Urban Pooch Enrichment Daycare is a tailored program that nurtures your Pooch’s Physical, Mental, & Emotional well-being

We are very excited to offer you and your pooch an enhanced premium daycare service: Enrichment Daycare.  We tailor your Pooch's experience in Enrichment Daycare and adapt the activities and games to their unique personalities and needs.  

Part of the magic of Enrichment is that we match your pooch with other dogs of a similar play style - all in very small groups of 5-6 dogs, providing socialization and pure Fun! Our Enrichment Specialists are also able to share some one-on-one playtime with your dog. Ultimately, we design your Pooch’s daily schedule to provide a delightful balance of play and rest. 

Some of the Fun includes: 

  • Learning new tricks & new commands
  • Puzzle time
  • Licki & Snuffle Mats
  • Tug & Toy Time
  • Agility & Nose Work
  • Numerous K9 Klimb Games, and
  • Working on FitPAWS equipment

We ensure all dogs remain engaged throughout their Enrichment experience because we are consistently introducing new FUN games and activities to enjoy! Every day is unique and customized, never boring. Check out our video at .  We also feature Pool Time at 5400 N Damen Avenue, weather permitting.

We also mix in relaxing recharge time, which is essential to a dog’s emotional well-being, which consists of small group nap time or quiet crate time. We also provide cuddles during the one-on-one time, which is a favourite among our Enrichment Specialists. 

When ready to go home, your pooch will be tired & Happy from a FUN stimulating Day with friends. But - your dog won’t be too tired to interact with you and/or the family so you can enjoy your time together.
