Doggie Daycare & Overnight Stay Enrollment

To enroll in Petopia’s doggie daycare or overnight stay programs, all dogs must go through our initial consultation and evaluation process, as known as the trial day. You must first make an appointment for a trial.

  • Trial daycare – only required for dogs over 1 year of age
  • Trial overnight – required for all dogs regardless of age

At this time, one of our experienced staff will learn about your dog’s social, behavioural and medical history, explain our services, answer any questions and give you a complete tour of our facility. Initial Consultations for new clients¬†can be scheduled any day of the week¬†by appointment only. Dogs must arrive before 9am on weekdays and 10am on weekends for their trial day.

 

For availability information or to schedule a consultation, please contact us today at 416.429.7387 or at info@petopia.ca.

 

There is no cost for trial day of daycare (only required for dogs over the age of 1 year). For the overnight trial, the cost is $25. Because of Petopia’s social and cage-free environment, it is extremely important that all dogs be non-aggressive and able to get along with a group of dogs. During the trial day, we can observe how your fur baby interacts with other dogs and acclimate to the daycare environment. This will also help us determine which playgroup your four-legged friend is best suited for. We are concerned not only for your dog’s safety, but for the safety of all the other dogs that play at Petopia as well. We ask that you fill out all the necessary paperwork prior to your dog’s trial daycare or overnight stay.
