Serving the West Kootenays

Trail, Castlegar

and surrounding areas.

Welcome to Mountain Paws Dog Walking & Dog Boarding! We are proud to offer exceptional care for your fur-baby! We have dogs of our own that are literally our children so we fully understand how cherished yours are!



I have had a lifelong love & passion for dogs and the outdoors. In 1998, I noticed that there was a something missing in the dog care service industry in Vancouver; quality, small group, in-home type of care that offered a high level of professionalism. With this knowledge I combined my two passions and made a career for myself. 20 years and 3 successful dog care businesses later we moved across the Province and settled in Rossland, BC where I started Mountain Paws.

I intrinsically love caring and advocating for dogs and have years of invaluable hands on experience working with dogs. I have Dog First Aid certificates, training certificates & experience, behavioral studies and back country travel & guiding experience as well as a diploma in Outdoor Recreation Management,. Wilderness Rescue & Occupational First Aid Level 3 has taught me to operate my businesses in a *safety first* manner. Respecting the environment as well as other trail users are also important factors in running my business with integrity! 



Please Contact Us via menu page. We will reply with forms for you to complete. Once we get them back and review,

we will set up a time for a New Client Consult. Dog Boarding consults are done at our home in Rossland BC and

Dog Walking consults are conducted in your home in Rossland, Trail, Warfield, Castlegar and surrounding areas. 

Both take around 30-45 minutes and both come with a FREE intro hike or afternoon of daycare. 

Our Forms and intake process allow us to offer exceptional care for your best friend &

gives you and your dog time to get to know us and become comfortable in our care!

Rossland, Trail, Castlegar BC

We specialize in customized, small group care for your fur-baby! Because we never have more than 3 client dogs in our home at one time we can individualize your dog's care and give them the special TLC they deserve! Seniors, small dogs, 2 big mountain hikes a day, just a walk around the block, medications or special diets are no problem.

1 or 2, 1.5 hour hikes (see hike description / takes up 1 hike spot- $25 value alone), morning and evening stroll, one-on-one attention & constant supervision, socialization, big fenced yard to play in (NO chain link kennels or gravel dog runs!), organic grain & chicken free treats as rewards, fresh water, tick checks, brushings, love, will feed food supplied by you for breakfast, lunch or dinner, raw diet and meds are no problem, cozy happy home to sleep in, photos of your dog’s ‘holiday’ posted to our Facebook page

We will follow your training regime- ie: you will not come home to a dog with new bad habits! Dogs that stay with us are loved and respected like our own. They are rarely left alone (maybe while I get groceries on a hot day), and since we are outdoorsy people, if able, your dog will go swimming to the lake, snowshoeing, hang out gardening, playing fetch etc...

*Sorry we cannot accept puppies under 6 months or intact dogs over 12 months. 

Please note: CONSULT FORM must be completed in ADVANCE. Due to the safety of all animals in our care we CANNOT accommodate last minute services to new clients.
