Dog Training Center
Here at Aardvark's, we are primarily an outdoor daycare. We have four large play yards into which the dogs are divided based on their size, temperament, and play style. All dogs that attend daycare must go through an initial evaluation to ensure that they are daycare appropriate. During the evaluation we will watch the dog for any signs of aggression towards another dog or any of our staff members as well as any signs of discomfort or stress due to the environment.
We have on-site trained staff 24 hours a day to make sure your puppies are safe during the day while they play as well as overnight while they sleep.
The staff practices positive reinforcement while working with the dogs to teach good manners and appropriate play styles.
**Please note: All evaluations must be pre-scheduled. We do not allow drop-ins. Evaluations are scheduled Tuesday-Friday ONLY and must be here by 8 AM. Expect a minimum 2 week wait time when scheduling evaluations.
Why is daycare good for dogs?
Daycare is highly beneficial for a variety of reasons: From helping a shy dog gain confidence to managing a bolder dog's daily shenanigans. It provides a fun, supervised environment where your dog can have positive interactions with other dogs.
Shy or timid dogs can benefit greatly from regular daycare sessions. Each dog is able to interact with as many or as few dogs as it chooses and will never be forced to play in a group in which they are uncomfortable. We ensure that every day is a positive experience so that each dog feels more comfortable and confident with every visit.
Another reason to enroll your dog into regular daycare sessions is if they show any signs of separation anxiety. Each day is filled with fun and safe distractions that will keep your dog stress free and out of trouble. With each visit we will help your dog feel more comfortable and keep them safe while being away from home and you.
Lastly, daycare is a simple, effective way to tire out your pup. It is very interactive and provides physical as well as mental exercise. We understand that between daily tasks and errands it can be tough to squeeze in even a 30-minute walk for your four-legged friend.
Remember a tired dog is a good dog!
