I write this with a heavy heart…

Due to unforeseen circumstances in my life, the farm has been sold.
This means that COUNTRY PET RESORT is closing permanently on September 11, 2018.

I would like to thank all of my loyal customers; I couldn’t have done it without you.

You and your pups will all be greatly missed.

Please keep in touch,
Linda Martinig

Just saw your post about the farm being sold! Congrats and hugs. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything over the past 12 years. You have been such a big part of every special part of our lives supporting by taking amazing care of our dogs…from honeymoon to three babies…friendship forever! We consider you part of our family Linda…always!

So sorry to hear of the closing of Country Pet Resort-was an awesome place and Sadie loved it and you-but life changes and we all need to do what is best for ourselves. Your pet resort will be missed. 🙁

So happy to have had you to look after Stitchie during his lifetime. You and Luc were awesome with him and his quirks. Best of luck in your new endeavours and keep in touch, please. Anxious to see the new little ones


So sad to hear this news. We always felt confident leaving our dogs – first Kesha and now Kermit – in your care over the last …15 years?! They loved staying there. Thanks so much for the great services over the years. We wish you all the best! Jen and Wayne

Dearest Linda and April,
Please know that over the 16 years we brought Emma and then Bella to your Resort, we always could tell the “girls” liked driving up the long lane way to your place. With tails wagging and necks stretched out the car windows. They would know that more Fun was to be had!!! Thank you ? again fornallbuour care and compassion and wishing you the very best in your next adventure!! Come to the Island for a visit!!

You always took great care of Mikkee especially after her unexpected date with the skunk. Congratulations on your sale even though this will be a huge loss to the pet care industry. I know it’s bitter sweat but as the say “on to the next adventure”.

We are saddened to learn that you are closing Country Pet Resort. Zoey loved her stays with you. Stay in touch please. Enjoy retirement!
All the very best,
Linda and Ross

Thanks so much for everything the last 6 years. SAHARA always loved coming and it was always a blessing to me to be able to leave her while I was away and know she was in the best of hands. Good luck and take care

Linda I was sorry to hear you have sold the Pet Resort. Thank you for your care of Sam and Pepper over the last number of years. I was happy to know they were safe with you and well cared for when I was away. I also enjoyed our chats about your daughters work and your other activities. I wish you all the best as your future unfolds. liz

Country Pet is the gold standard boarding facilities. The facilities are superb but the principal reason Country Pet outperforms other kennels is Linda. She has deep knowledge and understanding of dogs, of how they interact, adapt and behave. Her knowledge extends to canine physiology, something I learned the first time Linda and I chatted. Prior to discovering Country Pet I had used other boarding services. All were well run. But, when I dropped off my dogs and drove away, there was always a 1% worry factor. Things were different at Country Pet. I was always worry free knowing my “pack” was in Linda’s care. That speaks volumes about Country Pet and about Linda. Thank you for all you’ve done for myself, Travis, Tannen and Sierra, Linda. Be well and safe. If you ever open another kennel, PLEASE let me know immediately. I will be your customer for life.

So sorry to hear that Country Pet Resort is closing, Linda. Jambo loved his visits there over the past 10 years. He would begin to get excited as we drove up the road and wag his tail enthusiastically when he saw you or Luc. It was a great comfort for us to know he was well and compassionately taken care of. Thank-you for all your care! Please let us know if you ever open another kennel. Best of luck in your move and the next phase of your life!

Thank you so much for all your dedication. We have been bringing Dali to the country pet resort since she was a pup, almost 8 years now. Your passion for animals is commendable. We have been put in difficult situations with travel and you have always been so understanding. Dali is always full of smiles when we pick her up, most recently this afternoon. We know she enjoys her time while we are away. We will miss you and your service but wish you the best. The Holmes Family


I am so sorry the Country Pet Resort is being closed!

I echo the many customers above when they say they leave their pet in your care and drive away worry-free. You have always taken great care of Reilly (my touchy, but lovable, Cocker Spaniel), never giving up on him and always giving him the best of care. It was worth the drive from Ottawa.

Please let me know if you ever decide to open another kennel.

I wish you the best as you move on to a new phase in your life.
