Our professional team helps to ensure that your furry family members are well-cared for, loved and treated as our own pets while staying with us, and leave looking their best at Alpine View Pet Spa.
We are your 'dog's home away from home'.
Alpine View Pet Spa offers quality boarding, daycare, training, dog grooming, and pet supplies for our clients.
Boarding & DAY CARE
Our facility has indoor runs, attached to outdoor runs which allow the dogs to go in and out as they please between the hours of 7am and 9pm. Our runs that are suited for extra large breed dogs to medium dogs are 8′ by 6′ and the runs for the medium to extra small dogs are 6′ by 6′. All of the outdoor runs are covered; protecting the dogs from the elements and the kennel is double-fenced for extra protection.
Alpine View features in-floor heating which keeps our boarders warm in the winter and cool in the summer. We have large fenced recreational areas where the dogs get to be dogs for a greater portion of the day. We have implemented a supervised socialization program, in which we specialize each playgroup depending on the dogs needs or social skills, we encourage the dogs (especially single family dogs) to play with the other dogs. That said, if you as an owner do not feel comfortable having your pet play with others, we will play with them on their own.
Each dog is exercised twice a day, within playgroups or alone, their kennels are cleaned out twice a day and they are fed twice a day. We love our guests so we spend lots of time with each dog while their owners are away.
WHAT TO BRING
We require vaccination certificates for your pets for their stay. Dogs need to have all of their regular vaccinations, DAPP, Rabies, as well as their Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccinations. This helps to ensure all dogs safely can board together and enjoy social play.
For special circumstances such as: compromised immunity, titre tested or senior dogs special circumstances please contact us to discuss.
Dogs have sensitive digestive systems, therefore all owners are required to bring enough pet food for your pet for the entire stay, plus an extra two days worth in case you get delayed coming home. Please bring food in a Tupperware or other sealed plastic container, labeled and easily portioned is preferred.
We encourage you to bring bedding, or a blanket to smell like home, as we like to make their kennel feel as close to home as possible. If you forget bedding, don’t worry we have some that your pet can use.
Please leave your dogs toys at home, they will be active and not bored. We welcome bones and treats if you choose.

Bath & TIDY
Maintain your dog’s style between full haircuts.
Bath, brush and blow dry, ear cleaning and nail trim. Tidy face, feet and sani between full grooming appointments to prevent matting and skin issues.
The full makeover!
Bath, brush and blow-dry, ear cleaning, nail trim, full body haircut as requested. Price is based on a shorter length left on, longer styles, breed cuts etc. are available as an option for an additional cost, and may require more frequent appointments to maintain.
‘Humanity over Vanity’
Not all dogs like grooming, either because they are older, have had a bad experience in the past, or have medical issues. A ‘comfort groom’ is just that, a groom with the dog’s comfort and needs in mind. We can set up a program that works with your dog’s needs to keep them in good shape with a style (if clipping/trimming is required) that minimizes their stress levels.
Deshedding, dematting, dirty dogs $10 for every 15 minutes required.
Shave-downs (for dogs that have not been groomed in the past six months and require a complete shave prior to bathing) $15+.
Hello all you pawsome parents, we are so excited to let you know that mid JUNE in stage 2 we will continue with classes!
However we will offer outside classes for June 5, 12, and 19 unless we are allowed indoor class again.
Further into our class information, we wanted to announce a change effective
All our classes will be moving back into a clinic type of format where we will do a 4 or 6 class session and will run for a set amount of dates. We are implementing this structure again as it helps us be sure that skills and lessons follow our curriculum, to ensure your pup and you learn the maximum amount of skills. We also found this format was much less stressful for our dog parents to know exactly what time frame to expect to come to classes. Please know that after a 4 or 6 week session of classes ends, you are always welcome to continue on to the next class for furthering education or to retake and continue to work on social skills, and cues. Our dogs are always learning and we hope that you will let us be a future part of your bond with your fur friend.
Our clinic for the summer will be updated within the next couple of weeks so please let us know if you have questions.
