Our Facility

The boarding area consists of indoor and outdoor covered runs that are climate controlled to be comfortable and inviting for the dogs. We also have large exercise yards and we let our guests out several times throughout the day to ensure that they have ample time to exercise and move around. Dogs are let out individually so that we can watch them closely and give them individual attention.
We also have sections designated for dogs with special needs. Older dogs, smaller dogs, or dogs that need other types of special care have a designated exercise yard just for them.

Group Playtime

At Hillcrest Kennel and Grooming, we pay very close attention to each dog so that we can learn about them as individuals. Before we put dogs together for group play, we watch them to ensure that the dogs are grouped for successful interactions. We never place all of the dogs in one large group.
