Business community welcomes doggie daycare

  • Print

There’s a new place for your furry friend in St. Vital. Stay N Play Dog Services offers dog walking, pet sitting, dog daycare, walk-in nail trims, and more.


The new business is run by Jennifer Lajambe. She started it with the help of SEED Winnipeg, a non-profit organization that helps people start their own businesses and assist low-income individuals, groups, organizations and economically distressed neighborhoods to improve their social and economic vitality


"We go to the clients’ homes pick up the dogs, take them out of a walk in their community and return them home. We provide baggies, water, and treats for the dogs," Lajambe said.   


The dog daycare is a 1,200-sq. ft. facility with a fully fenced in back yard. Many activities are offered to help dogs burn off extra energy.


 The following is a regular dog day at the daycare:

• 7- 9 am is drop off and free play

• 9-10 is a pool party where the dogs can splash around in a child sized pool

• 10:30-11:30 is catch time with a ball

• 12:30-1:30 is lunch time

• 12:30-1:30 is quiet time so bellies have time to digest

• 1:30-2:30 is runs with wolves where the dogs literally run around with the staff

• 2:30-3:30 is play time

• 3:30- 7 is free play and pick up


The cost of grooming ranges between $30 and $80. Groomings include bath and hand dry, brushing, nails, and hair cuts or trims if required.


Puppy checks are another service Stay N Play offers for people who have puppies, but don’t want to put them into daycare. Someone from Stay N Play will go to a home, let the puppy out, feed them if needed and clean up any messy surprises.  


Stay N Play also offers a pet taxi service for people who don’t have vehicles or can’t get time off work to take their pet to the groomers or vet appointments  


All staff are certified pet sitters and most are certified to perform pet first. The doggie day care is located at 585 St. Anne’s Rd.
