How it works
Skip the kennel
Sittings take place at your home and boardings take place at your pet caregiver's home.
All pet caregivers offer pick-up and drop-off for boarding services.
Your pet caregiver will send photos and videos throughout the service in addition to a thorough report card.

“Wanted: Dogs to spoil rotten :)”
Hello! I absolutely love dogs and have experience with all types. I believe dogs have their own distinct personalities and I love getting to know them and learning what makes them happy. I'm not a clock watcher and sometimes spend more time with pups than what is scheduled for extra love. I take all precautions to keep dogs safe in all the weather elements, as well as from other animals we may encounter. I use positive reinforcement for good behavior and would love to meet new furry friends!

Hi! My name is Danny and I'm the owner of a handsome pug named Samson, and friend to many other sweet canines. I'm looking forward to meeting your dog and spending some time outdoors with them. When I'm not dog walking, I'm an artist and professor in the Chicago area.
Dog Boarding in Canton
Founded by Diane Aquino with the support of her family, Jade’s No Kill Rescue has been a labor of love since its inception in 2012. Working out of a dedicated foster network, this shelter has built a community of dedicated dog lovers firmly rooted in the No Kill mantra. This shelter promotes their mission of refuge and compassion by providing Canton residents with connections to resources they need in emergency situations like natural disasters or forced surrender. Adoptions are appointment only.
Paws Crazy is a small nonprofit serving Canton and other towns in Stark County through their expansive foster network. Committed to resolving animal homelessness, Paws Crazy works to provide vaccinations and desexing to all animals that come into their welcoming arms. They have adoption events frequently and host local fundraising events like the Spaghetti & No Balls Dinner or the Scotch Doubles Bowling Night. This rescue is a no-kill shelter, so space is limited.
Like the name suggests, Second Chance Ohio is a small rescue that strives to give dogs a second chance at life by placing animals in a loving foster home until they are adopted. Despite their limited capacity, this shelter has rehomed hundreds of animals since 1991. By fostering intimate relationships with adoptable animals, the passionate crew at Second Chance are able to provide prospective owners with all the details needed to create a match made in heaven and a happily ever after story. Second Chance is a no-kill facility, and only take surrendered animals under very specific circumstances.

Canton Farmers' Market
Starting in April and running through to the beginning of October, the Canton Farmers’ Market has been bringing local produce, meats, flowers, and dairy to Downtown Canton for nearly 15 years!

Leashed dogs are welcome to browse the market, and will surely love to make a pit stop at one of the several pet treat makers present. There are always live music events, children’s activities, and community resource providers present, so start your Saturday off right at the Canton Farmers’ Market!
First Fridays: Gone to the Dogs
First Fridays: Gone to the Dogs
On the first Friday of every month from June to December, Canton Arts District becomes a hub of activity for creative minds and local residents. First Friday has a theme that changes every month, and kicks off in June with the theme: Gone to the Dogs. This free event will showcase art, music, dancing, and other outlets influenced by man’s best friend. Dogs are welcome to tagalong; however, they may not be allowed inside certain art galleries. There will be a little something for everyone to find the artist within!
Hosted in Historic Zoar Village, Dog Fest invites Cantonites and their four-legged loved ones to come on down to Dog Fest for a day of fun. There will be sport demonstrations by Buckeye Dock Dogs, vendors, food, and activities for the pups and the kids. If you’ve got your eye on a prize, this event will host several competitions like a dog-human look-alike contest or a costume contest! Parking is only $5 for the day, so grab your leash and head to Zoar for the weekend.
Get your flower crowns ready and your Camelbak’s filled, Pawchella is coming to Fieldcrest Estate with summertime vibes in tow! There will be music, food, adoption events, and a huge play zone for off-the-leash fun. If you can manage to peel yourself away from the petting zoo and pet-friendly games, there are contests to compete in for prizes. This event is open to all pets of any kind, so long as they are well-behaved and down for a good time. Unlike its namesake, this all day event is free for everyone!
If there is one thing we can all agree on, its that a line of dogs in zany costumes is worth leaving the house for! Whether its participating or spectating, Canton Parks and Recreation invites the community to a Dog Parade at Spiker Park each Autumn. This free event is a great opportunity to meet other dog owners and make friends both human and canine. Participants will receive a tennis ball until supplies run out, so be sure to get there on time!
