A Day at the Spaw

Introducing our new 'spaw' package for dogs.  Drop off between 8 and 10 am and pick your tired, sweet smelling dog up between 4:30 and 6:00 pm. Your dog will enjoy a play, a walk, a bath and blow dry (including nail trim). $55.00 (small-medium breeds), Large/giant/double coated breeds $75.00. 


What to Bring

Although it takes us longer to feed each pet individually, we ask that you bring your pet's food along, and we will feed exactly as you do at home.  With this approach we find that your pet's appetite is maintained, and stomach upsets caused by a change of food are lessened.  We would be pleased to administer any oral medications according to your instructions, at no extra charge. 

Your dog must have current DHPP, Rabies and Bordatella vaccinations.  Cats must be current for FVRCP and rabies.    A veterinarian signed certificate or a receipt with vaccines given and expiration date is required when your pet arrives.  You may send them by fax or email prior to arriving, if you prefer. 

Titre test results (rabies and distemper) are also accepted in lieu of vaccinations. 

While at Teacherspet Pet Retreat, your dog will be sleeping on a Great Canadian Pet Cot, because your dog's comfort is important to us.  These cots are comfortable and hygienic, and evenly distribute weight to prevent joint related difficulties.  They cut down on elbow calluses and are beneficial for arthritic and geriatric pets.You may bring your pet's favourite toys or blanket or bed, however we are not responsible for lost or destroyed items.  

Order your dog their very own Great Canadian Pet Cot today!  Various coverings and sizes available. 

If your dog will be walked while with us, please bring their training equipment (head halter or body harness).

We can also provide care for your small pet (rabbit, guinea pig, hamster etc)., or bird.  Prices available upon request.  


About Kennel Cough (Bordatella)

We wish it was called off leash dog park cough or dog training cough, anything but Kennel Cough.  Actually, your dog can pick it up walking on the street and stopping to say hi to another dog.  Kennel cough is not serious, but it is something that happens occasionally when dogs interact. 

The dogs staying at Teacherspet must have current Bordatella vaccinations.  Like a flu shot, a bordatella shot doesn't guarantee that your dog won't get kennel cough.  A dog has to bring the virus in, it isn't manufactured here. 

Every precaution will be taken to ensure that your dog goes home healthy and happy.  But, like sending your child to preschool, they can pick up illnesses from contact with other dogs. 

We believe in the value of off leash play and allowing dogs to socialize and play when they are here.

Make sure that your pet is vaccinated at least 2 weeks before coming in for boarding.
