About us

Welcome to Downtown Doggy Daycare where we pamper and play with your doggy all day!  Our mission at Downtown Doggy Daycare is to offer a safe, clean environment for dogs to socialize and exercise while providing dog owners' peace of mind that their dog is receiving the personal attention they deserve.

Our facility has a large 3,000 square foot indoor play area divided into rooms for different sizes and personalities. We have a variety of toys, obstacles and games to keep your best friend busy during playtime. We also have a 14,000 square foot fenced outdoor play area where they can get daily fresh air and exercise.

 

Downtown Doggy Daycare provides the following features:

  • Average staff to dog ratio is 1 person per 15 dogs.

  • Automatic filtered watering system providing the pups fresh water all the time while indoors and outdoors.  

  • We believe in giving your dogs only the best healthy choices! We provide all-natural wheat, soy, grain and corn free treats and food. We use Sojos® treats and Taste of the Wild® food.

  • Spacious suite options to keep our boarding dogs cozy and comfortable when they stay for a sleepover.

  • Each playroom and yard has a web cam so parents can watch their pooch play during their visit.

  •  Daycare visitors receive a written paw-gress report to keep Mom and Dad updated on their play date. Parents of boarding clients receive email reports during their stay.

  • Optional services to spoil your pup during their visit such as nap time treats, tuck-in services and grooming services.

 

 

"I highly recommend Downtown Doggie Daycare! Carrie, William, and that staff are wonderful! My dog Murphy can't wait to go to daycare...he gets excited when we turn down Scott Ave! Downtown Doggie Daycare is the BEST!"

-Caitlin Reiks

 

I love bringing Buckley to Downtown Doggy Daycare. I know that people are engaging the dogs, not just watching the dogs. He has lost weight and become better behaved. Turns out you can teach an old dog new tricks! And I feel better knowing he isn't cooped up in the house all day. I recommend it to every dog owner that I know!
