Experience: Our staff is educated in canine behavior and skilled in caring for and handling dogs. They regularly attend continuing education and training sessions to increase their knowledge and skill.


SupervisionWe provide full-time, in-person supervision of all canine interactions. Dogs are never monitored remotely using webcams at Coventry.


Cutting Edge Methods: We use the most current, humane, and effective techniques to train you and your dog all the way to success! Our daycamp staff is happy to reinforce good manners, like sitting politely, waiting your turn, walking nicely, and not door dashing.


Personal Service: Outstanding customer service is our hallmark. Caring for dogs shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all arrangement. We recognize that everyone is different, so here at Coventry we will work to meet your needs. We accommodate older dogs by providing a room where extra love, attention, and potty breaks replace the rowdiness of youth.


State-of-the-Art Facility: We offer safe, sanitary play spaces with padded floors, fenced relief areas, and top-of-the-line dog toys/equipment.


Safety and Health: The safety and health of our clients, human and canine alike, are paramount. All dogs must pass an evaluation and have required vaccinations. We separate playgroups based on temperament, play style, age, and activity. We use pet- and environment-friendly cleaning products and state-of-the-art floor cleaning equipment to ensure that Coventry is a clean and healthy place.


Fun: We make it fun for everyone! From classes to pick-ups, you and your dog will leave smiling.


"Our dogs have gone to Coventry since puppyhood 10 years ago. They have been through training and have played and stayed! Coventry has such a great caring staff! Even as our dogs have aged, slowed down, and struggled with cancer they have tried to make their experience there as fun and fulfilling as possible. I love that they have many play groups. Our dogs also do great when staying there. Well cared for and tired out!!"
