Canine Boarding

We are committed to ensuring that each and every pet feels relaxed and secure while in our care. 

It is our goal to make every guest – from the feistiest puppy to the most mellow senior – completely at home. Along with moderate playtime, dogs enjoy plenty of leisure here. You’re encouraged to bring your dog’s favorite blanket for his/her suite, as well as his dog bed, food, and a much-loved toy or two. With these familiar comforts, your dog’s tail will be wagging as he/she settles into our clean, welcoming environment.

Our dog boarding facility in Suttons Bay features climate-controlled indoor kennels that are cleaned and sanitized daily. We have a small dog ward for the smaller dogs to relax in, as well as a large run area with two extra-large kennels to accommodate giant breeds or families that wish to board multiple dogs in the same kennel. Each pet receives individual exercise four times daily in the high-fenced yard and leash walks as time and weather permits.

  • Rabies vaccine
  • Distemper/Parvo vaccine
  • Bordetella vaccine
  • Annual negative Intestinal Parasite
  • Annual negative Heartworm Test

Feline Boarding in Suttons Bay, MI

As clean and as neat as your cat, our feline facilities will charm even the most finicky of guests. Our facility provides a separate, climate-controlled room with multi-level kitty condos!
