Going away?
Send your pet
on vacation!

While you are away, your dog needs human interaction and to run and play, not stay indoors all day! Look around and find out how Little River can give your dog an exciting stimulating vacation! Make a Reservation

Play all day! - Sleep all night!
How is Little River Different?

You would not like to stay indoors 24 hours a day for days or weeks at a time -and neither would your pet! Don't let your dog be bored or stressed in an all indoor kennel. While separated from you, we believe that your pet needs to go outside to large fenced play yards and burn off energy and stress - not once, not twice, but 7 times per day. In short - that's the Little River difference. Seven daily trips outdoors to play with compatible new friends - every day - all included in the basic boarding rate.

Between outside play times, your pet will rest in their own indoor space with bedding and toys from home!

Room To Run!

Our Play Areas offer room to run! How would your pet like to play out here throughout the day?

How can we help you?

Little River is a new idea in dog boarding. We believe that boarding should NEVER be a stressful or boring experience. While you are away, your pet deserves much more than just food, water and shelter - like constant human interaction, socialization with other dogs, 7 outdoor play times each day, hikes, special treats, heated/air conditioned rooms, music, and acres to run and play. Take a few minutes to explore this site and learn about who we are, why we do what we do, and how we can work with you to make sure your pet has as much fun on their vacation as you are having on yours! See what our customers are saying.
