Welcome to The Hounds Hangout Dog Daycare!  The newest and first of its kind opening soon in New Plymouth!

An exciting indoor adventure playground for dogs...

Discipline and Structure

The Hounds Hangout Dog Daycare operates just like daycare for children.  Owners drop off their dogs in the morning and collect them in the evening.  We provide a structured schedule for your dog each day including exercise, social play, treats, cuddles, relax time and more play!

At The Hounds Hangout we have limited positions available.  Dogs are booked in on their set  days each week. Booking your dog on their set days of attendance will ensure your dogs spot at daycare as well as provide them with a sense of routine and familiarity through knowing their other playmates in attendance.  Booking regular days can also be hugely beneficial in helping normally shy or timid dogs gain social confidence. 

Dogs come to daycare to have fun but in order to maintain a safe and positive environment they all need to play by the rules we set for them.  The dogs quickly learn good behavior brings them positive rewards (play, treats, verbal and physical praise).  Dogs also quickly learn any negative or unwanted behaviors are unacceptable through the 'time-out' method (loss of play for 3-10 minutes).

By being consistent and fair with these techniques we aim to create a safe and positive experience every day they attend daycare.
