Pricing

The fee for boarding care in my home is $1 an hour. You provide food and any other necessary supplies such as bedding, grooming tools, food dishes, etc.

For exclusive boarding (your dog only), if my boarding schedule allows, I charge $50 a day. You provide food and any other necessary supplies such as bedding, grooming tools, food dishes, etc. Normally, in a non-exclusive situation there may be up to six small or four large dogs staying in my home on any given day. During peak boarding seasons (July/August, Spring Break and the Christmas Holidays) I may take up to seven boarders.

As often as I am able, I like to offer to either pick up or drop off your pet free of charge if you live within 40 KM of my place. If you live in another area, please ask about rates for pick up and delivery service.

Boarding fees are calculated on a 24-hour basis; any boarding in excess of a 24-hour period will be billed at $1 an hour per pet. Your 24-hour period begins when your pet(s) arrives at my home or at the time of pick-up. Normal hours for pick-up or drop-off are 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM, however, I will always do my best to work around your schedule regardless of the hour. My fee schedule is geared for long term boarding. I do not normally provide day care service.

Services include:

  • Day boarding is only available in my home as preparation for a subsequent longer boarding stay. If space is available my clients sometimes like to start with a partial day and then an overnight stay before they board their pet for a longer period of time.
  • During long term 24-hour boarding in my home dogs have monitored access to the outdoors in my fenced yard at least every few hours.
  • At your request I will send email reports to you while you are away to let you know how your pet is doing.
  • Regular on-leash walks, weather permitting
