At Olds Doggy Stay we are a private home so we typically only take one dog staying with us at a time. However, if there are two small dogs in the same family we could accommodate them if the dogs get along with our Becca - our energic and very happy, four-year-old Cockapoo. We do not accept dogs over 30 pounds.
We have a 3,200-sq.-ft. home and a large, fully-fenced backyard where the dogs can play. We're situated on a quiet crescent on the northwest edge of Olds just past the hospital. Our yard backs onto the town's pathway system, which I use for daily walks with the dog.
Your dog will have free reign in our home; but I can certainly kennel or keep him or her off the bed or furniture, if that is your preference.
Our dog loves to play and has lots of toys, so there will be no end to the amount of fun - chasing, wrestling, fetching - for your dog to enjoy.
All dogs must be spayed or neutered, house trained and be up to date on their vaccinations.
Only non-aggressive dogs will be allowed.
Owners must read and sign a waiver.
Before boarding with us we ask that you bring the dog to our home to meet our Becca to ensure both dogs will be comfortable with each other.
So as not to disrupt eating habits please bring his/her own food and let us know the eating schedule.
Feel free to bring along his/her bed, favourite blanket or kennel (if your pet sleeps in one at night as ours does), as well as a favourite toy and treats, if desired.
We accept dogs age six months and older
Daytime dog sitting:
If you have an emergency, appointment or a situation arises where you need to head out-of-town for several hours and don't want to leave your dog alone, we will provide a dog sitting service as long as meet the above requirements.
Care for your pet in your home:
For pet owners who prefer to have your dog (or cat) cared for in your own home, we can help. We have clients both who require us to let their dog once at mid-day, and others who go away on vacation and we visit the pet 3 to 4 times a day to fee them, play, cuddle and ensure they are let out.
Extras we offer:
We can pick up and drop off your dog if required. (Travel outside of Olds will be a charge of $.50 per kilometre.)
We can do simple grooming such as minor clipping, brushing, nail clipping, brushing teeth and bathing (additional fee applies).
We can also take & pick up your dog from a groomer or vet appointment.
