Founded in 2003 as Urbandog Fitness + Spa, you can now find us with three playcare locations spanning the city under our new Park9 name: in the Distillery District, Pearson YYZ and Liberty Village. Our Pearson resort offers one of a kind boarding for both dogs and cats, just minutes from Pearson Airport's Terminal 1.




After a day of play, your dog greets you enthusiastically, tired and happy. The staff is amazing, they get to know your dog as well as you do – a personal connection they build with play, attention and love.

How it Works

There are times when you just can’t make the park and that big meeting at work. Park9 provides crate-free playcare that’s full of enriching play equipment and toys, lots of two-legged supervision and interaction and plenty of playmates. Your best friend’s day just got made! Oh, and did we mention you can check in on them anytime via our live-streaming webcams? Park9 also provides crate-free boarding at our Pearson YYZ location with 24-hour supervision for when you’re out of town.

At Park9, we begin our relationship by assessing your dog to best understand everything from their temperament and obedience level to which other dogs they will enjoy playing with!  Assessments are by appointment only at each location.  Please call ahead to book.   Once your four-legged friend has passed this mini interview, you are welcome to book him or her into our three playcare facilities spanning Toronto.

Visit us on an occasional basis or buy a pass or membership for regular attendance.

Get Started

Park9 Boarding

Our one of a kind resort features stimulating and safe indoor/outdoor play areas including an indoor, chlorine-free pool for pup to swim in year-round! You can choose whether your dog would prefer an individual suite or to bunk with friends (and a human companion) in a slumber room.

Mason has been a member of the Park9 Urbandog community for 11 years now. We got him from the Humane Society and although a good dog, he was overzealous about playing with other dogs. Now Mason is one of the dogs they bring in when assessing new dogs for the daycare!!
