We are outdoor, athletic enthusiasts.
Run of the House specializes in off-leash trail running and hiking as well as in home boarding and daycare for your dog. Our goal is to provide exceptional care for your dog while you are at work or play. We know that you want what is best for your family and this includes your pets. Your dog will be getting much needed exercise, both mental and physical when we have them in our groups. They will benefit from the socialization and basic training we provide helping them become a more fulfilled and happier member of the human/canine society.
CHECK OUT WHAT YOUR DOGS ARE MISSING:
A DAY FULL OF ADVENTURE
Socialization. Confidence. Exercise.
With select groups of dogs we can provide extremely intimate attention to your loved ones needs, personality traits and interests. We consider each dog’s energy level and agility to find the right group for them to join us in.
The terrain and routes change with the seasons so we may be hiking or snow shoeing, swimming, scrambling or straight up bush whacking on any given day. Keeping the tracks fresh stimulates your dog’s mind and body so the sentiment “same old same old” never applies.
Socialization, play and getting exercise in the fresh country air is just as important for your dog’s well being as it is for all of us. We strive to live a balanced lifestyle and invite your dog to join us on the days they can’t accompany you.
The care provided will reflect a preventative approach when it comes to safety and health. For this reason we limit our group size, spend more time bonding with your dog and gain their respect and trust through one on one connections. This method keeps things fun, stress free and consistent. We know when to say no, and do.
I was born and raised in North Bay, went to high school at Widdifield and Chippewa, then off to college at George Brown. After college, I started a career in sales. The sales industry gave me the opportunity to live in a handful of different places and travel to different locations. BUT, my passion was always working with, and just being around dogs… any animals for that matter. Having been the go-to dog sitter for my friends and family (and loving every minute of it), I decided to purchase a house with acreage in Corbeil, Ontario. And for the last 10 years, have been studying canine behaviour
I would travel for work and would spend my time thinking about dog daycares and visiting all different types of kennels and shelters. I was constantly thinking about what I would do differently when I'd open my daycare/adventure park. Growing up with many different dogs (labs, huskies, rottweilers, and Australian shepherds) and cats (most of which followed me home when I was younger), I wanted to make Run of the House a perfect place for our furry friends. On my property, there are streams, ponds, mud holes, high field grass and rock cuts for your dogs to explore.
