On April 1st, 2020, we acquired an awesome facility located in South Gower Industrial Park just east of Kemptville to be home to HERO K9 & Wellness Centre, offering Daycare, Training, Hydrotherapy and Massage services to our K9 Community! We have a total of 2900 square feet of indoor space.
Our Daycare/Training area 25 x 50 feet, equipped with rubber flooring, removable room dividers to use the space for multiple purposes at the same time, a large garage door to open for lots of fresh air and sunlight, ensuring our K9’s safety with a large gate that spans the width of the open garage door with our fan’s keeping our area comfortable for everyone.
Our Pool area 25 x 25 feet, is equipped with an automatic lift that allows us to safely bring mobility compromised K9’s to the pool deck height. Our pool is surround by a deck with railing and will have a rinse station for before and after your dog’s swim. We have installed a mineral system in our pool, this system is to provided the same level of cleanliness and sanitation chlorinated pools, but uses only 0.6 ppm instead of the average 10 ppm for saltwater pool systems, making in more gentle on our dog’s skin and coat. Our pool measures 9 x 17 feet in size and 42 inches depth. We have access to an upstairs viewing area, that will allow our clients to observe their dog’s therapy session, getting a great view of what is happening in the water. We will be installing underwater camera’s in the near future to track your dog’s progress.
In our reception area 25 x 25 feet, we have installed rubber flooring, have brought in some great products, including the Natural EM Tick collars. We have one treadmill already in the reception area for indoor exercise and will be adding a few more pieces of equipment to keep your dog’s busy and well exercised even on cold and rainy days!
Our outdoor area 35 x 50 feet, is completely enclosed with 6 foot high commercial grade chain link fence, with self closing gates. This area is located behind our facility so it is a nice quiet area for the dogs as not much happens back there, no people, dogs or cars passing by to cause anyone added excitement. This makes our outdoor exercise area much more controlled as we know ahead of time what the dogs will be exposed to, not too many unknown’s out here in our rural setting!
Our facility also has an upstairs area, allowing for quiet time if necessary and an area for anyone interested in renting our facility to have an area for preparing and serving lunch, as we have a few tables, chairs, microwave and refrigerator. We also have washroom and laundry facilities located in our pool area.
We can’t wait to open our doors to offering all our services, unfortunately due to the Pandemic we have experienced many delays. Our Hydrotherapy training has been delayed and is rescheduled for July 2020 and Massage training has been rescheduled for September 2020. The renovations are almost completed and we hope to have our doors open for Daycare and Recreational Swims before the end of June 2020.
Currently we have opened our doors to T&T Dogs Unleashed Training Services, group classes. Please checkout facebook for more information on these classes.
Looking forward to meeting you all soon! Kathy & Cindy
