We are a small, family-run dog daycare centre based in beautiful countryside just outside Edinburgh. Our daycare is the ideal solution for dog owners who don’t want their pets to spend the day left at home alone. Here they’ll be running around outside with other dogs, getting plenty of walks and lots of attention from us. Our aim is that each dog has the best possible experience when they're here with us.

So what makes us different?

Boggs Dogs has masses of outdoor space but what also makes us stand out is our personal, family feel. We have a great team of dog-loving staff, all of whom have dogs themselves and love working here. We take a small number of dogs and meet each one before enrolling them to make sure they’re going to fit in. Our specially-designed smallholding is perfect for all breeds and sizes, with large paddocks (where we've created a sensory garden), rambling woodland for walks twice a day and heated indoor areas.

Bespoke Services

Every dog is different and they all have different needs. Whether they’re boisterous or timid, an excitable puppy or an older pet struggling to keep up, we can give your dog the right environment so that it’s happy and comfortable. We want them to positively thrive when they’re with us. This is where keeping our numbers low helps. We can get to know and form a bond with every dog in our care.

Boggsdogs was our first experience leaving our dog Breagha so it was a big deal for us  Mel and her excellent team were so friendly and welcoming it made it so much easier knowing our dog would be surrounded by such warmth. The dogs have a lovely environment to eat, sleep and play in - it looked so much fun! Our dog came home tired and happy and settled back in without any problems at all. Mel's updates were really considerate and much appreciated. I cannot thank the team enough and will definitely be using Boggsdogs again soon.

Boggs Dogs has been amazing for our Springer, Lola. When she was a puppy she was nervous around other dogs but the team at Boggs are great. They were supportive and consistent with her and in less than a month of being there her behaviour around other dogs transformed. She loves Boggs and all the exercise she gets there. I love all the space and the family feel. A real find.

Couldn't recommend this place enough, great workers very friendly and my dog always comes back knackered. They even brush him so he looks so good when he gets dropped off

We were delighted to find Mel and Boggs Dogs. The space available for walks and play is huge so Orla, our young Vizsla was very well exercised. It is the perfect place for an energetic dog. We’ve enjoyed the photo and video updates. I can't recommend Mel highly enough.

Both my Newfie’s love it at Boggs Dogs, they’re so well cared for and come home worn out after a lovely day of walking and playing. The communication is great and any questions I have are quickly answered. It’s an amazing place and I’d recommend to anyone.

Our wirehaired Hungarian vizsla goes on his holidays to Boggs Dogs and I know that he has an awesome time and is in amazingly good hands. I can't decide if he's just exhausted when we pick him up from all the playing or if he's actually a bit sad to be back at home, he loves it that much! Couldn't recommend Mel and her team more highly.

Our dog Spot has been coming here since Boggs Dogs was born and he absolutely loves it! Mel and the team are great - and their facilities are getting swankier year on year.

- Peter Jinks

Amos our whippet is quite sensitive but has settled in so well with Boggs. He really enjoys his days there and the ladies are all fantastic. We know he's in good hands when we can't be with him. We loved that there was a mix of walks, playing outside and some room indoors when needed. Amos loves his cuddles and gets plenty! Only thing I would love even more would be some more pictures and videos

- Magali Anne

Winnie attends Boggs Dogs 5 days a week while we work and she absolutely loves it! The safe space they have to run and play is fantastic. Mel & all the staff are lovely and clearly genuinely love dogs. I have often said to friends that if I was to return in another life - I would want to be a Boggs Dog! Thank you for caring for Winnie so well.

Very warm and welcoming environment for all breeds of pooch. I visited today with all the snow and it was just beautiful. Acres of space with woodlands make this a doggy paradise.
