The Benefits of Doggy Daycare

Dog daycare has become increasingly popular among pet owners in recent years and for good reason. It provides owners with peace of mind knowing their furry friend is being cared for while they are away, but it can also have numerous benefits for a dog’s mental health, particularly if they start early as a puppy.


When a puppy is left alone for long periods, it can become anxious and even depressed. They crave Socialization. and interaction with other dogs and humans, and without them, they can exhibit destructive behavior's such as chewing, barking excessively, and even aggression. Dog daycare allows puppies to play and socialise with other dogs, which can improve their overall mood and well-being.


Puppies who attend dog daycare will also have the chance to learn valuable socialisation skills that will carry over into their adult years. They will learn to play and interact appropriately with other dogs and humans. Additionally, they will be introduced to various situations, sounds, and people, which will help them develop into well-adjusted and adaptable adult dogs.


It is recommended that puppies attend daycare at least twice a week, but ideally, they should go every day during their early development stages. This ensures they receive consistent socialization and stimulation, which is critical for their mental and physical development.


Owners should also make sure to choose a reputable dog daycare that has trained staff and proper facilities. It is essential to research and ask for recommendations before choosing a daycare for your furry friend.


In conclusion, dog daycare can be incredibly beneficial for a puppy’s mental health. It provides them with socialization, stimulation, and the opportunity to learn valuable skills that will carry over into adulthood.


Consistency is vital, so it is recommended that puppies attend daycare regularly, ideally every day during their early developmental stages. With the right choice in daycare and consistent attendance, a puppy can develop into a happy and healthy adult dog.

Not to mention that your dog will become familiar with our staff and other dogs in the group, especially if they attend on the same days each week. They will always feel like they are having a party at home.


How our doggy daycare works:



We take pride in the well-being of our dogs, so we are highly selective in choosing who attends. Therefore, we conduct a pre-screening process considering the animal's breed, size, temperament, and age. Some breeds, like English bulldogs, French bulldogs, Staffies, or mixes of these breeds, are not accepted due to their history and physical strength, even if they are small.

Our daycare team has full autonomy to decide whether to accept a dog after the trial process.

Please fill out the pre-enrolment form, and we will contact you for more details about your dog for full approval and bookings.

PLEASE NOTE: Only small breeds and fully vaccinated dogs will be accepted. A trial is compulsory ($40 fee), and it's available ONLY Mondays or Fridays with a booking request.

If your dog is accepted following the initial trial day but is absent for a period of more than 12 weeks, they will be required to undergo another trial session. This is an essential safety measure for the other dogs within the group.


Once your dog is approved, the daily fee will be $30 for a full day or $22.50 for a half day (up to 5 hours). 

Thursdays and Wednesdays are fully booked already, please try to book in advance any other week day if you are a new customer.

Please, fill in with your details below, and we will get in touch with you by phone as soon as possible to organize a trial day.
