About Our Company:

With over a decade of experience, Country Tails has become a haven for local dogs since opening our doors in 2008. Our high standard of care and dedication to both fun and safety has created a space and reputation that we are proud of! More than just a kennel or boarding facility, Country Tails provides a loving daycare program characterized by one-on-one snuggles, slow and safe socialization, size-appropriate playtime, and our personalized approach to client care. We are conveniently located at the Clappison Animal Hospital ensuring both safety and convenience for all our clients and all of our staff have extensive experience in both dog behaviour and canine group dynamics.

Our dedicated staff members get to know each dog for their unique personality and we strive to make daycare a special place for every pup that comes through the gate. We accept dogs of all shapes, ages and sizes—our outdoor playspace is approximately an acre, guaranteeing every dog the space to run and play freely! Country Tails also has access to a temperature-controlled indoor play area that we love to use when the weather isn’t quite appropriate for outdoor play. We have multiple separate play-spaces so each dog has the opportunity to socialize and engage with like-minded friends, guaranteeing the best experience for all of our daycare pups. Our new friends are slowly introduced to our playgroup on their first FREE day to ensure positive bonds are formed and that it is the best fit for your pup. We want all of our attending dogs to feel welcome and at home here!
