Country Canine Care provides a safe, fun environment for your dog to socialize, exercise and learn.


Boarding your dog overnight is like a vacation for your pet!

Dogs stay overnight in our Daycare facility or our main boarding building, both are similarly heated and cooled with overhead fans. Depending on your dog’s overnight habits, they may sleep in large crates or large pen style enclosures.

During the day overnight boarders join our Daycare guests – see Daycare for details – so please take the time to fill out the Care Plan for Daycare/Boarding. Again, this agenda is ours; we welcome your input so that we may accommodate your dog’s unique requirements during your absence. Our goal is to create an environment and schedule that is as close to home as possible.

Overnight guests are monitored through the night by both audio and a color visual camera. Calming, peaceful music is played at a low level from late evening through to early morning hours. Every effort is made to ensure each dog is settled and content before the lights are turned down for sleeping.

Effective June 1, 2021 our boarding services are reserved for clients of our daycare and training programs only. If you have a boarding reservation pre-booked for 2021 it will, of course, be honoured.


A stay at Country Canine Care is always fun!

“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.”

“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.”
