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.

“My dog Honey has bad anxiety when left alone at home, so when I’m running errands or busy for the day I drop her off for daycare at CC! She loves it and always pulls me through the parking lot when we get there because she’s so excited. It’s a good way to tire her out. Awesome staff, clean, professional. Honey and I are big fans!”

Enriching Treats for Hot Days! 🍦

As the temperature rises, it`s essential to keep our furry friends cool and entertained. That`s why we`ve got the paw-fect solution: "pupsicles"!

Here`s how to make them:
1️⃣ Grab an ice cube tray or muffin tin (choose the size based on your dog`s needs).

2️⃣ Add a few pieces of kibble or treats to each compartment.

3️⃣ Pour in a tasty wet food like chicken broth, canned pumpkin, plain yogurt, or mashed banana.

4️⃣ Pop it in the freezer and let it solidify into a refreshing and enriching treat.

Each day, give your pup a delightful "pupsicle" to beat the heat and keep them happily occupied. Get creative and make multiple flavors to add excitement to their day!

Remember, enrichment is important for their mental and physical well-being, and these frozen treats offer a delicious way to engage their senses and keep them entertained.

We believe in providing a holistic experience that incorporates physical, social, sensory, and cognitive activities throughout the day with our Enrichment Daycare services. It`s a recipe for a happier, more engaged, and well-behaved furry companion!
