The Crate Escape

Doggie Day Care

Dog Day Care

Plenty of friends, lots of affection, and tons of toys make day care at The Crate Escape a dog-gone good time!

Is your dog bored or lonely while you’re gone during the day? The Crate Escape’s doggie day care, conveniently located in central Connecticut, is the perfect solution for dogs that need a little more excitement! We have separate indoor and outdoor play areas where dogs are grouped based on size, temperament and play style. With a variety of fun toys and activities, dogs get as much exercise as they desire – so they’ll come home tired and happy!

Dogs are constantly supervised throughout the day, and you can check in on them anytime via our live webcams!

What to know before you dig in...

  • Bring your own snacks:
    Because many dogs have allergies and sensitive tummies, we do not provide snacks at naptime. If you wish to provide one, please bring it in a small baggie labeled with your dog’s first and last name.
  • Leave your bedding at home:
    Dogs are put in individual runs to rest during naptime. Please note that bedding from home is not permitted.
  • For the first day or shy dogs:
    If it is your dog’s first day, or if he/she tends to be nervous, please try to get them here as early as possible (we’re here at 6:30 am). Walking into a room of 30+ dogs and having everyone try and say “hello” at the same time can be overwhelming, so it makes for a much easier transition if they are the first ones here and greet everyone as they arrive.

To join in the day care fun, your dog must be:

  • At least 4 months old
  • Spayed or neutered (if over 6 months)
  • Current on vaccinations for rabies, distemper, and bordetella (canine cough)
  • Shown with proof of negative fecal exam from within the past 6 months
  • In good health and free of fleas and ticks
  • Friendly with people and other dogs

Bark All About It

My dog Jed has been going to the Crate Escape since he was very young, and now he's six. He absolutely loves it there! He can barely contain his excitement when we pull up in the car! The staff are all very friendly and great with the dogs. I love the fact that there are cameras and I can watch him from afar on the ODoggy app on my phone. I always see the staff interacting with the dogs and know that they are being very observant! The fact that Jed is thrilled to go there tells me a lot! I know that he is being well cared for and I really feel confident that he is in good hands!
