Doggie Day Care Centre -

The largest Doggie Day Care Centre in Bunbury!

Doggie Day Care Centre - Bunbury

Is your dog feeling lonely and bored?  Then Fido needs us!  We offer a safe, fun environment for dogs to socialise with other dogs and humans. 

Our Doggie Day Care is located at 1 Zaknic Place, Bunbury (the old Indoor Cricket Centre).  

We have large separate areas for the doggies to learn social skills and play, as well as a separate area for the doggies that need some rest.  We place dogs in different areas based on energy levels and personality.

The Doggie Day Care Centre is designed to focus on your doggies having fun and interacting with other dogs as well as humans. Our staff will ensure that your doggie is engaged and happy.

We offer short visits up to 2 hours (eg if you need to go shopping or to the movies you can drop Fluffy in to us).  The price of these visits are $11 inc GST per hour, per dog (Tuesdays to Fridays).

We also offer half day bookings (between 2 and 5 hours). The price of half day bookings are $40 inc GST for one dog, $70 inc GST for two dogs from the same family (Tuesdays to Fridays).

And of course we love our full day visitors, too!  The price of a full day booking (more than 5 hours) is $60 inc GST for one dog, $100 inc GST for two dogs from the same family (Tuesdays to Fridays).

*Mondays we are open 9am to 3pm for Puppy Kindy and Learn & Play (see below).

A Team Member can transport your doggie to and from Doggie Day Care for a fee of $14 inc GST each way.  

**All new dogs will require an introduction prior to the date of their first booking.  (Eg, a couple days before the first date of your first booking).  All being well, we will confirm the first booking for your dog.  Please book your dog in for a meet n greet via this website’s booking form. 

*If at any time whilst attending Day Care your dog hasn’t settled within an hour or so of arriving (eg barking constantly in distress or nuisance barking), we might be calling you to pick your doggie up.  We need to be respectful of our neighbours and the noise levels need to be kept at a reasonable level, as well as being respectful of the comfort of the other dogs attending.  You will not be charged any fees in this instance, as long as your dog is picked up within an hour of our call to you.  Please note, we do have Citronella Spray Bark Collars onsite and have found them to be very effective with dogs that are constantly barking.  The Collars do not stay on all day – short periods of time with the collar on are generally enough to show a change in behaviour.  The collars are not ‘zappers’.  They simply spray a small amount of citronella under the chin of the dog, which is enough to stop the dog from barking.  If your dog has a known citronella allergy, please be sure to let us know.

**Male dogs need to be desexed before they can attend our Doggie Day Care (except Mondays – see below under the Training section).  A proof of desexing certificate/letter will need to be uploaded when making your first booking – or you can email it to us at info@scoutaboutpetcare.com.au if the document is too large to upload.  While we generally will allow ‘entire’ female dogs, they are absolutely not permitted to attend when in heat and for a week after finishing their heat.  

**All vaccinations must be up to date prior to your dog attending and you will need to upload the vaccination certificate when making your first booking – or you can email it to us at info@scoutaboutpetcare.com.au if the document is too large to upload.

We also do Doggie Washing and Blow Dry at the Doggie Day Care Centre – you can book a Hydrobath below.

FAQ

We will invoice you each week via email. Please be sure to check your spam/junk folder in your emails.

24 hours notice is required if you wish to cancel your Doggie Day Care booking.  Failure to do so will result in 50% of the usual fee being charged. 

We are closed on Public Holidays.

Please take note of the conditions below. They are non-negotiable and we’re sure you can understand why!

  • We will decide if your doggie is suitable to attend Doggie Day Care.  We absolutely reserve the right to make the
    decision and while we do not wish to upset you, if your doggie is not considered suitable to Doggie Day Care we will advise you in writing and your doggie will not be able to attend Doggie Day Care again until he/she has had training IN our Centre by a qualified Dog Trainer and the Trainer deems your doggie is suited to attend (We can help you organise this).  The safety and happiness of all of the dogs attending Doggie Day Care is paramount.
  • We do have Citronella Spray Bark Collars onsite and have found them to be very effective with dogs that are constantly barking.  The Collars do not stay on all day – short periods of time with the collar on are generally enough to show a change in behaviour. 
  • Every dog’s vaccinations MUST be up to date. We will ask for proof of when their last vaccination was done and with your permission, we will happily call the Vet on your behalf to get the information if you don’t have it to hand.
  • We will advise you in advance when your dog’s vaccinations are due. You will need to provide proof of the vaccination being done and if it isn’t done before the due date, your doggie won’t be allowed back until we receive proof that it has been done. We would suggest you book your doggie in for their vaccination immediately when we advise you it is due, just to ensure all is up to date before the expiry date. The last thing the doggies need is an outbreak of Parvo Virus or Kennel Cough. If you aren’t aware of what these are, please Google them!
  • We do require all male dogs to be desexed before attending Doggie Day Care. While we do understand this will upset some people, please be assured we know what we’re doing. 
  • We will not be feeding dogs any treats unless you provide their treats.  Your dog will be taken out of the area to be fed alone.  
  • Please note, you will need to make all bookings at least 2 business days prior to the date you want your doggie booked in. Here’s a guide:  
  • Monday and/or Tuesday attendance – booking must be made the Friday before
  • Wednesday attendance – booking must be made the Monday before
  • Thursday attendance – booking must be made the Tuesday before
  • Friday attendance – booking must be made the Wednesday before
  • We need to know well in advance what dogs are attending so we can coordinate where they will be situated on the day.  Some dogs aren’t so good together, but are great with others.  So please follow the guidelines above so we can plan ahead.
  • Bookings generally won’t be processed over the weekend.  Office hours will be Monday to Friday, 7.30am to 5.30pm.  We need a break, too!
  • You will make your first booking via our website.  This can be a one-off booking or a recurring booking.  If it’s a recurring booking, you’ll only need to make it once.  If it’s a casual booking you will need to book every time.  Please note the website will save your info if you create yourself a free account – that way you only need to log on again and all of your info will already be there.  This information is only accessible by the Business Owner, you and our web guy (who is a friend of the Business Owner and subject to privacy rules/laws).
