Your Dog’s Safety and Comfort are our Top Priorities!

Our small scale boarding service is an excellent option for all dogs, particularly those dogs who may not fare well in kennel facilities.

Boarding Details

Twinkle Boarding is inclusive of but not limited to overnight care, walks, pee breaks, feeding and compassionate care

Your dog will not be left alone longer than 5 hours during the day

Our boarders will always be in the home overnight with your dog

Our boarding hosts are dog owners themselves so there are always other dogs in the home which is great for closely monitored socialization

All services are customizable to meet your dog’s specific needs – we will always do our best to accommodate your dog!

  • Absolutely! We offer a complimentary meet and greet with the sitter prior to your departure to ensure everyone is comfortable with one another.

Will my pet(s) be alone overnight?

  • Absolutely not! The sitter will be with your pets through the night.

Will my dog be crated all day?

  • Absolutely not! Crates are not provided by the sitter. If your dog is crated for any reason (ie: grocery shopping, overnight, etc) the crate must be provided. Otherwise your pet will have free reign, supervised, on the main floor of the home.
