Nicely socialized dogs in reasonable good health and considerable good humour are welcome at our Farm for day visits and as longer term guests!

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Do not administer Bordetella vaccines during the three weeks prior to any planned socialization or farm visits to avoid any possibility of spreading potentially contagious symptoms that some dogs may develop after vaccination – minimum three weeks before attending the farm!

NEW IN 2024! The Kitty Loft is now available to rent for your friendly CAT – a private room upstairs away from the dogs!  Give us a call to discuss this new feline guest service.

Ask about our ‘check in at home’ service available within our local area – we can drop by to feed the fish, cats, or the horses, let Fido out for a pee break, make sure the heater is on the lizard and throw him some crickets, water the goats, put your chickens in for the night…etc.

Your dog will love to try our “Beggin’ Hearts & Bones” farm-baked treats – available at our Farm market tables


Dog daycare & boarding services conveniently located less than 10 km from the TCH#104 between Antigonish and New Glasgow in north eastern Nova Scotia… OK, we are a little bit off the beaten track… but your dog will really appreciate that extra mile! So many of our clients say their dog starts “singing” or gets really happy when they recognize that old covered bridge over the Barneys River on the way here!

We will be happy to meet you at the main gate with arrivals and departures scheduled for mutual convenience

Pets please arrive / exit leashed or crated to ensure proper introductions and etiquette with others in the yard

For your own and other guest’s safety please do not open any farm door or gate while unattended by Farm staff

Grooming or obedience training is not offered on-site but can be arranged with great local providers on request

Arrange a no-fee MEET & GREET visit soon!
