Do you need to know what is required and who can ship which sizes?  Do you need to use an Air Cargo Service or can your furry family member travel on your flight?  Do you need to travel before your pet and need a place for them and folks you can trust to send them to join you safely?  We do this!

WE CAN HELP WITH ALL BREEDS, SIZES AND TYPES OF PETS, INCLUDING ALL SIZES OF DOGS, CATS OR OTHER PETS!  Whether they are ENTERING OR LEAVING HAWAII.

Call us with your transport questions!

We are so grateful for our customers, old and new; our quality surveys tell us they love us, when it comes to resort style, squeeky clean dog boarding and DayCamp services for their much loved K9s. 

With our triple fence system, you can leave your pet with us knowing they'll be safe and secure until you return.

We enforce strict guidelines regarding sanitation and health. Every pet we board (and all of our own animals) require proof of current vaccines, including Kennel Cough (bordetella).  All guests are inspected thoroughly at check-in for fleas, ticks and other parasites. If any pests are found at check-in or later, we will treat with a topical product (see options price guide) to ensure the health of your pet and to maintain our pest free environment.

Personal items from home are always welcome for Boarding and DayCamp guests.  Please remember to label each item with the guests' first and last name.

DOGGY DAYCAMP DETAILS:

        We have a limited number of spaces available for DayCamp.  Hours of operation are:

                         7am to 6pm   ~    Monday through Saturday

    Reservations are required at least 2 days in advance.  Full and Half days can be reserved.

DayCamp offers group play, so guests must be vaccinated, somewhat socialized, non-aggressive.  We can provide DayCamp for non-socialized Guests for an additional charge.

Our goal is to provide your pet with a safe, secure, clean, fun, and enriching environment in your absence.  We will treat your pet like it's part of our own pack.  We've outfitted our kennels and facilities with the best kennel enclosures, raised orthopedic beds, a weather-proof environment with an open-air tropical feel and top of the line toys and accessories to ensure your pet feels safe and content.

We've got separate boarding areas for our Small and Tiny guests.  We call it the Penthouse Parlor.  There's no big dogs allowed in the Penthouse, so our small guests don't have to be concerned.

Our grass play yards are spacious, clean and offer great views of the surrounding lush tropical rain forests of Waiakea Uka. We've got a flock of chickens roaming the property, which provide endless entertainment for both our Large and small guests. The occasional wild pig troupe can be see tramping through the back acreage, and we can count on our guests to let us know exactly where they are.

We live on site, so your pet is never alone on the grounds of Hilo Kennels & DayCamp.  We don't punch out and go home at night or on weekends... we ARE home.

We're committed to using re-cycled materials and local products wherever possible and practical, in the Kennels as well as in our personal lives.  We watch every penny so we can offer the best value for your pet-care dollar.

In the pages that follow, You'll find details on our boarding and other services available.  We'll provide a clear explanation of what is included and what is optional.  There's never any hidden fees or surprise costs.

There's lots of pictures of our facilities here in Waikea Uka, Hilo.  From the Penthouse Parlor to "potty central" in the grass play yard.  We've added "bark!-imonials" from our guests and you'll meet a few of Hilo Kennels' mascots like Penni and Bailey.

We hope you'll bring your furry... or not so furry... K9 friend to join us for play, fun, attention and affection for the day, week or month at Hilo Kennels!



Our Hoku is 7 Years Old now.  He's our "sentry at the gate", letting us know when a new friend is arriving.
