First and Only…
Outdoor and Indoor…
Day-care and Night-care
Play-care… for dogs.
Dog-ma Daycare and Boarding for Dogs offers carefully supervised group play and loving care for friendly, fun-loving pups. Our 7,000 sq. ft., dog-park-sized environment is DC's ONLY place for dogs to play outdoors, as well as in right downtown!
At Dog-ma, we provide exercise, love, and canine companionship, 12 hours a day for daycare and round-the-clock for boarding, in a setting unique to the city.
The District of Columbia designated DOG-MA ALONE to allow outdoor play - permanently! - when creating its laws governing dog care facilities in 2005.
How Else is Dog-ma Better?
Space Dog-ma's 7,000 sq foot, secure indoor/outdoor facility offers real room to run, so your dog isn't cooped up all day inside.
Value Compare 12 hours of daycare activity to a 30-minute walk on a leash. Compare our constant "doggy caretaker" attention, activity and love to the isolation and inactivity of kennels or brief visits from a pet-sitter.
Vision Dog-ma was DC's first doggy daycare. We'll always be the city's only place to play outdoors and in. There's nothing else like us.
Convenience Dog-ma is located right downtown on Capitol Hill, just off the I 295/395 freeway, and just over the 14th St Bridge from Arlington and Alexandria in Northern Virginia, and 5 min from the Maryland line. We're 15 min from Dupont Circle and 10 min from Georgetown in Washington DC. Best of all, there's always room to pull up out front on busy mornings - we'll greet you right at the gate!
Transparency Unlike some facilities that whisk your dog to a back room somewhere, Dog-ma's play-yards are the first thing you see. Weather permitting, the Pack's in full view - human and canine alike!
Safety Dog-ma meticulously screens dogs to make sure they'll fit in with our Pack, personally evaluating every one for temperament, health, and medical requirements. Dog-ma isn't for just any dog.
Commitment We're mature, loving professionals, invested in the business with the highest possible standards. We have live-in staff who call Dog-ma home. Most of our employees have been with us for years, and know our clients' dogs like their own. This isn't just a job to us.
So...give your dog a RUN for the money!
Dogma has been named Best Doggie Daycare - again! - in Washington City Paper's Readers Poll!!
