K9HQ Doggy Daycare


Why Doggy Daycare?

The average dog spends 8-10 hours a day at home alone with no positive outlet for their normal canine energy. This lack of adequate stimulation causes dogs to get bored and frustrated which can lead to long list of behaviour problems.
Doggy daycare not only allows dogs to release pent-up energy through play, it can also teach young dogs crucial socialization and body language through safe interactions with dogs of all ages. Dogs are social animals so regular interactions or play with other dogs is crucial in leading a healthy, enriched life, from puppies to seniors.

Are all Doggy Daycares the Same? 

Unfortunately not. The Doggy Daycare industry is currently unregulated in North America, meaning that there are no mandatory guidelines for supervision, group size, staff education, or management methods.
K9HQ strives to abide by the highest recommended standards with low staff to dog ratios, separate play groups based on size & temperament and continuing education for staff of the most current scientific information on dog behaviour. Safety and the well-being of our dogs are our top priorities. We do not condone the use of pain, fear, intimidation, or physical force. Daycare is meant to be a fun, safe place for dogs, which is why we prefer reward-based management methods to promote a fun & positive atmosphere.
Be sure to do your homework and ask lots of questions when researching doggy daycares to ensure you find the best fit for both you and your furry child.
