Playing Paws Academy

Welcome! We offer an enriched daycare experience for your family dog. Our focus is on the individual dog and their needs, as well as the dreams and wishes of their owners. Dogs are tended individually and for safety there is an assigned kennel for each visiting dog. 


Starting January 2021 we will offer a Puppy Playcare for fully vaccinated puppies UNDER 6 months old. We will focus on household manners and where there are suitable puppies in the daycare together, we will have a few minutes of supervised play sessions. However, those play sessions will ONLY happen if there are suitable matches in the daycare on the same day.

Puppy Playcare is offered on Tues/Wed/Thursday afternoons.

We have a safety procedure for dog pick-up and drop-offs, and, opening hours in Paws Cupboard are scheduled so as not to conflict with the Academy.  

Please wear a mask.

For general information about the Playing Paws Academy, please read this flyer.


We ask many, many, many questions. Your dog is unique and we want to get to know them. We want to know what your hopes are in bringing your dog to spend time with us. There is a purpose to all these questions!!!


To enrol a dog in the Playing Paws Academy you will need the application (above), health and vaccination records from your veterinarian, an on-site pre-screening visit, and a signed services agreement with us. 

As pet owners work through their way through all questions on the application, some will find that their dogs are just not suitable nor comfortable in a daycare environment. That doesn’t make them bad dogs and it doesn’t make for bad owners. Perhaps an online class might be more helpful. Feel free to ask questions.
