Doggy daycare includes playtime and socialization with people and other canines, with hours available between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. The rally-obedience class preps pups with the tricks needed to conquer the obedience-based sport, Rally-O; the standard obedience course promotes respect, communication, and good behaviour with a focus on the use of key words, play, and praise as reward. It also includes education on the tools and theories of obedience.
