To be honest, we’re not sure who has a better time here at Playful Pups Doggy Daycare - the dogs or our team!

We are all life-long dog lovers and treat each dog that joins us as if he or she were our own. We want every dog to thrive during their time with us. We go above and beyond to understand each dog’s likes and needs to make sure they always have their very best experience with us.

Our doggy daycare facility is all-weather, undercover, hygienic, safe, functional and City of Kingston Council approved. But most of all, Playful Pups Doggy Daycare is fun for your dog, with toys and separate fenced areas for playing and for relaxing. Your dog will use lots of energy playing with their friends so when you collect your beloved pup at the end of the day, they’re ready to relax with you at home.

The Playful Pups Doggy Daycare team is led by Joe, who’s been an animal lover all his life and the proud owner of several much-loved German Shepherds over 30+ years. 

The team at Playful Pups look forward to meeting you and your fur family soon.

Playful Pups Doggy Daycare is the definition of amazing! I honestly couldn’t wish for better people to take care of my pup. Joe is an absolute pleasure to interact with and his team is friendly, helpful and reassuring! Honestly, I want to send my pup to work and spend my days here myself! If only I could give 10 stars!

Joe and the awesome team at Playful Pups love my fur baby as much as I do. If you are looking for a place that puts your mind at ease that your puppy is being loved and well cared for during their play day, this is it!

M. Bickford-Beers

The staff took the time to really understand my concerns and Molly's needs. They went above and beyond to send me regular videos and updates on her progress and were patient in the way they slowly introduced Molly to the environment. They look after each dog individually depending on their nature. We couldn't recommend Playful Pups highly enough!

The customer service is flawless, from day one I was met with a smiling face and they knew my name instantly. The extra touches of report cards, Christmas gifts and the videos and photos we receive proves how much they love our dogs. Thanks a million!

Joe and the team are amazing with my two dogs and they love going so much. They always sleep really well afterwards! We love that we get a video of their day so we know how they are going. Joe and his team throw a great birthday party too!
