Day Care + Training - All in One
Leash Free Living has a small, intimate, training based Day Care in Annapolis. Dogs play in a supervised group from 7:00 am – 7:00 pm. Training and manners are reinforced throughout the day while we encourage appropriate levels of play, practice fitness exercises, and engage them in group training activities.
Individual training sessions can be added on for your dog while they are at day care, if you would like to work on specific homework, learning new skills, or problem areas. Sessions can even be booked as a Field Trip if you’d like your dog to have an off-site adventure.
Reservations are required. You can request a reservation using the link above. If you need some help figuring out the reservation software, we have a step by step list of instructions HERE.
When space allows, we will allow Drop In for Day Training (no prior reservation). Package credits can not be used for Drop In days, and if we have reached capacity that day, you may be turned away.
Let your dog spend the day with us playing and learning an indoor group environment with other like minded dogs.
Drop Off : Any time after 7:00 am. We recommend that dog’s arrive before 10:00 am to ensure they have the opportunity to participate in all of the day’s activities.
Pick Up: Any time before 7:00 pm. We try to complete all of our training activities by 1:00 pm each day. Let us know if you plan to pick up before then so we can make sure your dogs training exercises are completed in time.
