day care

At Good Dog Training Day Care we want every dog that attends to enjoy a fun, action packed, enjoyable day. We want the dogs to learn socialising skills and to make friends with the other attendees. Day Care can go a long way to meet your dog’s need for companionship and attention. It is unlikely that there is any dog suffering from boredom in day care.

We cater for all types of dogs, subject to terms and conditions, big and small, young and old. Our Daycare hours are 7.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday. Saturday is for training and puppy socials.

Please note that we will be introducing a booking system shortly that will require all dogs wishing to attend Daycare to be pre-booked for that day. We will re-register all dogs again and this will allow the system run smoothly and hopefully be of little interuption to our day to daay operation. Dogs not part of the Good Dog Family will be required to speak with us by calling 0894049322.

This is not coming in with a bang in that we will allow a month to get ourselves and you our wonderful dog owners a chance to get used to the change. A supporting information flyer will be available to assist.

Puppies under 6 months old are welcome provided they are fully vaccinated. They will be mixed intermittently with the older and bigger dogs to build essential socialisation skills and will be carefully monitored over this time. It is unlikely these sessions would last longer that 30 minutes, when they will be returned together to their designated area. After a while they will be reintroduced again, and so on during the day.

As your dog will receive treats during the day as reward for good behaviour, please notify us of any allergies your dog may have.

All dogs over 6 months old must go through a suitability assessment before being admitted to day care. These once off assessments are held by appointment and last between 2 to 3 hours.

The cost is €20 per assessment.

The assessment is not a judgement of your dog. Not all dogs are suitable for day care and some can find it overwhelming and frightening. We love to accept dogs, but it would be irresponsible to allow a dog attend that shows an inability to cope. In the event of your dog being found to be unsuitable for day care, we will discuss this with you and try to find a solution for both of your needs. It is the policy of Good Dog Training that all dogs over ten months should be neutered. In certain circumstances we will make an exception to this rule.
