    Dogtopia of Ahwatukee

    We believe that every dog deserves regular daycare. Our mission is to enrich your dog’s life by providing a safe, stimulating, and supervised environment for them to learn, exercise, socialize, and have fun!

    At Dogtopia of Ahwatukee, we understand the value that daycare brings to our furry friends’ lives. We send our children to school to learn, make friends, and have fun.

    Dog of the Week

    For the week of 07-15-2024

    Name: Winston
    Age: 1 Years
    Breed: Chihuahua
    Favorite Activities: Winston is a very playful boy who loves to run around the City playroom and wrestle with his best friends. He's a master at Tic Tac Dog and enjoys rolling around in the chalk, turning into a colorful rainbow.
    Friends: Oreo, Bessie, Marla, & Piper
    Most Lovable Qualities: Winston has come out of his shell so much since the first day we met him. He has become confident and playful, and he is truly a sweet boy who loves affection. His favorite thing is to be snuggled.


    We provide the highest quality open-play dog daycare in Ahwatukee. Dogs thrive in an environment that promotes socialization, learning, exercise, and fun. That’s why Dogtopia of Ahwatukee plans to offer so much more than just a place to leave your dog during the day. We live to enrich your dog’s life with our supervised open-play doggie daycare.

    At Dogtopia, your pup will have total freedom to play and make friends in our safe, supervised, off-leash playrooms. We have designed every aspect of our spacious playrooms—from the rubberized floors to the advanced UV air filtration systems—with the goal of creating the safest, cleanest, most fun environment for your dog. Our unique training program ensures our certified Canine Coaches are skilled in maintaining safe play and rewarding good-dog behaviors, while gently discouraging the… not-so-good-dog ones.


    Dogtopia of Ahwatukee is a brand new facility that has been meticulously designed and utilizes time-tested operating practices using scientific research and the best available technology, including:

    • A unique enrollment model: Dogs enrolled in daycare enjoy access to boarding. This builds the tight-knit pack needed for a safe and educational open-play environment.
    • Live webcam access so you never feel separated from your pup.
    • Rubberized playroom floors to aid long-term joint and paw health.
    • A thorough Meet & Greet process: We ensure all new dogs are well suited to open play.
    • Advanced HVAC systems to keep the playrooms sanitized, cool, fresh, and clean.
    • Rigorous cleaning regimes to sanitize our playrooms using safe, pet-friendly cleaning products.
    • Canine Coaches who are certified in dog behavior so they know good play which creates a safe playroom environment.
    • Four large playrooms separated by size and play style so your dog can play with like-minded pups.
    • Custom-built software to track nutrition, medication, and other specific needs for every dog in our care.

    Dogtopia of Ahwatukee has earned certification status as a Heroes for Healthy PetsTM facility. The Heroes for Healthy Pets Certification Program in Infectious Disease Management provides training for preventative care, including strategic vaccination, as well as cleaning and disinfection protocols to help maintain disease-free facilities and keep pets healthy. The program is co-sponsored by the International Boarding and Pet Services Association, National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America, Pet Sitters International, VETgirl, and Barkleigh Productions.

    Enroll in Doggie daycare and JOIN OUR PACK

    At Dogtopia of Ahwatukee, we are committed to creating the safest, most fun open-play dog daycare possible. We believe that creating a tight-knit pack of consistent playmates is the best way to achieve this, and our enrollment model makes this a reality. Just like with child daycare, a consistent group results in better friendships, safer play, more learning, and a drastically lower chance of getting sick (dogs can catch colds, too!).

    Dogtopia offers overnight boarding to dogs enrolled in daycare, and we encourage regular daycare attendance to ensure that every dog in the playroom is familiar with open play, is able to find their BFFF (Best Furry Friend Forever), and develops a strong relationship with our certified Canine Coaches.
