“Started going here because they are one of the only places that take puppies. The evaluation and first day were free. Our puppy played non-stop for 5 hours. I watched my pup on video and he always looks like he`s having a grand old time. The dogs have access to an outdoor space at all times. Love that!” - Lori C.

Fall color tour planned? Book your pup’s stay with us! They’ll play all day with other pups of similar size and play style under the supervision of our trained Canine Coaches.

At night, they’ll have a freshly cleaned and private dorm with a bed, where they’re likely to dream about all the friends they made that day.

Dog enrichment is an important part of a dog’s overall health and happiness. It can be as simple as hiding small treats or kibble around the house for your furry friend to sniff out. It`s a pawsitively engaging way to keep them entertained and mentally sharp.

If you’re unable to find the time for enrichment for your dog at home, bring your pup to Canine College for daycare! Playing with other dogs, for a half or full day, will benefit their mental and physical health immensely.
