Has your dog been itching to try daycare?

You need to attend a First Day Trial before coming more regularly

We want to ensure your pup gets started on the right paw when they join the Kip family. That’s why all dogs do a first-day trial to see whether the daycare environment suits them. On this first day trial, we encourage you to arrive before 9:00am to give your dog the best chance of success. We will give you an update throughout the day, and at pick-up, you will receive a report card and the team will discuss a recommended attendance plan. You will also need to be available for an earlier pick-up should our staff deem that daycare is not suitable for your dog.

Grab a 3-Day Intro Pack for only $26/day (1 month expiry) - saving $126!

To attend daycare your dog will need to be vaccinated (to C5 or above) and desexed if over 12 months. Dogs can attend their First Day Trial 10 days after their second vaccination (C5 or equivalent).

Experienced Staff, Safe Space, Structured Routine, and Fun Activities

is what makes Kip doggy daycare different!

Not every doggy daycare is built equal! At Kip, our daycare model is built off decades of doggy daycare learnings and experience. We put your dog first and ensure both you and your pooch are able to get the most out of our enriching daycare environment.

After the First Day Trial, your dog will reap the benefits of the structured daily routines and our focus on developing fundamental skills and manners (recall, gate manners, group sits) that makes Kip unique. To top things off, you’ll receive regular photo and video updates of your dog’s daycare experience, receive honest feedback and see the benefits daycare provides.

How We Do Things

Safe & Fun

We have lots of fun together, but balance is key, which is why we tailor our services to meet your pet’s needs.

Passionate Team

What are the requirements to attend?

Dogs can attend doggy daycare 10 days after their second vaccine (C5 or equivalent)

• Dogs must be de-sexed by 12 months

• Pet parents must present an up-to-date C5 vaccination certificate

Once these are completed, you’re all set to join the pack!

How does a daycare day work?

A Kip day starts bright and early at 7am, giving you plenty of time to drop off your furry friend on the way to work. Your dog’s day will be divided into two play sessions, morning and afternoon, and is broken up with quiet time in between to relax and recharge. This balance ensures that every dog has a great time without being overwhelmed and goes home looking forward to their next visit.

How will my dog be grouped?

Groups are generally based on size, personality and play style so that your pup can enjoy their time with their BFFs (best furry friends!). Our animal handlers will also switch around groups as needed so that your dog gets the best out of every stay.

How safe is Kip Alexandria?

Safety is our number one priority. All dogs in our care are fully vaccinated and have passed their trial day before joining. Our floors are also non-slip and water-resistant, and our fences dig-proof.

Why do you charge a late cancellation fee?

The late cancellation charge allows us to reallocate your reservation to another pup if you cannot attend your session. This late cancellation/no-show charge applies to customers who fail to cancel a daycare visit by 5pm the day prior to the reservation.

Can you pick up my dog?

Absolutely! Our transport service will pick up your dog bright and early between 6-9am and drop them off between 3-6pm. Please note that someone needs to be home to facilitate the transport. Door-to-door transport is currently available on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Areas serviced: Darlinghurst, Darling Point, Elizabeth Bay, Paddington, Potts Point, Rushcutters Bay, Surry Hills, and surrounding suburbs! Contact us at [email protected] for more details.
