About Desert Dog

Providing Dog Daycare and Boarding services in Salt Lake City since 2006.

Desert Dog has been locally owned and operated since March 2006. We knew how hard it was to work long hours and come home exhausted to our dogs who were so excited to see us and so anxious to play. We knew we were not alone, so we decided to create a dog oasis - a place where friendly dogs could socialize, wrestle, run and relax, all with human supervision and interaction. Humans who understand dog body language and embrace dog behavior and healthy play. The kind of place we would want our dogs to go to - and that's exactly what we have created! Our local, non-corporate roots, professional staff, approach and methods give Desert Dog Daycare a uniqueness that has passed the test of time.

    My FAVORITE daycare to take my pup to. This place checks everything on the list. Great customer service, they treat my dog well, and the pricing is great! My dog has been to a handful of doggie daycares before and how he reacts when I drop him off really tell me something. I've taken him to a place where he was scared to walk back through the door. But at Desert, he's always excited and eager to see the staff. They do a 10 lunch pass for $170, which comes out to $17 per day of Daycare. That's a great deal! You can't really find many other places that will beat that deal! Other neat little things of note: They have a viewing room where you can watch surveillance footage of the dogs at any time and they can host a cute little dog birthday parties for your pup for a small cost.

    Our dog Porter loves Desert Dog Daycare. The staff is very helpful and attentive to Porter's needs, and he comes home happy and tired. The pricing is reasonable for daycare and grooming service. They also were happy to use the medicated shampoo the vet gave us when Porter had sensitive skin issues. Thanks, Desert Dog!

    My Newfoundland Titan is attached to my hip but really likes his friends at Desert Dog Daycare. The employee's are super nice to greet and welcome him in every time we go there. Titan is a picky eater and takes supplements for his hips and the employee's are great to work with him and know his routine. We mainly board him here while we go out of town and it comforting to know he is getting a little vacation of his own while at Desert Dog Daycare.

We love Desert Dog! We started taking our girl Joanie to daycare to help her build social skills around other dogs, and the relaxed fun environment has improved her behavior sooo much! The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is chill, and any time I check the cams everyone is happy and supervised. Joanie always comes home tired and content. Whenever we have to board her we are totally at ease knowing she's having a great, safe time. We're so glad to be able to bring her here!

Desert Dog Daycare is awesome! Our dog absolutely loves it, and the staff are friendly, professional, and really care for our dog. They send us pictures and report on all the fun that he has during the day. Very thankful that we discovered this place!

Ontario is so happy visiting Desert Dog! He usually does not leave my side - but when I drop him off he happily follows the staff to meet the other dogs. And he smells good and is so soft after they bathe him! thanks!

So glad my friend referred me! On the first day I turned in paperwork while they introduced Zeus to the rest of the dogs. Then they had me leave him for at least 4 hours to make sure his temperament was good. I was a little nervous but I got a text and some pictures with an update on my pup later that day saying that he was doing great and making friends. I ended up leaving him longer. Such a great staff! Can't wait to bring Zeus back!
