Free Play, Every Day

Fresh air & exercise aren't luxuries for dogs, but necessities. We offer all socialized pups 2 outdoor playgroups a day included as part of their overnight rate.


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.

Make Yourself at Home

 We're all dog pawrents here, so we get it -

time apart from your pup is ruff.

If you're anything like us, the first thing you think about when planning a vacation or work trip is: "Who's going to take care of my best friend? Who's going to give them pets & tell them they're a good dog? Are they going to be bored or lonely or sad while I'm gone?"

At Passage East, our mission for over 20 years has been to give dog lovers a reason to stop asking those questions - and their dogs a reason to love boarding.

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!

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 multiple sizes to comfortably accommodate any pup, plus spacious indoor runs measuring for the biggest guests. 

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.

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.

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.
