Dog Daycare

Safe & Fun Dog Daycare in Aurora, CO

Dog daycare is not only about playtime, but also important to your pet’s wellbeing through daily exercise and socialization. Additionally, we want to offer our pet parents a convenient option for pet care whether you are at work, on vacation, or just need a break!

Dugan's daycare program is available 6:30AM to 7PM Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 6PM Saturday and 10AM to 5PM on Sunday. We also offer early check-in and late check-out to fit your schedule. With unrestricted check-in and check-out times during lobby hours and curbside services, dropping off your dog is quick and easy!

From puppies to seniors, whether your canine companion is large or small, there is plenty of space at their paw-tips. We have two outdoor yards and three indoor yards for your pet’s enjoyment. Dogs are separated by temperament and size so that guests of all shapes and sizes can have a fun and safe day. Our yards have play structures for jumping and running around, as well as kennels for naps and quiet time.

We develop relationships with our guests that transcend beyond the basic care provided at traditional doggie daycares. Dugan's staff is perceptive, focused, and caring. The exceptional care that we extend to our daycare friends is unmatched because at Dugan's Dog House, we care for your dog like we do our own!

The Importance of Socialization

Proper socialization with other dogs and other humans is critical to having a happy, healthy, and well-adjusted pet. With so many people spending more time at home in 2020, your furry family member may now be home alone for long periods of the day for the first time in a while, and the stress of solitude may cause anti-social habits such as destructive chewing, persistent digging, excessive barking, or other signs of separation anxiety. Pets may also show signs of stress such as drooling, attempts to escape, and pacing.

If your pet is suffering from separation anxiety or simply the boredom of home isolation after many months of company, bring them to daycare with us! Daycare provides your loved one with the pack environment they are accustomed to, creating a trusted second home for your pet while you are away. Bringing your pup to daycare with us provides all the physical, mental, and social exercise your dog needs. Give us a call to learn more about the socialization benefits of daycare.

The Importance of Resting

You may be asking – why is my pup resting and not outside with all their furry friends? Routine rest time during daycare is not only important to the health of your pet, but also for the safety of the entire pack. Resting refers to the downtime in between playtimes during daycare. This gives your pet a chance to recuperate so they do not exhaust themselves before their visit comes to an end, which is especially important for our full-day guests. Additionally, resting significantly decreases the chances of injuries within the pack. Just like with humans, rest allows for the microtears in their muscles from exercising to repair and become stronger.

We take the safety of our pets and staff very seriously. Resting is an important part of our safety guidelines, including temperament tests and dividing our daycare pups into playgroups based on this temperament and size.
