Canine recreation center

People and dogs

Welcome to

Canine Connection!

Looking for a safe space to bring your dog and meet other dog people? Look no further! Canine Connection is an indoor canine recreation center designed for dogs and their people. We provide a safe space to further enrich the lives of our dogs, enhance the connection between your dog and you, and to connect dog guardians in a safe and supportive environment where we play, learn, and connect. If this sounds great, you also get the added benefit of a place to recreate indoors when nature doesn't cooperate! Plus, you'll have access to a variety of services our partners offer. 

We're currently open for private rentals, play groups, and meetups! Stay tuned for expanded operating hours in May! 

Man's Best Friends


We offer monthly and annual membership options. If you’re not sure if membership and group play are right for your dog, book a consultation with our partner Doggonit Training. We also offer visit packages designed for you to try before you buy, and day passes so you and your pup can frolic with the rest of the pack without the commitment of membership. Safety is our top priority. Our center is staffed to ensure all dogs and guardians are playing safe. Please see the requirements page for more information.
