Winter Weekends

Come and play at dog daycare with your dog!

Ditch the cold, muddy, dog park and play at Barks and Recreation instead! Use our toys and play equipment, and hang out with new friends in our four seperate play spaces. Perfect for puppy playdates, greyhound gangs, breed meet-ups and all sorts of off-lead fun. Just like a dog park, but better!

Why bring your dog to Barks and Recreation instead of taking them for a walk or to the dog park?

•Avoid the rain, wind, cold and mud and play indoors instead

•A clean and hygienic environment – our premises, equipment and toys are cleaned with veterinary disinfectant daily

•Decreased risk of contracting parasites and diseases from unwell or unvaccinated dogs, or contaminated soil and faeces

•A daycare staff member onsite to oversee the space, ensure house rules are being followed and that dogs are displaying proper doggy etiquette

•Make use of our toys and equipment

•Three separately fenced indoor spaces and a large artificially turfed outdoor space

•Access to bathroom and kitchenette facilities

Saturdays in Winter 

10am - 3pm

All welcome! No bookings required. 

$15 daycare customers / $25 non-daycare customers

Additional dogs from the same family $10.

Please note: This is NOT a daycare service. Staff will be in attendance to oversee the space and offer support if needed, however you are responsible for your own dog – think of it like a children's play centre, but way cooler (because it's for dogs!) All attendees will be required to agree to our Winter Weekends House Rules and Terms and Conditions and provide contact details upon arrival.
