Hello Delightful People 🙂

3-Please limit the use of cash and pay by interac or through etransfer to


Thank you all for your patience and support as we navigate our way through this extraordinary situation. At this time week day dog daycare, boarding services will remain open during our regular hours.

For weekends we now require reservations. This is all for as long as it is safe to do so and we will update any closure information as soon as we know. We are implementing some protocols to keep our staff and you safe.

One person in our Lobby at a time when dropping dogs off or picking them up. You will remove your dogs collar and leash to keep with you and we will put our leash on your dog. Please leave once your dog is securely in behind the gate.

No more lunches or snacks for daycare dogs. We do have quality food and treats that we are happy to feed them if you like.

All Dog Training classes, Private Training and Behaviour Consults will be postponed until further notice. We will be working with Behaviour Clients on-line and through video.

Please maintain physical distancing.

If you need anything for your four-legged loved ones don’t hesitate to ask!

We will get through this together!
