We have seen a huge change in Coho from attending BowDog. We always have fosters in our house and it used to take Coho a couple days to get used to them and now he is so excited to meet the new dogs! He gets so excited whenever we say BowDog and I feel completely comfortable leaving him with you guys while we are out of town. THANK YOU!!

Activities and Pampering for our Dog Lodging Guests

Our fun loving and experienced staff at BowDog Canine Specialists can find just the right toy, play the right game or read and snuggle the afternoon away with our dog kennel guests! Our professional experience has taught us that active and happy pets are healthy pets, especially when they’re away from home. Our facility is specifically designed to give our dog boarding guests a place where they can thrive rather than that of a typical dog kennel service. Puppies, active adults and seniors all benefit from regular interaction and activity. So whether your pet loves to party with groups of other social dogs or prefers the one-on-one attention of our Canine Specialists, we have something fitting and special for your best friend at BowDog.

Fun and activity are the best parts of vacations for humans and dogs alike. We know that every pet has different interests and that’s why our play sessions are customized to meet their individual preferences.

Group Play: At BowDog we're happy to provide social dogs group play sessions in our outdoor off leash parks. Your dog can romp and play in the fresh air while on vacation with us. Your dog is placed in a size and energy appropriate play group and provided constant supervision by staff certified in group play supervision. Participants must be spayed/neutered, friendly towards dogs and people, fully vaccinated and in great health.

Activities: Our team is committed to providing your pet the special love and attention they deserve. Play time can include a game of fetch, swimming in the wading pools, supervised walking or running on the treadmill, or quiet snuggles and story time with our staff. Activities are offered for dogs that love group play and those that prefer their own company and require one-on-one attention.

You can choose one of the following:

  • A full day of group play in a size and energy appropriate pack
  • A half-day of group play in a size and energy appropriate pack
  • Up to 2 one-on-one personal play sessions with a staff member

Add a Spa Day!

You can add grooming, nail trims and other spa services to your pet’s lodging reservation!  There’s nothing better than coming home to a best friend who isn't just happy but also looks and smells great too!  Our Reservations Specialists are happy to schedule your grooming reservation and discuss service details.

Health and Vaccination Requirements

The health, safety and wellness of our guests is of paramount importance to us. All guests must be current on the following vaccinations:

  • DHLP
  • Rabies (1 year +)
  • Bordetella
  • We highly suggest a pest preventative (Revolution or Advantage)

Our Pet Care staff are all trained in pet wellness, behaviour and first-aid. We also have, within our pet family, veterinarians who are on call 24/7. If your pet should require medical attention while in our care our protocol is to contact your veterinarian. Should the nature of your pet’s illness require an office visit we reserve the right to utilize our on-call veterinarian (this decision depends on the illness and the travel time to your veterinarian). Our caring staff can administer any oral or topical medications your dog may require during their visit.


Calgary's best pet resort books up months in advance over peak vacation periods like spring break, summer vacation and the winter holiday season. Reservations are required.

I have to say the whole experience from the initial phone inquiry to the final day pickup was a breeze. I really loved and looked forward to your daily emails on how and what Batman was doing. It was a big piece of mind to know he was doing great. Oh! And of course his report card! How awesome. I will never take him anywhere else.
