Canine Country Club was established in 2003 by Kate and her husband Andrew. Kate's first word as a child was "dog" and she begged her mother for a dog every Christmas and birthday. Kate's mom was a cat person, so she told Kate when she grew up and moved away she could have as many dogs as she wanted...and now she does!
Kate worked with animal shelters and rescues after graduating from the University of Manitoba in 1996 and while the work was rewarding, the number of people wanting to relinquish their pets took a toll. Kate knew there were people like her, whose pets were cherished family members, so she decided she would open a boarding facility for people who loved their pets as much as she loved hers. She would provide top notch care so owners could enjoy their vacations and not have to worry. Kate still takes a very active role in animal welfare issues and volunteers countless hours to rescue organizations. Often you will find foster dogs here at Canine Country Club, while they wait to find their forever families.
