Auckland's Premium Dog Daycare

Daily Socialising and Enrichment of your Dog(s)

What makes our dog daycare so awesome?

Size Appropriate Play 2
Size Appropriate Play


We separate dogs into specific play parks depending on size and play style. We do this because dogs are all different; some are quieter than others, and some like their own space. All new daycare guests undergo an initial assessment to determine the best park for them. 



Our modern and spacious indoor and outdoor play parks are designed with fun and safety in mind. Whether your dog is playing with their little friends in "Toy Town", romping with its big buddies, or even hanging out in our outdoor park, it will have plenty of space to run, jump, play, or relax – whatever the weather.

Safety First
Safety First


Your dog’s well-being and safety are our #1 priority. Their energy levels and temperament will be carefully observed while in our care.  All caregivers are trained to engage your dog safely with other dogs to provide the best experience possible for all our furry guests.

Activity Timetable
Activity Timetable


Every day there’s a new timetable with games and activities to stimulate and enrich your dog’s day. We start with free play, then move on to games like cardboard rip and bubble pop. We have rest time with blankets and classical music, time for basic training, and more play!

Player of the Day


Every day we choose a standout dog as the player of the day. Their name is added to our park activity board and highlighted on our Facebook feeds for proud parents to celebrate!

“We Want to say a big thank you to the team at Pets in the City. The excitement from Coco when she realises we have arrived shows how much she loves coming to daycare. Your availability to listen and offer encouragement, advice, and reassurance through all the puppy stages to me was invaluable and a great reassurance. Thank you again, and will see you in daycare.”

"All staff at PITC are amazing and very friendly; we recently put Brody through the Puppy Development training courses on offer, and the wonderful Danielle took him through his paces; she did a fantastic job! After the first 6-week course, we continued and did another 6 weeks, and I noticed a real difference in Brody’s behaviour. The training was well worth it".
Sandy and Brody
"We love Pets in the City! And more importantly, so does our dog, Hiro. We drop our pup off for daycare twice a week and on occasional weekends. The team is a good group of people who care for and love dogs. Hiro even comes home with better manners than when I drop him off. They play and work with the dogs and are so knowledgeable. I am so thankful!"
Jonathan and Hiro
“Pets in the City are the best! Mocha has been a regular for the past 5 years, the team ensured that every time we visit, we were welcomed, and she was taken care of, having so much fun and staying safe and loved by the entire team. I never worry about Mocha when she’s at daycare, because from the photos I receive, she’s always chasing someone’s shoes, or trying to destroy a toy or a towel.”
Mo and Mocha
“Kélia’s second home for the last 4 years, and she shows it with her excited squeals in the car on arrival. I feel confident leaving her with the amazing and experienced staff for her day of fun and cuddles. I would not want to take my girl anywhere else! Thank you PITC!”
Cecile and Kelia
“We have been taking our 3 ½-year-old dog to Pets in the City for most of his life. He attends 2-3 times per week due to our work commitments and the invaluable socialisation skills he gets there. To say the staff there are incredible would be an understatement. He cannot wait to enter the building and is greeted like a long-lost friend. He has had overnight stays there, and we can relax knowing how well cared for he is. If there are any concerns, the team will call to update you. If you are looking for a place to send your precious dog to for love, attention, interaction, and fun, look no further. We cannot speak highly enough of them.”
Lynne and Buddy

I'm In! How do I Apply?


Step 1: Complete our online Application Form.


The first step in having your Dog become part of the PITC family is to complete the new customer registration form via our Customer Portal. This gives us some background information about your dog, including their personality and possible behavioural traits.

As part of the online registration process, you will be asked to upload a photo or scan of your dog's latest vaccination information. We require all vaccinations to be current for all the dog's health and well-being. Kennel Cough and Canine Leptospirosis need to be given yearly, and Vanguard 5/DHPPI every three years. 

Puppies must have completed their second round of vaccinations, including Kennel Cough. 

You can access the online registration form by clicking the following link:




Step 2: Book your Dog in for their Assessment


Once you have completed the online application, you will receive an email with instructions for how to book your dog's assessment through our online portal. Please check your junk mail folder if you are still waiting to receive this email within a few minutes of submitting your application.


Step 3: Your Dog's First Day!


On your dog’s first day at Day Care, they will undergo a 90-minute Assessment with our Senior Caregiver which will enable us to get to know him or her better and help us determine which play park and play group will best suit the needs of your dog. 

Your dog will be closely monitored throughout the day to ensure they fit in and feel comfortable.

At the end of their first day, your dog will leave with their Pets In The City Doggie Day Care Report, which will tell you about their first day!  Of course, you can always check in and see how your furry friend is going with a phone call to our friendly reception team or check out the daily park antics on Facebook, where we post pictures daily of our visitors.
