Good News!

We are able to start taking applications for our doggie daycare again! We will have daycare at our current location , 4922 Del Ray, and in our new additional location , 4923 Cordell. Our Cordell location will be opening in late October/early November. Thank you all for your patience!

We will be starting Temperament Testing right away!

First, if you haven't registered your dog with us, please follow the steps below to do so. Once you have registered, fill out the online questionnaire for a Temperament Test. (Questionnaire is highlighted in pink). Once you have registered and sent in your questionnaire, we will contact you to set up a Temperament Test for your dog. We will be conducting them on Saturdays, Sundays and some designated weekdays.

At the time of your dog's Temp Test, we will be able to determine which of our daycare group(s) that he/she would be most happy playing in. We will have three groups :

Little Biggies - Del Ray

This group organically formed after Covid, Little Biggies. We started our daycare by dividing the week into two separate groups ( little dogs - Mighty Tinys and big dogs - Furricanes). We soon had clients who needed more days and began to put dogs of both all sizes and suitable temperaments together. It was the only solution that we could come up with. It didn't fit all, but the ones who were candidates have loved it and still do! So, we are keeping the mixed group going!

Mighty Tinys - Cordell

This play group is for small to medium sized pups. ( Shih Tzu, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Bichon, Cavapoo, Schnauzer, Cocker Spaniel, etc. ) For those who want their dog to play with pups of a similar small size and energy level, this playgroup is for you.

Furricanes - Cordell

Let the big guys and gals roll! Doodles, Labs, Goldens, Hounds, Springers.....this is your group!

Once your dog has passed his/her Temp Test, you will be able to start scheduling them for daycare after we open our Cordell location. Much of the renovation has been done. Installation of epoxy flooring and daycare fencing, finished! Reception is getting set up. Our delay is due to our wait for our special daycare flooring to be installed. It will be worth it. It's a padenpor rubber floor ( just like our green daycare floor in Del Ray!) that is non slip, easy on the joints and cleans up beautifully. They even have our daycare dog's Maggie and Lexie starring on their website homepage ! We can work around the flooring installation temporarily and have some daycare on the regular floor. But once they start, there will be a three week wait for completion. Target start date for the flooring company is targeted to be October 2nd. Thus our expectation of a full opening being late October to early November.


We are open for daycare all week!
Monday - Saturday 7am - 7pm
Sunday 12pm - 7pm

We have the ability to divide our daycare into two different areas to accommodate size and energy level. We have changed up our approach a bit. We are able to divide our daycare dogs into two groups by partitioning the area so that higher energy dogs can be separated from the lower energy dogs. This means that we can have some smaller dogs who are in need of a higher level of play with some of the larger dogs and vice versa. Owners can stipulate the kind of play group that they are comfortable with their dog participating in.

Our daycare floor is covered in sport court quality flooring called Padenpor that helps keep the dogs’ joint’s safe during play. We also have an outdoor patio play area that is a lot of fun for them during nice weather.

In addition to playtime, we give each dog an outdoor walk. It’s a nice time for some one-on-one and also helps keep potty training in play.  

Getting Started with Daycare
Here’s how to get started:

First Step

Make sure that your dog is up to date on all vaccines required before making an appointment for a Temperament Test. If you are not already in our system as a grooming customer and have your dog’s vaccines on file, you will need to send in veterinary certification of the vaccines listed below
Required vaccines include:
• All Puppy Core Vaccines
• Rabies
• Bordetella

We can accept puppies that are completely vaccinated and capable of attending daycare. After they reach 7 months, all dogs attending must be spayed or neutered.

Second Step

Fill out our Temperament Test questionnaire. Once you have completed it, we will be in touch with you about setting up your dog’s Temperament Test. If you don’t hear from us within a day, please call us at 301-656-2663 and we will get you set up! The testing is done early in the day between 9am and 2pm. It usually takes only 30 minutes or so.

Third Step

Your dog just passed the first part of his/her Temperament Test! Congratulations! Now let’s get his/her first play group scheduled. The first day of daycare is free. It is really the second part of testing, as it is only through active play that we can truly be sure about each dog’s nature.

Fourth Step

Playgroup Sign Up

Here is how to get started. You can access your information by logging in using the Doggie Daycare Playgroup Sign Up button, located above. When you registered, you selected your username and password. (For those of you whom we manually registered and who did not select a username or password, your username is your email address. You can use your email/username to start, then click "Forgot Password" to make your own password.)


You now will be able to select days and timeframes for your dog to play! We ask that you do the following:

  • Select the days that you need.
  • Select a timeframe: Half Day or Full Day
  • Accurately put down your expected start and finish time matching your use.
  • Please take your dog off the daily schedule as soon as you know that you can not get him/her in for daycare. If you are unsure how to remove your dog through your portal, you can always call us or email us at to let us know.
  • Be considerate and make sure that your dog is healthy enough to attend daycare.

We are excited that many clients are able to go back to work (in person) and ask for your help in making your dog's daycare reservations as soon as you know your schedule. We will have a limit for each group and are capping online reservations when we reach near capacity for each group so that we can plan staffing, etc. If you have an issue signing up, please email us at or call 301-656-2663 for help.

Please let us know about any days that you might need to cancel as soon as possible. You can either do this by going to your online portal, sending an email or just call us (especially if it is within 24 hours) to cancel a time frame that your dog isn't able to attend.
