Doggy Daycare

COVID-19 Daycare regulations

We are happy to announce that we have gotten our essential service certificate from the CIPC.

What we have to offer is a garden, playtime and socialisation for your pup. We will be taking them out for walks between 8 and 9am so if you want your pup to come on the walk they must be dropped at daycare before 8am or otherwise they can be dropped off after 9am. We also give them a decent amount of exercise on our premises. We know that many clients of Mary Puppins have dogs who are struggling with the space constraints of lockdown and we are therefore offering this service to help with the health and wellness of your pups.

We will be open from 7:30am – 6pm

How does it work in terms of drop off and pick up?
– No one will be allowed into the premises but myself and my partner who is staying with me
– I will be frequently disinfecting the gate with bleach or opening the gate myself for the dogs
– All owners must wear masks when dropping off and picking up
– If you arrive at the same time as another owner please stand 2m away from each other and let one dog enter at a time
– When driving to and from the daycare we have been told that you can show the police our certificate but we also suggest you pair the drive with a trip to the grocery store as the purpose of lockdown is to limit the movement of people


Mary Puppins Doggy Daycare is the happy home environment every pup needs while owners are busy at work. We are situated in Devil’s Peak Estate in a quiet and peaceful neighbourhood. Our daycare strives to provide a wholesome, safe and fun-filled experience for your doggos. The premises features a spacious garden as well as indoor facilities for wet weather. Throughout the day, the dogs receive all the love and care they need from our attentive staff. Lots of playtime, naptime and daily adventure walks will ensure the happiness of your fur babies.

Doggy daycare resolves the stress that your dogs feel when left home alone. By attending daycare, they no longer experience separation anxiety and loneliness, but rather enjoy their time away from home. Owners need not worry about their dogs or their homes as doggy daycare eliminates destructive habits such as zoomies, chewing and barking.

Enroll your pup with Mary Puppins and give your dog it’s borkin’ best life!
