I always wanted to work with animals - dogs, especially. When we moved to Stahls Road in 1982, it was a dream come true to open
The Doggie Motel. I was 16 then,
and have been enjoying my job ever since!
My husband, Peter does the maintenance and building jobs.
All the dogs are out for a good romp at least 3 times a day (usually 4, sometimes 5!) They are let out to play in one of three large play yards, or run free with others and go for "bush walks".
When I ask you if yours can "go free", you will be trusting that your pup will hang with the others and not go AWOL!
I am having to limit the dogs I take on as new clients to those that play really well with others in the big yard OR can go totally free.
Totally free means no fences when we go for hikes in the bush.
If you think your pup is a good candidate, then yes, we can give them a try
with an introductory visit. Let me know if you'd like to set up an appointment.
Please keep in mind that I require that there be at LEAST 10 days between your dog's last visit to the vet, groomer, dog park etc. (anywhere that there have been other dogs) and here.
The Doggie Motel has a new service attached to the
front of the kennel building.
We have opened a store, full of all kinds of pet foods- dry (kibble), canned, frozen raw, freeze dried, dehydrated, all kinds of supplies- grooming tools, bedding, litter, bowls, treats, dehydrated bones, collars, leashes, for all kinds of pets- dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, rats, horses, chickens...
We also have a lovely area built specially for cats- "The Kitty Corner"; well away from the doggies. The kitties each have their own or can share a cabin with their other family members. There is an outdoor "catio" for them to enjoy, as well as a catwalk across the top of one wall of the store.
