Same great team, same fantastic services.
Taking over from the well-loved, established Hop & Scotch dog daycare Blackburn, Kip Happy Stays are reopening with refreshed facilities.
Providing Blackburn and inner-city locals with a doggy daycare facility they can trust, Kip Happy Stays are continuing to let the good times roll. With our exceptional Blackburn team, you can be confident that your dog is in a secure environment with a group of friendly playmates.
At Kip, our animal-loving crew of carers are passionate about keeping your canine friend happy, safe, and active. When you want your dog to remain sociable and engaged during busy periods, Kip Dog Day Care Blackburn is the place to be.
Endless cuddles, love, and attention is the Kip guarantee for Blackburn puppers of all breeds, shapes, and sizes.
Your four-legged friend will experience a custom-built, world-class environment in the heart of Blackburn, full of exciting activities and like-minded friends.
Kip Happy Stays has a wonderful team of experienced, specialist staff that know exactly how to keep the day engaging and fulfilling for pups. Whether this means switching up the day between rest and play or knowing exactly when a dog needs a bit more attention, our staff are simply the best in Blackburn. With us, you can be sure that your canine friend will have an amazing day – by the time they get home they’ll be all tuckered out and ready for a kip!
Are you busy working long hours or just too tired to take your dog for a walk around Blackburn Lake? No need to worry – Kip Dog Daycare Blackburn has been created by our fantastic staff to feel like a home away from home for your pup. Your pup can explore our range of entertaining play stations or choose to take a step back and relax within our fully air-conditioned facility.
With the many pressures of modern life, it can be hard to provide your dog with the level of exercise and mental stimulation they need on a day-to-day basis. Physical and mental stimulation is just as important for dogs as it is for us humans!
At Kip Doggy Daycare, your pup will have plenty of time to burn energy by playing with other pet pals; the constant wrestling and zooming around that they love offers them the outlet they crave. Moreover, socialisation with other dogs is crucial, especially in their formative years, in order to develop friendly behaviours and a sense of comfortability in the presence of other pups. Dog Daycare will help prevent future anti-social behaviours and alleviate any feelings of loneliness or anxiety that your dog may experience.
Before your dog can join the Kip family, we ask that they complete a trial day with us so that we can make sure they’re a good fit for the communal environment and atmosphere.
All treasured members of our Blackburn family have passed this assessment for the benefit of everybody’s health and safety.Book your trial
Our trial days are typically held on quieter days so that your four-legged friend can have a gentle introduction to all the new sights and smells around the place and reduce any overwhelming feelings of anxiety.
These trial days also help us evaluate their personality and way of interacting with the other dogs. We’ll match your dog with a small group of regulars who we know play well to assess how your dog settles in. Once they’ve had a chance to mingle with our best-behaved members, we’ll introduce them to more members of the family for further assessment.
• Dogs must have had their final vaccine 10 days before attending
• Dogs must be de-sexed by 12 months
• Pet parents must present an up-to-date C5 vaccination certificate
• Pet parents must have completed the Kip Enrolment Form
Once these are completed, you're all set to join the pack!
That’s why we’ve introduced a weekly Kip Membership!
Your weekly membership includes one free day and unlimited discounts on additional days. You’ll receive an additional 10% off on all retail, washes, and transport when applicable.
What’s more is, a Kip membership is for the whole family – meaning just one single membership gives you access to benefits for all of your pups who attend our daycare!
Kip Blackburn's daycare membership is flexible, which means that after the initial period of three weeks you can cancel at any time, so you don’t need to pay if you go away.
Kip Happy Stays Blackburn is of the philosophy that all dogs should love coming to our daycare, rather than just tolerating it. While other daycares have opposing views on accepting dogs, we believe this is the safest and strongest method as it ensures the quality of our centre and keeps everyone happy. Because of this, on our trial days, we ask that you or a trusted friend be available at short notice if we need you to come back and pick up your dog.
We know that every pup is unique, with their own way of doing things and interacting, meaning that some may take a while to settle in or overcome shyness. This is why we often recommend that your dog comes back for a second evaluation so as to not unfairly judge. By doing this, we maintain the quality of our centre and keep all members of the dog-loving Blackburn community happy and safe – our number one priority.
Our Australian cattle dog Griff loves it at Kip. The team are great and always make sure to take a bunch of happy snaps of the pups having fun. We always know that Griff will come home exhausted from all of the fun activities the team have planned. Thanks again for taking such great care of our pup!
Harley has the best time at daycare! Thursdays are his days at daycare and he knows - gets uber excited to get out of the car and go play with his friends. The team at Blackburn are really friendly too, and the mid-day photo updates are just as good!
The best of the best. The staff are very friendly to humans, and even more attentive to dogs. My girl loves her visits to Kip and we love that it’s helped her socialise with other dogs.
Such a lovely bunch of people who honestly care about all of the dogs. Chewie loves the staff so much he doesn't even say goodbye when we drop him off!! Also, the grooms are very well done, and we always receive compliments, and questions on who does the grooming :)
At Kip, safety is our absolute number one priority. We understand how stressful it can be to entrust others with the care of your best friend, which is why we go to great lengths to make sure our facility is as safe, clean, and hygienic as possible.
Our floors are non-slip and water-resistant, free from germs and odours to prevent any injury or sickness. We also ensure that every dog at Kip Doggy Daycare Blackburn is fully vaccinated and has passed a trial day before joining the family.
Our play yards are not only fully air-conditioned to keep your dog comfortable at all times, but they are also separated by 1.8m high fences, with two gates between every dog and the exit at all times. Food and water are also available at all times throughout the day.
Our team of carers have years of experience in monitoring groups of pups from all different types of backgrounds and are proficient in regulating safety and keeping the vibe playful at all times.
A Kip day starts bright and early at 7 am to give you plenty of time to drop off your treasured friend on your morning commute to work.
Once groups have been organised, based on size, personality and how they play, your little (or big) friend will enjoy their time with other like-minded pals under the guidance of our animal-loving staff who are well-versed in caring for all kinds of dogs.
Your doggo’s day will be divided into two play sessions: morning and afternoon, with quiet time in between to relax and recharge. This balance ensures that every dog has a great time and heads home looking forward to the next visit. What’s more is, tasty treats are also on offer for dogs who show great behaviour throughout the day!
Want in on the fun? No need to worry – we’ve got you covered. We share the best Kip moments via our customer portal and social media pages every day, so make sure you stay in the loop!
