A major concern of families seeking dog overnight care is whether their pet will have a positive experience.  We alleviate the stress of boarding your dog or puppy when you need to travel.

Conveniently accessible from I-90, Rte. 16 and Rte. 20, we are near you throughout your day for easy access.

Dog Kenneling versus Dog Overnight Boarding

No two dog boarding facilities are alike. For example, dog kennel facilities versus dog boarding facilities.

Typical dog kennels and boarding kennel facilities can provide your dog with safe shelter and meals for a short stay.

But even the best dog kennels are not set up to care for dogs beyond meeting their basic physical needs.

The best overnight dog boarding facilities are designed and staffed to support your dog’s physical, social and emotional needs throughout short-term and long-term boarding stays.

Our comprehensive approach is to provide clients seeking boarding kennels for dogs with additional options that support the overall wellbeing of their dog.

Once dog owners discover the advantages of dog overnight boarding versus dog kenneling, they realize that a basic pet kennel or puppy kennel may not adequately meet their dog’s needs.
