Please help with business name

The name I had chosen to use may not be available to incorporate and since I had chosen it so long ago I can't seem to change my thought.
We will see in the morning if I can still use my original choice but if I can't I will need to choose another so I was looking for a little help for ideas. The business is dog training and doggy daycare.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

Can you remind us what the name was that you had picked out? Helps to know what sort of tone you were going for...

At this point I am looking for anything even words or phrases that I can possibly match together to make a name.

Did you try "Doggie" or "Doggy" instead of Dogs?

I like the "Teachers pet school and daycare" but would change "daycare" to "playcare".

If the forms of the words are too close unfortunately they won't accept them. A catchy phrase might work best I don't know.

I was thinking of possibly trying Capital Dogs learning Centre but it may be too general.

I named my husbands computer business. Our last name is O'Toole, so I came up with "O'Tuters Computers" (no longer in business btw, nothing to do with the name though ). Everyone thought it was pretty catchy. Maybe you could use your name, or a play on words?

What about "Paws Play and Learn"? A little basic yes, but it sticks.

My business name is Capital Chef - I think Capital is a good solid word, it not only conveys the best, but also the city.. and also serious...

I like Capital Dog Academy

I like the suggestions offered up by Puppyluv and TobsterMom. I would want the name to indicate both the school and daycare. I really like the use of the word playcare, but I'm not too fusy about using the word academy, sounds too intimidating/formal to the common dog owner.

Yay, I got the name I wanted. It took some work but I managed to get it. The sign on the door will say The Dogs Den Learning Centre Ltd
