Day Care

Trusted, established dog day care South Auckland for your best mates. Their place for fun and socialising.

Looking for doggy day care while you’re at work so your dog can be exercised, socialised and looked after? Located in South Auckland’s rural Ardmore, Auckland Kennel & Cattery caters for dogs of all ages and sizes.

Day Stay & Play

Our daycare runs from 7am – 6pm weekdays. We offer large grassed areas and a pool for your dog to socialise and play with other dogs of similar size and temperament in a controlled environment.

The dogs have a rest during the middle of the day in their own individual kennel and run. It has a bed and indoor-outdoor access so your dog can choose to rest up on their bed or lie in the sun and sunbathe to re-energise for the afternoon session. Then it’s home time.

Assessment Day

We ask all new customers for daycare to bring their dog in for an initial assessment day so that we can determine if it’s the right environment for your dog. This allows us to observe your dogs unique personality and helps us decide which play group your dog is best suited to so they feel safe and happy. During our supervised and closely monitored exercise session, we will observe interactions, behaviours and energy levels which helps us determine suitability and playgroups.

Both large and smaller dogs can enjoy their own space.

We’re your best mate’s second best mate. We’re here to see your dog is kept happy with some good safe fun in our grassed areas where they can interact with similar sized and like-minded dogs.

During exercise and play time, our visiting dogs are grouped according to size, age and temperament to make sure our smaller dogs don’t feel anxious being with larger dogs. Small dogs within a similar age, nature, size and breed have their own purpose-built kennel building and exercise yard.

With regular walks, enrichment activities and socialisation your dog will be stimulated mentally and physically when you can’t be there to do it. We strive to create an environment where your dog can have as much fun as possible!
