About Us

In February of 2004, DogDayz (the first facility of its kind in the Indy area) was opened by the Cottrell family.  Brian, the Head Mutt, spent years in sales and never wanted to leave his dog Gabi at any of the existing “kennels” in the Indy area.  A place was built, employees were hired, and activities for the dogs were designed and put in place for Gabi and the other dogs in our community.  Brian wanted to develop a place where he would leave Gabi and all of the other “dog wimps” out there as well.

DogDayz was at the forefront of dog care in the Indy area and continues to be to this day.  Our open playroom DayCamp lets dogs play all day long. Our Training has been recognized by the area vets for years as the place to bring your dog to be socialized and trained in the proper manner.  The Grooming services are second to none, with the Director of Grooming having over 16 years of professional grooming experience. And our Boarding is second to none in not only the quality of care but the All-Inclusive pricing policy we offer with all walks, playtime, and butt scratches for one price.

Even with Gabi’s passing of cancer in May of 2009, DogDayz’s services and everything we do is based upon what we would do for Gabi.  If you would like to read more about her 3 ½ year battle with cancer, please click here to read her story that inspired other people and vets alike to fight against this horrible disease.

We do hope you will come in, tour the facility, and speak to the staff to get a better idea of who we are, what we do, and why we do it. We have an open-door policy, so anytime we are open, we are available to give tours.

We are so thrilled to celebrate our 20th Anniversary this year. Thank you to all who have supported us along the way. We truly love each and every one of your dogs and hope we can continue to care for your fur babies.
