DogMa Daycare provides outdoor supervised pack play in our spacious yards and interaction with attentive, caring handlers 13 hours per day. Overnight boarding guests play all day – and snooze at night in our state-of-the art indoor facility with 24-7 staff taking guests out for potty breaks in the yards. And, we offer dog walking too!
DogMa was “grandfathered” in when D.C. ended zoning for outdoor dog daycares. With our outdoor yards covering half a city block, we are the only daycare in D.C. where your dog can play outside with a carefully selected pack.
DogMa is the only D.C. facility requiring all handlers to be certified by an IACP trainer. We carefully screen applicants before admission and closely staff each new dog on a trial day to ensure newcomers fit safely in the pack. We maintain a 20:1 maximum ratio of dogs-to-handlers. We have a midday rest period with each dog provided a crate and bedding washed after each use. Our boarding room has hospital–style flooring and wall treatments, and we sanitize throughout the day.
We don’t just know your dog’s name, we get to know your dog. We create playgroups in our four outdoor yards based on personality and playstyle. This ensures every dog has a fun and safe experience. Special diets? Meds? No problem! Our careful tracking system ensures each dog is cared for as instructed.
