The History of Gloucester Boarding Kennels and the Caretakers


"We feel comfortable leaving our pets, Muffin and Sasha, in your capable hands. Knowing they are safe and loved provides us with a peace of mind that is priceless when we go away on vacation."
- Sheila and Gregg
Gloucester Kennels, 4088 Ramsayville Road, Ottawa, Ontario K1G 3N4, Tel. (613) 822-1393

 Gloucester Kennels was founded in 1978 with the belief that dogs and cats deserve the best care possible.  Co-founders Claire Aupry and Robert Beauchamp originally owned and operated Green Acres stables.

As the business grew, clients starting inquiring about boarding their other pets, like dogs and cats. In response to customer demands, Claire and Robert constructed a specialized boarding facility for dogs and cats and began exclusively boarding small pets.


Robert grew up with a faithful border collie mix named Mickey that instilled in him a deep love of animals and a great sense of responsibility to four-legged friends.

Claire has a remarkable ease and connection with animals, resulting from her farming background. From horses to doves, Claire knows animals. She is highly dedicated and has a strong attention to detail in addition to a compassion for all animals. She also has extensive gardening knowledge, and her talents are demonstrated in the lush landscaping seen everywhere on the property.

Matthew is in charge of local and International Pet Relocation Services and is often the first familiar face our guests see at the airport. He has a vast knowledge of shipping Pets all over the world. Should you wish to receive an estimate, no matter where the destination may be, please visit our “Pet Relocation” page and/or email him at: gbkpetrelo@gmail.com .

Jocelyne has committed herself to a career working with animals and has been with Gloucester Kennels for many years. Her dedication, care, and level of professionalism make her a perfect fit with the organization. Jocelyne’s dog, Aspen, uses Gloucester Kennels’ daycare daily.

Claire and Fernand grew up on a farm in Embrun where animals were extended family members. Fernand has a love and passion for animals and his mechanical savvy keeps everything running smoothly.

Lyne grew up with animals and has been caring for Gloucester Kennels’ guests since she can remember. She also answers email inquiries and practices pet photography.

Allison, Jeremy & Tristan have been with Gloucester Kennel for several years and contribute in keeping our guests happy, healthy, and especially fit.  They are always thinking of new ways to entertain and exercise our guests.

We are extremely lucky to have Claire, Robert, Jocelyne, Fernand, Lyne, Matthew, Allison, Jeremy and Tristan on board and are grateful for their passion and kindness to all our furry and feathered guests.
