We've got a separate boarding area for our small and extra-small guests. We call it the Penthouse Parlor. There's no big dogs allowed in the Penthouse, so our small guests don't have to worry about being intimidated by the "big dogs". Play time in the grass yard is still part of the activities and enrichment is geared especially for the little ones.
Our grass play yard is spacious, clean and offers 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 our 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. We don't punch out and go home at night or on weekends... we ARE
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'll provide a clear explanation of what is included and what is optional. There's never any hidden fees or surprise costs.

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 atHilo Kennels!
