We have been around dogs and cats all our lives but this is our first kennel. We will ensure it is accommodation of the highest standard - a facility for the 21st century for those owners who are commited to the philosophy that our domestic pets are truely part of the family.
We chose to design and have the boarding kennels purpose built to have complete control over the facilities. We recognised a need for such a facility in the South Okanagan and believe Little Green Farm Pet Hotel will be an asset to the local community.
We have always had dogs and three cats of our own - we hope our current brood will enjoy a move to a more rural setting.
You have our personal guarantee that we will treat your animals as if they are part of our own family during the time they are with us.
I have a Masters Degree in Medical Science and a qualification in kennel management. I worked for 10 years in the field of animal health.
In addition to my commitment and interest in working with animals, I am a visual artist and poet; for a while I had my own gallery in Calgary. I could bore you with some of my poetry but this is hardly the place...
I imagine a kennel for the future where pets are given space, treated with respect and, above all, are given love.
I am a PhD Doctor and Scientist who has spent the last 20 years working in human microbiology and public health.
I believe we have a duty of care to our animals in the same way as we do to our human family.
Our own dogs and cats have been a source of great inspiration to me and helped me through the stresses and strains of an academic career and busy life in Europe and (for the last 8 years) in Canada (along with my husband!).
I relish the opportunity to switch focus from human health to the care of dogs and cats in such a beautiful oasis. Opening Little Green Farm Pet Hotel will also allow me to continue developing my skills in graphic art and web design.
