My Vet Doggy Daycare
Where furbabies learn, grow, and make new paw-friends
Why choose My Vet Doggy Daycare
We understand that leaving your furbaby at daycare can sometimes be stressful. My Vet Doggy Daycare strives to make leaving your furbaby with us a wonderful and fulfilling experience where your furbaby can learn and grow through our professionally curated daycare program while making new paw-friends.
Our daycare is also located next to a veterinary clinic, so paw parents can rest assured that their furbaby will have the best care at all times as we can provide immediate veterinary attention should the need arise.
Each of our services is carefully curated by My Vet’s team of qualified professionals to provide a fulfilling experience for your furbabies.
Daycare & Playgroup
Playgroups are designed to teach social skills to urban canines. At the end of each Playgroup, you will receive a report card of the day’s activities and updates. All dogs must be temperament tested and complete mandatory vaccines to participate.
Our partnering trainer can teach your dog all the skills they need to be an awesome furbaby. Furbabies enrolled in training will receive the guidance and support they need to grow into the well-behaved four-legged friend we know they can be. Click here to learn more about our Puppy School.
Going to the vet is often a stressful experience for our pets. We offer a more convenient option of having our partnering vet provide care at My Vet Doggy Daycare. Click here to learn more about My Vet Animal Hospital – www.myvetanimalhospital.com.au

Your furbaby will love playing all day with like-minded furry friends in My Vet’s safe and supervised daycare. Not only can you check in on how they are doing via our Instagram stories, but we will also provide regular report cards so you can rest assured they are having a wonderful, fulfilling experience when they are here.
All furbabies would need to undergo a 30-minute assessment prior to joining My Vet Doggy Daycare. We will provide an Assessment Card at the end of the session and discuss the results with all paw parents so you can better understand if your furbaby is suitable for daycare.

Frequently Asked Questions
Decided you want your furbaby to party like animals with us? Here’s everything you need to know.
1. How do I enrol my furbaby in My Vet Doggy Daycare?
Our assessment protocol has been carefully tailored by our Delta Accredited Dog Training Consultant.
You can book a trial assessment day here. The assessment fee is free.
Kindly note, our daycare facilities are tailored specifically for smaller to medium-sized (under 15kg) dogs. This specialization ensures a safe and joyful environment for all our furry friends while receiving the utmost care.
2. What is involved during my furbaby’s initial assessment?
You and your furbaby will need to stay for at least 30 minutes to complete the initial assessment. During this time, our trained pack leader will start with a thorough history of your furbaby’s health.
Following this, your furbaby will join our team members in a separate room to assess their tolerance for separation from their pawrents. During this time, a complete nose-to-tail assessment is completed to determine how your furbabies react to touch.
Now it’s time to make some new friends! The next step will involve a play session with existing doggy daycare members to determine how comfortable they are with their new fur-friends. This is to determine their suitability for open-play environments.
Throughout this process, if any issues are observed, our pack leader will recommend a tailored plan to help address these.
If at any point, your pup might be a little nervous (like our first day at school!), we might recommend coming back for another complimentary visit and assessment.
3. How old does my furbaby have to be to attend My Vet Doggy Daycare?
If your puppy is allowed to be out in public areas (once your vet has given you the green light), they are welcome to learn, grow and party with us!
4. What vaccinations and flea/worming preventions are required?
Keeping your furbaby safe and healthy is our utmost priority. As such all furbabies over 12 weeks of age must be up to date with:
- Vaccinations (C5 at minimum)
- Treatment for fleas, ticks, intestinal worms, and heartworm.
Any recent vaccinations must be given a minimum of 7 days prior to attending My Vet Doggy Daycare.
5. How can I make sure my furbaby is safe and comfortable?
We have really put a lot of thought into ensuring your furbaby’s health and safety is our utmost priority. We have implemented:
- state of the art double doors to increase safety
- vet hospital grade only cleaning products
- padded floors to reduce the impact on the joints
- custom designed air conditioning system to promote clean air at all times
- in-house climate-controlled environment
- Vet-approved toys
- pet safe paint
At My Vet Doggy Daycare, we strive to create a safe environment for all furbabies, but we understand that not every dog will get along. Our team is highly trained to understand dog body language, and if we see that an animal is becoming agitated and aggressive, we will take all required steps to remove that furbaby from the situation before it can escalate.
6. Does my dog need to be desexed?
At My Vet Doggy daycare, our focus is on the health and safety of all furbabies that come and play with us. To avoid any potential aggressive behaviours and/or accidental mating between furbabies, all furbabies over 7 months of age* must be desexed.
*12 months for certain breeds pending a medical letter from your veterinarian
7. What’s the difference between full day or half day?
Half day of doggy daycare is any visit up to 5 hours from the time of drop-off.
Full day of doggy daycare is any visit exceeding 5 hours from the time of drop-off.
Please be mindful of any late pick-ups for half-day bookings exceeding 15 minutes, as these will incur a full-day charge instead.
8. Would you recommend doggy day care if my furbaby is anxious?
It is important to remember an anxious furbaby is not a happy furbaby! At My Vet Doggy Daycare, we want our furry friends to only have an absolutely positive experience.
Any furbaby that has been assessed as anxious will be referred to our Delta Accredited dog trainer, Kim Doran, to prepare them to be suitable for doggy daycare.
9. What should I do in the meantime with my anxious furbaby?
Most furbabies with anxiety are much better suited to private group walking sessions.
Our experienced staff members will guide you and discuss the suitability of your furbaby if you have any concerns!
10. What do I need to bring for my furbaby at drop-off?
For the safety of all furbabies during drop-off times, we require all furbabies arriving in the greeting area to be on lead, with a well-fitted collar or harness.
11. How do drop-off and pick-up times work?
We know how busy your schedule can be and it’s important to be flexible! Our drop-off time for full-day attendees is between 7 am and 9 am. For furbabies attending our daycare for half-day activities, you can always organise a dedicated drop-off time with one of our friendly staff.
We understand that sometimes your schedule might change and if you need drop-off times outside of these hours, let one of our friendly staff know, and we will be more than happy to accommodate the best we can.
Our last pick-up time for all furbabies is at 6:00 pm. The exact pick-up time will be scheduled with our friendly staff at booking.
Please be mindful that there is a late pick-up fee of $15 after 6.15pm.
12. What if I’m running late for pick-up?
If you are running late, we will attempt to contact you and your secondary contact. We will continue to try to reach you & your secondary contact until 7 pm.
At 7 pm (at which we are now closed for business), to ensure the safety of your furbaby we will arrange for transfer to My Vet Zetland.
Please keep in mind that any fees incurred for a hospital stay at My Vet Zetland will be at the owner’s expense.
13. Do I get updates throughout the day?
Of course! We are very active on our social media and will be posting regular updates via our social media platform. Keep an eye on our social media because your furbaby might be the next Supaw-star Furbaby of the week!
14. My furbaby has special medical needs, can they still come to doggy daycare?
Here at My Vet Doggy Daycare, we welcome all furbabies, including those with special needs! This includes if there are any regular medications required to be given.
We do require a letter from your veterinarian stating your furbaby suitability to be in doggy daycare, but other than that, it’s pawty time!
