Shuttle Day Care

McCann's Canine Care provides pick-up and drop-off shuttle day care for Palo Alto and surrounding cities on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. See below for details. At McCann's Canine Care, our day care provides dog(s) the chance to play and exercise off-leash on acres of safely enclosed, beautiful pasture land next to the Pacific Ocean.

This is a custom heading element.

Shuttle Day Care includes pick-up from and drop-off to your home or work in the Palo Alto and surrounding cities, two hours of supervised play in our two acre pasture overlooking the Pacific Ocean - rain or shine - and a tired, happy dog awaiting you at the end of your day! Note: There is no shuttle service on major holidays.

- Shuttle Service Play Care is $45 per dog per outing.
- Additional dogs per family are $40 per dog per outing.

Package Options Include:

  • Package of five shuttle play care outings: $220 (Savings of $5.00)
  • Package of ten shuttle play care outings: $420 (Savings of $40.00)
  • Package of 16 shuttle play care outings $670.00 (Savings of $50.00)
  • Packages expire at the end of two months.

We ask that you determine your shuttle day care needs, purchase packages and schedule with Audrey to ensure your dog gets the outside time and play care he or she needs!

Day Care Requirements

We are committed to making sure your dog has the most positive experience possible while in our care. Therefore, we have strict rules in place to make sure everyone remains safe, healthy and happy.

Our Process:

  1. Schedule a meet and greet with Audrey.
  2. Audrey will come out to your home and meet you and your dog(s) and figure out your dog(s)’ day care needs!


  • Dogs must NOT HAVE AGGRESSION ISSUES OF ANY KIND.  No exceptions.

Note:  If your dog consistently has issues with other dogs at the dog park or if your dog consistently has issues with other dogs visiting your home, this is not the right environment for your dog.  If your dog has ongoing medical issues that cause the dog a lot of pain, this may cause your dog to be more sensitive to other dogs and people.

  • Dogs must be healthy with current vaccinations.  Copy of said vaccinations must be provided by commencement of services.
  • Dogs who have highly anxious or nervous personalities are not permitted.
  • Dogs who are “escape artists” are not permitted.
  • No toy or small breeds.  Dogs should be at least 25-30 lbs. plus.
  • Dogs must be at least 6 months of age and either neutered or spayed.  No exceptions.
  • We recommend dogs be on a flea and tick repellent program.  If your dog is not currently on one, please discuss this with your veterinarian.
  • During certain times of the year when foxtails and burrs are everywhere, we recommend a “summer cut” if your dog has long or curly hair.  This cut keeps fur around the paws, face, ears and underbelly shorter, so there’s less chance of foxtails and burrs embedding into the skin.

Thank you for considering McCann’s Canine Care for your dog’s day care needs!
