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
Michelle, 26-08-2021
I've been on the market for a daycare that has a similar outlook on dog discipline as me for a long time and I finally found it. Many places claim that they can handle all kinds of dogs, yet the bulk of their staff are part-timers who love dogs, but have weak forms of correcting dog manners and/or give the dogs too much leeway. Ruby was open to taking on my large-sized energetic dog and attempt different handling techniques with me when my dog was over-stimulated. She proposed a date on which she was hosting other high-energy social pups, and my dog ended up having a very fun play day. Ruby texted regular video updates (there's always music playing in the background), and at the end of the day, my dog was completely well-exercised and exhausted. Her profile is accurate in that her place is basic and not luxurious, but the dog play area is large enough, well-shaded, and she has large fans to keep the place ventilated and cool. She also enforces breaks if she notices the dog is heated/exhausted by leashing or isolating them - this tells me that she is keeping a watchful eye on the dogs for red flags. I feel confident about going back to her again when I want my dog to have a social day. Thank you, Ruby!

Debbie&Victor is perfect! 100% commitment and attention to our 4month puppy (who requires alot of attention and energy): > They gave our puppy two walks even though it was a only a day sitting. > made sure he ate well and gave him apples from their kitchen to feed him. > their frequent updates of my pup are so adorable because they describe my puppy behaviour so detailedly and with cute pics! (They are superb photographers) > trained pawrents. Debbie&victor have experience in handling dogs and I could tell how well in control they were of my puppy through their updates Their place is also big and have a nice open balcony for my puppy to roam and enjoy. Wholly trust them, and will definitely re-engage them for our next pet sitting.
