    We aim to enhance the joy of dog parenthood by helping your dog be happy, healthy and well-trained, which starts in our state-of-the-art facility that features three indoor playrooms. Dogs spend their day learning, socializing, and exercising with like-minded furry friends in a playroom designed just for them, as we separate our furry guests based on their size, temperament, and personality. Doing so helps ensure they feel most comfortable in our space and have greater freedom to form special bonds in a safe environment.

    Bigger and more mature dogs enjoy our Gym, our smaller friends who are 25lbs and under play in our Toy Box, and our Romper Room is ideal for dogs with high energy. Rest assured that we will find the best playroom for your dog at Dogtopia of East Pasadena.

    Our well-trained Canine Coaches are constantly engaging daycare dogs in activity, which helps keep their energy high and boredom low. When you pick up your pup, they will feel extra tired from a full day of fun – something many pet parents can appreciate.

    You can enroll in our weekly wellness plans, which offer flexibility and a range of benefits. The more pups consistently attend daycare, the more comfortable they feel, as dogs crave structure and routine. In no time, your pup will anticipate their next visit and thrive in our playrooms, and eventually be shaped into a better canine citizen.

    To learn about your pup’s progress, we have Pet Parent Check-Ins, where you can meet one-on-one with our Management to hear about your pup’s days and set goals. Daycare pups also take home periodic report cards outlining their behavior and who they socialized with during the day. In addition, we have private and group training available for those pups that need a little extra guidance.

    Leaving on a trip? We have overnight boarding where your pup will have the fun of play during the day and receive care and rest during the night. For their stay, we have both home-style crates and private suite options which pet parents pick from, with our suites often a popular choice for siblings or larger dogs.

    If you would like your pup to have some training, we have trainers on staff who can help. Whether it is to improve behavior, agility, or obedience, our trainers will understand your goals and develop an individual plan for you and your pup.

    Each time you need to request daycare, training, spa services or boarding, you can conveniently schedule it all through our app. Plus you can peek into our playrooms through the webcam which streams to the app during the play hours.

    Your pup will never be bored with our full assortment of fun-filled activities including pet picture days, agility courses, races, crafts and more! Our Canine Coaches have been trained to manage playrooms and lead the pups in engaging but safe play to ensure your pup has the best day ever! In the middle of the day we have a lunch break, and our kitchen cooks up a menu of weekly dishes such as our popular chicken and salmon bowls.

    Get your pup fresh and tidy with our spa services that include baths, tooth brushing, anal gland expressions and nail trimming.  This “relaxation break” is always a hit and leaves pups looking like a million bones. Our services, which are also open to non-enrolled guests, include extra pampering like blueberry facials and fresh dog cologne.

    Services at Dogtopia of East Pasadena include:

    Health and safety are a top priority at our location, which is why each dog that enters our facility must pass our Meet & Greet. This is an evaluation conducted by our team of experts that helps us ensure an off-leash, open-play environment suits your pup. It is also a chance for us to show you and your furry friend around our facility and answer any questions you may have – we want this to be a worthwhile experience for everyone involved!

    During the Meet & Greet, we will perform a snout-to-tail evaluation and an overall wellness check. To reenact a typical stay at our facility, we will bring in some staff to see how your pup interacts with them, we will test their level of comfort in our home-style crates, and will organize a controlled mini-play area with other dogs to determine how well they get along with other dogs.

    In addition to our observations, we will confirm that each dog is up-to-date on their vaccinations, such as Rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella. If you don’t have their records on you, we can always give your vet a call. We also ensure that puppies must be at least 12 weeks old (and vaccinated), while dogs seven months and older must be spayed/neutered.


    When your pup stays with us, whether for the day or an extended stay, they will be under the care of our highly trained Canine Coaches. Experts in dog body language and behavior, our Canine Coaches undergo a four-part training process with a custom curriculum approved by the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants and the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.

    Our Canine Coaches encourage tail-wagging fun by organizing activities and games to help each pup feel comfortable learning and playing with one another. During the eight to ten hours of play your dog will experience at Dogtopia of East Pasadena, coaches will supervise how the group interacts and can detect even the slightest change in behavior, which they will respond to accordingly.

    We understand entering a new space can be a bit unnerving for pups and pet parents alike, but you can rest assured that our Canine Coaches will supervise your dog and will intervene if they notice apprehension or fear. They will also monitor your pup’s mood and offer naps and break times when needed. Since our entire team at Dogtopia of East Pasadena loves dogs, your pup is in good hands.


    A clean space is important to us at Dogtopia of East Pasadena, which is why we have taken significant measures in our playrooms to prioritize your pup’s health and wellness. The flooring our dogs play on is a compressed rubber material, which, compared to cement or gravel, better supports long-term hip, joint, and paw health. In addition, we have separated our playrooms with floor-to-ceiling soundproof walls instead of fencing to prevent and contain any possible doggie airborne viruses from spreading; it also helps our dogs focus on one another rather than their furry neighbors.

    Our powerful HVAC system pulls out air and pumps in filtered air so that each dog room has a complete cycle of air every 20 minutes. We have also equipped UV-filtered HVAC systems in each playroom to help take care of bacteria while keeping the air fresh and circulating. Coupled with our room fans, the room feels as fresh as the outdoors.

    Our team disinfects surfaces and equipment multiple times a day using pet-safe cleaning products, which we also have on hand to quickly take care of any doggie accidents that may happen during playtime. Our cleaning protocols are backed by Dogtopia’s Environmental Biologist and Veterinary Scientist, making us the only national dog daycare brand with this distinction. The space your pup plays in exceeds industry standard.


    Want to see what your pup is up to at daycare? We have equipped webcams in each playroom, so you can tune in during play hours to catch all the fun. Our private stream is only available for pet parents via our website or free mobile app. With no limit to the number of viewing hours or times logged in, you can virtually join all the tail wags and smiles no matter where you are.


    We can’t wait to meet you and your pup at our brand-new facility! We are located along E Foothill Boulevard, across the street from Starbucks, Best Buy, Handel’s Ice Cream and Ross Dress for Less, and one block from Whole Foods and Ralphs.  We are in the same building as Kiddie Academy of Pasadena and a half of a block north of the 210 Freeway and Metro Gold Line Madre Station in the Hastings Ranch neighborhood. Enter our store from the parking lot that is accessible along Halstead Street.

    The community of Pasadena is important to us, as we have relationships with the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, Pasadena Pets Hospital, Centinela Feed and Pet Supplies and a number of local businesses with whom we partner. And while we are conveniently located for Pasadena pet parents, we also warmly welcome pet parents from Altadena, Arcadia, La Canada, South Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Monrovia, San Marino, Burbank, Glendale, Studio City and Los Angeles.
