About Us

Blazing Tailz is the logical evolution of our first site, fannyshome.com that we started in 2010. After running our business solo for over 3 years, we decided to associate ourselves with people of similar interests and grow the business in several directions. Our team still provides dog boarding, but also, walking, sitting, puppy visits and other services related to the pet industry.

Why in home dog boarding?

We were going to be away for 3 weeks and needed to find a nice place for our 11 year old Fanny.

We first heard of the concept of in home dog boarding a few years ago. We were planning a 3 week vacation to Europe. But what to do with our dog Fanny? Being rather new to Calgary we didn't exactly have any friends that were close enough to take care of a dog for such a long time. She was 11 years old, although in perfect health, we just couldn't fathom the thought of putting her in a kennel for 3 weeks. Our usual kennel had closed anyways and we never had her in there for more than 5 days. So off we went, looking for an alternative.

No cages, just a regular home. The dogs have lots of company, both human & animal.

We stumbled upon this nice couple that was keeping a few dogs at a time in their home. Hmm, in home dog boarding, what a concept. Comparable in price to kennel boarding and so much more relaxing for Fanny. The idea that we could be away for 3 weeks and not have to worry about Fanny being in a cage all day, alone, sold us even before the meet and greet.

So what exactly IS in home dog boarding? Well, really, it's just like having your dog staying at home, except, it's our home, instead of yours. We do the same things that you would do. We play with them, we walk them, feed them, give them their medication etc... It gives a new meaning to the concept of pet sitting, that's for sure!

We both work from home; we have pretty decent jobs however they require us to either sit at our computers or talk on the phone a lot. Having a few dogs around to play with is a welcome break in our otherwise monotonous work day. Believe it or not, a lot of our conference calls are taken in our huge backyard while we play with our friends and have them run around. Since we have a decent view from the kitchen, more than likely, we will park our laptops on the kitchen table for the day, allowing us to keep a close eye on the dogs.

Bonded and insured for your peace of mind.

Because of the personalized service that we offer, we limit the number of dogs to a reasonable level, so booking ahead of time is essential, especially during popular times of the year. These are XMAS, Spring Break and Summer vacation times. We will accommodate our regular customers first so contact us as soon as your plans are set.

We are bonded and insured, for your peace of mind. As your pet sitter we promise you that the little (or large) one will have a fun relaxing time while you are away.

So, next time you're going on vacation, don't worry about Fido. He can have a vacation too!
