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.


for Small Guests (Less than 25 lbs) & Large Guests (Over 24 lbs):

We offer individual suites, raised orthopedic cots, cozy bed or rug; Personal attention and affection; Morning & Evening Custom Meals; All Day, Unlimited Playtime in the Penthouse Parlour or Big Dog Central, as appropriate; 1-2 treats per day; Sanitized toys of different sizes and textures, including treat hides, unlimited fresh water day and night.



If your Pup is not able to mix and socialize with other Guests (for any reason), "Special Care" charges will apply.  They will receive personal walks and play-time with us in a private grass yard or suitable area (based on size and health).  (ADD $10/Night per Guest).


Based on the age and size of your young puppy, we can provide a secluded, limited group exposure until the Puppy has completed their series of vaccines.  Once the immunizations are completed, your Puppy can be gently introduced to full group play and activities.


We can provide a quiet and comfortable environment for your Special Needs friend.  We will follow yours and your Vet's instructions exactly regarding feedings, medications, supplements and environment.  Please talk to us about your Special Needs Pet.  We can be a home-away-from-home. Indoor Suite/Special Care charges will apply.



        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 and non-aggressive.  We can provide DayCamp visits for non-socialized Guests for an additional charge of $3 per visit.

New paragraph

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.

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 Big Dog Central in the grass play yard.  We've added "bark!-imonials" from our guests and you'll meet a few of Hilo Kennels' mascots (our own Pets!) like Peni and Hoku.

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 & DayCamp!

Our most requested healthy snack is...


Dental Chews by the wonderful folks at NYLABONE in New Jersey, USA.

We cut them to suit the size of the Guest and they all LOVE these USA Made snacks!

Available for sale in our reception area!
