Dog Boarding & PlayCare near Barrie Ontario

Dog Boarding

Goldnote offers dog boarding and PlayCare (daily dog care without boarding) for dogs of all ages and breeds. Conveniently located between Midland and Barrie Ontario, our newly built, spacious and bright dog boarding suites, over-sized exercise yards, and grassy play areas will provide your dog with the ideal dog boarding experience.

Dog Boarding Suites

Goldnote provides much more than a ‘dog kennel’ for boarding your family pet. Our comfortable, fully modern stainless steel, glass and tile suites create a private space for your dog to rest comfortably after play sessions or at day’s end.

Goldnote Provides a Holistic Approach to Dog Boarding & PlayCare

Whether boarding your dog or spending a day at PlayCare, Goldnote takes a holistic approach to your dog’s health and care wherever possible. We are a team of experienced, compassionate and dedicated dog lovers ready to provide specialized care for your canine companion. We welcome

  • All breeds of dogs
  • Intact or sexually altered dogs
  • Small, senior and special needs dogs including dogs with unique medical, dietary or mobility requirements
  • Dogs who require other special diets or medication
  • Raw fed dogs

Goldnote produces species appropriate raw dog food. All of our dogs and puppies are fed Goldnote’s own carefully prepared raw dog food. We will provide the same for your dog, when requested.

Dog Boarding for Intact Male or Female Dogs

Goldnote provides dog boarding for intact dogs; dogs that have not been neutered or spayed. We believe that it is in the dog’s best interest that they remain intact until they reach an appropriate age.

We carefully manage all intact male and female dogs in our boarding and kennel environment. Each dog is assessed for its compatibility with others – intact or not.

Request a Goldnote Play Pal When Boarding or During PlayCare

We will have one of our own Goldnote dogs as a play pal for your dog, where appropriate, or when requested.

Alternately, your dog may require that he or she be kept in a more private section of our play areas or boarding suites.

Exercise Yards for PlayCare or Boarding

Puppies and smaller dogs are always given their own exercise yards, separate from larger or more exuberant dogs. Goldnote matches senior dogs­—and those who prefer to watch the world go by—with a pal of similar energy levels or energy levels or dispositions.

Planning Tips for Your Dog’s Boarding Experience

Dog Food: Bring your dog’s current food of choice with you. If you forget the dog food or do not supply enough for the stay, we will supply a food of our choice and will charge the market price for the food required. We will feed kibble dogs kibble, raw fed dogs raw food.

Bedding and Toys: Your dog will feel more at home if you bring own bedding and toys. To avoid chewing, ingestion and stomach blockages, please only bring these items that you are completely confident will not be chewed or ingested while visiting a unique kennel environment.

Dog Boarding Terms and Conditions

To make a dog boarding reservation and to ensure a safe and happy experience, we require the following:

  1. A completed online or phone screening application.
  2. A copy of your dog’s vaccination record. Note:
    1. All vaccinations must be up to date before your dog can stay with us.
    2. Your dog or puppy must (as age appropriate) be vaccinated for the core vaccines of rabies, canine distemper, and parvo virus.
    3. In lieu of current vaccines, we accept current titer test results completed within 1 year of date of boarding
  3. A signed waiver regarding Bordetella Vaccine (kennel cough).
    1. Since current research suggests that the Bordetella Vaccine is not necessarily effective against all strains of viral or bacterial causes of kennel cough, Goldnote does not require our boarders to be vaccinated against kennel cough. You will be required to sign a waiver acknowledging the risks of boarding your dog under these conditions.
  4. Flea and Tick: A flea and tick prevention program is recommended in a group setting.
