Welcome to the official launch of the HPC Video Ezine

We are thrilled to bring you this new format, letting you peek inside Holiday Pet Care ...aaand every couple of weeks we'll have something new for you.

We've got lots of great stuff planned to share with you.  Please join in by letting us know what you want to see.  That would be awesome!  Send us your suggestions and your questions via our facebook page or on youtube.  Some weeks will be completely devoted to answering fan mail.

A Personal Note from Cheryl

I am soooooo looking forward to the arrival of our 'Winter Break Pups'.  We have lots of fun every year, and I love that the dogs get to enjoy their holiday as well!  For some, this will be their first Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year's with us!  As always, watch our facebook page for postings throughout the season. Be sure to 'Like' us to keep up with what's going on.  Here's a link to our album from last year.

For me, the winter break is all about celebrating family and being grateful for all the gifts we are given. I love the giving nature of the season, the extra smiles and the reminders of gratitude. I really enjoy experiencing all the various traditions of the different cultures.  Hanakkah, for example, is a celebration surrounding a 'miracle' and what a great way to feel inspired.  Why not create even more miracles, by being grateful, and by celebrating whatever shows up in your life.

My definition of family includes the furry, the feathered, and the scaley ones too.  Having pets in our lives reminds us to enjoy life.  I am grateful for the wonderful daily reminders that my sweet old Staffie, Delilah, gives me! 


Wishing you magical times with your families, filled with lots of furry snuggles and warm-fuzzies.


'See' you in a couple of weeks!



P.S.  As we get ready for the upcoming season, Diane, Supervisor of Guest Services, has been busy working away, diligently processing deposits and confirming bookings for the Holiday Peak Season. By the way, if by chance you still need to make reservations, we have had a very limited number of spots become available due to last minute cancellations.  To find out which days are still available, give us a call or email us right away.       

This Week's Inside Peek 


Welcome to our first edition of an Inside Peek of HPC. 


This week's Ezine features an official WELCOME including special appearances from several of our Guests in our Upper Level Playroom... including Miller, Panda, Latte,Tinkerbell, Baxter, Mandy and a few more.


Holiday Pet Care is proud to be a Cagefree Alternative in Pet Care.  We truly believe that pets deserve an exceptional standard of care.  Offering you a quality facility that provides reliable and convenient service for your furry family members, is very important to us.  For dogs, this includes Dog Daycare and Cagefree Boarding, and for cats, we do In-Home Visits.  We believe in allowing dogs to be the social creatures that they are, and allowing cats to continue to be the Queens and Kings of their space (oops, did I say that outside my head).   

HPC Video Ezine - Dec 9, 2011

Give yourself the gift of peace of mind, knowing that your pets are extremely well cared for.  Best of all, your time away can be just as worry-free and guilt-free as it is for them.   


Stay tuned!  Even more furry-footage to come, in our next Ezine, December 23rd, 2011.   


In the meantime, for the latest info (and some pretty adorable pictures as well), visit our Facebook page.  Like us on Facebook

Gift Certificates for Holiday Pet Care Services

Need suggestions as to what to buy for Christmas or Hanakkah? 
What if you could ask your dog or cat?  If they could make a wishlist of what they want this holiday season, I'm sure they'd suggest a Gift Certificate from Holiday Pet Care, so they can enjoy even more time with their friends.

A HPC Gift Certificate is 'comfort and joy' easily packaged.  So much better than having to fake that you like that odd little figurine you were given, or be forced to wear those scratchy fuzzy red plaid socks. Your happy pet will be proof enough that you enjoyed your gift.


Order your Gift Certificates by calling Diane, Monday to Friday from 7am to 3pm at 416-561-7387, by email, anytime, or by filling out the PayPal form below.   

Please allow 2 business days to process.  You will be notified when your certificate is ready for pick up.

Client Spotlight

I love Holiday Pet Care. All of the staff are wonderful, and great with the dogs. My dog, Chance, goes there for daycare, boarding, grooming and I am always happy with the way both myself and my dog have been treated.

What I really love about their daycare and boarding is that it is cage-free, so Chance is free to play with his buddies as much as he wants (all day and night if he desires). I never have to worry about him being confined to a crate like a lot of other daycares or boarding facilities. I also love that they are staffed 24 hours a day so my dog is never left alone. Someone is always with the dogs

They provide cute "report cards" after your dog has boarded, which says what went on with your dog while you are away. The staff keep the dogs so busy, my dog always comes home exhausted from a day at daycare or after a boarding stay. He is always so excited to go to Holiday Pet Care - he pulls to get to the door everytime. The staff is also good if special requirements, such as if medication, is needed. They always know each dog's personality well.

Holiday Pet Care only accepts friendly dogs and all dogs must attend a Meet & Greet first, so I am assured that my dog is playing with well-socialized dogs. They also require up to date immunizations and flea prevention, so I know my pet's safety is a priority.
