Playtime - Cold Weather Indoor Play Hours
The Canine Coach provides a warm indoor space for social dogs to play during our cold months. We have designated hour-long sessions, listed below, for Small dogs (< 25 lbs) and Larger dogs (> 25 lbs).
Please read this entire page carefully. Your dog must be friendly with unfamiliar dogs and people. You attend with and are responsible for your dog. You assume all risk inherent in playtimes.
Playtimes are supervised. The supervisor is there to enforce the Rules of Play (see below) which aid in maintaining a safe and clean environment. However, the supervisor cannot watch all dogs and people at all times. Each participant is responsible for their own dog's behavior.
Price: $40 for 5 Sessions; $10 for one time
Register: You Must Call To Hold A Spot (space is strictly limited)
Call the phone number listed next to the playtime you want to attend to hold your spot. Playtimes during severe weather are the most popular. Leave a clear message stating:
***IF YOU DO NOT HEAR BACK, YOUR SPOT IS CONFIRMED. We will only call you back if the playtime is full, or if there is not enough interest and we have to cancel.
Please call us if you can no longer attend, so we can open up your spot.
There is one playtime supervisor on premises. He or she will float between play areas to answer questions and facilitate Rules of Play.
Indoor Play Experience - Not for everyone.
Indoor play can be more intense than at outdoor parks due to the enclosed space. Come expecting high arousal especially during the first 15 - 20 minutes. Not all dogs can handle this intense energy level. There is not sufficient space to move away if desired. Hence, some dogs that play well at an outdoor dog park may not do well in this environment. They may be overwhelmed or even become aggressive. Other dogs become too aroused to play nicely. The playtime supervisor may deem this to be the case with your dog and require your dog to leave. If this is required within the first 15 minutes, your fee will be refunded.
Not All Dogs Can Play With All Dogs, In All Situations
Dogs come in various sizes, intensity levels, behaviors and play styles. Not all dogs get along with all dogs all the time. We may require a dog to leave if s/he is not a good fit for the majority of the dogs in that particular play session. This dog may even be friendly, but trigger aggressive behavior due to a mismatch in behavior. Please politely respect the opinion of the supervisor, despite feeling extremely disappointed.
During any gathering of dogs, there is a risk of injury or illness. This could be from jumping, running, body contact, a bite, or saliva from another dog. You assume this risk by arriving on the premises of the playtime.
Rules of Play
