Dogs stay in a social, stimulating kennel-free environment. Trainers take them on walks at least three times daily, and one of those walks includes a two-hour exercise and training lesson. Half-day daycare sessions cover the same two-hour course, which can impart obedience commands and address behaviour issues, as well as improve general canine etiquette.
Dog Taxi Daycare
At Dog Taxi Daycare Vancouver's daycare and boarding facilities, the comforts mirror those of a high-class hotel: personal trainers, walks on the beach, and no cages. The kennel-free environment uses homestyle boarding methods, which means dogs socialize, exercise, and rest freely, both indoors and out. There is some structure to their schedules, however—at least three times a day during boarding stays, the staff takes each dog for a long stroll past parks and shorelines. One of these sessions lasts two hours and includes an obedience-training course, during which qualified trainers impress the value of good behaviour and teach their charges how to properly enunciate "thank you" when your mouth is full of tennis ball. Pups that don't stay overnight can still benefit from these lessons by dropping in for half-day daycare visits.
As its name suggests, the company also oversees a fleet of taxis that ferry four-legged passengers to and from various locales. The cabs—all of which are environmentally friendly hybrids, propane-powered, or electric vehicles—shuttle pets between their homes and destinations such as airports, the vet's, or a friend's yard.
