"Boarding" em Toronto

Todos vocês sabem da minha preocupação em encontrar um bom lugar para deixar a Ísis e o Willy assim que chegarmos a Toronto, por isso escrevi para todos os endereços de hoteizinhos e pet shops que encontrei no Toronto dogs.

Depois de apanhar um pouco do idioma descobri que boarding é quando você deixa seu pet pernoitar em um hotelzinho.

Ao escrever para esses locais disse que estaria chegando em Toronto no mês de maio (quem me dera fosse verdade) porque das outras vezes que eu dizia que não tinha data certa para ir eles não foram muito legais comigo. Então aqui estão as respostas e os locais pesquisados.

O que eu mais gostei foi o Jog-a-Dog, inclusive porque parte do dinheiro com a hospedagem vai para uma instituição protetora de animais, mas só depois eu vi que esse local nem fica em Toronto. No entanto, parece que eles têm um serviço de leva-e-traz:

Our boarding facility is located in a country setting just outside the town of Lindsay. ** WE CAN COME TO YOU - A door to door shuttle bus is provided to certain areas, when it is applicable. A round trip fee of $15 and one-way trip of $10 applies. Drop off and pick up locations in Toronto can be arranged.

Jog-a-Dog:
Thanks for contacting me.  The picture of your dogs is adorable!  They look
really sweet. Yes I will be available to board your dogs in May and I can
certainly give you a special rate since it is a rather long time. The cost
for two dogs in usually $45 a day and for one dog is $35. If we would be
able to make an arrangement that you could pay cash then I could drop the
rate to $30 a day for the both of them together. And I could round off the
total payment. For instance 14 days at $30 is $420. I could round that off
to $400 even. You mentioned that it could take longer so we can discuss
rounding off a fee to the lower price. I do however, need to make sure that
your dogs are friendly with other dogs. I would also need to know how they
are off leash so I could take them out for walks accordingly (on or off
leash and if they will play well with others)

Please keep in touch and let me know what you decide. I'll wait to hear
back from you. Take care!

Deena Speaks Dog:
Thanks for your interest in B&B at my place (Home environment-- couch and
tons of love and cookies) while your away for your two dogs. (The picture is
cute).Your calculation(I know that your fee is 35 dollars per day, so 2 dogs will be 70 per day?) is correct regarding the price and if you are still
interested please let me know. Part of the proceeds goes to the CNIB. (Guide
dog assistant fund)
Looking forward to your reply,

Barking Along Pet Care Services:
We do provide home boarding and they lovely. Our homes could have 3 more dogs there as well so your dogs would need to be well socialized.
WE also require that dogs are neutered - not sure what you do in Brazil.
Our price is $40 per dog per night.
Good luck with your move.
Let me know if you require any more information.

Dog Gone Walking:

For two dogs from the same household, I would charge $20 per day for each dog ($40). How do your dogs relate to cats? There are cats in my household and that would be an issue should your dogs not get along with them.

Metro Dogstop:

Thanks for your interest in Metro Dogstop. Unfortunately, we require a consultation with the owner of the dog and a trial day of daycare before we
admit dogs to be boarded. Unless there is some chance that you will be in
the country to arrange a meeting with us, then I'm afraid we won't be able
to assist you. Best of luck and please feel free to contact us in the future.
Kindly,
Danielle

A Leg Up Dog Walking and Pet Sitting:

Nice timing...I'd hate to move from Brazil to hear before the weather here has caught up with something approaching the Brazilian climate.
They'd both be welcome, but we would have to do a preliminary meeting upon their arrival to ensure that they are not aggressive and well-socialized with other dogs. Also, we would have to see their immunization records, etc.
The rate for over 7 nights is $40/night for one dog. The second dog is half price. So the total would be $60/night.
Let us know if you would like to reservce space.
Thanks,
Nigel

Sou louca... apaixonada por animais... Por isso sempre peço ao meu marido para nunca me dar um!!! Quando eu era criança não saia de casa para fazer companhia para o peixe Reginaldo!!! Deixei um cachorrinho York Shire com a minha mãe no Brasil... Puxa!! Todo domingo choro de saudade dele... de vontade de ir passear com ele... Se eu não estivesse estudando o dia todo, se não estivesse o dia todo fora ficaria com seus dogsinhos sem problema algum!!!!!
Se eu souber de alguma coisa por aqui venho correndo te avisar, ok?!?!?!??!
Um beijo
