Daycare

At Mother Pupper we are more than just a doggy daycare. We incorporate creative enrichment, decompression, play, manners, confidence & relationship building in every day spent with your dog.  We are observant of body language, transparent with you, and are quick to mention any challenges or changes that arise with your pup.

If your dog is accepted, we will assign you the same day (or multiple days) to come each week. Keeping it consistent aids in building your dog's confidence, helps us track their progress, and keeps dogs from constantly having to navigate new groups.

Our staff are highly educated on dog behavior and fair dog management skills, with monthly continued education to further their knowledge. All staff work a regular schedule every day of the week (M-F) so they can form valuable and long lasting relationships with the dogs in our care. We work with each dog on their social interactions with other dogs, people, and general manners to continue to help them grow and be the very best companion they can be.

 

Enrichment Group

Smaller group drop off socials for the dogs who need a little more one-on-one with a trainer.

 

Enrichment Group provides additional structure, and has an average dog to staff ratio of just four to one with a cap at 10 dogs. Dogs participate in training games to assist in basic obedience and impulse control, treadmill work, agility games, confidence building activities, and have carefully monitored socials with the other pups in the group.

Enrichment Group is every Saturday from 8:30am to 1:30pm.

 

It is recommended to enroll in 4 sessions minimum for your pup to get the most out of their time with us. 

 

Enrichment Group attendees cannot be aggressive towards people or other dogs.

Zoe

Co-Owner + Trainer

Prior to owning, Zoe worked at our facility for over a year as the Head Trainer. Zoe's background includes horse training, extensive rescue volunteer work, and years of dog training experience through her other biz, Rascal Training. She knew at a young age that she wanted to pursue a career in the dog industry and is enthused to bring a new approach to the doggy daycare industry with Mother Pupper. 

 

Zoe is consistently continuing her education via seminars, shadowing other trainers, and extensive research on how the canine mind works. She is currently working towards a certification in Canine Nutrition. 

Haley

Co-Owner + Operations Manager

Haley is a Portland native, born and raised. Prior to owning, she worked at our facility for 6 years as a receptionist, K9 handler, and manager. To say the least, her love of dogs of all shapes and sizes has been lifelong. Ever since she was a little girl she had the habit of fangirling over every dog she saw, asking the obvious question, “Can I pet your dog?!” 

 

When she is not fawning over her dog friends, Haley loves the arts, specifically theater and painting. She studied Acting for two years and graduated with the class of 2020 at Portland Actors Conservatory, something she has always dreamed of achieving. Haley hopes to have it all now, working at Mother Pupper by day and pursuing the arts post shift. She is happy to offer her paintings for sale in our retail area and online store!

Facility

We are located on Alberta St, between 12th and 13th streets, in NE Portland. Our location offers convenient access to 1-5, the Fremont Bridge, Martin Luther King Boulevard, and NE 33rd Ave. 

Our play space is over 2800 square feet and was constructed specifically for dogs to play safely in. This includes 1000 square feet of spacious outdoor play areas used to potty, sunbathe, and to enjoy the fresh air.

Play structures are available both inside and outside to jump on, run around, duck under, or tunnel through.  We also have collapsible fences we use to combine or divide the play environments as needed throughout the day, allowing us to better suit the needs of the dogs in attendance.​

Our facility is enjoyable in every season!  In the winter, our heated floors keep everyone warm inside, while our outdoor heat lamps and assorted doggie sweaters keep everybody warm outside. The partially covered outdoor area keeps them dry in rain and shaded in the sun. In the summer, we have a well-ventilated indoors with lots of air conditioners, air purifiers, and fans as well as wading pools and misters outside to keep our furry clients cool.

Mother Pupper prides itself on our commitment to keeping the space clean and healthy for your beloved pet. Extensive cleaning is done nightly with veterinary-grade cleaners and disinfectants. These products have been carefully selected to be both environmentally sustainable and harmless to the dogs when they return in the morning.
