NEW - Day School

We’re happy to offer a dog day school in partnership with Puppy Love Pet Center in Victoria BC!

Your dog will receive a training session, with one of our trainers, every day they come hang out with us! The remainder of the day will be a mix of down time in the kennel and outside time with the kennel staff.

Doggie Day School

Are you struggling to set up training sessions with your work schedule, or would you like us to train your dog for you? Dog Day school is the perfect option for you. This program is designed for you to drop off your dog in the morning and pick them up in the evening- no overnights required! We will work with them daily and focus the training on your dog’s needs.

Please note this program requires a minimum of 2 sessions to be booked consecutively.

Our partner – Puppy Love Care Pet Care Centre – is located in a rural setting on five acres near Island View Beach and Provincial Park. The property has been home to a boarding kennel for over 50 years. They are an exclusively individual boarding facility. Whether indoors or playing outside, dogs from different families are never mixed to reduce stress and eliminate the possibility of injury due to fighting or roughhousing.
As an additional service for your dog, Puppy Love offers Playschool. This 20-minute service gives additional individualized personal attention with one of their Social Directors in addition to your pet’s regular outside exercise times.

  • Dogs are always kept separate from other dogs at the kennel, including during exercise periods

Could your dog benefit from day school?

"What an amazing training experience!! My little Frenchie Otis had some bad experiences before he got to his forever home with me and I was at my wits end worrying about him and his intense anxiety & stress trying to put a collar on to take a walk. He had escalated to severe aggression from it.

I put him in the board & train program for help and after just a brief few sessions with Dave he is a completely different dog, happy & relaxed, excited to collar up and get out to sniff everything! He worked with me as a new dog mom just as much as he did with Otis which I appreciate. A million thank you's Dave!"
