Good Hound Downtown
Thank you for your interest in our daycare at our Downtown 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 Downtown daycare applicants must have done either group or private training 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.
See Drop Down Menu for more information and rates
Good Hound Training is very excited to now offer daycare for your furry family members in Ladner and Tsawwassen’s only store front dog daycare and training facility! Our Downtown location offers 1400 square feet of dry, clean, air conditioned play space for your dogs to play right in the heart of Ladner. Dogs are matched according to size, age and playstyle by our 2 onsite certified dog trainers. We take proper and equal play seriously to make sure your dog is safe, happy and making the best friends possible. In addition to playtime, we also take time each day to review basic obedience skills with your dog. This way your dog will be physically and mentally tired when he/she goes home at the end of the day. Remember: a tired dog is a good dog which makes for happy owners!
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.
