Happy Dogs, where dogs make friends
Dogs are pack animals by nature. They love being together. They hate being alone.
That’s why we believe, next to you, the right daycare could be the best thing for your dog.
How we do daycare
We have built our daycare service around three pillars:
Natural pack handling
Our staff are trained to be pack leaders — referees of safe play — based on an expert understanding of natural dog behavior. No cages, leashes, or spray bottles.
Being strict when it matters
We’re meticulous about things like cleanliness and up-to-date vaccinations. Some say we’re obsessive. We say dog well-being is really important.
Honesty and transparency
You can see our dog runs from our lobby and from our (free) live cams. We tell you if anything is out of the ordinary. We tell you if we think your dog isn’t happy with us.

Convenience for dog parents
We offer door-to-door pick-up and drop-off from around the L.I.C. neighborhood.

We’re in it together
A dog is a joy – and a responsibility. At Happy Dogs, taking care of your dog is a partnership between you, the dog’s parents, and our team.
That’s why we have a detailed membership handbook that lays out exactly what to expect of us — and what is expected of you.
Working together, we ensure your dog’s happiness and safety.
