    Dogtopia of Harrison Ave

    Dogtopia of Harrison Ave is a family-run business who will treat your dog like one of our own! We understand the value daycare brings to our furry friends’ lives. 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.

    Dogs thrive in an environment that promotes socialization, learning, exercise, and fun. That’s why Dogtopia of Harrison Ave offers so much more than just a place to leave your dog during the day.

Our facility comes with spacious, supervised playrooms in which dogs are placed according to their size, temperament and play style to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for your beloved pet. Our certified Canine Coaches are skilled in maintaining safe play and rewarding good-dog behaviors, while gently discouraging other.

    We provide dog parents with half-day or full-day daycare. If your pup needs a spa day, we also offer spa services as a part of our daycare and boarding packages. When you pick up your dog at the end of the day, you’ll pick up a perfectly happy and played out pup.
