After a fun-filled day of play  your dog will relax and catch some zzz’s in one of our indoor cottages or cabins. We have sleeping quarters available in 5 different sizes to comfortably accommodate any pup, plus spacious indoor runs measuring 15' by 6' for the biggest dogs or multi-dog families. 

Managers Live Onsite

Many facilities promise 24/7 care, but do you know exactly who's taking those overnight shifts? Here, our senior management resides onsite - the people who know your dogs best and who your dogs know and trust - so you can be 100% confident of their safety at all times.

All Dogs Welcome

We believe that each and every dog deserves the same quality care, service, and love, and never discriminate against breeds. Our facility is designed and our expert staff is trained to provide superior care for all our furry guests, including those with special needs & conditions.

Our cozy cottage situated in the heart of beautiful Wilton 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.

Compassionate Care

for All Breeds

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.

Boarding at Passage East!

A Different Breed of Kennel

We're all dog parents here, so we get it - time apart from your pup is ruff. And if this is your first time going away, choosing the right pet care solution can be overwhelming. 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.

​We take the stress out of being apart by providing a safe, fun, & welcoming environment for your pup to call home and a passionate team of expert caregivers to treat them like family, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Check out our video to see why dogs everywhere are getting excited to stay at Passage East!

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. 


Fully secured with double fences, our 2 outdoor yards include playground equipment, raised beds, pools & tents for swimming & shade during warm weather, & 24/7 water access. Playgroups are held indoors in our newly remodeled rec area during poor weather. Both spaces are thoroughly disinfected daily to ensure the cleanest possible environment for your dog.

An additional fee of $10/night will be charged for unaltered dogs over 6 months old.

All prices subject to tax.

Make Yourself At Home!


When not in playgroup, your dog will spend the day enjoying tons of fresh air & space to stretch in one of our roomy, covered outdoor runs (weather permitting). 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.

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.,​

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.
