When visiting your dog MUST be on a leash, we will not be responsible for a dog running away or any injuries that may occur if your pup is running free. We have a dog that is occasionally tied in the back yard that is not always fond of other dogs getting in her space. Please be careful.
Also, while your dog is more than welcome to come visit the store please watch them and be aware that if he/she pees on product you can consider it sold to you.
Weopened our doors in 2006, just a small family with a dream to help people when they travel or even just when they are working for the day to keep their dogs in a safe, secure environment where they have interaction with other dogs and can socialize with people during the day, and as a bonus the owner lives on site.
We offer 8 individual indoor/outdoor runs, doors are open at 8 am and remain open (weather permitting) until 7 pm. Dogs are in their own individual runs and can socialize with the dog next to them but are safe from any aggressive behaviour should any occur.
Need grooming? We have a certified groomer on staff!
We also support a local animal assistance group by making and donating colorful seasonal bandanas for sale. 100% of proceeds from the sale of these items go to helping local animals with vet bills whether it be an emergency visit or a scheduled one and the owner just can't afford the care needed. This organization helps with 1/2 the cost of the visit up to a maximum of $200. Come check out the selection of bandanas we have to offer. A summer selection of patterns is available now.
I haven't done a pet care article in a few years, but this has become a hot topic this year so I thought I would address it:
TICKS AND YOUR PET
The ticks this year seem to be extremely active compared to the past few years. Not a day goes by that I don't hear about someone finding one or more on their dog or cat. What can you do? After your pet (and you) have been in any grass do a thorough inspection (on you it will be on your clothing, around your ankles, inside your pantlegs, socks, shoes usually) on your pet check between the toes, along the legs, the belly/chest and then the body, look in the ears, on the eyes, inside the mouth - inspect the roof of the mouth, cheeks, gums, lips, tongue. What do you do if you find one? If you find one (or more) don't panic. Grab a cotton ball or cotton pad and soak it in dish soap, hold it over the tick for a couple minutes and gently try to remove the tick pushing from the head down towards the body (of the tick) trying to make sure to get the stinger out. If it doesn't work after a couple minutes try again. DON'T just try to pick it off, you risk leaving the stinger in which can cause a nasty infection and rash. If you can remove the tick intact maybe put it into a jar and label where you found it and let the health unit know so they can monitor the activity of the ticks.
Of course, prevention is the best option - a good quality flea/tick treatment will help prevent any ticks from having a chance to survive a bite and will also help with mosquitoes and black flies (Advantix, Revolution, etc.)
Get out and enjoy our short but buggy summer season but be careful!

WE ALSO OFFER A MONTHLY PET BOX! Does your dog or cat get bored with their toys? Is he/she hard on toys and you have trouble finding quality toys at a good price that will keep him/her entertained and take a while to destroy? Do you like to spoil your fur baby with special treats, toys and fun accessories? Then look no further! For $40 (+ tax) for a dog box and $25 (+ tax) for a cat box your pet can have 2 toys geared to their individual needs, 2 packages of treats (taking their food likes/dislikes and allergies into consideration), a strong chew to keep them busy chewing for a little while (usually a cheese based treat or a natural animal chew) plus a fun accessory - a new seasonal bandana or a useful item (bug spray, breath freshener, brush, etc.). Plans available for multi pet families, please ask.
We are a small facility, only 8 indoor/outdoor runs. Doors are open at 8 am and (weather permitting) stay open until closing at 7 pm so the dogs can run in and out as much as they like chasing squirrels, watching the birds, barking at one another - all in the safety of their own covered run. Runs are 4'x5' inside with a rubberized floor for their comfort, 4'x8' outside (single pens) and 4'x8' inside and 8'x8' outside (double pens) with easy to sterilize concrete for them to do their business and just enjoy the sun. Cool in the summer and warm in the winter. We provide blankets (washed between guests), bowls (washed and sterilized between guests) all you need to provide is your dog and their food (to save possible food allergies).
Prices for boarding are as follows:
(all taxes extra)
1 dog $20/night
2 dogs $30/night in same run
Additional dogs (in same run as others) $10
(ie: 3 dogs in a double run is $40/night)
If you wish to have your dog walked during his/her visit we do have a walking service that we call on and the price for that is $10 for a half hour walk (weather permitting). Please ask for this service when booking.
