Day School

Our Day School is best in show.

Schoolwork and some play make your pet a good pup.

We’re the only day school facility in Calgary that is staffed entirely by certified dog trainers and has a curriculum developed by a DCBC, CPDT-KSA, and CBCC-KA certified dog trainer.

Below are some of the reasons that highlight the Dogma Difference:

  • At Dogma, we're more than just a daycare. We provide structured play, socialization, and training for your pup throughout their day with us.
  • We have the lowest dog-staff ratio with a max of 8 dogs per certified trainer.
  • We send report cards after each visit that outline your dog's progress with socialization, obedience, handling, self-control and more.
  • We provide our members with an online portal to track their dog's behaviour and progress.
  • Every Dogma dog starts their training journey with a one-on-one full day behaviour assessment with a senior trainer to ensure they’re placed in the best program for their specific needs

Rates and Requirements

We accept dogs of all breeds, ages, and sizes, but – just like with any great private school, your dog’s got to make the grade to get in.

Programs

Dogs are our business so the pleasure stays all yours.

Following your dog’s first day assessment, we’ll recommend one of the following levels:

KinderPups

The early stages of your dog’s life are a critical time for learning. KinderPups classes are active and adorable – perfect for energetic puppies.

Dogma High

After these structured training classes, your dog’s improved behaviour, obedience, social skills and impulse control will have them destined for the honour (sit, stay, and) roll(over).

Continuing Ed

Lifelong learning is for the dogs.

DogmaU

Follow up your dog’s DogmaHigh diploma with a DogmaU degree. Here they tackle a more advanced course load that focuses on mastering their manners and more advanced skills. Your dog still enjoys the added enrichment of Day School and continued training challenges and structured play.
