    Dogtopia of Columbus-Downtown is a place for your pup to stay when you’re unable to be with them – and so much more! Pet parents report a marked difference in their dog’s temperament and behavior after spending time with us. Not only will your dog enjoy action-packed days filled with exercise and fun in our new, state-of-the-art facility, but they will learn valuable skills, including how to be more well-behaved around humans and other dogs. You can even track their progress with our periodic report cards, which outline your pup’s activities, conduct and the furry friends they’ve made. 

    Discover the Dogtopia Difference! We offer:

    • Flexible drop off/pick-up times
    • Live webcams so you can watch your pup romping around with their BFFFs (best furry friends forever)! 
    • Up to 12 hours of off-leash open play
    • Climate-controlled playrooms to ensure your dog remains comfortable
    • Rubberized flooring that is easy on your dog’s paws and joints
    • Easy booking through our free mobile app
    • The highest standards of cleaning to ensure your pup is playing in a healthy environment

    We also offer doggie spa services including baths, nail trims, teeth cleaning and even some extra pampering like brush outs and bubble baths. Our spa team will have your pup feeling squeaky clean, smelling fresh and looking like a million bones!


    Your dog’s safety is just as important to us as it is to you. That’s why each of our playrooms is fully supervised by our highly trained certified Canine Coaches. Every Canine Coach must complete a rigorous training, designed by a canine behaviorist, on dog body language and behavior. This training allows them to recognize even the most subtle dog body language and diffuse any situation. They also have experience in managing multiple dogs at once and many different breeds.

    As part of a national franchise, we are well-versed in the most-proven operations and processes to keep the dogs healthy and safe!
