About Adele

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi and welcome to Downtown Happy - a home away from home for your furry family members. We have been dog parents for the past 16 years and would love to have small dogs hang around with our Poppy, a super gentle and friendly toy poodle.

We live in a condo unit with a large balcony and we have Pet Pasture (real grass) on the balcony. Each Vacay day includes at least 1 walk (60 minutes or longer) in the neighbourhood/on the seawall/in Stanley Park plus plenty of playtime at home. We are also able to provide 24x7 supervision (Poppy's dad works from home) and transportation to a vet in case of an emergency.

Please note we are only able to take in small breed adult dogs (adult dog weighing less then 20lbs). We are not able to care for puppies (less then 1 year old).

Service Costs:
Overnight boarding is $30.00 per 24 hour period.
Daycare is $20.00 for up to 10 hours, $25.00 for more than 10 hours.

Example of a weekend charge: If drop off is Friday morning at 9:00 am & pickup is Sunday 5:00 pm, the cost would be $80.00 (2 overnights + 1 daycare).

Overnight Dog Boarding:

$30 per 24 hour period per dog. We only take in one dog at a time and he/she will be treated like our own and be part of the family. There is almost always someone home to look after your dog.

Please note a meet & greet is required before a reservation can be accepted to make sure everyone will be happy with the arrangement, including our little Poppy, who is super gentle and friendly.

For the comfort and safety of everyone, we limit the size of dogs we board to about 20 pounds or less and they must be friendly with people & other dogs.

Doggy Daycare:

$20 for up to 10 hours. This is a great option when you need to leave your dog for a long day or just to get them some social/vacation time. Pick up/drop off can be arranged for an additional cost based on location.

For both overnight boarding and daycare, the drop off and pick up time is from 8:00am to 8:00pm. We will try our best to accommodate special situations but would appreciate your respect of this limit.

We require that all dogs that come to stay are fully vaccinated and free of all external parasites such as fleas.

Please bring food, bed, harness, leash, toys, coat, medications and anything that will make your dog feel comfortable during their stay.

Adele and her husband were wonderful and so accommodating! My dog stayed only one night and I received plenty of picture and video updates. We had a meet and greet prior to his stay and I've never met anyone that made me feel so at ease with Marco! I felt like I didn't have to worry one bit. I highly recommend and will definitely use them again in the future!!! Thank you!!
We are so happy to have found Adele, Adam and Poppy. Our wiener dog stayed with them for a week over Christmas 2016 and our meticulous parenting styles were a good match. We requested a meet-and-greet in their home a couple of months in advance and felt comfortable right away. They respected all of our fussy rules, including brushing our dog's teeth daily, keeping her on leash, using a car carrier, crate time, etc. Adele sent us daily photo and video updates, which we really appreciated. We also really like the fact that they have their own little dog that our dog could play with. I cannot say enough good things about Adele, Adam and Poppy. They are meticulous and generous hosts and we look forward to seeing them again! :)
We felt immediately comfortable leaving Bizou with Adele and Adam after we had our Meet-n-greet. They cared for him for a few days and we appreciated the photos/videos they posted. I'll definitely be booking with Adele again!
I'm very happy that Adele took care of my dog. She did a great job and kept me updated with pictures everyday. For sure my buddy will stay with her again:)
Adele was a great host! She kept us updated with great pictures and videos of Olo. He seemed to spent a lot of time in dog parks which is awesome and she even gave him showers when necessary. She replied to all of our messages promptly and was able to accommodate for pick up and drop off times. We would definitely recommend her!!
