DOGGY DAY CARE In Wollongong CBD

Leave your dog in our loving dog daycare centre while you’re  working long hours or out-and-about

LOOKING FOR A DOGGY DAYCARE for your furbaby?

Imagine a place like this, perfectly designed for you and your furbaby:

  • A spacious, comfortable and friendly space
  • Busy days full of play and positive interactions
  • Your doggy is active, happy and out of mischief
  • He or she no longer chews things up at home
  • There's no worrying about separation anxiety
  • There's someone who loves, plays and cares for your dog as much as you do
  • Your dog receives daily training from a qualified force free trainer, focusing on calming behaviour, polite play and recall

Just like childcare, our doggy daycare centre in Wollongong provides games, safe socialisation, education and exercise. Helping to enrich your dog’s life and improve the bond you share.

A day at dog day care can help with problems caused by boredom and inactivity such as barking, chewing and destructive digging.

Benefits of doggy day care

  • Relieves Boredom and undesired behaviours

    When your furbub is left alone all day they can become bored and even anxious, this can lead to unwanted behaviours such as digging, barking and chewing. Doggy Day Care offers a stimulating environment to help pet owners to prevent these behaviours. It also gives you peace of mind to know that your furbub is enjoying a day of activities and fun.

  • Exercise

    Your dog will get to run and play, getting a day full of exercise. Just like us, exercise is important for your furbub's overall health and wellbeing. Our space is large enough to fit 30 large dogs and 60 small, but we cap it at half that because to us your dog is more than just a number. We understand that they need room to move and play (plus, less dogs equals more cuddles).

  • Socialisation

    Interacting with a wide variety of dogs and humans allows your furbub to make positive associations when meeting new people and dogs. This can help for when you take your furbub out and about with you on weekends.

  • Peace of mind

    Paw-rents will enjoy peace of mind knowing your furbub is being well-cared for while you are at work or just out and about. Feel guilt-free when you return home, especially on those days when you are too tired or it’s too cold or dark to go for a walk.

  • Safety

    Know that your dog is being cared for in a loving and safe environment, especially if you have a Houdini (escape artist). 

  • Enrichment

    Not only will your dog be physically exercised, they'll receive mental stimulation through games, training and toys. Making your furbub use their brain is a great way to ensure they’ll sleep through the night.

  • Community

    We want to create a community of like-minded people. Feel free to ask any questions, find new playdates or walking buddies in the Wollongong area. Know that you are not alone and we are all here for you!

  • Small Dog Day

    Mondays and Thursdays are "Little Dog Days" - small dogs allowed only! This gives our smaller furbubs a chance to run and play without the fear of being intimidated by our larger doggys. We also have the ability to section off an area for small dogs on all-size days, so our little dogs can always feel safe and secure.
