day care

Send your dog to school while you’re at work.

dog daycare calgarydayschool is our innovative take on canine daycare. Combining the best of day-long care with continuous skill reinforcement from trainers, our concept provides your dog a unique opportunity for socialization and skill reinforcement. dayschool is not only fun, but it is a positive, balanced learning environment. You can be confident that all your hard work won’t be wasted when you leave your dog with us.

Here’s how it works.

dayschool attendees will be dropped off by their pack leader each morning at our packshack – our very own space designed for a safe, clean and spacious canine experience. The program curriculum involves stimulating mental and physical group and individual activities uniquely designed by our trainers. Every afternoon, a minimum one-hour on-leash walk will be alternated with nap-time, ensuring your dog gets the appropriate physical outlet to achieve a balanced state of mind.

With constant human leadership and supervision throughout the day, arousal and excitement levels can be safely managed. This makes for a safe environment regardless of age, breed or size. And since our dayschool coaches are all trainers, too, your dog will even be given some individual attention on basic skills that may need some sharpening up.

Your dog is ready for dayschool if they are well socialized and have no issues with other dogs. If you have any concerns about your dog’s behaviour or aggression towards other dogs — we’ll happily work with you to outside of this environment to prepare your dog for dayschool.

Regardless of whether you’re a regular club360 class attendee, or have been out of pupstart, jumpstart or the core for a year or more, your dog will greatly benefit from our safe, structured and stimulating environment.

Frequency:

One day a week will be great support – and a minimum of two days per week will provide noticeable improvements in your dog’s energy, social and communication skills and state-of-mind. Full-time enrollment provides an excellent pack environment for your dog and while maximizing their fun, learning and resting opportunities throughout the day.
