We like to travel, and generally love to bring our dogs with us. But when previous travel plans didn't allow us to bring Marley & Hope, we would have to make other arrangements for them to be looked after...it was always a concern.
After Scott worked in a doggie daycare throughout college, our "passion project" soon evolved into our long-term career goal. With family in the area, and our affinity for animals our goal became clear. Create a beautiful space where both us, and our dogs could feel at home. After a few moves Middleton, was the perfect place to put our roots down. It was within this process that McGrupp's began to take shape.
We have tried to structure our facility so that it has something for every personality type...Lounges, for the lazy couch dwellers. Size specific playrooms, for those with a little more energy, a temperature regulated indoor park to be utilized everyday, but especially on cold/rainy days or hot steamy days. Our large outdoor space is segmented into two separate size specific runs, BOTH Marley (who has had TWO knee surgeries) and Hope, like the feel of the squishy pea gravel under their paws. We have given our overnight guests the option of Lodges or Suites for their stay, depending on their specific requirements. We are a cage and crate free facility, where our guests sleep in our custom built hotel rooms.
Whether it's a half day visit or a week long stay, our goal is the same... Provide a safe off-leash play zone, where dog parents can leave carefree.
Pets are family, bring your dog to McGrupp's and become a part of ours!
Hi! I'm Marley, I'm a 12 year old Chocolate Lab. Some people say I am very wise for my age, my parents think I'm more of a con artist...
I spent most of my time in Portland, Oregon, it was pretty cool, I used to take swims in the river every day, chew on sticks and hike on my own a little bit. My family NOW lives in Middleton, and we love it here!
My sister has a lot of energy she keeps me young...BUT I really would rather just hang out. I like to take in the sun, and relax on one of my two huge dog beds. One of my most popular party tricks is 4 balls in my mouth at one time! It took a lot of practice... BUT I HAVE NAILED IT!!
I pretty much like whatever toy my sister is playing with at the time...But my MOST favorite is a big long elephant, that I got for Christmas.
Looking forward to hanging out on the couches with all my new friends at McGRUPP'S!!
Hi! I'm Hope, I am almost 5 years old. My mom rescued me, and they told her I was a cocker spaniel mix.
I have lived ALL OVER...New York City, Oregon, Boston & NOW Middleton!
I love kids, and my absolute favorite is, well...Anything that rolls! Tennis Balls, Baseballs, Golf Balls, pretty much any ball...
My Favorite Vacation was when we moved across the country and we got to stop at a lot of fun lakes, and scenic spots!
I am a VERY HAPPY girl, and I love my brother Marley very much! Looking forward to meeting and playing with all my new friends at McGRUPP'S!!
Meet the Team
Hi, I'm Sam! I have the best job and love taking care of animals. I have been with Mcgrupps for just over 3 years now. Though I started off as a daycare attendant, I am now the resident groomer here as well. I have always been an animal lover, and have found my true passion in pet care. I thoroughly enjoy getting to know every fur baby and pet parent that walks through the doors, whether it’s for a day of play or a spa day!
Hello, My name is Jobeth but everyone usually calls me Jo. I've worked at McGrupp's for 2 years now and couldn't be happier being able to see and take care of your dogs everyday!! I grew up with many dogs and have always known that I wanted to be surrounded by them my whole life. Being able to spend time with them is the highlight of my day. I look forward to meeting you and your pups!!
Hello! My name is Heather and I have been a daycare attendant here at McGrupp’s since March 2018. The previous four years I was living in Australia where I became a Registered Nurse, concentrating in cardiac medicine. I moved back to Massachusetts at the beginning of last year and was welcomed to work at McGrupp’s while working on my nursing registration in the United States. Animals have always been a huge part of my life. My family has loved rescuing German Shepherd dogs! I have recently adopted a German Shepherd puppy and am so excited to bring her into my family! I have absolutely loved working at McGrupp’s, especially creating relationships with the other attendants and all of the amazing dogs! I always leave work with a huge smile on my face. I am so happy to be working here and look forward to continue working with you and your furry family members!
Hi, I’m Cassidy! For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to work with animals of all kinds. Thanks to McGrupp’s I’ve been living the dream for nearly a year now! Learning the different personalities of each and every dog over time is such an adventure. After a couple of daycare visits, chances are I’ll know your pup like he/she was my very own. You can normally find me in the daycare rooms smooching all the pups and/or roaming the halls offering a helping hand. I look forward to meeting you and your future McGrupp’s pup!
