To our valued clients,
As you may know, due to the situation surrounding COVID-19 our boarding and daycare services have been temporarily closed since March 21st. Unfortunately, at this time we have no plans to reopen our daycare and boarding facilities for the next several weeks. The health and safety of our community, team, and furry friends are our priority. Thank you for your support and patience as we navigate these uncertain times.

Why should I board my dog at PetWorks?

We take our responsibility for the care and security of your ‘best friend’ seriously 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 playmates. We value a balance between play and rest; we have a Pet Care Attendant to dog ratio of 1:6, and our guests participate in playgroups 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.

What are the admission requirements?

PetWorks is pleased to welcome dogs that are 17 weeks or older, and who have the necessary up-to-date vaccines and parasite control, we also require that your pet be spayed or neutered if 6 months of age or older. For your pet’s safety, a certificate of the following vaccinations is required for admission:

  • DA2CPV/DA2PP (distemper) – every 3 years for adults; up to date on booster for puppies
  • Bordetella (kennel cough) – yearly; up to date on booster for puppies
  • Prescription Flea and Parasite Control – monthly

*If your pet is receiving vaccines for the first time or 30+ days after vaccine due date, there may be a waiting period before the required for full vaccine protection. If you have questions regarding your pet’s vaccine status or risk, contact your veterinarian or feel free to speak to one of our trained team members in the Resort Please provide a vaccine certificate at least 48 hours before arrival. *Not required for PetFocus Veterinary Hospital Clients.

How much is dog boarding?

We offer an array of service options for your consideration, our canine boarding facility offers large, comfortable, climate-controlled surroundings for up to 30 guests in a supervised environment. If you need an overnight home-away-from-home, we have roomy well-lit runs. Some can be converted to king-size if your dog wants to stay with a friend or sibling or just needs a lot of room. If you choose, your pet may play in the daycare or go for off-property walks. For a personalize accommodation quote, please feel free to contact us at resort@petworksvet.ca or 902-435-2444 ext. 2.

Is there a frequent visitor discount?

Every 10th night of boarding, or 10th day of daycare, is complimentary. We file a 10-day card for each pet and when you reach the 10th night of boarding or 10th day of daycare, the 10th day (or night) is on us!
