Adult Dog Boarding

We need Boarding Homes in South Delta for Guide Dogs in Training

BC & Alberta Guide Dogs needs boarding homes for dogs that are in advanced training and need to live closer to our offices. Volunteers board an adult dog (already house-trained) for around a five-month period, providing a loving home for the dog on evenings and weekends. Our staff will pick up the dog for training around 9 a.m. and drop the dog off around 4 p.m. (Monday to Friday only).

We provide food, vet care and other basic necessities for the dog.

Potential boarders must:

  • Live in Ladner or Tsawwassen
  • Be at home during the day or able to take the dog with you (best suited to retirees or at-home workers)
  • Provide a dog-friendly home with a secure outdoor space (e.g. fenced yard)
  • Follow our guidelines for training and caring for the dog

If you live in Ladner or Tsawwassen and are interested in boarding a dog – or know someone who might be – please contact us at 604-940-4504 or at
