Here at Shine Canine we give your dogs the freedom to explore the outdoors in our fully fenced purpose built facilities. Your dogs can run, play, climb, sniff and forage in our spacious outdoor areas while socialising with a variety of other friendly dogs, and they all get a rest period to take a nap or just chill for a bit too.
We appreciate that not all dogs are created equal, some just want to get out there and play with everyone straight away, some find just one dog sniffing their bum overwhelming! Every new dog that arrives gets the time to check things out at their own pace before we slowly introduce our existing daycare dogs to them one at a time, depending on how they cope with this. Some may want to get straight to play and some may take several weeks, and that is ok too!
We have several seperate areas, and we also have the barn for little and older dogs, or more quiet/shy dogs and puppies if they need time to settle in or quiet time away from the main doggy daycare areas. The barn has a lounge area inside it and it also has its own outdoor area, away from the other outdoor areas.
We invite you to make an appointment to come and view and/or bring your dog to visit for a FREE DAYCARE TRIAL, provided that they are well socialised (with dogs and people), registered (with council), fully vaccinated (including kennel cough) wormed and de-flead, and not a barker/noisy dog.
We also offer overnight stays – and a bonus about bringing your dog to doggy daycare is that if and when you need to head away for a night (or longer), your dog already knows our place as it’s home away from home, and they are excited to arrive and stay and play with their friends. You can head away and do what you need to do and relax knowing your dog is safely cared for and entertained in a place that they are familiar and comfortable with.
While we are open 7 days a week, our regular doggy daycare is open Tuesday through to Friday.
