Come Over Rover - Daycamp and so much more!
A Day at Come Over Rover
We keep each day interesting and exciting with lots of fun activities, including walks, hikes, training sessions and even the occasional art project! We disguise learning with fun by playing brain-activating games that encourage good behaviour.
And, of course, no day is complete without hours of indoor and outdoor playtime. The dogs are always directly supervised and are given gentle human feedback to encourage appropriate interactions and polite play manners.
Each dog receives one-on-one attention throughout the day, including training, encouragement, and oodles of love!
At the end of every day, the dogs are happy, tired and excited to see their people at pick up time!
Trainer Tara incorporates learning into each and every activity! Our daycamp doggies spend time working on everything from basic obedience to correcting behavioural issues using tried and true, rewards-based methods.
While some of the best tools for keeping dogs on their best behaviour are exercise and socialization, we also understand it's important for your dog to have consistent boundaries. This is why we work with you to ensure the way we interact with your dog works in harmony with your training methods and home environment.
We believe that every moment is an opportunity for a dog to learn and grow and we do our best to make it fun and enjoyable for all our visitors. We often trick our pups into training by playing games that are designed to promote good behaviour and confidence.
We’re always more than happy at any time to take a moment to discuss your pet’s behaviour and to find out how we can help at daycare with any training goals you may be working towards.
We know that nothing's worse than dropping off a clean dog and picking a mucky one up! That's why our daycare rates include a wipe down, or rinse and towel dry for when your pet happens to get a little dirtier than usual. We use all-natural bath products we make in-house to send your Rover home fresh!
We can also provide bathing, blowdrying, brushing, and nail trims upon request with some notice. Ask us for details!
Because we only take 10 dogs per day, we ask that each of our furry clients attend at least one regularly scheduled weekday each week. This helps to keep our groups familiar and our schedule fair for all our clients. Of course, we’re happy to accommodate the occasional weekly schedule change, including adding in extra days if we have availability.
Daycamp is open Monday through Friday 7:00am to 5:30pm
While we can occasionally provide extended hours, we are unable to take on clients who would need to regularly drop off or pick up outside of our business hours. Depending on our schedule, we may also be able to provide weekend daycare and boarding.
Please note that we often have a wait list for daycare enrollment.
We are unable to give accurate indications of how quickly we may move through our wait list at any time. Available daycare spots are first offered to our current clients, then to our wait listers according to their availability and date of first contact.
If you're eager to get your Rover started , flexibility in your initial schedule can help us help you!
For instance, if your desired schedule is Tuesdays and Thursdays, but you're willing to having your Rover start one day a week on Wednesdays, we may be able to get him in weeks earlier! Then, as a current client, you'd be first in line to pop over to your desired days as soon as they open up.
Enrolling Your Dog in Daycamp
At Come Over Rover Doggy Daycamp, we don't discriminate against breed, size or age. All dogs are welcome!
Provided there are no aggression issues or safety concerns, we're happy to have puppies and dogs with minor behavioural issues join our crew. We have the knowledge and experience to help with on-going training.
Our screening process ensures the protection and well-being of all our furry visitors. Your pet’s health and happiness are our top priorities.
Before your dog's first day at Come Over Rover, we'd like to invite you and your pet over for an after-hours informal Meet & Greet to show you around and answer any questions you might have. From there we'll schedule a trial day so we can introduce your Rover to the crew and ensure he's comfortable and happy.
Our apologies, but unfortunately we cannot accept:
Unneutered/unspayed dogs over the age of 9 months
Dogs who are not up to date on their vaccinations
Dogs with potential health or behavioural issues that pose a threat to themselves,
other animals or people.
Dogs who are not potty trained to the level expected for their age.
