West Hindmarsh's Best Doggy Day Care

West Hindmarsh's Best Doggy Day Care

Kip West Hindmarsh (aka Allenby Gardens) Dog Daycare is Adelaide’s newest doggy daycare, opening on April 11.

We live and breathe all things canine. We’ve created the safest and happiest environment for dogs, big and small, of all different shapes, breeds, and sizes.

We know how hard it can be to leave your pup in the care of a stranger, but you can have peace of mind knowing your furry friend is in the safest hands and will receive the highest quality of care with Kip. They’ll take part in lots of exciting activities that give your pooch the mental stimulation and the exercise they need, and when it’s time for pickup, your dog will be satisfied and pooped from a full day of play, ready for a long kip back at home.

A Day in the Life at Kip

At Kip Doggy Day Care in West Hindmarsh, we can’t wait to see your furry friends. We throw open our doors at 7 am, so you can drop off your pet bright and early on the way to work.

We factor a siesta in between our morning and afternoon play sessions so that your pup can rest up for the afternoon’s festivities. Our daycare members have access to water at all times, and our team of expert carers will reward good behaviour with lots of tasty treats throughout the day!

We’ll make sure to place your dog into a group of similar paw-sonalities, going by size, age, and breed. Matchmaking our dogs ensure there are no arguments and that everyone gets along like a house on fire!

Are you missing your four-legged friend? You can stay up to date throughout the day. Check-in on our customer portal or follow our Instagram page to get your daily dose of doggie shenanigans!

Trial Days At Kip

Before your pup can join us on our play dates, we like to give our newest members the oppawtunity to complete a trial day with us at Kip. It gives us a good indication of how your furry friend reacts to a new environment and their fellow furry peers. Our trial days also allows your dog a smooth transition into life at Kip.

The last thing we want to do is overwhelm our newest members, so we are all about introductions during your pup's trial. We want to give them the chance to settle in. Once they have acclimatised to the new smells, sounds, and surroundings, we'll familiarise them with our other members of the Kip West Hindmarsh Dog Daycare.

We'll be closely watching your dog to assess their social skills, energy levels, and play style and we’ll run you through our assessment at the end of the day. We want our dogs to LOVE coming to Kip's Australian puppy day care, so our trial days are essential to getting to know our newest members.

We ask that you remain available and contactable on the off chance that your dog needs an emergency pick-up.

Happy Customers

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.

From the moment we stepped inside the staff really put our minds at ease. Instead of leaving her to fend for herself amongst a bunch of other dogs, they introduced her slowly to the new environment. They even provided a report card at the end of her first day! We’ve been back again since and our puppy enjoyed herself. The “pup-dates” throughout the day really help assure us that she’s having a good time. We’ll definitely be back regularly!

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.
