Welcome to Fido's Place
Where your furry best friend comes for the fun, and leaves with their foundational skills, traits and behaviours elevated.
Fido’s Place started from CindyAnn Boehm’s lifelong dream of owning a facility that dogs were able to come during the day and not only obtain exercise and freedom from the kennel but where they would have the opportunity to socialize with other dogs and experience an environment specifically designed for them to thrive in.
“I was raised in a kennel. My family raised show dogs, and I started training and showing dogs at a very early age.”
CindyAnn Boehm's love for dogs has never left her. For years, she was a volunteer and board member for the Weyburn Humane Society and has trained her own dog, Harriet, to become a registered therapy dog.
In 2017, her love of dogs got her thinking about how she could make her passion a career. CindyAnn started researching best practices for doggy daycares in North America, with plans to open her own. “I spent countless hours learning how to create a safe and fun environment for dogs to socialize and exercise,” she says. “I also took every available course at the time.”
She has two pet first aid certifications and has completed an advanced course in K9 body language, as well as animal behaviour and training courses from Spirit Dog Training, K9 Turbo Training, Dog Gurus, Brandon McMillan and The Dog Handler Academy, as well as Dog Handler 101, 201 & 301.
She encourages her team to continue their education because as she says, "You can never know everything.”
CindyAnn is a current member of the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC), the International Association of Animal Behaviour Consultants (IAABC) and the International Boarding & Pet Services Association (IBPSA).
