Doggy day care at the sitter’s home

Day care for while you are away

A doggy day care sitter will provide day time supervision and loving care for your dog in their home.

Daycare is a perfect choice for giving your dog additional enrichment during the day. Our sitters can also offer puppy daycare to give your puppy additional socialisation while they are young.

The personalised experience our sitters provide means that your dog can enjoy their day in a relaxed and safe, home environment. This is a much better alternative to crowded commercial dog daycare centres.

Doggy Day Care
Marjan, 04-06-2024
I recently had the pleasure of entrusting my furry friend to a wonderful dog day care service, and I couldn't be more impressed with the experience. Clovie, the caretaker, provided exceptional care and made both my dog and me feel at ease from the moment we met her. One of the standout features of Clovie’s care is the personalized attention each dog receives. She takes the time to get to know each dog’s personality, preferences, and any special requirements they might have. This individualized care makes a huge difference and ensures that each dog feels comfortable and loved. I was also impressed by the regular updates and photos Clovie sent throughout the day, allowing me to see how much fun my dog was having. It’s clear that she goes above and beyond to create a positive and enriching experience for both dogs and their owners. Overall, I highly recommend Clovie's dog day care to any dog owner looking for a safe, fun, and nurturing environment for their pet

I cannot recommend Katrina highly enough. I have two rescue dogs and they are not easy, one is extremely nervous of everything. At our meet and greet she was super patient and it's obvious she has a lot of experience with dogs, and is an animal person. Her home is beautiful and is well set up for dog sitting. I subsequently took my dogs for day care and Katrina sent me a pic of them settled and happy. When I collected them they were happy and relaxed and it was obvious they had been well taken care of. I will definitely be using Katrina again. Thanks so much for taking such good care of Lewis and Suso. :-)

Frequently asked questions

Your doggy day care questions answered

What is doggy daycare?

Doggy daycare is day time care for your dog in the sitter’s home. Depending on the sitter you choose, you can also opt for specialised puppy daycare instead.
