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.

    We love DD! Huxley has been going there for a few years and absolutely loves it. I used to work downtown so Desert Dog was on the way, but now I don’t work or live anywhere near Desert Dog and I still send my dog there. I explored the idea of sending Huxley to another doggie daycare, but I just know it wouldn’t be the same. The staff at Desert Dog is so friendly and attentive I can’t imagine sending my dog anywhere else. Sometimes on my lunch hour, I tune in to get a peak of Huxley on the video cams and there’s always someone near by making sure the dogs are having fun, staying safe and getting the love.

    We love Desert Dog Daycare! Our pup is always excited when we drop her off. This is the perfect place to bring her when I have especially busy periods at work and can't get the amount of exercise in that she needs before or after work. This is also our go-to place for boarding. My daughter loves the cameras so we can check in our dog while we are away. They also do a great job with baths and nail trims and are reasonably priced on everything for the quality service you get.

    Ajax has been a regular at Desert Dog for years. The staff is friendly to the humans and terrific with the dogs. DD has low staff turnover; I take this to be a sign of a well-run day care. They obviously love their canine "students" and I have full trust in everyone there. Highly recommended.

    My partner and I recently moved to Salt Lake from CA and have been taking our ~2yr old husky mix here M-Fri for over one month for daycare and most recently for boarding over the weekend. We tried other daycare facilities and were not happy with the quality of care until coming to desert dog. Our dog usually has endlessly energy but has been coming home everyday exhausted and happy as can be. When we drop her off she is bouncing with excitement to see the staff and get into daycare. We are so happy with desert dog and love the occasional picture they send of our dog enjoying herself at daycare. Lastly, our husky is a picky eater who usually doesn't eat in the morning and they feed her lunch that I bring at no extra cost. Thank you!
