About us

Our History

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.

Doggie Daycare

Daycare Registration Form

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. We are focused and dedicated to providing the outstanding service that we are known for. There is no nickle and diming just simple flat pricing. To learn more, please contact us at All Dog Adventures via phone (804) 355-7737 or e-mail Or feel free to fill out our boarding application here! Boarding Application

Frequently Asked Questions

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 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.
