Great Urban Pet Escapes Inc. is a full-service boarding and training centre founded by Jayne Nelson.
We love our work and want our clients and guests to enjoy our facility as much as we enjoy running it.
Our main focus is to create an enjoyable and low-stress environment for dogs, where they have plenty of exercise and play time.
We often donate our services to the SPCA and other non-profit societies, to help them train, take care of, and rehabilitate dogs back into the community.
