With ball pits, an agility course, sensory activities and a snooze area, it would be easy to think the day care centre in Clayhall Park was aimed at pre-schoolers.

However you would be barking up the wrong tree as the refurbished pavilion in Lord Avenue has actually been created for dogs. Between the hours of 7.45am and 6.30pm owners can drop their furry friends off at the centre with the knowledge that their beloved pups are in the safe hands of qualified animal carers.

“We have a lovely bacon scented bubble machine which is quite popular with the dogs as well as ball pools, sensory games and jumping equipment,” said owner Stacy Ismael who opened the centre in January.

“We also have a snoozing area for some of the older dogs or those who play too hard.” As well as having an outdoor enclosed space, the canines can also enjoy walks around the park.

Stacy already runs the Paw-Fect Grooming salon in Longwood Gardens, Clayhall, and decided to set up a doggy daycare service after listening to her customers’ needs.

“There is a big demand for doggy daycare and it gave me the idea to set up here in the park,” she said.

“It is important to get the right mix of dogs to play together and all new dogs get a free two hour trial.”

From jumping over obstacles to playing pack games of find the treat, it’s the ideal way to keep dogs entertained.
