Milwaukee East Side Dog Daycare

It's all about my quality time with BFFFs.  You know - socializing, playing and being a smarty pants...sans the pants.


Sometimes pet parents can’t give their pups all the attention and affection they deserve during the day – and that’s where we come in. At Dogtopia of Milwaukee East Side. we offer fun-filled days of socializing, learning, and exercise that will keep your pup’s tail wagging all day long!

With our quality dog daycare, you’ll no longer feel guilt about not having enough time or energy to play with your pup after a long day of work. When they return from daycare, you’ll have a happy, tired dog, and will be a happy, guilt-free pet parent. Whether you need care for a few hours or the whole day, we have a selection of packages designed to meet all your dog daycare requirements.

We invite all breeds of dogs to our facilities; all happy and social dogs who pass our Meet & Greet are welcome!


Our 6200 sq ft. dog care center includes four playrooms (The Toy Box, The Junior High, The Romper Room and The Gym). Each playroom is designed for dogs of different sizes and play styles, which helps to keep all dogs safe and happy to ensure a positive experience for all. Our team of certified Canine Coaches carefully supervises playtime to ensure everyone is having a safe and fun experience. These highly trained coaches offer hands-on interactions and pay close attention to the dynamics in the room, using positive reinforcement to encourage good behavior.

Each playroom is climate-controlled, so no matter the weather outside, your dog will be comfortable and content. We also have rubberized floors in each playroom to promote canine joint health and they are much safer than concrete floors that you might often see in other dog daycares.

Safety is a top priority for us at Milwaukee East Side, which is why all of our cleaning products are 100% pet-safe, which we use for spot cleaning and also to sanitize our playrooms top to bottom twice daily. We even cover what you can’t see: each playroom is fully equipped with its own HVAC and UV light systems that keep fresh air flowing, help eliminate any airborne bacteria, and maintain the perfect temperature during play time and nap time.


We can’t wait for your dog to have the most exciting day ever at Milwaukee East Side! Our dog daycare offers plenty of playtime, learning, and exercise opportunities, all of which are important for your pup’s health. In our off-leash, open-lay environment, we put your dog’s safety and comfort first.

Here are just some of the benefits of our daycare:

  • 8-10 hours a day of open play to encourage socialization and exercise.
  • Regular photoshoots and themed days for our pups to enjoy.
  • Brain games aimed to identify the smarty pants in the room and keep dogs engaged with fun learning activities.
  • Home-style crates for resting, feeding and overnight stays.
  • Natural cleaning products created specifically with your dog’s safety in mind.
  • Periodic report cards on your dog’s progress so that you are always kept in the loop.
  • A free mobile app, which lets you request appointments, review your schedule, and more.
  • Outstanding customer service.
  • A passion for providing both pet parents and pups with the best possible daycare.
  • A vow to treat your dog like a member of our family!

To ensure the safety and comfort of all our canine guests, we ask all new dogs to attend a Meet & Greet session before their first day of daycare. A trained evaluator will perform a wellness check and determine your pup’s comfort level with our staff, our homestyle crates used for nap time, and our open play environment. This will give your dog a chance to get used to our facility with you close by before their first day.


Spending time away from your furry family member can take some getting used to! That’s why we have set up live webcams in each playroom with private access for our pet parents. You can take a peek throughout your day at all the fun activities your dog is up to on our webcams, which you can access through our website or free mobile app.
