Why Try Doggy Daycare?

Our dog daycare offers up to 12-hours a day of supervised dog-dog-group play Monday through Saturday and we offer limited daycare availability on Sunday! If you have a high energy dog and would like them to be tired out when you get home from work, then doggy daycare will be a helpful solution for you.  Or maybe your dog enjoys other dog companionship every now and again.  At Happy Pets, our indoor/outdoor dog boarding and dog daycare facility provides your dog with hours of human interaction with our trained and loving staff and playtime with other dogs that closely match their size or play temperaments.

Daycare Requirements

Pre-screening evaluations are required for all dogs coming for dog daycare. We make sure all dogs are non-aggressive and suitable for dog-dog group play. Our pre-screening evaluations are done on your first day of daycare and usually take 3-4 hours. Normal daycare rates apply. All dogs must be current on rabies and distemper and these vaccinations must be administered and documented by a licensed veterinarian. Dogs must be neutered/spayed by 2 years old. All dogs must also be free of flea, tick and other parasites such as ear mites.


  • Dog playground equipment both inside and outside.
  • Dog agility equipment of different styles and sizes from Playtopia.
  • Above-ground Swimming Pools for dogs who want to Splash It UP!

Daycare Dogs are Grouped by Size and Play Temperaments

We have four separate dog playgroups to ensure an appropriate fit for your dog’s energy and comfort. If you have an extra small dog, our teacup dogs (up to 10-lbs) have an indoor playground to play with other teacup and toy size doggies. Our other 3 indoor/outdoor playgrounds are for dogs over 10 lbs.

If you have an extra small dog, check out our Royal Palace at Chandler for Toy Dogs up to 20 lbs.

Our Facility

Our inside facility cover 5,000 sq. ft. of temperature controlled environment with ceiling fans for air movement and soothing music for enjoyment. Our outside playgrounds are 2500-sq ft using artificial turf and small crushed granite where the dogs usually potty. Our facility is cleaned using a Nilfisk floor scrubber and the cleaning solutions have enzymes that are pet-friendly and environmentally friendly. Those enzymes break down bacteria and keep our facility, the turf, and all the doggy playground equipment clean, sanitized, and smelling fresh.

Activities Schedule

We offer doggy daycare, dog-dog group play, Monday – Saturday from 6:00 am until 6:30 pm. Reservations for daycare are not needed. Daycare dogs are in group play ALL DAY from when you drop off until when you pick up. Daycare dogs are not put in a private villa unless you bring a lunch or request a nap and then they will be up for 90-minutes which is normal in our industry to prevent bloat.

During daycare, dogs play together under our close supervision. They get love and attention from our trained staff. We play bubbles with them, snuggle, read stories, and play follow the leader because it’s fun! We also work on basic commands such as sit, stay, shake, speak, roll over and name recognition. We help puppies learn how to self-regulate. During warmer weather, we fill up the above ground swimming pools and play with the water hose. We monitor all the dogs so everyone has a good time enjoying playtime in a safe environment. We have 3 indoor/outdoor play areas. We divide dogs by size and play styles, maturity levels, and confidence levels.

At our Chandler facility, we have the Royal Palace play yard for Toy Dogs up to 20 lbs.

Sundays due to our split shift schedule we do not offer full-day daycare. If you have an emergency or absolutely want daycare on Sundays, and if we have space, please know that your dog(s) will have to be in a villa between 11 am and 3 pm when we close to spend time with our families. Please note that we do not offer daycare on our six major holidays (New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, or Christmas Day).

Bring your Dogs to Socialize, Play and Make New Friends!

We are similar to a convenient drop-off supervised dog park but in a temperature controlled environment. And with the added assurance of live webcams to check in and see what your dogs are doing you can rest easy knowing they are well cared for and enjoying their time at Happy Pets Palace. Call us today at 480-207-1852 if you have additional questions or to schedule your dog’s meet and greet pre-screening evaluation. Evaluations are done on your dog’s first day of daycare. Daycare rates apply.

We understand and respect the AKC guidelines of dog breed characteristics. If shows your dog’s breed as “confident, strong-willed, dominant, not dog friendly, etc.” then it is good to respect the breed’s characteristics and most likely those breeds will not be a good fit in dog-dog group play. However, that is not always the case. Therefore, we give all breeds an opportunity to prescreen. Giant-sized dogs and physically strong dogs MUST listen to and respond appropriately to basic commands in group play or they will be expelled if causing problems for the staff or other dogs. We are one of the few facilities who take bully breeds, and they must be on their best behavior in order to remain in our group play setting. If your dog is high-energy, bring them earlier in the day (no later than 9am) when the other dogs in group still have high energy. Dropping off a high-energy dog after 10am is setting your dog up for failure because the other dogs have already been playing 3-4 hours and are getting tired. If you know your dog is not suitable for group play or if your dog is not neutered or spayed and two years or older, then please contact Bark Avenue Pet Resort.

Puppy Wednesdays

Puppies socializing is perfect for puppies from 4-months old up to one year old. We accept puppies as young as 10-weeks but most likely they will need to be 12-weeks old in order to meet health requirements. Puppies can play for a full day of doggy daycare on Puppy Wednesdays at $30 per dog, the half-day rate. If your puppy eats lunch, be sure to pack their lunch for them to enjoy at lunchtime. It is a very popular time for new puppies to learn socializing and play skills from other dogs and lots of puppies. It’s a pretty fun and active day!

Puppies must have their 3rd distemper vaccination and must have their Bordetella vaccination before coming to Happy Pets Palace. This usually happens around 4 months old.

Rabies vaccine is due by 4-months of age unless you live in Maricopa County. Maricopa County requires all dogs have their rabies vaccine and be licensed at 3-months of age.

All dogs must be neutered/spayed by 2 years old. We require all dogs be appropriate and suitable for co-ed group play and not show any signs of aggression. Female dogs cannot be in season.

All puppies must pre-screen before being allowed to play on Puppy Wednesday. We need to make sure all dogs are a good fit for our group play environment. Call 480-207-1852 to schedule your dog’s meet and greet pre-screening appointment or visit our Puppy Socializing section to learn more.
