Dogtopia of Halifax

Dogtopia of Halifax is proudly owned and operated by Jen McCain . Being pet parents themselves they know what your dog deserve’s, and it’s their personal mission to deliver nothing but the best for you and your dog.

We understand that your dog is a member of the family.

Your dog’s safety is our top priority at Dogtopia of Halifax; that’s why our team’s training is certified by two nationally recognized associations in canine behaviour. Our play rooms are supervised by these certified Canine Coaches, and your dog will be in a playroom where he or she is surrounded by dogs of similar size, temperament and play style as well as those who are fully vaccinated and have passed our Dogtopia evaluation. Your dog will be in very capable hands during their time with us!


Dogs thrive in a structured environment where they can socialize with others, learn new things, stay active and have fun. Our daycare provides pet parents with more than just a place to leave their dog for the day. They will learn valuable skills, including how to behave around humans and other dogs.

Our Halifax facility comes with spacious, supervised playrooms in which dogs are placed according to their size, temperament and play style to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for your beloved pet.

We offer an indoor off-leash, open-play environment, allowing your pup total freedom. We provide dog parents with half-day or full-day daycare. If your pup needs a spa day, we also offer spa services as a part of our daycare and boarding packages. When you pick up your dog at the end of the day, you’ll pick up a perfectly happy and played out pup.

We’re located in Downtown Halifax. Our front entrance is directly down the stairs off of Hollis (1464 Ironstone Lane is off off Hollis). We also have a drop off area beside the Alexander building at the end of the roundabout.

We’ve taken every precaution when it comes to the design of our facility. All of our spacious indoor playrooms use bespoke climate-controlled HVAC systems to keep your pup the perfect temperature during play time and nap time, and to help keep the air fresh and clean.

We deep clean and sanitize the playrooms multiple times a day with a biologically safe, pet-friendly cleaner. The compressed rubber flooring is specially designed to aid in the long-term joint a paw health of your furry child.

Our live webcams give you the distance but not the separation. We have webcams in every playroom so you check in on them throughout the day (excluding weekends and overnight). All you need is a device that is connected to the Internet.

Your dog’s safety is our number one priority, which is why our Canine Coaches must complete a rigorous training, designed by a canine behaviorist, on dog body language and behavior. Our team knows how to recognize even the most subtle dog body language, and handle dogs of all sizes, breeds and temperaments.


At Dogtopia of Halifax, we recognize that each dog is unique. That is why we take the time find the daycare, boarding and spa package that will best meet your dog’s needs, as well as your own. Please feel free to fill out our contact form or call us at 782-827-5828 if you have any questions about any of our services. Our friendly and knowledgeable team will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and determine if we are a right fit for your pup.
