Our Vanessa Campus is located on 100 picturesque acres. The property has extensive forests for exploration, open acreage for running and a pond for swimming. This is an exclusive facility and as such is not marked by signage at the road. All guests are required to pass an Assessment Day before access to any care services.
Our facility is a leader in its class. Individual suites designed using Mason Company’s unmatched infrastructure allows for total privacy for our guests both indoors and outside. This ensures each guest’s stay is more relaxing. The upper portion of the front door of the suite is glass providing a lot of light and lending itself well to routine supervision of our guests. Mason Company are world renown for building kennels unparalleled in safety, disease prevention, sanitation and ventilation. Our facility is equipped with multiple security cameras to ensure the safety of our guests at all times.
Using radiant floor heat provides each dog with a cozy place to rest. We enlisted the services of an industrial contractor to finish the floors with an epoxy frequently used in hospitals. This ensures impeccable hygiene. Our building also undergoes an extensive daily cleaning routine.
Each room has a built-in saloon style door allowing guests easy indoor/outdoor access. The doors are manufactured by Kennel Plex and are partially constructed of plexiglass which gives each room natural light and a view to the outside. Soothing music is played in the space to help the dogs relax during their rest time.
Our facility is also equipped with 4 Surgically Clean Air filtration systems, which is a ‘world class, medical grade indoor air purification system.’ These filters have a 6-stage filtration process and are often used in hospitals, dental clinics and nursing homes.
Throughout the day our guests enjoy socialization and exploring with supervision in one of our 3 fully fenced exercise yards. Our largest play space is a full 2 acres fenced with a secure double gate system. Our play groups are small and strategically planned by our Certified Pet Dog Trainer to make sure all guests leave their playtime having genuinely enjoyed the session and with better doggy manners. Our guests are guaranteed to be outside 4 times per day at an absolute minimum. Highly socialized dogs will have even more opportunities to play with friends.
We have a bright, spacious grooming salon managed by our professional pet stylist Ellie who will be happy to treat your dog to some pampering before home time. Guests are welcomed to book additional services to their stay such as manicures and pedicures, ear cleaning or teeth brushing.
We have 24/7 access to veterinary medical treatment should the need arise. Most of our staff are certified in Dog First Aid and CPR through Walks ‘N’ Wags Pet First Aid. We also have a veterinary technician on staff. We will honour your feeding requirements and are able to accommodate any feeding regime, including raw. Administering medications, maintaining fresh water to drink and proper daily exercise are part of our all-inclusive pricing because every dog deserves exemplary care!
