Monday Through Saturday
Closed on Sundays and Holidays
Limited hours for customers provide our canine clients with a less stressful environment throughout the
day and gives us time to properly care for them in an uninterrupted manner.
Why are we closed on Sundays and Holidays even though we are
still here caring for the dogs that day?
While we still care for our boarding guests 365 days of the year, we are closed for drop-offs and pick-ups on Sundays
and Holidays. This allows us, and your dogs, one day that is less stressful and relaxed where we can adjust our
schedules so that we can plan and enjoy our day doing something we may not ordinarily get to do.
As a small, home-based business, we appreciate your understanding our need for an
unscheduled day each week and on Holidays.
Please pick up one of our business cards-the hours are listed on the back.
ALL RUNS ARE Indoor/Outdoor with a 4' x 5' interior and a
4' x 12' exterior run. In very cold weather dogs are kept safely in
the interior run only with extra potty breaks throughout the day to
the exterior exercise area.
$18.00 a Night per Dog
$25.00 Minimum fee for single night stays.
$12.00 a Night per Cat

We have modern cat enclosures that provide a safe and sanitary environment for your
cat during their stay. Cats are in a cozy room separate from the dogs and have a
window to look outside. Each enclosure is equipped with a cat perch. Your cat will
receive plenty of attention, ear scratches and, if possible, some time outside his suite
at Shadowland Kennels.
The Boarding Kennel
Welcome to Shadowland Kennels. Constructed in 2001, we have a modern, clean
and secure environment to house your pet while you are away. Our 28 unit
Indoor/Outdoor dog boarding kennel is climate controlled with Central Air and
wonderful Radiant Floor Heat to warm the floor for your dog in the winter.
We pride ourselves in keeping a clean, safe and friendly environment for your
dog. Your dog will quickly learn to use the doggy door to go either inside or
outside within his enclosure. The interior kennel is not dark and dismal, but well
aired with ceiling fans and naturally lit with several windows.
Your dog can play with other dogs in one of our fenced outside play areas twice
daily or, if you prefer, have the area all to himself for a little outside stretching.
This area is rocked so that your dog stays clean even on a rainy day.
For an extra fee, your dog can be taken for a private hillside walk around our
pond or have one on one playtime in our training facility.
Dogs are made to feel welcome, loved and comfortable by our responsible and
friendly staff. Most dogs genuinely get excited about their visit to Shadowland
Kennels. They look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones and love
the biscuits, cuddling, butt-scratching and head pats given generously by the staff.

for the proper care of dogs and providing them with
the best possible environment for their physical, mental
and social needs.
