*****  Our girls seem happy here. It’s a nice smaller environment which is great for our two aging girls. - July 2024 - Pattie Burton - kennel

***** Our Buddy spent 10 days at Hometown Kennels And Grooming, and we couldn't be happier with the care he received while there! He is definitely a nervous dog around new people and situations, and his usual boarding facility was fully booked for the dates we requested. After looking online at a few other options in our area, we were impressed by the set-up of the kennels and secure yard at Hometown Kennels And Grooming.

Jane & Pete were more than accommodating right from the beginning, giving Buddy time to roam around the fenced in yard and adjust to his new surroundings/sniff the smells etc. They reassured us he would do well, and they were right! It was nice to see some pictures of him enjoying his stay on their Facebook page while we were away.

When we went to pick Buddy up last night, he was out in the yard with Jane & Pete, coming up for pets and looking completely relaxed! We will definitely be recommending Hometown Kennels And Grooming to our friends and relatives, and will certainly be booking Buddy in again! Thank you again! - May 2024 - Jenna DesRoches - kennel

Charlie and Sophie had a great time at Hometown Kennels. Jane and Peter are lovely hosts! - May 25 & May 26 - Marie McKinnon - Kennel

***** - I was very happy with my dogs stay. Her room was nice and cool Even on very hot days. She had her own out door run through an opening from her room and she was able to also enjoy a larger area as the dog take turns with the larger area. The owners are very nice. I would recommend this kennel - May 2024 - Anita De Oliveira - kennel

***** - May 2024 Céline Downer - Kennel

*****   I was very pleased will Jane and Pete.. Milo forgot me because of the care and fun he had. When I picked him up he was happy to see me. This kennel is very clean and well maintained. This was the first time bringing Milo to a kennel and I was ultimately impressed. I would recommend this kennel to anyone. Thank you so much for your care of my Milo. - April 26, 2024 - Ojay Lohr - Kennel

*****  Our almost 2 year old Golden Retriever, Hazel enjoys her stays. I know she is well cared for, safe...  April 2024 - Catherine Haig - Kennels

***** To say the least, I was anxious to board my girls for the first time.. Jane and Pete allowed us to do a visit of their place prior to the girls stay, While our girls were there we received plenty of updates and pictures. We will definitely be bringing them back. - April 2024 - The Tryons - Kennel

***** March 2024 - Céline Downer - Kennel

Jane and Pete @ hometown kennels are great with Rex and Tank! We have had our dogs here when we travel and we never have to stress because they are in good hands while we're away. Their place is so well set up and nice and clean each and every time we've been there. This is in our opinion the best place to go! Thank you Jane and Pete!

Feb.15-25 - Pacheco family - kennel

Once again Marty had a great visit. He gets excited when he knows he is coming here.

Dec 12, 2023 - Alan Taylor - kennel

This is by far the best place Myli and Harry has ever been too(3rd time now). The best service and kind people. My dogs love going to the boarding here. Everything straight forward. Very punctual and really respect our time. Never had to wait for pickup or drop off. It's a home based business but they are very professional and do the best to make it the best experience :) will be using their service in the future. Thank you so much Jane and Pete!!

December 2023 - akhila shaji - kennel

Scout has been staying with Jane and Pete for years - it is her home away from home. Sometimes she stays for a day or two and other times for weeks or even longer. She always gets excellent care in this clean and well organized kennel. Jane and Pete are dog lovers and they will take the best care of your dog.

Nov 11 - Dec 16, 2023 - Linda Jones - Kennel

Our dog Marty actually looks forward to visiting Jane & Pete. This is a change from our previous dogs, they didn’t like being boarded. I wish that Hometown would have been recommended to us years ago. Thank you for looking after Marty, and for giving us peace of mind.

We were very impressed with the great layout & cleanliness at Hometown kennels. Our Toller enjoyed his stay!

Oct 29 to Nov 1, 2023 - Shannon Hart - Kennel


Thank you, Jane. He sure was tired when he came home yesterday but it was clear that he enjoyed staying with you guys. We were very nervous to leave him but we wouldn't hesitate to leave him with you again. Finally found our trusted kennel 🙂

A big thank you for taking such great care of our fur baby while we were away on holidays!

Jane & Pete were great while Thor stayed in their kennel!  Best care ever!

July 24 to July 29, 2023 - Susan Davidson - kennel

Loved how clean and well laid out the kennels were.  The option that Molly and Bailey could go in and out of their space was a great feature.  We could tell Pete and Jane are passionate about what they do and took care of our furbabies.  Loved seeing pics on social media.  Will definitely use them again and highly recommend them.  Thanks from Bailey and Molly

We are so fortunate to have a wonderful kennel. So close to us, we have 2 puppies. We were quite busy Saturday Jane and Pete are the best. Jane even sent us pictures to reassure me that everything was great. I can't recommend this facility enough.

They are just amazing!

Thanks again--June 11/23--Mary Lu Herns--kennel

First time using this kennel for our pup.

Was a great experience. Owners are very easy to communicate with. We really enjoyed seeing pictures on social media.

Our dog has been snoring away since we picked her up, clearly tired from all the fun and outdoor time she had.

We can’t wait for Stella to be able to go back in a couple of months :)  May 19/23 -- Emma and Jimmy -- kennel

Really great experience, the owners are friendly and courteous. The facility is extremely well laid out and clean. We will definitely be booking again. -- May 15/23 -- Sam and Matt -- kennel

Our dog stayed with Jane and Pete for a week. Communication was great. They provided updates with photos while we were gone. Our dog always seemed happy and comfortable! Will definitely be using them again. -- April 2023 -- Matt Ferren -- kennel

I recently left my dog at Hometown Kennels & Grooming while I went on vacation, and I couldn't be happier with the care and attention that she received. The staff was incredibly friendly, professional, and accommodating, and I knew right away that my dog would be in good hands.

The kennel itself is spacious and well-maintained, with plenty of room for the dogs to play and exercise outdoors. My dog absolutely loved being able to run and play with the other dogs, and I could tell that she was having a great time.

When I picked up my dog at the end of my trip, she was happy, healthy, and clearly well-cared for.

Overall, I would highly recommend Hometown to anyone looking for a safe, reliable, and comfortable place to leave their furry friends. Thank you to the staff for taking such great care of my dog! -- April 2023 -- Felipe Brephoi -- kennel

Very awesome grooming place. Second time coming with my one year old golden retriever. I can tell her trust in her is sooo good. Got a B+ today and she looks beautiful. Will definitely keep coming back ❤️ Thanks! -- Jan 11, 2023 -- Trudy Hyde -- grooming

This was our first time boarding Scout and Ginger with Hometown. Ginger's first time being boarded at all. And she's a handful. The facilities are very clean and the entire process very professional. But more importantly, our Aussies were taken care of extremely well,. Jane sent photos of them playing and running around, something Aussies excel at. Highly recommended!  Thanks -- Jan 10, 2023 -- Riddell's -- Kennel

This was our first experience with Hometown Kennels and we were impressed with the cleanliness, organization and how caring Jane and Pete were. They updated us with pictures while we were away. Our dog was well looked after and got the extra attention he thinks he needs. -- Oct/Nov 2022 -- Marg -- Kennel

We were very pleased with the care given to our dog while we were away. This was the first time leaving Bear and we are happy to say that everything went well from the kenneling to the grooming. We will definitely use Hometown Kennels & Grooming again. -- Oct 13 - 21, 2022 -- Wally and Sharon -- Kennel

***** The best Kennel I been at in many years....Jane and Pete are amazing and sure love animals....I think when we got our dog home she was homesick for the Kennels and wanted to go back....They do more than we ever expected a Kennel to do and wouldn't dream of ever taking our dog anywhere else....Thank you guys so much -- Oct, 2022 -- Ray Curry -- kennel

Very pleased with everything, Darcy’s 2nd stay with Jane and Pete. Professional clean facilities and friendly people. Will be back for sure.

This is the first time visiting Jane and Pete since moving to Paris. I was very impressed! Jane did an excellent job grooming Copper, my 15 year old Aussie! He can be timid sometimes and he was very relaxed when I picked him up. I toured the kennels with the intent to board Copper in the future. Very clean and well looked after. Pete was around to meet Copper too. A very relaxing place I won't hesitate to take Copper for future grooming and boarding.! -- Pauline Ware -- July 25, 2022 -- grooming

I have been to countless places in Paris, Brantford and Cambridge and this is the only place I trust with my pups. She doesn’t over charge and she does an amazing job. I wouldn’t go to anyone else.--Kirsti Blinkhorn -- July 22, 2022 -- grooming

The girls love Pete and Jane! The excitement starts from the moment we enter the yard. They are well cared for and it shows. We would leave them there without hesitation. -- Barbara Campbell -- July 20/22 -- kennel

This is the place to bring your fur baby and know fully they are in good hands and well taken care of with Jane and Pete. Their place is so clean, well set up and inviting! They are both lovely people! We have been in the past with our other dog and now our newer fur babies had their first kennel stay together for a good week and did wonderfully. Rex and Tank will be back in the future for more sleepovers I'm sure of it. Definitely the place to go and know you have no worries in regards to your dogs care here while you're away. A five plus star stay!:) Thank you so much Jane and Pete! -- Jenn Pacheco -- week of July 9, 2022 -- Kennel

***** Jane and Pete are great pet parents to Maggie when we can't be with her. Great rates. Maggie is always happy to go there on "vacation" - Kelly Doherty - June 2021 - kennel

I have a female soft coated wheaton who is a challenge to groom. After several grooming failures Hometown was recommended to me. Grooming is still a challenge however Hometown has persevered and a good relationship has developed. I also like that they board dogs as well so my brat knows them through grooming if boarding is required  If you are looking for a top notch groomer I highly recommend Hometown. - Rose Marie Webb -- May 10/21 -- grooming

Our dog Kali loves it at Hometown. We trust Jane and Pete to give her the best care when we are away We highly recommend Hometown! - Janet Schut -- Oct 8-13/20 -- Kennel

My wife & I were extremely impressed with this facility, It is truly a cut above other boarding & grooming facilities we have visited over the years.  The overall layout is immaculate, both Jane & Pete are not only very courteous & professional but have a a way of making you feel right a home. immediately.  Our 2 puppies were groomed to perfection especially after an 88 day hiatus due to the pandemic.  We have no hesitation to highly recommend this operation to anyone wanting to groom or board their loved ones because it is obvious by our visit that they will receive the highest degree of care. -- Sandi & Gary Miller -- June 13, 2020 -- grooming

It was Rusty’s first time at a kennel in the 11 years I have had him. He tends to be anxious in new circumstances so I was somewhat nervous about how he would respond. I have to say Peter and Jane went above and beyond to make sure Rusty was comfortable. The service was excellent and I would bring Rusty back. Highly recommend this place!

Very happy with the grooming, Bear loves going here for his spa day and can't wait to get out of the car and in to see Jane. The place is always spotless -- Barb Gambell -- Feb 14/20 -- grooming

Peace of mind. That’s what is guaranteed here. We got the grand tour of Hometown Kennels when we dropped off our Dobie for the first time. The grounds are impeccable and a lot of thought was put into their setup. Their prices are super reasonable and I love how they post daily pics of our dog during his stay. Jane and Pete LOVE what they do and it DEFINITELY shows! Our boy is quirky and super anxious outside of us but felt more than content staying here and not only did he come home a happy did we! -- Cantina Schweitzer Leggo -- Feb 1, 2020 -- Kennel

Scout enjoys visiting Jane and Peter whether for a day or an extended stay. Scout runs to greet them and always wags her tail when she sees them. I have been impressed by the cleanliness and comfort of the kennels, and the accommodation that is made for Scout's bed, bone, etc. I love the fact that in warm weather they have free access to their own run and see the other dogs, but can also get away to their own 'lair' anytime. Also it is super helpful for Scout to be groomed (and Jane does a great job) while she is staying at Hometown. Jane and Peter are very friendly and accommodating - and care about the dogs individually with cameras trained on each kennel, a super daily routine, and the comforts of home. Thanks Jane and Peter! Linda -- Linda/Scout -- Repeated over last few years -- Kennel

We were extremely pleased with the care that Bear received at your kennel. It was comforting for us to be able to get an update and picture so we could enjoy our vacation.

We can’t thank you enough for the love and care Bear received while in your care😀😀 -- Dave and Lynn Fulkerson -- Dec 22, 2019 to Jan 6, 2020 -- Kennel

We recently brought our 1 year old dog Luna to the kennel for her first overnight stay away from us / anyone she knows well. Jane was great at communicating with us, letting us know what was to be expected and welcomed us to look at the facility. Everything was very clean and Luna was a happy doggie when we picked her up. Luna will definitely be back! -- Karla -- December 31, 2019 -- Kennel

We have been a returning customers since 2017. Jane & Pete are great at what they do. Jasper always comes home with either a tie or scarf which are holiday themed.

I can't recommend Hometown Kennel's services for grooming highly enough....We love them & so does our dog Jasper -- Tom Eaton & Jennifer Pennell -- November 16th 2019

Hometown Kennels looked after our 2 beloved boys when we were in a serious pinch. They made everything super easy, helped out with extra unexpected details, and provided excellent loving care to our 2 Border Collies. We could not have asked for anything better. We are extremely happy with the service and care. We recommend them highly and would definitely use them again. -- Tiffany Lazic -- November 2019

We were very pleased with Bears care during his stay. Bear is a high anxiety dog and he settled in just fine. We thank you both for your excellent care of Bear. We will be back again very soon. -- Dave Fulkerson -- November 2, 2019

Jane and Pete run an amazing dog kennel. Our dogs were happier and healthier than I’ve seen them from any kennel. They had their food regiment adhered to, got to play with their toys, and had lots of outside time. It’s nice to have a smaller more intimate kennel where Jane and Pete get to know your dogs. I guess our dogs had some time with their grand kids, which is nice that they were able to get out and play with people. We’ve recommended them to everyone we know, and several friends and family members are booking soon! Did I mention their price is very reasonable! I look forward to booking with them again. --- Daniel Knoop --- September 12-23 2019

Cooper enjoyed his first stay for my daughters wedding. The accommodations where clean and had lots of room and the price was great. He will defiantly be back for another stay. Thank U Jane and Pete -- Robyn Cadwell -- Sept 13 to 15,2019

Love having peace of mind that my fur baby is being looked after so well when we go somewhere and he can’t come! -- August 24-25 2019 -- Kate & Jeff

Kali just loves staying at Hometown. Beautiful grounds and very clean kennels definitely recommend sending your pets here. Thanks again Jane and Pete -- Aug 17-19 -- Janet

We’ve had our dog Bailee stay with Hometown Kennel several times and she’s always happy to go and no issues while she stays with Jane. The kennel is clean and has outdoor access to an outside pen. We are beyond happy with our pets staying with Jane and her husband and look forward to future stays at hometown kennels. -- Rachel and Roger Mabee -- August 4-10

Clean, comfortable and caring? We feel good leaving Casey there and she is always happy afterwards. Highly recommended ---Nancy Marcos ---July 26, 2019 - July 28, 2019

We were nervous about dropping our 1 year old OEB pup Vern off for the first time without family but we were happy to find him happy and healthy after staying a week and at Hometown Kennels with Jane! Thanks very much for taking such good care of our little guy! -- Aaron -- July 20

Love love love Hometown Kennels. Jenny even got a report card for her grooming and if you know anything about me you'd know how much this pleased me LOL -- Kristy White -- July 20, 2019

I was very happy with the care that my girls Maggie and Coco received at Hometown Kennels. I was shown the facility and the routine was explained.

Hi Jane and Pete, Thanks for looking after Jack. He seemed quite happy when I picked him up. the facilities are great -- really clean and well set up. It is nice that there are only a few dogs in each area. Much quieter than other kennels.

We will definitely bring Jack to you again. ...Brad -- June 2019

Jane is awesome.... Our dog Jasper never fusses when we pull into the driveway so he obviously trusts Jane to groom him. When he's done he always has a cute little tie or scarf on with a report card which I love. If you need a groomer then look no further because Jane is the best in our opinion.--Jennifer.Pennell--July 6th/2019

Our Little Jack just spent 11 days at Hometown Kennel. He is always happy when he see Jane and Pete. Jane kept me up to date on how Jack was doing, even sent pictures. Thanks for taking such good care of our fur baby🐶❤️ -- Brenda Elner -- June 23-July 3 2019

Bear enjoys going there for his grooming. He can't wait to get out of the car to see Jane, she does an excellent job -- Barb Gambell -- June 19/19

Ryder stayed at Hometown Kennels for 4 nights this past weekend and did extremely well. This was his first time in a kennel on his own as we lost our second dog only 2 weeks prior. He was very depressed prior to taking him and we had a hard time feeding him. I messaged asking how he was doing and I received a message back right away saying he was doing very well and was eating just fine. I also received a picture of Ryder with Pete interacting at his level. I love the one on one contact he needed that he would not have received at the larger kennels he was at in the past. I would highly recommend this kennel. Thank you for taking such good care of our boy. -- Tracy Litt -- June 6 - 11, 2019

It was Harley's first visit to Hometown Kennels and we were very pleased with the care and attention he received. He is not an "easy" dog but Jane seemed to manage him well with all of his "issues". We appreciated the pictures on facebook which reassured us he was doing well while we were out of the country. He looked very handsome after his spa day and we were glad to have a clean dog to bring home. We will certainly use Hometown again in the future. -- Anne & Bob -- May 15 - 28, 2019

I was very pleased with the treatment my dog received during his week stay at Hometown Kennels Jane and her husband were both very kind and friendly people which made my dog feel very comfortable and at home. I will definitely recommend them to my friends and be a return customer. Thank you for taking such great care of my Lux while we were on vacation . -- Nellie Gomes - May 12 - 20, 2019

Thank you for your caring ways!! Wrangler will certainly be back and happy to be with Jane and Pete again soon! - David Powell - April 15, 2019

My Diesel LOVES going to see Jane for his spa day! I know he is well taken care of just by his excitement when I say "are you ready to go to the SPA?" I'm always so pleased with Janes grooming on my Bernese Diesel. He is a big boy and isn't fond of getting on that table for grooming but he LOVES going to see Jane- Katie Johnson - 5stars - April 15, 2019

Thank you very much for the excellent care and grooming you gave our dog while we were away. It's so nice to leave Brea with you and not be worried about her. Gord and I highly recommend Hometown Kennels - Beverley and Gordon Sider - March 25 to April 1, 2019

I have never boarded a pet before and I was quite anxious about boarding our new 4 month old puppy Cooper, Jane was recommended to us by our daughter, she had her dog Macy there in the past so this put our mind at ease. I was very impressed with the facilities as soon as I arrived. Jane has this down to a science. There was a picture posted on Facebook of Cooper while we were away which we really appreciated seeing. Jane responds to messages quickly and took such great care of our baby. I would highly recommend Hometown Kennels. We are already booking our next visit!! - Erle Savory - March 23 to April 1 2019

We are extremely pleased with how George was treated here. When we picked him up he was as happy as when we left him. He was there for 18 days. I would definitely recommend this kennel! Scott Hunte - March 2, 2019

Thank you Hometown Kennels for taking care of my two girls Molly and Lily! You were very accommodating and the girls loved their stay! Lovely little kennel with a beautiful setting. We'll definitely be back! Heather M - March 17, 2019

My dog loved it! It's a very welcoming atmosphere and you can tell that the dogs are very well looked after during their stay! Seeing pictures of my dog having fun in the kennel on their Instagram page helped ease a distant dog-mom's mind. Would definitely recommend to people I know.

Gunner enjoyed spending his first time being in a kennel for a week. Looking at the pictures he enjoyed the sun tanning the best �

Our boys Ty and Micki love going to see Jane. On our drive to Jane's home the boys begin barking with excitement and can hardly sit still. Ty and Micki have been both groomed and boarded with Jane while we take our vacation it's always been a positive experience. This is the best care we have found for our dogs. We highly recommend this kennel 100%.

Jane is fantastic with my girl Marley. I know that Marley is always well cared for and gets a lot of attention when she stays at Hometown Kennels.

Sophie has been going to hometown since she was 12 weeks old and she is now just over a year. They take such great care of her and Sophie truly loves to go. She loves to play with the other dogs and even gets to work on her manners while she is visiting. I would never leave Sophie anywhere else or with anyone other than Jane and Pete. I highly recommend them.

We have been taking our Rottiweiler mix here when we go away for medical appointments to the US or Montreal and have never been disappointed. Bear usually gets very anxious going anywhere but when we turn for home town kennels he can't contain his excitement and drags us to get to Jane and Pete to say hello and head for the kennels. I would highly recommend them to anyone for grooming or boarding!! Thank you guys once again for everything you have done for us and Bear.
