Metro Dogs Is Offering Professional Puppy Daycare Services in Minneapolis, MN

Metro Dogs announces the offering of high-quality, professional puppy daycare services in Minneapolis, MN.

Metro Dogs has a large dog daycare facility in downtown Minneapolis, serving Golden Valley and Saint Louis Park areas as well. From day one, they have focused on making optimum use of their space to make sure that every dog’s needs are catered to based on their behavior and social needs. The facility has multiple play areas for differing sizes and breeds of dogs who engage in different playstyles. Metro Dogs recently built out a specific Puppy Pre-K area for the youngest puppies that are dropped off.


The unique Puppy Pre-K is structured with activities that will promote healthy social experiences, potty training, crate training, as well as basic good manners such as name recognition and recall, sit, down, and wait. All these experiences are done in a fun, positive manner so that the puppy learns the skills they need to be a wonderful social adult dog. A spokesperson for the puppy daycare facility in Minneapolis states, “Of course, we are not a replacement for puppy training programs, however, we are a great addition to continue the puppy’s training outside of puppy classes or the home environment.” The Puppy Pre-K is built into the daycare routine at Metro Dogs at no additional charge!

Going above and beyond, Metro Dogs has also created Puppy Pre-K PLUS, it is a service add-on for the puppy’s day in Puppy Pre-K. For an additional fee, they provide the puppy with enrichment and socialization beyond the daily routine. Each day of the week the puppy will have exposure to something new and novel. “We will take it at your puppy’s own pace and allow them to explore this new item as it works best for them,” Metro Dogs continues. Overall, Puppy Pre-K PLUS is a great way to build a foundation for a confident puppy that is comfortable in a variety of situations. This add-on service is great when looking to have a dog who can be confident and social at places like the vet clinic, breweries, and pet-friendly stores. At the end of each day in class, the puppy will go home with a report card of their progress in Puppy Pre-K and Pre-K PLUS.

The center has also extended its attention to detail to the actual facility itself as it is constructed to give the dog a pleasurable and relaxed atmosphere regardless of the time of year. The building is climate controlled making it adequately cool in the summer and giving it a toasty warmth in the winter. And provides the only downtown Minneapolis outdoor play yard which allows for fresh air and vitamin D breaks in an enclosed and sanitized, artificial grass yard. The cleaning of the grass yard and facility occurs around the clock with top-quality, dog-safe cleaning products that are safe for all canines.

Metro Dogs went on to share about its use of positive reinforcement to teach dogs basic etiquette by saying, “We use positive reinforcement methodology, the most humane and effective way to teach dogs how to know right versus wrong. We wholeheartedly believe that dogs are as empathetic and intuitive about relationships and social constructs as humans are and, therefore, the best way to lead a pack of pups is with positive, trusting, and fun relationships. Our techniques encourage puppy fun while also teaching them valuable life skills. For this type of playgroup management, we utilize treats in playrooms to reward good doggy behavior. By giving your dog an indication that they are behaving appropriately, they are more likely to repeat this behavior. This also builds a sacred bond between teacher and student. Our staff emphasizes the use of the word “Yes” to reinforce behaviors and even teach new tricks. Don’t be surprised if you send your furry bundle of joy to Metro Dogs and they come back home having learned a new trick or two."

A recent 5-star Google review of the canine daycare center says, “Metro Dogs is one of the best things that ever happened to my pup. He adores the staff (who are incredibly caring and knowledgeable about dog training and wellbeing). He's learned 4 new tricks in their Trick of the Month program - it's not just daycare, it can be training, too! I feel confident in Metro Dogs - their incredible care has made me feel really supported in being a new dog mom, knowing my little guy is getting well-supervised socialization with other pups!” The review also positively rates the center’s professionalism, quality, reliability, responsiveness, and value for money.
