Move over, Cesar Milan, we’ve found our own dog whisperer! Joking aside, we are so pleased to have found Ginette and the whole The Balanced Bark team. Our dog Baxter joined the dog daycare ‘pack’ over a year ago, and has thrived. Baxter had a rough (ruff?) start in life, as a stray with some injuries and likely having experienced aggression from other dogs, and he began to show insecurity and reactivity after we adopted him. Under Ginette’s watchful eye and her firm, caring approach to leading the dogs, Baxter has gained confidence and enjoys his days at daycare with his buddies. As owners, we’ve learned a great deal about how to best lead Baxter, and we’ve all come a long way in reducing his stress and reactivity. We’re grateful for Ginette and the Balanced Bark team!

We actually met Ginette 6 years ago when our dog Duke was dealing with some behavioural issues. Within a few sessions, he was much more balanced and easy to handle. And Ginette is such a wonderful resource to have when a question arises on how to handle a situation.
My wife and I are pretty busy and no words will ever be able to convey what Ginette and her staff at The Balanced Bark do for our Duke. He is a dog that prefers his personal space and keeping to himself, but he loves going to daycare and spending time with the other dogs. Somehow Ginette and her team bring out the best in him to ensure he fits right in. You know it's a good day full of fun and excitement when he passes out in the car on the way home.

I met Ginette over 5 years ago at a previous dog daycare she worked at. Right from our first meeting I knew she had a genuine love for all dogs. Each dog is special to her and that is the way she treats them. Ginette has been a big part of our dogs lives and our lives since then. She has done training with our dogs, she has taken care of them in her own home, she even walked them down the aisle at our wedding!
My dogs make a chaotic entrance every time we enter the doors of The Balanced Bark, they are always excited to be there. They go straight to the staff to say hello and don’t look back - that alone melts my heart every time, they clearly enjoy being there. They come home exhausted after a day of pack walks, playtime with their buddies and cuddles with the staff.
I would highly recommend this daycare to any one - they take care of the dogs as if they were their own, and go above and beyond. The staff are very friendly and professional, they provide excellent supervised care in a clean, safe environment.

We love taking Bowie to Balanced Bark. He was pretty timid at first but the staff was so great with him and helping him to fit in. He loves his daycare days, and we love the report cards! Ginette is always so easy to get ahold of! Thanks for taking such good care of Bowie!
Can't say enough good things about the Balanced Bark! We recently moved here from Vancouver where we took our dog to a daycare often. It was a gongshow of barking dogs crowding the gate at every drop off and pick up - we thought that was normal until the Balanced Bark! The dogs are so well behaved, quiet and calm, and Mya basically dives in the door when we bring her. Ginette and everyone else are wonderful.
Best daycare I have had the opportunity to put my dog in! Ginette and Kimmi put so much love into each and every one of their furry clients and my dog absolutely loves it here. Highly recommend!
