Doggy Daycare

While you’re at work or taking a break from doggy duties, you can rest assured that your four-legged friend will be safe and mentally stimulated with our experienced doggy day care team.

We run a fun and exciting doggy daycare for our hairy friends.

Our Approach

We like to get to know each and every dog who stays at Hounds of Hackney to understand their unique personality and needs, so we encourage all dogs and owners to join us for a meet and greet prior to their first day.

We ensure that your beloved best friend leaves us feeling contented and happy, ready for a cuddle or a snooze at the end of the day.


Daycare is open from 8:00am till 6:00pm. (Late fee apply: £5 if pickup is after 6pm & £10 if pickup is after 6.30)

£44.99 (with HoH collecting the dog/s within our catchment areas in a van – Minimum Booking: 3 days a week) – Pick ups between 8.30 – 10.30 drop offs between 3.30 -5.30 both timings depend on traffic, route and weather.

£34.99 (walk-ins – that’s for the client/Pawrent dropping to and picking from HoH).

 

Please note: If the doggy has not attended daycare for 2 weeks we will have to give up their place to another dog waiting to join us.For any additional requirements or needs please check with us.

An example of our daily programme

Morning – We start to organise exciting activities (depending on the dogs that are coming so we can always mix it up and make it interesting for them) toys, kongs with peanut butter, exercise toys including tug of war ropes, tennis balls,snuffle matts and special dog activity board games.

We then head off around 9.30am to our private fully fenced-in doggy adventure park where they can be let off with peace of mind. With clean air and natural surroundings we have experienced that the dogs love it.

Midday – Once have have settled at our doggy adventure park, we let the dogs enjoy a special sensory area that we have created and is full of herbs and safe plants for the dogs to sniff and really engage with. We also have some great agility activities to really get them working (the ones that want to, of course).

UPDATE: Due to the ongoing dognappers active in hackney, for the safety of our dogs and our staff we will not be posting where we are walking them etc. We always carry an attack alarm, self protection dye spray. We have the safety of our dogs and staff as our top priority!

Afternoon – After a little snooze it is lunch time for the pups under 7 months old. We have a separate area for the dogs to eat lunch. After lunch we get down to do more fun activities such as doing some agility games, some basic training with the dogs, fun in the large bull pit or a nice little swing in the hammock for the dog that wishes to relax a little more.

In the summer on warm days, we have two large paddling pools and one puppy paddling pool. We also bring out frozen fruits, peanut butter ice cubes, frozen peanut butter lick matts and frozen kongs with fruits/peanut butter. In the summer house and the main house we have air conditioning units with inbuilt air purifiers to help keep them cool and the air clean.

After spending a fun packed day in our nearly 3 acre fenced-in dog adventure park, we head back in time for them to have a light snooze and to be collected by their pawrents.

Please note: If your puppy is over 6 months old they won’t need to bring any lunch unless advised by a vet etc. 🍽

Why is Doggy Daycare essential?

Doggy daycare is essential for any pup or dog to help them with socialising, independence, stimulation, exercise and separation anxiety. We have many stimulation games and activities throughout the day to help pups/dogs really make use of their brain and senses. We provide one human to roughly four dogs so we really get to know the pup/dogs on a personal level and spend time with them to know their individual personalities and behaviour.

We recommend sending your puppy to daycare a week or so from having their 2nd jabs! This will help them socialise and give them a solid routine as early as possible. To take on any new puppy/dog for daycare we will invite you for a meet and greet session if we have any spaces available (by appointment only). 🐶
