The ultimate day out for dogs!

Dorchester's First Ever Adventure Park & Day Care Centre Built Just For Dogs

The well-being of our canine guests is our top priority. This is why we visit all new dogs at home before they are invited to join the pack. We’ll complete a comprehensive behaviour evaluation to ensure only friendly, sociable dogs that are suited to day care are accepted.


Our specially designed environment will provide a safe place for your dog to explore whilst providing lots of fun, social interaction, play & development. Fully secure with heated log cabins, splash pool, ball pit, sensory garden, agility equipment & games.


Our Doggie Bus offers a safe, comfortable & convenient Pick-up & Drop-off service to ensure maximum play time at the centre. No need to worry about muddy paws on the sofa either, our on-site shower means we can provide a warm wash & towel dry before heading home.


Our dedicated team are committed to providing the best possible care for your dog. All staff have certifications in Canine First Aid as well as Dog Behaviour. Our relationship with a number of Local Veterinary Practices ensures a veterinary professional is always on-hand.

We understand that dogs are not just pets...


Set in the glorious West Dorset countryside, a specially built canine paradise, where all friendly dogs are welcome; no matter how big or small.

Hectic work schedules and busy family lives make it increasingly difficult to find the time to provide your dog with the right balance of exercise, play & socialisation.

That’s exactly why Joey’s Doggie Day Care was built, to offer not just a walk in the park but a whole day of fun.

Meet the Team

We truly are a family run business! Tom & Sara Buxton & Julie (Sara's Mum) with Bella, her 2 year old Westiepoo.
Tom Buxton
Tom Buxton
Tom & Joey were inseparable for over 13 years, their bond sowing the seed for the Doggie Day Care Centre. It wasn’t until Joey’s sudden passing that Tom & Sara realised life is short & that they should make their dream a reality by building the ultimate dog park dedicated to his memory.
Sara Buxton
Sara Buxton
Sara has always loved animals of all shapes & sizes. Always outdoors, she was the first to jump in muddy puddles & climb trees when she was young. When she met Tom & Joey, she discovered a natural affinity with dogs. Her calm, positive nature lending itself perfectly to maintaining a balanced & happy pack.
Julie Rowlan
Julie Rowlan
