Day Boarding:

Day Boarding may be an option for those dogs that owners don’t want or don’t qualify for Club Canal Bark but still need to be attended to during the day. Owners that use our Basic Day Boarding services may need to board their dog for the day because they have a longer day than usual at work are in town and need a safe place to keep their dog while they are site seeing, or just want their dogs to have more activity than if they were left at home. The dogs that are day boarding with us get potty/exercise breaks roughly every 3 hours. If your dog has permission to play with other dogs we will attempt to put them in play groups. Factors that would determine whether we can get them in play groups would depend on how well your dog settles in and whether or not there is a suitable play companion for your dog. Play group sizes can very between 2-15 dogs. The staff that monitor the play groups go through an extensive set of courses that teaches dog language as well as how to monitor and manage off leash play groups safely. But owners must keep in mind that there is an adherent risk for injury when dogs participate in an off leash play setting.

Enhanced Day Boarding:

Enhanced Day Boarding are for those dogs that don’t quite fit into our General Day Camp due to them being uncomfortable in large play groups, or otherwise don’t meet the Day Camp requirements, but their owners would like them to have a more enriched experience than the short potty/exercise breaks that come with our regular Day Boarding service.

The exercise periods that the Enhanced Day Boarders receive are still roughly every 3 hours but are more structured.  

Some of the activities that Enhanced Day Boarded dogs receive may include:

  • Play time with other dogs in smaller groups if an appropriate play companion is available.
  • Training exercises (sit, down, stay, healing, come etc…)
  • Scent games and puzzles 1:1 with staff.  These kinds of games not only provide physical exercise, but mental exercise as well.
