9 min read  •  
Tawfiq Kuttab

As a pet owner, I love spending as much time as possible with my puppy. However, sometimes separation is needed. This is a common experience for all pet parents. Whether you need someone to take care of your pup when you’re unavailable, you want your furry friend to socialize with other pups, or if you simply want to give them access to opportunities that you can’t provide, doggy day cares are the solution to all of these problems. Today, we have compiled a list to help find the best doggy day care in Milton for you and your pup.

Doggy Day Cares in Milton

Redwood Pet Resort

First up, Redwood truly lives up to the resort name. With a climate-controlled facility, individual suites for each dog, and over 4000 square feet of space, your pup will be in doggie heaven. But Redwood doesn’t just host dogs. Cats, rabbits, Guinea pigs, Birds, Reptiles, and just about all companion pets are welcome guests at this resort.

Suites start from $33 for the standard room and can go up to $50 for the extra-large suite or the private cottage designed with shy and senior dogs in mind. To customize your pup’s stay, you’ll have many add-ons to choose from including daily playtime with staff, grooming services, and walks along nature trails.

Canine Crew Co.

775 Steeles Ave E, Milton, ON L9T 5H3

The Canine Crew has been serving pet parents in Milton for over five years. Whether you need short sessions of care or extra-long boarding services, the Canine crew can assist you. A full day (up to 10 hours) with the Canine crew will set you back $37. Full days can be bundled into packages of 5, 10, or 20 days. Package pricing is provided in person by request.

Alongside their doggy day care, the crew offers affordable dog walking and quick play sessions for the pet parent on the go. Quick play sessions, that can last up to 2 hours, cost $17. 30-minute individual walks cost $16. 

The Dog’s Inn

9720 5 Side Rd, Milton, ON L9T 7K8

The Dog’s Inn makes daily boarding services very simple. There are no limits on long-term stays at this inn. We’re sure every parent wants to spend as little time apart from their pup as possible. That said, sometimes duty calls and having a facility such as the Dog’s Inn to take long-term care of your pup can be extremely helpful. Of course, the dog’s inn also operates a doggy day care for pet parents that need daytime care with no overnights.

All packages come with one walk, playtime, and two to three feedings (per day). If your pets require medications or supplements, these are also administered at no additional cost. The Dog’s Inn also supplies various Loyall brand Canadian premium dog food, starting from $59.95 for 15KG of dog food.

Sunset Dog Retreat 

12273 Guelph Line, Campbellville, ON L0P 1B0

The Sunset Dog Retreat is the quintessential cage-free day care experience for dogs. The retreat houses a 4000 square foot barn facility, two acres of outdoor play area, and an indoor playroom. The retreat doesn’t skimp on comfort either, providing your pup with heated floors and an air filtration system. The best part is that your pup can enjoy these incredible spaces without breaking the bank. A day of day care will only set you back $24.

In comparison, dog boarding will cost $45 to $55 a night. Lastly, to make sure your dog is safe and healthy at all times, they are under 24 hours of supervision. If any issues should arise, the retreat has a professional vet on site ready to resolve the matter.

Abbey Lane Kennels

1093 Lower Base Line W, Milton, ON L9E 0H6, Canada

The facility at Abbey lane kennels welcomes both dogs and cats. Indoor runs are climate-controlled for your pet’s comfort, and each indoor run is paired with an outdoor run. Pets have access to the outdoor runs three times a day. Lastly, the entire facility is surrounded by an enclosed play yard, allowing your pets to get a good workout.

Standard rates are affordable at $19 a night for cats and starting from $29 a night for dogs. To customize a perfect stay for your pup or cat, you can opt for individual add-ons such as walks, playtime, and even grooming services. On the other hand, you can choose packages of bundled add-ons that provide the same services at heavy discounts. As a bonus, if your pet stays for three days or more, they get a free bath when their stay ends.

Rover and Dog Vacay

Rover provides a unique marketplace service for pet parents. Think of it as the Uber of dog sitting and dog walking services. All you need to do is enter your location, the services you need, and for how long you need them. Rover then presents you with a list of sitters that are most suitable for you and your pup. All sitters pass background checks and are approved by a team of pet sitting specialists at Rover. When choosing a sitter, you can read verified reviews left by previous pet parents.

Dog vacay is another network of dog sitters that have merged with the Rover marketplace as of 2017 (taking on the Rover name). Despite this move being made over four years ago, the Dog Vacay name and website still exist. However, any attempt to book from dog vacay will redirect you to the Rover website. 


Pawshake is another marketplace that manages much of the same services that Rover does, including dog boarding, doggy day care, home visits, dog walking, and house sitting. Pawshake does things a little bit differently in that they let you meet and greet potential sitters, free of charge, before committing to a sitter. This personal touch to the selection process will ease any pet parent’s mind. As you may expect, the team at Pawshake also have their own vetting process for sitters. In fact, only around 15% of applicants pass the rigorous application. Lastly, to ensure the best possible care for your furry friend, every service booking on Pawshake comes with free veterinary coverage.
