About Us

Pets Stay Home Training & Care relocated to Vancouver Island in August 2015. We had been providing pet services in Winnipeg, MB since 2004 and will continue providing training, behavioural consultations and pet sitting in our new location. Services will be provided to the Oceanside area.

Started as a retirement business to stay active, and using knowledge from many decades of obedience training with our own dogs, Pets Stay Home grew into a full-service pet care and dog training service. Pets Stay Home includes two services: Pets Stay Home Training & Care and Pets Stay Home Training & Behaviour Consulting.

Our mission is to help pets stay with their families. We help with their care so that you can leave your pet at home. We also help with behavioural issues. We help you understand your pet and for your pet to understand what you want of them.

Our services include pet care in the pet’s home, mid-day service, puppy assistance for the working parent, behaviour problem solving, help for the senior with their pets, and just about anything pet related.
