Ottawa Dog Boarding - Kennel-free Dog Sitting at Bone Voyage

***Please check with friends and family before making a booking request***

We are a network of care providers, not just one home! Have you ever had a dog sitter cancel on you at the last minute and leave you scrambling for dog care so you can still go on vacation? We work as a team, so there is always a backup plan and you will not be stranded looking for alternate care the night before your holiday. Does your dog prefer the company of people over large groups of dogs? We offer dog care in a family home with either no other dogs, or small numbers of well-matched dogs, where someone is home most of the time.

Our guest homes offer you and your dog a variety of different home care options. With a network of care providers all around the city, we are bound to have the perfect home for your dog! We have care providers in many parts of Ottawa.  Some families have pets of their own and some do not.  You may request to have your dog be the only guest in a home where there are no resident dogs.

What's different about us? Our care providers are not also dog-walkers/pet sitters! They are not out all day walking other clients' dogs, or checking on cats - they are only looking after and walking the dogs in their home. All our families have someone home most of the time - your dog will not be alone all day while the care provider is at work or looking after other pets.

You and your dog always get to meet the potential care providers and you don't pay a deposit until you have met a care giver you are happy with. We are not an online service; Bone Voyage Inc.  is owned and operated by Sandy, an Ottawa dog lover, care giver and owner. Sandy knows all the care providers personally and will ensure the best match for your pet.

Our reasonable rates include everything - there are no extra charges for walks, playtime, trips to the park or basic medication - that's all part of the package! (We do charge for complicated medications, medical care, diapers, puppies).

We offer discounts for long stays (over 2 weeks) and frequent travelers and we can offer VERY flexible drop off/pick up times. Any time that is convenient for both you and the care provider is fine! We may even have a care provider in your neighbourhood, making your dog care arrangements even simpler for you!

We accept bookings for any period of time from one night to three months or more, but we do have a minimum 2 night stay for new clients AND on all long weekends. We can accommodate unusual requests such as airport pick-ups, dog care when you're selling/moving homes, or for out-of-towners attending a wedding or hockey tournament in Ottawa. If you have a request you aren't sure we can handle, please ask!

We will not accept dogs in heat under any circumstances. Bone Voyage Inc. guest dogs are fully insured by Pet Sitters International.
