Boarding is 24 hours 7 days a week and is a completely kennel-free slumber party. It is $45 per night (1/2 off for each additional dog) and includes day care. Because they are in a free-roaming group setting, a one day evaluation is required (free of charge) to ensure they are well-socialized and possess the ability to live in harmony with the rest of the pack. Once they’re part of the family, just bring some food and a jammin’ mix-tape and go on your vacation worry-free.

Why People Love Doggy Rotten



Doggy Rotten Daycare is locally owned and operated in the heart of Nashville. We are not a chain doggie daycare, nor do we ever plan to be. This establishment was created to provide dog owners of Davidson County a place where love and compassion are the values by which we measure success.



We use only non-toxic and environmentally friendly cleaning products. No one will ever walk into Doggy Rotten Daycare and see the place unkempt or unorganized. Additionally, WE DO NOT SMELL! How many doggie daycares can say that, really? Everyone who works at Doggy Rotten Daycare is meticulous in keeping the place so clean the Pope could eat off the floor.



A client of ours put it best when she said that she knows the instant her pug, Bunk, realizes that he is coming to Doggy Rotten by how he jolts to life with excitement in the car and won’t settle down until he walks through our doors. Never bored and never without friends, our dogs truly love us, which makes their owners love us even more.
