Why are we starting this program?
We have been operating the standard for doggy daycare for over 7 years, during this time we have interacted with dog of every breed and mix breed.
Some dogs love daycare and socializing with their friends, some dogs are OK for a while but we found they get bored after a few hours. Some become anxious, some destructive, some sleep and some can be a little pushy and snappy.
We don’t think that failing them at daycare and removing them is the answer or very helpful to their parents. We feel that they need something more to keep their minds active and stimulated in a one on one or smaller group environment.
Advanced daycare can provide just this, we have been working with some awesome staff and providing extra training and schooling to bring more activities to daycare like Advanced Daycare.
Advanced Daycare will be short intervals of different brain games, exercise, nose work, strength training, agility and even obedience. Each dog will have an evaluation on what you want out of it as well as what our team thinks they might need having seen them interacting in daycare. So each dog may have a different daily list of activities based on their age, mobility, focus, drive, instincts. We want each dog to get the most they can from their custom days enrolled at Advanced Daycare.
You will receive report cards so you can track their progress and what activities they did, as well as photos and videos posted to our Facebook page.
We hope you will try it out. We recommend a 6 week program to get them most benefit, this will be 2 classes a week for a set date period.
Details on the program:
Available MONDAY to THURSDAY between the hours of 8.30 am - 4:30 pm. Pricing is $33.92 PLUS the cost of daycare.

Puppies: Will benefit from physical and mental stimulation while teaching them new games, tricks and behaviors while releasing their puppy energy.
Senior Dogs: We can help keep your senior dog in great shape by incorporating consistent low impact work outs. This will help keep their muscle mass in their hind legs and hips, strong. Also enjoying nose work games and puzzles keeping their mind sharp.
Shy Dogs: Smaller play groups help them come out of their shell and encourage them to play more and make friends in a less overwhelming environment. As well as bond with our staff and learn to trust.
High Energy & Low Energy dogs: This program will maintain a healthy weight, stronger core. The brain work activities will keep their minds sharp with reinforcing boundaries and building confidence while learning new skills.
How it works:
Dogs will be in with general daycare population for the day, whether that is in Small Dog Room,Puppy Room, Big Dog Room, or the Quiet Room and they will be bought out of the group multiple times a day, by themselves, or with one or two other dogs who are complimentary partners, making sure they get the most out of their Advanced Daycare program.
This helps break up their day and keep them mentally stimulated with multiple activities and training with rests between.
Handlers initiate games with dogs keeping arousal levels low while everyone has fun.
Handlers use verbal cues, body blocking and proactive intervention to manage small group interactions.
Dogs are challenged mentally during games, movement to and from the daycare playgroup and use of leadership exercises.
Handlers spend time interacting with each dog individually and set dogs up for success by knowing their limits, play styles and help signals.
