Small Dog Daycare

Our Small Dog Daycare program is designed specifically for dogs weighing from 11 pounds to 35 pounds. Our Small Dog daycare yards come equip with a private splash pool, covered pavilion and both turf and grass yards and plenty of toys. Dogs in our small pack enjoy socializing with their furry friends and getting lots of fresh air and exercise by fetching balls and toys, chasing their friends in the yards, splashing around in the pool and relaxing in the sun with their favorite daycare counselors.

Large Dog Daycare

Our Large Dog Daycare program is a high-energy, outdoor pack for dogs typically weighing over 35 pounds and who are well-suited to play in a larger pack. Our Large Dog Daycare yards include a state-of-the-art jetted pool and waterfall, several large grass yards to stretch out and run, covered turf and a pavilion area for relaxation later in the day. Dogs in our large pack enjoy engaging in interactive activities with their furry friends and engage in play such as chase, swimming, retrieving toys and are provided a day full of both mental and physical stimulation with their favorite daycare counselors.

Senior Daycare

Our Senior Dog Daycare program is designed for a more mature or moderately active group of pups with a relaxed play style. There is no age restriction for this group, however it is more appropriate for dogs reaching their golden years or pups who do not prefer such a high-energy group as Large Dog Daycare. This program allows dogs to play in their own space while still getting the exercise and stimulation they need, having the opportunity to not only have fun but also to play in an environment they are comfortable in. Our senior program is also available to pups with special needs. Dogs in this program typically weigh over 35 pounds.

Group Play

Our Group Play program is made to fit a myriad of needs for dogs who are lodging and who also get dropped off for the day. This program is designed to provide a more structured and customized experience for dogs, which include smaller groups to allow for more enrichment opportunities. Group Play sessions are given in intervals throughout the day to allow for rest breaks in between playing with their friends.


Our Playschool program focuses specifically on puppies aged 4 months to just over 1 year old. Puppies in this program do not need to be spayed or neutered until they are 1 year old. Female puppies may not participate in Playschool during their heat cycle. This program is designed to ensure puppies learn proper group play behaviors before entering the daycare packs, with a structured and enriching environment.

Two State-Of-The-Art Pools

On our "large dog" daycare side, dogs enjoy a custom designed, 700 square foot pool featuring three water wall cascades, faux palm trees with shooting waterfalls, a beach-style entry and a custom filtration and purification system. The doggie pool is surrounded by a 6,000 square foot turf playground and 30-foot shade canopy. On our "small dog" daycare side, dogs enjoy their own private splash pool, covered pavilion and turf area.

Top 7 Reasons Your Dog Should Attend Daycare at Rover Oaks

  1. A Good Solution For Busy Owners. Daycare will keep your dog active and fit instead of leading the bored life at home. Plus, they come home worn out and ready for a snuggle sesh!

  2. Exercise & Socialization. Your dog will have the opportunity to meet and play with new dogs and learn how to properly socialize and interact with other dogs.

  3. 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’!

  4. 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.

  5. 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. Daycare provides tons of stimulation and exercise, which curbs the problem behaviors that can stem from boredom.

Daycare Baths

One of the benefits of Daycare at Rover Oaks is the opportunity for dogs to play in our large yards and pools. As a result, some pups will get dirty while romping and rolling in the grass and wading pools. Our daycare counselors will do their very best to clean up dirty pets before they go home, however pet parents may wish to contact us to schedule a Daycare Bath with our Salon and Spa. Daycare Baths are generally scheduled in the afternoons to allow pups to enjoy the maximum amount of time outside as they are able.

Why Choose Rover Oaks for Doggie Daycare?

Voted “Best Doggie Daycare Program” by Houston Press, Houston PetTalk, Houston A-List, Katy Sun, West University Examiner, and Bellaire Examiner

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!
