We are! Welcome to Doggy Day Care Brisbane. Do you live and work in or near the City, South Brisbane or West End? No need to leave your pooch at home any longer. We understand that our fur friends experience boredom and social isolation from spending long hours at home by themselves, so we have created an activity based day care. Think normal day care but for furry kids! They'll return home happy, balanced, attentive, obedient and worn out.
Doggy Day Care has a fantastic central location in West End and our local village theme is "your dog's backyard."
We're reinventing Doggy Day Care and we look forward to being a new and active member of our West End Community. We even hold social activities for our humans and fur kids to enjoy together!
Founder Kaz Kelly
My journey to open DDCB has a been a natural one as my life has been surrounded by animals and I learnt early on the importance of their welfare. I started my career as a Detector Dog Handler for Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service at Brisbane International Airport. I retired with my Beagle Saige and became an RSPCA Inspector where my training continued in animal behaviour and handling.
The travel bug has itself firmly planted in me so in 2014 I took an opportunity and moved to Cambodia to run a not for profit animal rescue before returning to work as an investigator for both local council and the Federal Government.
In November 2017 while running in the state elections I realised how many dogs in South Brisbane needed a place to call their own and from this DDCB was born. We opened on April 7th 2018.
I have a keen interest in the links between domestic violence and animal cruelty and I have served as a board member on two organisations in the sector.
I am currently the lead Senate candidate for the Animal Justice Party and sit on the QLD committee. In my limited spare time you can catch me (if you can - get it!?) racing go-karts and I recently represented Australia in the Sodi World Finals in Italy.
I live in West End and I am a proud fur mum to Saige, Guess, Lil
