Having operated a successful luxury pet resort business since 1995, we know a lot about what dogs and their owners love. When we began to develop the concept of our own doggy daycare and boarding facility, we kept coming back to 3 core fundamentals that have allowed us to thrive over the years. These are health, family and love!
Health: We all know how important health is in our lives. We believe that good health is just as important in our dog’s lives. At Chris's Dog Hotel No Cages Luxury Pet Resort, your pet will be stimulated both physically and mentally. They will have lots of interaction with other dogs and staff.
Family: We want to be thought of as an extension of your family. Just as if a member of your family were watching your dog, we want you to trust us and know that your dog is safe and loved in our care. Building lasting relationships is what we are all about.
Love: In addition to our education, training and experience, everyone at Chris's Dog Hotel No Cages Luxury Pet Resort shares the most important quality of all when it comes to providing the best care and most fun for your best friend - we really, really, really LOVE dogs! And that love shows in all we do for your dog during their stay with us.
Because Shelley has a deep bond with her community, she has given back in many ways. Shelley has been donating to the Quinte Humane Society for the past 15 years. Shelley has also been raising non-perishables food items around the Christmas Holidays for the past 20 years, in 2021 Shelley was able to raise an outstanding 2000 pounds which went directly to the Quinte West Firefighters in Trenton.
Shelley loves her community and believes in doing her part to help in anyway she can.
THE TRUE NO CAGE PET RESORT
The team at Chris's Dog Hotel No Cages Luxury Pet Resort takes pet sitting to a whole other level of pet care. We are the areas original luxury pet resort that has been operating for over 27 years. From Monday to Sunday we are open 7:00 am to 7:00 pm for pick ups and drop offs. We are also open 365 days a year.
We accept all breeds of dogs except the ones listed below due to the type of Pet Resort we have, being a NO CAGE facility and that is my philosophy we have no separate quarters.
We Cannot Take: Pit Bulls as they are not legal in Canada, (full or part). Breeds that are to large for our facility. We have found over 27 years in the pet industry that some breeds tend not to mix well with most other breeds of dogs at all times and can cause the most bodily damage: King Chows, Bull-mastiff, American Bull Terrier, English Bull Terrier, Blue Blood Bulldog.

HOW WE RUN OUR PET RESORT WITH ONLY SAFETY AND LOVE IN MIND .
DOG PLAY & SIGNS TO WATCH FOR!!!
We are proudly Cage Free here at Chris’s Dog Hotel. Because the dogs are together all the time both inside and out, our Staff is very vigilant with playtime and rest time not getting out of hand. We have a wide variety of breeds here from Yorkie's and Shih-tzu’s to Golden Retrievers and German Shepherds.
Our Staff take a ton of pictures every day both sleeping and action shots and never is there any rough or questionable dog play. We do not edit or crop out questionable play shots because we don’t have to. Our screening process is such that we only accept calm well balanced dogs into our pack. Your fur child be it 5 or 130 lbs will always be monitored when playing/resting.
The below actions of play are never allowed here as the safety of our clients is our most important goal.
* Questionable dog play:
Staff are trained to watch closely for this behaviour and will intervene if this play escalates.
* Scuffling: If one dog is always being picked on and there is more than one other dog involved, this should be stopped.
* Tug with each other: This is fine, but watch out for body stiffening, growling, intense stares, enlarged pupils and intent. It could be a sign of possessive aggression.
* Stalking: This is a questionable one, some dogs stalk as part of a play sequence but it is often the first stage of a prey sequence or body slam.
Inappropriate dog Play: Any of the below behaviours are immediately stopped but because of our screening process most of this behaviour is never seen here.
* Biting of the neck or other parts of the body, grabbing.
* Barking at the other dog, especially in their faces. If it appears that the dog is “bullying” the other dog into play, then it is best not to let him do this. Puppies often do this. Do not let them, it is dangerous, they could get “told off”
* General over arousal and escalation of play.
* Humping, this is done by both sexes, it does not mean sex, it is often a sign of anxiety, it is not an appropriate way to elicit attention in this way, it is more reflective of a narrow repertoire of behaviours to get attention and it can be self soothing. It is not appropriate for your dog to approach others (particularly unfamiliar dogs) in this way, it is likely to end up in a fight.
* Air snaps. This is a way of the dog signalling intent, wanting to increase distance and it is not an actual bite, this is the next stage of the repertoire if the dog is not listened to. Listen to the dog. Why is the dog doing it? What is the context?
* Standing with his/her head over the other dogs shoulders. This is provocative, confrontational and rude. This is similar to bullying and you should call your dog immediately in this situation before it escalates.
* Body slamming. NO WAY. Not appropriate.
* Putting other dogs on their backs with mouths around the neck of the other dog and holding him to the floor.
* Dogs forming a gang. This is often attributed to them forming a pack. It is more likely to be a form of emotional contagion especially when a group of familiar dogs “crowd” another dog. This is intimidating and should be stopped.
Having your dog be balanced and taught appropriate play will make everyone happier.
Did Someone Say Pool Party? Calling all dogs... Come & play in our exclusive Doggy PlayGround & WaterPark, and we have 5 Pools! We have been established for over 27 years, and our luxury pet resort was built with one thing in mind: LUXURY no cage dog boarding and doggy daycare!

DOGGY DAYCARE AND BOARDING HAS NEVER LOOKED BETTER:
What our Boarding and Doggy Daycare has to offer: No Cages, Staff around the clock 24/7, that means they are never left alone for 1 minute.

In 2017, we added 4 wading pools, along with red, blue, yellow tractor tires that the dogs love to climb/run around, we've built a Doggy Platform for even more agility play time, we also have the very popular game Tetherball that all the dogs really enjoy, we added two Doggy Ball Pits and a one-of-a-kind Doggy Tunnel.

My staff and I strive everyday to push ourselves to maintain the Diamond Standard in Pet Care Service in the Trenton and Belleville area, while always trying to come up with new ideas to help make every fur babies stay with us only the very best experience possible for both pets and their people.
SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS AT THE ONLY DOGGY SPA LOUNGE IN QUINTE:
Pack dogs love to cuddle up and sleep together. Those dogs within my/your home will choose most likely to share bed space and nestle/cuddle up together. Dogs do this in order to gain warmth, comfort, companionship and protection. Now even when the dog is getting older, dogs or “siblings” often love to sleep curled/cuddle up against each other for comfort and security. Humans sleep together, why wouldn't dogs sleep together? And that's exactly what Chris's Dog Hotel No Cages Luxury Pet Resort has been providing to each and every Fur-Baby in our care. Hence the very reason why we are a "No Cage" facility.
We Have Introduced a Certificate of Pass.
After the initial Meet and Greet, we follow it up with a mandatory daysit assessment, this is to ensure that the dog/dogs get along very well with all the other furbabies, and whether they are trained, calm, well behaved, no excessive barking, no destructive chewing habits, and house trained. If your dog/dogs pass the Doggy Daycare Assessment, you will receive a Beautiful Congratulation Certificate of Pass. We will then take a photo of you and pet/pets holding the Certificate, shortly after, we will post that on Social Media.
A NATURAL HABITAT = HAPPY PUPS:
Nature Is Your Dog's Natural Habitat. We promise to never switch to very hot plastic grass, nor will we ever cement our natural habitat to make things easier for us. That is our promise to you!
