We provide a safe, caring place for your dog. Enjoy peace of mind knowing your dog will get the personal care and special attention they deserve, as well as some “paw-some” doggie FUN.

Our kennel is small and private, located in a quiet rural setting. Ideal for dogs to run and play – its like camp for dogs! We also offer canine enrichment activities and treats to make your pups stay extra special.

Relax and enjoy your time away! We are happy to text or email letting you know your pup has settled in and to keep you informed during their stay – no need to worry.

Our Facility

Each dog has their own indoor/outdoor doggie suite and supervised access to our large, fenced exercise areas, where they can enjoy playtime. The kennel has cozy heated floors when its cold out and AC for hot weather. Suites are cleaned and sanitized daily. Multi-dog families, no problem, we can accommodate pairs or multiple dogs in larger suites.
