Dogs need mental and physical stimulation to keep a sound mind and stay healthy. PANT Dog Daycare provides love, structured play groups, and a walk for outside time! Dogs will build a sense of security with our dog handlers who are compassionate and confident.

  • Convenient neighborhood location! We don't just work here, we live in the neighborhood! 

  • An afternoon walk for every dog is included for a full day of daycare! No additional charges for activities or feeding. Our experienced dog walkers are able to work with fearful and reactive dogs. 

  • Dogs are sectioned by size and playstyle! As a result, we have a low attendant-to-dog ratio! Your dog gets more attention and personalized care.  

  • Every dog must complete a meet & greet assessment and be approved for daycare!

  • Structured daycare: playtime, walk time, nap time!

  • Dog handlers are trained in steps and evaluated before they are given broader tasks and responsibilities. We have dog trainers on staff and working relationships with professional dog trainers. We properly address separation anxiety, and rambunctious behavior, and promote self-regulation.  

  • Report cards with contextual pictures about their day!

PANT Dog Center

“PANT Dog Center is a gem in the South Philly community! The staff is well trained in handling your dogs with the utmost care. Each dog is treated as an individual, and the facility employs policies to keep everyone safe and having a good time. Unlike other dog daycares, PANT pays close attention to specific behaviors and needs of each dog. Not only does PANT offer excellent service to keep your dog pal engaged during the day, they throw the best parties for dogs in the area! I can highly recommend PANT Dog Center for dogs who thrive in a social environment.”  11/21/2019

Inspired by her volunteer work at Columbus Square Park and SPADO (South Philadelphia Association of Dog Owners), Marlisa opened Pant Dog Center in January of 2018. Her goal was to bring much-needed dog daycare services to our neighborhood, provide a space for professional resources, and be a hub for the dog owners' community. We work with professional dog trainers and dog walkers to constantly learn and provide the best care for your dogs. 

Pant Dog Center is owned and operated by Marlisa. Most of the employees also live in the neighborhood. We are a small neighborhood business providing services and jobs for our community. It was tough, but we made it through a couple of rough years, thanks to our loyal clients. The best part of Pant Dog Center is watching our clients grow. Most of our clients have been attending since they were 6 months old and continue for 5+ years. 

PANT Dog Center is committed to providing a safe space for dogs and their owners for play, learning, and community engagement. We work regularly with our local dog park association as well as the neighborhood civic association.

Support Small Business! Thank you for supporting local neighborhood jobs and small businesses.
In 2022 Pant Dog Center was awarded a Small Business Grant from the Women's Opportunity Resource Center. In 2023 Pant Dog Center was chosen as a Comcast Rise Recipient - a program that supports women and minority owned small businesses. We continue to utilize these resources to maintain our high quality of service and upgrade our facility!

Whipple loves going to daycare and I trust the staff to take care of her and keep her safe and they do a great job. She also has improved her listening skills and patience with other dogs.
