Boarding Facilities 

                                          

 

   Our Stylish, warm and inviting Boarding Facility is situated on 3.5 beautiful acres only 10 minutes east of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We are situated within the City limits of Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada, making us the closest Kennel ( only 2 Km. from downtown)

We are proud to be regarded as the best Kennel in the Edmonton area that specializes in Small, Medium and Large dogs. We are a relatively small kennel, boarding up to 30  dogs maximum at any one time, allowing us to give your special pet individual care and attention. We also do grooming on site.

                                                                          

Our Boarding Facility is heated and air conditioned year round, giving  a comfortable climate controlled environment for all. We have 30  indoor runs, (not cages), with 30   adjoining outdoor runs for exercise and relief. The indoor runs are 4 feet wide by 6 feet long, and, the outdoor runs are 4 feet wide by 15 feet long, and are covered to protect your pets from the elements. Out in front of our kennel is our  "Doggy Playground Park ", where your pet can enjoy off leash time at his/her leisure.

 

                                                                                             

 

    All dogs are walked individually throughout the day. Food must be supplied by the owner.  The Kennel has piped in music for your pets enjoyment throughout the day, giving them the feeling of a home environment.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT KENNEL COUGH

 

Our Policies

  Valid vaccination certificate required at Check - in.

  All boarding must be paid in full at time of check in . 

  All boarding reservations are to be guaranteed and non-refundable during the peak holiday seasons. If you return early, no refund or credit will be given.  If you do not show up for your reservation, your boarding charges must be paid in full before we will accept your pet again.

  No pets shall be admitted or released to anyone but family members, unless pre-authorized with us, signed and dated on the boarding contract.

  Pets must be on leash at all times.

  Kennel cough vaccine  ( Intra-Trac Nasal Bordatella) is not mandatory at our kennel, however, if you plan on getting this vaccine for your dog, it must be given at least 10 days before boarding. If you get this vaccine administered less than the 10 days before boarding, we will not accept your dog!

 

So you think Boarding is for you!.....What you should Know!

   Start boarding your pet at an early age. If you wait until they are 7 years of age and up, they usually have a difficult time adjusting . If a dog is 7 years or older, and boarding for the first time, we suggest trying it out for a weekend, and in that way we can see whether he/she will adjust to a longer term. Dogs older than 8 years of age, and never boarded should consider a home sitting service, they just do not adjust well to boarding.  We do offer a free day trial, where the owner brings the pet in the morning and pick up in the afternoon. During this time we can monitor you pet, and determine whether he/she is suitable for boarding.
   When you decide that boarding is for you, get out and look at all the kennels. Only you can decide which kennel is right for you.
   Once you've decided on a kennel, the day that you check in, make sure you have your dog on a leash. Most dogs do not like to be picked up by strangers on the first visit, and there are usually other dogs going in and out, so for piece of mind, leash your dog.
   Find out from the kennel what you should bring, some kennels will want you to bring your own food, bedding, treats, and others will tell you to bring nothing. We encourage people to bring bedding, food,  treats, toys, leashes, collars, and anything that will make their pets stay more enjoyable.
   On the day of check-in, bring your most recent vaccination certificate, because you will be asked for it.
When checking in your pet, try not to make your pet feel like he/she's being left behind, accompanied with a lot of tears, and guilt, because your dog can sense your feelings, and will think there is something wrong. He/she will become frightened and fearful, thinking you are abandoning him/her, and will have a difficult adjustment period for the first day or two. The proper thing to do is to reassure your pet that everything is all right, with a pat on the head, and tell him/her that you will be back soon.
   Give the Kennel Operator as much information as possible about your pet, along with past health problems and any medication that he/she might be on.
   Check your Kennels policies and hours. These should be respected if you wish to continue a good relationship.
