increased exercise, safe socialization, and exclusive benefits for you and your pup

    Dogtopia of Kitchener

    Dogtopia Kitchener is a family owned business and the leading destination for dog daycare, boarding, training and spa services. Our mission is to make sure your four-legged family members are kept safe and have a fun time when they are at our modern, open-play facility.

    We understand that your dog is a member of the family. You want to provide your dog with safe socialization so that they meet and play with like-minded friends, exercise to keep them healthy and extend their lives and education to help ensure they are well-behaved both at home and when you take them out in public. Dogtopia’s daycare is designed with these needs in mind. Your dog’s safety is our top priority; that’s why our team’s training is certified by two nationally recognized associations in canine behavior. 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!

    DOG DAYCARE SERVICES AND MORE in Downtown Kitchener

    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 6000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility comes with three 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 pup.

    We offer an off-leash, open-play environment, allowing your pup total freedom. We provide your dog with half-day or full-day of 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’ve taken every precaution when it comes to the design of our facility in Kitchener

    Opened in July 2020, our 6000-square foot two-level facility has three huge indoor playrooms (the Toybox, the Romper, and the Gym) as well as six suites for boarding and rest time.

    All of our spacious indoor playrooms use 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 circulate fresh air through out the facility and clean the air using Ultra-Violet C air cleaning systems as well.

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

    We believe in 100% transparency, which is why we have live webcams that you can access during playtime through your desktop or our free mobile app (available in the Apple or Google Play stores). You will be able to watch your pup play and frolic with their BFFFs (Best Furry Friends Forever)!

    Your dog’s safety is our number one priority, which is why our Canine Coach training is a customized curriculum designed by Colleen Demling, a registered CPDT-KA, CBCC-KA, CDBC, canine behaviorist. Our team knows how to recognize even the most subtle dog body language, and handle dogs of all sizes, breeds and temperaments.
