Going away on vacation/business and not sure what to do with your fur baby? Look no further. 

The Durban Dog Hotel is not your usual dog boarding service. We are a home away from home that caters for fur babies on our couches and in our beds. Your doggo will have a surrogate mom or dad to care for them throughout their stay and will even share a nice comfy double bed at night with this dog crazy person. DOGS ARE SEPARATED INTO PACKS ACCORDING TO SIZE AND ENERGY LEVEL. Dont worry your Toy pom will never bump into a robust great dane.

Sonseirai is a well-educated lady with two degrees but you'll find her in muddy jeans with a smile on her face as she leads the DDH team. She has studied pack integration and dog behaviour for several years and has shared her knowledge and experience with the DDH team, her staff is therefore educated and able to offer excellent care for your fur baby. Each staff member has been hand picked by Sonseirai and Candice and trained from the ground up by them.

We offer 24/7 five star CARE 365 days a year.

Free run of the 5 acred fenced land and regular ball times, treasure hunts and nap times throughout the day.

NO CAGES, NO WENDY HOUSES! 


We also guarantee one WhatsApp update 5 out of 7 days a week (Sundays and Wednesdays excluded) including photos so you can see how your baby is enjoying his/her vacation! 

Sonseirai is an educated dog lover with years of hands on experience. She has mastered the art of integrating a pack and her favourite thing in the world is to spread that knowledge to her trusted team and replicate all she knows.

Sonseirai only hosts a limited number of dogs at a time to ensure exclusive care so book now, don't delay!

Pooches must be socialized with dogs and people and be neutered/spayed and have all vaccinations up to date.

Durban Dog Hotel Services - Day Care

Dog Day Care Services

Contact us for rates: 083 650 2594

Dogs are even more social than human beings. A day alone is okay for us humans but it can be hard on your fur baby.

A dog finds his/her identity and sense of being in his/her pack. It is unnatural for a pooch to be without a pack for days on end and this can lead to an over-excitement when he/she is eventually around his pack/parents.

Does your fur baby jump up on strangers? Run out the gate if it's open? Bark/howl when you leave home for work? Up all night barking at who knows what?  He/she may be saying.."I miss you, I need a friend, I am bored and frustrated Mom!"

Explore our doggie day care service which includes:

  • Ball times with other dogs
  • Off lead walks on the 5 acres of fenced land
  • A fenced large pool for those who love to swim (under supervision)
  • Treasure hunts
  • Cuddle and nap time whilst enjoying a massage and a bit of animal planet TV time one-on-one pooch-to-human contact all day
  • Socializing with fellow pooches of similar size and energy level

​The DDH team will also teach your baby some healthier ways of expressing their needs.

PLEASE NOTE: The hotel is dog paradise and we are protective over that atmosphere. We will only enrol poochies with minor behavioural problems or 'quirks' for day care.

All power breeds are subject to a meet and greet before enrollment.

Sonseirai and her team are available all year round for dogs in need of more serious behaviour modification OFF SITE by appointment.

Please be aware Sonseirai and her team have much experience reading doggie behaviour. They do not advise merging a pack or administering doggie day care without the same.

Pooches must be socialized with dogs and people and be neutered/spayed and have all vaccinations up to date.

    5 star review  Doggy Day Care is just the most fabulous facility for new and old doggy owners. We took our pup Mowgli to doggy day care for a period of about 3 months (3 days a week) for socialisation from the age of 9 weeks old. We also signed him up for one-on-one behaviour work for the first two months and we just can't thank Sonserai and Candice enough. Our little Mo went from being a little terror to the most sweet and gentle pup. We could not believe the difference in his personality. We were worried that all of the behaviour work would be reversed when we stopped taking him to day care so we signed our domestic worker up for 2 lessons with Sonserai in order to teach her all the tricks of the trade with emphasis on correction (should he chew carpets, dig holes, jump up on visitors, etc). Needless to say we have not looked back. We would highly recommend Doggy Day Care and the Durban Dog Hotel to anyone and everyone! Xx

    positive review  My babies Ava and Oscar love going to “school” to play with all their friends at the Durban Dog Hotel, they can’t get out the car fast enough. All the staff are absolutely amazing and truly love our furbabies like their own. I also love the fact that I get updated on their day with the cutest pictures where my dogs actually look like they’re smiling with happiness. 💜
