A Five-Star Experience for Every Pet Resort Guest
Greenlin knows what it takes to get good marks from every guest that comes through our doors. We start with comfortable, squeaky-clean facilities and then add a high level of attentiveness from our extensively trained staff.
Boarding your animal means placing a lot of trust in someone else to care for your beloved family pet, and that’s why we promise to earn your trust with daily wellness checks and care customized to your pet’s unique routine.
Pets who come to Greenlin can expect the following high-quality amenities:
- Spacious accommodations — Every pet receives their own special multicompartment condo, with plenty of space to lie down and stretch and a separate eating and drinking station.
- Bedding changed daily — Just like your favorite five-star hotel, Greenlin pet resorts provides freshly laundered bedding for every dog guest each day.
- Filtered water and meals on their schedule — Feeding time is a highlight of most pets’ day, so we ensure to get it right with meals delivered on their preferred schedule. We encourage our guests to bring the food they’re used to at home, but a premium in-house option is available at a small daily charge. Plus, filtered water is refreshed multiple times daily!
- Sanitized facilities — Greenlin pet resort and daycare guests can enjoy exceptionally clean facilities. We train staff on up-to-date sanitization protocols set by pet care experts and the CDC, and we only use pet-safe products in our facilities.
- Small staff-to-guest ratio — We employ a large team of pet care professionals, each of which has been highly trained in monitoring animal wellness and seeking to meet the needs of our guests. Day camp enrollment is set by the number of available staff, allowing us to keep dogs in smaller groups attended by multiple “camp counselors” trained in safe play practices.
- Every staff member trained in Pet CPR and First-Aid — In the rare event that a medical emergency arises, every Greenlin staff member has been trained in animal First-Aid and CPR to give life-saving care until the animal can be brought to emergency medical care.
- Optional play and training packages — Kitty guests can enjoy private playtime in our special cat lounge, which is filled with toys, furniture to climb, and nooks to explore. Boarding dogs can enjoy day camp play sessions, training, one-on-one playtime, and nightly tuck-ins where we’ll even read them a bedtime story before they drift off to la-la land.
Dog Day Camp in Harrisburg
Our Harrisburg doggie daycare is a paw-some experience — no bones about it! We have outdoor play areas featuring both natural grass and artificial turf. There’s also an indoor play gym with toys and doggo-approved equipment designed to maximize their enjoyment while keeping them safe.
All dog daycare sessions have play groups separated by size, temperament, and social tendencies, so there’s a clique for each dog to ease into and share their favorite activities with!
Pet daycare guests can even enjoy a party every so often, as there’s always a birthday to celebrate or a special occasion to mark.
Daycare sessions can be added as an option for all dog boarding guests, and it can also be combined with training for a day packed with exercise, engagement, and rewarding activities.
Special Programs and Accommodations for Puppies
Greenlin will happily take in puppies, so give us what you got! We provide specialized boarding packages with extra attention, activities, and bathroom breaks for our youngest guests. They can also enjoy healthy socialization at our puppy daycare program. Animal behavior research shows that puppy socialization reduces fearfulness and improves command recall throughout the life of the animal, so introducing your puppy to neighborhood friends can be a rewarding experience for the whole family.
Puppy boarding can be combined with our puppy obedience training courses in our accelerated Puppy Academy program. They’ll benefit from the highly structured environment and a routine that reinforces learning through clear boundaries and invigorating rewards.
There’s also the option to combine training with puppy daycare or boarding with a puppy play session. Your puppy will never want for fun and attention when they come to Greenlin!
Dog Obedience Training in Harrisburg
Dog obedience training helps improve the relationship between canine and owner. By giving dogs tools to navigate different social situations while respecting boundaries, there is less stress for everyone and a more rewarding experience for the dog.
Greenlin’s tailored approach throws out one-size-fits-all solutions in favor of a personalized training package for each pup. You’ll start off with a FREE evaluation session where you discuss your goals and learn about the possible interests and motivators that drive your dog’s unique personality. We then provide training using the best-fit methods, with an emphasis on positive reinforcement.
By seeking to understand your dog’s behaviors, you can make use of their internal motivators to encourage positive behaviors, communicate with one another more effectively, and meet all of your dog’s needs in a healthy way while still establishing clear boundaries. Your last session is an opportunity to get the whole family involved, too, as you’ll receive a demonstration and information to help you continue the training at home.
We Proudly Provide AKC Canine Good Citizen Testing and Training

Greenlin not only conducts AKC CDC tests on a regular basis, but we also offer training to help your little learner ace their exam! CGC testing standards make for an excellent curriculum guideline, and they enable owners to participate in the growth and learning that is so important to the well-being of their pet.
Dog Bathing in Harrisburg
What’s better than picking up a well-exercised pup from Greenlin’s Harrisburg dog daycare? Why, it’s picking up a dog that also looks and smells great!
Dogs enjoy the complete spa treatment at our professional bathing stations. We’ll tend to their coat, too, with optional brush-outs and de-shedding treatments. Nail trimmings are available, as well.
Dog bathing staff have been trained to not only get your animal clean as a whistle, but they are also on the lookout for skin, coat, nail, and paw issues that you may wish to investigate further with your vet. Regular bathing prevents matting and can help owners spot issues like hot spots and infected paw pads more readily.
Whether dropping them off for daycare, training, or lodging, dog bathing at Greenlin’s Harrisburg location is the perfect way to cap off their visit with personalized pampering.
