We brought our dog to Manoir Kanisha when it first opened in 1990. I was worried about him while on vacation so I called Nicole. She reassured me that he was doing very well and she was enhancing his meals with burger and rice! Kanisha is not just a place to board your dog, it’s a five star doggy hotel.

Nicole and her staff are so very knowledgeable – and kind, caring and loving that, since 1990, I haven’t even thought about taking my dogs anywhere else. Sadly, this past week was the last time my little “dare devil” MAGGIE will be vacationing at Kanisha as we have found a new home in Nova Scotia with 2 acres of running room for her. She will miss her family there, as will we but when we come back for visits we’ll be dropping by to say hello. Thank you Nicole and team for all that you do. You have hearts of gold.

We left our small dog Neo at Manoir Kanisha for a weekend and could not be more impressed with the treatment he received. Every imaginably detail is anticipated and attended by Nicole and her caring staff. The facilities are of luxury hotel calibre, and every effort is made to make your pet’s stay a pleasant and calm one. Nicole even took some photos of Neo with my 6-year old daughter so that i could show my dad, Neo’s actual owner. We’re impressed beyond words, and enthusiastically recommend Kanisha to others. Thanks so much!


“Manoir Kanisha is an outstanding facility;

the care given to the animals is superior to any place we’ve seen.  

The owner and staff are really dedicated to high quality animal care and it shows.

 We have been regular clients for 15 years with both cats and dogs.

The animals were lovingly cared for each time.”

What would we have done without Manoir Kanisha!

From our first encounter, 14 years ago, when they helped transport our dear miniature schnauzer, Angel, from Australia to Montreal, to our current project to send our loveable mutt, Bob, back to Australia we have had nothing but the very best care and professional attention from Nicole MacDuff and her staff.

During that time we must have used almost every service that Manoir Kanisha offers. Even when Angel was diagnosed with diabetes Manoir Kanisha’s staff were there to support us with her care.

From an over-nighter to our long visits back to Australia we always knew Angel was in the very best of hands. She had her insulin injections, walks, plays and even her own condo and when we returned she was always happy, healthy and beautifully groomed to greet us.

Now, working with Tim Harris to fill all the very strict Australian Government requirements we are absolutely confident that’s Bob’s relocation will be successful.

We will be heading home first and Bob will be in the care of Manoir Kanisha for 180 days and during that time Tim will ensure that all the required paperwork and vet visits are fulfilled. His decades of experience and knowledge have been invaluable.

Manoir Kanisha has grown over the past 14 years and is just a lovely environment in all seasons, and currently a picture with the geraniums in bloom.

I have, in the past, and will continue to recommend Manoir Kanisha to all pet owners, especially those that travel the world with their precious pets!


“I want to thank you for taking such good care of JAX while I was away. It was a difficult decision to place him for 6 weeks but I had no choice and your regular feedback and occasional pictures helped me feel good about his stay with you. Since we have been home we have had to review the “house rules” but other than that, he is the same lovable goofy pup that I left in your care 6 weeks ago.

I have someone delivering a little thank you basket of “Goodies” for you and your team. We look forward to seeing you all again, probably sooner than I would like as I am away again for 2 weeks soon. Best regards,”



  “I just wanted to thank you for taking such good care of our best friend MIA, while we were away during the holiday. 

She was in great shape and very happy when we picked her up.                              

Your staff seemed to really be in tune with her needs.   

All the best to you all” 



“Dear Nicole:  I wanted to thank you and your staff for Mitsi’s recent stay.  

Although dogs can’t talk, I could tell that she was well treated.

I also want to thank you for her Schnauzer Styling cut and Grooming. 

We have had unpleasant experiences in the past, but my husband and I feel that this was the “Best Schnauzer Cut” she has ever had.

I have already booked her stay for our spring break vacation. Thanks again.”
