Dog daycare (or doggie daycare as we like to call it) is a great solution for your dog when you’re faced with long workdays, day trips, real-estate showings, house-guests, entertaining, or even on moving day. On your busiest days, your dog will enjoy playing safely with canine friends instead of spending the time alone or separated from the action. One of our friendly animal coaches will spend time with your dog to get to know him/her, and pair them up with a small group of other dogs for playtime based on a variety of factors including personality, size, and temperament. At the end of your dog’s first day of daycare, you’ll receive a report card with their photo on the front and information on how they handled the day – with playing with others and reacting to new people, for example.
You’ll also have the option of rewarding your dog with a Tender Loving Care (TLC) session, a leashed walk, or a 1.5 hour nature hike (nature hikes are upcoming at DogServices West). While we freely dole out head-scratches, good-boy pats, and tummy rubs, a TLC session consists of 15 minutes of 1-on-1 time with a caring staff member, and is especially helpful for new dogs to help them get to know the staff and feel more comfortable, as well as older dogs with less mobility and dogs who may be shy around other dogs, so they can still get the attention and socialization dogs crave. If you have more than one dog, you’ll be happy to hear about our multi-dog discounts for dog daycare and boarding. No matter how many dogs you have, you’ll find DogServices is one of the most affordable dog daycare providers in Richmond and Glen Allen, Virginia. In order to keep meals consistent with home, you are required to bring food for your dog. Individual packaging is greatly appreciated!

Reservations are required for daycare, but you can easily make a reservation online. Bordetella, DHLPPC and Rabies vaccinations are mandatory as well as no vet visits 5 or less days before your reservation. Proof of these shots is required, and your vet will be happy to fax us a copy at your request. Click here to read our policy on vaccine waiting periods.
