Dog daycare provides your canine companion with the physical activity, socialization and supervision they need. A professional, well-run dog daycare offers many advantages for dogs and pet owners who work all day and don’t want their dogs to be alone. Dog daycare alleviates boredom and loneliness, and can offer a safe, interactive and fun, cage-free outlet for high-energy dogs.

Dogs are typically dropped off at daycare in the morning and picked up at the end of the workday. Many owners say they find their dogs pleasantly tired and ready to relax for the rest of the evening.

Throughout history, dogs have been bred as working animals, for hunting, livestock herding, protection or guarding. Most domesticated dogs perform no tasks. Those that spend little time exercising often have pent up energy that leads to behavioral problems.

  • Facilitates socialization with people
  • Provides necessary exercise and socialization with other dogs who learn how to play in a pack
  • Prevents destructive behavior that can occur when as dog is home alone and unsupervised

Dogtopia is a state-of-the-art, purpose built 7,400 square foot daycare, boarding and grooming facility where dogs can socialize and play in large, customized rooms, including The Gym, Romper Room and Toy Box, and burn off their energy with dogs of similar size and temperament.

Dogtopia’s experts are highly trained to monitor the dogs’ behavior and interaction 

Highly trained Playcare attendants provide diligent oversight to ensure that all dogs have a stimulating, fun and safe experience, with their dog friends without the physical restraints of barriers or crates. Play sessions are interspersed with quiet time and naptime, when dogs have the opportunity to take a break and rest, and be on their own.

Anita Samadian, Dogtopia’s Regional Developer for Eastern Canada, said, “Many experts believe that daycare is preferable to hiring a dog walker because of the socialization benefits of daycare. Dogs are in a prescreened group where they run and play for the majority of the day. Dogs are pack animals and you can see how they innately integrate in this environment and love hanging out together.”
