Located in downtown Toronto at Pack of Paws Dog Daycare our goal is to provide the most comfortable, mentally stimulating environment for your dogs when you are at work. Dogs are pack animals by nature and thrive on the daily interaction with other like-minded companions, this type of socialization is crucial in helping maintain the mental and physical well-being of your furry family member. When you’re at work, Pack of Paws ensures that your dogs are given the love and care they deserve as well as providing the exercise and socialization that you can’t give them on a daily basis. We are also the first dog daycare in Toronto that welcomes ALL breeds and will consider dogs solely based on temperament and their socialization skills.
Throughout the day, they will be taken for leashed bathroom breaks and walks around the neighbourhood. We will also take our high energy dogs to a designated off-leash park or even a pack rollerblade to burn off that extra energy! In the daycare we engage in training excersise that will engage your dog mentally, play fetch (controlled by us), learn basic commands and even proper dog play etiquette. We practice and believe in non-verbal energy based training methods to control our pack. We try to ensure we are always projecting calm assertive energies when dealing with our pack, which helps to establish ourselves not only as loving caretakers but their pack leaders as well.
We offer homestyle boarding which means your dog will be staying their nights in our homes and during the day they will be able to accompany us to “work” everyday.
Please note that this service is primarily only provided to our current daycare clients and only on rare occasions do we take new boarding clients.
- Rate can vary depending on length of stay

With comfy couches, soft rugs, dog beds and specialized rubber flooring we can ensure that whether the dogs are romping around or taking a deep snooze their comfort and safety will always be addressed.
We designed our play space to feel as “cage-free” as possible and even put custom windows in our gates so the dogs always feel like they are part of all the action. We are lucky to have a great green space right across the street (Lamport Stadium) and also be within a 5 minute walk to one of the best off-leash dog parks in Toronto – South Stanley Dog Park.
We have two separate play areas in the daycare to help us properly match dogs with similar energy levels and temperaments, thus providing us the flexibility to control pack dynamics and maintain harmonious environment at all times. We work really hard uphold the highest hygienic standards and use high quality cleaning products. We hear all the time from our clients that our daycare always smells so nice (not an easy task with 20 dogs running around all day).
Our clients mean a lot
“Pack of Paws is the best! I was so worried I wouldn”t be able to find a place for my rescue dog Mitzi because she is fearful of other dogs but Jeff and Diana loved her from day one and worked tirelessly with her issues. She now has several doggy pals and is a happier more well-adjusted dog! The favourite part of my day is going to pick her up, I could spend forever watching her run around and play with the other dogs. Jeff and Diana always go well out of their way for her and the other dogs and I am so glad to have them nearby.”
“Thank god for Pack of Paws – Lao has been with them since their opening day in Aug. I rescued Lao from Tokyo in 2007 and since he came from an abusive home he has always been timid around new people – POP has made Lao extremely comfortable and has given him a safe haven when mommy is at work. Diana and Jeff have gone beyond their call of duty to accommodate my busy schedule – they have dropped Lao off at the condo when needed (I trust them 100% with the keys to my place), their hours of operation (7am – 6:30pm) are very helpful for those who have to go into the office early and stay later, alternatives for weekend/holiday boarding, etc. For the next 6 months we are fostering a doggie from Mexico – Lucy has already made POP her home away from home and has settled in great. Thank you so much Pack of Paws for opening in Liberty Village and giving me a piece of mind that my doggies are doing amazing in your care. I would recommend you guys to anyone.”
“I’m so grateful to have Pack of Paws in the neighborhood. They are so amazing, my little guy Chopper just loves going there and enjoys himself so much. The owners are amazing people; they treat my dog like it’s their own. It is amazing. Chopper loves it! The morning that he goes, he gets super excited to go and every evening after we get home, he sleeps like a puppy. There isn’t enough word to describe how amazing this doggy daycare is, you won’t be disappointed with them at all. Chopper has been to another doggy daycares in the city (before Packs of Paws opened their doors), and every time I would drop him off and pick him up he didn’t like it. When I dropped him off in the morning didn’t want to go in and when I picked him up he was running out the door. Thank you for opening here, and treating Chopper like one of your own.”
“Our dog Fred absolutely loves his time at Pack of Paws. He gets lots and lots of exercise and lots and lots of love. Diana and Jeff are great dog lovers and great business owners. Can’t recommend them enough.”
