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
Alexis & Stez, 14-01-2023
There’re dog lovers, and, there’s an innate love for dogs. We assume all dog sitters are at least the former. 1st day at Pat’s, Luna made her usual “boss-girl” arrival by being inquisitive (a.k.a intrusively kaypoh, if we were to put it bluntly) and sniffed every corner of Pat’s place, almost marked her tatami, nipped her tatami pillow, all within minutes of being there. Pat’s instinctive reaction shows an innate love for dogs. No hesitation, no “oops” or “uh-oh” and curiously amused (at what Luna was up to). This immediately had us at ease. We trust instinctive responses, it’s speaks volumes. And the one we felt and observed is something we as pawrents always hope for whenever the furkid meets anyone for the first time. It’s something unspoken and magical. The loving engagement and bonding that follow after between Pat & Luna was organic and visibly fulfilling for both. It’s not intentionally effortful, but something you can trust to operate at any care-level the situation requires. While chemistry can be uncontrollably selective. Care and attentiveness from a sitter who has this innate love for dogs will be for all under their care. Any pawrent can absolutely trust their furkid to such a sitter. And Pat is one of those.

Erick took fantastic care of Brownie while we were away for almost two weeks. Besides the daily care for Brownie, he also patiently trained Brownie on potty and trying other healthy snacks (Brownie is picky with food!) We feel so blessed to have Erick looking after Brownie and we know that our doggie is in his good hands. He never fail to send daily videos and photos to us so that we know the activities Brownie has done for the day. We will definitely engage Erick again if we need a doggy day care service
