Fun, Fitness & Friends – Weekday Dog Day Care
Here at Camp Canine, our dog daycare program is the real deal ! All dogs crave and love playing with other dogs and so that’s exactly what we let them do – at a high level of supervision. Our unique value is that our dog day care program rate involves our skilled methods to develop each dogs life skills. We diligently, yet gently guide each and every guest to read cues, and learn to play socially appropriate with various aged dogs and breeds – so that a fun time is had by all! Our practices ensure that a timid / shy dog can build confidence and flourish, while overzealous, high-spirited dogs learn to soften their play style and social manner with certain dogs. The positive interaction, intellectual stimulation and exercise that comes from correct socializing, undoubtedly serves a dogs’ well being. Please see the list of benefits below, which our very own clients have reported:
Please note that ALL new guests must pass our behaviour assessment- please visit our Requirements page for details. And we have a minimum of at least 1 day per week commitment- see below .
Our private, safe play zones are spacious enough for highly-spirited breeds like Australian Shepherds to expend their energy. From pups to elderly, all our guests receive exercise appropriate to their age and fitness level where they can; fetch a ball; chase a pal; bat our giant balls around; climb elevations; crawl a tunnel; hangout on our safe rock lookouts or just catch a nap under a shady tree. Always under the caring watch of our dog-smart trained attendants. There’s always fresh water, safe balls & toys near at paw. It’s a wholesome blend of activity that makes for happy, healthy, emotionally stable dogs.
