Great for dogs who otherwise, would be left alone for long periods of time. Puppies who might get into trouble, do well with this service, since they learn how to interact with other dogs and get plenty of exercise throughout the day, leading to a good night sleep.
For those times when you must be away and your canine pal cannot join you. Our bedtime kennels are 4' x 7' in size. They include a petcot for your dogs comfort. Two dogs from the same household, that consume the same food, can be accomodated in one kennel, if requested.

Living on acreage, in an area where almost every family includes, at least 1 dog, my family and I decided that Greater Sudbury needed a 'free-range' option for kenneling. We know there are many 'kennels' not licensed or insured but, that would be taking chances with one of the family ....something we would never do. So, we took a look at the licensed dog kennels in the area, to see what we liked and what we could do without.
Many kennels were in disrepair, needing extensive upgrading and renovations. Some kennels had very small cages, I could only call 'jail-cells'...somewhere that food and water is provided, but not much else. Many of them could hardly hold one dog but often had two housed within. Poor dogs!! I would never do that to my dog or anyone elses. I could see that there was a real NEED for dogs to be kept like.......well, dogs.
Most dogs thrive in a pack environment. They are very social animals, both with their human friends but more importantly with their own kind. They learn and integrate into a pack very quickly. That's why dog parks are all the rage. For those dogs, my kennel is the best!! Every kennel provides their physical needs but we also provide their emotional and social needs. My hope is that you and your dog have all your needs met, the next time you need to use a dog kennel.
We are Sudbury's only free range dog kennel.
Every dog is checked if they, are social, have appropriate behvaiour and are up-to-date on vaccinations.
They are an extension of your family and we will always treat them as such.
This place is absolutely amazing! My dog LOVES to go there!

So happy to have such an amazing free-range facility for my dog to interact with other dogs in :)Angela Hodgins
Friends Furever has been a godsend for our golden retriever and our family. We have required their services many times now and we are so grateful for the thorough care that Rocky receives. ... It is reassuring to know that he is well looked after and receives lots of activity. Thank you, Darlene and NathanTina Wilson
This is an amazing place to leave your pet and have no worries. My dog loves it here! This is the only place she doesn't even realize when I leave. This place is very clean, spacious and friendly, I would highly recommend Friends Fur-Ever for your pet. You will not find nicer, more caring people.Bobbi-Lyn Carriere
