Over 20 Years of Animal Care Experience


We know that everyone feels some guilt when they go somewhere and can't take their canine companion with them. We want to eliminate some of that guilt and worry by providing a safe, fun, relaxed environment where each dog gets the personal attention it needs. At SunDog the dogs are not kenneled during the course of the day and are allowed to socialize with other dogs if they so desire. We have plenty of room indoors and out to accommodate everyone's individual needs. Because the dogs are with us all day, we have the opportunity to really get to know each dog's personality, likes/dislikes and habits. Knowing these things makes it easier to provide each dog with the very best care possible. We know that your dog is a loved member of your family, and we look forward to him/her becoming a member of the SunDog family.



Dogs must not be aggressive towards other dogs.

Dogs must be free of fleas and other parasites.

Dogs must have a well-fitted collar with some form of identification attached (Please, no choke chains or pinch collars).

"We adopted a puppy in April and started taking her to Sun Dog in May. She's been there for day care and boarded several times since then. Every time we drop her off she's so excited and can't wait to play with the other dogs.She barely cares that we're leaving and that makes it so much easier on us! Allison is truly amazing. She gets to know you and your dog, and you know your furbaby is in extremely good hands in her care."

Monica Paul Hackney

"Whenever we go somewhere and can’t bring our German Shepherd along with us we are comforted by the care she gets at Sun Dog. She is loved and cared for at camp just like she is at home. We can’t thank you enough for taking care of our girl! I would highly recommend Sun Dog."

Andrew LaCount

"I travel a lot for work, and knowing that my dog is safe, cared for, and having fun takes away makes it so much easier. When we arrive, he's whining to get out of the car because he's so excited to see Allison and find out which of his doggy friends will be there to play with. When I pick him up, he comes home happy and exhausted. Allison is the absolute best, she knows dogs and is able to balance fun and safety perfectly. SunDog is everything I could want and more!"

Amelia Hamilton

"Allison loves everyone's dogs! She has always gone out of her way to accommodate us and has had to be flexible at times and we so appreciate it! Our LuLu loves her and always looks just as healthy as when we bring her. We are grateful to have found a place to trust with our family member!"

Sophia DeLonghi

"I think Sun Dog is awesome!! Allison's focus is on the dogs and their well being. She provides total peace of mind when you can't be with your buddy."

Mary Schultz Machin

"Hands down the best place for your dog to spend the day, the night, the week! Our dogs get super excited when we pull in the driveway and they realize they are at their favorite dog camp. Thank you, Allison. You are amazing and we really appreciate how much our dogs love to spend their time away from home with you."

Kris Kruid

"The very best possible place for your dog to stay when you cannot take them with you :) Ollie and Bailey are my Shihtzu boys and they get so excited when I tell them they are going to see Allison at Sun Dog! They love it there and they get great care!"

Teri Ann Klein McFarlan

"Allison @ Sun Dog Kennel has my highest respect and rating. She has lovingly cared for all of my dogs, from the young to the seniors. She handled an emergency situation with one of my senior dogs with the utmost professionalism and compassion. I appreciate that she limits the dogs and that her day is spent giving the Sun Dog Campers 100% of her attention. She is committed to providing them with a safe, fun environment. It is such a relief to know my dogs are well taken care of when I need to travel. We love Sun Dog!"

Sue Hughes

"Allison and Sun dog kennel are wonderful. She was kind enough to watch my AC PAW foster dog for 2 weeks last January. "Gypsy" came back happy and healthy. The facility is very clean and safe. Allison is very trustworthy and truly cares about all the dogs at Sun Dog. My own dog is looking forward to his stay this summer."
