Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, All Dog Adventures has changed the format of its Manners Classes from Flextime Manners to set 6 week classes. With the new format,
students will register to attend class once a week for 6 weeks at the same day and time. Along with attending classes, you will have access to All Dog Adventures' At Home Trainer
Videos to support your training in between class time. Working spots for each class will be limited to 6 students to maximize individual attention from an All Dog Adventures' Instructor.
Once you and your dog have graduated from the Manners Program, you have the foundational skills in place for pursuing All Dog Adventures' Advanced classes.
From Therapy Dog preparation to competitive canine sports, we’ve got you covered. Read more here.
Our doggie daycare engages, teaches and stimulates your pet. In our daycare program at All Dog Adventures, dogs rotate between playing with staff,
mingling with dogs in small groups of five or fewer, and rest time. We customize programs to meet your dog’s personalities, size, and age.
In 1996, All Dog Playskool opened in Richmond, VA in Huguenot Village in Richmond’s Southside as the first doggie daycare. Some of our first seminars were conducted by Gary Wilkes, Sue Sternberg, and Peter Wilkes from England to name a few.
In 1998, All Dog Playskool opened its second location on Thalbro Street in the Scott’s Addition / West End of Richmond. With the second location, All Dog Playskool added more group training classes with the first of many being the establishment of an unequivocal agility program. In addition, All Dog Playskool added boarding and self-serve dog wash.
With the expansion of All Dog Playskool’s training programs, the business relocated in 2009 to 4111 W. Clay Street, also in Scott’s Addition / West End, and expanded its name to All Dog Adventures to include the new philosophy of taking relationships to a higher level.
All Dog Adventures is the home of multiple Master Agility Champions (MACH’s), Agility Dog Champions (ADCH’s), and Trick Dog Champions (TDCH’s) as well as multiple titled dogs in Obedience and Rally Obedience in various venues, i.e. AKC, USDAA / WCRL, UKC, C-WAGS, etc. In addition, many of All Dog Adventures’ dogs have become Canine Good Citizens, Therapy Dogs, and actors in local commercials.
All Dog Adventures continues to grow by offering continued education seminars conducted by dog trainers considered to be at the top of their profession from all over the world and expanding class offerings to accommodate the evolution of dog sports and activities.
We use some of the most effective techniques to train your best friend.
Our Staff and trainers are kind, engaging, and informed.

I think my Winston loves ADA more than he loves his home! A fabulous place where dogs are happy, healthy and loved.Connie Rose
I have watched All Dog Adventures grow every year with its leadership team and the best staff you can possibly assemble. I will continue to support this organization because our dog Rex wouldn't have it any other way. Thx TEAMMark Rosenbloom
I don’t know what I would have done without ADA! They helped me not only learn the basics about training and how to implement them in various environments, but also taught me the nuances of “dog talk”. With their tips, I was able to go from a frazzled puppy mom who let her pup walk over her to an in-control and confident dog mom. ADA has had my glowing reviews since the first day – and when I bring another doggy home, they will be the first place I go. Thank you to all the teachers and staff for their kindness, patience, and wisdom.Martha Wright
The instructors at All Dog were very attentive and patient with class participants. The lessons were always personalized to fit the needs of the individual dogs in the group. During each class there was a lot of ‘one on one’ time and I could ask any question about situations I was having a problem with. The class not only taught my dog manners, but built her confidence and allowed her to make good choices. She became a thinking dog instead of a robot! Dew and I completed all 3 levels of Manners Class and now compete in Agility. And yes, we still take class at All Dog Adventures.Elizabeth Atkins
I first brought my 2 year old lab to All Dog Adventures for an outlet for her energy. Not only did we learn agility, I also learned to be a better dog owner in general. The breadth and depth of the dog knowledge is remarkable. If one trainer can’t help, another will have the answer. I have such confidence in the trainers that I turned my 10 year old daughter and her Australian Cattle Dog/Sheltie puppy over to them. They are now tearing up the agility course and loving every minute. So happy and grateful to have such knowledgeable dog people close by.Randi Martin
All Dog Adventures is an integral part of both my life and my dog Jersey's. Together, we are constantly learning. I am becoming a better pet owner and Jersey a great companion. We take advantage of daycare and classes. The staff and trainers share a wealth of knowledge and are genuinely interested in every dog and owner. We look forward to many more years of fun and learning! Thank you, ADA!Mary Petres & Jersey
I started my training with my Great Dane Guinness 3 weeks before giving birth to my second child. We needed obedience training as we start training Guinness as my service animal. All Dog Adventure's flexible class schedule provided our family the ideal way to accomplish our obedience training very quickly. We loved that we could accomplish all of our manners classes and test for the CGC all in one place. We could then go on to therapy dog training or agility or focus on our individual task training for Guinness to continue his incredible life saving work as my service dog. We are grateful to Jo, Kathy, Melanie, and Dawn for all they do!Bunny Young
Our little Fenway is featured on the cover of the All Dog Adventures brochure! I’m so thankful for them and the excellent classes and daycare offered. Diane, Fenway, and I have all learned so much from the classes. Plus, a tired puppy is a good puppy and the physical and mental energy expended in these activities is definitely high!Julie Flenner
My 11 month old Golden Retriever, Tally, loves going to daycare and I love that she not only gets plenty of play time with her doggy friends, but she also spends time with the staff. They play fetch, take her for a walks, and practice commands that she has learned in the manners classes there. Tally has learned so much more than just basic commands in these classes. There are three different levels of the manners program which are offered day and night and you can attend up to two classes weekly. This allowed me to choose instructors who are all very qualified want you and your dog to be successful. Kathy Smith, has been wonderful in helping me with Tally who has some anxiety and behavior issues. The staff at All Dog Adventures are always friendly and courteous. She gets so excited to see everyone when we arrive for daycare. I am really happy that I found All Dog Adventures. I know my dog will be safe and have fun there whether she’s attending a class or in daycare.Lisa Brown and Tally

Our doggie daycare engages, teaches and socializes your pet. In our daycare program at All Dog Adventures, dogs rotate between playing with staff, socialization in small groups of five or fewer, and rest time. We customize programs to meet your dog’s personalities, size, and age.
By offering a structured environment where dogs play with fewer than five other dogs that are selected based on play styles and temperament, dogs get the socialization and exercise owners want, without the risk of your dog getting lumped into a group where he or she is injured and bullied. Each group is overseen by an attendant, and groups are not left unattended. Our goal is for your pet to go home tired but happy from play and mental stimulation.
We also emphasize socializing your dog with one-on-one human contact. For example, your dog will have the opportunity to play with interactive toys with the staff, learn tricks, practice skills, try out dog sports equipment, and more.
It is important to us that your dog not lose the skills they learned in training, or pick up and practice the behaviors owners worked so hard to cure them of. Our Doggie Daycare includes the reinforcement of positive habits, and consistency with our Manners Program. We encourage dogs with one-on-one training not to jump up on people or bark excessively while at daycare.
Prior to Boarding at All Dog Adventures, it is a pre-requisite for your dog to attend a day of Daycare. This helps your dog acclimate to being in our care and our routine. As well, it helps our staff assess your dog’s play style and needs. What better opportunity to use your free day of Daycare that is included with your Manners package?!
All Dog Adventures is now offering Dog Boarding at 39.00$ for an Overnight stay for all clients.
All of your bestfriends will recieve the same excellent treatment that our daycare members already recieve.

The first step to getting started in Manners is filling out our registration form. On the form, you will be asked to select an Orientation date and time. Orientation is the first class you attend, and you should not bring your dog with you. Any friends or family members that will be training your dog should also attend Orientation. Manners has ongoing enrollment, so you can get started whenever it is convenient for you. Call our office with any additional questions about Manners at (804)355-7737.
We and our dogs need to learn how to walk before running. Our advanced classes have different prerequisites depending on the class (specifics can be found under “Advanced Classes”), because they require a foundation of skills to build upon. Prerequisites give you and your dog the experience you’ll need to succeed in our advanced classes.
You have nothing to lose! You can fill the gaps in your foundation while you and your dog move through the program at your own speed. If you start Level 1 with strong foundational skills, you will graduate quickly and move on to more challenging classes. Also, our Manners classes foundation will serve you well should you decide to take Advanced Classes with us.
Yes. We tailor your dog’s day of daycare to their personality and energy level. We must know your dog is coming ahead of time in order to properly schedule their day. Please call (804)355-7737 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
Parking is available in the front of the building, and we have additional parking which can be seen on here on our
The day of daycare gives your dog and the All Dog staff an occasion to get to know one another, and gives your dog the opportunity to learn that they love it here prior to an extended stay. During your dog’s day of daycare, we will evaluate your dog and learn who his doggy pals will be, which one-on-one time activities he likes, and what makes him at ease.
