Dog’s Day Pet Care has Montgomery County’s only licensed outdoor doggy daycare, featuring taxied trips to our private, fenced dog-park located in Gaithersburg, MD.

We pick-up your dog from your home, take him to our private farm to run and play for an hour.  Then we bring him/her back home!  You don’t even need to be home!

Our clients love this option because it is an affordable way to ensure that your dog gets that much-needed exercise and socialization in an open, country-setting of a real farm.  And you don’t need to do a thing– we’ll taxi!**    This is affordable doggy daycare in a natural setting, as opposed to the concrete warehouse daycare businesses (or boarding kennels)!

 

One-Hour Trip to the Farm- from $25**
– FREE** round-trip home pickup to our private farm!
– 1-hour of daycare play and adventure with a select group of friendly dogs
– Your dog is guaranteed to be tired and content!

**Free taxi for residents within 4 miles of Dog’s Day, for 1-hour trips– $2/mile beyond 4 miles.

**Larger dogs would incur an additional cost.

How trips to the 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 cooped-up suburban dog. 

Well, here we are years later and we now have just what the DVM ordered: a round-trip, home pick-up taxi for your pup to a farm for playtime with other friendly dogs!
