Boarding Facility
in Sacramento

Our kennel building features five feet by twenty feet of indoor/outdoor kennels. Dogs are free to go in and out as they please. The kennel building is fully heated and air-conditioned. In addition, we also have indoor-only kennels for dogs who prefer to be inside.  We also have a large "Beach Play" area with a pool that's even heated for fun times in cold weather!  Elite Dogs is your dog's home away from home.

Dogs in our care are let out to exercise several times daily.  We request that our clients bring in their own food. Bring enough food for the dog's stay (better too much than too little). Some dog's appetites may increase due to the amount of physical activity they receive while in our care.  We ask that you please only bring your dogs food in a bag, we don't accept storage containers or scoops.  Food does not need to be pre-portioned.


Clients may bring treats such as pig ears, doggy biscuits or Knuckle Bones. We will not give Rawhide to the dogs in our care. Rawhide can be a dangerous treat if the dog is not under direct supervision. Clients may also bring one or two durable kennel toys such as a Plaque Attacker or Kong. Toys and treats can be purchased at Elite Dogs.


We will be glad to medicate your dog. Bring any medications your dog needs during their stays, such as Heartguard, Program, Advantage or any prescribed medications. We do ask that you leave the medication or vitamins in the original container, and please do not separate it into daily pill containers or transfer into plastic bags.


  • One dog - $45.00 per day
  • Two dogs (shared kennel) - $70.00 per day
  • Three dogs (shared kennel) - $90.00 per day

Only dogs that live together may board together.  We LOVE all dogs and we don't charge more for any dog, ever.  If your dog is aggressive towards people or other dogs, we have safe lodgings and well trained staff to work with them!  Rates are charged like a hotel: regardless of when you drop off, you'll be charged for the first day because your dog is with us overnight.  On day of pick up, if you pick up before 12:00 pm you will not be charged that final day.

Extra Services

All dogs get plenty of exercise, stimuli and attention with the basic boarding program. However, for dogs staying a while or just for the fun of it, we do offer additional activities such as:
  • Swimming, Fetch, Bubbles and Other Games
  • Daily Brushing (price can vary)
  • Training Sessions (for dogs who have already completed a training program or are enrolled)

Health Requirements

We require proof of current DHLPP (Distemper Combination), Bordetella (common name: "Kennel Cough") and Rabies vaccinations no less than three days prior to boarding.

Dogs that have been in any type of pound or rescue are not allowed on-site for at least twenty-one days after being home.

Bordetella, or “Kennel Cough,” is invisible and air born. “Kennel Cough” is a term used for many contagious upper respiratory viruses that have several different strands, and vaccines have not yet been created for every single one of these strands. Although it's common name is "kennel cough," this upper respiratory virus can be contracted in several different places, including:
  • Commonly Used Walking Paths
  • Or Even A Dog’s Own Back Yard.
  • Dog Parks
  • Kennels
Its incubation period is usually anywhere from two to fourteen days. Please, be aware, and never board your dog if you think your he/she might have been exposed.
Please be sure your dog is free of fleas and ticks prior to staying at our facility. If a dog is brought in with fleas or ticks, for his or her comfort and the comfort of the other dogs, we will bathe him or her. The fee for this service is $25 to $35 depending on the size and coat of the dog.
