Dog Boarding Vancouver | Kennel-Free & In-House Pet Sitting

Dogtastically Happy Guarantee

Home Away From Home

Why entrust your furry family member to anyone but a loving professional?

Our carefully vetted team of professionals will ensure your pet’s regular routine of walks, meals, and any medications is maintained—along with plenty of snuggles. Because we want your pet to feel like one of the family, just like at home.

Our Personalized Approach

We know that every dog has their own special quirks and unique needs. A stay with Release the Hounds begins with an online application process that allows us to get to know your pet, and how to best care for them while you are away. More importantly, it helps us to set them up with the best matched team member to care for your pup.

Our Boarding and Sitting Team

As part of our pledge to safety first, our team is bonded, licensed, and insured through the Canadian Northern Shield (CNS) as well as dog safe certified through Walks ‘N’ Wags Pet Safe First Aid certified.

We’ve developed DogForceU with Annika McDade, one of Canada’s foremost trainers. A progressive dog walking certification and training program, DogForceU is next-level learning that provides our team with the best education in the field.

Reservation Guarantee

We recognize your dog needs to be well-cared for while you’re away, no matter what. In the event that your selected team member is unavailable, we’ll set you up with another sitter, guaranteed!

Different Types of Care

Boarding – At Our House

Your dog will be welcomed into the home of one of our experienced dog care professionals to board while you’re away. We only take a limited number of dogs at one time to ensure each receives the unique attention and love that they deserve.

Following a Routine

We understand routine is paramount to your dog’s sense of security and well-being. While with us, we’ll ensure their regular routine includes:

  • Carefully following all feeding instructions with special attention to diet requirements, allergies, and treat specifications.
  • Medications will be administered as required.

Requirements for Your Dog During Boarding

In order to keep dog boarding experiences safe and fun for all dogs, we ask that your dog meet the following requirements:

  • Up-to-date vaccinations. See our vaccination policy.
  • Male dogs over seven months of age who have not been neutered and females in heat have limited options. Please contact us.
  • A completed application and service agreement that includes information about allergies, diet requirements, habits, and vet contact details.
  • To ensure the safety of the other dogs and our team, Release the Hounds cannot take dogs with aggression issues for boarding. Pet sitting is available for dogs with behavioural limitations.
