Karen & I were born and raised in inner-city Toronto but have called the Niagara Region home for the last 10 years. After several decades of successful careers in Hospitality, we decided to make a change to work that had more depth. Our Basenji Babies, Cairo an ChuChu are more than just pets, they are our children. For the last four years, we have allowed two people to care for our pets, we are neurotic helicopter moms and our dog’s happiness is never second. We have cancelled many a trip or outing if our trusted Dog Chaperones are not available. As responsible “pawrents” we have created an extension of our home in order to provide a safe and fun environment for our visiting dog pals. Nothing makes us happier than seeing a dog run up the driveway to our home or get excited at the mention of our name. While your fur baby is in our care, we will treat them with the love, kindness and security they deserve. This is a safe haven so that you can enjoy your time away from them knowing they are engaged and loved. We feel honoured to serve you by caring for your fur kids as though they are our own.
We have a 6-foot-high wood fenced yard with mature trees and foliage, dogs can run free and will often pack run. Puppies love the freedom to chase birds, play hide and seek and rest in the shade. We have a heated and air-conditioned dog lounge with skylights that was specifically built for Urban Tailz. If the pups are napping in the lounge, we watch them on our dogcam. This is the perfect area for days that are too hot or cold, we want all our visiting pups to be comfortable. We have bowls, beds, toys, towels and blankets. Water bowls are always full and set up through the property. Dogs are always supervised.
BOOK WITH US
Therese and Karen are amazing! They have been taking care of my little guy as if he were their own. They are reliable and flexible - I couldn't have asked for better caregivers for Gary.
Billie visits Therese & Karen once a week and absolutely loves it! They take such great care of her. The best part is that she comes home exhausted and sleeps all evening! A true blessing with a 5-month-old puppy.
Indy loves Karen & Therese...maybe more than us? and we LOVE them because they are happy to follow our instructions to help Indy stay on track with his training. They are so attentive & mimic the routine we have at home so he feels comfortable!

Urban Tailz & Foster Farm Animal Sanctuary
Kevin & Morgan Foster have been our dear friends for the last 17 years. The Foster Farm Animal Sanctuary has been a lifelong dream and a labour of love for the two of them, they are truly guardians to our furry friends who cannot speak for themselves. We are in constant awe of their selfless dedication and patience to the well-being of all living things and their avid respect and care of the environment. In a world where much is going awry these two are doing things right, making a difference and living compassionately. We encourage you to visit their farm and donate to the beautiful world they created.
