will waverly daycareThe Daycare Experience

TK-9 strives to provide a unique and exceptional daycare experience for all dogs regardless of age, breed or play style! Owners have peace of mind knowing our social rooms are constantly supervised by both TK-9 trainers & staff members. Our all-enclosed indoor daycare areas ensure complete safety by removing dogs' ability to climb over or dig under outdoor fences. In addition to this, it allows for a completely temperature controlled play environment. Whether your pup is interacting with other dogs or exploring on the play equipment, they are bound to receive a full day of fun, exercise and mental stimulation at TK-9 Daycare!

Please call our office at (410) 461-DOGS or contact us online to schedule your dogs first day.

Puppy Daycare

With the hectic pace of life, it is sometimes hard for owners to give their new puppies the time, structure and consistency they need. TK9's puppy daycare provides a safe and positive environment where puppies can receive proper socialization with both dogs and people throughout the day. Designed specifically for dogs between the ages of 9 weeks to 12 months, our puppy daycare allows puppies to burn energy while learning acceptable play manners with other dogs their age. In addition to this, our daily routine creates a sense of structure and stability for your pup, which in return helps with both crate and potty training. We use positive means to extinguish behaviors such as jumping and vocalizing in the crate.


Please call our office at (410) 461-DOGS or contact us online to schedule your dogs first day.

academys Academy Sessions

At TK-9, one of our main goals is to send every dog home with better skills than they walked in with. One of the many ways we achieve this is through Academy training sessions. Academies are dedicated to reinforcing basic commands that you are working on at home with your pup! We offer these sessions Monday - Friday during both daycare and boarding for a small fee of $15. Each one-on-one session will focus on practicing a few obedience skills of your choice! Being able to work with highly trained staff members in an environment that inevitably incorporates the distraction of other dogs and people can help tremendously with improving your pup's skillset. Along with the physical exercise from daycare, signing up for an academy can also give your dog the mental exercise they need. Sign up today!

Academy sessions are not intended to resolve any behavioral issues.

Skills Covered: 

  • Basic Obedience
  • Puppy Obedience
  • Confidence Building Leash Work
  • Nosework Practice
