THE MUST TRY LIST TO KEEP YOUR DOG COOL THIS SUMMER

Posted on by Soulmutts Toronto in Dog Boarding, Dog Day Care, Dog Walking, Pet Sitting | Comments Off on THE MUST TRY LIST TO KEEP YOUR DOG COOL THIS SUMMER

Now that the weather is heating up and we’re starting to see more and more of these 20+ degree days -we’re soon going to be experiencing the dog days of summer 🙂   There are a ton of ways to keep dogs cool – some obvious, some fun, some innovative…. But no matter how you do it, it is an absolute must to make sure your dog is safe in the heat. We incorporate pretty much all of these methods in our dog walking/dog daycare/dog boarding services – but now you can try them at home this summer!       1. KEEP YOUR DOG HYDRATED     This is an obvious one – but will always be #1 on the list. Keep the water dish full and cool. A great thing you can do is throw a bunch of ice cubes in the dish as well. They’ll keep the …

Different Types of Dog Daycare in Toronto

Posted on by Soulmutts Toronto in Dog Boarding, Dog Day Care, Dog Walking, Pet Sitting | Comments Off on Different Types of Dog Daycare in Toronto

Over the past ten years since we opened we have watched Toronto’s dog culture grow and blossom – we are such a wonderfully dog friendly city and it’s only getting better! You can find all kinds of dog services in this great city of ours but the one I want to focus in on today is Toronto’s Dog Daycares.   There are a few different types of Dog Daycare available and it’s important to know what they are, and what the pros and cons of each types are so that you can make an informed choice and provide your dog with the best environment for their personality!       KENNEL STYLE DOG DAYCARE This is where your dog will have their own kennel / crate for the day while you are away and will be able to relieve themselves when they need to on a schedule.     THE …

7 Tips for Taking Good Care of Your Dog

Posted on by Soulmutts Toronto in Dog Boarding, Dog Day Care, Dog Walking, Pet Sitting | Comments Off on 7 Tips for Taking Good Care of Your Dog

People ask me all the time what are the most important things they can do for their dogs to keep them happy and healthy. I could go on and on and on for days on this topic but when it all boils down to it there are a bunch of specific categories that everything falls under. I thought it might make for a good “Top Ten” list so here goes: 1. Pick the Right Dog for You One of the biggest issues I hear from dog owners is that their dog is too “nuts” for them to handle. There are many reasons for this but one thing I see a LOT is a dog and an owner being mismatched. Choosing a dog MUST be more than picking the cutest one. All dogs are a major commitment; however, some dogs require WAY more exercise. Some dogs come with inherent health issues …

Why Do Dogs Eat Poop & What to do About It

Posted on by Soulmutts Toronto in Dog Boarding, Dog Day Care, Dog Walking, Pet Sitting | Comments Off on Why Do Dogs Eat Poop & What to do About It

We have a dog in our pack right now is voracious about eating poop.   Given the chance he would run around and eat every piece the minute it hits the ground – gross right!?!   This isn’t the first time we’ve dealt with this and it certainly won’t be the last. I have been asked before why dogs eat poop and what can be done to curb the habit.   I thought I’d write a bit on the topic because there are so many reasons/possible causes and some of them might be a warning that something else is going on with your dog’s health – so it’s important to pay attention to this if it’s happening with your dog!     Let’s start with the medical reasons a dog might eat poop:   1. Enzyme Deficiency 2. Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) 3. Parasites 4. Any Condition that Causes an …

Located next to the Humane Society, just steps from Queen St. in Corktown, our home is a totally modernized and fully customized 3500 sqft. fully detached Victorian dedicated to dogs! Some of its custom features include:

  • ✔ Top of the line rubber flooring that provides excellent grip throughout the house. It is both soft of the paws and allows for us to use a deep steam cleaning system, ensuring proper sanitation and a clean environment for your dog.

     

  • ✔ Fully custom designed gating system; allowing dogs free run of our home, while ensuring their safety and security.

     

  • ✔ Depending on the needs of our pack, our home can be converted from one massive play area to 3 personalized play zones; including a comfy chill lounge.

     

  • ✔ Small dogs that spend the day with us can enjoy their own private play area, or socialize with the whole pack if they are comfortable.

  • ✔ 1000+ sqft. of direct access, fully fenced wood chipped outdoor space.

     

 

Dogs have free run of our house!!! We use our gating system to allow us to have the dogs move freely through the house, but also keep them secure from things we don’t want them to get to (ie. kitchen stuff, cleaning supplies, dog food storage, laundry, and most importantly, escaping to the outside world). We can close the gates and create separate play areas for larger/smaller dog and higher energy/lower energy dogs or we can open them all up and have a multi room/multi level flowing playroom. We are always conscious of the conditions outdoors so we moderate play accordingly. On VERY hot or VERY cold days we ensure that the dogs are not outside longer than is a safe amount of time, or if it very rainy/muddy/freezing rain we take that into consideration!
 
During the day we play outdoors and indoors, depending on the weather and the temperature. The on site pack leader / supervisor manages play and engages our dog pack to ensure that they are not only getting a lot of high energy exercise, but also the rest time that they need. They can play as a group, one on one with other dogs, one on one with a pack leader, rest when they want to, drink when they are thirsty, sun bathe on a nice day, or if it’s rainy and cold they can choose to play indoors in one of our playrooms. Our dogs move/play at their own pace to what suits them best based on their size, age, energy level.
 
Outside or inside, our pack plays all day! We have a consistent daycare pack so they know one another very well and make very close bonds with the other dogs and the pack leaders. When your dog joins our pack they become a part of our family. We don’t have a revolving door of part time staff, we provide a consistent daily routine involving high energy play & group socialization. If you’re looking for the right place for your dog to spend the day while you’re at work or on the go, your dog will be happier here!

DOG WALKING SERVICE


Soulmutts Toronto Dog Daycare

3 HOUR OUTING TO OUR PRIVATE ACRE FOREST DOG RUN


$22/OUTING MONDAY TO FRIDAY


JOIN OUR PACK

Pick Up & Drop Off Included Within Our Service Area
 
All Pick Up and Drop Off Services Have a Minimum of 3 Days/Week
 
Outing Time Includes Transportation as a Dog Walking Standard
 
 
Bringing a new dog walker into your life is not just about finding someone to drag your dog around the block or up and down a million elevators. It’s about finding someone who can create a solid routine that involves group socialization, skill building/good behavior reinforcement and who allows your dog to really stretch their legs and run as a part of a pack. Like humans, dogs are social creatures and require off leash, energetic socializing time in order to be well rounded and happy. As the saying goes; a tired dog is a happy dog!

We have been providing high energy, off leash dog walking services downtown Toronto since 2008. We have a consistent pack of dogs who walk a minimum of 3 days/week for 2 very important reasons. Our dogs know each other very well and they know their routine. We are not introducing new dogs to another all the time, or multiple new dogs at once. This way we can maintain a much higher level of control over our pack’s behaviour and we can take away the unpredictability factor that is so prevalent at public dog parks. Furthermore, our pick and drop off schedule stays very consistent this way. When we start a new dog we integrate them onto our set driving route and we stick to it every day so that you and your dog can come to expect us in a much narrower window of time than most driving dog walking services.

How Does It Work?

We pick your dog up from your home and bring them to our Private Acre Forest Dog Run for some real high energy off leash play. This land is privately leased and is not open to the public. It’s a completely natural forest that has been fully fenced in; complete with unloading and loading zones so everything is done behind closed gates. It’s a great big space, full of trees, with a totally natural woodchipped substrate. We keep our private land clean and free of garbage, food and poop. We have an onsite water station, as well as fun doggy climbers for the dogs to play on and under 🙂 We do not use any personal toys/balls – only communal ones to avoid possession issues and we do not carry/use treats to control our pack on our outings.

All the dogs that come into our dog run have gone through our Meet & Greet Assessment process and meet our 3 service requirements:

They are Well Socialized, Non Aggressive and Fully Vaccinated.

We only take our dogs to our Private Acre Forest Dog Run, located near Cherry Beach. There are many things we love about our private land but the top five reasons are:

  • We Know Every Dog There


    The only dogs that are permitted in our space have undergone our assessment process and have been deemed as being “Pack Safe”, which means they meet our 3 requirements for service: They are Well Socialized, Non Aggressive and Fully Vaccinated.
  •  
     

  • We Know Every Person There


    We’ve all had bad experiences at a public parks with dog owners/dog walkers who aren’t paying attention to their dogs. At our park our pack leaders are on site to supervise, manage and mediate play. Since it is always the same pack leader picking up your dog they come to know them very well and know how the dogs in the pack are going to react to one another and what their likes/dislikes are!
  •  
     

  • Dogs Can Move at Their Own Pace


    We’ve got dogs of all ages and energy levels with us. They can choose to run around through the forest, follow us around if they prefer human play, hang out in the shade under the trees, sun bathe in the tree clearings, play with toys or not, play in groups or one on one – whatever suits their play style, ability and energy level.
  •  
     

  • It’s a More Natural Environment


    We love the trees and they provide us with a more natural setting, which always ends up being a great help to us. In the winter they provide an excellent wind barrier and in the summer the shade is absolutely invaluable.
  •  
     

  • Dog Toys, Supplies & Cleanliness


    We have everything we need on hand at the dog run; fresh water, dog toys, poo bags, first aid kit, etc. We take pride in the cleanliness of our park and make sure that we are always on the look out for stray poops. We also have fresh wood chips delivered on a regular basis.
  •  
     

We transport our dog pack in our one of a kind, top of the line dog shuttles. These are the largest, safest vehicles on the road. They are fully customized by industry professionals (the same company that does the Toronto Humane Society vehicles in fact!)

Some of the most important features of these dog shuttles include:

  • REINFORCED WALLS FOR SAFETY
  • SEALED INTERIORS TO ALLOW FOR PROPER TOP TO BOTTOM SANITATION
  • SEPARATE RIDING AREAS FOR SMALL / LARGE DOGS
  • PROFESSIONAL GRADE HVAC SYSTEMS
  • GPS DRONE TRACKING
  • REMOTE START & ENGINE IMMOBILIZERS
  • AUTOMATED TEMPERATURE CONTROL (FRONT TO BACK)
  • CUSTOM LED LIGHTING FOR THE DOGS

DOG DAYCARE/BOARDING HOUSE FEATURES


 
 

  • TOP OF THE LINE RUBBER FLOORING

    Provides excellent grip throughout the house. It is both soft of the paws and allows us to use a deep steam cleaning system, ensuring proper sanitation and a clean environment for your dog.

     

  • FULLY CUSTOM MODERN GATING SYSTEM

    Allowing our dogs free run of the house, while always ensuring their safety and security.

     

  • FLEXIBLE PLAY ZONES

    Depending on the needs of our pack, our home can be converted from one massive play area to 3 personalized play zones; including a comfy chill lounge.

     

  • SMALL DOG FRIENDLY

    Small dogs that spend the day with us can enjoy their own private play area, or socialize with the whole pack if they are comfortable.

     

  • PACK AND PRIVATE SLEEPING OPTIONS

    Personalized Bedrooms are available for both Small & Large Dogs that are available upon request.

     

  • SAFE ZONES FOR YOUR BELONGINGS

    Massive Custom Built Doggy Walk In Closet to keep all your dog’s belongings & food organized & safe.

     

  • ONSITE OUTDOOR PLAY AREA

    1000+ sqft. of outdoor play area wraps around the back of the house and is attached to a secure double garage so we can safely load and unload the pack for group outings.

     

 
 

We transport our pack to our private acre forest dog run in our customized, fully temperature controlled Ford E250 fleet van. It has separate sitting areas for small and large dogs for safety during travel. It is also lined with industrial rubber flooring to ensure good grip for paws and the ability to deep clean & sanitize from top to bottom.
 

We searched for the right place to create the perfect home for our dog pack. Having had our pack stay with us in our condo for many years, we knew we wanted to find something with more space and direct outdoor access, without losing the at home feel. We looked at a number of different industrial style buildings with 5,000sqft+ of space but in the end we wanted to give our pack a warmer, more intimate environment where they can truly feel at home. Thus, the dog house was born!
 

When your dog joins our pack they become a part of our family. Our motto has always been “Same Pack Leaders. Same Pack Mates. Every Time.” We provide a consistent daily routine involving high energy play, group socialization and, of course, super awesome evening cuddle sessions. Your dog will sleep soundly after a full day of socializing and exercising as an integrated member of our dog pack.

SUMMER 2017 OPENING ON HOLD FOR THE GRAND OPENING OF OUR NEW CHERRY BEACH LOCATION ! /h3]

We’ve taken Toronto dog boarding to the next level and completely out of the city! Our Country Dog Ranch is available seasonally from May 1st to October 31st. We leave every Friday after our regularly scheduled Dog Walks / Dog Daycare and return very late on Sunday nights. It is our most sought after location and we are excited to now offer it to our city dogs as well!!!

The entire property is fully fenced and completely secure but the dogs would never know it with the amount of land they have to run free on. There is ample flat grounds for ball chasing & top speed running, rocks and hills to climb, forest to chase each other through and a fantastic waterline to take a well needed dip on a hot day. Jumping off the end of the dock and getting the dogs to jump in after us is one our favorite things to do up there!

The dogs have indoor sleeping accommodations right in the center of the property. Some of its features include:

  • Fully automated temperature control.
  •  

  • Soft Pine Chip substrate.

     

  • Large comfy bedding for them to curl up on together at night.

     

  • Direct access to a secured outdoor area for late, late night bathroom needs.

     

  • Country Dog Ranch shot From the Lake

    We take the dogs down to the jumping dock for daily swims and for those who want to feel the wind on their tails, we do doggy boat rides! The dogs absolutely LOVE going out on the boat. It’s an excitement like no other! We always exercise extreme caution and never go too fast or ride in choppy conditions.

    We are happy to open our doors to dogs who are not regular Dog Walking / Dog Daycare / Dog Sitting clients of ours, however, we must always ensure that we only integrate new dogs who meet our 3 Requirements. A meet & greet must be arranged prior to departure for a full assessment.

    Our Dog Ranch is located just outside of Apsley, Ontario and is in a short distance from a reputable veterinarian clinic, as well as an emergency service animal hospital.

    All supplies for your dogs stay and travel are included in the cost. The only thing you need to pack is food!

    DOG WALKING, DOG DAYCARE & DOG BOARDING


    3 SERVICE REQUIREMENTS

    • VACCINATION

    All dogs must be fully vaccinated to participate in group activities. Mandatory vaccinations in Ontario include: Rabies, DHPP Boosters (Rounds 1, 2, & 3). Though it is not mandatory, we always recommend the Bordetella vaccine (kennel cough)
    any time you’re bringing your dog off leash with other dogs (eg. city dog parks).

    • SPAYING & NEUTERING

    All adult dogs must be fixed. We fully support and encourage the spaying & neutering of dogs and cats. Puppies that are still too young to be spayed/neutered are exempt from this rule.

    • TEMPERAMENT AND BEHAVIOUR

    All dogs must be well socialized and free from any aggressive/uncontrollable/unpredictable behavior. We absolutely believe that each and every dog can be trained and/or rehabilitated, however these skills require proper training and the pack environment is not suitable for such exercises. The safety of our pack mates always comes first!

    Providing Dog Walking, Dog Daycare and Dog Boarding Services Since 2008

    At Soulmutts Toronto Ltd. we provide flexible services for you and your dog.  We are a close knit pack and strive to maintain our pack balance by slowly introducing new dogs and keeping them on a consistent schedule.  We are a high energy off leash group environment. On our outings and at our Decked Out Dog Daycare/Boarding House we practice free run socialization. We let the dogs be dogs!

    We’ve been around for almost 10 years now and have watched Toronto’s dog walking,
    dog daycare and dog boarding business really take off. Though we’re often imitated (sometimes even word for word) we’re never duplicated! We’re always working to offer one of a kind services to you and your dog that you won’t find anywhere else!

    What Makes Us So Different?

    Our Private Acre Forest Dog Run


    The largest private outdoor space in Toronto is available to 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. The park is not open to the public and is supervised at all times by multiple pack leaders throughout the day.

    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 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 full on run/chase going.

     
     

    Largest & Safest Dog Transportation in the City


    We do not use our private vehicles to transport our dog pack. Our commercial fleet vans have the largest cargo space available and we have completely customized the interior to provide your dog 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/mats/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, our vans are completely temperature controlled on a professional level. They are equipped with full HVAC systems, which provided proper circulation, heat and A/C. Standard built in systems just are simply not made to properly heat and cool a vehicle from front to back evenly, especially with a pack of dogs inside!

     
     

    Our 3500 sqft Privately Owned Home


    We’ve totally customized this house for the dogs. It has different areas for small and large dogs as well as puppies. They can all play together as one pack or we can accommodate the smaller, older, shyer dogs by giving them their own space while we progressively work towards socialization into the main pack.

    We’ve installed rubber flooring, a custom safety gating system throughout and have 1000 sqft of outdoor space on site with easy access to a private double garage for safe loading and unloading for trips to our private acre 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.

     
     


    We are trained pack leaders offering trustworthy and personal dog care services. Our dog pack is our family. As each new member joins us, they become an integral part of the pack, the family and our lives. We play together, have sleepovers, go on night walks, out of town retreats to the country dog ranch, 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.

    Bringing a new dog walker or dog sitter into your life is not just about finding someone to drag your dog around the block or up and a million elevators. It’s about finding someone who can create a solid routine that involves group socialization, skill building & good behaviour reinforcement. We are about getting your dog out to really stretch their legs and run as a part of a real dog pack.  As the saying goes; a tired dog is a happy dog!

    We would love to meet with you and your dog to see if we are the perfect pack leaders for you!

    BIGGER.  CLEANER.  SAFER.  PRIVATE.

    When I (Ally) first started dog walking I used to visit public parks two or three times a day with my pack.  Over time, there were a couple of different issues that I found were becoming a problem.  First of all, most dog walkers are out at the same time so there could be up to 60 dogs in one not-so-big dog park at once. Secondly, not all of those dogs were well behaved/socialized/fixed or being properly supervised by their walker.  I found myself spending more time dealing with other people’s dogs than with my own pack.

    All that changed when two other long time trusted Toronto dog walking companies approached me with the idea of finding a huge private space that we could make our own.  Now we share our Private Acre Forest Dog Run; the largest private outdoor space available to dogs in Toronto.  It is fully fenced in for safety and also has a van-sized triple gate system so there is no dragging 6+ dogs across the street from the truck to the park area on leashes like at the public parks. We drive right in, close the gate behind us and let our dogs straight into the park.

    We have our park wood chipped on a regular basis and a water station for those super hot days of summer.  There is a jungle gym that the smaller dogs like to crawl all over and TONS of room for the big guys to really stretch their legs and get all of that energy out!

    We know every dog that comes into the park because we know every walker that comes in the park; they’re a part of our crew.  We trust each other and know that we would never bring an unsafe, aggressive or unvaccinated dog into the park.  We are also very vigilant about picking up ALL THE POOP that we see 100% of the time.  There is NO garbage in our park and we have lined our fences with burlap/tarps to make sure none blows in from the street.

    We’ve got fantastic tree shade from the rain and the boiling sun, and wind protection from our trees/fences, which provides us with shelter all year round.  You really don’t feel like you’re still in the city when we are playing in our park.  I know for the dogs it feels like a day out in the country.  They know when we are getting near and we can see all their heads start poking up, ears alert, tails start wagging and tongues start flapping about, the barking starts… IT’S PARTY TIME!!!

     
     

    SAFETY: PUBLIC VS. PRIVATE

    Public off leash dog parks are regulated by the set bylaws of the City of Toronto. These state that dog walkers can only have 6 dogs per person. Aside from the fact that this rule is commonly not adhered to, there is no limit to the number of dog walkers and/or dog owners that can be in a public park at one time. This means that around midday, the “rush hour” of dog walking, you can have any number of dog walkers with 6+ dogs each, plus any number of dog owners with their dog(s) in a park at one time. Add to that, there is absolutely no screening process for these dogs whatsoever. Anyone can come in and can bring in a dog that is completely unsuitable for an off leash group play environment, and there is no way to know if any of the dogs are up to date with their vaccinations. It can make for a potentially chaotic, and certainly an unpredictable environment, which are the biggest reasons we started looking for a safer option years ago.
     
    In our private forest there are multiple pack leaders present at one time, we load and unload within fenced barriers (not leashing our dogs and then running them into the park), we have met and assessed every dog there and they are all on regular schedules so they know one another and know/respond to our pack leaders. This is the only way that we are able to control WHO your dog is coming in contact with and WHAT KIND OF DOGS your dog is playing with. There is simply no way to do either in a public space. Our dogs are supervised 100% of the time.
