Doggie Day Care

*****Only accepting new clients under 40 pounds.  Please call or email for availability.***** 

Our business model has changed and effective immediately we are concentrating on small and medium size dogs only for our doggie daycare program.  We will still admit the occasional large breed dog as long as they are friendly and fairly calm in nature.  Please email ajaxpetcare@hotmail.com if interested on more information about our daycare program and to see if your dog qualifies for our program.

SmDayCare2Small Dog Play: On a typical day the smaller dogs play in their playgroups in our air conditioned indoor playrooms. These rooms are very large and provide lots of bedding and toys. We have an entire area in our backyard strictly for the little guys. They are let outside every hour for fresh air. Of course this time is adjusted depending on the weather conditions outside. All dogs are very sensitive to both hot and cold and are always watched carefully.  In the summer they also enjoy a nice swimming pool and of course fresh water is always available in every season.

 

Medium Dog Play: The medium size daycare dogs can go in either the small dog groups or the large dog groups. Again, this is an individual situation, which we can assess upon meeting your pet. If your medium size dog is “over the top energetic” and does well with the bigger dogs then that’s where we will put him/her. If your medium size dog is quieter or shyer then he/she will go with the small dogs.

Large Size Dogs: At this time we are only offering doggie daycare to larger dogs that are quieter in nature and not "over the top" full of energy.  Our business specializes in small to medium size dogs but we will allow in the occasional larger dog that is fairly calm. 

We have fresh cold water available 24/7 for all dogs. Regardless, the excitement of your pet going home will often result in excessive water drinking. Please limit their water intake to very small amounts for their first 15 minutes home to prevent diarrhea.

We ask our daycare clients to please remember that dogs play rough. They jump on each other's heads and play with their mouths. For this reason it is not uncommon for your dog to come home with some scratches and sometimes (but rarely) worse. Although every precaution is taken to ensure your pets stay with us is a safe one, we cannot be responsible for illness or injury which may occur. Any and all veterinary fees will be solely the responsibility of the pet owner.

Pricing

$25.00/day + HST. 2nd dog is 1/2 price. 

Tours are always encouraged but are up to the discretion of the receptionist working at the time.  If we are extremely busy we will sometimes (but not often) deny a tour simply based on putting the dogs needs first.

“They really are pet crazy . . . in a great way!”

We are extremely happy with the services Ajax Pet Care has provided to our family pets.  Leaving them behind is never easy, but we know they are such good care with the team at Ajax Pet Care. I highly recommend them for overnight stays or anything for that matter. They really are pet crazy . . . in a great way! ~B. Jones, Pickering, ON
