3-Day Evaluation – $60

  • Dogs that have trained or are training with Canine Perspective do not need to undergo an evaluation and can utilize our Daycare & Boarding services.
  • All dogs that have not been trained by Canine Perspective need to have a 3-day evaluation in order to use our Daycare & Boarding services.
    • Day 1 – Your dog does no socializing this day. The first day is used to acclimate your dog to our facility as new environments are stressful to dogs. Trying to socialize a dog under stress is more likely to lead to dog fights or aggression. This also allows my handlers to get a feel for your dog.
    • Day 2 – Pending your dog’s comfort level, we will begin the socialization process on a small scale with dogs of different energy types walking around and vice versa to see if your dog has any tension to certain energies.
    • Day 3 – Pending your dog is becoming more comfortable at our facility and with other dogs, we will then begin to socialize them in a larger group. If your dog is still showing signs of timidness, tension, or defensive responses, we will inform you. These behaviors do not mean your dog cannot attend our facility, but they will most likely require more work to get them comfortable. Our 30-minute training sessions can be used to address issues like this.

What you can expect from Canine Perspective’s Structured Boarding & Daycare in Logan Square.

Structure for the Mind

Canine Perspective has brought its expertise in dog behavior to the forefront of dog daycare & boarding that will change the industry in the Chicago-land area. We are a no-frills, straightforward, what you see is what you get, service that is directed at what the dog needs, and not what the human wants.

Your dogs’ stay will be much like that of a child going to school. There will be times where your dog will be learning, as training is built-in to how handlers engage with dogs from the moment they walk into the moment they walk out. This training is to help promote good behavior when at our facility so that your dog can enjoy all of the activities and not be removed due to poor behavior.

This is done through appropriate handler training skills where the person is trained to a level where the dogs understand to behave themselves because of respect. We are not training your dog to the extent that it will carry the behaviors home with them, which requires more work and is the product of a Board & Train program. Our B&T programs come with follow up private lessons to ensure the training passes on to the owner.

Your dog will engage in small, supervised playgroups with appropriate breaks in-between to allow them to dial down and not get continuously over-stimulated. This helps prevent a constant need for interaction when going home due to non-stop engagement. Dogs will also be taught to remain calm when needed during play and not just through separation or removing them from the environment. This helps teach your dog to have an “off” switch so that it can learn to relax even when in environments with lots of activity going on. This greatly benefits dogs that struggle with impulse control.

Exercise for the Body

Physical exercise is great for your dog’s physical health. Structured physical exercise is even better for your dog’s mind. Canine Perspective is proud to be the FIRST and ONLY facility to be able to offer Pack Walks, like Cesar Milan, for its daycare, boarding, and Board & Train clients. A Pack Walk will consist of anywhere between 3 to 8 dogs walking in unison with each other through different environments. Length of time will vary between 1 to 2 hours depending on the stamina of the dogs and the weather that particular day.

Examples of other exercises:

  • Structured Fetch
  • Agility
  • Scentwork
  • Food Puzzles

Treadmill is soon to come as Canine Perspective is in the process of acquiring treadmills for its dogs.

Treadmill training will be built into the routine of daycare and boarding clients to provide both physical exercise and mental focus. Great for dogs that are insecure, nervous, or fearful as it helps build confidence as the dog overcomes its fears. Each dog is taught appropriate to its personality type. We are in no hurry to get your dog up and running on the treadmill.
