Potty Outside

Healthy Hound Playground is Maryland and Northern Virginia’s Premier Dog Daycare, Boarding Kennel & Grooming Salon & Spa dedicated to providing your four-legged family member with an exceptional, safe, and fun home away from home with regular outdoor potty breaks.

As one of Washington DC’s most trusted dog daycare, boarding, and grooming facilities, your dog will be sure to have plenty of space to run and play safely with constant supervision. Regular outdoor potty breaks help reinforce at-home habits and our spacious kennels afford evenings spent in total relaxation, while our overnight attendants give parents peace of mind.

Your pup can enjoy a spa day any day! At the end of a day of play, an overnight stay, or just because it’s their favorite day of the week to get a haircut. Our experienced and tenured groomers will have your dog looking and feeling fresh and fabulous.

Healthy Hound Playground is proud to offer two locations. Our Sterling, VA facility serves the cities of Ashburn, Reston, and Herndon, and is a short trip down Rt. 28 from Chantilly and Centreville. Our Rockville, MD facility is central to Gaithersburg, Bethesda, Silver Spring, and Germantown. We look forward to meeting you and your pup!

Daycare is a great way for your pup to learn positive socialization behavior, get much needed exercise, as well as have companionship and stimulation. With 12 hours of continuous cage-free daycare, your dog will never be crated unless you request lunch or a break. Regular outdoor walks will ensure Fido has ample opportunity to maintain potty training. All of our experienced attendants are personally trained by our on-staff animal behaviorist.

Your canine best friends are treated like family while they stay with us, whether they’re visiting for Doggie Daycare or enjoying our Boarding services while you’re away. Our facility features spacious canine cottages that allow pups from the same family to board together if desired, as well as provide ample room to place large beds, blankets, and toys to remind them of home. Onsite attendants are here 24/7 so that your dog will never be alone.
