Do you accept un-altered dogs for boarding?

Yes, though it is mandatory they reside in a private suite and do not interact with other guests if they are over the age of 7 months. Not to worry, un-altered Dogs still receive the same amount of exercise, activity, and outside time as all other guests, just one-on-one with a handler!


Yes we do! But for the safety of your Dog, as well as our current guests, un-altered dogs above the age of 7 months are not permitted to join the social area with the other social guests, and must reside in a private suite. This is to prevent any altercations due to hormonal imbalances. Boarding for un-altered dogs includes the same amount of outdoor time and activities as all of our other guests, just one-on-one with a handler!

My dog is not social with other dogs, can you accommodate?

Yes! We accommodate to unsocial Dogs by providing private suites for them to rest in unbothered while inside. Not to worry, unsocial Dogs still receive the same amount of exercise, activity, and outside time as all other guests, just one-on-one with a handler!

Do I bring my own food?

Yes it is required you provide your own dog food for your Dog to eat while they board with us to avoid any gastrointestinal issues.


Do you accommodate to raw meals?

Yes! We have dog specific freezers and fridges to ensure your Dogs raw food is maintained and served just how they like it.

If my dog has medication, will you administer it? Is there an extra cost?

Yes we can! Just provide accurate and detailed dosage and administration instructions, as well as all necessary tools needed to administer (i.e. pill pockets, syringes, cheese, etc.). There is no extra charge for medication administration.

What should I bring for my dog’s stay?

1) Updated vaccination information if applicable.
2) A sufficient amount of food for their stay including any additives and/or supplements.
3) Any medications along with instructions and necessary tools and/or treats to administer them (i.e. pill pockets, syringes, etc.).
4) Their leash and a proper fitting collar.



How far in advance should I book my reservation?

We always suggest as much notice as possible to ensure your spot, as we never over lodge. Holidays and Long Weekends can book up as early as 1 month in advance.



What do I need to know for booking over the holidays?

Book as early as possible! We can book up as early as 1 month in advance, so we suggest booking in advance to ensure your spot as we never over lodge. Cancellations for Peak Season reservations can be made as late as 48hrs in advance. There is a Holiday surcharge of $4.00 per dog, per night for boarding. Our office generally closes 1 hour early on statutory Holidays, but always call and check!

Does my dog get to go outside? How often?

Of course! we spend as much time outside in our fenced in yard as possible. Weather depending, we constantly rotate all of our guests into our yard for 10-30 minute play sessions at a time. Depending on how many guests we have staying at the facility, your Dog goes outside about every 2 hours whether they reside in our social Living Room or a Private Suite.

Play Safe Policy

Due to our living room setting please keep in mind not all dogs that are social do well unless they have experience sharing their home with other dogs. All of our staff are constantly supervising the social interactions between our guests, trained to detect inappropriate behaviour and unbalanced play. The safety and comfort of your dogs is our first priority. Whether you are a new or reoccurring guest your dog will be monitored closely at all times as they tend to often change as they age and experience new things. Some behaviours we exceptionally discourage are excessive barking, mounting (humping), toy/food possession/guarding, rough play, and bullying. We will attempt to redirect undesirable actions with the use of tools such as dog backpacks, and leash guidance. If unsuccessful we will always take caution and remove the offending dog from our social area, informing the owner and corresponding a proactive plan to proceed forward. It is your responsibility as the owner to notify Sticks n Bones of any altercations or incidents that occur outside of our facility that could potentially regress your dogs social skills or cause them to become reactive, compromising their interactions with other social guests.

Can I call to check in on my Dog(s)?

Absolutely! You are more than welcome to call anytime during office hours to check in on your pups and see how they are doing. A staff member will gladly answer any questions you may have regarding their stay or day at daycare.

Do you require Vaccinations?

Yes we do require all dogs to be up to date with their Vaccinations as it is a requirement for all guests, this is not only to ensure the safety of your pup but the safety of others as well.
