Doggy daycares are a great option for pet owners who work long hours or have other commitments that keep them away from home during the day. By providing a safe and stimulating environment for their dogs, owners can ensure that their furry companions are happy, healthy, and well-cared for while they are away.

At The Ruff Barn, pups can enjoy a variety of activities and amenities, such as:

  • Playtime with other dogs in secure, supervised play areas

  • Exercise and walk to ensure they get the physical activity they need

  • Feeding and watering as needed throughout the day

  • Access to toys, play equipment, and comfortable resting areas for downtime

  • Supervised rest periods to prevent over-excitement or exhaustion

  • Basic grooming services such as brushing and bathing, at an additional cost

We are located South of the River in Leeming and cater to pups of all ages as soon as they have completed their puppy vaccinations (at least 12 weeks of age). All pups attending The Ruff Barn are required to be up-to-date with their C5 vaccinations. Owners must provide proof of C5 vaccinations from their vet.


A temperament trial is mandatory as each dog is unique and we need to consider if your pup has the right temperament for daycare. The safety of our pups and staff is the most important! You'll drop your pup off for an hour, we would monitor their body language and reactions to social interactions with other dogs. We want every visit to be a positive one and will update you during their trial as to how they're going.
