Our Energetic Staff  Makes Sure That Every Pup Gets Attention and Interaction at All Times.


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. This leads us to believe that the rise in animal anxiety and separation issues stem from dogs being left alone for long hours.

As pack animals, dogs need the company of humans or other dogs. At Poochie’s Sarasota, FL facility we separate the dogs by size and temperament so that we can be sure they are forming a pack with other dogs they feel comfortable with. When your pup returns home, he or she will be physically and emotionally pooped. Unlike a pet sitter who stays at your home, we provide both indoor and outdoor facilities equipped with toys, balls, beds, pools and treats (if allowed). Each doggy area is equipped with cameras so that you may check in on your pet and watch them play.

We want you to be secure in the knowledge that Poochie’s is the perfect place for your pooch. Please call in advance for a Day/Play care Interview. Poochie’s cannot accept aggressive dogs.


Enrollment Process

To ensure the safety of all pups at Poochie’s the following is required for enrollment:

  • We accept dogs of all ages. If your dog is elderly we will place him/her with a group that will match their energy level. We want all pups and parents to confident with the pups’ surroundings. 
  • All dogs must be current with their vaccinations which include Bordetella, Rabies and Distemper. And current with Flea/Tick preventative.
  • Each dog must undergo an initial Temperament Evaluation to determine whether it is human or dog aggressive. To assure successful pack formation it is recommended that you make a one day a week commitment so that your dog is comfortable with the other “regulars” that day. They really do form Doggy friendships. 
  • Signed waivers are required for enrollment and can be downloaded directly from our website, under New Customer Forms.

FREE PUPPY MONDAYS! New at Poochie’s every puppy under six months old is FREE for daycare on Mondays. To qualify your puppy must be have their second round of puppy shots and be under 6 months of age.

Our lil Max is worn out when he returns home and misses his buddies when he is not there. We love knowing he is in a safe place while we work. Thanks ladies!

The place looks very kept up and the pets look very happy. From the recent pics I’ve seen I would certainly say it’s a great place to bring your doggies

A Day At Poochie’s


Each dog has the free run within our 3,000 square feet of air conditioned indoor space as well as 3,000 square feet of outdoor fenced space, equipped with playground equipment, toys, balls, frisbees and pools. We provide constant supervised play all day. If dogs get tired they simply find a cool place to take a nap. We also have cots for dogs to get off the floor.

We do not have mandatory nap time and dogs are NEVER put in crates or kennels. Poochie’s is entirely crate/cage free. Our outdoor fenced in area is equipped with astroturf so dogs never get dirty. We pride ourselves in keeping Poochie’s extremely clean so you will never smell urine or feces odors. The astroturf is cleansed and sprayed down each evening as well.
