Country Comfort

Meet Your Professional Pet Care Provider 

 I was born in England where my love affair with animals began. I received on the job training in all aspects of boarding, obedience training, breeding, etc. On coming to Canada, I lived for a while in Ontario where I managed a show kennel; training, handling and showing Afghan Hounds. In later years, I bred, trained and showed Labrador Retrievers. I also have a love of Burmese cats and have bred and showed them as well.
 My lifelong journey in animal care includes an extensive background spanning 30 years in veterinary management where I performed technical and administrative duties. Other past experience includes working with Guide Dogs for the Blind and breeding, showing and training Afghan Hounds, Norwegian Elkhounds and Labrador Retrievers. Also training dogs for hunting and field trials. My professional background includes numerous workshops in all aspects of animal management, nutrition, grooming and certified pet first aid. I look forward to discussing your pets' needs, quirks and unique personality with you.
Sincerely, Carolyn Beard


 Almost seven years ago, on the glowing recommendation of a friend, we left our new 1 1/2 year old black lab, Turner, with Country Comfort Pet Care. We have been grateful clients and raving fans ever since.
 Country Comfort is truly a dog paradise. At least, that's the sense we get every time we drop Turner off to stay. No sooner do we put the car into "park" than Turner is out the door and barking at the gate to be let into the beautiful, large, and fully fenced yard.


 Once inside, Turner lets loose and runs like she never runs at home. Her joy is palpable.
 Country Comfort is aptly named. Turner is very comfortable staying there and we appreciate so much receiving pictures of Turner while we are away. Carolyn always seems to know that point in our vacation when we are missing Turner the most. It gives us great comfort to know that Turner is not missing us at all.
 Carolyn is professional, provides the highest level of care and takes a personal interest in her dog clients. We value Carolyn's knowledge and experience. Her professional training, combined with a genuine concern for her clients' well-being and her willingness to provide customized care have made us very loyal; to the point where we plan our vacations around Carolyn's availability. We won't leave Turner anywhere else.
 Carolyn adds value to every vacation we take because we can truly relax and enjoy ourselves; completely free of guilt and worry. The only concern we have while we are away is the possibility that Turner may not be as excited for us to pick her up as she was to have us drop her off.

 You could not choose a more caring and wonderful place for your dog, than Country Comfort Pet Care. Our mixed breed, Rodger, has been going there regularly for 2 1/2 years and LOVES it. He has been there for daycare and for longer boarding stays and we have no worries, believing that he is having way more fun than we are. Carolyn provides attention to his needs and truly treats him like one of the family.

 Carolyn Beard worked at my Animal Hospital for over 20 years as lead receptionist and office manager. She is a wonderful, caring person and is great with people and animals. She has bred and showed Labrador Retrievers and Burmese cats for many years and so is used to having a houseful of animals. She is very organized and devoted to wonderful pet care. I was very sad to lose a great employee due to her move to the interior.
