We are proud to boast that we are Ireland’s first ever pet resort. We monitor every aspect of your pets health, exercise routine, eating habits and behaviour. This means all aspects of their care are catered for under our guidance and supervision.

Sometimes the best medicine is the unconditional love from your pet 

Your pets happiness and lifelong health depends on how well their natural needs and instincts are being fulfilled.

Our Happy Customers

"Bertie has been a regular at Gym Dog for nearly 1.5 years. He adores it there. When we first adopted him, he was hyper and was hard to deal with in our home. Thankfully, Gym Dog saved our sanity and gave Bertie that mental and physical exertion that he needs. We now have a (mostly) calm dog in our home. Thank you to all the wonderful staff there."

"We started taking Lola to Gym Dog in 2021, Lola loves to run and at a fast speed. We met Des and explained we wanted her to run freely and come home tired which she does every time! All the Gym Dog girls are amazing and so caring towards Lola. Lola can’t wait to get out the car when we arrive (sometimes even through the car window!) and nearly wags herself in half every time she sees the girls. We couldn’t recommend Gym Dog daycare and boarding enough, a proper doggy paradise!"

"My Alsatian Black German Shepard, Pablo, enjoys every single moment spent at Gym Dog , he made friends and always give kisses to the girls who are looking after them . This means a lot! And the most important thing is that he’s tired when is at home and we can all have a peaceful night sleep!"
