Daycare for Dogs

We encourage happy wagging tails, cold noses. and playful barks. Belly scratches, ear kisses and chew toys are all on the agenda too. We do not object to dog drooling and shedding either! Our Pet Care Technicians are trained in canine behavior and communication and we practice polite daycare obedience skills.

My pup had the best day playing and training with the Courteous Canine team. They sent photos of her and I could tell she was having a blast. When she came home she was happy and tired, a marked improvement from other trial runs we’ve had with doggie day cares. If Courteous Canine was closer in proximity to our house this would have been our go-to doggie day care. We haven’t found it’s equal near us.

I have to thank both Marie and Elaine in the daycare program. I recently started taking my dog to day care at Courteous Canine every Friday. My dog ended up exhibiting signs of colitis from being overly excited and would often throw up and get terrible bouts of diarrhea while in their care. They were always great about notifying me if they there was ever an issue with him. I know that my dog is truly in good hands when in their care. I also love the pictures they post on Courteous Canine’s Facebook page of the dogs playing! It is great to see how much fun my dog is clearly having when I take him. I also appreciate that they rest him in between playtime so that he doesn’t get over-stimulated.

Overall, I can’t say enough great things about Courteous Canine! Every instructor I have met has been knowledgeable, patient, and extremely kind. Additionally, you can tell they all have a huge passion for animals.

Courteous Canines is the best thing I have EVER done for my dog, Bubbles. She’s a rescue, and having been in a shelter for several months, she had quite a bit of anxiety about other daycares. But this isn’t a daycare. It’s doggy camp!!

We started in Courteous Canines agility class to build her confidence. We’d just moved across the country, she and I, and were both a bit stressed and disoriented. The agility class was a kind of reorienting, and it was phenomenal. So was the swimming class. Once she was used to the beautiful outdoor campus, I left her for the day, for the first time. Of course I cried— but Bubbles did NOT.

My girl smiles all the way to camp every day. I say, “are you ready to go see your best friends?” And she go nuts. She loves her pack. I love that she has a pack. The staff loves her, and we both love the staff.

I know that she has lifelong friends here, a sense of belonging, and a genuine feeling of home. I’m giving my girl her best possible life at Courteous Canines; I’ve never known an organization so skillful, personal, and life-enriching.
