Our Doggie Daycare

The DSPCA Doggie Daycare is the perfect place for your dog to hang out and play while you are at work.  


Our purpose-built facility has a large indoor and outdoor space where dogs spend their day socializing, making best friends and getting lots of exercise and enrichment, ensuring you have a happy and content dog at the end of a busy day.


Our Doggie Daycare operates Monday – Friday, 7am – 7pm except for Bank Holidays & Public Holidays.

The Doggie Daycare Daily Routine

Doggie Daycare is an off-lead area, dogs have free run throughout the whole day. They play ball, tug of war, splash in our paddling pools, have fun with our sprinklers, play houses, agility and enrichment toys.

Our staff are trained to encourage appropriate play that builds social skills and good doggie manners, with some fun training done too.

Beds are available at all times for dogs to have a rest if they choose too. On occasion some dogs may need a kennel booked for rest periods where they would alternate between Doggie Daycare and our Dog Hotel, our Kennel Daycare can also be booked if you would like your dog to be fed throughout the day. As daycare is an off-lead area dogs can not be fed meals throughout the day.

How to enroll your dog

Call our reception team on 01-4994790, we will set you up on our system and ask some questions about your dog, you will then be sent two forms to complete before your first assessment day.

The initial assessment:

This is a 5 day initial assessment period when you enroll in daycare where the dogs behaviour is continuously assessed.

Assessments are a requirement for all dogs, regardless of breed, or if they have attended another doggie daycare.

During the assessment your dog attends doggie daycare but has a kennel in the hotel for rest periods if needed.

Not all dogs will be suitable for daycare and we do have a day boarding option for these dogs, please talk to our reception team to find out more.
