I had pondered for a while about getting a dog as I work full time. An American work colleague mentioned Doggy Day Care becoming very popular in the States so I googled it for the Newcastle area and found Newcastle K9 Day Care.

Coco goes there full time and she absolutely loves it. She has company while I’m at work, has the opportunity to play outside in the garden and in the house with other dogs, and gets taken out for proper walks. The pick up and drop off by Nicky is a real bonus, she is extremely reliable and flexible if I need to change days, and I come home to a very tired and contented dog.

I would recommend Newcastle K9 Day Care to any dog owner who wants to have the reassurance that their dog is well looked after and happy while they are at work. It is worth every penny.


We have always wanted a dog but due to us both working full time, we weren’t able to as it’s not fair on a dog for them to be left all day on their own. Thanks to Newcastle K9 Day Care we are now able to have 2 Chocolate Labradors, they go to doggy day care every day whilst we are at work.

I have complete peace of mind that they are being looked after and I don’t have to worry about them at all during the day, leaving me to focus on work. Belle and Ruby absolutely love going and pretty much bound up to the front door from the car each morning.

They have a great time playing with the other dogs, going out for walks and even having a cheeky afternoon snooze. Both of them come back tired and happy, ready for tea and another nap. I would definitely recommend Nicky and Newcastle K9 Day Care, as they provide a caring and trustworthy service, treating your dogs as part of their family.

Nicky & Mike

My husband and I had never had a dog before and at the beginning of this year we made the big decision that we would really love to have one, but our concern was we didn’t want to leave him alone all day and what would happen when we needed to work away.

Newcastle K9 Day Care was recommended to us by a friend and we have never looked back. We have an adorable Westie who absolutely loves going to Nicky’s when we are at work and comes home absolutely shattered.

He went there as soon as he had his injections and it was the best thing we could have done because his social skills are brilliant, especially with his terrier temperament.

Nicky is always there for advice whenever we need it ,and she treats him like her own.

Tracey & Neil

Nicky has been looking after my German Shepherd, Luna, for many years. I have been more than happy with the care Nicky provides. Luna has always come back clean and satisfyingly tired, which surprisingly improved our quality of life! Luna never needs to be walked when we get back from work and going out at night is guilt free. The price she charges is less than any other place I could find.

Also, Nicky has always been flexible with dog care, which I have been very grateful for as I have a busy work schedule.

For me personally the reassurance of bringing my dog to Newcastle K9 Day Care didn’t take long. My dog is wary of new people and normally takes months to settle in new places but it only took days before Luna was pulling me to Nicky’s!

Thank you Nicky! You’ve been fantastic in every aspect of dog daycare.
