Doggie Day Care

Doggie Day Care Centre - Bunbury

Our Doggie Day Care is located at 1 Zaknic Place, Bunbury.  

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.  Small, medium and large dogs will be in separate areas unless otherwise requested by owners.

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 for one dog, $18 inc GST per hour for two dogs from the same family.  

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.

And of course we love our full day visitors!  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.

**All new dogs will require a 1hr introduction prior to the date of their first booking.  (Eg, a couple days before the first date of your first booking) You will need to be there the whole hour and all being well, we will confirm the first booking for your dog.  Please book your dog in for Doggie Day Care and then we’ll organise an introduction.

*If at any time whilst attending Day Care your dog hasn’t settled within a half hour of arriving (eg barking constantly in distress or nuisance barking), I’m sorry, but 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.

**Male dogs need to be desexed before they can attend our Doggie Day Care.  There MIGHT be exceptions (eg male puppies).  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.

Our Doggie Day Care Centre’s new location is 1 Zaknic Place, Bunbury.

We will be open from 7:30am to 5:30pm, Monday to Friday. You might like to take advantage of our add-on services –

The slots are strictly limited, so please book your Doggie Day Care today.

**Please note, Doggie Day Care is not a kennel.  There are no overnight stays. We will only accept dogs that are social and showing clear signs they are comfortable in the environment.

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.
  • 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 a month 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 dogs to be desexed before attending Doggie Day Care. The exception to this is a puppy up to 6 months old. While we do understand this will upset some people, please be assured we know what we’re doing. Our experience has shown that often there can be friction between fixed and non-fixed dogs.  Yes, there can be friction between any dogs – but let’s not add to it by introducing an entire large breed male (for example) into the mix. 
  • The reason we will allow a dog into Doggie Day Care who hasn’t been desexed (up to 6 months of age) is because most dogs aren’t desexed until they’re at least 6 months old.
  • We will not be feeding dogs any treats unless you give your permission.  We will have some sort of a tagging system that will identify which dogs can be given treats and which dogs have allergies.  (For example, some type of a ribbon or hair tie attached to their collar showing if the doggie has an allergy). We will organise this.  Please feel free to provide lunch for your doggie.  We will have a dedicated eating area. Also feel free to provide treats for your doggie if they’re on a strict diet.  
  • 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.
  • 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 is saved there.
