If you are out for the night, or taking a one-month vacation, your dog can find a comfortable home-away-from-home in which to kick back and relax.   Our home is well suited for dogs up to 55 lbs.  We are located on a quiet street in the east of Ottawa (Orleans) and sport a fair-sized yard, comfy dog beds and crates, toys and even a cuddle couch. Your dog will join my family for tv watching, endless play in the back yard, and walks around the neighbourhood. If your dog likes the company of other dogs or a good romp with a pal, Colette can pair up with her dog-trainer friends to offer play and dog interactions in select enclosed, supervised locations. We do assess all dogs to ensure that they will enjoy such events.

Please fill in the boarding contract, via the link at the bottom-right of this page.     Once your form has been submitted, contact me (via text or phone call to 613-323-0885) to set up your pre visit.  

A copy of current vaccines must be provided at the pre-visit.

The contract allows you to submit important information regarding your dog's food, sleeping and behavioural habits, medications (if any), exercise routine as well as emergency and vet information.

The previsit allows you and your dog to meet me and my family, see how and where your dog will be staying, visit our outdoor area and to get a sniff of all the blankets and doggy smells (that last one is for the dogs only, lol).  This has proven to be a great way to ease the stress of separation when the dogs are later dropped off on the designated date.

  • Copy of most recent vaccines (@ pre visit)
  • Your dog's food and medication (if any)
  • Favourite treats/Teeth-care treats (Greenies, etc.)
