About Corinne

Hi, I'm Corinne. I am the primary care giver at Little Village. Your dog is on vacation in my home - he is my guest. As my guests, I feed them; hang out with them; monitor them unobtrusively; wander around the woods with them; and share my music with them in the evenings.

The spirit of Little Village is modeled after those wonderful old resort hotels where you were fed great meals, made friends, had adventures, and where you were well taken care of. You had freedom to come and go at will and everyone ate their meals together (half an hour later on Sundays).

I have for 30 years been adopting abused and abandoned dogs from shelters. I have developed a way of helping them overcome their emotional baggage.

I believe that dogs heal best when they heal each other and themselves. I believe they do this by being allowed to be dogs and by gaining confidence doing doggy things, at their own pace, without any pressure from me. I also believe that I support their healing by letting them know that I respect their feelings.

My life has always revolved around dogs and nature.

I live in the forest in a log cabin built especially for me, my Siberian husky and my four rescue huskies I brought to New Brunswick from the Yukon many years ago. I have always wanted to live in the forest, so for me to see nothing but trees from every window is a dream come true. My joy is to watch dogs playing with each other or setting off together on an adventure. It is important to me that you and your dog are happy with Little Village. If you have any ideas about improving your dog's experience here, please let me know.

I am also overjoyed to welcome Dani to my home, as my new best friend, and to my business as Director of Guest Services. In her official role, Dani is responsible for making guests feel at home, teaching them how to use the dog door, showing them around the enclosure, playing with them and watching out for them - a job she took to and created without me knowing anything about it. Somehow, from the moment she arrived at Little Village Dani understood what was missing and what was needed, and I have no idea how I ever coped without her.

"After having tried several other doggie daycares, I can honestly say that Little Village outshines them all. Not only is Little Village a safe and warm place to leave your “furry child” for the day or boarding, but also provides stress- and cage-free environment where your pet is the one to choose his own activity. Corinne provides genuine loving care to their dog friends. She really gets to know your dog and brings care and loving attention to each dog’s personality and needs. Every time I bring Trigger to Little Village, his tail wags in anticipation. He loves spending time with both his four-legged and two-legged circle of friends. Trigger obviously gets good stimulation and play because by the end of the day, he is exhausted from all the fun and exercise he has had with the Corinne's and other dogs. I know that he is in trusted hands and is loved and cared for the way I expect him to be. Without a doubt Little Village is the best!"
