends.
