About Us

Dogs Day Afternoon has been an established part of the neighbourhood in Albert Park since 1997, and our staff can often be seen out and about with a happy group of four-legged clients. Owner Darren Favretto and his team of dog-lovers enjoy nothing more than meeting new pups and dogs to add to the Dogs Day Afternoon family!


We take pride in offering one of the most trusted dog-walking and grooming centres in Melbourne, and we take extra care to hire the right kind of staff to look after your animals. All of our employees are experienced dog handlers, and our grooming staff have both pet first aid qualifications and grooming qualifications. But most importantly of all, we are all dog owners ourselves (even the admin staff)!


It’s common for our own dogs to join us here at work, and you will often see Leroy around the premises and out for walks (Darren’s German Short-haired Pointer and our unofficial ‘PR Manager’).


Dogs Day Afternoon is located in Albert Park, and we look after dogs from all around the Melbourne Bayside area, from Docklands to South Yarra, right through to St Kilda East and Brighton. We offer a pickup and drop-off service, and can visit your dog at home for a play and a feed if needed.


If you would like to enquire about a free consultation for your dog, or if you have any questions at all, please feel free to call our friendly team today on 03 9696 0900.


Email enquiries will reach us at darren@dogsdayafternoon.com.au, and our salon is at 59 Dundas Place, Albert Park!
