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


Boneheads Pet Services was founded by Jef and Rosa in 2009 to fill a gap in the dog daycare industry: doggy adventure hikes! Nate joined the team as a hiker in 2014 and became an integral part of the Boneheads team. To make a long story short, fast forward to 2018, along with his wife Jess, Nate has taken the reins and carries on in classic Boneheads tradition.

Although many companies offer off-leash adventure hikes for dogs, Boneheads stands out by providing extended hikes, awesome photos, and screening and ongoing monitoring to make sure your canine pals are having a great time and staying safe!


NATE - Co-owner/Packmaster

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 ;-)

JANELLE - Packmaster

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!

LEVI - Packmaster

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.
