In operation since March of 2006, we are a locally owned and operated dog daycare and boarding facility in Salt Lake City. Before opening Desert Dog, we too, worked long hours away from our dogs, only to come home exhausted to our dogs who were only too excited to see us and so anxious to play. We knew that other people had to be facing the same dilemma and decided to create a doggie oasis - a place where friendly dogs could socialize, wrestle, run and relax, all with human supervision and interaction. Humans who understand and embrace dog behavior and a healthy pack structure. The kind of place we would want our dogs to go to - and that's exactly what we have created!
Our dogs have many roles, they are our best friends, our companions, our kids, our co-pilots, our defenders - at Desert Dog we allow them to shed those roles and just be dogs. Dogs who love to run, play, chase and wrestle; dogs who love to splash around in the pool, stretch out in the sun or relax in the shade under a tree.
Dogs are much happier socializing in a fun and stimulating atmosphere with lots of love and interaction rather than being left home alone. And just as exercise is vital to a long and healthy human life, it is necessary for our dogs as well. By allowing them to exert their natural energy in a safe and positive way they will be less inclined to engage in destructive or anxious behaviors such as chewing, digging, barking, etc. when they are at home, making for a calm and relaxing evening for both you and your dog.
By allowing our dogs to behave like dogs makes for happier and more well adjusted best friends, companions, kids, co-pilots and defenders.
Whether playing a game of chase or King of the Mountain, running through tunnels, climbing on or under playground equipment or just lounging after a dip in the pool in a safe, clean and supervised environment. Your pooch will have a dog-gone great time at daycare. Nap time and lunchtime are also available for those dogs whose parents request it.
Spacious private quarters will give your dog just the good nights rest he/she will need after a day in the Desert. Elevated beds keep your furry friend cozy and comfortable. We have plenty of blankets and toys for our overnight campers, but feel free to bring anything from home that might make things even cozier! Every camper will get a bedtime treat before bedding down (as long as parents approve!).
Overnight campers must pass a temperament evaluation and spend a day of day care with us before reserving an overnight stay. This allows us to evaluate your dog and make sure he/she will have an enjoyable stay with us and it gives your dog the chance to get to know us, our facility and the other dogs. Dogs who spend the day and go home before they come back for an overnight experience considerably less stress.
We feature medium (4x4x6), large (4x6x6 or 5x5x6) and even extra large (5x5x10) kennels to fit the needs of all of our overnight guests.

"My dog Charley went there the short period of time we lived in Utah! It was amazing, the staff was amazing and my dog loved it! Also, I love it how when it's your dogs first day (temperament test) I love how they let you watch thru the camera to see how your dog did! If I move back to Utah, I will definitely be bringing my dogs Back here!" - Ashley H.
"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." - Matt P.
