FAQ’s

There’s no doubt that there are a number of benefits to taking your dog to a doggy daycare. These include safe, friendly socialisation, relief from stress and boredom, prevention of destructive behaviour, and increased exercise (not to mention the fun activities and cuddles!).

Here at Suffolk Dog Town, we require all dogs over the age of six months to take a temperament test before they join our doggy daycare creche. This is to ensure they’d be happy spending a full or half day with us – away from their owners and interacting with other dogs. Even if you find your pup wouldn’t be a good fit for joining our daycare creche, we’re sure they’d love a trip to the grooming salon or a treat from our boutique!

The cost of sending your dog to a doggy daycare will vary depending on the location, facilities available and the centre you choose, but the average rate is typically between £20-£40 per dog per day. 

A full 10-hour day of fun at Suffolk Dog Town costs just £30, or £23 for a morning half-day. We offer a range of package deals at discounted rates, further discounts for 2-dog families and allow early drop-off and late pick-up at an additional charge. Please visit our daycare creche page to see our full daycare pricing information, or visit our dog grooming page for prices.

Dogs are naturally social animals that love to play in a pack and make new canine friends! Doggy daycare provides the perfect environment for your dog to meet and spend time with other dogs of various sizes and breeds, giving them confidence and allowing them to burn off energy. It is the ideal environment to start socialising your young puppy and introduction to the daycare creche environment should be encouraged from as young an age as possible. As soon as your puppy is fully vaccinated they can join our daycare family!

It’s crucial to start socialising your dog as early as possible in life, so, at Suffolk Dog Town, we also offer puppy socialisation sessions to get your pup used to other dogs from an early age. With fun weekly playdates, we make sure your puppy gets off to the best start in life, so they can join the pack in our daycare creche as soon as they’re ready.

We recommend waiting until your puppy is at least 12 weeks old before taking them to daycare. They must be fully vaccinated with both sets of vaccinations, including Kennel Cough, before they can start socialising with other dogs. 

If you have a fully vaccinated puppy older than 12 weeks, you can join the family at Suffolk Dog Town straight away! All new puppies are introduced slowly, using a puppy pen and separate playrooms. When they first join us, we recommend puppies only play for half a day, building up to a full day of fun when they’re ready.

Alongside attending our daycare creche, your puppy can also join one of our professional puppy socialisation sessions and training classes. These provide the perfect opportunity for your pup to learn good behaviour and how to socialise with other dogs, ensuring your pooch gets on the right path in life as soon as possible!

Dogs are naturally pack animals, so the majority are playful and happy socialising at a doggy daycare. Most dogs love making new furry friends, and younger pups can learn so much from the older, daycare veterans. However, dog daycare isn’t suitable for everyone, which is why dogs over the age of six months must take a temperament test before they are allowed to attend. Dogs with any aggressive tendencies will not be allowed in a daycare environment. 

At Suffolk Dog Town, we create a safe, loving environment for dogs to play and socialise. However, we recognise that all dogs have different personalities and energy levels. We have two large playrooms which we use to split the ‘pack’ up into groups with different energy levels. 

We don’t split the daily pack into ‘big’ dogs and ‘little’ dogs, like some daycare centres do, as it’s essential for dogs to mix with all sizes and breeds. If you keep all smaller breeds together they will not learn how to safely interact with the larger breeds. This has proven very useful when introducing and educating smaller breeds like chihuahuas and dachshunds. They soon learn that bigger, well-balanced dogs are not a threat and become less yappy and excitable around big dogs; something many owners of smaller breeds may struggle with!
