At AdelaideVet Doggy Daycare, we pride ourselves on providing a compassionate, friendly and safe environment for our doggy patrons. Our caring and highly skilled team are dedicated to ensuring every dog has the best experience and the ultimate in four-legged fun. We aim to be your furry friend's family away from home, ensuring your dog is happy, enriched and relaxed.
Whether you want your fur-baby to have more stimulation in their day, extra attention or you just want them to have fun with friends, our team are here to provide the attention and care you want for your best mate. We’d love to give you a tour of our brand new facilities, we’re pretty proud of them! Give our team a call, fill out an enquiry form or start your dog's enrolment here.
Doggy daycare gives your dog a fun-filled day of play, mental stimulation and energy release. We pair them up with dogs with similar energy levels and desire to play! There's so much opportunity for them to have the best day with their friends. With lots of toys, fun features and friends your dog will certainly get their fill of play and exercise for the day.
Social interaction is a crucial part of your dog’s life. A well-socialised dog is happy to come along to all your favourite places. Our team of dog lovers will make sure positive training and socialisation are used to encourage your furry friend at doggy daycare. Our trainers will keep a close eye on them working with your dog to build stronger happy relationships with other dogs.
We have lots of toys, food puzzles and opportunities for play. Our canine educators are always supervising ensuring dogs are having fun and some of their own space with a treat when possible too.
Preventing Behaviour Problems
Play, exercise and socialisation aim to help your dog relax at home and reduce tendencies for undesirable behaviours such as digging, barking and destruction.
Our friendly staff are skilled and trained in dog behaviour and are highly qualified in making friends with your special furry mate. Our team absolutely love dogs and love what they do, your pooches are our passion!
When dogs come into daycare the first few hours are filled with excitement and energy as your dog meets new and old friends! Some dogs will take time out during the day on their own behalf, using the soft beds provided in all of our playpens. However, a lot of the time the dogs are so excited they just don’t know when to stop! If we allow this behaviour for the entire duration of the dog's stay we tend to see some undesirable behavioural changes, particularly when we see dogs are getting tired and need a break.
During Zen time we dim the lights, turn on some soothing calm meditation music and encourage the dogs to settle where they feel comfortable (usually on a canine educators lap!). We have private Zen Pens if we feel like your dog might need some quiet time on their own. Pens are equipped with soft beds, calming music, water and enrichment toy if needed, of course, always under the watchful eyes of our Canine Educators.
At AdelaideVet our veterinary behavioural team helped us develop a carefully thought out day for our doggy guests. Our qualified vets know this Zen Time to be of great importance, and they know their stuff!
If your dog needs special attention or has any medical requirements, our qualified team can continue medication and care as required.

Our strict vaccination policy
AdelaideVet Doggy Daycare requires all attendees to provide proof of full C5 vaccination before attending daycare. All dogs in our care are up to date with their vaccinations and we have this recorded on all of our guest’s files.
Is there anything I need to do before my dog comes to Doggy Daycare?
Not all dogs are suitable for Doggy Daycare. We will ask you some questions to determine if Doggy Daycare is a good fit for your dog prior to taking a booking.
Dogs over 6 months of age must be desexed. If your dog needs to be desexed please contact us for more information on this procedure.
To ensure the well-being of all dogs, vaccinations must be current. If your dog has not been vaccinated by one of our practices, we must sight proof of vaccination before your dog can visit daycare. As a general rule, dogs should be fully vaccinated at least 10-14 days prior to their visit with us. If your dog needs to be vaccinated we can assist at any of our 4 AdelaideVet Practices across Adelaide.
For the comfort and protection of others, we also request that your dog is up to date with flea and worm prevention.
