Dog Daycare

Monday to Friday 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

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 too busy 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: $33/day | $24/half day (up to 5 hours).

  • Full-day Packages: 5 days for $150 | 10 days for $290 /20 days for $500
  • Half-day Packages: 5 days for $110 | 10 days  for $200   Packages are non refundable or transferable unless an evaluation on another dog has been approved.  (1/2 days are up to 5 hours and can start anytime up until 12:00pm)
We want to keep all of our charges safe, so won’t allow aggressive dogs to join the Daycare. This is why before we approve any registration, we assess the dog’s eligibility using our 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 have a treadmill, interactive games, and a FitPaws® for core and strength training. No sitting around in cages at Dog Dayz!

We separate the little 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 Bordatella 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 3,000 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.

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.
Thank you for taking such good care of Rocco!

To Janet Burns and the team at Dog Dayz, I would like to thank you for taking such great care of our dog, Rocco!

We adopted Rocco from a rescue and within a few days, we realized that he had some deeply set separation anxiety. Leaving him home at this stage was not an option as our poor boy was afraid we would abandon him. We brought him to Dog Dayz and Rocco has been absolutely loving it! He's socializing with other dogs and he's so excited to come to day care and also happy to go home at the end of the day -- as he's had a full day of exercise and play!

The results have been a happy, well exercised Rocco who's comfortable around lots of other dogs.

We also can't say enough good things about the obedience classes offered at Dog Dayz. We've been taking Rocco to a first level class taught by Nancy-Lynn Stroller and it's been fantastic! Rocco has mastered "sit", "down", "stay", and "come", in class and he's pretty good on "stand." We've been working on applying the techniques that Nancy has given us at the dog park and in other out-of-class situations and he's doing really well! Rocco has gained confidence and in turn, we've gained confidence in how we manage him since. A big thanks to Nancy for all her help!

We've been taking Rocco to Dog Dayz for a few months now, and the confidence he's gained from your day care and obedience class is setting us on the path to reducing his separation anxiety.

Thank you so much Janet and your team for your the exceptional care you give to Rocco and all the doggies at your day care.
