 Home alone?

                     We can help!

We've designed our doggy daycare specifically for the needs of small dogs , with toys, activities ,cuddles,  comfy couches, walks and most of all the company of other little dogs their own size.

The Little Dog Lounge is managed and supervised by Sue (head groomer at DogMad Groomers)who, with an extensive boarding kennels background has a wealth of knowledge and understanding when it comes to caring for dogs in a group situation.

Jane , a member of our groom team,  has an extensive history in clinical vet nursing, with a particular interest in the health, comfort and safety of our little guests.

Shirley , our Daycare Manager is the primary daycare caregiver , managing play, games and fun walks and of course, cuddles.

The Little Dog Lounge is a welcoming indoor environment, comfortable in all weather .As part of daycare our littlies are taken out and about for walks during the day in our local park and surrounding area (on lead for safety).

We have a limit of 8-10 guests per day, ensuring each little dog has a special day, with the right amount of companionship, activity ,walks and rest times. Our doggy daycare is open to most small breed dogs (up to 10kg), with our aim being to provide a safe, happy and fun day for  your little friend.
