LSU Vet Med unleashes new Dog Daycare

April 02, 2024

The LSU School of Veterinary Medicine announced that its Dog Daycare is now open to the public, welcoming not only dogs belonging to staff, students and faculty at LSU but also extending its services to all dog owners in the Greater Baton Rouge area. The center is open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays.

The Dog Daycare is headed by Destiny Stuart, who has more than 13 years of experience in animal care and grooming. The Dog Daycare staff has experience with dog care, dog training, and grooming. 

“Pets are getting personalized care. It’s really touching to see certain dogs come out of their shell here. We always go the extra mile to make sure dogs get the most out of their experience,” Destiny said. 

The facility is equipped to provide full-service grooming, two outdoor fenced yards with shade canopies, and spacious indoor play areas and kennels. The daily schedule begins with breakfast and potty walks followed by one-on-one activities with staff and dogs. Then comes lunch, indoor activities such as puzzle toys, lick mats, and meeting other dogs in groups of three or four with staffers on hand. Afternoons bring outdoor activities, including a wading pool and splash pads, followed by potty walks, and individual kennel time for rest and naps. Owners receive fun daily “report cards” on how their dogs did throughout the day. 

The LSU Vet Med Dog Daycare is open to all dog owners, irrespective of their affiliation with LSU. For enrollment information, facility tours, and pricing details, please visit or contact the daycare at (225) 334-1312 or (225) 578-9457.
