Dogs deserve Daycare too! We understand that a full working day may be too long for your Dog or Puppy to be home alone without potty breaks, exercise, or socialization with others. That's why we're here - to help our furry friends in Fairfax and Loudoun County enjoy the many advantages of regular Doggie Daycare. Your four-legged friend will enjoy a full day of continuous cage-free Doggy Day Care with both human and canine companions. With 3 large separate play areas totaling over 3,500 square feet, your dog is paired with dogs of similar activity level and size. Regular outdoor potty breaks will help keep your dog from having accidents at home and reinforce his potty training. Canine-cots are spread throughout the daycare rooms for dogs to rest whenever they feel the need to take a break from play. Dog Daycare is a great way for your pups to learn positive socialization behaviors, get much needed exercise, as well as have companionship during times doggie moms and dads may need to be away from home. Dogs of all ages and activity levels will enjoy coming for a day of fellowship and friends at Healthy Hound.

Day Boarding

If your dog does well with humans but for any reason isn't a candidate for group play we offer an alternative that we call 'day boarding'. Your dog can come for the day and stay in a large individual canine cottage, go out for longer outdoor potty breaks, and perhaps do an activity such as the treadmill or outdoor stroll. The cost for day boarding is the same as regular day care.

Our Amenities:

  • Cage-Free Daycare Environment (no Kennel time)
  • Regular Outdoor Potty Breaks
  • 3 Separate Play Areas
  • Cushioned Rubber Flooring
  • Custom Activities
  • Experienced Staff Members
  • Behaviorist & Dog Trainer


We provide tours by appointment daily between the hours of 10am and 4pm. For all tours we ask that you kindly leave the pups at home as we will be taking you into the back of the house where the dogs are freely playing in day care.

Note: Due to the upcoming Holiday we will not be providing Tours from Thursday, 6/29 through Wednesday, 7/5. Thank you for your understanding!
