    Dog Daycare Services and More

    You send your kids to school to learn and have fun. Why should your four-legged family member be any different? Our daycare provides dog owners with a safe and fun place to leave their pet for the day. And as much as you would love to bring your dog with you on vacation, it might not be possible. Your pup will enjoy their own five-star accommodations when you board them with us. Our facility is equipped with two spacious, fully supervised playrooms. We separate dogs according to their size, temperament and play style to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for your beloved pet.

    Our facility is off-leash, allowing your pup total freedom. We provide dog parents with half-day or full-day daycare services seven days a week. If your pup is getting to be a bit smelly, we also offer a full range of spa services as a part of our dog daycare and dog boarding packages.

    Bathing your dog at home can be a stressful experience for both you and your pooch, not to mention the clean-up! We offer self-serve baths as well

    If you’re looking to pick up for food for your pup, we also provide Blue Buffalo’s nutritious dog food.

    When you pick up your dog in the evening or after an overnight stay, they will be clean and tired but happy after playing with their new friends.

    Our services include:

    If you’re planning to board your dog overnight or longer, we recommend bringing them to our location for a visit beforehand so they can meet our team and become comfortable in the new environment. Please contact us for a free, no obligation tour of our facilities. We would love to meet you and your dog and show you everything we have to offer!

    State of the Art Facility

    Think of our daycare in the same way you would dogs; it comes in all shapes. Our facility has two spacious indoor playrooms with specialized rubber flooring.

    The rubber flooring is specially designed with dogs’ comfort in mind; it’s easy on paws and hips and joints, something that is especially beneficial for older dogs and dogs suffering hip dysplasia and other joint ailments.

    Your dog may not be the only one who suffers from separation anxiety. We provide webcams in each of our playrooms so you check on them throughout the day. All you need is a device that is connected to the internet.  Enjoy peace of mind and a good laugh when you see your fur baby playing with their new BFFs!

    We realize how important your dog’s safety is. Each of our playrooms is supervised by our highly trained team. Dogtopia of Herndon trains our dog care professionals to recognize even the most subtle dog behavior and give anyone who needs it a time out.
