Your Dog’s Home Away from Home

At Cedar Creek Kennel, we specialize in the care of dogs, all ages and sizes are welcome. We provide a safe and comfortable environment so you come back to a happy, healthy dog. Located in a serene country setting, we treat each dog with individual care, as if they were our own. High fences ensure your dogs security. The owners live on-site, so enjoy complete peace of mind when you’re away if your dog becomes ill, or we experience serious weather.

Boarding & Facility

Set well back from Farmington road, this sprawling 16-acre property features a well-appointed kennel nestled in the forest, with two large real grass outdoor play-yards, and a private shaded trail through 10 acres of forest. Your dogs will have a minimum of 3 playtimes each day, where they have exclusive yard access (we don’t mix dogs at Cedar Creek Kennel) and one of the owners to play with. Our main kennel features indoor/outdoor spaces so your dogs can choose to be inside or out.

Do you have 3 or 4 dogs that need to stay together, or just 2 extra large dogs that need extra space? Our family lodge is the perfect space for your four legged family to stay together in comfort in large suites.

Do you have a nervous or elderly dog, or does your pup just appreciate tranquility? Our serenity room is the perfect fit for their needs. Naturally all spaces are heated and cooled for your dogs maximum comfort.

Hours of Operation
Dogs may be dropped off or picked up from 8:00 – 10:00 am or from 3:30 to 5:00 pm daily.

Weekday Day Care

We offer weekday daycare for dogs. When you know that extra hours at work are in your future, or that events in afternoon/evening mean that your furry family member (and their overfull bladder) will be alone for too long, consider daycare. We offer exercise, entertainment, and plenty of love during the day so you need not worry about your four legged family on top of your stressful day! Dogs in daycare enjoy an indoor/outdoor kennel space, at least two exclusive playtimes with the owner, and a walk in the woods. Finally, as the owner lives on site, we offer what most don’t, pick up as late as 8:30 pm.

Reminder: Vaccinations are Required

Vaccinations are required by the NC Department of Agriculture, who governs dog kennels. All boarders must have an up to date Rabies, Distemper and Bordetella vaccination. In most cases I will call your vet and obtain the paperwork for you! There are very rare instances in which there is a good medical reason that your dog may skip a vaccination. If this applies to your dog, then a brief but official letter from your vet provides the documentation to make it legal. It is not required, but highly recommended that dogs in NC have quality and year round flea and tick prevention. Our fax number is 336-344-9612 in case you wish to have your vet fax us updated copies as you leave their clinic.
