Dog Daycare


Denver & Lakewood Doggie Daycare Group Fun

Need a place for your pup while you’re at work or out for the day? K-9 Castle provides a safe, fun doggie daycare for your pups to hangout and play at two locations in Denver & Lakewood.

Both Locations Have 3 Indoor Play Areas!

Lakewood (Colfax) Doggie Daycare
Our 3 indoor areas are a great way for your pup to still get the exercise they need while staying warm and dry during our colder seasons! The Dragon’s Lair is our biggest indoor area which is typically used for our larger dog group. The Dragon’s Lair is equipped with a swing, ramps and tons of toys and space to run around or relax on our cot beds under the heater. Both the Knight’s Loft and the Puppies Palace are about the same in size. These areas house smaller play equipment for our smalls and mediums to enjoy as well as room to wrestle and play chase!

Denver (S. Santa Fe) Doggie Daycare
Tower 1 & 2 is our biggest indoor area which is typically used for our larger dog group. Demene is our 2nd largest and the Donjon is our smallest play areas. Each area has beds, ramps and other items for our guests to enjoy. All indoor areas are heated and air conditioned.

Dog Daycare Nap Time
Nap time is from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. for all pups Monday- Saturday. Pups can get over stimulated so nap times are a perfect break for the pups to relax, nap in the controlled temperature of our Bed Chambers and have their sack lunches they brought.

Both Locations Have 2 Shaded Outdoor Areas!

Our Denver dog daycare location also has a waterfall and pond! During the nice, warm days, our pups will be outside enjoying their play time. Both areas outside are shaded, have access to drinking water, pools, misting systems and play equipment. A play attendant is with the pups at all time while in group play. Webcams are also available during weekdays from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

What does a doggie daycare day look like?
Each individual pup can have a different daycare experience. Most pups will come to daycare and play as much as they can with the other pups, pools, toys, or our play attendants. The other pups use their daycare day to relax by laying out on the cot beds or receiving lots of attention from our play attendants. However, if our play attendant notices any distress in your pup, they may be moved to an indoor area or a room to relax. We treat your pup(s) like royalty or like our own! A happy and relaxed pup means a safe and positive experience.
At 11:45 a.m., the nap time process begins. Pup(s) come in and are placed into their individual rooms. Once all pups are in and accounted for, lights are turned off and they nap/ relax until 2 p.m. At 2 p.m. they are then taken back to their play group and they get to enjoy their time until they are picked up or 6:30 p.m. for boarding bedtime.


Dog Daycare Requirements

Vaccination & Spay/Neuter Policy

All pups visiting K-9 Castle for grooming, daycare or boarding must have proof of up-to-date Rabies, Distemper-Parvo and Bordetella vaccinations. Proof of vaccination can be uploaded to your account via the parent portal or emailed to

Dogs over 1 year of age must also be spayed/neutered before visiting K-9 Castle.

What & What Not to Bring

K-9 Castle provides everything your pup may need to have a great time during their visit, all you’ll need to bring is their food and any medications that they may need administered throughout the day. Medications should be brought in their original packaging, both for prescription and over the counter medications. We also ask that personal toys and belongings stay home to ensure no one’s favorite chew toy or bed-time cuddle buddy gets lost or damaged. 

Please bring lunches or snacks in an air-tight container with your pup’s name on it, or one that you won’t mind us writing on.
