We have three separate buildings for boarding dogs,
cats, and exotics.

 

Dogs / Main Kennel

Family Suites
Kennel Runs
Dogs of Any Size or Breed
Drop-Off / Pick-Up Office

Note:  Safety for your pets, other boarding dogs, and our staff members are our primary concern. We do not discriminate against breeds; however, if any dog is deemed a safety risk, we reserve the right to decline to offer boarding or day care services.. If this is the case, we will offer recommendations to other boarding facilities that may be a better match for your pet.

According to Bradenton lore, the kennel we call DogStars has been in existence for about 65 years. It is even mentioned in John McDonald’s famous Travis McGee series.

It started with a house in what was, then, the ‘country.’ That house is now home to our catterie and a new house was built on the property sometime in the 1990s.

Then came the main kennel with 30+ air-conditioned indoor/outdoor kennel runs. Next came a separate air-conditioned building just for little dogs.

Then came agility fields, a covered pavilion, and a competition-level dock-diving pool.

Of course, over the years, we’ve updated, replaced, and made improvements, but it still has that old Florida look and charm.




 

Dogs / Small-Dog Suites

Families up to 30 lbs.

 

Note:  Safety for your pets, other boarding dogs, and our staff members are our primary concern. We do not discriminate against breeds; however, if any dog is deemed a safety risk, we reserve the right to decline to offer boarding or day care services.. If this is the case, we will offer recommendations to other boarding facilities that may be a better match for your pet.

We created a special building just for small dogs (and small dog families), whose owners may want them to stay in an environment where they are not looking at a big dog across the aisle.

This space is completely indoors and air-conditioned. Sound panels in each run provider privacy.

The little dog play area is right outside the door, making it easy doe outdoor play sessions … just with dogs of their own size.

Each run has a guillotine-type door that we leave open to give dogs extra room when the suites are not full or if there is a second family dog in residence at the same time
