San Jose Home-Style Dog Boarding

Home-Style Dog Boarding

We offer home-style boarding for small breeds only, this means no crates! (only when necessary) all dogs are treated like part of our family. They have supervised run of the house: the kitchen and living room are the most favored places, and they get to snooze on the couch if they wish. Enjoy the company of our small dogs and become part of a Dog Pack.

Guests have the luxury of playing and relaxing in our big, luscious, shaded backyard with lots of squirrels and birds to chase. Our resident Hens will provide lots of entertainment for curious dogs who have never seen a chicken so close (Kenya’s hens are kept in their yard for their safety). During the summertime, we set up a pool for those pups that love hanging out in the water. Walks are done daily and weekend trips to our nearest dog park are included.

Our dog pack: Puchini toy-Poodle, Molly a Yorkie, and Pepito Chihuahua. Our dogs are friendly and are familiar with lots of friends visiting. You can take a look at our IG account to see some of the pups in action playing in our yard (under the Boarding circle)
