Welcome to Dogwood Daycare & Boarding

Since opening in July 2001, DOGWOOD is your dog’s Best Choice in Los Angeles for Cage-Free Daycare, Overnight Boarding, Grooming & Training. DOGWOOD has unique Outdoor & Indoor areas unlike any other LA kennel. DOGWOOD is also an extremely clean, quiet & safe place with 24-hour supervision & surveillance to keep your dog protected at all times.

To become a DOGWOOD Member, your dog should have certain things in place prior to his or her Interview Daycare Session. Interviews are scheduled By Appointment Monday thru Friday from 7:00 am to 10:00 am. Owners are here for a few minutes & their lucky dog then spends the day with us! A personal tour will be given to Owners that morning. We’ve remained consistently selective in the dogs we accept as Members & have wonderful, devoted customers who appreciate DOGWOOD for it’s awesome atmosphere & know first-hand it’s the Best Choice for their Dog!

Our 12,000 sq. ft. cage-free facility was designed to make your dog’s stay as enjoyable as being at home, but with a few more friends & lots more Outdoor & Indoor space. DOGWOOD prides itself with being amazingly quiet with several Outdoor Play Areas. We also offer relaxing Indoor Areas for your dog to snuggle-up in. Customers compare DOGWOOD to their favorite bed & breakfast vacation spot & have remarked that they only wish people could stay at DOGWOOD too!

DOGWOOD demonstrates its professionalism & appreciation to their customers by our commitment in recognizing that DOGWOOD Members are all individual dogs with various personalities & specific needs.
