Daycare at Country Canine Care provides a safe, fun environment for your dog to socialize, exercise and learn.

Daycare at Country Canine Care provides a safe, fun environment for your dog to socialize, exercise and learn.

A typical day starts off with closely supervised indoor, off leash play in our 2000 sq. foot radiant heated and fan cooled building. Once the dogs have been formally introduced to each other in a controlled environment they mix, mingle and play and then it’s time for our forest adventure walk – off or on leash. We head back to Country Canine Care for clean-up, brushing and tummy rubs. After a nap or quiet time, the remainder of the day is spent in smaller groups based on similarities to enjoy more off leash supervised play in our large 1.5 acre outdoor fenced yard (during extreme weather this time is avoided or delayed – dependent on Mother Nature’s agenda), engaging in brain games or resting.

Dogs are provided with fresh water the entire day, no treats are fed unless specified in your unique Care Plan. It is expected that dogs are fed at home unless otherwise requested (again please specify in your individual Care Plan). Keep in mind, this is our agenda, please take a few minutes and fill out your dog’s Country Canine Care Plan to ensure your dog’s unique requirements are met.

Enrolling your Dog in Daycare

We truly believe that one size does not fit all, so we welcome your input. Please call to arrange an initial meet and greet prior to registering for day care. During this appointment, we will assess your dog and have you fill out the necessary forms (found here on the website for review). Please call to arrange a meet and greet appointment.

We can work with your schedule for drop off and pick up times for daycare.


Fun at Daycare!

My husband and I are so happy to hear Deb is back in the Valley and offering her dog training services again! In the past we took 2 of our dogs to her, loved her style of training and had great success with our dogs and their obedience. We had our dogs go from puppy classes, to basic obedience, then to agility and on to scent tracking with Deb. She is a very knowledgeable and professional dog trainer with years of experience. We would not hesitate to recommend her. We look forward to bringing our future puppies/dogs to her.

“We sent our dog Cooper to stay at Country Canine Care for a week. He was so excited when we dropped him off. There was not an ounce of anxiety in our usually anxious dog. He spent the week being loved and exercised. We picked him up happy and tired from all his exercise. We would recommend Lisadawn and Rich in a heartbeat. Their love of dogs and compassion to our anxious dog was obvious to both us and to him.”

“I met Debbie just under a year ago … she pegged the age of our pup Taz at 9 weeks old … I was very impressed with her in the few minutes we chatted … we called Debbie for an assessment and have been working with her since. Her love for dogs and her work with them is without question. Taz and I attended her puppy class this summer; it was just the right size. Her professionalism and no nonsense attitude made the classes both educational and fun. We will continue to work with Debbie as our trainer and would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to train their dog properly.”

“Country Canine Care is the BEST!!! My dog Mischief loves it there and gets the best care ever…. she gets picked up and dropped off from the house which makes it so much easier as I don’t need to be worrying about getting to work on time, and she comes home clean, walked, brushed and happy. She’s almost disappointed to be home! I would recommend Country Canine Care to anyone looking for a fun, caring and safe dog care service provider.”

We were in way over our heads with our high drive, strong willed, rapidly over-powering German Shepherd puppy and by the time we reached out to Deb we had been considering re-homing as an option. The joy of our first family puppy was quickly becoming overwhelmingly stressful.

Together, working in both group and private lessons, Deb was able to effectively assess our dog, our lifestyle, and our needs. She provided us with practical, simple and effective training techniques that gave us hope. She clearly has a huge wealth of training knowledge, a deep admiration and respect for various canine breeds and an uncanny ability to ‘speak’ dog. Deb, hands down, saved our family from the heartbreak of re-homing our furry family member and we cannot recommend her enough for your dog training needs.
