Dog Daycare

We’re here to help you give your dog a chance to play! We separate canine guests into great groups by size and temperament. We have lots of space to play and rest, inside and out, that is set up for the comfort for our canine guests. We keep our numbers lower for a better experience. Daycare is open 7 AM to 7 PM Monday through Friday. Nightcare, drop-off, and pick-up almost every day.

When you bring your pup to Red Rover for day care, you’ll leave knowing your dog will have a day full of healthy activity and rest, interacting with other dogs with individualized human attention. At the end of the day, you’ll pick up a happy dog who is ready to relax with you!

Red Rover is conveniently located near I-40 between the airport and downtown Nashville.

Day Care Packages

Once your dog is approved for daycare, we offer a number of daycare packages that offer great savings if you plan to bring your dog on a regular basis. Below are a few other things to note regarding our daycare packages:

  • Every dog must complete at least 2 initial visits prior to package purchase to ensure a package is a good investment for everyone, especially your dog. A few dogs don’t LOVE daycare.
  • Packages expire 1 or 3 months from purchase and are non-refundable.
  • Multiple dogs may use visits from a single package.
  • For the comfort of our canine guests, we offer only full day visits though you may pick up and drop off at any time.
