 What makes The Hound Lounge different?

We pride ourselves on our warm, friendly, home-like environment. A cozy fireplace and friendly staff will greet you as you enter our reception. You will soon discover that the best is what happens beyond the reception area. It’s our playrooms!

Daycare packages are designed to fit your needs. Bring your dog for a few hours, a half day or a full day. Reservations are required. All dogs must be pre-screened prior to their first visit.

Our handlers are fully trained leaders of the pack who specialize in keeping the play fun and safe. We have a fully fenced outdoor area for fresh air play and potty breaks, as well as quiet rooms for anyone wanting a bit of space to wind down. Seniors and puppies love these areas.

We do our best to accommodate tours right after the pre-screen meeting and greet. Please call ahead to make an appointment today!


Dog Daycare

Our dog daycare rates allow you to bring your dog in for a few hours, half a day or a full day. You choose the day and make a reservation.

At The Hound Lounge your Dog will have a fun filled day with balanced playtime, including outside time and rest time.  Our Playroom Attendants are professionally trained in Canine Behaviour, Canine Self Defense and Dog to Dog Aggression through Canine Foundations (www.caninefoundations.com) as well as fully training from The Dog Gurus (www.thedoggurus.com) in Knowing Dogs 101 and Group Play 201.  Our playrooms are fully supervised. We know how to keep the play fun and safe.  When you pick up your buddy, he/she will be ready to come home relaxed and content to enjoy an evening with you.   


Our rooms are built with 3/8” rubber flooring for excellent traction and cushioning. We have lots of fun playground equipment, toys, beds to rest on, and fresh water is replenished often.


All dogs joining us must be pre-screened to ensure daycare is right for them.  We ask that you make an appointment for this assessment.  We also have a questionnaire that will help us understand your dog.  You can download a Daycare Application Form here.

Dogs will enjoy state of the art kennel suites for their overnight time with us. Boarding includes full access to our indoor playgrounds, all day.  Since not all dogs enjoy group play, our boarding guests must first pass a temperament test. Our first concern is always for the safety and enjoyment of all of our dogs. Dog aggressive dogs will find our facility stressful and therefore are not a good fit. Here is a copy of our Boarding Email Questionnaire. For fastest service please call our office 705-728-5211.

Boarding is only available with advanced reservation. Please call to make your reservation early to avoid disappointment.  Our cancelation and early pick up policy is noted below. Please review.
