Bridgend Dog Day Care
Cardiff Dog Day Care
Our aim is to ensure that your dogs have the time of their lives whilst in our care. The philosophy we follow is simple: love, care, structure and plenty of exercise for your dog…, just as you do. We want you to feel happy that your beloved pets will be looked after with 5 star treatment, this way you can feel stress-free by being in the knowledge that your dogs will return to you blissfully happy and tired out from their day of play.
Our day care section includes a 1500 square feet indoor play area with plenty of toys, jumps, cosy sleeping areas and separate areas for small, young or shy dogs. We have installed special cushion flooring that is non- porous, hygienic and soft enough for delicate joints. Our facility also includes an outdoor play area and a specific place outside where we encourage your dogs to toilet. Regular toilet breaks will be factored into the day so that any ‘accidents’ inside are kept to a minimum.
“My very energetic, mischievous beagle absolutely loved doggy day care… so much so that I don’t think he wanted to come home. Staff and venue are great.”Becky - Aberdare
During their stay with us your dog will be off lead with total freedom of movement: We do not crate any dog; we may place them in one our big separate pens if it’s strictly necessary. Most of the time this applies to young puppies (they need lots of sleep to grow up!) or any dog having a meal on the premises. Our “pens” are big, spacious separated areas (bigger than a standard double room) provided with fresh drinking water, a doggy bed and blankets. Any pen time gets closely supervised to ensure your dog is comfortable.
PLEASE NOTE: All dogs are assessed for their suitability to the day care environment before being allocated a place: We cannot book your dog without going through this assessment.
“Brilliant! Our two loved their first afternoon of doggy day care. Staff are lovely and helpful.”Vicky, Cardiff

The Day Care Routine
If you’re familiar with basic dog psychology, then you’re probably aware that routine is essential to keep a healthy and balanced dog. At Action Petz we are fully committed to providing our Day Care boys and girls with a healthy and stimulating routine.
When you drop off your dogs with us they get taken immediately to the outdoor area to use the toilet; there’s usually a great deal of excitement and energy so we stay with them outside for about an hour until they have “relieved” themselves, greeted each other and had a good run.
During this time more games, training and socialisation happens. We will be throwing balls, running around and exchanging treats for tricks. Any new dog will be getting individual attention and lots of reassuring cuddles. If it’s sunny we let the pooches stay outside to enjoy the sunshine and paddle the pool.
Midday and early afternoon:
Time to eat and rest! By this time most of the dogs will be tired and relaxed, most of them choose to lie down on the sofa or on the doggy beds. A few of them will be put into our separate areas in order to get their meal and puppies will be put to bed to sleep for at least an hour. This is a very special time because most of our pooches get lots of individual attention and quality time with us.
By late afternoon we’re all pretty tired. Some high energy dogs will be let into the main park to play and have a go at the agility area to let off some steam before going home, young pups may want to have a last play with their friends and other pooches just choose to chill out.
This is another of our favourite moments. We love to see the dogs’ reactions after not seeing their owners for a few hours; there’s lots of waggy tails, excited barks and plenty of kisses. One of us will have a chat with you to let you know how the day went and make you aware of any issues or observations.
