General Boarding Information


  • Upon admission for services, your signed contract acknowledges your awareness and acceptance of our policies.
  • All accommodations are available for those who wish their family’s pets (of the same species) to stay together (please see the A la Carte menu for nightly rates for cats and dogs).
  • Reserve well in advance. Holiday and summer boarding is very busy and does fill up quickly.
  • We require a 24-hour notification for cancellations of any of our services. Exceptions and charges are at our discretion.
  • We are full during weekends and holiday seasons, so it’s best to plan your pet’s stay when making your vacation plans.
  • The first time you board, you will be asked to provide your contact information and a complete profile for your pet. For each consequent visit, you will be asked to provide updates about your pet’s health, arrival and departure dates and contact information for the time you’ll be away.
  • If you’ve never boarded your pet before and your first trip will be a lengthy one, we recommend you consider booking your pet for a one-night stay as early as possible, or book a playdate so they can experience our facility and caregivers.
  • We accept cash, cheques and debit cards.
  • Our prices, policies, services and hours are non-negotiable and subject to change without notice.



  • Health and safety is our number one priority. All pets must have a current Pet Profile on file with us.
  • Pets must be in good health and not exposed to any contagious or communicable illness within a 30-day period prior to check in (eg. lice, fleas, kennel cough).
  • We accept unspayed/unneutered cats and dogs. If needed they will be separated from other pets and receive special one on one playtime.
  • Guests must have a sociable temperament so that all caregivers can properly care for them. Allowances may be made for specific temperament issues, but pets cannot pose a danger to our caregivers. To give proper care/attention, they have to be separated from other dogs and therefore require special playtime.
