We are located in beautiful Muskoka. Happy Tails Pet Resort is a cage-free pet resort for furkids. Dogs mostly, but cats, and occasionally a pot belly pig, are our client guests. During the summers they enjoy running, playing, swimming ...chasing chipmunk, hunting frogs in our large open fully fenced parklands. In the winter we groom trails in their dog parks as well as break new ones via snowshoe to tired the dogs out. We have lots of lots of beautiful parklands, perennial flower and vegetable gardens, ponds, woodland trails, etc.

We are in the heart of Muskoka, minutes from world renown Algonquin Provincial Park. Muskoka is the National Cottage Country capitol with over a 1,000 pristine lakes and over 50 Lakeside Resorts. Our property is located in the spring-fed hilltop kettle lakes supplying fresh water to Lake of Bays. Just steps away from us are 4 small lakes with blue heron rookeries, where moose, whitetail deer and other wildlife come for a drink. Those who love watching wildlife in their natural habitat will love it. We often see snapping turtle, snakes and the occasional fox, wolf or spider for the those who need to prepare their inner fortitude.

There are lots of hiking trails you can simply walk out and enjoy. You can explore nearby towns and villages such as Huntsville, Baysville, Port Sydney, Dorset, etc or be refresh spending time at beaches or waterfalls park areas. There are a number of craft beer distilleries in the area and so many interesting tourist destination places to explore

We have lots of great projects underway this spring for those who enjoy being outdoors. Exciting, fun stuff, but lots of physical work. Construction skills and good physical condition helps.

We have bikes and a second house in Huntsville that is on a lake and walking distance to all the fun things in town, including Algonquin Outfitters where you can rent canoes, kayaks and water boards from the downtown dock, slip into a pub or coffee shop. It's a great spot to spend some downtime. During the winter there is an amazing ice track you can ice skate for 3 Kilometres at Arrowhead Park... and nearby Hidden Valley has a great downhill skiing.

We recommend arranging to have your International Drivers license. And we do prefer longer stays if you want to work with the furry guests.

We are keen on finding persons with good reception experience to help with the office area answering the phones, checking guests in and out, working on the computers.

Food is excellent, we do a lot of vegetarian dishes, but not 100%; we can supply fresh farm eggs, fish, etc. We have a lot of the extras that vegans are delighted to find in our larders. We are open to new culinary talents.

Be sure to check out our website and facebook. We have lots of photographs and it's a great way to learn some of the dogs' names that you will get to know during your stay.
