QUALITY DOG DAYCARE IN FISHKILL, NY
Life can get busy, and pet parents don’t always have the time to give their pups the attention and affection they deserve all day. At Dogtopia of Fishkill, we will be the home-away-from-home for your dog, regardless of whether you need to drop them off for a quick visit or a longer stay. Whether you are going on a vacation, a work trip, or there are days when you just need some peace and quiet at home, why not treat your pup to hours of fun, exercise and socialization with furry friends? No matter the reason they’re with us, the caring team at Dogtopia of Fishkill will always treat your dog like one of our own.
One of the benefits of Dogtopia’s dog daycare is the lengths we go to in order to make sure your pup receives a fun-filled day. From the moment you drop them off, they will get to engage in agility games, exercise (which we’ve disguised as fun activities), brain games, bubble parties, and other activities that allows them to socialize with other dogs – including their new BFFFs (Best Furry Friends Forever). We also host regular theme days and photoshoots!
Daycare keeps your pup sharp and exercised while relieving you of the guilt of leaving them home alone. Socialization is incredibly important for the behavioral development of a dog and can also help relieve separation anxiety, which could result in destructive behavior at home. At Dogtopia, your dog is safe under the care of our certified Canine Coaches who monitor our pups closely during playtime, with safety being our #1 priority!
FISHKILL’S NEWEST DOG DAYCARE
In our brand-new, family-run facility of just over 6,100 square feet, we offer three spacious, open playrooms: the Toybox for smaller dogs, the Romper Room for medium-sized dogs with a bit more energy, and the Gym for our large dogs. Come visit us and we’ll determine which room is the right fit for your pup!
It’s essential that our dogs feel comfortable during playtime, and that pet parents feel comfortable dropping them off. That’s why our off-leash, open-play is supervised by our certified Canine Coaches, who are trained in identifying different dog behaviors and signals, and know how to recognize if anyone is stressed or uncomfortable. Along with the team members in the room, there is additional staff monitoring the playroom cameras.
You will find rubber flooring in each of our playrooms, specially designed for our dogs’ health and comfort. When our pups play, their paws, hips, and joints need something soft yet comfortable beneath them to avoid any pain or discomfort. Our compressed rubber flooring is similar to the flooring used in many high-end daycares and offers excellent sanitation that grass could never match. Our flooring resists smells, and our certified Canine Coaches always clean messes immediately to make sure the play area is sanitized to minimize the spread of germs and parasites. We also deep-clean our playrooms multiple times a day using pet-safe products.
We know pet parents worry that indoor play may ruin all the time they’ve put into housebreaking their dog. The truth is, housebroken dogs will not regress at Dogtopia, thanks to our specialized flooring. Our indoor facility is much like a park, with many of the same smells and textures. Each of our playrooms include a fire hydrant that helps to simulate an outside environment. Even though they are inside, your pup will believe they’re outside, which means they can play comfortably regardless of the weather outside. Rain, snow or humidity makes no difference to us thanks to our climate-controlled indoor space. Our daycare dogs play comfortably all year round!
OUR SAFETY AND CLEANING PROTOCOLS
Dogtopia of Fishkill enforces vigorous cleaning protocols. Unlike other daycares in the area, we utilize a highly regarded cleaning program exclusively designed by a leader in the animal care industry. We use a bio-enzymatic spot cleaner when dogs are in open play, and our playrooms are sanitized from top to bottom twice a day with pet-safe products to ensure the absolute highest level of cleanliness in our facility.
In addition, our facility is equipped with high-tech HVAC systems in each of our playrooms that offer a dual purpose: not only do they remove pesky odors and circulate fresh air into the rooms, but they also keep the rooms climate-controlled to ensure our pups are as comfortable as possible. Our systems also help to keep the air fresh and clean to breathe for both the dogs and our employees alike!
We have installed a fire hydrant potty platform in each of our playrooms to simulate an outside environment. Having a designated territory that is separate from our play space allows us to concentrate more frequent cleanings of that area using pet-safe products to keep our facility as clean and germ-free as possible for your furry family member.
ACCESS TO OUR LIVE WEBCAM
What’s better than television? Watching your dog on our live webcams! Each of our playrooms are equipped with a webcam that you can privately access through our website or our free Dogtopia mobile app. Get the chance to see your pup in action so you never feel like you are truly separated.
WHY CHOOSE DOGTOPIA OF FISHKILL DOGGIE DAYCARE?
When you can’t be by your pup’s side, Dogtopia of Fishkill is a great option because of our commitment to the health and safety of all the dogs who enter our facility. We offer consistent physical exercise, which is essential for the growth and happiness of your dog, and plenty of playtime so that they can be safely socialized with other pups of similar size and energy levels. This is what makes dogs grow into well-rounded canine citizens.
Hudson Valley pet parents can also add a spa treatment to their dog’s daycare stay. Whether your dog needs a bath, ear cleaning, nail trim or more, you’ll take home a prim and pampered pup!
We’ll first introduce your pup to our staff at a Meet & Greet session, where our qualified team will conduct an evaluation to make sure your pup is a good fit for off-leash, open-play daycare. During that time, we will do a nose-to-tail assessment to identify sensitivities in touch that your dog may have. We will also evaluate your pup’s comfort level with staff and other dogs in a controlled environment. We will require that your dog has proof of vaccination, either supplied by you or one of our team members can call your veterinarian for you. All dogs older than seven months must be spayed or neutered, and we do not discriminate by breed.
