OTTAWA DOG BOARDING
With 1 acre there is plenty of room for dogs to run, play and explore. We have two large enclosed outdoor play areas for your dog(s). One area for small dogs and another for larger canines, both of which are treed for shady resting areas and open spaces for stretching out their legs. Your dogs will have access to this outdoor park individually or as part of a group depending on your dog's needs. If your dog(s) are well socialized they will be able to get the most of what we offer here. On days when the weather doesn’t agree with outdoor play or if they prefer to spend limited time outside, there is an indoor play area to accommodate all dogs exercise requirements.
During resting times, the dogs can stay in their individual interior crates or rooms. Street Wise Canine has designed a kennel that shares the comforts of home with the benefit of human interaction and other dogs company during their stay.

THE HELP CENTER
Have a Question? Here’s an Answer
WHERE WILL MY DOG BE STAYING?
We offer an in home environment for dogs. This means we are not a loud kennel environment. Your dog stays in our in law suite which has been converted to a doggy room! This means your dogs are less likely to become stressed or ill during their stay with us.
WHAT IS THE COST TO BOARD MY DOG?
The cost to board your dog with Street Wise Canine is $50.00/day. Check in time after 11:00 am and check out time is by 11:00 am . Late check outs will be subject to additional charges.
WHAT IS YOUR MINIMUM AGE FOR BOARDING A DOG?
Our primary concern is the welfare of our guests. For this reason, our minimum boarding age for dogs is 3 months. Our recommendation is to board puppies at your veterinarian’s office until they have reached our minimum age requirement.
HOW LONG CAN MY DOG BOARD AT STREET WISE CANINE? DO YOU DISCOUNT FOR LONG-TERM BOARDING?
Boarding can be indefinite, as long as we are pre-paid for each 30 days. We do not offer discounts for long-term boarding at this time.
I’M BOARDING MY PET FOR THE FIRST TIME? WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
Your pet will adjust quickly to our boarding facility and routines. Feeding, exercise, and group socials are all monitored and scheduled events that bring order and structure to the boarding environment.
You can do a lot to help prepare your pet for this environment in the days before your pet is to be boarded. First, establish (or reinforce) a routine schedule of meal times and limit feedings to twice per day. We feed in the morning, and again in the late afternoon, as required. You can also start crate training your dog at home, to ensure less stress when they are confined during their stay.
Also, we routinely quiet the kennel down after 8 PM to give the pets adequate rest and comfort. It’s best if your evening schedule, in the week before boarding, is stable and consistent, and getting the pet(s) into a comfortable “wind down” to their day by 8 PM to 9 PM will enable them to adjust quickly to the kennel, once boarded.
DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT IN ADVANCE OF A BOARDING VISIT?
Street Wise Canine requires advance payments for boarding reservations. Cancellations must be made 72 hours prior to arrival date (in advance) in order to receive a full refund of the deposit. Since so many of our customers rely on us to provide advance, verified reservations before they can finalize their family vacation or business travel plans, we must ensure that every reservation we accept is “real”, and highly likely to occur. It would be unfortunate to have to upset a family’s vacation plans because of lack of available space, and then come to find that we could have accommodated them all along, because of late cancellations. This responsibility to our customers drives our deposit policy.
