New Clients

Becoming a Fido’s dog is simple and easy! To ensure every guest is safe, happy and well cared for, we need to get to know you and your playful friend. 

1.       Download our New Client form to your computer and fill it out prior to coming in with your dog.

2.       Contact your vet office for your dog’s vaccination records. Your pup can start daycare as young as 8 weeks, so we require all our guests to have Rabies, DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza and Parvo) once they are old enough to receive each vaccine.  We do not require the Bordetella vaccine.

All guests must be spayed or neutered by the age of 7 months. You can also have your vet send vaccinations to fidosplayground@gmail.com

3. Email, call or message us on Facebook to set up an appointment for your dog to come in for their trial day! Appointments are done between 7:30am-9am Monday to Thursday. We require your dog to stay a minimum of 2 hours on their asssessment trial day.


About Us

Fido’s was born out of a love for animals and a need in the community for an excellent animal care provider. From one woman’s desire to see a positive environment for dogs, Fido’s has grown into one of the top choice’s for training and daycare in Stratford.

Fido’s playground opened May 7, 2007 and has been in its current home on Monteith since 2009. An open concept 2500 sq ft playroom provides freedom and fun for your dog to roam; while allowing you to see into the space where your puppy is during the day. The fully enclosed 1000 sq ft outdoor space also allows ample space for your family member to run around.

Fido’s playground is owned and operated by Cheryl Mayberry a certified canine training behaviorist and Canadian pet dog trainer. She continues to serve her customers with the best in canine behavior training and psychology by attending seminars, classes and conferences from the likes of Dr. Ian Dunbar, Patricia McConnell Ph.D and many more outstanding positive dog trainers.

Fido’s playground is a place for dogs to come and make friends while learning proper socialization in a safe and secure environment. Dogs of all shapes and sizes play together like they’ve been living together in the same house for years. And if you need a little extra help with your dog, whether it’s basic training or behavioral issues, Fido’s provides a wide variety of options to suit.

Very grateful for Cheryl and her caring staff for all the services she provides for my dog. The pickup/drop off service is so helpful. My beagle is well cared, and comes home tired & happy. Excellent socialization with other dogs of all sizes. His favourite days are spent at Fido’s Playground.
