About Us

Loving dogs and cats is what we are all about! We provide an alternative to placing your pets in a ‘traditional kennel’ while you are on vacation. This is our full time ‘job’ and we LOVE IT!

About Escape to the Country Dog Kennels & Cattery

Welcome to Escape to the Country!


Hi, I'm Emma Godley and I own Escape to the Country Dog & Cat Kennels. Established in 2011, I work full time with my partner Tony and the 'Escape Team'!

We are all animal lovers and wanted a place that we would ‘leave our own furry kids’. Like many people, we worry about our family members too! The dogs and cats in our care become part of our family. The dog kennels and cattery are an extension of our home as we live onsite, which means we are always available to your pets!

Your dogs and cats are able to feel relaxed and comfortable in the peaceful surroundings. This is a true country retreat for your loved ones! It's also extremely accessible being only 12 minutes West of Okotoks and 30 minutes SW of Calgary.

All of the Escape to the Country Team has an extensive knowledge in the care of dogs and cats having been involved with them for all of our lives.

We are Pet First-Aid Certified and Veterinarian Recommended! 

Your pets well-being and mental state of mind are of the utmost importance! We are able to provide a level of care that gives personal attention to all dogs and cats boarded here and we are dedicated to offering a friendly, secure and caring environment.

From puppies and kittens to seniors, pedigree or rescues, special diets, medication or nurturing nervous guests, we always go the extra mile to make them feel at home! Both you and your pet can have a worry free vacation. Our aim is to ensure your loved ones have a better holiday than their owners! You can even see how they are doing with our Facebook video and picture updates!

Being a small dog kennel and cattery, space is limited so please book early to avoid disappointment! We look forward to meeting you!

Thank you!

Emma and the Escape to the Country Team
