Bed and Biscuit is permanently back in business

A local business is set to have a grand re-opening

After a period of time away the Rocky Mountain Bed-n-Biscuit is set to hold a grand re-opening for all of its customers on October 15 from 9 a.m. to noon. Owned and operated by Lisa Harvey, the company caters to caring for dogs for residents in the area.

“The reason we opened the kennel is so we could have place where dogs could enjoy coming to stay, rather than hating every second. Every dog gets tons of love, attention and Exercise and we see ourselves as a doggy holiday camp rather than a kennel,” Harvey said.

The business opened in 2009 but had to take some time off due to an issues around how one area in their building was being heated. The time off gave the owner the chance to change what one area of the kennel was being used for and will now give pets the chance to stretch their legs indoors as well as outside.

Harvey moved to Canada from England in 2008. In England she trained in Canine Psychology for three years and said this helps her be “pretty fluent in Doggy language.”

She added, “I am a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Pet Dog Trainers and The International Positive Dog Trainers Association. I instruct classes in obedience and agility using positive reward techniques, and carry out behavioural assessments for problem pooches. I am also trained in advanced pet first aid.”

“We are going to have an open day. People are always concerned about where they are going to leave their pets. We are throwing the doors opens and saying, come in and have a look. We have nothing to hide,” Harvey said.

Owning four dogs of her own helps Harvey think through the eyes of a pet owner because she also worries about her pets when they are in a kennel.

“They are like my babies and you want to make sure someone is looking after them. I think once you meet the people, then you can be sure we will do our best to give them tons of love,” Harvey said.

All dogs who come to the opening day will receive a free gift with one lucky animal winning a free weekend of boarding at the kennel. The kennel is located at 1224 Horse Creek South.
