Many dogs lack stimulation, sufficient outlets for their energy build-up and opportunities to socialise with other dogs. These deficiencies can be directly apportioned to higher levels of anxiety and other associated ‘destructive’ behaviour often inherent in dogs left by themselves for excessive periods of time. Double Doodles Day Care is free from restrictive pens and cages, instead opting to initiate free-running and supervised play activities. Promoting stimulation, improved fitness levels and general wellbeing, resulting in calmer more relaxed companion at the end of your working day.

Wherever possible, we create appropriate playgroups that provide ‘like-sized’ dogs all-day access to organised, fully equipped, rest and play sessions. Here’s how you and your dog stand to benefit from doggie day care:
Socialisation with other dogs
As you’ll find lots of other dogs at day care - all different breeds, ages and sizes – yours will quickly learn to socialise and mix in this environment. Day care helps dogs to build confidence and become more comfortable around their canine companions. It’s important to socialise your dog from a young age and day care is an excellent way of doing this in a controlled, fun environment.
Exercise and well-being
There’s always plenty going on at Double Doodles. We have acres of customised play areas for dogs to engage or simply chill out. Rotating the packs around the activity areas, runs and relaxation zones promotes the burn-off of excess energy. Regular Day care attendance will help to keep your dog generally fit and healthier.
All dogs need mental stimulation to help to keep brains active and minimise boredom. Ongoing interaction with other dogs and day care staff ensure your dog is constantly engaged both physically and mentally. Day care is an excellent way of relieving boredom and eliminating other associated destructive behaviour, we always ensure your dog has plenty of things to do.
Always in good company
Dogs that are left alone all day can get very lonely. Luckily your dog will never be on their own while at day care. They will always have the company of lots of friendly dogs as well as members of staff to have fun with.
Less owner dependency
Being part of a newly formed social pack, your dog won’t always be the centre of attention as might be the case at home – trust us, this is a good thing – dogs excessively reliant on their owner often develop separation anxiety issues, not good for you or your pet. By exposure to different places and situations, day care should improve your dog’s independence and reduce associated anxiety.
Your dog comes home fulfilled
You will be surprised at just how tired your dog is when they come home from day care. Just one day playing with other dogs and keeping active will help them to burn a lot of energy, ensuring your dog – and as a direct result, you – should be much calmer and relaxed when they get home after a long day at ‘work’.
7:30am - 6pm Monday - Friday.
Double Doodles Dog Care provides a secure, fit-for-purpose fun environment for dogs to play, rest and engage with other friendly dogs. As such we evaluate every new dog that comes to us to assess its current level of social development.
We will not accept dogs that are aggressive, anti-social, or show signs that they might pose risk of injury to themselves, other dogs or staff within the facility.
A typical evaluation would include an interview with the owner (and dog present), we would then carry out a series of controlled exercises - conducted by trained staff – to determine your dog’s suitability.
Temperament evaluations are arranged by prior appointment only.
UNFORTUNATELY, WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY MALES OVER 9 MONTHS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN CASTRATED.
PLEASE NOTE IT IS THE OWNERS RESPONSIBILITY TO NOTIFY US OF ALL ASPECTS OF YOUR DOGS BEHAVIOUR. FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL DOGS IN OUR CARE WE CAN NOT ACCEPT DOGS WITH ANY ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR ISSUES.
