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...

The Hounds Hangout is Taranakis first professional Doggy Daycare offering  positive, fun filled days for your best friend to play, exercise and socialise with other doggy pals while the rest of the family are busy or at work and school!

With friendly trained and experienced staff we provide personal human care and constant supervision, space to run and play with plenty of other awesome K9 company, exciting toys and games and of course those quiet comfy spots for a bit of R+R.

The Hounds Hangout is dedicated to ensuring your dog loves their time with us and is returned to you at the end of each day happy, tired and completely fulfilled giving you peace of mind and a relaxed evening!

First Day

We ask that new dogs and owners arrive as early as possible the first few days your dog attends daycare.  This is to ensure the newbie is one of the first dogs here so he/she is able to gradually and comfortably ease in with the other playmates.  The Hounds Hangout staff will help your dog into their first few days at daycare.  We are happy to keep you updated with photos, texts, emails throughout the day if you require.

What you may find when your dog gets home from daycare...

Content and Happy... 

Your dog has spent hours of fun playing, socialising, exercising, wrestling and relaxing with their other doggy pals.  These can be some of the key elements to a content and fulfilled dog.  

Tired and Full-filled...

Through all the wonderful learning, play, mental and physical stimulation, your dog will be worn out at the end of the day!  Great for owners that need a bit of 'me' time after work without feeling guilty!


At The Hounds Hangout clean fresh water is available at all times.  Because of all the excitement, fun and through fear of 'missing out' some dogs will drink less during the day, please ensure you have water available for your dog when they arrive home. Some dogs will also be hungry & ready for their dinner, having worked up an appetite all day!

Sore Muscles...

Daycare is a great way for your dog to enjoy exercise through natural play but remember some dogs are not as fit as others.  Just like us, it can take a while for a dogs body to adjust.  Wheat packs are a great idea (not too hot and never leave the pack alone with your dog), or even a doggy massage/rub down from owners can be beneficial.
