Located just north of Atlanta, funnybones
offers cage-free day play for happy, well-socialized dogs and
cozy, private pens for extended stays.
At funnybones dogs have 5,000 sq ft of
indoor/outdoor play space at their disposal – and they
have the freedom to use it as they choose: play, sleep, bark,
explore, slobber, dig, fetch...
Dogs are matched by size, activity level and disposition
and a loving human is always on hand to provide care,
supervision – and a lap to sit on! Safe dog toys, agility
equipment, healthy treats and nap time round out the day play
After a full day of playing, dogs staying overnight
retire to spacious, individual pens where they enjoy all
the comforts of home: a warm bed, plenty of fresh food and
water, soft music and turndown treats. We can feed your dog
your food or ours and we dispense medications at no extra charge.
We can accommodate only 45 overnight guests at
a time. This means that your dog will be in good company, but
will never be overwhelmed! By limiting the number of dogs we
keep, we are able to give each dog more room to stretch out
and relax. We are not in the business of warehousing dogs;
instead, we have created an atmosphere that is comfy, cozy and
funnybones maintains a clean, safe environment
and a Vet is available 24 hours. All dogs must be current on
their vaccinations (Rabies, DHLPP and Bordetella) and should
be in good overall health. Dogs eight months and older must
be spayed/neutered to participate in group play.
Exercise and socialization lead to happier,
healthier dogs. Time spent at funnybones can help eliminate
boredom behavior like barking and chewing and is a great solution
for dogs with separation anxiety, young pups with lots of energy
and older dogs that need to go out more often.
funnybones is also known for its spectacular
social events – from the annual Spring Treat
Hunt and summer Poo-au (a luau for dogs, of course!) to Bandana
Day and the ever-popular Howl-o-ween extravaganza. It’s
true, funnybones dogs have busier social calendars than their
Dad, Daughter – and Dogs
funnybones was established in 2004 when Kenya Newman decided
to leave her career in marketing and live her dream of caring
for dogs and supporting animal causes. In 2006 Kenya successfully
lured her father away from his job in telecommunications (It
didn’t take much convincing!) and ever since, this father-daughter
team has been joyfully devoted to serving their canine clientele
– rain or shine, 365 days a year!
Kenya earned her Pet Care Technician Certification
from The Pet Care Services Association and is Pet CPR Certified.
Nevertheless, her real training comes from sharing her life
with five dogs: three Weimaraners, a Weimaraner Mix and an Australian
Terrier – an amusing pack of dogs that has thoroughly
prepared her for the challenges of running a dog daycare.
The funnybones Family
Kenya and Kenney would be sorely outnumbered if it weren’t
for the help of their amazing staff. Everyone at funnybones
is a Pack Leader dedicated to the care of the dogs. With numerous
responsibilities – ranging from sweeping and mopping to
butt scratching, belly rubbing and, of course, poop scooping
– everyone on staff agrees that doggie kisses are the
