A professional approach to dog care

The care programs used at Good Dog Ranch & Spa’s daycare and boarding services are designed and overseen by Certified Professional Dog Trainers with an extensive and diverse education in dog behaviour, health and safety.

We will reinforce good manners and obedience while you are away - whether just for the day, or for long-term boarding and everything in between! Your dog will be provided with mentally and physically stimulating exercises to keep their mind and body occupied to prevent the anxiety of being separated from their normal routines.

Based on your dog’s social skills, they will enjoy daily social play time in tightly controlled playgroups or independent exercise with one of our amazing caregivers in order to burn off their energy! The day is followed by bonding time with our team including massage, general grooming, and mentally enriching (and fun!) activities to help keep them well-adjusted and satisfied throughout the day. We provide custom dog care and will cater to every one of your dog’s needs (and your requests!).

Our main boarding building was destroyed in the big storm at the end of August 2015 here in British Columbia by a 200 foot tree that fell on it. We are grateful to report that nobody (dog or human) was hurt. Because of the loss of this building, we are taking much fewer boarding dogs (overnight care) so please don’t delay in getting your requests in!

We will be re-building a bigger and better building for our services in 2018. For now, we are boarding the fur-kids in our “house” building, and in order for your dog to be comfortable in these quarters they must be relaxed sleeping in a crate. 

A few Ranch facility highlights:

  • Over an acre and a half of land for your dog to explore and enjoy

  • Our buildings are air-conditioned - heated in the winter and cooled in the summer

  • Orthopaedic Kuranda beds to keep your dog comfortable when they need a nap!

  • “Through a Dog’s Ear” calming music to sooth your dog to sleep when they are inside for nap or sleep overnight

  • Vet recommended lavender essential oil diffuser to help relax the fur kids

  • Full grooming salon - book your dog’s regular groom with Good Dog and/or add on basic grooming services to have your furry one come home looking and smelling better than ever

Enriching, Fun and Safe Environment

Is your dog bored at home while you are at work or you need more spare time during the day?
 
At Good Dog, your dog will be taken care of by Certified Professional Dog Trainers
who will manage the pack to ensure appropriate behaviour is maintained at all times.

We are a daycare unlike any other in that we offer an enrichment style, training-based daycare with a membership program. You choose the day(s) that you would like your dog to attend each week and secure a spot for your dog to participate in our program. We charge for the appropriate number of days on the first of the month and your dog comes to enjoy the fantastic daily schedule we provide here at the Ranch.  

We accept far fewer daycare dogs than any other daycare in order to maintain a more intimate relationship with each dog and client and control the enrichment-day experience. The structure for the dogs during the day is deliberately set up to optimize exercise AND learning, leading to happy, well-balanced dogs at the end of the day.

Your daycare membership also comes with some amazing perks including quarterly “parent-teacher” conferences, monthly report cards on how your dog is doing at daycare and discounts on other Good Dog services based on your membership level.

A Daycare Member’s Day in the Life at Good Dog

We follow a consistent daily schedule to ensure each and every dog in our care receives the perfect amount of physical and mental stimulation daily with a mixture of group play, one-on-one attention and quiet time. 

The regular schedule allows your dog to have a routine, which helps create a relaxed and stable environment to set your dog up for success. 

Daily Daycare Members’s Schedule

7:00am - 8:00am - Good Morning! 

Daycare dogs start to arrive and relax inside until we are ready to start the daily activities.

8:00am - 11:00am - Let’s PLAY! 

Play time is customized for each individual dog and will include a combine physical and mental stimulation including: select small playgroups, group leashed walks, individual leash walks, ball throws, field runs, fitness training, time with interactive toys and training games/activities. 

11:00am - 12:00pm - Health & Wellness.

Each dog will receive individual time with our staff where they will receive a massage, wellness check and maintenance brushing - this helps to settle the kids after playtime and provides a unique opportunity to bond with our caregivers, helping them feel like they truly are at their “home away from home”. 

12:00pm - 1:00pm - Afternoon nap. 

The dogs need a structured break from all the fun in order to prevent over-stimulation, which can very easily lead to stress. Each dog will come inside to their individual sleeping areas for an afternoon nap. You may choose to bring a chew or favourite toy for them to have during their nap time. If your dog gets fed lunch we will feed it during this time.

1:00pm - 5:00pm - Second play time of the day! (Same customized play schedule as above.)

5:00pm - 7:00pm - Quiet time and dinners. 

All the daycare dogs are cleaned up if they got dirty from playing during the day and then settle down for some quiet time before their parents pick them up. If you provide dinner it will be fed during this time.
