New to Downtown Dog Lounge?

New Dog Evaluations are being held at all DDL locations, to ensure the comfort of dogs during their boarding stays. Please request that your evaluation be scheduled for the primary location that you plan to use for boarding services.

Evaluation slots typically fill up 3 to 4 weeks in advance. Future boarding dates cannot be booked or guaranteed until your dog has completed and passed their New Dog Evaluation. Evaluation cancellations less than 24 hours prior to scheduled evaluation date incur a cancellation fee of $50.

Seattle Doggie Daycare

Dog Daycare is a great way to help your pup socialize with other dogs and give them a fun outlet for their sometimes boundless energy. At Downtown Dog Lounge, we strive to offer the best daycare service in Seattle for both pooch and parent. We ensure safety by providing 24/7 human monitoring, making sure all dogs are vaccinated, and by having each of our pooches undergo an evaluation with one of our staff members to make sure that the environment is right for them. Best of all, you can watch your dog play on our live webcams!

Check out our rates below.  If you are a new client, please visit our New Clients section to get started today!

Daycare Rates

There is a $5 surcharge for daycare without a reservation. You can avoid this fee by making advance reservations by 9pm the night prior to the date booked.
Other fees may apply, such as late pick up, meal fee or holiday surcharge. Please see the additional fees listed below for more information.

Check-in reminder: Airtags, Fi tracking collars and other GPS technology trackers are not allowed in day care parks. They pose a choking hazard and DDL will not cover the cost of damage or replacement. This includes other decorative collar embellishments. Please help us expedite your check in process by properly dressing you dog in their flat quick release collar with name tag and supplied red DDL tag.

Additional Fees

Daycare without a reservation will be assessed a $5 surcharge, and only admitted if we have space. To avoid this fee, make your reservation in advance.

Please note that we will not always be able to accommodate drop-in requests.

Most dogs eat at home before coming to DDL for daycare. If your dog requires a meal during a daycare stay, the fee is $8. Puppies under 6 months, dogs that are boarding overnight and our unlimited package holders are exempt from this fee.

Although we are staffed 24/7/365, we are minimally staffed after normal business hours – Monday-Friday 7:00am – 7:00pm, Weekends 8:00am – 5:00pm.  Lobby hours on holidays are subject to change, but usually 8:00am to 2:00pm. For the safety of all of the dogs in our care, we ask that you pick-up and drop-off during normal business hours if at all possible.

After hours pickup fee is waived for those in the medical community – please contact concierge to make arrangements for early dropoff or late pickup.

Quick-release collars are an extra measure of safety when your pooch is playing with the others. We require the quick-release collar so that we can snap it open in the rare instance that any pups should get a collar caught on their teeth or tangled with another.

Belt buckle style collars do not give us the ability to quickly separate dogs in a situation like this and can present a safety risk. We offer a number of affordable collars and options to store them here if you wish to have a different collar at home. Harnesses are not to be worn in the parks unless specifically recommended by a vet.

Note: Airtags, Fi tracking collars and other GPS technology trackers are not allowed in day care parks because they pose a choking hazard.

Bordetella vaccination is required every 6 months. We offer this vaccination in house for a fee, and will call you before administering it.

Holidays include date ranges over New Years, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Unlimited daycare package holders are not charged holiday fees.

Daycare Holiday Hours: 8 am to 2 pm.
Holiday late pickup fee is $15 (after 2pm)

Puppy Information

We love puppies! For their well-being, we ask that parents wait until they’re at least 10 weeks old before bringing them to us. The time period from 8-10 weeks is a crucial stage in a dog’s life and it is important that they spend as much time bonding with you as possible. For the safety of the other dogs under our care, we require that puppies complete all rounds of Rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella vaccinations before playing in the parks. If they’re still waiting to get their Rabies vaccine we can keep them in our puppy nursery. While here, your pup will learn to walk on a leash, crate train and get lots of love from staff and plenty of Bark Breaks (short potty walks on the leash).

Health & Wellness

If your dog is sick, we kindly ask that you keep them at home until they are no longer contagious. Dogs say hello with their noses and their backends, so some viruses can easily spread in a highly social environment like our daycare and play parks. Please do not bring them in if they are showing signs of illness or diarrhea. If your dog has visited the vet within 10 days prior to your arrival, please let our concierge know so they can look for signs of illness during their stay. We reserve the right to turn away any sick dogs coming into our facilities for the well-being of the other dogs in our care.

Downtown Dog Lounge reserves the right to change rates and services at any time without prior notice.
