Our Dog Daycare Centre in Galway

Located in Liosban Business Park, our centre is a spacious, easily accessible place for owners to leave their dog during work hours, appointments, shopping trips, etc. so they don’t spend the day home alone and instead have somewhere to play and socialise with other dogs. All dogs from six month’s old are temperament assessed, ensuring a safe, controlled environment run by expert dog trainers who only use positive, reward-based training methods.

Visit our Dog Daycare and Boarding page to learn more about our dog daycare centre in Galway

Entry Requirements

Before joining our centre, dogs must undergo a temperament assessment to ensure they are suitable for a social environment. This assessment incurs a one-off €25 fee. Please also confirm that all vaccinations are up to date – including the kennel cough vaccination – and all male dogs over six months’ old are neutered.


Boarding

We are the first dog daycare centre in Galway to also provide a comprehensive overnight boarding service. Your dog is never caged, never alone, and sleeps in the same space as other dogs in a completely secure home, with an acre of space outside in which to roam around and play.



Behaviour Modification and Training

If your dog is exhibiting reactive, destructive behaviours – biting, chewing, excessive barking, etc. – we have specialists with proven experience in helping dogs modify their behaviour for the better. Moreover, our centre offers more standard training for dog owners, giving you the skills needed to improve communication and effectively issue commands.
