There are eight large yards to allow dogs to be play-matched based on:
- Social skills
Yards are monitored for behaviour and maintained for cleanliness.
Hygiene, safety and comfort are the three critical guidelines for our indoor accommodations. Individual sleep areas are spacious and clean. Dogs are placed with attention to their behaviour with other dogs. (Dogs who don’t care for each others’ company are not placed side-by-side.)
Indoor facilities are designed to maximize air flow/fresh air and are heated during winter months.
