The Dog House, Los Angeles' Original Dog Daycare

Dogs attending daycare must be social with people and dogs of all sizes. If you are uncertain of your dogs' social level, please consult a certified behaviorist or dog trainer to evaluate your dog before bringing him to ANY off-leash dog area. Please note that we will not be admitting any new Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, and most mixes thereof to daycare.

Please note: We offer a 30 minute grace period for pick-up until 7:30 p.m.!

Thank you for choosing The Dog House as your daycare provider

The Dog House opened in 1995 as Los Angeles’ first Dog Daycare facility. It has been under the current ownership since 2001. Our many years of experience will benefit your dog and help create the best possible experience.
There are many advantages to our approach to caregiving. Here are a few examples:
  • - Our staff studies, and is tested in dog play behavior and body language. There are many facets to dog interactions, and our extra knowledge helps encourage constructive play and appropriate behavior.
  • - The Dog House is small enough for close supervision, yet large enough to allow room to play. We do not have as many dogs as larger facilities, nor do we have to section off dogs in areas – they have the freedom to play, observe, or interact with us as they choose.
  • - Our layout provides many spots in which to rest, which is an important component of a constructive day. The ability to self regulate these play/rest cycles is much harder to accomplish in penned sections within larger facilities. Even the most playful dogs take a rest for a bit at a time! When we feel dogs need to take a break, we also have a centrally located quiet room for them to do so. Encouragement of rest such as these nap breaks helps contribute to healthy self-regulation of energy.
  • - The Dog House has a small outdoor patio, which includes a gravel area for potty. We do not take dogs off premises for potty breaks. We believe it is much safer for each dog this way.
  • - We are passionate about dogs! Our staff are true dog lovers, not just hired help. The Dog House is not part of a chain or large corporation. We provide hands on care and attention!
We look forward to being a part of your dog’s life. Thanks again for choosing The Dog House!
