Welcome to Pet Dog School Doggy Daycare

Sarah opened Doggy Daycare Wanganui in 2012 at the Pet Dog School. Doggy Daycare accepts dog friendly dogs Monday to Friday from 7:45 to 6:00 and is a fantastic way to allow Sarah and her qualified / experienced staff to entertain lucky dogs in play, while practicing social skills while enjoying a day of fresh air, cuddles and company. Now Wanganui dog owners can go to work without having to feel guilty about saying goodbye or can simply give their pet something different and exciting to look forward to during the week.

Pups can come to daycare from as young as 10 weeks old, as soon as they have their second vaccination jab (including Canine or ‘Kennel Cough’), and have been at their forever home for at least one week; Assigned their own carer for their stay, qualified staff support all their baby attempts at socialising while continuing their toilet training, chew toy habit practice and promote confidence with strangers of all ages. All this confidently without their own humans, so no budding separation anxiety issues, while having a wonderful time learning to be a happy, confident, social dogs.

“At Pet Dog School we pride ourselves on understanding the needs of dogs and the needs of owners to do the very best for them EVEN when they cannot be there to provide it themselves.”

“Pet Dog school daycare for dogs provides stimulation, company, over an acre of inside and outside space to socialise, explore and enjoy the company of caring humans and friendly, fun-loving dogs.”

High energy or low energy – there’s a place for everyone

All energies are welcome for full days of course but here are a few pointers:

  • Quiet and low energy dog? Afternoon sessions for half day bookings are recommended.
  • High energy dog? Half day bookings in mornings only.
  • By the afternoon high energy, full day dogs have started to run out of energy a little!
  • Mondays and Fridays are good days for small or big, quiet dogs as these tend to be the quieter, calmer days.
  • All dogs are monitored constantly throughout their stay so that each one’s personality and needs are catered for.
