About Us

"I've been sending my Dogs to Eastway Kennels for over 15 years, be it for an overnight, a weekend..a week or longer.. My dogs have always been well taken care of and even in a situation where my dog fell ill or was on medication, Eastway Kennels took particular attention to making sure her Meds where given as per direction and schedule or have even followed up with my Vet. Eastway Kennel's care for my present Dog Leah is only surpassed by the quality of the people who run the Kennel..Nicole, Courtney and the rest of the staff are by far the most responsible and caring group one could hope for. I recommend Eastway to anyone seeking a wonderful family Kennel in a country atmosphere."

Matt Nalbandian

Eastway Kennels is a family-run business in Orleans, Ontario, Canada. We built a brand-new fully air conditioned and heated facility in 1996 to better house and provide for our residents. We focus on the comfort and safety of your pet and provide both basic and premium boarding services, so you can meet your dog's or cat's individual needs. 

We also have on-site grooming and training services to ensure that your pet makes the most of his or her stay. You can drop off your pet (or engage our pick up and delivery service) knowing that they're receiving the best care and attention we can provide. Whether it's grooming, medications, or just some extra play-time, we'll build the service package your pet needs to keep them (and you) happy.

Acting as the General Manager, Nicole is responsible for the overall operations of the business as well as day-to-day tasks with your pets. After completing her education as an Animal Care Aid, Nicole went on to spend 5 years as a Veterinarian Assistant before joining the family business.
