Welcome to Alpha Dog Daycare and Boarding

There may be other doggie daycares in Portland, Oregon with cuter names, but none work harder than Alpha Dog staff at ensuring a happy, healthy tiring day for your dog.  Alpha Dog Doggie Daycare isn’t just for big breeds. Whether you have an active dog or a lazy dog, a Pug or a Newfoundland, Alpha Dog will make sure your pooch has his (or her) day. 

We view dogs as a member of the family.
As our motto says, Alpha Dog Daycare & Boarding is a place “where every dog is a top dog.” 

Happy Dogs


We offer full service daycare and boarding.

We have training classes and a retail space in which we stock natural & organic treats and food. 

We have a dog wash and grooming facility.

We can accommodate any dog, from Chihuahua to Great Dane that is socially trained.  Depending on the daily mix of the dog pack, we are capable of separating dogs by weight or temperament, too.

Alpha Dog is dedicated to giving your doggie a safe, clean, fun place to play, run and socialize with their canine friends. And they certainly will have a blast at Alpha Dog. Our facility makes your dog feel right at home with padded floors for maximum comfort while frolicking, and cute murals on the wall that transform the industrial space into a park-like setting. There’s even a fire hydrant to make “going” seem more outdoorsy.

Alpha Dog is committed to doggie/parent happiness. Our dog-loving staff aims to bring a smile to every dog owner’s face when they are greeted at pickup time by a happy, tired dog. You can be sure that we'll treat your precious canine companion as one of our own. David, the leader of the human pack teaches the staff to facilitate and supervise play that each dog can enjoy safely.

We are canine loving people who cannot resist that happy bark, and wagging tail, that comes with unconditional love from our doggie friends. In Portland, Oregon, where it seems everyone has a dog, it’s now even better to be a member of the Alpha Dog pack “where every dog is a top dog.” To find out more and enroll your best friend in doggie daycare, fill out our application and check out our doggie friendly policies.
