Dogs make us better

Dogs are our lives and our life's passion. They teach us invaluable lessons, bring us joy and in turn make us better humans. 

Every dog is dynamic, with their own combination of strengths and weaknesses. We adore their quirky personalities,  humorous nature, their ability to always be present in the moment and to love unconditionally.

 Our mission is to ensure that the dogs in our care thrive. That means taking the time to really learn what the each individual dog needs to flourish. To not just be physically tired but biologically and emotionally fulfilled.

We are crazy passionate about dogs

We have a highly skilled team of full time dogs care givers who constantly monitor the physical, mental and emotional well being of the dogs in our care. We become your dogs extended family and prefer to be called Aunties. Your dogs Auntie gets to know and love each dog like their own.

Priority on health & Safety

Health and safety is our #1 priority and is taken into consideration when we design our programs and with every interaction and activity.  Here are some example of how we go above & beyond to be the safest dog care facility:

All paid staff, no volunteers. Minimum of two staff members during all group actives 

All dogs are fully temperament assessed by our on staff dog trainer with over 6 years experience with group socialization

Dogs taken off property on walks are teether to their auntie with a heavy duty mountain climbing belt with special leashes that attach to a collar back-up

We use only specialized dog friendly veterinary grade disinfect and surfaces are cleaned minimum of once a day.

safe, structured & supervised

After years of experience working with dogs in all shapes & sizes, we are confident that we know exactly what dogs need in order to have safe & healthy interactions.  Our playgroups are supervised by our highly skilled "aunties" trained in animal behavior and experts in canine body language so your dog can let loose and have fun in a safe, controlled environment. 

Overtired, over-aroused, overwhelmed, overcrowded dogs are more likely to make bad decisions and get themselves into trouble. That is why we constantly monitor the dog's body language and arousal/excitement levels to ensure we are always setting our dogs up for success. This means separating the playgroup based on size, energy level, social skills, and confidence.  Occasionally young puppies and adult dogs with less social skills, or those overly enthusiastic may need more guidance given by their daycare aunties and or breaks throughout their day.

Daycare

We LOVE dogs, and we know that no two are exactly alike.  Each dog is an individual and has unique needs that is why we love our small size dog daycare. We get to know all the dog's quirks and personalities just like they are our own. Armed with this knowledge, we are able to cater their visit to ensure they have the best possible experience.
