Dog day care near you

As many of us are heading back into the office, we are having to reorganise our lives and that of our dogs. They too have gotten used to you being around pretty much all the time, so it is extra hard to leave them during the day.

What about dog day care services?

You may be considering using a dog day care service to help you look after your dog during the working day. But how to find the perfect doggy day care? And is that the best solution for you and your paw-some friend?

We have tried to give you an overview of dog day care options and alternative options so you can get peace of mind when leaving your pup for the day.

Dog day care options

There's a whole list of dog day care centres out there, but things to look out for are:

  • cost: typically the price you'll pay will be around between £20 and £40 a day
  • dog day care licence
  • how pick up and drop off works (and whether that works for you and your furry friend)
  • whether there's the option for off-lead walking for your dog
  • your dog's temperament: some dogs get very overstimulated at day care
  • your dog's love or fear for other dogs. If you're dog has any type of fear around other dogs, day care may not be the best option

Alternatives to dog day care

If you're not too sure about sending your doggy to day care, then perhaps we could help? BorrowMyDoggy connects dog owners with dog lovers who cannot have a dog of their own. They are often people who don't have enough time to take on the responsibility full time. Or they may simply not have enough space to accommodate a pet in their home.

BorrowMyDoggy as day care

BorrowMyDoggy allows for you to discover dog lovers in your neighbourhood. You can then choose to get in touch and meet up. If the meet-up is a success and your dog loves the borrower as much as the borrower loves your dog, you could agree on times when they could look after your dog. It may start out with a play date in the park, an afternoon snoozing on their couch or a long walk in the country side!
