Day Care

We pride ourselves with originating the idea of a Doggy Daycare in the Bangor/Brewer area.  Since 1995, we have operated a Doggy Day Care Monday thru Friday from 8am to 5pm.  Our original idea was to provide a place for working owners and owners of energetic dogs to leave their dogs to burn off extra energy.  We took our training room, added a large outside fenced area, wading pools, and agility equipment.

Holly Staples is Bear Brooks Daycare Director.  Holly has a wide variety of experience with large and small dogs.  Her stability around animals makes her an exceptional Doggy Day Care Operator.

Holly and her assistants play games with the dogs, celebrate birthdays, and supervise all group play at all times. Your dog romps about with other dogs compatible with their size and energy level.

Dogs may go home damp from the wading pools, or have drool on them from playing with other dogs, but they always go home tired and happy!!


Each dog is interviewed and evaluated before they are allowed in with the play group.  Holly introduces each dog slowly as not to overwhelm them.  Holly will observe your dog closely and report to you at the end of the day on his or her progress. 

Our Day Care is set up with certain days of the week set aside for certain types of dogs. To see more about what that means, see our “Day Care Schedule” tab under the “Day Care” menu option.

We have the Doggy Day Care Application at the bottom of this page for you to fill out and we also have our New Client Form under the â€śDownloadable Forms” for boarding. It’s a multi-purpose consent form for any service in our building. This will need to be filled out if you and/or your dog have never been at Bear Brook Kennel before!

Daycare has gotten a new look outside!

 We have removed the old rock and we are replacing it with drainage, new rock, and a large      20x20 gazebo type shaded area. The under layer of rock has been delivered.  Now they have to level it out.
