“The Doghouse welcomes dogs of all sizes and ages and has a wonderful and knowledgable staff. Everyone I know seems to go there!”
Misha loves the Doghouse :)
Misha my 12 year old Duck Toller has been going almost every work day to the Doghouse since she was 4 months old. She receives excellent care, two walks a day,along with cuddles and treats from the staff. The owner Barry has been great and bends over backwards to help us out with Misha. He has done me great personal favors like taking her to the Vet to follow up on an infection when I left her at The Rex Dog Hotel(his second dog business he runs)and was in Europe. We use the Rex Dog Hotel a lot for overnight stays and any vacation when we go away and cannot take Misha with us. I appreciate the care and attention that they give my dog. Indeed after 12 years of knowing Barry and his staff, we can honestly say that they are like extended "family" to ourselves and our dog. It is nice to have someone you can absolutely rely on to take care of you dog! Thanks Barry.
Not for a larger Dog
Not recommended for larger dogs. The owner is starting to have “burn out” and you can tell. They are starting to be very selective of the dogs that they want to take. When you talk to them on the phone they say no problem but you can tell they are not looking for extra work. If you have a mid to high energy dog, look somewhere else. The owner wants easy non - excited dogs. With so many doggy day care places in Vancouver they are not the best option. To their defence, If you have an older dog who just wants to sit around and hang out PERFECT. Hopes this helps other people who are looking and doggy day care. I wish I would have known this from the beginning as I would have never gone.posted: August 21st, 2008
I have gone here since I was a puppy and LOVE IT! [NOTE: There is a "small dog" Doghouse down near Granville Island for those small dogs who think they are small dogs. If they think they are big dogs, the can come and play with the big dogs!] I get walks when I need them and play until I drop ... which is usually after I come home from my day with my friends. Every one I know comes to the Doghouse!
