Boarding Overview

Welcome to LifeWithParrots! We are a home based business that offers a quality overnight boarding service providing our boarders with lots daily of out of cage playtime and 12 hours of undisturbed sleep each night. We’ll do everything we can to ensure your bird has the best experience possible and you can feel confident knowing your bird will be properly cared for during their stay.

The shared boarding room is kept around 22 degrees Celsius with a large window to allow some natural light and a radio playing music throughout the day for entertainment when birds are not out of their cage. Your feathered companion can also get some outdoor exposure by going on walks to the park on warm days in a harness if your bird is currently harness trained or by having their cage moved outside and monitored during warm daylight hours.

We prefer that owners bring their own cage and food to keep change to a minimum, helping to reduce the level of stress on your feathered companion. If you can not transport their cage, we do have limited cages available to use (at no extra cost) but ask that you bring some of their perches and toys. (See below photos for boarding cage measurements)

We ask that you book as far ahead for boarding as possible to ensure we have available space, especially for the summer and winter holiday season. We will do our best to accommodate last minute boarders but can not guarantee that we will be able to house them.

All birds must meet the following requirements:

  • Be in general good health. Plucking/barbering due to stress, habit or hormones is acceptable
  • Be completely weaned for at least 2 weeks
  • Have no open wounds or recent major injuries (occurring within one (1) month before the appointment date)
  • Be harnessed or in a carrier when entering and exiting LifeWithParrots

If you’re interested in boarding your feathered companion(s) with us, please look over and fill out the LifeWithParrots overnight bird boarding information form found on our website under “Bird Boarding” and then send it to our email or bring it in with you. Any questions? We’d be happy to answer them through email or you can call/text us anytime between 9am – 9pm at our phone number found on our website under “Contact Us”. Thank you for your interest, hope to see you and your feathered companion soon!
