Our Approach to Doggy and Puppy Daycare
DogPlay takes an individualized approach to dog daycare in Vancouver. We only accept one new dog per day so we can take the time to understand their strengths, identify where they can improve, and learn about what motivates them. From there we provide a custom mix of training, socialization, and exercise that’s best suited to that particular dog.
We use positive reinforcement to work on impulse control and to help train the basics: recalls, sits, and stays. With a foundation in place from these basics we can move on to shaping more advanced behaviours and engaging the dogs with more exciting activities!
This means we don’t need to spend time worrying about stopping problem behaviors because our dogs always have lots of constructive activities to keep them entertained and engaged throughout the day!

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the requirements for my dog to attend doggy daycare?
You will need to show proof of vaccination for Rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella. Titer tests are also accepted. Dogs over 8 months old must be spayed or neutered. While we do our best to work with a wide range of behavioral issues, we are not able to accept any aggressive dogs.
How do I book a first day for dog daycare?
You will first need to register an account with DogPlay by clicking the register now button. Once you have created an account you can then make a reservation request and a DogPlay staff member will contact you to work out the details.
Do I need a reservation after my first day?
Yes! We have a maximum capacity that we reach on a daily basis and are rarely able to accommodate drop-ins for daycare.
Are there any restrictions on size or breed?
No. All pups are welcome to our doggy and puppy daycare facility in Vancouver!
Do you separate small dogs and big dogs in doggy daycare?
Size plays a big role in deciding where your dog will be during their stay in doggy daycare. We also take into account age, breed, temperament, energy levels and training requirements.
Do the dogs get outside?
Yes! All dogs get out for as many bathroom breaks as they require. We work very hard to maintain proper elimination habits. All dogs who are able also get out for a walk around our neighborhood in Vancouver during the day.

“Dusty is very excited when we arrive, but has learnt to walk calmly to the door (thank you!). And he is tired when I pick him up! Dusty is a happier and better behaved dog – the change was noticeable within days.
The DogPlay team are very passionate about what they do and care about each and every dog. I am very pleased that I found DogPlay for Dusty. It is truly a fantastic place.”
“Best doggy day-care ever! We’ve brought our beloved fur-child to quite a few places and was looking specifically for a place that has a balance of free play-time and structured play-time.
Most importantly, we were looking for a place that would love our fur-child as much as we do. DogPlay is everything we could have ever hoped for!”
“Wow what an amazing experience & place. Hawker our yellow lab is 6 months old and it was his first time to doggie day care. I can not express how caring and understanding the staff at Dog Play are.
Hawker is a high energy puppy that doesn’t seem to rest and just after lunch I walked over and took a peak to see how he was doing (parent anxiety) and there he was laying calmly next to 4 other dogs happy as could be.”
