Why bring your dog to a Doggy Daycare when you can go to school instead?

dogma takes the concept of doggy daycare and turns it on its head! There are NO little dog packs running around in an unruly environment, at dogma. We limit the number of dogs in each class to a maximum of 10, in order to maintain our strict safety protocols.

PLUS, your dog is trained by a certified dog trainer, while he or she is in our care. That’s the difference between a dog daycare and a day school!

We are the only dog daycare facility in Calgary that has a curriculum developed by a DCBC, CPDT-KSA, and a CBCC-KA certified dog trainer. That means your dog gets to take advantage of a level of instruction that’s usually only offered to people attending high level dog training classes. Instead your dog gets that kind of training, while you’re at work, or out and about doing your thing.


Getting your puppy started off on the right paw is our goal for kinderPUPS. The early stages of your dog’s life is a critical time for learning, and we want to make the best of it. That’s why we make sure these classes are limited in size, and that your puppy gets individual attention with one of our certified trainers. The classes are fun and active, with lots of time for rest and play, so that your puppy can have the best day possible.


Just like in high school, your dog will rotate through five subjects: Math, Creative Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Gym. Everyday is filled with new challenges, learning experiences, and fun activities to keep your dog busy and happy all day long. And the best part – your dog gets to show off a new trick or two when you get home.


Once your dog has achieved a dogma High diploma, it’s on to advanced education! The dogmaU curriculum works on your dog’s basic obedience skills, socialization, manners, and a whole lot more. As your dog attains each degree, he or she will be mastering the skills necessary to be a polite and well-behaved dog you can be proud of!


When your dog has mastered basic obedience, manners, attention, and socialization, an invitation is extended to join the Free Play group! These dogs have earned their free time to romp and play together, monitored by one of our trained team members. It’s fun and exciting for all!


We accept all breeds, ages, and sizes of dog, just like any great private school, your dog has to pass some requirements in order to make the roster.


If you want to put your dog on the fast track, take advantage of the extra training and tutoring packages we offer. It will put your dog on an accelerated learning path. Choose from additional training and play times, special treats, spa treatments, and/or grooming services, to make it a really awesome day for your pooch!
