Welcome to Happy Tails

Muskoka Woodlands BUSH SPLASH, since 1996


Rich in Omega 3‘s and EFA, Bush Splash is based on Métis outdoor recipes of bear fat and alcohol. Good for people and pets it is safe enough to eat but it tastes awful! It uses organic source protein rich soybean oil, lemon and pure vanilla extract, with coconut fatty acid emulsifiers and vitamin A, C, E and D.

DISCLAIMER: Muskoka’s Woodlands Bush Splash is sold as an effective Outdoor Skin Conditioner, a novelty to help keep skin healthy and free of discomfort associated with life in the great outdoors.

HOW TO USE IT: Shake it then slather the lotion on exposed skin or fur and see how great it feels and smells as the scent changes from nutty to yummy chocolate. Rub some on to see what it can do for you in the great outdoors. Try it! You will like what it does for you and your pet. Insert link to Dale Peacock’s article in Cottage Dog on Bush Splash.

Why We Pioneered Cage Free Pet Care


In my childhood I had dreams of a wonderful place just like Happy Tails where dogs of all sizes, breeds and types enjoyed themselves. In my teens I worked for two different kennels; one who bred Siberians and other bred German Shepherds. I loved both breeds but since I loved the sport of dog sledding I ran Siverian dog sled teams for fun and for the tourism industry and then I bred them in the 1980's.  Isbok Kennels acheived over 75 Champion titles in obedience and conformation, including two international world champions, two OTCHA champions and many speciality winners.

Muskoka's retreat for the Furry Elite since April 1, 1996!  Experience is worth the extra distance. We pioneered cage free pet care in true Muskoka resort and kid-camp style. We are the alternative to conventional kennels with concrete, chain link and the 3 daily walk promises!  We are the alternative to congested dog yards and commercial concrete playrooms. Our guests are made at home in an appropriate lodge, cottage or home setting for their size, breed and need. They enjoy freedom to come and go between communal fireplace lounges with open pet-sized rooms perfect for a private snack or nap, and one or more of our 12 fully fenced dog parks and playgrounds on 25 acres of ponds, meadows and woodlands. Our favourite lab / retriever sized dog park is almost 10 acres in size with a huge swimming pond! Guests enjoy Muskoka resort atmosphere. They can run, play, and swim all day if they want to totally curfew free and collar free. Happy Tail Pet Resort and Camp provide assurance and joy for pet and owner alike.
