"Dig It Dogs is the only place I've ever felt 100% comfortable leaving my dogs for the day or night. I feel like Elise treats my dogs like her own while they are in her care. Truly the best place in NS for dogs to be dogs!"

Private trails

Your dog will enjoy multiple daily romps in the safety of our fenced-in property. Our 3 acres of land is split into an open play space, a beautiful forest and an agility field.

Pool time

In the summer time, we set up a dog-friendly, full-sized pool for supervised swim time. It's our favourite way to cool off and the dogs absolutely love it!
