We would be happy to board your dog anytime you wish for as long as you wish at our indoor/outdoor kennels where our White huskies live here at the Arctic Chalet. We have new kennels that are very efficient and comfortable for our dogs to live in. The dogs are housed in chain link pens on a raised wooden floor.
Outdoor kennels have a dog box with straw.
The indoor dogs have access to our heated barn and can sleep inside at night and go in and out as they wish during the day.
We will walk your dog(s) twice a day during their stay and feed them their own dog food once or twice a day. You will need to bring your dog food which should ideally be in a container with a lid rather than in a bag.
Please find below, the contract that you must download, read and sign. We will also need vaccination information.
Note : Your dog must be healthy and friendly to handle, if at any point the dog is deemed unacceptable, owners will be asked to come pick up their dog(s). We will not take dogs that show any signs of aggression towards our staff or other humans they may come into contact with. Your dog must be well-socialized.
An extra $60 fee will be charged for dropping a dog off after hours (before 8AM or after 5PM, on Friday after 4PM) or on a Saturday.
Payment is required up front when you bring your dog. Any necessary adjustment will be made at the end of the boarding time.

Don’t let your busy schedule interfere with your furry friend’s well-being. Give the care and attention they deserve by bringing them for an enriching daycare experience! Doggy Daycare is a service for dog owners who are away from home during the day and don’t really want their dog to be at home bored all day. Our facilities provide a generous outdoor play space with 2 separated play pens. The play pens are fully fenced and secured with 2 doors sections. The play pens are separated by a wooden fence to avoid fence fighting. If some indoor pens are not used by boarding dogs then we can let your dog stay for a while inside during cold weather if they come in the winter.
Note : We do not provide any food to doggy day care dog(s) only water.
How to Become an Arctic Chalet Doggie day care Guest? To stay at our place, dogs must be friendly or tolerant with other dogs in our play pen. They cannot be barking a lot while they are here and they must be over 16 weeks of age and spayed or neutered. They must be vaccinated. When first contacting us, you will be asked a few questions and if we believe your dog is a good fit for daycare you will need to fill out our detailed form at the bottom of this page. Do not hesitate to come visit our kennels beforehand with your dog for a trial day. At the end of the day, we will let you know if your dog(s) enjoyed being in the play pen with other dogs. If it worked out well, your dog will be welcome to come back anytime! But please note that if at any point the dog is deemed unacceptable in our larger communal play pen, we will move your pet to a smaller pen where it will have to stay alone.
We rent dog kennel crates for $50 a day plus GST. A $350 security deposit is required per kennel which will be refunded when our crate is delivered back to the Arctic Chalet in good condition. Any damages will be assessed and deducted from the security deposit. If the crate is returned dirty a minimum cleaning fee of $25 will be charged. Rental period ends when the crate is delivered back to Arctic Chalet.
Check out our dogs and see if one is up for adoption!
Our huskies are a rare white breed that originated from cross-breeding Alaskan Malamutes and Siberian Huskies in a little village here in the Western Arctic. Over the years we have also purchased several pure-bred Siberians from other places to diversify our gene pool for breeding purposes. As a result many of our dogs now have a strong Siberian influence and are truly amazing sled dogs with wonderful characters and personalities. At the end of every season we usually have some dogs that are available for adoption.
If you would like to adopt or buy a dog please let us know and we will have a meeting with you to decide if you can provide the right kind of home for a husky. Then you will have to either come and get the dog or pay shipping costs to fly the dog south. You must also agree to have the dog fixed (spayed or neutered). As we love and miss every dog that is sold or adopted out, we will want you to keep in touch with us and let us know how things are working out for you and the dog. It’s always great to get an email with a photo or two of one of our dogs that has left us. If needed, we will be happy to provide advice on training and care giving.
If you would like to own one of our beautiful seasoned and retired sled dogs please let us know. There is no charge for adopting an older dog. These dogs are so easy to live with compared to younger dogs. They are mature and much more calm.
If you are thinking about getting a younger dog, we sometimes have young adults for sale too. These are dogs that are flunking “Dog Sledding 101” and want to quit their job! We do not want to force our dogs to pull. Either they love pulling or they don’t. Once we decide that they really don’t like their job, we start looking for good homes for them - homes where they will be loved and accepted for who they are. Usually these dogs sell for about $200.
Note : Some people ask us if our dogs can go south and be comfortable in a warmer climate : Customers have taken our huskies to many places in the United States, Europe and South Africa and these dogs have all acclimatized well. Huskies shed their heavy undercoat in the summer, even here in the north, and grow it back in the winter if the weather tells them to do it, and if not, then they simply do not grow the winter coat again.
