What Others Have to Say...

"If you have human babies, you know the feeling of finding a babysitter, daycare, school or care provider for your tiny person.

Pathfinder brings that same level of relief and gratitude for the care of your fur baby.

Our pup Spencer absolutely adores spending time at "the ranch" or "Auntie Chantale's" - as Pathfinder has affectionately become known in our home. 

 

Added bonus of having the add-on option of pick-up and/or drop-off shuttle. This has changed my life as a busy working Mom and pet owner - it's now part of our family!!!"

"We didn't expect the service to have far exceeded our expectations over a prolonged leave from home with my husky "Blue" surrounded and smothered by a team of professional and dedicated dog careers.

 

From the pictures and videos being constantly updated while we were away, we soon felt at ease and assured that we had found the best option for her.

 

Instead of being fenced in, she was kept active and engaged in walks and hiking with other dog mates and was treated like a member of the family.

 

I give thumbs up to Pathfinder Pet Care and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for short or long term care with a truly 'home-feel' surrounding."

"My experience with Pathfinder Dog Ranch truly exceeded my expectations. It was my first time leaving my dog Bailey anywhere over night, and I definitely had some fears and reservations going into it.

 

Chantale and her team went above and beyond to ensure that Bailey had a successful stay. The communication I received during her stay helped calm my nerves and reassured me that Bailey was safe, happy and loved as if she were family.

 

I’m so grateful to have found Pathfinder and can now finally know that Bailey always has a home away from home when I need it!! I 100% recommend them to anyone who is looking for a daycare or boarding service for their dog that will go above and beyond what you could ever hope for!"

"We are very glad to have found Pathfinder! We have sent our dog Salina a few times for boarding and plan to continue sending her often.

 

Salina is a rescue and has some behavioural quirks and fears, and Pathfinder made sure she was very comfortable there. Salina is very happy and excited when we drop her off.

 

We really appreciate the extra care they are taking to help correct some of Salina's issues. Chantale is very communicative and it is clear that she is very passionate about her dog ranch and dog guests! I have peace of mind that Salina is well cared for while she is there. I would absolutely recommend you send your dog here for daycare or for an extended stay."

"Chantale and staff are amazing. My doggo Max is a rescue and was so concerned that a boarding place or kennel would be very stressful.

However Chantale and the gang made it the best experience for Max. (& for us of course) This is not like any other dog care place I have experienced- home away from home really.

I have used Pathfinder Pet Care for coaching/training (mostly of me..) and pack walks. So when the dog ranch opened I knew we could trust leaving our boy there. He was happy, playful and totally showered with positive attention. We received pictures and updates while away. I have and will continue to recommend the dog ranch.

 

Max is looking forward to his next sleepover at ‘Auntie Chantale’s."

"After one coaching lesson with Chantale, our labrador retriever is paying attention to US and walking with a loose leash! Unbelievable. Chantale's expertise and experience with dogs is remarkable. I've just been practising what she taught us, and my walk with Fergus at Boundary Bay Park where he has to be leashed was a complete 180 turn. We both enjoyed the walk!

 

I highly recommend Chantale and her team.Our two labs and our grand-dog often have sleep overs at the Dog Ranch, participate in day camps and go on pack hikes."

"Absolutely highly recommend Pathfinder for boarding and adventure walks!! Our dog waits looking out the window waiting for his pick up on walk days (how does he know?) and Chantale’s boarding is second to

none !!"

- Pat Kennedy, Ladner, BC 

"I was hired to work for Pathfinder Pet Care. Chantale is organized, passionate and oh so knowledgeable about dogs. She loves each furry personality under her care and it is so obvious they love her back.

She taught me about dog behavior and body language, eliminating problems before they become a situation. How to keep myself with a pack safe and happy at an off leash dog park. As well as how to keep antisocial dogs relaxed, and comfortable on private walks.

Everyone has quirks and things we could work on it's important to recognize each dog's strengths and weaknesses so you can fully support them. The trust these pups have with Chantale is incredible, she meets each of their needs there for they clearly love and respect her. She's honest and communicative and exactly who I'd want taking care of my precious fur baby. It's been a delight learning from her and I'm so proud to be working for Pathfinder Pet Care."

"I know daycares for your loved fur babies may seem scary however, My Dog absolutely loves it at pathfinder! Somehow they tire her out everyday when I didn't even think it was possible. In the process she has also become way more respectful of other dogs. Definitely the top daycare that I have been too. Definitely recommend for any others."
