Pet Sitting in Vernon

Here at Shuswap Pet Resort in Vernon BC we understand how worrisome it can be to leave your pet behind while you’re away. That’s why we’ve built a state-of-the-art sitting facility to ensure that your best, furry friend will be treated with all the care and comforts of a home away from home. Our staff consists of compassionate, experienced, and caring professionals who will make sure your fur baby is happy. Our resort includes plenty of green space so that your pet is able to enjoy themselves and roam and play.

Pet Sitting for Dogs

As a guest, your pet will be assigned a caregiver who will quickly acquaint themselves with your dog’s routines. The caregiver will serve as your dog’s primary caretaker, and this staff member will play with, care for, and walk your dog. This method ensures safe, secure and fun outings for all (as well as ample rest post-walk for our older canines). We also have customizable options for you and your dog, from individual play sessions with monitors, to long walks, personalized treats, and a variety of music to choose from, we can customize your dog’s stay according to their needs.

For the duration of your pet’s stay, we provide a kennel, bed and/or blanket, bowl, and a variety of toys. You are also more than welcome to bring your pup’s personal blanket or favorite toys if desired. We want to ensure that your dog feels comfortable and at home throughout their stay. We recommend that you provide food for your dog. A drastic change in environment could cause your dog to stress - which in turn could cause gastric indigestion for those that are more nervous. By keeping their diet consistent, they will be less likely to experience an upset stomach!

Pet Sitting for Cats

Let’s face it, cats are very much creatures of habit, and they are often creatures of comfort. Thankfully for you, by treating them to a stay at Shuswap Pet Resort, you can rest assured that both of these boxes are being checked.

The resort is filled with plenty of large windows that look out over the property, which serves as the ultimate cat nap spot. Other options for your pet, include: play sessions with our monitors, and specialized treats. Bedding, bowls, and litter. Our attention to detail combined with our desire to make sure that your cat’s stay with us is as enjoyable as possible means that you can rest assured that your cat will be in the safest hands possible while you are out of town.
