Doggy Daycare

Safe. Fun. Social

We offer some of the largest daycare facilities in Portland. Lots of room to roam, play, rest and get petted means our furry guests enjoy a home away from home. For their safety, guests are grouped with other dogs of similar energy levels and sizes during playtime. Also, we limit the number of guests on any given day to create the optimal environment for dogs.

It's our goal to send your pup home happy and refreshed and pleasantly tired. Give our daycare rates a gander.

Both 3 Dogs Boarding & Daycare and Stay Pet Hotel have complimentary off-street parking.

Are there any breed restrictions at 3 Dogs and Stay Pet Hotel?

No, there aren’t any breed restrictions. We carefully evaluate each individual dog. We’re confident in our experience and ability to recognize potentially problematic behaviors in a dog – no matter the breed.

I work from home. Why would I bring my dog to daycare?

People often use dog daycare to continue their pup's socialization with other dogs and people. Ideally, dog daycare is a safer environment for this type of socialization than dog parks because all of the dogs have been evaluated and are supervised by experienced, trained staff members. Some people just want their dogs worn out from play so they’re a little easier to manage.

Ongoing socialization and exercise are crucial for a healthy, well adjusted dog.

What do the dogs do while they’re at daycare?

We like to let the pups spend most of the day interacting with each other while we supervise the play. They wrestle, run, rest…then wrestle again.

We have large facilities, with even larger outdoor areas. As a result, there’s plenty of space for play. We often take groups of dogs out into a large section of our outdoor space to chase the ball, or just run around and explore.

When weather permits, we have wading pools and sand boxes out in the yard.

We have plenty of play structures, both in our playroom and in our outdoor space. And don't forget the bubble machines in our play room. Many of our furry guests enjoy chasing and popping the bubbles.

What if my dog doesn’t enjoy playing with other dogs?

Not every dog loves to wrestle. Some prefer to spend their time lounging and hanging out with people. No problem!

We sort these guests into a more relaxed group of dogs. They tend to spend the better part of the day in the boarding area – this is the space with all of the futons and chairs.

Irrespective of where your pup spends time, we have staff with them all day long. You’ll often find one of our staff members sitting on a bed, surrounded by napping dogs.

All of the dogs are taken outside frequently throughout the day for potty breaks.

What if my dog really doesn’t like other dogs? Is there a separate area for dogs that don’t get along with others?

We offer private daycare and boarding at our Stay Pet facility. At Stay Pet, each dog has a private suite and is provided frequent one-on-one time with our staff. We Also have two outdoor areas and an indoor living room space set aside just for our private guests.

What about dogs that are on special diets or require medication?

Special diets and meds are no problem. We have many years of experience working with dogs requiring medication and/or with special dietary needs.

Just bring whatever food or medication when you leave your dog for daycare. We'll take care of the rest at no extra charge!

Is there an additional charge for medicating a dog?

No, there’s no up-charge for managing your dog’s medications.

If there are no kennels, how do you feed the dogs?

Don’t worry, we don’t feed the dogs in groups. We have several large crates that we set up at feeding times where every dog is fed separately. For dogs that can't be crated, we have a number of sectioned-off areas where they can eat on their own.

Do you offer a discount if I have two dogs?

Yes, we offer multiple dog discounts on daycare. For regulars, we have a selection of daycare packages to choose from. Please review Daycare Rates for information on prices and discounts.
