About Us - boneheads Pet Services. Vancouver Dog Walking. A better alternative to doggy daycare!


Have you ever looked for a solution that you were certain already existed because the problem seemed so common that it must? Well so have we and when we couldn't find it we decided to solve it ourselves and the result, of course, is Boneheads.

Providing more than just a stroll in the park but an adventure in the wild that will provide your dogs with the exercise and social pack mentality that they really need. Jumping over logs, running through the creeks, and connecting with their natural instincts. All our trails are off the beaten path so the dogs can run free.

We are canine first aid certified by DogSAFE. We have been working with dogs since 2009 so you can rest assured that your pup is in good hands.

Like photos? Well we like taking them - especially of your dog. With a full library of all of our hikes, we guarantee to impress you. There is a comfort in knowing that your dog is having fun while you're at work and now you can see it in high resolution!

Our commitment is not only to give our pack the best possible day out on the trails, but also and more importantly, that we bring them home healthy, content, and absolutely exhausted.We set out to create the solution that we could use for our own dogs and we are confident that we have solved that problem for you too.

Nate is an outdoor addict, even after a week of torrential rain on the mountain with the dogs he will eagerly jump on his kayak to go enjoy some more fresh air and dampness. He is quite the sucker for puppy eyes and endearing wet kisses so quite often the pack could get away with murder with just a wag of a tail ;-)

Among many of his hobbies there is photography, gardening and he is also an astounding kitchen experimenter and definitely has the eye (or stomach?) for some unbelievable creations, my tastebuds are inevitably blown away!



Janelle is a performance and media artist from Kelowna. She's a writer and an ardent outdoor lover, among many other skills. During recent summers Janelle takes kids and young adults on wilderness camping adventures and is currently looking for opportunities to continue excelling as a performer. You can check out her work at http://janellesheppard.com.

Her and Enyo, her Poodle/Saint Bernard pup, have joined our hikes and became part of the Boneheads family so smoothy that it seems like they’ve always been here!


It must run in the family because Levi has proved to be a great team member like his sister Janelle! Levi is always on the move busy either tinkering with tools, cars or anything he can get his hands on, he's like the swiss army man with experience as a volunteer fire fighter, mechanic,  ... you name it!   He seems to always be in a good mood and the pups totally pick up on that and have accepted him as his supreme party leader.
