At Kip Doggy Day Care Hobart, we like to get started bright and early at 7:30 am. This means you can drop off your pet on your commute to work, with no fuss.
We break our day up into morning and afternoon play sessions and leave time in between for your pup to get a good rest. All pets have access to water always, and our team of expert carers are there to provide lots of pats and tasty treats!
Your dog will play amongst a selected group of similar paw-sonalities. We like to group them by age, size, breed, nature, and energy levels. By carefully crafting our playgroups, we can prevent arguments and ensure everyone hits it off!
Before we sign your pup up for a membership, we require you to complete a trial day with us at Kip Doggy day care Hobart.
Our trial days give your dog a smoother transition into life at Kip. We never want to overwhelm or spark anxiety in our latest furry additions, so we are all about introductions during your dog’s first day. We let each pup settle in and acclimatise to the new sounds, smells, and surroundings and familiarise them with our regulars gradually.
Our trial days encourage exercise and playfulness in a controlled environment. We want to measure your dog’s etiquette and social skills to see how they’ll fit in with life at Kip. At the end of the day, we’ll walk you through your pup’s report card and recommend how often they visit us.
Our experienced and qualified trainers will support you to raise a happy, confident & obedient dog. We offer a range of fun and interactive classes that cater to a range of dog and owner needs.
- Puppy Class - for ages 6 – 20 week puppies
- Basic Obedience Class - for dogs aged 21 weeks and over
- Recall and loose lead walking - for anyone who wants a calmer dog on lead who comes back when called
- Advanced training - for people and dogs that have attended our Puppy or Basic Obedience classes and want to take their skills to the next level

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.
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 sign up to a membership at Kip Hobart, you get a weekly day of daycare and discounts on other services! 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.
