Turning a bland concrete warehouse into a flourishing doggy day care wasn’t going to be easy but Urban Dogs owners', Leanne Coste and Corey Martin, had their hearts set on providing a quality doggy day care where doggy parents could feel confident leaving their dogs.
Leanne and Corey began the search for a location for Urban Dogs. It was a whole year before they found a place that was “just right”. A place that would not only become Leanne and Corey’s dream come true but would also fulfill the dreams of many dog owners who wanted a high standard doggy day care they could trust. Urban Dogs opened its doors on the 20th August 2012.
After 18 months of opening and in response to customer feedback, Urban Dogs introduced farm trips and a swimming club to the list of services provided by Urban Dogs.
Urban Dogs continued to grow and provide an awesome service to their dog parents, but in 2017 Leanne and Corey decided to move on to new ventures. Sisters Leanne Andersen and Kerry Johnstone just happened to be looking for a business just like Urban Dogs and they purchased the business in January 2018. Having the "old Leanne" and the "new Leanne" did prove a bit confusing in the early days but we got there!
Leanne and Kerry retained most of the old team and today the Urban Dogs Squad has doubled in size in response to our ever increasing dog numbers, and the extra services we offer. The Squad are dedicated to making sure your pups have the best time whilst they are in our care, so you can get on with your day knowing your babies are safe and happy.
Stop in anytime to have a chat with Leanne and Kerry, or any of the Urban Dogs Squad, we would love to meet you and you pups!
