    Default Doggy Day Care just opened in Bardon, Brisbane

    Hi,

    Retreat Doggy Day Care has opened in Bardon, Brisbane, alongside Four Paw Dog Groomers. We are looking for dogs to come and join the gang! They must be desexed (if over 6 months) and non aggressive to fit in with all our current doggies. We have a small dog area, which is separate from our larger breeds. Absolutely no cages are used, or on the premises, and all the dogs are supervised all day. With a backyard area to sniff about in, and daily walks, its well worth bringing in your dog for the day. Currently we have dogs coming in that their parents are working full time, some are stay at home Mum's with small children, that don't have the time to excercise their dogs and give them all they need daily, and others are casual that just need help for the day with their pet.

    We help train puppies with basic commands, and have agility equipment for those that are interested in having their dogs learn some tricks!

    As an added bonus, we offer the service of daily emailed pics, so you can see your dog is happy and to brighten your day.

    Contact me to book your dog in, or let me know if you have any queries, happy to chat.

    Hi Retreat DDC

    Do you have a "proof of vaccination / immunity" requirement as well?

    My dog quite likes her cage, I mean crate. It's very handy that she feels that way for the times she has to stay at the vet or boarding kennels or just when I'm away from home and can't leave her tied up anywhere or in the car.

    Yes we do have a proof of vaccination certificate requirement. Its part of the registration form. I view the certificate from the vet, and keep a copy on file.

    I agree, I don't mind crates or crate training at all. I crate trained my own dog when he was a puppy, and I think it is handy for situations that they need to go into cages, or crates throughout their lives. I don't have crates/cages here at the doggy day care however, as its not neccessary for this environment. I spend alot of time with trainers, and various training groups, and they all say for this environment, its not appropriate. My clients want to know their dogs are happy and running about, not caged. Retreat DDC is a small local doggy day care. We can have up to 15 dogs a day, however I don't have that many at this stage, so what I find is the dogs are really happy in the mornings, so play madly for a few hours in the morning, and then sleep for a bit, then later in the afternoon they are back to playing madly again. They have alot of down time, as their isn't alot of dogs here to be over stimulated.
