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

Jill is a true pet lover. She took care of my shy/insecure dog without hesitation and although my pup was a bit wary in the beginning of the day (it was his very first day with a dog sitter) at the end of the day when I pick him up, he was a very happy and relaxed pup. Jill kept sending me updates through out the day. I was very happy that my dog was in good hands. I definitely recommend Jill as a trusted and loving dog sitter.

Our (very active!) Jack Russel terrier, Willem, needed a place to stay for a day and at short notice Cristina and her family was available to take care of him. We had a meet and greet at her home, which is super cosy with a nice backyard next to the water. Willem was intrigued by the ducks! Cristina and her family is very friendly, open and welcoming and put my mind at ease about some attention points for the stay. On the doggy day care day Willem went with the family to sport activities, got pampered by the kids and had such a great time playing with their own dog as well as the kids. Willem was proper tired (but happy) when we went to pick him up, but a tired dog is a good dog I always say. 😊 Communication was great and we received frequent updates, photos and videos. Cristina is also very flexible with drop off and pick up times. Overall a great experience and I would recommend Cristina and her family any time!

What is doggy daycare?

Doggy daycare is day time care for your dog in the sitter’s home. Depending on the sitter you choose, you can also opt for specialised puppy daycare instead.

Is doggy daycare good for my dog?
