You don’t want your dog in a kennel and neither do we.
Petite Paws In-Home Boarding offers a fun filled, un-kennel option the next time you travel and can’t bring Rover.
ABOUT IN HOME BOARDING
We offer a small, personalized, pet boarding service and take a maximum of 3 dogs at one time. Our furry friends spend the day playing with their friends and come home at night for relaxation, couch and cuddle time! On weekends when our Playcare facility is closed we incorporate fun filled walks and adventures to ensure everyone is happy and well exercised.
Our sleepovers are the best vacation your dog can ever have! Your pup is part of your extended family and are treated as our family while you are away. As pet owners, we completely understand the importance of ensuring your pet is cared for in a safe and loving home and offer the best in hospitality for every extended pet stay. PPP offers a warm, caring environment so that you have peace of mind no matter where you go.
You are kept updated: Check your worries at the door. We send you complimentary pictures and/or video updates of your pets via text, so that you are assured that your pet is healthy and happy while you’re away.
To Book Boarding
We are frequently fully booked for boarding and suggest you call to book well in advance especially during peak periods such as summer and holidays.
For our new guest dogs our process is to have your dog(s) in for an initial Meet and Greet session. This enables you to view our facility and allows us to introduce ourselves to you and your dog. Once the puppy parent leaves we will observe your dog in a daycare setting to determine if they will be at ease and comfortable while you are away.
If everyone is happy, we will book your dog in for a couple of daycare sessions prior to making any bookings for boarding to ensure your dog is a good fit for Petite Paws and so your dog learns the ropes and gains familiarity with us and the environment. These sessions may be either full or half days dependent on your pups personality. We do not charge for the assessment appointment but we do charge for the subsequent daycare bookings.
Our Meet and Greet appointments are available at either 730 am or 945 am on Mondays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. Please contact us with boarding dates, type of dog, age, which day of the week and time option works best for you and of course any additional questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you and your best friend.
Please call or email to book a free boarding assessment. 778.772.4489
HOME-STYLE BOARDING Q&A
Your favorite pooch will stay with one of our staff. It’s a home environment—with a couple of extra canine friends.
What’s the deal?
The dogs aren’t crated—unless that’s what you’d prefer and it’s the practice at home, in which case we’ll use yours.
How many dogs will my dog be staying with?
A maximum of three.
What sort of dogs will my dog be staying with?
We meet every dog before we agree to board one. We don’t accept aggressive dogs or large breed dogs. As much as possible, we balance the personality and energy levels.
What will my dog eat?
You provide your pups food and if you choose, your dog’s favorite toys or bedding.
How do I book?
If we haven’t already met your dog, we’ll schedule a free 2 hour appointment.. This helps us assess if your pet is non-aggressive and that his/her personality, needs, and energy level fit with our daycare guests to assure the very best stay possible.

*All Peak Season reservations require a 25% deposit. This is non-refundable if we are unable to book in another dog for your cancelled dates. If you cancel your reservation within 7 days of your pup’s arrival date during Christmas, we will charge 50% rather than 25%.

Discounts offered for multiple dogs from the same family.
We take a limited number of dogs, and when we reach the limit and the spots are full we are unable to take any further booking requests. At certain times of the year, such as Christmas, New Year, March Break, and all long weekends a Seasonal surcharge* applies and we often reach our limit well in advance. Since we turn away booking requests once we reach our limit, if you cancel last minute we have lost business and other pups have missed out on their Petite Paws vacation experience.
We understand that there are always circumstances that can change and respect that sometimes well made plans don’t always work out. Our cancellation rates are as follows:
If you cancel a reservation more than 7 days in advance of your dog’s intended arrival, there is no charge.
If you cancel a reservation less than 48 hours in advance, we charge a cancellation fee of 25%.
If you cancel a reservation on the day of intended arrival we charge a 50% cancellation fee.
If you don’t cancel at all and your dog doesn’t come in, we charge the full amount of your dog’s intended stay.
*Seasonal and Holiday Surcharge $10 per night
