When you can’t bring your dog along with you on a work trip or vacation, Dogtopia of Downtown Orlando is here to offer them a safe and clean home-away-from-home. Whether it’s a short overnight sleepover or an extended stay, treat your pup to a staycation full of fun and supervised playtime and give yourself the peace of mind of knowing that their comfort and safety are put first.
A DOWNTOWN ORLANDO BOARDING HOTSPOT
Dogtopia of Orlando’s boarding dogs get to spend their days playing with our daycare pups. Our brand-new 4,489 square feet facility offers an open-play, off-leash environment that gives your dog the freedom to make friends, get some exercise, and participate in mentally stimulating activities led by our certified Canine Coaches.
Every furry friend that interacts with your dog will have gone through a personal Meet & Greet session with our team to ensure they are the right fit for this type of open-play environment. We also make sure all dogs that stay with us are up to date on vaccinations and free of fleas, ticks, and any contagious diseases. We also require that all dogs seven months and older be spayed or neutered.
The best way to make sure you dog’s stay with us is as comfortable as possible is by familiarizing them with our space. If your dog is boarding with us for the first time and is not a Dogtopia daycare dog, we recommend at least one day of daycare – three days is ideal – prior to your boarding stay. This allows your dog to get familiar with our playrooms, the other dogs, the staff, and most importantly, it lets them know that you will be back to pick them up and that Dogtopia is just a temporary destination
ITEMS TO PACK FOR YOUR PUP’S STAY
Bringing familiar items from home is a great way to make your dog’s stay as comfortable as possible. That’s why we encourage you to bring their bedding in addition to their regular food, as maintaining their normal diet is important for their overall health and comfort. Although we have in-house food for your convenience, if you are bringing your own dog food, we recommend bringing a little bit extra than they usually eat, as your dog will be burning a lot more calories during playtime throughout the day.
During their stay, your dog will be fed breakfast and dinner, with treats or lunchtime at your request. To make sure we don’t disrupt your dog’s digestion, we’ll prepare and serve all food as requested by each pet parent, incorporating any dietary restrictions. We can also administer any medications your dog may be on.
WHAT’S ON THE ITINERARY?
For most of their day – approximately 8-10 hours – your pup will enjoy open-play, which includes brain games designed to improve manners and behavior. As much as the dogs (and our team) enjoy this time, we know how important “me” time is for your pup, which is why we offer naptime in the afternoon, just like a daycare for children. We also only use home-style crates to ensure maximum comfort.
LIVE WEBCAM ACCESS
If you find yourself missing your pup while you’re away, we offer the opportunity to check-in via our live webcams. You can access them using a desktop or via our free mobile app, which is available for both Apple and Android devices. Our webcams are only available to you and other Dogtopia pet parents, never to the public, allowing you to see your living their best doggie life during their boarding stay.
ADD A SPA SERVICE
We call this a staycation for a reason – pamper your pet with one of our spa treatments that can be added to their boarding stay. The list of services includes baths, teeth brushing, nail trimming, and ear cleaning. Get them looking and smelling fresh by the time you pick them up.
