Here's what some of our friends had to say about doggy day care

“It’s so important to have dog sitters and dog boarders these days - DogBuddy makes it easy for people to develop trusting relationships and know their dog’s being properly looked after”. Marc Abraham, TV Vet & PupAid Founder

Our 20,000 experienced dog sitters have provided more than 200,000 fun and friendly home dog care nights. That’s more than 500 years of dog care experience!

We're here to make finding day care for your dog a walk in the park

Venturing out for a day of fun with friends or family? Or need a hand caring for your pooch while you’re stuck at work? Doggy day care is the perfect way to make sure your furry friend gets the exercise and attention they need with a dedicated and reliable dog lover for the day.

Whether you’ve got a jam-packed work day ahead, or just want to free up a little time for yourself, doggy day care means your pup won’t need to be put into a kennel or spend the day alone at home. Instead they’ll have quality time playing and relaxing while you enjoy some fun of your own.

We have thousands of experienced, friendly dog sitters available to care for your dog for the day while you’re busy. They’ll ensure your pet is properly looked after and has great company for the whole day. Want to check up on your happy hound? Your dog sitter will send you pictures of your pooch enjoying their playtime with their new human buddy.

All of our dog sitters are vetted by the DogBuddy team as well as being reviewed by other dog owners, so you can find the ideal match for your pet by checking our users’ listings and discover the perfect daycare playmate for your pooch.
