Day Camp

Step into the future of dog training with our innovative program! It’s the board and train experience, but your dog enjoys the comfort of home. Drop them off 3-5 times a week for exciting daycare fused with daily training sessions. After 12 sessions, we’ll bring the skills to your doorstep for a firsthand look. Picture your pup as the off-leash superstar, mastering socialization, and acing commands like heel, sit, stay, come, down, and place. Manners training is a breeze, and you get exclusive access to group classes plus unlimited in-home sessions to ensure the training has worked.

In-Home Training

Take charge of your dog’s training adventure with our lively In-Home program—an interactive experience for those who love being in the driver’s seat! Weekly meet-ups are brimming with energy as we tackle a couple of commands and troubleshoot any issues. You lead the way during the week, perfecting those skills, and then we reunite for the next thrilling session, unraveling new commands together. Enjoy flexible scheduling, master commands like heel, sit, stay, come, down, and place, plus unlimited in-home sessions and VIP access to our exclusive group classes!

Puppy Training

Step into the world of puppy parenting with our lively Puppy Basics program! In just three sessions, we’ll equip you with techniques to handle the unique challenges and joys of owning a young pup. Experience the flexibility of scheduling that suits your lifestyle, a convenient pay-per-session approach, and personalized sessions crafted to meet your individual needs. From crate and potty training to addressing nipping, biting, jumping, and introducing essential commands like sit, come, and down—this program is your upbeat guide to navigating the dynamic landscape of puppyhood!

Training & Enrichment Details and Guidelines

  • Combine your dog boarding with a training program. This program offers convenience and complete immersion. Dogs are thoroughly socialized during their stay and they are taken through training each day. After we’ve trained the dog at our facility, we’ll bring your best friend home to you and take you through the training. The program has group classes that allow you to train around other dogs and distractions.
  • With leash and collar training  we will meet with you at your home and teach your dog to be obedient and walk nicely with you on leash. Includes a prong collar.

We’re so happy you’re considering us for your best friend’s needs! Before any dog can participate in training, daycare, or boarding they must pass an evaluation and have up-to-date vaccine records for Bordetella, Distemper, Rabies, and Influenza vaccines. You can upload you vaccine records and request an evaluation by CLICKING HERE TO CREATE A PROFILE.

We require up-to-date vaccination records for Bordetella, Distemper, Rabies, and Influenza. These records must be uploaded through your profile and vaccination records must be current at the time of drop of for any dog to come into the facility.

All dogs over 1 year must be neutered/spayed for the safety of your dog, with no exceptions.

We welcome dogs of all ages and do our absolute best to keep them comfortable! We are always aware of each individual dog’s needs and pay attention to each of them carefully.

If your dog requires medications, we will administer them according to your instructions to the best of our ability.

We do require that all medication comes in its original packaging.

The two most important things to bring with your dog for boarding are food and medication. We require that food is in a resealable container, such as plastics bins or ziploc bags. We also require that medication comes in its original packaging. Please do not add medication to food, we can do that for you at the time of feeding if needed. If your dog does not have enough food, we can feed your dog our house food for $3 a bowl.

If you would like to bring in bedding and 1-2 toys with your dog for boarding, we will happily set these up in your dogs room.

An evaluation is how Queen City Canine will assess if your dog is a good fit for our facility. Our handlers will take the dog into a play yard and introduce them to a few dogs at the facility. We will assess how your dog does while meeting new dogs and interacting with them for 15-20 minutes. If the dog does well, they are encouraged to stay and play for a few hours (free of charge!) so that we can see them meet the rest of their play group.

We ask that owners plan to stay for 15-20 minutes during the evaluation. While the dog is being evaluated, owners are invited to take a tour of our facility and learn about our services.

The dogs at Queen City Canine are on an alternating schedule of playtime and rest time. All dogs will go out to play in their respective groups at 8:00 am each day. They will play for an hour, then come in to rest for an hour, then play again for an hour, etc. They will continue this schedule until 6:00 pm.

During inclement weather (e.g. heavy rain, high temperatures, storms, etc.) we will rotate the dogs in our temperature controlled, indoor play area.

We serve breakfast around 7 a.m. each morning after their first round of play time and we serve dinner at 4 p.m. If you are boarding two dogs together, we feed them separately unless you request otherwise. If your dog needs a slow-feeder, let us now at check in and we can provide one for you.
