About Us


Since she was a little girl, Michele has always loved animals. It was not until she was in her mid-twenties that she purchased her first puppy, a Golden Retriever named Brandy. She's never looked back. Since then, she's had the priviledge of sharing her life with many other dogs, cats, horses and birds.

Michele is a high school teacher by day and spends her evenings and holidays working with her current dogs: six Australian Shepherds. She is currently training and competing in agility, disc, dock diving, obedience and sledding.



Dean was born on a farm on Allumette Island, Quebec, surrounded by nature and all kinds of animals. He enjoyed working outdoors, woodworking, and gourmet cooking. As a retired high school teacher, he enjoyed spending more time caring for the facility and ensuring that the dogs had a safe, and enjoyable time during their stay.
