Dog Daycare

At Positive Dog Training we aim to give your dog the best day possible. We make sure that each and every one of the dogs we care for is content and happy to spend the day with us. Our aim is to have your dog come running in the door to visit us in the morning and be tired and relaxed on their way home with you.

If you would like your dog to join our daycare group please fill our form HERE 

Dog Daycare can help you meet your dog's needs for attention, activity and companionship. 

*So how does daycare work?* Daycare for dogs is very similar to daycare for children, you drop your dog off in the morning where they will get to play, learn, interact, socialise, make friends and nap while you are at work.

*Is your dog suitable for daycare?* Good candidates for daycare are healthy, neutered and sociable dogs who love company and like to keep busy. At Positive Dog Training dogs are welcome at all ages, puppies under 6 months of age require no prior assessment. All dogs over the age of 6 months of age must have an assessment to determine their suitability for daycare. A temperament assessment is €40 and is carried out over 2-3 hours. 

*Why choose Positive Dog Training for daycare?* At Positive Dog Training we want your dogs visit to be like a home from home, that is why we are completely cage free, this means during no time of the day will your dog be kennelled. Your dogs happiness is our priority, we let our dog visitors make the decision to join us, we never force a dog to do anything that they do not want to do.

 *Can your dog get injured while playing?* Dogs unfortunately can get nicks and scratches no matter how gentle they play. We do our best to ensure this doesn't happen however it is a possibility that minor cuts and scrapes appear on your dog. We do ask that you ensure your dogs nails are trimmed appropriately if they are to attend daycare as this is the cause of most daycare scrapes. 

 *What if your dog gets sick while at Daycare?* If we feel that your dog needs veterinary attention we will inform you immediately. We are obsessive about keeping Positive Dog Training clean and safe for your dog we use only the best cleaning products including regular Airborne disinfectants. We also keep a watch to sure that all dogs are up to date with their vaccines including kennel cough and are healthy on arrival to the centre. If you are worried about kennel cough and your dog please contact us on 01 9013018 or go to www.kennelcoughhelp.com. At Positive Dog Training we are very proud of our love of animals and we would never put an animal at risk in our care.

How much does Daycare cost?* Daycare is *€27.00 per day* for a single dog and €22.50 per day for each additional dogs who are living together in the same house. This cost includes a 23% VAT charge and covers you for daycare from 7.30am to 6.30pm.
