Make Yourself At Home!

My dogs have stayed at Passage East twice for 10 days each time. We love looking for the Facebook posts and seeing what the dogs are up to. They really enjoy the extra one on one playtime each day. They come home so happy and healthy after their stay.

Our newly renovated facility is designed to meet the needs of each of our valued guests

State-of-the-art air purification & climate control systems, Nest® carbon monoxide/smoke detectors, & best of all, managers who live onsite ensure your dog's round-the-clock safety, while calming music, roomy accommodations, & regular dog & human interaction promote a positive, low-stress environment your best friend will love.

Free Play, Every Day

Our philosophy is that fresh air & exercise aren't luxuries for dogs, but necessities. So while some facilities charge pricey extra fees for a few minutes of playtime or a short walk, we offer all socialized pups 2 outdoor playgroups a day for a total of 4 hours of fun  - absolutely free.

Off hours pick-up & drop-off must be arranged with staff in advance. Additional fees may apply.

Passage East is the only place we trust with our English Mastiff, Meatball. Great outdoor time with lots of dog socialization. Super clean. Great staff that is so kind and caring. He has been going there since he was a tiny puppy. Can't say enough good things about Passage East! - Althea H.,​

An additional fee of $10/night will be charged for unaltered dogs over 8 months old.

All prices subject to tax.

I highly recommend Passage East. They have always been able to accommodate my needs when having to board my dog. He actually loves it there. The new play area that they have put in is very nice and there is a lot of room for the dogs to run and play.

Our runs measure 10'-20' long x 4'-6' wide and are equipped with raised Kuranda beds for lounging & ample fresh water at all times. Dog siblings are welcome to hang out together in a shared run.

There's a lot of options out there, and you want nothing short of the best in safety, comfort, and value for your best friend.

Passage East is here to make that decision easy.
