Hear what people are saying about Dog Village!
We feel so lucky that Dog Village was recommended to us by a local dog walker. Our puppy, Archie, has more than his fair share of energy and general puppy goofiness. Archie has been going to Dog Village since he was a small pup and has always been so well looked after, it feels like his second home.
When he gets home from an active day at Dog Village, he is exhausted, so we know he's had a great time playing and socializing with all the other dogs.

My dog loves Dog Village and so do I! All the staff are very friendly and experienced. As a first time dog owner, they guided me through puppyhood, junior stage and so much more. Their grooming service is also the best in town. Would definitely recommend this place!

We have been clients of Dog Village for well over a year, from the time we brought home our puppy. We attended training classes and attend daycare at least once a week. Dog Village is an excellent, friendly fun place where we feel completely comfortable and happy leaving our dog there all the time. She runs into the daycare every time and has fun all day.
We also have her groomed there regularly which is very convenient and easy, as well as they do an amazing job. I would highly recommend Dog Village and we will continue to enjoy our time with Inese and her team on a regular basis!

I have been bringing my dog Kai there for months now and he just loves Inese and Dog Village! He is such a happy, friendly dog and so well socialized in this environment! I couldn't ask for anything more! The location is convenient, the owner is flexible and you can see the love for the dogs there. I am always at peace knowing my puppy is there!
Our 6 month old puppy Zoe has been going to Dog Village 2-3 days per week for the past few months. She LOVES it!!! On days that she isn't going to Dog Village she is not a happy puppy. At daycare she spends her days running and playing with all her friends and is absolutely exhausted when she gets home.
I can't begin to tell you how amazing Inese is with Zoe and all the other wonderful dogs at daycare. She takes excellent care of the dogs - it is obvious that she truly loves what she does! We would be lost without Inese! We are so happy that we found Dog Village and highly recommend it.

When we were looking for a daycare for our new rescue, Cally, it was really important to us to find a place that treated dogs like individuals. Cally was shy and jumpy around new people and strange dogs but Inese and her team made her feel right at home.
They make sure Cally gets her quiet time when she needs it but they also make sure she is social and involved with other dogs to help build her confidence.
Cally has made leaps and bounds since being at Dog Village and I would recommend them to anyone.

My Stormy is a nervous dog so I took her to Dog Village for the Social on Sunday afternoons. Inese was so great that I signed Stormy up for training and started bringing her to daycare and for boarding.
Inese really met Stormy where she was at and worked with her (and me) to ease her anxiety. I am completely at ease knowing she is in great hands with Inese and her team at Dog Village and that she is socializing and playing with other dogs instead of being crated at home. Stormy comes home happy and tired and she loves being around other dogs.
Stormy is my first dog and Inese has given me great advice about everything fron anxiety to her pulling on leash. Inese understands the way dogs think. I highly recommend Dog Village.

My Portugese Water Dog Ziya LOVES Dog Village! They say it takes a village to raise a child - well it's nice to have one for a puppy too.
Inese and Dog Village have become a second home for Ziya. She loves to play at the daycare and when we go away, we know she is in great hands with Inese for boarding. Ziya always comes home happily exhausted and I often get photo updates from Inese so I'm not missing all the fun.
Brittany does a great job keeping Ziya clean and trimmed, no easy feat with her wavy dirt attracting fur and love of mud puddles!
I highly recommend Dog Village for daycare, boarding, grooming and training. Ziya learned a few things in her early days thanks to Inese and her small class and teaching style.

Our family is brand new to the whole dog owning eperience (some may say they are furry kids). Inese and her entire group at Dog Village have made Maggie's transition from puppyhood to the early beiginnings of the "teenage phase" smooth and fairly easy for us all.
Brittany & Maria offer plenty of friendly advice and resources whenever something comes up.
Never one to find the time for extended periods of sleep, Maggie loves both being at the daycare and the Sunday socials. We definitely recommend Dog Village.

Inese and the Dog Village team take wonderful care of Juno, our Braque Francais pup. Living in the west end of the city and starting a new job in the east end meant that I needed to find a new doggie daycare. We looked at a number of pet daycares in the area and Dog Village was at the top of the list in our search.
We liked that the facility is open concept from the time you walk in - there’s nothing to hide. We also liked that the daycare was flooded with plenty of natural light from the front windows. After months of taking our pup to Inese, I’m still waiting for the day I catch her off-guard with a less-than spotless daycare floor - I’d say that cleanliness is somewhere between a passion and obsession at Dog Village.
Another great part of the relationship we have with Dog Village is the trust we’ve built to have Inese board Juno while we are on vacation. Overall, Dog Village has been the solution for our puppy daycare and boarding dilemmas.
We are thankful to Dog Village for the love, attention and keen interest they show towards our dog and family. Inese and team run a business and I suggest giving them a try - I’m glad we did!

My cocker spaniel, Tyson, has been going to daycare with Inese since she opened and both he and I love it. I work full time during the days, and daycare allows him to get out for exercise and socialization in a positive environment instead of being at home alone. He even knows the days he gets to go to daycare and play with his friends. Tyson has no trouble in sleeping at night after daycare as he is very tired.
Inese is professional, caring, and always puts the safety and well being of the dogs first. While he is there I know Inese reinforces obedience, is very encouraging and provides a friendly environment by providing play and exercise.
I have taken my dog to other daycares before Dog Village, and by far Dog Village is superior. The facility encompasses an environmentally friendly atmosphere as well as the building is designed with the dog’s health in mind. Inese brings the personal touch and each dog is treated as part of the Dog Village family. While Tyson is with Inese I have the peace of mind knowing that he is in good hands and being well taken care of while I’m at work.

My dog Indy loves going to Dog Village! Its so reassuring for me to know he's in great hands in a fantastic dog environment. They take the time to know each dog with their unique personalities and needs.

I'm Sultan, an 8-year old female, cream-coloured Labrador Retriever.
Although I am very friendly pretty much with every breed of well-behaved dogs and human companions, I admit I'm quite sleepy in the morning when my human parent takes me to Dog Village. As soon as we turn into the parking lot, however, I am wide awake and pumped to get into the daycare to greet every one, whether dog or human. It's impossible not to be!
I am very well loved there, treated royally, fed on time with my snacks, played frequently and, in some way, a little spoiled. It's very clean there, especially in the play area, even after we do our #2s. I love Dog Village and everyone working there and taking care of me, especially Inese.
Hope to see your dog there and enjoy playing together one day.
Thanks for boarding Beau (Boston Terrier). He has been extremely calm and just sleeps all day since his time at Dog Village... What did you do? Lol!!!!
