Happy Customers

Fantastic and friendly with long opening hours - the doggo never wants to leave and comes home happily exhausted.

My dog Ava has been coming here since she was a puppy. She just loves it, she never likes to go home after a day playing with her doggo friends. Staff have always been helpful and accommodating. The 6 week puppy class was also very good and provided many helpful tips and tricks.

We have been going to Kip for nearly 2 years now and we love it. The staff are amazing and love and treat our boys as if they were their own. We couldn’t be happier with the care we receive, and we feel like we are part of the Kip family, not just another customer.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does a Kip Membership Cost?

At Kip, we lay all our cards on the table. So, when you sign up for a membership, we’ll provide you with an upfront and inclusive quote. We’ll also let you know of any additional daycare fees and current discounts we might have.

Our prices are not fixed and can be altered at our discretion. We’ll inform you 14 days prior in case you want to cancel your membership, with no penalty.

When you join us at Kip Doggy day care Hobart, we’ll throw in a free daycare day for you to use whenever you wish! We charge for the upcoming week of daycare on a Saturday, and payments are automatically withdrawn for any other services you utilise. 

At Kip, we want your dog to blossom. Our trial days are great for making new friends and for developing your pup’s social skills. We never want our new dogs to feel overwhelmed, unsafe, or anxious, so we hand select a group from our current dogs we believe will be best suited to your pup’s paw-sonality. We understand that our newest pooches might need a few sessions to come out of their shell, so we encourage return visits so that they can get to know the whole gang and warm up to life at Kip Dog Day Care Hobart.

Our team of expert dog carers will watch over your pup at all times to monitor for aggression or any anti-social behaviours. They’ll be there to put a stop to anything immediately, in the unlikely event that play turns ugly.

The safety of our pooches is the top priority at Kip Doggy Day Care Hobart. Our dogs are fully vaccinated, and our facilities are kept to the highest standard, clean, and disinfected to prevent germs. The floors are non-slip and non-absorbent to prevent accidents.

We know that your dog feels the heat as much as we humans do, especially in the hotter months, so you can rest assured knowing that your dog is playing and exercising in the comfort of air conditioning.

Absolutely! Kip Doggy day care in Hobart offers state-of-the-art facilities and a passionate team of staff. Don’t believe us? Book in for a viewing session!
