What’s Different About Poochie’s?

Come on in and see for yourself, we would love to give you a tour and show you what a loving happy environment Poochie's is. Call Us Today! (941) 312-4969

3000 sq.ft. of Indoor Space

Indoor play space completely open, bright, cheerful, fun and safe environment for all dogs. Stop by and this is the happiest dog day care Sarasota has to offer.

3000 sq.ft. of Outdoor Space

Outdoor area that is fully fenced for safety and equipped with toys, pools, shaded area, canvas loungers, as well as beginner agility equipment to keep your beloved pet happy and busy. Oh and let’s not forget about three human dog day care playmates.

Cage Free Environment

Poochie’s believes in a totally cage free environment because we have a fun, pet-CPR certified professional staff to constantly play with and supervise your pampered pup. Your pooch is free to roam, play inside or outside and of course take an occasional snooze.

State of the Art Grooming

Our dog grooming department has state of the art equipment with which to beautify your canine companion, including hydro therapy massage baths for every dog. This is especially beneficial for older dogs with arthritis and joint problems.


Restraint Free Grooming

We believe that dog grooming should be a positive, anxiety free experience for every dog. Using only love and compassion we are able to groom without the use of scary restraints, muzzles or force. It may take us a bit longer but the result will be a beautiful, happy and calming experience for all concerned.

Post Grooming Playtime

After your pooch is done being perfectly groomed by one of our calm and compassionate groomers, they will join our other day care dogs for indoor/outdoor play. Our outdoor play area is covered in doggy astroturf so that your dog will go home cleaner then when they came in.

3 Large Fun Filled Rooms

We have 3 fun-filled rooms for small, medium and large dogs. All rooms are full of toys, bones and beds for each pooch. All rooms are set up to cater to all types of dogs and their unique personalities. We feel that’s its important for your pooch to be able to play with other dogs freely, wander about or have the space to take some time for themselves.

Our Pet Taxi

If you have difficulty getting your dog to Poochies, we will come to and get your dog with our pet taxi. Whether for Sarasota dog day care or Sarasota dog grooming, for a flat fee of just $20.00 per round trip, we can pick up and deliver your pooch at your convenience.



Our Services

Our mission is to provide all services with the most loving, caring, patience and compassion as possible. We invite you to come in and take a tour to see for yourself.

Day Care

Doggy Day/Play Care is a unique and expanding business designed for dog owners who are at work all day, have social engagements and/or errands during the day – and is different than a traditional pet sitter. Because dogs have no sense of time, they have no idea when you will return home.

Regular pet grooming is essential to your dog’s health. When fur is allowed to get dirty and matted it increases your dog’s chances of flea and tick infections, irritated skin from matting, hot spots from constantly trying to scratch that itch and an increase in skin allergies due to uncleanliness.

Pet Taxi

Poochie’s Pet taxi can make your life so much easier! Rather than fighting morning and afternoon traffic, Poochie’s will pick up your Pooch whether for grooming or doggy day/play care. Our pet taxi is equipped with secure cages so that no harm can come to your beloved pet during transportation.

I have used all of Poochie’s services and couldn’t be happier! I have a 2 year old portuguese water dog that can be a little rambuctious. Poochie’s daycare is a great place for her to use up some of that playful energy, and learn how to socialize with other dogs. Poochie’s groomers take great care in listening to what you want, and do a great job. Poochie’s boarding is the best, dogs spend the night at one of the staff’s home and plays all day at daycare. NO CAGES! Every time I picked up my four legged family member from Poochie’s, I know she is happy, tired and well taken care of. I highly recommend Poochie’s Pampered Pups!

Poochie’s is the best – a true all-service facility! We have a Golden Retriever with a seizure disorder and they make sure he gets his meds. Just as important, Buckley runs to the door to get in each time we’ve brought him there. The grooming is exceptional as well! We’ve consulted with their dog trainer Janine and she’s very helpful in fine tuning our work with this 99 pound rescue! My favorite feature is that when we have to be out of town he simply gets to go to day care during the day and then home to a loving home and no cage at night. In fact, he usually also gets a fenced back yard to play in, something we don’t have. Buckley is well taken care of and we are relaxed and happy knowing he is. Oh, and the really great staff are really nice to us humans, too. 🙂

First Day at Poochie’s!

To come in for Daycare, Grooming or Boarding…

To get started with us we will need a copy of your pup’s vaccination records. We require Rabies, Distemper and Bordetella. Your vet can fax us at 941-312-4965 or email us Also if you have a copy you can just bring it in. **If you are coming in for Free Puppy Monday, the only required shots are the second round of puppy shots.

Also we will need our New Customer Form filled out which is available in the upper right hand corner or when you come in.

Lastly we do a quick Temperament Test, where we put your pup in a large pen and then slowly introduce other pups their size and temperament and watch their body language. Since we are cage free we need to see that everyone can get along. Temperament Tests are done Monday – Saturday 11am-3pm. If you need a different time please call us to set up a different time.
