Dog’s Day is Montgomery County’s largest and only licensed outdoor/indoor daycare and boarding facility, featuring cage-less & kennel-free daycare and boarding on an idyllic, 25-acre farm in Gaithersburg, MD.
Dogs in our care have all the comforts of home and more! Around the clock, they have access to human interaction, comfortable places to rest, and multiple indoor AND outdoor fenced play areas, providing you with guilt-free peace of mind while you are away. At night, dogs choose where they want to sleep—whether it’s on a bed in our bedroom, on a couch, or on one of our comfy dog beds. The dogs are never alone on our family farm!
And for those of you who are within our taxi area (generally, Gaithersburg, Montgomery Village, Laytonsville, Damascus, and parts of Olney & Derwood), we offer round-trip, taxied “Trips to the Farm” on weekdays as an alternative to midday dog walks. The Farm Trips allow your dog to get out of the house and run with other friendly dogs in our fenced dog parks on the farm.

How Dog’s Day Farm Began
When I was in the 5th grade, my parents made the difficult decision to put our dog “Rusty” to sleep. As my brothers and I loved Rusty (despite his chronic misbehavior), they didn’t tell us that this was what they were doing. Instead, they told us, like many other parents had told their children in similar circumstances, that Rusty was “going to a big farm where he would be happy”! While I was still heartbroken, the thought of Rusty running freely on a great big farm made me feel better. This always stuck with me. I’ve thought for years that offering a service for dogs to experience the expanse & freedom of a country farm would not only be well-received, but would be a much-needed healthy reprieve for the otherwise cooped-up suburban dog.
Well, here we are years later and we now have just what the Vet ordered: Dog’s Day Farm!
