We send our children to school to learn, make friends, and have fun. Why should our four-legged family members be any different? We are obsessed with creating the perfect environment for your pup to thrive during the day, so you can bring home a happy, well-exercised dog who’s ready to snuggle with you and your less-furry family.

Our team of Certified Canine Coaches can’t wait to love and care for your pup here where we offer quality, convenient dog daycare, boarding and spa services. We will ensure your furry family member enjoys plenty of fun and safe socialization at our brand new facility.

Your pups give you their all every day; they wake up happy and are ready for each new day. The owners, and long time Cary-Raleigh residents: Inma, Dan, and Ryan, want to treat them to the most exciting day ever! You’ll usually find at least one, if not all, of the family working at Dogtopia of Harrison Ave. We understand that your dog, like our lab Luna, is a member of the family.
