Greetings! At this time of Thanksgiving, all of us at Countryside Animal Hospital and Kennels would like to thank all of our clients for providing us with a fun and rewarding way to make a living.
Last year when we heard the Northfield Countryside Kennels facility on Baldwin Avenue was closing we were saddened. That facility opened shortly after we did ten years ago. Deb, the previous owner of Countryside Kennels, and I joked about picking the same name (Countryside) and having to deal with getting confused all the time. That facility was great and the service was great.
In an effort to fulfill the most common request we receive at the clinic, "When will you start boarding?" we are happy to say we acquired the Countryside Kennels facility in June of this year and are now offering boarding and doggy daycare.
We made some changes at the kennel by adding a large outside play areas for the boarding dogs, we added a cat room with a wonderful play area for feline boarding, and started a doggy day care, with its own outdoor play area.
The only thing I can say is go out there and take a tour with our manager Michael Gunderson; it is awesome.
We have also started training classes with a larger facility at the kennel. My wife Virginia has been taking our dog Sophie to our new obedience class in the hopes that Sophie will get her Canine Good Citizenship Certificate and become a pet therapy dog. Pet Therapy dogs are allowed to visit residents of long term care and retirement communities where pets are not always an option. See the inside of the newsletter for details on our class offerings.
Whether it’s here in Dundas, at the clinic, or out in the country, at the kennel we enjoy being part of you and your pet's life experience. We will be here to prevent them from getting sick, make them feel better if they do have a health problem, and house them when you can’t take them with you. Thanks again for letting us care for your furriest family member.
