Turn an ordinary day into a play day for your dog!

TK-9’s spacious play areas feature lots of room and fun equipment where dogs can romp, socialize and explore—and are always monitored by our trainers and staff.

And if your puppy needs daycare, TK-9 has a special section just for dogs from 9 weeks to 12 months old. We’ll also show your puppy how to play nicely with others and help him or her with crate and potty training.

Our puppies, Rollo and Huck, have gone to Tecla Academy for daycare each and every day since they were about 4 and 5 months old. Both LOVE the staff and other dogs at daycare. We are always notified if the pups didn’t finish food and any other quick updates upon pickup. We love the socialization they are receiving and that they get to run out some of that puppy energy! The puppies also completed the Purely Positive Puppy course which has helped immensely in their journey of learning manners! 🙂

Love Tecla’s K-9 Academy!!! My dog Reagen loves going to play with her friends at daycare. The staff is professional, friendly, and they show so much love to my sweet girl. The facility is clean and very quiet. Not your typical daycare when you walk in and all you hear is dogs barking. We enjoy a calm drop off with classical music!
