Products We Love

How did we choose the products to carry in our shop?

At Just Fur Kids Dog Daycare® we truly believe that our dogs are family.  They are our companions, best friends… our fur kids.

Health and safety are the keys to their longevity and happiness.  Proper nutrition gives our fur kids the energy to live fully, and leashes, collars, & tags keep them safe while they are doing so.  Shampoos, protectants, and cleaning spray enrich our fur kids’ lives.  All products carried are unique, of top quality, and from companies who put fur kid welfare as top priority.  Rest assured, every item has been given the full paws up by the Doggy Diplomats of myself and/or Boo.  If we don’t approve, it wouldn’t be fair to expect you to.

 Open Farm™:

This family run business based out of Toronto, Ontario has a simple motto- “do some good”.  Their goal is to offer quality nutritious pet food that is produced naturally, humanely, & responsibly, and with a positive impact on the environment.

To achieve this commitment, Open Farm™ partners only with suppliers who respect farm animal welfare, sustainability, and ethical farming practices.  This is enforced by having independent industry auditors like Ocean Wise™, Seafood Watch™, Global Animal Partnership™, and Humane Farm Animal Care™ certifying all the partners of their supply chain.  Open Farm™ is the first dry pet food supplier in America to be certified humane.  This means the farm animals are free to roam, do not eat in a competitive environment, are not fed animal byproducts, hormones, or antibiotics, and are transported & slaughtered following the strictest standards for humane & ethical treatment.  Finally, by typing in the lot code of any Open Farm™ product into their website page, you can see where every single ingredient of that product came from.  They are the only company in this industry with this kind of 100% transparency.

Open Farm™ is also the first pet food company to offer wet food in a recyclable Tetra Pak™.  This type of packaging is convenient in that it travels well (no can opener necessary), refrigerates well (tin cans shouldn’t go in the fridge), reseals easily (just refold the top), and is completely recyclable.  Their dry food bags are also recyclable- 95% of pet food bags are not.  This is done through a partnership with TerraCycle™, a company that upcycles them to create new products.

Most importantly though, the food is simply good for our fur kids.  There is no meat meal used ever, making all the protein 100% traceable.  All the meat is free of antibiotics and hormones, and all the fruits and vegetables are GMO free.  Every product is grain free- no corn, wheat, soy, or rice, and there are no artificial preservatives, colouring, or flavourings in anything.  Just Fur Kids Dog Daycare® is proud to showcase a line that works this hard to “Do Some Good”.

Drool Pawtisserie®:

Drool Pawtisserie® is also a family venture, but right out of our fair city, Calgary.  Company founder, Jennifer began baking out of a desire to provide her foster fur kids with dietary restrictions, healthy and beneficial snacks that were still yummy.  Her commitment to her fur kids, plus a change in personal circumstances, led to the creation of the business.

Today, Drool Pawtisserie® biscuits can be found in almost two dozen specialty pet businesses throughout Alberta.  Jennifer still hand cuts all the biscuits herself and her fur kids, Diesel and Raina are very vigilant as quality control inspectors.

The thin crsip biscuits are gluten free and made with no preservatives, additives or coloring.  In fact, the gingerbread biscuits with its six ingredients is the most complex recipe out of the five different varieties.  The ingredients are all human grade and the biscuits are tasty enough for even the fur parents!  The bacon and the rosemary beef biscuits are both meaty favourites while the gingerbread and the Parmesan Reggiano ones keep the vegetarian fur kids happy.  The crisp dehydrated banana chips spritzed with coconut oil are popular with all the fur kids.

Just Fur Kids Dog Daycare® carries the biscuits in both the larger 100g bags where they are bone shaped as well as in the 50g bags of half inch squares.  The latter are pawfect for the small fur kids as well as to use as training treats.  Drool Pawtisserie® biscuits are suitable for feline furiends too- especially the catnip ones.   Be sure to look for the special seasonal offerings that arrive for Halloween and Christmas.



Cheddar Dogs®:

Serendipitously, it was Drool Pawtisserie® that introduced us to this family owned dog treats company located right here in our southeast Calgary community.  Cheddar Dogs® is a business born also out of the need for treats geared towards fur pals with special dietary needs and restrictions.

Danielle’s entire selection of creatively shaped and beautifully decorated cookies, treats & cakes are all gluten free and made with human grade, mostly organic, locally sourced ingredients.

Choose from the half dozen vegetarian or meat based varieties of dehydrated cookies, the “bites” for everyday.  Salmon, beef liver or lamb are the meat choices, while apple beet, peanut butter, and the signature cheddar bites satisfy every palate.  Looking for a special treat, or treating that special fur kid?  How about a large carob dipped cheese cookie stuck on the end of a bully stick (aka a Pupsicle)?! Pupperoni slices, Ralphie burgers, and hot diggity dogs are other themed treats that taste as good as they look.

Cheddar Dogs® cakes though are the hit of every fur kid birthday celebration. Shaped cakes of a variety of sizes, flavours, and finishes can be ordered in advance through their website.  The Just Fur Kids Dog Daycare® pack can attest that there is no such thing as leftovers with these cakes.

Finally, Just Fur Kids Dog Daycare® is proud to be a Cheddar Dogs® pickup location for their ever popular Cookie of the Month program.  See in store for further details.


Ez-Clean®:

Created out of need by a gentleman with a farm in central Alberta, Ez-Clean® is a miracle Canadian product.  It is a must for all households, especially those with fur kids and/or children because it eliminates all organically occurring stains and odours with just a spray.  As a bio-enzyme cleaner, it contains billions of live microbes that breakdown organic waste to completely eliminate, not just mask.  The cultures are grown in Quebec and are fully concentrated.  The effectiveness of this living product is only reduced if exposed to hot air or water temperatures for a prolonged period of time.  Ez-Clean® can be used as is in full strength, or diluted down to 1:64 for large and/or outdoor applications.

Organic stains and odours refer to naturally occurring things- so, marks left by meats/fruits/vegetables, plants/grass/dirt, sweat, blood, mold, and urine/feces.  Smells include those from cooking, smoke, mildew, body odour, and animal musk to name a few.  Given what the Ez-Clean® bio-enzymes attack, the household applications are limitless.  Spray it on items that cannot be easily washed, such as curtains, upholstery, mattresses, cushions, backpacks, dog beds/toys, and area rugs.  Use it to pre-treat stains on carpets, clothing, and towels as well as in their actual washings.

Spray Ez-Clean® to remove animal smells in barns, kennels/runs, and vehicles.  It eliminates human sweat odours from sports equipment, jerseys, and footwear.  Finally, it cleans, not just freshens, the air around garbage containers, washrooms, septic tanks, and yards.  As a naturally occurring product, it is safe to use on all surfaces including right on pets, around children, and directly on plants.  It also does not stain fabrics/materials.

Ez-Clean® bio-enzyme cleaner will virtually replace every chemical cleaner and deodorizer currently in your house.  It does not negatively impact the environment, is Canadian owned and manufactured, and value for your money because it is a concentrate.  You’ll want to get the largest size.



Diggin Your Dog™:

One of the best finds we made several years ago was for an alternative for the invaluable item in every fur parent’s pantry- pure pumpkin.  While the canned puree works wonderfully for upset tummies,  usually only a few tablespoons is all that is needed each time, leaving the rest of it to go to waste.

Diggin Your Dog™ is a small company based out of Reno, Nevada.  They were possibly the first and may still be the only company that makes a pure pumpkin supplement.  Containing only pumpkin and apple pectin, this dehydrated powder just needs to be sprinkled on top of your fur kid’s regular food.  At a concentration ratio of 4:1, a teaspoon per feeding is all that is needed for a medium sized dog, and when resealed properly, this 4oz bag will last a long time in the pantry.

Pumpkin is an effective digestive aid for both runny and constipated intestinal tracts.  As well, use it to help with new food transitions.  Diggin Your Dog™ also makes a pumpkin and cranberry supplement.  Cranberries contain an ingredient that aids in urinary tract health.  Both supplements are safe for cats too.


SiliDog®:

SiliDog® is a small start-up company out of Florida belonging to a young college graduate who markets a patented silent pet tag that does not clink or clank when a fur kid moves about and/or scratches. Created out of the need to not hear the late night clinking of his rescue fur kid Bentley’s tags when he moved, rolled over and/or got a drink of water, these tags also have a social message.

For every tag sold, Michael donates a portion of the proceeds to one of four charities– cancer research & support, no kill animal shelters, fire & police service dogs, and emotional support service dogs for people, a personal cause for Michael.

The 100% silicone tags are fully malleable & durable, and both the engraving and colour have lifetime guarantees.  SiliDog® tags come in three shapes and an assortment of colours, including glow in the dark ones.  If you think you’ve seen this pawsome product before, maybe it was when Michael was on Shark Tank™ in the fall of 2017.

Clients purchase a gift card from Just Fur Kids Dog Daycare® for a tag and then use the information on it to email Michael to select the tag they would like as well as indicate what to engrave on its front and back.  The finished tag is then mailed directly to the recipient.  Tags can replace city license tags, rabies tags, identification tags, AND make terrific gifts.



Vital Essentials™:

Vital Essentials™ is a family owned company in Wisconsin that offers a freeze dried line of pet treats consisting of raw single proteins.

By not applying heat to the raw proteins, all the nutrients and flavours are retained for maximum taste and benefit, while simultaneously being preserved for long shelf life without the use of any preservatives.  Vital Essentials™ only uses USDA inspected proteins and no rendered meats or meat by-products.

All the freeze dried treats contain only the one whole protein, nothing else.  They are gluten free and grain free.  A wide assortment of land and sea proteins are available to suit various dietary restrictions and tantalize your fur kid’s palate.  Choose from duck, lamb, beef tripe, beef liver, salmon, or their award winning whole minnows.

Despite being compact in size, these treats are concentrated in scent and flavour from the freeze drying process, which makes them ideal high valued training treats.  The freeze drying also prevents these treats from crumbling for easy portability.

Finally, Just Fur Kids Dog Daycare® carries the freeze dried 6″ bully sticks from the Vital Essentials™ Raw Bar in both singles and in 5packs.  Being freeze dried, these bullysticks don’t smell as much when gnawed on, though they are easier for your fur kid to get through compared to the traditional dehydrated version.  Bullysticks provide pawsome chewing to keep teeth and gums healthy.


Soos Pet Products™:

Soos™ Pets is a Canadian line of natural shampoos and conditioners created in an effort to help an aging family fur kid with skin and coat issues.  The effectiveness and uniqueness of these products come from the fact that they are made with minerals, water, and mud from the Dead Sea.  The twenty six mineral composition in itself is unique, never mind that twelve of the minerals are found exclusively only in this body of water.

The Dead Sea has long been known for its healing and therapeutic properties, and people have historically journeyed from all over the world to submerge in its water and mud to find relief and cure for various ailments.  Not only does the combination of minerals like calcium, sodium, potassium, zinc, and magnesium draw out toxins and improve rheumatic conditions, they also have a calming. soothing effect and lock in moisture to nourish the skin.  Essential oils, vitamins, and various extracts are then added to enhance these curative properties.

The result is products that are professionally concentrated, suitable for humans but PH balanced for pets, and paraben & sulfate free.  All Soos™ Pet products coat hair from root to tip, locking in moisture to deeply hydrate and strengthen follicles.  While there are shampoos and conditioners specifically formulated for sensitive & allergic skin, and those with chronic skin conditions, the entire line is gentle, with natural fragrances, and soothing for most skin types.

Just Fur Kids Dog Daycare® carries two shampoos, three conditioners, and one 2 in 1.  Dilute the 500ml concentrates using a squeeze bottle for easy application to a ratio of 10:1.  Whether your fur kid is groomed professionally or not, he/she will benefit from a Soos™ Pet Products treatment.

Just Fur Kids Dog Daycare® also carries the daily basics for your fur kid.  We have The Original Poop Bags™ poop bags, Novanimal™ probiotics, antiseptic first aid spray by Acceleryn™ and natural insect repellent & moisturizing spray by Eqyss™.
