Doggy Day Care

PLEASE NOTE: We will be closing daycare on 6th December and so are currently not taking any more new clients for daycare. If you have been to us before you are welcome to book in up until 6th December but unfortunately no new dogs will be accepted. 

Do you work long hours, have a busy home schedule or perhaps just want your dog to get a little more out of life – then Paws...4 Playtime are here for you!

With us, your dog can play, exercise, relax and learn all in a safe, low stress and positive environment.Our goal is to keep your pet happy, stress free and entertained during the day so you don’t have to worry about your pup digging up the yard, barking at the neighbours or tearing the washing off the line. 

Our qualified pet care professionals can  look after your dog at our purpose built dog training and daycare grounds. Instead of leaving your dog at home for the day, why not book them in for daycare and let us care for them while they enjoy socialising with other dogs, interactive games, pampering and playtime. 

Our Daycare is currently open three day per week with the view to expand in the future if the service is popular. We are currently open on Wednesday and Thursday from 8 am until 5 pm. Late pick up not pre-organized will attract a late fee of $10 per 15 minute intervals. Bookings are essential and dogs must be fully vaccinated (C5 required including kennel cough vaccination) and sociable with other dogs to attend (Assessments can be arranged by appointment and are a requirement before any new dog is accepted into the daycare group) . Please note: dogs must be desexed and no entire males or females on heat will be accepted into daycare. All dogs MUST be assessed prior to attending daycare for suitability. If I have not met your dog before then a behavioural assessment must be organised before booking in. 

Daily activities

 We structure our day to include play, relaxation and fun learning to maximize your dog’s experience at day-care.  Throughout the day there is always a variety of experiences to challenge your dog’s skills and cater for their varying emotions and energies.   We have a suggested daily routine but most importantly, we listen to your fur-kids and give them the choices to rest when they are tired, learn when they are keen and play when they are ready.
