WELCOME TO SOULMUTTS TORONTO DOG BOARDING
We are trained pack leaders offering trustworthy and personal care to you and your dog. Our dog pack is our family. As each new member joins us, they become an integral part of our pack, our family and our lives. We play together, have sleepovers, go on day and evening outings to our private acre dog forest, out of town retreats, beach picnics, and much more. It is very important for us to create and nurture these bonds because, after all, this is why we do what we do!
Boarding your dog isn’t just about finding someone to feed and walk your dog while you’re away. It’s about finding someone who provides them with an active routine, a social and safe environment and who cares for them like they’re one of the family. Our daily routine involves group socialization, skill building, good behaviour reinforcement, and high energy off leash play. It’s so important for dogs to get out into nature every day so they can stretch their legs and really run as a part of a pack. We provide a free run home environment, while still making sure all of our dogs are comfortable; regardless of age, size or energy level.
WHAT MAKES US SO DIFFERENT?
Our 4000 sqft Privately Owned Home
We’ve totally customized our house for the dogs. It has different areas for small and large dogs, as well as puppies to sleep at night. They can all play together as one pack or we can give specific dogs their own space while we progressively work towards socializing them into the main pack.
We’ve installed professional grade rubber flooring, a custom stainless steel safety gating system throughout and have 1000 sqft of secure outdoor space on site with easy access to a private double garage for safe loading and unloading for trips to our private acre forest dog run. There is locker room to keep your dog’s belonging safe during their stay and a feeding room to ensure that your dog isn’t bothered while he/she is eating breakfast/lunch/dinner.
At night dogs are not shuffled into cages/crates and locked up for the night. We are not a ‘lights out & shut down’ type of service. There are separate rooms for small dogs, large dogs and puppies, as well as private bedrooms that are available upon request. There is a live in pack leader and dogs that stay with us have a homestyle evening schedule. After dinnertime, they hang out all together, they go out for evening play and late night pee/poo before bed. Then they are free to choose where they are comfortable sleeping; whether it is in one of the cushy open crates (no doors on them), cushions, dog beds, couches, raised platform bed, or to make a nest of pillows and blankets.
Our Private Acre Forest Dog Run
The largest private outdoor space in Toronto is available to all the members of our pack. All the dogs that accompany us to the park have been pre-screened and deemed to be ‘Pack Safe’, which means they are well socialized, completely non aggressive and fully vaccinated.
Our dog run is fully fenced and has a loading and unloading area that is gated for secure entry/exit to/from the park. It is also a forest environment, which is much more fun than the standard square plot of land that is the typical public dog park. They can run through the trees, up and down the hills, in and out of the playhouse, and really get a good run/chase going in the vast open space.
We are all about getting dogs out for high energy pack play. We go out rain or shine and we want our dogs to be able to be dogs! We are happy to adjust your dog’s outdoor routine to fit their at-home lifestyle upon request, but otherwise the time they spend with us is time being a part of a real dog pack; rain or shine and all the fun that comes along with the forest included!
Largest & Safest Dog Transportation in the City
Starting with the commercial fleet vans with the largest cargo space available, the Ford E250s, we have completely customized the interiors to provide your dogs with the ultimate in comfort and safety.
The rear cargo area has been transformed into a reinforced crash resistant, fully insulated box. This material is comfortable on the paws and food safe. This makes it possible for us to spray wash and disinfect them completely, creating a much more sanitary environment than seats/cushions/carpets/blankets that hold urine/feces/bacteria/odor. They have also been outfitted with a heavy duty metal mesh barrier to create separate riding sections for large and small dogs. This way all the dogs can ride in comfort and safety, no matter how small they are!
Most importantly, these vehicles are completely temperature controlled on a professional level. The rear boxes are equipped with full HVAC systems, which provide circulation, heat and A/C. Standard built in systems just aren’t strong enough properly heat and cool a vehicle from front to back evenly, especially with a pack of dogs inside!
We would love to have your dog join us in our home and get them out to play with our dog pack. Contact us today for more details and to set up a meet and greet so we can get to know each other better and we can see your dog in action. We look forward to hearing from you 🙂
