Great pictures! Our puppy Esky has been going to Doggy Doo Lil for 6 months and absolutely loves it! Thank you Mimi for taking such good care of our “baby” xo

” When we adopted our Samoyed, Gracie, we knew she would be a “project”. Gracie came with lots of issues since she was a rescue from a puppy mill, where she had been beaten, and had also run as a stray. We worked hard helping her to feel loved, safe and secure, but the long day without us (we both work) undid a lot of that work. And we would come home to an extremely redecorated house! Once we enrolled Grace in Doggy DooLi’l, Michelle continued reinforcing the same nurturing and disciplinary routines. Gracie thrived in the environment there. She loves to “help” Michelle run the daycare, and even “reminds” her if treat time is late! After all that hard work, Gracie comes home exhausted and climbs straight up on the couch for a nap after her long day. But come the morning she is eager to go to “work” and tells us off if we are taking too long! I would recommend Doggy Doo Li’l as an excellent daycare for happy, healthy dogs that get the exercise and attention they need.”

” I have a baby boxer who needs plenty of stimulation and love; when I leave Miss Maggie at Doggy DooLi’l, I feel confidant that she is getting plenty of both. She gets an opportunity to play and socialize with only healthy and happy dogs so I don’t have any worries about her picking up bad habits, injuries or diseases. And when having a sleep-over, she is loved, enjoyed and treated as one of the family. Doggy DooLil’ gives my dog everything she needs when I am unable to. Thanks Mimi! ”

” In February, 2009 I went to check out Michelle and her facility, she’s got a great setup in her basement and backyard that is awesome for the dogs. When it’s raining out, there is a covered porch, with a couch for the dogs, as well as the basement with an additional couch and numerous dog beds. In the play area are things to keep the dogs busy all day long, from balls, ropes, to climbing equipment.
So not only did I check out Michelle, she checked me out as well, to make sure we were both on the same page for expectations. We decided to give it a go. My pup Beau, goes to Doggy DooLil twice a week, he learned to make friends with the other dogs and he comes home at the end of the day, tired and content. Now my puppy is a bit strange, he loves other dogs but has a hard time with people, timid might be an understatement but there are two other people that he loves to be around and that’s Michelle and Gabby. That alone says volumes to me about how they treat my dog.
Would I recommend this business to anyone, yes, in a heartbeat and already have to people I work with. Keep up the good work Michelle!”

” Our dog Zoey can’t go for a walk in the morning anymore. All she wants to do is get into the back of my husband’s car, because that one takes her to Doggy DooLi’l daycare. When I pick her up she is loving life and then flops onto her bed for a cuddle. Michelle and her family treat Zoey as family. It is only a few dollars more than a dog walker and she’s there all day. The setting is beautiful too! Woof!

We have a basset hound called Senna and for those who don’t know the breed – they tend to be, um, how can I put this nicely…independent. We were at our wits end with her because she was still peeing in the house. We decided to try a daycare to see if it helped her and found Doggy DooLi’l. The name is a misnomer because they do A LOT with your pet. And the setting is beautiful. Michelle is warm and loving toward your pooch. Not only does she provide a safe and fun haven for your dog but she works with them on their challenges. She then communicates to you what she has done so you can continue to do this at home, giving your pet consistency. Michelle has also provided us with names of other professionals who could help with Senna’s behaviors. We worked on different things to help Senna stop relieving herself on our hardwoods and, I’m happy to announce, it was Michelle who made the recommendation for the trick that finally assisted Senna in stopping! This is a 5 star pooch resort and I honestly would recommend this daycare to all.

Congratulation on your first year of business! You have come a long ways and grown into a bigger daycare. WOW! I am proud of you. You have taken good care of my two Pomeranian babies and they have grown to love you and your family. There is such an improvement in their behavior. They start barking a few blocks away and keep it up until we pull up outside, then they race to the gate.
Thank you very much. ”

Our boxer, Bella, loves her time at Doggy DooLi’l Daycare. She took to it immediately and always comes home happy and exhausted. Bella does not get a lot of off-leash time as she is deaf so we really appreciate having a safe, fun place where she can go and be a dog. And their flexibility is a godsend. Thanks Michelle!

This past summer the doggy daycare facility that I had been using closed their doors!! My three-year-old German Shepherd Maya was now in need of a new daycare facility. We are so fortunate to have found Michelle’s Doggy DooLil. In just three months she has changed my dogs behavior, and my behavior, resulting in a calmer, more grounded dog. Maya loves going there and howls on the morning drive. Michelle’s approach to the pack mentality has really opened up a new relationship with Maya, and we are communicating better than ever. Our home as a result is a better place. I highly recommend Doggy DooLil.
Thanks Michelle and family for taking so much care of Maya.

My dog Woody’s life wouldn’t be the same without Doggy DooLi’l Daycare. I started taking him weekly as a puppy to learn to socialize. He loved it so much that we never stopped going. Wednesdays are the highlight of his week (actually of his life) when he gets to visit Michelle and the rest of his pack.
My two dogs, Aila and Bandit love going to Doggy DooLi’l. There they can play all day with their other doggy pals and I know Michelle treats them as if they were her own. The bonus is they come home tired and happy, and I don’t have to keep replacing things that they chewed up while they were home alone.
Doggy DooLi’l is THE place for any size dog. Our dog Kahlua perks right up in the morning ready to attend daycare and spend the day socializing with her new-found friends. Michelle is wonderful with the dogs and extremely accommodating. I wholeheartedly recommend Doggy DooLi’l daycare with no hesitations.
My Weimaraner, Lexee really enjoyed her time at Doggy DooLi’l. Each morning, she’s very eager to get into the car because she knows where I’m taking her. Michelle and the girls truly have a soft spot for animals…

Our doodle, Fabio, stays at Doggy Doo Li’l Daycare whenever we go out of town. Michelle, Sara and Gabby are wonderful and are real dog lovers. Fabio gets to hang out with them and also has a big yard to play in. This is a bonus when we live Downtown Vancouver. Michelle is very professional and I trust her with my own. See you next Xmas guys
