At Kip Dog Daycare Marrickville, we’re all about the good times, providing Marrickville and inner-west locals with a doggy daycare facility they can trust. A home for your little (or big) four-legged friend to learn new skills, burn energy, and relax with other pet pals under the care of our amazing, animal-loving staff.
Located in the heart of Marrickville, our custom-built, world-class facility acts as a home away from home for your pup. Welcoming all dogs of different shapes and sizes, Kip Marrickville is the safest, happiest place where the inner-west locals can take their dog for the day.
As the happiest doggy daycare in the inner-west, endless cuddles, care, and attention are a Kip guarantee. We’re paw-sionate about creating the perfect environment for your dog to remain sociable, active, and carefree all year long.
If you’re busy working long hours or are simply too tired to take your dog out for an evening expedition around Marrickville Park after a hard day at work, Kip dog day care Marrickville has got you covered. Your dog will receive the physical and mental stimulation they crave with us, as our experienced staff know exactly how to balance the day and keep everyone inside engaged.
Kip dog daycare Marrickville gives your pup the opportunity to develop friendly behaviours and a sense of comfort in the company of other dogs, something that is especially important in younger dogs’ formative years. Our experienced Kip crew are the experts in managing groups of pups and know exactly how to make the day a balanced, fun, and beneficial experience.
Before your pup can join the treasured Kip family, we ask that they complete a trial day with us so as to preserve our communal environment and atmosphere and maintain our high level of safety. All current members of Kip dog daycare Marrickville have passed this assessment.
Trial days will be held on our quieter days so that your pup can have a safe, comfortable introduction to our environment. On trial days, we’ll match up your dog with a group of regulars who play well so that we can assess their behaviour and personality around the other dogs. Once they’ve had the initial chance to mingle, we’ll introduce them to more dogs.
• Dogs can attend 10 days after their second vaccination (so long as it is a C5 equivalent) - ask us if you have any questions on this
• Dogs must be de-sexed by twelve months
• Pet parents must present an up-to-date C5 vaccination certificate
• Pet parents must have completed the onboarding details
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 Marrickville'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.
Our very active and excitable 8 month old Dalmatian has been coming here the past few months. They have worked with him as hard as we have with certain low risk behaviours and it's amazing the change we have all seen in him! Plus, he loves coming here and playing with his friends, both big and small! He pulls my arm off trying to get in the door! Georgia and Ally and the team have been brilliant. I love the Instagram and email updates too!
I honestly wouldn't send my dog anywhere else! Play and rest are structured and appropriately supervised, the dogs literally have the best time with each other, the environment and the staff and no one comes back exhausted nor do they come back with random injuries. I've used a few daycares and they've each let me down after the first visit - but Kip Alexandria has me looking forward to Honey's next visit :) Amazing job from Georgia and the crew!
We took our 8 month old pup to Kip for his trial day and we couldn't be happier. The staff were wonderful and sent us a video, and made sure to keep us updated throughout his visit. It was great to see him playing so happily with his new friends. He absolutely loved his morning at Kip. We will definitely be back.
I can’t speak highly enough of this dog daycare. Our pup Olly just loves spending time here. The ladies take such good care of him and we can tell they treat all the pups like their own. Olly adores the staff just as much as he loves playing all day with the other pups. It has been so worthwhile for us, and has really helped Olly learn to play and respond calmly to other dogs. We wouldn’t take him anywhere else!
Our dog Gethin (Labrador cross) loves it! Staff are always friendly and he is always excited when we pull up to drop him off! Always comes home tired after he's had a busy day playing.
10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere for their best mate. We have been sending our Fergus to doggy daycare for over a year now and he is always treated with the utmost care and respect and treated like royalty. Plenty of playtime and socialising with the other pups and staff. Even the odd daytime photo and update of what he's been up to. He always looks forward to Daycare Day.
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.
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. Groups will be organised based on size, personality, and playstyle so that your pup can enjoy their time with other like-minded dogs under the care of our animal-crazed Kip crew, who are experienced in caring for all kinds of dogs.
What’s more is, tasty treats are also on offer for dogs who show excellent behaviour throughout the day! Happy days and happy stays for all Marrickville dogs!
At Kip, safety is our number one priority. We go to great lengths to ensure our facilities are as hygienic, clean and accident-proof as possible.
Our floors are non-slip and water-resistant, free from germs and odours to prevent any injury or sickness. Every Kip Marrickville dog is also fully vaccinated and has passed a trial day before joining.
Our play yards are not only well-insulated 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 keeping the vibe fun and safe at all times. They’re the best in the business.
Absolutely! We understand how hard it can be to leave your best friend in the hands of someone else, which is why we encourage inspections to put your mind at ease. Contact a member of our team to set up a viewing time during our opening hours. All are welcome!
We know that some dogs can be quite shy or take a while to settle in, which is why we often ask that your dog comes back for a trial and then a second visit so that we don’t unfairly judge your pup. We do this to ensure the quality of our centre and keep all members of our Marrickville community happy and safe. While other daycare facilities may have opposing views on accepting new dogs, we believe that dog daycare should be a comfortable space that our dogs love coming to, rather than just tolerating it, which is why we first assess their behaviour.
On trial days, we’ll need you or a friend to be available on short notice if we need you to come pick them up.
A Kip membership makes doggy daycare life as easy and stress-free as possible for you. A weekly membership includes one free day per week and unlimited discounts on additional days. You’ll also receive an extra 10% off on all retail, training, washes, and transport where applicable.
