House Of Canine

One bark away from a good day!

“Unleash the fun and adventure, while we take care of your furry friend. Your dog’s home away from home.”

About

Welcome to House of Canine! Founded by Michaela Trykarova in 2020, we offer a small-scale, in-home boarding that provides safe, fun, and comfortable environment for your pets to stay in when you can’t be there.

 

Our Founder

Born and raised in Czech Republic, Michaela has always had a profound love for animals and their well-being.

This all started with her passion for horses and interest in animal psychology. Her dream was to work for the Mounted police, but her father who worked in the local police force and had those connections was against it as it seemed too dangerous. Little did he realized, that she was going to shift her focus on the K9 working units instead! So it’s to nobody’s surprise, that she has fallen in love with working line dogs at a young age.

 

Later in life as she slowly broadened her horizons and gained more experience, she landed a job at a local dog daycare, that concetrated on more complex canine behaviours. That’s when she found herself more and more interested in taking training into consideration, and as her passion and experience grew boarding just seemed like the next step, that made sense. 

 

All of that eventually led her to establish House of Canine, where she concentrates on delivering not only the highest standard of care, but also home away from home. 

 

She truly believes, that every dog deserves love but also a structure from where they can thrive, but also a safe place to explore, play and relax.

Dog Training

$ 100 /Session*
  • Do you need help to strengthen the bond between you and your dog? You came to the right place! In my training I focus on clear communication, where we can break things down to the basics and start shaping behaviors into where we want them to be.
  • I consider variety of factors when it comes to training, including the age, mental development, energy level, but also their specific breed, which will help us to achieve the best results along the way. Every dog is an unique individual and not all cookie cutter methods work for all. Let's make sure we start right. It’s all about creating a happy, confident, and well-behaved dog.

FAQ

I only take a small number of vetted dogs in at a time. That way I can make sure all of their needs (mental, physical and emotional) are being met. I believe small home based boarding is much healthier for majority of the dogs in order to lower their stress levels but also making them more comfortable when being separated from their owners. 🙂

No. My home is a cage free enviroment, however crates might be used for dogs, that are crate trained.

No, but it’s a bonus if they are.

You will need to provide their food, medication and walking/training equipment of your choice along with emergency and vet information. Feel free to bring their favorite toy/tug along but please limit it to one item.
