Doggy Day Care

Doggy Day Care has been designed as a safe place for your dog to socialise, to learn to play politely, make friends and learn basic manners such as recall, sit and name recognition.

Your dog will be fully supervised with at least one carer in each area with them at all times.

Our carers will supervise and reward appropriate play, behaviours and manners. We have play equipment, toys and desensitisation sessions that will help your dogs to explore, learn and gain confidence, as well as life skills that will help them outside in the their every day lives.
