Welcome to WAGS Canine Retreat!
Set on 75 picturesque acres of forest and fields, WAGS Canine Retreat offers the idyllic home away from home for your beloved pup.  We are a family run operation, situated centrally between Ottawa, Brockville and Cornwall. Our state of the art facility was built with your dog’s utmost comfort, safety and security in mind, putting emphasis on creating the perfect ratio of fun and relaxation for each of our guests, personalizing every visit to the needs of each dog.

Here at WAGS, our only goal is to provide a safe, loving and fun place for your dog.  Boredom doesn’t happen here—with The Bark Park and social time, who could be? The Bark Park is a fenced in playground full of play and agility equipment, with pools and water play in the warmer months. Not only that, you can choose to add forest walks through the kilometres of trails waiting to be explored!

When it’s time for a rest, our guests retire to their own personal indoor-outdoor suites (families can share a larger suite). The floors are heated inside and out with in-floor heating, and each room has a raised cot for extra comfort.  The outdoor runs are covered for shade and fully secured. Soothing music is piped throughout, and the lights dimmed to promote relaxation. Access to the outdoor run is given all day if it’s nice weather, and offered regularly if not.  The facility is ventilated with an HVAC system and has air conditioning for when things get a bit warm. A closed circuit camera system allows for 24/7 monitoring.

With a focus on delivering personalized service to each guest, whether it’s a quick visit or an extended stay, we ensure each dog is happy, healthy and having fun.  A mandatory trial daycare session is required before your pup’s first stay in order to ensure a safe and happy stay! See our Terms and Conditions page for more information.

Our first time at WAGS with their new owners and couldn't have been more impressed. Mia was a rescue who was in multiple homes before finding her forever home with us and is a bit anxious, but she thoroughly enjoyed having a chance to play with other dogs. We will be back and would recommend WAGS... to anyone!read more

I did my research and I checked out a number of kennels but meeting Bethany made me certain that Wags Canine Retreat was where I wanted my 4 month old puppy, Kylah, to go for puppy daycare and extended stays when we travel. Bethany loves what she does and it’s clear that she cares a great deal... about the dogs that she takes care of. She keeps in contact throughout the day with pictures of the dogs playing and having fun. I feel welcome when I drop off or pick up. She greets the dogs with a hug and a smile and my puppy just loves going!! The facility is beautiful and comfortable, with an incredible dog park and warm and cozy (or cool for summer), individual dog rooms. I can’t say enough good things. I’m so grateful to have Wags so close to my more

Dogs enjoyed their stay, especially Gus! Clean, well run facility with good care for the doggos. We feed raw meat and they kept our dogs fed on individual bagged meat for each dog. Great place.

My 4&1/2 month old pup went there for the day for her first visit today. She was happy to see me went I went to pick her up, but still wanted to play with all her new friends. Bethany is an absolutely wonderful human!! The dogs all seem to love her! So glad I found this amazing retreat for my pup.... I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a daycare or weekend more

Wags is a true lifesaver! Auntie Beth and her family were so understanding, accommodating and passionate. They are the ones who lived out their dreams! My canines are my babies and I feel great about leaving them in the care of Wags. My babies come home happy and tuckered but more importantly,... excitedly waiting for the next daycare day!read more
