Dogtopia of Homewood
We believe that every dog deserves regular daycare. Our mission is to enrich your dog’s life by providing a safe, supervised, stimulating environment where they can exercise, socialize, learn and have fun!
At Dogtopia of Homewood, we understand the value of daycare in our dogs’ lives. Your dog is a member of the family. We send our children to school to learn, make friends, and have fun. Why should our four-legged family members be any different? Dogs are highly social, active animals who need regular stimulation and socialization to live to their fullest potential.
We are a locally owned and operated business supported by the nation’s fastest-growing dog daycare brand, providing us with access to the highest quality resources, training and support in the industry. Everything at Dogtopia – from the design of our state-of-art-facilities to our uncompromising safety standards to our extensive training and certification of Canine Coaches – is structured to create the safest, cleanest, most fun daycare experience for your furry friend, so you can bring home a happy, well-exercised (and tired!) dog who’s ready to curl up with you and your family. For our passionate team of dog lovers, it matters to us the way it matters to you.

Dog of the Week
For the week of 02-06-2023
Breed: Golden Retriever
Favorite Activities: Millie loves to chase her tail and roll around on the floor! She enjoys getting a good scrub and massage in the spa, and sits extra still while we dry her hair. Millie loves to shake hands with her coaches and be reminded she's the best girl.
Friends: Bo & Swanson
Most Lovable Qualities: Millie's smile has stolen everyone's heart. Along with her smile, we love her super wide and flat "pancake paws." Millie is the most polite lead walker and always minds her manners!
DIScOVER THE DOGTOPIA DIFFERENCE
We provide the highest quality open-play dog daycare in the Birmingham area. Dogtopia stands apart from our competitors because we are 100% focused on our community of dogs. Dogs thrive in a structured environment where they can socialize with like-minded friends, learn new things, stay active and have fun. That’s why Dogtopia of Homewood offers so much more than just a place to leave your dog when you can’t be with them.
We offer an environment dedicated to enriching your dog’s life, a place where your dog feels safe and loved by our certified Canine Coaches while enjoying the freedom to play and make friends in our supervised, open-play doggie daycare. Our unique training program ensures our certified Canine Coaches are skilled in maintaining safe play and rewarding good conduct, while gently discouraging bad behavior.
Our services include:
We have carefully designed our immaculate 7,000 square foot dog daycare and boarding facility and time-tested operating practices using scientific research and the best available technology.
- Our unique enrollment model builds the tight-knit pack needed for a safe and educational open-play environment.
- Rubberized playroom floors are designed to promote long-term joint and paw health.
- Pre-enrollment evaluation process ensures all new dogs are well suited to open-play.
- Advanced UV-filtered HVAC systems keep fresh, cool air constantly circulating in our playrooms.
- Rigorous daily cleaning regimes sanitize our playrooms using safe, pet-friendly cleaning products.
- Canine Coaches must complete extensive training on dog body language and behavior, designed by a canine behaviorist on staff at our support office.
- Three large playrooms where dogs are separated by size and play temperament so your dog can play with like-minded pups.
We are committed to complete transparency. Every playroom at Dogtopia is equipped with a live webcam (available on our website or our user-friendly app) where you can watch your pup enjoying its most exciting day ever! Cameras are on at all times during open-play (excluding naptime from 12 – 2 PM).
