  • We’re happy to offer pick-up and drop-off services from your home either a la carte or as part of a package of Day Care visits! A la carte, we can offer a $25 flat rate for all DC destinations. Our day care transportation service area can be found here and information about packages that include transportation is available below.!

On Demand Daily Rate $$$

Our “On Demand” rate structure is for customers who want the most flexibility in scheduling their visits. It allows your pup to visit Day Care on any day you’d like, though that flexibility does present the highest cost per visit. Reservations are not required, but they are strongly encouraged because we are frequently at capacity.

Pre-Paid “Committed Customer” Packages $$

If your pup loves coming to Day Care and you’d prefer a lower rate, we offer packages of visits for purchase by “Committed Customers.” The bundles of visits lower the cost per visit accordingly, and visits can be used on whatever days you prefer!

Pre-paid Monthly Packages $

If you’ll be needing Day Care for you pup on a very regular and predictable schedule, you can further lower your cost per visit by committing to a set schedule every week! If you commit to the same two, three, or four days per week (a Monday / Wednesday / Friday schedule, for example) you’ll be able to take advantage of our lowest rates. We also have an unlimited day care option. These packages are paid for up front, and purchased at the end of each month for use the following month. Choose your package carefully: Patrick’s Pet Care is closed for day care any time the federal government closes for a national holiday or a weather related emergency.
