What makes us different

Each client goes home with a well exercised and well adjusted dog. We provide attention and open space to help your pup socialize with other dogs and to help cope with separation anxiety. We really care about your dog and all the dogs at a Small World Doggie Daycare as if they were our own! Play time is included with your dogs stay, as well as walks and of course lots of love!

Family like atmosphere

As a smaller company, we greatly value every customer and employee. We aim to foster a family like atmosphere where clients and staff always feel comfortable and welcomed. Our clients have the utmost confidence in leaving their little ones in our professional care for just the day or longer.

Newly renovated facility

We have a newly renovated facility with your small dog’s comfort, and safety in mind. We are a fully air conditioned facility that provides fresh water, lots of toys and we do our absolute best to keep our facility as clean as possible! We believe that loving your dog is the number one priority at our facility and keeping them clean is on the top of that list when it comes to loving them.

What to Expect

We will schedule a convenient 30-minute evaluation to assess your pup’s temperament and their needs for the stay. We will feed according to your instructions, and with the food, you provide to maintain their daily structure. Feel free to bring your pup’s bed or toys to help your pup feel like they are at home! Lastly, dog parents get to meet the humans that will be caring for your pups during their stay.


Aaron and his staff are amazing! I have been taking my dogs here for years because it is close to my house, and in the past few years since Aaron has taken over it has improved so much in terms of cleanliness and appeal. I have three dogs and my mom and dad have four dogs and they have all stayed here several times, for a few days but also for 2 weeks at a time. I love how it's a free range facility. All of our dogs can be together instead of locked up in cages. Aaron does a great job keeping us updated and sending pics and videos. He's also very responsive to texts and calls. On our most recent trip, 1 of my dogs had an issue with her paw, and Aaron noticed it and looked out for it. My dogs are always exhausted when they come home from here because they have fun playing with the other dogs. I recommend coming here if you're looking for a consistent, clean boarding place with friendly people. Thanks Aaron!

We were so sad to have to leave our Teddie over Thanksgiving, but we couldn't have left him in better hands. One of the reasons we selected this location is because of the "social" component the website describes, and the very first thing that we noticed was how clean this is despite it being a "free-range" facility. While Teddie usually has a hard time being away from us, he seemed to fit right in with the other dogs which made it so much easier to leave without feeling guilty! And, when we picked him up, he was actually sad to leave his new friends!! We're so impressed with this place and will definitely be bringing Teddie back to his new "home away from home"!!

I love this place. Andre' manages each day with a profound love and understanding of small dogs, a kind heart and a highly professional attitude. The dogs are happy, feel safe, and mine comes home each time sleepy and satisfied. FIVE STARS!!

I have been taking my furry friends here for the last month 2-3 times a week. This place is simply the BEST!!! I completely agree with the other yelper that it is run by dog lovers!!!And customer service is the best as well... Something lacking from other animal facilities here in RSM. I also like that they keep the place very clean!!!

So far my dogs have spent 4 full days here and it has been a wonderful experience. I leave the webcam up and running on my computer all day and can see what a great job all of the people do and how much fun all of the dogs have. We will definitely be coming back to A Small World for as long as it is here (hopefully a long long time). If you are searching for a daycare for your small dogs, you will not be disappointed and will find great relief in discovering this place for yourself and the dogs in your family.

I went there few times with two of my pomchis to socialize them - they are so scared of other dogs because of their size. The staff was super nice, friendly, helpful. Even those few training sessions we had - were so helpful. I also love the idea of having a place created for small breeds - a place where the tiny ones feel safe and can play with each other. Overall - 5 stars - I would totally recommend to use this place to socialize your dogs, or let them have a "doggie date" with other pups, and let them play and be happy. You can also leave them there if you travel - I think that they offer a pet boarding as well (haven't tried it yet).
