Dog Daycare

 

PLEASE NOTE, WE ARE ONLY TAKING NEW DAYCARE DOGS FOR SATURDAY ONLY!  

Monday to Friday 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 9-5.   

Due to the busy lives we lead, sometimes we just can’t give our dogs all the care they need, all the time.

When time won’t allow, it’s important to find a way for your pet to get that care. This is why we offer Dog Daycare.

Why Use Our Dog Daycare?

daycare-doggyThere are many reasons why you may need help in caring for your dog.

  • You’re busy but you want to give your dog the exercise it needs for top health.
  • You’re having renovations done or service people to your house.
  • Your new baby demands all of your time and attention.
  • You’re at work all day and your dog has become stressed or poorly behaved.
  • To give your pet, whether puppy, adult or senior, the chance to socialize with other dogs.

Our Program

Price: $39.00/day (Monday to Saturday)  $30.00/day/1/2 day (Monday and Saturday only)  

  • Full-day Packages: 5 days for $189 | 10 days for $350 /20 days for $630 (latest drop off time is 10am) 
  • Half-day Packages (MONDAYS AND SATURDAYS ONLY) 5 days for $140 and 10 days for $260 (up to 5 hours with latest drop off time at 10am) 
  • Packages are non refundable or transferable unless an evaluation on another dog has been approved or if your dog has been dismissed.
  • We want to keep all of our charges safe, so we won’t allow aggressive dogs to join the daycare.  Not saying that pit bulls or pit mixes are all aggressive but their drive and gameness are not a good fit for our daycare as well as insurance issues with banned breeds prevents us from accepting them. Before we approve any registration, we assess the dog’s eligibility using our evaluation process…please submit using this link and you will be contacted by one of our team. temperament evaluation process.

Once accepted, a dog at Daycare stays active and has fun, all while enjoying the company of others of its kind. (We continually monitor behaviour and if we find your dog isn’t enjoying the daycare experience or has had some behaviour changes (largely due to age) we do reserve the right to dismiss dogs from our care.) We are very interactive inside our daycare.  Birthday parties, pictures, water play, outside time and lots of cuddles. No sitting around in cages at Dog Dayz!

We separate the smaller dogs from the big ones for their safety.  Although we know that dogs of all sizes can play well together, we want to make sure we take all necessary precautions to keep the environment relaxed and fun for all.

Collars are on dogs in our care, however we ask that you provide your dog with a Quick Release collar (one that snaps together).  Again, it’s all about safety so no buckle collars or martingale collars…or any style of training collar or harness.  They just aren’t safe while playing.

Of course, too much activity could exhaust or wind up your dog. So afternoons include a nap time/down time, and during the day, there’s one-on-one time with a staff member.

Should your dog receive a Bordetella vaccine intra nasally or orally, please keep him home for a period of 7 days as the virus can be shed and spread.  We do not require the vaccine as there are over 40 strains of canine cough and the vaccine only covers a couple of them.

Late fee of $10 for first 15 minutes, and $10 for each part of 15 minutes thereafter.

What If Your Dog Isn’t Yet Ready for Daycare?

If you feel your dog, due to behavioural or other issues, isn’t a candidate for daycare, consider our training programs. With the proper training, your dog may be able to eventually join our daycare program and take part in other fun activities at Dog Dayz.

Our Facilities

Designed to keep your dog safe and healthy, our facilities are of the highest professional quality.

We researched what’s best for dogs, installing a special rubberized floor that prevents injury, eases joint strain, and eliminates slipping. Our 3-door system prevents any excited dog from escaping.

Our indoor play area is over 3,500 sq. ft.  We also have an awesome outdoor space with 6′ high PVC fencing and Canine turf for your dog’s fun and safety.

And you can’t beat the convenient location: Dog Dayz is located close by the Eagleson Rd. Park ‘n Ride in Kanata.

PLEASE NOTE, WE ARE ONLY RECEIVING APPLICATIONS FOR SATURDAY DAYCARE!!

To determine if your dog is a good fit for daycare, first fill out our evaluation form prior to arranging for your dog’s on-site temperament assessment.  Once your dog completes and passes their assessment we need to see them in daycare within the month and they should be scheduled to attend at a MINIMUM once per month. At this time we are NOT assessing Intact males over the age of 8 months.  Once your dog has joined us we will continually monitor their behaviour and their joy of being with us.  Even after being accepted, there is a possibility that the environment is not a good fit for your pup.  If your dog is excused (sometimes temporarily) please do not take it personally, we are looking out for the best interest of him/her and the other dogs in our care.  On an another note, any dog from out of country must be in Canada for a minimum of 6 months prior to attending daycare.
Daycare Waiver. Please print and sign and bring with you on your first visit

Energetic Boston

Our sweet pup Boston just started going to Dog Dayz and it is the best thing we could have done. He already knows the building and gets excited when he sees he has arrived for a day of fun. When he comes home he is tired and ready for bed, this must mean he has spent all day playing with his friends!
