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 $102!
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).
A daycare worth barking about!
From playtime to cozy naps, Kip provides a stimulating and nurturing environment, ensuring your dogs enjoy their day to the fullest.
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.

I carnt believe the confidence in Penny my heeler pup has gained after only a couple of visits , its a credit to all the staff especially the way they handled and interacted with my dog.They even sent videos so I could see how well she was doing and enjoying herself. Big thanks to Kip Thomastown.
Olly spent 11 days at Kip Mornington in Pearcedale and although excited to see us he even tried to go back in before we left! He looks like he’s had a ball with all the other dogs, smiling the whole way home. The daily email updates were great for peace of mind. We looked forward to receiving our daily emails to see him and who he was playing with. He crashed when he got home. We’ll be back 🐶 ❤️
Thank you for making Koda (5 month old KC Cav) 1st day 1/2 as smooth as possible. He came home exhausted. I appreciate you undertaking his apprehension. Amazing team of professionals that truly care.
