Doggie Daycare

Socialise. Learn. Cuddles.....and of course being kept out of mischief! A bored dog alone at home is, well... a gnawed table leg or half a thong with the bits strewn across your bed! 

It is also incredibly important for puppies to socialise as young as possible. Puppies have a critical learning window of time being approximately between 3 to 17 weeks of age. Your puppy's experiences during this important period of learning and development can influence and shape their behaviour into adulthood.

Socialising your pup must be done in a safe, social and positive environment. Doing this can be difficult though unless you have friends with dogs that are up to date with their vaccinations. At Darlo Dogs we love puppies! We welcome small dog puppies from when they are sufficiently vaccinated to being exposed to other vaccinated dogs. 

Its never too early to begin getting them used to grooming either. Baby puppies up to 20 weeks (5 months) can book a tidy and a trial.  Wash, dry, nails, hygiene and fringe. We give them time to settle in before introducing their groom. Leaving them to play before they're pick up always makes for a great positive experience!


How dog daycare works

Complete your online profile for us to learn more about your dog and so we have your dog's medical details on file.  Our online booking system gives you complete control on buying credits and securing your place.  We have a cap on numbers to ensure complete safety for all.

A temperament trial is important to establish if your dog enjoys and is suitable for our daycare experience.  It allows puppies enough time to settle in before being picked up without becoming overwhelmed and over tired.  The well-being of our dogs is most important and we want every visit to be a positive one.  We will update you during their trial and discuss next steps.  We may suggest a further few short stays then some half days before jumping right into full days.

Each day we provide your dog with:

* Mental enrichment in the form of building on their training, playing and some agility games.

* Desirable socialisation - we don't force your dog to interact with us or other dogs.  We want them to be relaxed so if they're an older dog not loving the high energy puppies they will have respite away from them. Cuddles are paramount!

* Walks outside to one of our nearby parks or a variety of great smelling trees to leave pee-mails (couple of walks a day)

* An opportunity for them to have quiet time in a safe space
