Loving the Cottage Dog Lifestyle!
Happy Tails Pet Resort & Camp has earned a stellar reputation as ‘Muskoka’s Retreat for the Furry Elite since 1996.’ Located just 5 minutes from downtown Huntsville, Ontario, our business is widely regarded as Canada’s pioneer in cage-free pet care. Founder & Owner Lisa Brooks is an entrepreneurial force with proven success in over four decades as a professional in the dog industry.
In the late 1990s, Happy Tails was spotlighted on Canada AM with Valerie Pringle as a Muskoka Camp for Fur Kids, and was also featured in a syndicated Cottage Life TV program shown several times a year throughout Canada and the US. Originally called “Happy Tails” by a small child, the name and the idea of cage-free pet care gained much popularity.
Happy Tails currently has 12 fully-fenced dog parks and playgrounds, situated on approximately 25 acres of naturalized parkland, including ponds for frog hunting and swimming. Extensive meadows and woodland offer ample room for dogs to run and explore. The Happy Tails experience has something for every size, age, breed and need. Our business provides numerous guest services and activities: Daycare, Resort Overnights, Camp Dog Activities, Long Term Pet Care, and a well-established Pet Shuttle Service between Toronto / GTA and Muskoka.
Happy Tails is your guilt-free alternative to conventional boarding kennels; a unique pet accommodation experience that is constantly improving and evolving thanks to a dedicated, forward-thinking team. Our dog lodges and cottages are accessible year-round, and offer cozy fireplace lounges with individual open-concept rooms for snacks and naps. Outdoor space is focused on FUN – a true dog resort destination encompassing acres of cage free, curfew-free, collar-free, fully-fenced countryside. Fresh air and the freedom to run, play or swim all day – minus the stress of congested concrete yards, traffic noise, chain link enclosures and leashes. As pioneers in cage-free pet care, we know what makes dogs happy!
