We are a family of 4 who loves dogs. All breeds - there is no bias. My daughter loves loves loves loves loves dogs. We think this is a great opportunity for us, as parents to support and encourage her deep love for animals. Who knows...maybe in 5-6 years, she will be managing DogVacay for herself. It would be wonderful!!
We welcome all sizes of dogs, but we ask that as our family is new to this, large dogs need to be mild tempered and good with children. We will not be able to care for dogs that have aggression towards children.
Please be aware that we are two working parents so, on weekdays; your dog may be unsupervised in our home for 7-9hrs.
I, the Mom, am actually quite allergic to dogs - hence why we have not permanently added a pup to our family. We can board most dog breeds during Fall and Winter as there is less hair shedding, but during Spring and early Summer, there are some breeds we can't board because my allergies go into full crazy mode from the winter coat shed.
We love Meet and Greets as my allergies will generally react within 1-2hrs of being around a dog.
We can board up to 2 dogs but our preference for boarding 2 dogs is only when they are two dogs who already live together.
We live in a small 3 level split home. Doggies stay on the main floor where the kitchen/dining and living room is - laminate wood flooring. We also have a back yard where the dog can hang out but it's currently not fully fenced off so doggies would not be left unattended in the backyard.
We are 10min walking distance to DeerLake Park and a quick 10min drive to Burnaby Lake or Central Park. We are walking/hiking family so this would be an outing that we would love to take your dog on if they are up for it.
We look forward to meeting your furball and taking care of him/her/them!
