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
Sukie, 13-10-2023
Vivienne is the best dog sitter I've ever had. Throughout the entire stay, she regularly sent me updates, allowing me to feel connected and at ease. She put all her attention on Mumu and ensured Mumu had an amazing time with her. She took him on walks when Mumu got to enjoy the sunshine and beautiful views. Mumu likes her so much that he doesn't even want to say goodbye. I'll definitely choose her for future dog-sitting needs and highly recommend her to anyone who wants a fantastic dog sitter.

We recently had our boy Theo stay with Lauren. it was a first time for us to leave him with a day carer, usually he boards in kennels. The last trip we did he didn't do well in overnight kennels as we had lost our other dog whom he used to buddy with, and he became anxious, So this was his first trip with us. We had some tourist sites that didn't allow dogs, so daycare was the option for us for this trip. We were extremely happy with the care that was taken with our boy, how attentive Lauren was with Theo and how wonderfully welcoming her 2 dogs were to Theo. The yard is large and secure, Theo was also able to be inside as he's use to. We had updates and any correspondence was replied to promptly, along with pics of Theo. We highly recommend Lauren as a carer and next time we're in Canberra will definitely have our boy stay for day care as well as perhaps overnight if our plans call for it. Thanks again Lauren!
