DOGGY DAY CARE In Wollongong CBD

We specialise in providing enrichment, training and supervised play for your dog in small groups for half days.

Your dog's wellbeing is our top priority.

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
  • Supervised play and positive interactions
  • Your dog receives daily training from a qualified force free trainer, focusing on calming behaviour, polite play and recall
  • 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 doggy is active, happy and out of mischief
  • Recieve personalised training strategies to help your dog thrive in the world

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

We are a boutique dog day care offering half day plays with a maximum of 12 dogs per day.

 

We specialise in offering half day plays as we believe this is the best for your dog's wellbeing. So often dogs are placed in situations and are just expected to cope, we want your dog to THRIVE.

At BEBT we believe that a full day of daycare is too much to handle for most dogs and can cause stress leading to undesirable behaviours and an unhappy dog.

We keep our groups small and always set your dog up for success. Trust us, 4 hours of play will have them sleeping for the rest of the day 🙂

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!

  • Half a day of play keeps the blues away

    At BEBT we believe that a half-day of play is more than enough for your dog. Once we go past this time dogs can become too tired and find it harder to make the right decision. Half days are 4 hours in the morning, with the latest pickup at 1 pm. We offer home deliveries (aka we will drop your dog home so they can nap peacefully at home)

  • 8:00am - 9:00pm: Arrival

    Dogs arrive ready for playtime with their besties of the furry and hooman variety.

  • 9:00am- 1:00pm: Playtime + Enrichment

    Dogs enjoy play time with their friends and staff. They will participate in a range of activities and enrichment including tug, chasing games, ball games and much much more. Treat based training will be used throughout the day to encourage and reward polite play and behaviours.

  • 1:00pm: Home time

    Mums and dads arrive to take their furbubs home.... that is if you can get them to leave. Dogs taking advantage of our home delivery option will be delivered safely to their home.

  • *Home Delivery

    Your dog will be driven home. If you are not home we will leave them safe and sound and send you a pic so you know they have made it home ready to nap.

  • *Beach Adventures

    A dog walker will pick-up your dog and drop them back to your home. A group of up to 4 dogs will head to the beach or park for an hours playtime. We find that this is more than enough time to wear your dog out. (Rainy days we will head to BEBT to play undercover)

LITTLE DOG DAYS Little dogs take over on Tuesdays!

If your little furbub feels more comfortable playing with dogs their own size then Tuesday is the day for them. Little dogs only!!

Your little furbub can run and play with confidence or get cuddles….. like normal 🙂

At BEBT we believe that dogs of all sizes can get along, however we also understand that the world can be a bit scary when you are only 20cm tall. We want to cater to our vertically-challenged furry friends and offer them their very own day.

So come and play on little dog day at BEBT……..

and then nap for the next two days 😆
