Why should I board my dog at PetWorks?


We take our responsibility for the care and security of your ‘best friend’ seriously. Many of our Pet Attendants are certified in St. John’s Ambulance Pet First Aid and our facility is equipped with a third-party alarm system. We are co-located with a veterinary hospital and so medical staff are available for any situation that arises, right away during hospital hours. This is a unique feature of our boarding facilities. We introduce all dogs before allowing off-leash play. This allows our Pet Care Attendants to assess your dog’s comfort level, and ensure a good fit between playmate. We value a balance between play and rest; we have a Pet Care Attendant to dog ratio of 1:8, and our guests participate in play groups throughout the day followed by rest periods in their run. This means our Pet Care Attendants can cater to each guest’s individual characteristics (very high energy, shy, seniors, etc.), ensuring the best possible experience for your pet.
