    A Bit About Our Dog Kennel

    The kennel facility is located right beside our home. This helps us be with the dogs all day long. We start early and our days end late so your dog has a schedule more like when he is at home with you. All dogs receive a minimum of 5 outings of playtime – and plenty of cuddles so they feel more at home. When you drop your dog to us, we’ll discuss your dog’s needs and preferences. This helps each dog maintain a schedule that will make both you and them happy and comfortable. We have a 32-acre playground to walk and explore so your dog will have new and varied experiences here with us.

You Love Your Pets. So Do We.

While we’ll never be as good as home, we strive to provide your dog with the level of comfort you do. Our sole focus is ensuring your dog is safe, healthy and happy during their stay. It’s true – we’re professionals – but we also care deeply about your pet’s experience with us.

Here’s how we ensure your dog enjoys their time with us.


Your home is peaceful.  Our kennel should be no different. Bark-free is our goal.


Cleanliness matters. Both our kennel and your dog stay clean for their entire stay.


Our dog runs have plenty of room for your dog’s favourite bed and a few toys.


In a new environment, routine matters. Country Canine dogs know whats happening and when.


Your dog will be outside a minimum of 5 times per day with other dogs that are a good fit for their personality.


We’re certified professionals who really care about your dogs.

  • We’ve been clients at 5 kennels, having moved a few times in the last 10 years. Country Canine is hands down an exceptional experience. First thing we noticed when dropping off Stirling, our German Shepherd, was how quiet a dozen dogs could be. We’d never been able to converse with a kennel owner in the[…] Read More

I know when I board the dogs there that Suzanne and Laurent will look after them, love them and give them everything they need. Country Canine is spotless, they are so[…] Read More

  • Look no further if  what you want is quality care by knowledgeable, caring individuals in a pristine country setting. It  is our experience that dog owners are carefully vetted before their pets are accepted for “camp”. As a result, the dogs play well together, whether on long walks, short walks or during free play time. Care[…] Read More

  • I have been taking my 5-year-old Goldendoodle to Country Canine since she was a puppy. Tilly’s stays have ranged from a few days to a month at a time. Suzanne and Laurent take wonderful care of Tilly, and she is excited to go. Tilly is always returned to me in good health and happy. Tilly[…] Read More

  • My name is Dudley and I have been going for vacations at Country Canine for about five and a half years, fairly soon after the doggy hotel opened. I call it a hotel because it is a fun place to go and there are usually lots of dogs in their own rooms, before we meet up[…] Read More
