Canine College Services


Canine College is a structured environment where your dog can be a dog, utilize the pack skills he was born with and communicate instinctively with other dogs. At Canine College doggie daycare, our students are never left unattended in the playfield with other students – setting us apart from other metro Detroit doggie daycare service providers.

About Daycare
Students play in our Halls all day with one lunch and one dinner break. All-day play with us provides your student exercise and activity that is vital to his or her life longevity. 

What makes Canine College different?

  • No reservations required or “required” drop-off hours
  • Playfield “coaches” skilled in dog management, pack behavior, first aid
  • Low person-to-dog ratio: we actually “play” with your dogs
  • All day supervised play! Not 2 or 3 hours like other dog daycares – we are talking day!
  • 4 climate controlled play fields. Dogs are assigned based on size, play style and temperament including Puppy Freshman field.
  • Outdoor access: Each of our play fields has an attached outdoor field, allowing your dog to relieve themselves on K9 Grass to reinforce healthy, learned behaviors.
  • Latchkey (optional late hours)
  • Webcams are private and password protected to insure your privacy
  • Sack lunches: Opt to bring your dog’s lunch and/or dinner and we will feed your dog for no extra cost. We also offer many food options for purchase.

Our Playfields

Varsity Hall for our larger and more rambunctious students! This large indoor field has indoor play equipment and is roomy enough to easily accommodate a good game of canine field football, soccer or tennis!

Sophomore Hall is for our dogs who have matured and outgrown (physically) the Lower Classman Hall BUT are not quite mature enough for the Upper Classman Hall.

JV Hall for our smaller and more timid students. This field, equipped with play equipment designed specifically for dogs, is perfect for your students who are smaller or timid.

Freshman Hall is designed for our smaller students and our youngest students and puppies. A perfect play to romp and get to know other canine students. Wonderful socialization skills that last a lifetime can be built in this field! Your student will learn “doggie language” from other dogs; a language that cannot be taught by humans.

Puppies. Puppies. Daycare For Puppies!

 Puppies have special needs and we are here to help you!

College Prep Program – This is an affordable way for your 12 week to 6 month old puppy to meet, greet and become comfortable with people and other dogs. The first 6 months of age is the window of opportunity you have to help mold your new dog’s socialization skills. This option provides 6 consecutive days of care for only $90.

Office Puppies – Young puppies 9-12 weeks, become our “office puppies” option. Puppies can graduate to group play at 12 weeks. Put your puppy in a special place which has become a fan favorite on our social channels.

Enrichment Daycare

At Canine College, we recognize that every pup is unique, that’s why we offer both Enrichment Brain and Fitness Daycare and Classic Daycare.

Enrichment daycare is a program incorporating physical, social, sensory and cognitive activities throughout the day. It brings mental stimulation and entertainment to your dog making your dog happier, more engaged and more well behaved.

Who is a good candidate for our Enrichment Brain and Fitness? Dogs who enjoy daycare and those who do not. Smart dogs, dogs who stimulate easily, puppies and senior dogs are all terrific candidates. Private Study dogs, dogs who do not go into group for a variety of reasons, will benefit from the activities, physical and mental, to make their stay with us even more rewarding.

Intelligent dogs who get bored easily, who bark excessively and may be labeled as “troublemakers” or a “hand full” in other settings may be great candidates. They will play puzzle games, engage in scent games, practice leash walking, have private time with our trainers who will select which activities your furry student benefits from the most.

Senior dogs will enjoy the puzzles and scent games along with the snuggling and private attention from our trainers. Of course, puppies and adolescent dogs who are 6-10 months, are still learning with tons of energy and minds that love to soak up new and fun activities.

To learn more, check out our Enrichment Day Training or call our offices.

Multi-day packages start at $195 plus daycare.

Parents enjoy the peace of mind knowing their student is not left alone for long hours. While it’s difficult to leave your companion at home while you juggle the demands of home and work, you are able to log onto our private College Vision WebCam and watch your Canine College student play! Caution: we are not responsible when your co-workers crowd around your computer monitor to watch your student with you and the boss walks by!
