Did your dog pass their assessment? Great!
Now you’re ready to book a daycare day.
Book your meet and greet through the free Paw Partner App.
Our assessments are 4 hours long. Drop off is at 10:00 am and pick up is at 2:00 pm.
What to bring:
Please ensure your vaccination records have been updated/uploaded into the Paw Partner app, or bring them with you at drop off. Dogs without current vaccinations will be turned away at the door.
What to expect:
Your dog will slowly be introduced to the facility, meet our staff, and once the dog is comfortable we will start to introduce them to their new friends. We’ll provide ample feedback at pick up on how your pup did.
Your assessment is valid for 3 months – if your dog does not attend any daycare within 3 months of their initial Meet and Greet, a re-assessment is required.
All dogs starting daycare are recommended to attend 1 day/week for a month. As this allows the dog to get better accustomed to our facility, our staff, and to make other doggie friends!
All dogs that pass their assessment are on a one month probationary period (or equal to ~4 times, whichever comes first) whereby the dog can be dismissed for behaviours such as resource guarding, humping, separation anxiety etc. without following our strike policies (see policies under daycare below).
- 1 day/wk
- ~ $168 monthly

- ~ $328 monthly
- 3 days/week
- ~$480 monthly
- 4 days/week

Multi-dog households that attend on the same day receive a 15% discount on the second dog. The discount does not apply to daycare packages. For more than two dogs please contact us.
What does a day of daycare look like?
Morning Drop Off: 6:30 am to 9 am
Evening Pick Up: 4 pm to 6pm
You are always able to pick your dog up outside of pick up times. Just give us a call and we’ll get them ready for you as we keep the front doors locked during the day.
We are a structured daycare and try to stick to our daily schedule as much as possible. We firmly believe that having a consistent routine creates a happier dog and the most effective way to create a stress free daycare.
Our daycare acts as a second home for many of our dogs and any dog that shows signs of over excitement or stranger danger at drop off or pick up time may be put in a crate or kept away from the entrance to help keep them calm and happy.
*If a dog has been absent from daycare for more than 3 consecutive months, a reassessment may be required.
Daycare and Day training drop-off ends at 9:00am sharp. If you are running behind (it happens!) please call us so we know you will be arriving after the cut-off. We maintain a strict routine for the dogs, and in order to optimize the flow of the day it is very important that all dogs be present by 9:00am. Dogs that are consistently late may be turned away to prevent disrupting the rest of the dogs as we begin training and break rotations.
All daycare and day train cancellations need to be received before 6pm the night before your dogs scheduled reservation and must be sent through messages in the Paw Partner App. All cancellations after 4:00pm are subject to a $25.00 (+GST) cancellation fee. For example, a message received at 5:50pm on Tuesday evening for a Wednesday reservation will have a cancellation fee added to their account. This is to ensure any customers on our waitlist are given the opportunity to attend Daycare when a spot becomes available.
A dog that is on our roster for the day and is not in attendance by 9am is considered a no-show and subject to the Standard Daycare rate or $42+GST, regardless of package credits. Please note, our “2nd Dog” discount does not apply to no-show fees, and the customer will be charged for two individual no-show reservations. Of course if you or your pet are not able to attend for personal, medical, or other extenuating circumstances, we will make every reasonable effort to be fair for reasonable no-shows.
The above policies are to ensure customers on our waitlist are given the opportunity to attend daycare or training if a space becomes available.
Strikes and Dismissals:
We do our best to communicate any behavior (positive or negative) that is uncharacteristic for your dog, or that could lead to future bad habits or serious incidents. In order to refrain from encouraging or reinforcing undesirable behaviors, CA has implemented a three strike policy. Each strike will be communicated both in person and by email, outlining the incident and recommendations to mitigate and improve the behavior. Behaviours that constitute a strike include but are not limited to resource guarding, excessive humping, contact with another dog or person, and destructive behaviour etc. Any dog that receives a third strike will be dismissed from daycare and will only be available for a reassessment Meet & Greet after completing the required recommendations.
