A Different Breed of Kennel

Ready for a vacation?

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.

Daytime

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!

​Bedtime

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.

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.

Passion & Experience

Our skilled team doesn't just adore dogs - we've worked with thousands over the years & dedicated our lives to learning what makes them tick. Most importantly, we get to know YOUR dog and the little details that make them unique so we can love & care for them like family.

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 included as part of your overnight rate.

Playtime

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.

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 the past 20 years has been to give dog lovers a reason to stop asking those questions - and their dogs a reason to love boarding.
