Daycare, Grooming & Boarding for Dogs

Home Buddies is a hidden gem in Etobicoke, near the intersection of Bloor and Kipling Avenue and has been offering loving pet care for the past 25 years in the west end of Toronto.  We provide Daycare, Grooming, Boarding and Retail out of our indoor and outdoor facility.  In addition we are also a Supplier of Big Country Raw Food – a healthy choice for your pets.

Our goal is to provide your dog with the opportunity to socialize and exercise in a space that is both comforting and safe.  We fully believe that a well socialized dog is healthier, happier and more obedient at home.

We welcome your dogs for short visits or long stays depending on your requirements and have multiple packages to suit your needs.

We treat each dog as if they were our own and are proud to sponsor of the Etobicoke Humane Society

Give us a call to discuss a trial day for your dog.
