If you live in Islington and you’re looking for a proper doggy daycare centre in to look after your dog during the day, hopefully your search can stop here! We aren’t your standard inner city daycare centre that keeps dogs in cramped indoor areas and maybe a quick run around a park if they’re lucky, oh no! Buddies is a 16 acre countryside daycare centre on the edge of London where dogs can spend their days playing in the open air with a group of their best friends. If you gave them a choice, we are confident we know where your dog would choose!
Buddies offers the perfect adventure playground for dogs. We have a purpose built countryside doggy paradise- filled with giant fallen tree trunks to clamber up, splash pools to swim in, trampolines to bounce on and a whole host of other friendly dogs to chase, wrestle and play with! No matter what your dog’s interests are, we make sure they have a fun filled day- every day.
One of the biggest benefits of us having so much outdoor private space, is being able to create separate play areas for different groups of dogs. Here at Buddies, we have an area just for pups to play in safety and learn about the world away from big clumsy paws. We work tirelessly to ensure pups have positive experiences every day, helping them grow in confidence and develop into happy and sociable adult dogs.
Meet Jenny- our dedicated daycare manager
“I have a bachelor of science degree in Applied Animal Behaviour and Training and my previous work experiences include working in a veterinary practice, a kennel, The Guide Dogs For The Blind Association, and I have even worked at an exotic animal rescue charity where I got to care for a pack of Canadian timberwolves! Even though my past work with animals has been varied I always knew I would work with dogs, and I am lucky enough to have been here from the start! I now manage the day to day running of the daycare and there is never a dull moment! I count myself so fortunate to lead such a wonderful and caring team, and spending my days with the best dogs in London!”
Lizzie with Puyol
Buddies are by far the best daycare in London. They take excellent care of our Golden Retriever, Puyol, and he comes home happy and worn out after a fun day with his friends. They are friendly, reliable, and always on time- Puyol knows exactly when it’s time to go sit by the door and wait to be picked up. I don’t know what we would do without Buddies! They are a real life saver if you work full time and don’t have time to give your pup their much needed exercise and stimulation.
