Here’s How to Get Started with Doggy Daycare 

All of our daycare dogs start out with a "temperament test" before becoming a regular at our Tucson locations. Participation in daycare is contingent on passing a temperament test. There is a one-time charge of $32 for a temperament test evaluation.

What is a Temperament Test, and Why is it Required for Dog Daycare? 

The temperament test is a great way to see if your furball is ready for the daycare environment. At Central Pet, our doggy guests' safety is a top priority. While we love and accept all breeds and personalities, not every dog is comfortable with an off-leash, open-play environment. 

During a temperament test, our trained team member will spend 20-30 minutes with your pup while you watch from one of our cameras. During this time, we'll observe your pup to see how he or she interacts with the others in a smaller, controlled mini-play area.

At the end of the session, we'll come back to chat with you about how your dog seemed to respond to the other dogs and make a recommendation for daycare. There are options for Solo play that might be recommended for pups that are a little anti-social. The process is easy and makes sure all dogs are comfortable at Central Pet.

Doggy-Daycare-CameraPeace of Mind for Pet Parents 

We provide a clean, safe, and structured setting that allows your dog to run and play while maintaining basic commands and working on their social skills. They also get a ton of physical and mental stimulation, which makes for a healthier, happier pup. Our staff takes pride in what we do and wants you to rest easy knowing that your pet is well cared for when you drop them off with us.

Check In On Your Pup, Anytime! 

For even more peace of mind,  we have cameras installed throughout the daycare area. This allows you to peek in on your pup throughout the day while they are at daycare.Live Feed Cameras

Expect Happy Dog Days at Doggy Daycare 

Dogs who attend doggy daycare on a regular basis are just happier. They get to spend more time running around, playing with their furry friends and getting to burn off some of their natural energy. The physical and mental stimulation of being in a pack is something that all dogs inherently crave. They look forward to seeing their pack-mates, playing the games, getting the extra rush of dopamine, and coming home a happy, tired pup.

What Does Doggy Daycare Cost?

Doggy daycare sessions are setup using passes. You can choose a  few days a month all the way up to an unlimited plan. With passes there's no need for an advance reservation. Plus you can save on retail, grooming and boarding services. 

In addition to our standard doggy daycare, we offer add-on services to cater to the individual needs of our guests. While you're busy at work or running errands and your dog is at daycare, send them to get groomed or get them some extra play or cuddle time with our staff. There are several add-ons that can make your special friend's day even better.

Central Pet's Intro to Daycare Class

This class allows for more personalized socialization for pets that are not quite ready to integrate into our large daycare group. The Socialization Course helps dogs with anxiety-based behaviors so they can thrive in our Daycare Program. The goal of this class is to slowly introduce your dog to our groups doing it progressively and safely.

For a dog to be eligible for our Socialization 101: Intro to Daycare class, they must meet one or more of the pre-requisites:

  • The dog is under 6 months old
  • The dog was deemed eligible for a re-test
  • The dog was not deemed aggressive towards humans or dogs
  • The dog is over 6 months of age and is altered per our Daycare Program policy.

This course is taught by one of our Daycare professionals and will be a minimum of 4 weeks long, taking place 2-3x per week. Classes are held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays only — drop off is at 10 am, and pick up is at 3 pm.
