Dog Boarding, Daycare, Training & Classes in the Comox Valley

Welcome to Country Canine Care!

Comox Valley’s newest dog care facility is located on 8.5 acres in beautiful Union Bay on Green Acres Hobby Farm, a short 10-15 minute drive from Walmart. We offer a range of dog care options for you and your family. Our brand new 2000 sq. foot radiant heated building is perfect for daycare and training classes or a fun combination of both. We offer a large fenced, dog proof 1.5 acre field for fun, supervised off leash play. Please join us in welcoming back Government Registered Certified Master Trainer Debbie Simpson (White) to the Valley. Many of you will remember Debbie from the late 90’s when she owned and operated Canine Concerns Training Centre. Country Canine Care is honoured to match our new business with Debbie’s 40+ years of skill, experience and wisdom. Please see our bio and service pages for details on both Debbie and our family as we look forward to providing care for your beloved pups.

Our Philosophy

Positive! Truly, one word sums up the philosophy of Country Canine Care. Debbie and Lisadawn both believe in positive praise and correction training based on motivation. Debbie is one of the few local trainers who use NON FOOD training methods.

Care Plans: We believe one size does not fit all! Country Canine Care offers a unique care plan for each dog. Take a few minutes and let us know what your dog’s ‘perfect day’ or ‘perfect overnight stay’ would look like.

Quality vs Quantity: Our class maximum is 6 dogs and owners/families. Our daycare is based on small, safe, supervised groups of 10 or less. At present, we can board a maximum of 10 dogs overnight (call for details).

Communication: We strongly believe that open communication between Country Canine Care and dog owners results in a healthy, positive working relationship. We encourage and welcome input, comments, suggestions and updates on your dog’s health and behavior. In turn, we will provide you with the same information regarding your dog(s) on a regular basis.

2018 New Business of the Year

We are so excited to announce that Country Canine Care won 2018 New Business of the Year at the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce’s annual business awards! Thank you to all of our wonderful clients who have made our first year of business a dream come true.

My husband and I are so happy to hear Deb is back in the Valley and offering her dog training services again! In the past we took 2 of our dogs to her, loved her style of training and had great success with our dogs and their obedience. We had our dogs go from puppy classes, to basic obedience, then to agility and on to scent tracking with Deb. She is a very knowledgeable and professional dog trainer with years of experience. We would not hesitate to recommend her. We look forward to bringing our future puppies/dogs to her.

“We sent our dog Cooper to stay at Country Canine Care for a week. He was so excited when we dropped him off. There was not an ounce of anxiety in our usually anxious dog. He spent the week being loved and exercised. We picked him up happy and tired from all his exercise. We would recommend Lisadawn and Rich in a heartbeat. Their love of dogs and compassion to our anxious dog was obvious to both us and to him.”

“I met Debbie just under a year ago … she pegged the age of our pup Taz at 9 weeks old … I was very impressed with her in the few minutes we chatted … we called Debbie for an assessment and have been working with her since. Her love for dogs and her work with them is without question. Taz and I attended her puppy class this summer; it was just the right size. Her professionalism and no nonsense attitude made the classes both educational and fun. We will continue to work with Debbie as our trainer and would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to train their dog properly.”

“Country Canine Care is the BEST!!! My dog Mischief loves it there and gets the best care ever…. she gets picked up and dropped off from the house which makes it so much easier as I don’t need to be worrying about getting to work on time, and she comes home clean, walked, brushed and happy. She’s almost disappointed to be home! I would recommend Country Canine Care to anyone looking for a fun, caring and safe dog care service provider.”

We were in way over our heads with our high drive, strong willed, rapidly over-powering German Shepherd puppy and by the time we reached out to Deb we had been considering re-homing as an option. The joy of our first family puppy was quickly becoming overwhelmingly stressful.

Together, working in both group and private lessons, Deb was able to effectively assess our dog, our lifestyle, and our needs. She provided us with practical, simple and effective training techniques that gave us hope. She clearly has a huge wealth of training knowledge, a deep admiration and respect for various canine breeds and an uncanny ability to ‘speak’ dog. Deb, hands down, saved our family from the heartbreak of re-homing our furry family member and we cannot recommend her enough for your dog training needs.
