About Us

Doggy Playcare is a scheduled dog daycare and training center in Saratoga Springs, NY. It’s a dog’s life at Doggy Playcare!

Saratoga, NY Dog Training

The Playcare Training Program was developed with this equation: Love, Language and Leadership. Doggy Playcare offers group and private training classes designed to give you the tools to become the owner of a balanced dog.

Group Obedience & Dog Walking Classes

We offer a variety of obedience and dog walking classes throughout the year. The Playcare training program is based off the 10 Playcare games designed to build leadership in a positive language to make sure your dog is happy while adapting to our human world. Our class size is typically 4-5 students which allows for a quality hands on-and most importantly-FUN learning environment.

Private Dog Training

All dogs are individual, so we vary our approach based on each dog’s personality and temperament and what will work for that dog. We also vary the dog behavior training to suit the family’s specific needs and lifestyle, the dog’s environment, and what YOU do or don’t want from your dog.

Doggy Daycare

We also offer an indoor/outdoor daycare facility in which the dogs are cared for and supervised located on Maple Avenue in Saratoga Springs, NY. With approximately 4,500 square feet of fun space, Playcare dogs are allowed to play with other dogs and humans all day! Our program is a scheduled one so unfortunately we can’t accommodate day boards or short term stays.

We look forward to meeting you and your pup! Give us a call at 518-886-8876 today!

“Our labradoodle loves going to Doggy Playcare so much that as soon as we turn onto their road he starts yipping and whining as if to say, “Hurry, hurry, go faster!” He races right in, barking in joy to see his friends – human and furry alike. Our dog has always loved meeting and playing with other dogs, but I worried about bringing him to the dog park since he didn’t always recognize or understand the other dogs’ cues. Since our dog has been going to Doggy Playcare he has learned the social skills he needs while getting to romp and play in a safe environment. I never have to worry about another dog’s temperament or health issues. Besides other canine friends, Doggy Playcare has toys and activities to engage our young, highly energetic dog’s mental and physical needs. He comes home happily exhausted every time. It is obvious that Jody, Dan, and Brittney all love the dogs in their care – because the dogs love them right back.”
– Kari, Artoo’s mom

“Bode loves it here, he knows when he hears the keys jangle on Tu/Th mornings that’s where he’s headed. He sleeps an extra four hours just to catch up on all the fun he has at Doggy Playcare!”
– Margaux

“My husky has been going to Doggy Playcare for about 9 months. She is much calmer at home on her off days now. She also has more confidence being around other people and dogs. Jody, Dan, Brittany and Arielle are wonderful. They take great care of the dogs and make it a safe, clean, fun place for them.”

“About 18 months ago, I adopted a 4 year old Hound/Shepherd mixed breed dog, rescued from the south. She had many bad habits, the worst of which was jumping up on people & things. She was more than I bargained for and I was quite overwhelmed. From the first time I set foot in Doggy Playcare, the advice, assistance & support I’ve received have “saved the day.” Through their training sessions, daycare and their overall encouragement, my dog is better adjusted and much easier to live with. They even added a top to one of their doors because my dog sailed right over it. They treat each dog individually and take great care and concerned for each dog’s well being. I’m so glad to have their help available.”
– Nancy S.

“Thanks to Jody’s caring and patient manner both Bailey and I are growing in confidence together.  Jody has a wealth of knowledge about dogs and their behavior that I have found both fascinating and highly useful.  In between lessons, she is available by e-mail, text or phone for any questions that arise and she is very prompt in responding to messages.  I would highly recommend Jody and Doggy Playcare for anyone who wishes to learn more about their dog and how to be the kind of leader he/she needs.”

“In the several months since completing our training, Duke has grown into an obedient and eager to please dog that is a pleasure to be around. None of this would be the case if it was not for Jody’s expertise and dedication. I highly recommend Doggy Play Care training to anyone who owns a dog with any behavioral issue.”
– Chris W.

“This place is so great! Our puppy is always so excited to go in to see her buddies, and the staff is fantastic.”
