Boarding

Our entire building has a new cozy, warm, safe, comfortable rubber flooring to ensure your dog’s safety and comfort! We have a large indoor play/training area for your dog’s comfort and exercise when the weather is too inclement for long outdoor playtimes.

Our indoor kennels have an insulated floor measuring 5 feet by 7 feet. Each dog will have their own kennel space unless families who have more than one dog choose to board them together. Privacy panels between the kennels ensure relaxation for your pup.

As we believe it is important for a dog’s pack instinct to have interactive socialization with other pack-mates, we have six common outdoor exercise areas to encourage this vital exercise and playtime including a separate area for older/quieter dogs.

All play areas at SunDog are securely fenced and the property is gated. You can feel confident that your dog’s safety and security is of utmost importance to us. All dogs are supervised during their common play area times; five times per day for a collective minimum of four to five hours per day (weather permitting).

A happy, calm mind in a dog contributes to a beautiful companion indeed! The regular exercise and individual care the dogs receive at Sundog Kennels will help to achieve this. When you come to pick up your dog, he will behave as if he were at a restful retreat himself, if not a little tired from the exercise and playtime he receives.

We suggest that you bring your pet’s favorite blanket and toys to provide a more familiar environment for him/her. These will not be shared with other guests.

We will feed your pet twice per day; morning and evening. Each kennel has free choice fresh water in stainless steel containers.

In the event that any of our guests require emergency medical attention, we use the services of Big Hill Veterinary Clinic in Cochrane. We feel confident in the excellent care they provide their patients. We reserve the right to evaluate any emergency and will call on a veterinarian if we feel it is necessary for your dog’s health. All medical and transport expenses are incurred by the dog’s owner.

IMPORTANT: We require all dogs be vaccinated against Parvovirus, Rabies, Distemper and Bordetella (Canine Cough). Vaccinations MUST be given a MINIMUM of seven (7) days PRIOR TO BOARDING.
Please attach a copy of your dog’s current vaccination records to this application and bring it with you when you bring your dog to be boarded or to the “Meet and Greet” beforehand. We do accept titre records in lieu of vaccination records. These MUST BE updated at a minimum of every three years. Ask your vet for more information.

We DO NOT accept females in estrous season.
We DO NOT accept aggressive dogs or dogs that have not been socialized with other dogs.

Owners are requested to view the facility by appointment during our “Hours of Operation”, with their dog in advance of boarding. Please bring the completed application form (Download application - pdf format 132 kb) to the "Meet and Greet”, as well as proof of current vaccinations.

SunDog Kennels reserves the right to refuse any dog for boarding.
