Worry Free Fun for Dogs and Their People

Free Play doggy daycare is a great social environment for dogs who are easy going and want to have fun. We have multiple large play areas for active dogs to burn off their energy. During a full day of play, your canine pal will release some of his or her pent-up, excess energy in a satisfying, productive way. You’ll notice the difference when you bring your dog home from daycare.


Different than a Dog Park

Our Free Play differs from a dog park in that each group is monitored by one of our skilled Canine Coaches to ensure all play is reciprocated and enjoyed by all canines involved. Smaller play groups can ensure that our shyer friends are not getting overwhelmed, and our excited friends have the right playmate to match their enthusiasm.


Assessment Day

Each canine friend is fully evaluated on their first day or when it has been a long span between visits. This evaluation allows us to find the best play group and accommodations for each dogs’ individual needs. This evaluation will include dog to dog social interactions, handling by staff, and housing for rest breaks. Please allow a minimum of 6 hours on this first very important day.


Our Free Play doggy daycare service is hassle-free for our canine clients and pet parents alike. No appointments are necessary, and our service is here in east-central Calgary for you seven days a week from 5:30 AM until 9:00 PM. Some behaviour and health restrictions apply. Please see below for registration and assessment forms.


Assessment Evaluation Extension

Some dogs need time to settle into a new environment. The assessment extension allows a slow introduction, assistance with appropriate play, confidence, and pacing themselves. This extra support is available for up to 5 days including their initial evaluation. This will help to determine if Free Play is the right program for your pup. If it’s not, that’s okay; we have other program that may suit your pup better. It is important that these extra evaluations happen within a 3-month period to allow learning retention.


*Please note that when an assessment is performed during a boarding stay the extended evaluation will continue their next stay
