In the end, we opted to get the dogs their own nanny (Rena) rather than use any daycare services. We have also decided that this is the best option for when we’re away. We did check out a number of perfectly acceptable boarding options around Bangkok but as nowhere appeared to walk the dogs, we felt that they’d be better off in their own home, with their own sofa, able to run around in their own garden and with Rena looking after them.
The other quite significant reason was the cost. As with everything ‘western’ in Bangkok, it’s obtainable but at a price! Both daycare and boarding appeared more expensive than in the UK.
The places we checked out were:
Address: 80/1 Rattana road, Khwaeng Bang Kapi, Khet Huai Khwang, Bangkok 10310
Open: Monday – Sunday 9AM – 5PM

I sent Chris here before I even arrived as they had an open day, and I do also follow their updates on social media. This looks like doggy heaven – a nice outdoor space, a pool, loads of games and staff who just seem to love playing with dogs! All the dogs run around together so I guess your dog needs to have a good level of behaviour towards other dogs – I’m not sure Charles & Siale would be that welcome with their boisterous zoomies!
Address: 71 Ekkamai 1 Alley, Khwaeng Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110

This is very close to where we live and has a nice garden area for the dogs to run around in. This is another facility where all the dogs run and play together but they did also have some individual kennels. The dogs that were together looked like they were having a whale of a time! Hiro, the guy that runs it is very nice and also seems to have connections with other boarders/pet parks so is worth knowing!

This place is out towards Bang Wa so a bit of a mission for us! But if you’re living on the other side of the river then it could be a good option. Dogs are housed individually, in various different sizes of kennels. There was actually quite a big room that we were looking at for ours which looked ok. The dogs get let out to play in the garden several times a day, I can’t remember the exact details but there seemed to be a good routine. All the dogs in there looked happy and well looked after, and it’s run by proper dog lovers! There is also a playground and café that is accessible for a small fee.
