Licensed and Insured Dog Daycare and Boarding Facilities Open Year-Round

About Us

River Run Kennels provides quality dog boarding and daycare in a lush 37 acre environment. Guests at our property enjoy all-inclusive leash-free play in a safe environment and nature walks through the woods.

Our custom-built dog kennel facility is clean, safe, and climate-controlled year-round. We offer your pet spacious indoor/outdoor suites, each with a raised bed and covered patio for private time when not socializing and exercising.

Owner - Eddy and his staff have years of experience in the care and ownership of dogs, but his dogs - Welly and Cadence are the true hosts of the facility and love to open their home to guests.

We are licensed, insured and members of the International Pet Boarding and Pet Services Association (IPBPSA). We are also Pet First Aid Certified and proud supporters of Big Sky Ranch Animal Sanctuary.

Boarding and Daycare

Dogs are social animals and we believe in providing opportunities for socialization and group play in a safe, rural setting. Guests enjoy all-inclusive dog boarding with leash-free play and nature walks. Read on to learn more about a typical day boarding with us. 

Satisfied Customers

“Our dog is a very sweet senior yellow Labrador Retriever. On short notice, River Run worked it out so she could spend five wonderful days with other dogs of like mind and temper. The facility is immaculate, well run and a splendid place for a doggie vacation. We will be returning again and again as the needs arise.”

Rev. Stephen Shay

"River Run Kennels is an excellent home away from home for our dog. It is clean, neat, and well organized. Each dog has their own area to themselves, both inside and out, plus lots of chances to socialize with other dogs on acres and acres of trails. It is both heated and air conditioned. Our dog had such a good time he was reluctant to come home. We will definitely have him stay at River Run Kennels again - probably not soon enough to suit him!"

Mike MacKenzie

“My dogs, Charlie and Jake love going to River Run Kennels! I love the fact they post pictures and I can see their happy faces playing with other dogs and being active. They are always excited to arrive and tired but happy on their return! Great caring people! Highly recommend!!"
