Doggy Daystays

Daystays are recommended for all dogs planning to board, most importantly though is bringing puppies in as soon as possible. Puppies can start coming once their first series of vaccinations is complete and they are 6 months old.

Daycare is closed between the 20th December to 10th January Yearly


Socialising your puppy/dog in a kennel or doggy daycare can be a great way to get started.

Human parents often worry about exposing their cute little fuzzy kids to adult dogs too soon. But waiting too long can be a problem, too, if the puppy is going to be part of a household with other dogs.

Some veterinarians will tell owners of young puppies to wait until they’ve had all their vaccines before they meet other dogs. This can take up to four months! Remember, months are years for dogs and you have up to 17 weeks to socialise your puppy. You wouldn’t wait until your kid had all his or her shots to let him play with other toddlers, right?

In order to have a normal, outgoing dog, let him play with the other dogs. Just make sure they have been vaccinated.

If there are other dogs in the household, make sure they are up to date on their vaccinations. This way, they can become safe playmates and guides for the youngster.

If your puppy is an “only dog child,” let him meet other vaccinated dogs who you know get along with other animals. They can meet in your home or the other dog’s home. Be aware that dogs can get territorial and you may need to rescue your little one. Your pup may instinctively roll on his back to let the other dog know he means no disrespect.
