We understand that life is busy, but we also understand that puppyhood goes by quickly and is the most critical time to ensure we create the ideal urbanK9! kinderPUPS provides the solution by providing a comprehensive program that covers training, socialization, overall manners and problem behaviour prevention.
Calgary's only dog daycare exclusively for puppies to help develop the ultimate urbanK9!
dogma is setting the standards again with our newest puppy daycare and training program! We believe in education and improving canine reputations. We know that our work with puppies is the key to developing a confident, well-socialized urbanK9. We also understand that most of us live very busy lives. However, we do not feel that should mean that our puppies should miss out on an important time for training and socializing. And we believe that puppies that attend our daycare need a specialized program and individual attention to ensure a successful integration into our human world and your family.
Welcome to kinderPUPS! dogma's daycare program designed specifically for puppies! We have designed special areas within our regular daycare just for kinderPUPS participants to spend their entire day with a certified trainer! dogma has developed daily programs to help with socialization, training and addressing/preventing common behaviour problems. We offer outdoor add on's every day around the facility, which is a great opportunity for active socialization, as well as, bi-weekly field trips around Calgary to various locations. Where puppies can go on an adventure with their friends to meet new people, and explore different environments, all to help create a positive experience for your pup.
