Doggie Daycare

Here at K9 to 5 we are as passionate about dogs as you!  We provide fun, cage-free day care and grooming for your pooch.  Our professional daycare attendants & groomers here at K9 to 5 are dedicated to providing your pooch with the greatest care and attention. Our attitude is very simple; when you leave a dog with us you are leaving a cherished member of your family, and that is a responsibility that we take very seriously.

So why doggie daycare?

It is important for your dog’s well-being and development to have access to daily exercise and interaction with people and other dogs.

Due to work demands and busy lifestyles, we find ourselves with less time to dedicate to our furry friend, sometimes leaving them home alone for hours on end.  Separation anxiety, stress and destructive behaviour, including excessive barking can be all forms of a dog left home alone and BORED!

At K9 to 5 Doggie Daycare your dog receives ongoing interaction with attendants and dogs throughout the day. They are never left unsupervised and will be returned to you a much happier and tired pooch.
