Dog Boarding   

Spacious individual indoor kennels, indoor/outdoor runs (where your dog can go in and out as he pleases)  & outside runs with individual dog houses.
Extra large run available for giant breeds.
All outside runs are covered to prevent escape by climbing and also provides protection from the elements.
Covered security fence around the kennel.
Concrete runs to provide cleanliness and to prevent escape from digging under and out.
Climate control for your dogs comfort.
Daily walks available upon request. We have 80 acres of  fields and trails so your dog won’t be walked on a busy highway.
Cookie breaks daily.

Cat Boarding

Cats are kept separate from  the dogs and have large individual kennels.
Indoor exercise runs to burn off energy.

Dogs & Cats

Choice of your pets favourite foods.
Finicky pet? We will even cook for him/her.
Daily brushing is available upon request.
A small fee may apply depending on type and condition of coat.

Grooming Shop

Option of having your pet bathed and/or groomed to be ready upon your return.
Grooming also available by appointment.
35 years experience grooming American Cocker Spaniels, 25 plus years experience at all breed grooming.
Our grooming salon is small and thus your pet is not subjected to a “production line” type of grooming.
We specialize in “puppy’s first trim” by making his/her first groom as stress-free and as safe as possible.
We use top quality shampoos (the same ones we use on our own “show dogs”) no harsh detergents! We have medicated, flea, herbal, harsh coat (for terriers) and regular shampoos as well as hot oil treatment and our water is conditioned with a “water softener”.
