Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I send my dog to doggie daycare?

  • Whether your dog is a little lonely or bored, or simply enjoys the company of other people and pets, we‘re here to provide them with an enriched learning experience through socialisation and educational games. Playing with other dogs is a great way for them to reduce boredom and anxiety, increase their physical activity whilst building behavioural and socialisation skills.

How will I know if my dog will enjoy it?

  • At Dogtopia Retreat, it’s our priority to ensure that your pet is safe, comfortable and happy at all times. Our team are trained and experienced to ensure that all dogs have a suitable temperament around other people and pooches. During your initial visit, we will complete a checklist to ensure they are suitable and answer any of your questions. We understand that daycare can sometimes be overwhelming for some pooches, however our staff pride themselves on always being completely honest and open with their parent about their dogs behaviours and levels of enjoyment whilst being in our care.

What happens if my pet disagrees with another dog?

There may be certain times when other dogs play a little too rough, but rest assured that they are under constant supervision. Our experienced and dedicated team are trained to identify early warning signs of aggression or stress. Our team is also trained in canine first aid and capable of attending to any potential medical problems for your peace of mind.
