Love, attention and loads of exercise are the standard at Varian Kennels. Your dog will have great vacation while you enjoy yours! Play and socialization, as well as reinforcing good behaviors are emphasized as all (friendly) boarding and training dogs get to play and run together with my pack! Enjoy video and/or  photo updates every few days. Boarding is available to all my previous training clients, new dogs must come for one training session first ($150 for an hour and a half) to introduce them to the pack, get them comfortable at our facility and teach them enough obedience to come off leash on our runs, not jump on me, and not blast through gates! (We are a pack here, so all the members must behave reasonably! If your dog is aggressive or needs more training to be part of the pack, I will let you know if he/she needs to come in for a training stay instead of a boarding stay.)

We also offer grooming so when you get home you can cross washing the dog off of your list of things to do! Nothing too fancy, just a shampoo, condition rinse, blowout, solid brushing and ear cleaning. Labrador Retrievers are just $35.00, heavy coated dogs like German Shepherds run about $60.

  • Boarding is $50/night for first dog ($30 each additional dog), or monthly rates are $1250 first dog, $1000/ month second.
  • Training is sometimes available at  $100  a session.
  • Holiday rates, add $10 per kennel. (not per dog, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter Vacation.)
One last note: Just as space is limited occasionally, so is my time! Make reservations early!

Or Hear what other clients had to say about their boarding experience here at Varian Kennels:

Thanks so much for taking such good care of Honalei (female German shepherd mix) while we were gone. You did a great job of shaving her belly!

Thank you so much for taking care of Hayley (female Golden Retriever.) In all her 12 years she has never been boarded and we were a little nervous about how she would do . The card you sent home with pictures of her hiking, exploring, swimming and romping with her new dog buddies were so cute and totally priceless. We are thrilled she did so well and are so glad to know there is such a great place for her to stay when we go out of town again!
