Dog Stores
In Vancouver, we like Three Dog Bakery. Located on Fourth Avenue, a great place for shopping, Three Dog Bakery is a patisserie for dogs. It has cakes, cookies and all kinds of other dog treats that will make your dog love you forever, as if she/he doesn’t already.

Overnight Stays For Dogs or Cats:
This great boarding kennel is on the Sunshine Coast. Three mornings a week, MWF, dogs are picked from a vet on the North Shore and ferried to Gibsons. Dogs get excellent care in excellent facilities. The owner is a registered animal health technician. This is really a resort for dogs.

Bullocks Boarding Kennel
RRI 277 Parker Rd
Gibsons, BC

This place, as the name implies, is for cats only. It is a veterinarian with an adjoining boarding facility called The Palms. Cats sleep in extra large cages and spend at least 6 hours a day out of the cages socializing if they want. Cats must be healthy, have all vaccinations and no fleas to stay at The Palms.
