Doggy Daycare St Ives
A Dog's Day Out...

What We Do...

At Luca's Doggy Daycare we want to give your dog the day out they deserve. We'll collect your dog in the morning ready for an action-packed day with their friends exploring our Daycare site, exercising and playing games. The site is set in the Cambridgeshire countryside in a fully enclosed 2 acre paddock complete with indoor/outdoor astroturf play area, heated timber cabin, sandpit and a full toy box! We drop your dog back home again happy and tired in the afternoon.

We offer a safe, friendly and social service where your dog can play, meet their friends and have fun. We only accept friendly dogs and they must be fully up to date with their vaccinations. We get to know each dog individually and offer as much love and fuss as if they were at home.

Luca's Doggy Daycare is suitable for all dog breeds from Pugs to Poodles, Retrievers to Ridgeback's - young and old, we just adjust their exercise and rest times accordingly.

Weโ€™ll pick up your dog in the morning from your home in one of our professionally converted, vet approved dog taxi vans. Once your dog arrives at our site they will be free to explore the fully enclosed paddock and make use of the dog friendly play equipment including tunnels, jumps and an array of tennis balls and Kongโ€™s! They will play with their friends in small groups and will have plenty of areas to rest and relax.

Q: Are you insured?

A: Yes. Lucaโ€™s Doggy Daycare is insured with specialist animal trade insurers. Our insurance covers public liability; daycare, custody, control and transportation of your dog including loss of keys.

Q: Do you have any qualifications?

A: Yes. Along with our love of dogs and experience we have Animal Care and Animal First Aid qualifications from the College of Animal Welfare in Godmanchester. 

Q: What happens if my dog doesnโ€™t get on with another dog?

A: Lucaโ€™s Doggy Daycare is extremely strict in only accepting social dogs. This ensures all the dogs are happy in one anotherโ€™s company, so itโ€™s unlikely your dog will not get on with another dog. Dogโ€™s usually form their own social groups with dogs at the Daycare Centre who enjoy similar activities, running, chasing, sniffing bums that sort of thing…

Q: Do you only accept well-trained dogs?

A: No. In fact, one of the reasons people choose Lucaโ€™s Doggy Daycare is that socialisation and plenty of exercise often helps with training. Many owners have noticed improvement in their dog's behaviour after attending Lucaโ€™s. However, we only accept social dogs that have no history of aggression.

Q: Do I need to be home when you collect or drop off my dog?

A: No. Most clients are comfortable sharing a set of keys with Lucaโ€™s Doggy Daycare to enable us to collect and drop off your dog even if you are not home. All staff who have responsibility of clientโ€™s keys are DBS Checked.

Q: Will my dog be supervised at all times?

A: Yes. Your dog will be under constant supervision by our experienced doggy supervisors at the site and will NEVER be left unattended.

Q: I have a puppy or small dog, can they come to the Daycare Centre?

A: Yes. The day care centre is a great environment for your puppy to grow and socialise. We accept puppies from as young as 6 months old, once they are out of their vaccination period. Male dogs must be neutured.

Q: My dog doesnโ€™t like crates or confined spaces; will he cope with travelling to and from the centre?

A: Yes. The crates are professionally fitted, and vet approved. They have more space than necessary for even the bigger breeds. We donโ€™t find that the dogs have any issues with the van or crates, since it has a hugely positive association for them โ€“ it means they get to have a fun day running around with their friends!

Q: Do you offer daycare on the weekends and bank holidays?

A: Lucaโ€™s Doggy Daycare only operates from Monday-Friday and is closed Weekends and Bank Holidays.
