Dog Daycare

Open – Essential Business

We are open for daycare with modified hours during the pandemic.

Picture this…

Your dog – enjoying a day full of play and socializing in an indoor playroom with special rubber flooring and large outdoor play yards with ‘hide n’ seek’ structures and a whole group of their best furry friends.

You – relaxing with the knowledge that your dog is not at home chewing on the furniture, barking, howling, crying or digging holes around the yard looking for an escape!

Doggy Haven Resort Daycare offers the perfect way to entertain and exercise your canine companion while you are away or at work. From our accessible Bothell location, we serve clients in the greater Seattle area from all the way downtown to Edmonds to Everett, or from Bellevue and Woodinville on the Eastside.


Important!

The safety of our dogs and staff is very important to us. Due to the nature of our business we adhere to the following best practices:

  • Only well socialized dogs are allowed at Doggy Haven Resort

    For any age, type, or breed of dog the ideal daycare candidate has most or all of the following experience or behaviors: 

    • Has known and positive previous socialization
    • Receives regular exercise and mental stimulation at home
    • Enjoys interaction with other dogs *and* people
    • Is a healthy and moderately active dog
    • Has completed some positive reinforcement training or obedience classes
    • Does not have any bullying, resource guarding, or high prey drive traits
  • New dogs will need to complete a trial day
  • Here is a list of PURE BRED dogs that GENERALLY are not a good fit for our playgroups. If your dog is one of the breeds below, please feel free to call so we can discuss the temperament and socialization of your companions to see if they would be a good fit.
    • Akita
    • American Staffordshire Terrier
    • Bull Mastiff
    • Chow Chow
    • Pit Bull
    • Rottweiler
  • Due to our experience we are unable to accept any pure bred German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois at this time, we apologize for any inconvenience.
  • We are proud to partner with Homeward Pet in Woodinville and happy to meet and care for dogs of all backgrounds and situations. If you have welcomed a new rescue into your family here is something to keep in mind before going out of town or starting a new daycare routine. 3/3/3 rule for MOST rescue dogs: Minimum 3 days to “detox” and adjust to being out of the shelter or foster home and being in a new home. Minimum 3 weeks to start to settle, to feel comfortable in their new space with their new family. Minimum 3 months to feel at HOME.     

  • Spay and Neuter Requirements:
    • Female dogs must be spayed, if over 6 months of age
    • Male dogs must be neutered, if over 6 months of age
    • No exceptions allowed

  • Receives regular exercise and mental stimulation at home
  • Enjoys interaction with other dogs *and* people

Trial day

We want all visits to Doggy Haven to be successful! Having new dogs participate in trial days ensures that your dog will be healthy and happy in our group play environment, and give them a chance to come have fun and then get to go home at the end of the day.

Trials can be scheduled Monday through Friday at either 9:30 am or 10:30 am for $38 (reduced rate available for a second or third dog also doing a trial at same time). We only have space for one family at each of these times, so please plan ahead. Paperwork and veterinary requirements must be completed prior to this visit, including a negative fecal exam within two weeks of trial date, or we cannot accept your dog into our care for the safety of our other guests.

Prepayment

Participation in daycare requires payment prior to attendance.

Health

For all stays with us, it is important that dogs have up-to-date vaccinations which include (depending on age of dog): Rabies, DHPP, Bordetella (good for either 6 months or 1 year), and a clean fecal exam (these are good for 6 months after trial is successfully completed). To attend daycare routinely, we do require all dogs to be on a regular flea control program.

Emergency Vet Services

In the event of an emergency, Doggy Haven Resort will make every attempt to contact you. If we are unable to contact you, we will take your dog to a local veterinary center of our choosing. All emergency services required for your dog will be charged to you at the time of pick-up.
