Our Commitment to Your Canine Companion

To ensure your pup has a pleasant experience at Dog Digs, we collect behaviour and health information for every canine visitor. 

If your dog is a social creature, we’ll properly introduce them to the other dogs before allowing them to play together to ensure it remains a safe environment for all.

If he or she isn’t very social, but does have toys or other objects they love to play with, we encourage you to bring them!

Customized Care

We understand every dog is unique and have their own individual needs.  Your dog’s day will be customized and tailored to suit their needs so they are able to have the best experience possible.
