Frequently asked questions

Opening Hours – our day-care runs from Monday to Friday, 7.30am through to 6.30pm. You can drop off or pick up your dog anytime between these hours.

Do you do half days? – Sorry we do not offer a half day service.

What is your daily rate? – Please contact us on 083 8901300 to discuss.

Can my dog get injured at daycare? – Dogs explore the world and play using their paws and mouths, so it is possible that your dogs could get a nick/scratch while in daycare. We do our best to make sure this does not happen by separating our dogs into size appropriate and playstyle groups. We have flexible, different play areas for dogs based on size and breed.

Do you accept intact dogs? – We do ask for all adult dogs who come to Coleen’s Doggie Daycare to be neutered. We do have some leeway regarding breeds and their development. Please call us on 083 8901300 to discuss further, as every dog is different. 

Do I have to book my dogs place in advance? Absolutely. We do not take in walk-in clients, you must pre-book your dogs’ daycare days in advance to avoid disappointment.

Is there an age limit for daycare? We accept dogs in with us once they had completed all their vaccines including kennel cough. We do not accept new dogs over the age of 8, in line with advice from pet insurance companies, 8 is considered to be the average age when dogs are “seniors” and as such, a busy daycare environment may be too lively for them. 

To guarantee a place in daycare and avoid disappointment we ask that you book in advance by one of the following ways:
