    At Dogtopia of Wilmington, we understand the value that doggie daycare brings to our furry friends’ lives. Not only does it provide them with a safe and clean environment where they can burn off all that pent-up energy, but it also gives pups the opportunity to learn, make new friends and have fun! Each of our daycare dogs gets to enjoy up to 10 hours of safe and supervised play with like-minded pups in our off-leash, open playrooms. After a day of play at our facility, you’ll be picking up a tired, well-exercised dog who’s ready to go home and snuggle up with you.

    Need overnight or extended boarding services? Whether you’re taking a family trip or going away on business, your pup will enjoy five-star accommodations when you book our boarding services. Unlike traditional kennels, your dog with enjoy hours of off-leash play and socialization with their doggie daycare friends.

    When it comes to your dog’s hygiene, we’ve got you covered! Our doggie spa provides a wide range of services that take the anxiety and stress out of pampering your pup. Among our treatments, we offer baths, nail clipping, ear cleaning, and teeth brushing.

    Our facility boasts 3,000 square feet of open play area which is divided into 3 playrooms, as well as an outdoor area that’s perfect for those sunny days. Each of our canine guests is assigned to a playroom based on their size, temperament and playstyle to ensure safety and comfort for all.

    We’ve made it our priority to create an atmosphere that caters to your dog’s safety and health. All of our rooms come fully equipped with rubberized flooring that is both easy to clean and gentle on your pups’ paws and joints. We have also installed HVAC systems equipped with UV Lighting in each of our playrooms to keep a comfortable, climate-controlled environment and constantly circulate fresh and clean air to help keep the facility odor-free and reduce the risk of airborne bacteria and viruses.


    Safety and transparency are at the core of our values. We are committed to ensuring every one of our Dogtopia pups is cared for and has the best experience possible. Many of our current pet parents praise the cleanliness of our facility and talk about how confident they are that their furry friends are safe, secure, and getting lots of love from our friendly team.
