Family-style Small Dog Boarding

We have a beautiful 1/4 acre fully-fenced backyard in the heart of Oshawa, covered in mature trees and bushes, for lots of shade and room to run and play leash-free!

Family-style Small Dog Boarding

We are located just north of Bloor and Simcoe in Oshawa, with easy access to HWY 401.

Family-style Small Dog Boarding

We have regular feeding and treat times, with access to plenty of water to drink whenever they need. We go out to play in our big backyard every couple of hours, or as needed.

Family-style Small Dog Boarding

You provide your dog's food (yes, we can do Raw!) and leash, and we provide the cuddles, belly rubs, games of fetch and FUN!!

Family-style Small Dog Boarding

At PupVacay, your dog enjoys all the benefits of a loving home, supervised 24/7, never left alone - not even to sleep. We take in a maximum of four dogs at a time. Yes, we take puppies!

Six Peaceful Pups at PupVacay

Sometimes there is lots of barking at PupVacay, but when the dogs aren't outside playing, they are usually napping in their favourite spot.

Kingston, another boarder, is a 4 month old Shih-poo who likes to nap on the coffee table. He is normally a bundle of energy, but even puppies need their downtime.

Lia, a regular boarder, is a bichon too, who prefers the comfort of her brother Luigi's kennel when she takes her nap.

Luigi! You are in my spot! LOL

Luigi is Lia's brother dog, and also a regular boarder.

Since his sister took his cozy kennel spot, he decided to take my spot on the couch, in front of my laptop!
