Dog Day School

Come in to see what everyone is barking about!

Our dog day school is a professionally supervised environment where your dog can safely run & play off-leash, have fun with friends, and gain confidence and manners while you work!

If you work long days and feel guilty about leaving your pet at home or they are destructive or anxious when left alone, they can instead spend the day with the next best thing to you – their favourite four-legged and two-legged best friends! Bring home a tired, satisfied pup, instead of coming home to a ball of energy.

Vaccination Requirements Dogs must be up to date on rabies, DHPP, and bordatella vaccinations for all daycare appointments. Proof of vaccination must be provided before the appointment time. We cannot provide services to dogs without up to date vaccinations, but can accept titer test results of exemption letters from your veterinarian if your dog cannot be vaccinated for health reasons.

Cancellation Policy Daycare spaces are limited and we do fill up most days. Due to this, all daycare appointments must be pre-booked and we cannot accept walk-ins. Additionally, we have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you book your dog for daycare and do not show up or do not provide sufficient notice, you may be asked to pre-pay for future appointments and will be charged in full for missed appointments in the future. If you have an emergency, please let us know so that we can treat your specific situation with personal attention. We do not consider conflicts to be emergencies. This cancellation policy is necessary for our small business to continue to serve our clients in need. Thank you for understanding.
