Doggie Daycare

Why doggie daycare?

Doggie daycare can help your dog/puppy.........

develop superior social skills with other dogs
relieve boredom and reduce destructive behaviours
build confidence with other dogs
maintain good physical and mental health
decrease stress
provide much needed mental and physical stimulation
release pent up energy for a better behaved dog/puppy
eliminate owner-absent behaviour problems
relax and give the owner a break

Doggie Daycare provides all these benefits and more! What could be better than eight to ten hours a day of running, jumping, playing and socializing all within a safe, supervised environment. Exercise and socialization are an important part in maintaining a well balanced healthy dog. Dogs left at home for extended periods tend to lack proper exercise and mental stimulation which can lead to problem behaviour. Many dogs lack stimulation, sufficient outlets for their energy, or opportunities to safely socialize with other dogs. Dogs/puppies in our care are monitored during play with other dogs. Our daycare staff are trained and experienced to interpret dog body language so we can ensure that all dogs are safe and comfortable.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I bring my first day of doggie daycare?

On your first day of daycare, please bring a completed Daycare Registration Form, Vet Care Release Form and a photocopy of your most current vaccinations. If your dog eats a lunch or snack, bring it in a labeled container/ziploc bag and we'll make sure he/she gets it during nap time. All our guests must wear a quick-release buckle collar. If your dog arrives on a different type of collar, it will be removed and returned to you at the end of the day. Quick-release collars may be purchased from us or any major pet retail store.

What does my dog do all day?

Dogs tend to play in 30-45 minute increments. They wrestle, tug on toys, and romp around, then rest. We have several comfy beds for our guests to take a break. We also have plenty of nylabones for chewing when resting. We have a very scheduled day where we rotate between play sessions indoors and potty breaks outside. Every time we go in or outside, we work on basic obedience.

Why do you have a nap time?

We have nap time to allow our guests to take a break and rest for the afternoon play sessions. We have found that just like in human children, when dogs get overtired/over stimulated, they become restless and irritable. This wired feeling can cause upset and agitation which could cause fights. We want our guests as comfortable, safe and happy as possible during their stay with us.

Where do the dogs potty?

We have our own private, fully fenced back yard. We will not ruin your potty training because we are reinforcing potty training all day long. We can even help potty train your puppies!

Do I need an appointment for daycare?

Yes. Clients with recurring reservations receive first priority for available slots for daycare. If you have a variable schedule, call and reserve as soon as you know to reserve your space. Calls made the day of will be admitted only if space allows. For the safety of our guests and staff, we cannot accept dogs without an appointment if we are full. Last drop off time of the day is 10:00 am.

Why can't I stop by any time to see the daycare?

While we would love to show you around, we are unable to take time away from the dogs to give tours during business hours. Many of our daycare dogs, while friendly, find frequent interruptions annoying or even scary. Please give us a call to schedule a tour or meet and greet with your dog at the end of our daycare day at 6:30pm. You can also check out our many photos and videos on our Facebook group.

What do you do for bad behaviours?

To maintain happy daycare dogs, we utilize redirection or time outs for dogs that are being unruly or displaying inappropriate behaviours. A time out is not punishment, but a break from whatever they were doing. For more information about using time outs effectively, you can email us at info@k9sinkahoots.com. Sometimes a mental break is all that is needed.

What if there is an emergency?

Should there be an injury or illness when your dog is in daycare, we will do everything in our power to ensure the safety of your dog and other dogs. We will attempt to contact you first, then your emergency contacts. If needed, we will transport your dog to the vet. K9'S in KAHOOTS is not responsible for any costs involved.
