Doggy Day Out


Doggy Day Out (DDO) is for pooches from Shepparton, Echuca/Kyabram, Numurkah/Wunghnu & Nathalia!

We LOVE Doggy Day Out (affectionately called DDO), not only because it is a real hoot for the dogs who come to play with us, but because our staff get so much (pure) joy out of watching their antics. Customers also love getting a tired and content pooch back home at the end of the play day.

In a nutshell, we pick up dogs from a central location in the morning, bring them back to the kennels for a play, and then return them home in the late afternoon. You can see the towns involved in DDO below – along with times and pick-up locations

We employ the same mix-n-match policy described elsewhere on our website to buddy up DDO dogs.

Needless to say, Doggy Day Out is perfect for active & social dogs and for those who might need a little more prompting to play or move.

We love hearing back from our customers that their hesitant pooch is now far more confident thanks to their playdates with us.

True!

When is Doggy Day Out?

Think of our DDO vehicle as if it were a school bus, because that is when we operate, and we give the kids (aka dogs) a break during Victorian School Holidays. You will find that our booking system will block these dates automatically. However, if you need to plan ahead, this will help: Victorian school terms
