The Rover Oaks Group Play program is designed to provide a more structured experience for dogs who are lodging at Rover Oaks, as well as those who prefer a smaller group of dogs to play with, and includes more individualized attention, enrichment opportunities, and a more customized experience for each dog. Sessions are given in intervals throughout the day to allow the dogs to rest between playing with their friends. A la carte: $46/day Discounted Punch Card Rate: $41/day
The Rover Oaks Junior Daycare program focuses on our puppies 4 months to 12 months old. Puppies do not need to be spayed or neutered until they are 12 months old. Females may not participate during their heat cycle. By keeping them in a group setting of no more than 15 dogs, we control their environment to ensure they learn proper group play behaviors. We also work on recall, sit, down, and stay, which helps the Junior Daycare members build a good relationship with our counselors, and it sets younger dogs up to enjoy Doggie Daycare for the rest of their lives. A la carte: $46/day Discounted Punch Card Rate: $41/day
The Rover Oaks Doggie Daycare Development program provides a more controlled environment for dogs who may need a slower introduction to a large group. This individualized program has been designed to give dogs who require more extensive socialization an opportunity to slowly integrate into a customized group. This experience will simulate regular attendance to our Doggie Daycare program while teaching each dog who participates how to interact appropriately with a group of dogs. Any dog participating in this program must commit to at least 1 day a week for 4 consecutive weeks. After 4 weeks of participation, the Doggie Daycare Manager will discuss each dog’s progress with their pet parent and which program is best for their dog. Rate: $61/day

They make special considerations of dogs in every playgroup, helping them learn how to behave in social situations, be more comfortable around new dogs, and respond to basic commands from counselors.

Human Contact. During the day while you’re away at work, your dog doesn’t have to stay home and feel lonely. Our daycare staff will give them lots of lovin’!
Expert-Supervised Playtime. Our experienced daycare team have had training to interpret dog body language so they can ensure all the dogs are comfortable. Dogs are separated into play groups by size and play style to create the safest and most enjoyable environment. and closely monitored with a ratio of 1 staff for every 12-15 dogs.
Relief From Boredom. If your dog tends to excessively bark, chew, dig or destruct things around your house while you are away, they are probably lacking sufficient outlets for their energy.

Regular Daycare Drop-Off Schedule 6:30 AM – 6:30 PM Monday - Friday 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM Saturday 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM Sunday
Pets can be dropped off anytime during those hours, and all pets must be picked up by closing time. Pets who are lodging overnight can schedule sessions in group play after they have passed a Social Evaluation. Please contact the Doggie Daycare department at Rover Oaks Houston for more information regarding the specific schedule for daycare attendees at that location. Holidays may affect regular daycare hours.
New Client? Please complete our Social Evaluation Application.
Approval Process: To be considered, all candidates must be neutered or spayed (except for Junior Daycare), must not be aggressive or have any other excessive behavioral issues, current on required vaccinations, and using an effective flea & tick preventative. Our staff will contact owners to schedule their pet’s Social Evaluation after receiving the completed application forms and vaccination records. The Social Evaluation assesses the social skills of potential new pets by gradually introducing them to our approved daycare dogs. A pet may be evaluated while it is lodging at Rover Oaks as long as the Social Evaluation application has been submitted and the Social Evaluation appointment has been scheduled prior to the pet’s arrival for lodging. Dogs must at least 4 months old to participate in Junior Daycare and 12 months old to participate in any other daycare program at Rover Oaks.
Reservations are always required for pets to participate in daycare. A pet may be included in the Rover Oaks Doggie Daycare program as follows:
(A) Standing Reservation: Pets with Standing Reservations have reservations for a specific day (or days) of the week. The pet attends daycare on the same day (or days) of each consecutive week on an ongoing basis. A requirement for clients who request a Standing Reservation is the purchase of a Daycare Punchcard, which will be punched each time the pet attends daycare.
(B) Daily Call-In: Occasionally, a pet with a Standing Reservation is not able to come to daycare on its designated day, which leaves an "open slot” for that one day. Owners of approved pets (with or without standing reservations) may call Rover Oaks at 6:30 a.m. Monday through Friday and leave a message inquiring about daycare availability for that day. If a space is available, Rover Oaks will contact the owner by 7:30 a.m.
(C) While Boarding: Pets approved for Doggie Daycare may make a reservation to participate in a Group Play when they are staying at Rover Oaks overnight.
(D) Walk-ins: On Saturdays and Sundays at Rover Oaks Houston only. "walk-ins" are welcome. Reservations are always required otherwise.
One of the benefits of Doggie Daycare at Rover Oaks is playing in our large Dog Park. As a result, some pets will get dirty (especially on rainy days) while romping and rolling in the grass and wading pool. Our daycare staff will do their very best to clean up dirty pets before they are picked up by the owners. However, owners should understand that the primary role of our daycare staff is to supervise their pets, and time is not available to provide a thorough bath before sending pets home. As an alternative, pet owners may contact the front desk to schedule a “Daycare Bath” in the Grooming Salon. Baths begin around 12:00 p.m. and are usually completed by 5:30 p.m. Owners should understand that their pet could become dirty once again if allowed to return to Doggie Daycare after a bath.

Moose gets the human attention he loves and gets to socialize with other dogs and get some exercise in the process. When he hops out of the car, he makes a beeline for the big dog play area which means less owner guilt for leaving him for the day - he loves it!
When we pick Pudge up from daycare, he's so wiped out. So worth it. I know he has a blast. I really appreciate the staff for making daycare such a fun experience for him.
I have been taking my dog, Carter to Rover Oaks Doggie Daycare for about a year and a half and he absolutely loves it! He hangs out the window barking all the way to doggy daycare!
