Do you ever worry that your furry friend is getting bored sitting at home while you have to work, run errands, or visit someone? Well worry no more. Animal Antics Behaviour Centre provides full day doggy daycare to keep them entertained for you.

All puppies at daycare will receive fully supervised play time with other daycare dogs. Nap times are available upon request and lunch can be given if you bring your dog's own food. Crates and kenneling are only used if requested by the owner, otherwise your dog will be free to play all day with their friends.  Our daycare staff work hard to ensure the happiness of each and every dog with individualized attention. Our daycare is equipped with both indoor and outdoor play areas, including two separate play groups- large/rowdy dogs and small/calmer large dogs.  We can accommodate up to 60 dogs per day (max 30 dogs per play group), depending on staffing, weather conditions (we accept fewer dogs when we cannot use our outdoor space).

It is VERY IMPORTANT to note that not all dogs want to be in a large social group.  Many dogs do not enjoy or cannot safely handle playing with multiple dogs, even if they enjoy a few friends in the dog park or have other dog friends at home.  If your dog is overwhelmed in our group, we will recommend they do not continue coming to daycare.  An overwhelmed dog is not enjoying their time here and is more likely to react aggressively when they cannot avoid interactions.
