Good Hound Country
Thank you for your interest in our daycare at our GH Country Location! Please read carefully as our admission requirements have changed.
Keepin’ it in the Good Hound Family!
*Due to the overwhelming demand for daycare, we are now only accepting a limited amount of new daycare applicants who meet our new requirements. All new Country daycare applicants must have done either group or private training or have booked in boarding with us. While we would truly love to take care of all your pups, we only have so much space and we pride ourselves in a low dog to handler ratio. We thank you for your understanding and support.
Good Hound Country is our brand new addition, located only 10min away from Good Hound Downtown at 3697 40th street!
Good Hound Country is proud to be able to offer your dogs the best that daycare has to offer! With 1500 sq ft of play space inside and a secured ,6000 sq ft outside, we have what your dog is looking for!
We have 5 different play areas for your dog to choose from- indoor, outdoors, covered outdoors, sensory garden we have it all! And in pure Good Hound style we will carefully match your dog to their play group and play environment by our onsite certified trainers.
All dogs are matched by age, size, and play. Play is 100% supervised and monitored to ensure everyone is safe and playing fair. In addition to playtime, we also take the time to review basic obedience skills like recall, sit, wait and stay.
Our goal is for your dog to be both mentally and physically tired at the end of the day!
Education is our Foundation! Its scary leaving your pet in the care of someone else. We get it. This is why we believe in education and certifications. Owner Andrew Richards is a certified and practicing dog trainer from the Animal Behaviour College and owner Mallory Richards is a certified and practicing Walks n Wage Pet First Aid Instructor. But education doesnt stop with us. Here at Good Hound we make sure all of our staff is highly educated and continually learning in the areas of positive reinforcement training, dog behaviour, proper dog play and first aid. We are a Certified Fear Free facility as our owners, managers and supervisors have all graduated from the Fear Free Daycare and Boarding Program. All of our staff have graduated with certificates from the Dog Handler Academy, certified in Walks N Wags Pet First Aid, are trained in dog behaviour by our certified dog trainers and partake in our Good Hound Education Incentive program where we pay them to take Continuing Education Courses in all things relating to pet care and training. We take the safety and security of your dogs very seriously!
