Cat and Dog Kennels in Victoria, BC

Image of our dog kennels in Victoria BCWelcome to Dogwood Boarding Kennels and Cattery!

We have been the pet care facility of choice for numerous people and their dogs and cats since 1978.

Dogwood, a fully licensed and insured home away from home, is located in a tranquil country location in Highlands, near Victoria, BC, only five minutes from Costco and Home Depot. The well-being of the pets in our care is of utmost importance. Our family owned and operated kennel is designed to facilitate frequent human interaction and monitoring, has radiantly heated floors during the cold months and is secure, clean, and easily maintained.

Prior to boarding new dogs, we have an initial 'Meet and Greet' with you and your dog followed on another day by a free, few hours, stay at the kennel so your furry family member has a chance to become quietly familiar with new surroundings and for us to establish a positive relationship with them. We may also suggest, or require in some circumstances, an overnight stay while owners are still home and available should the pup/s show certain signs of separation anxiety, this is usually helpful for sensitive pups to adjust even more slowly to being away from their human family .... there is the usual boarding fee for the overnight stay. Our 'Gentle Introduction to the Kennel' is unique in Victoria and has proven to be of great benefit to the pets and reassuring to their owners.

Please Note: Dogs and cats from different families are always boarded and exercised separately in order to reduce stress and to eliminate the possibility of injury due to fighting or roughhousing."
