An Important Message For Our Valued Clients

Because your dog’s health and well-being is our first priority at Passage East, we want to alert you to recent reporting of CANINE INFLUENZA (canine flu) in Fairfield County.

There have been NO cases of Canine Flu at Passage East.

We are on high alert for symptoms & exercising even more rigorous sterilization & sanitation protocols to ensure our facility remains a safe place for your furry family members. Additionally, as a precautionary measure, dogs displaying symptoms will be required to leave immediately.

We are NOT mandating that your dog receive the Canine Influenza vaccine, but do encourage you to consult with your vet to see if it’s something they would recommend.

Please be aware that puppies, older dogs, & dogs with existing health issues / compromised immune systems are the most at risk.

We ask our current clients to please be on the lookout for flu-like symptoms in your dogs, and to refrain from visiting other facilities, pet stores, & dog parks where the virus is more likely to spread. Thanks for helping us maintain a safe home away from home for your dogs!

Woof! Hi, there!

My dog Sadie just loves going to Passage East Kennels, which makes me so happy! The staff is great and they really pay attention to all the dogs. I don't feel guilty when I drop her off because I know she is going to have a fun filled day.

I have four dogs and each is very different with different needs. They did an excellent job. The dogs seemed happy, were greeting the handlers as old time buddies, and I love being able to see pictures of them while I am gone. Have already booked them for our next vacation.

I'm so glad we found Passage East. From daycare to grooming to boarding they are great. Now I don't worry when we travel. The staff really cares about the dogs. There is someone there 24 hours a day & a vet is practically next door. My dog loves Passage East!
