Instead of the typical cage-like kennels, that are small and dark, One of a Kind Canine’s boarding offers boarding suites that have a spacious outdoor run attached to their roomy indoor area. Due to our number of available runs, we recommend you make reservations as soon as possible as we tend to fill up quickly, especially during holidays and weekends.
Indoor Kennels have solid side walls to prevent nose-to-nose contact, fence fighting, and to reduce stress, climb prevention roller bars, and glass front doors that allow the dog to see out and are lower stress than typical cage-like wire doors. Upon drop-off, the dogs will enter the drop-off yard to sniff around and check the place out, while their owners will come into the open, inviting lobby to check in. There will be a contract for the owners to sign (one for each dog, and it's good for the life of the dog!) and all accessories, including food will be checked in, as well. The dogs will then be shown to their suites and their belongings will be placed in the appropriate locker. More than one dog will be allowed in a single suite, if the owner is sure that the dogs get along and eat together with no aggression. If dogs from different households would like to room together, both owners must agree and sign an additional contract.
All guests will be given a properly sized Nylabone and Kong to chew on during their stay. They will be provided with bowls for their food, and adequately sized water buckets. All food must be provided by their owners, as this will prevent upset stomachs from switching food and to help keep their stress level as low as possible. Owner-provided toys will not be allowed to prevent ingestion of chewed parts. We have a variety of beds that can be provided, along with a blanket, if requested.The guests will start their day at 8:00 am each morning with access to their outdoor run when the doors are unlocked and opened. They will be fed breakfast at this time and the suites will be cleaned while the guests enjoy their indoor/outdoor freedom. At 8:00 am on weekdays, when the facility opens, any dogs arriving for their stay will be shown to their suites and fed, if needed.
Dog daycare is now open!! Starting Wednesdays & Thursdays at approximately 8:30 am, the guests will join their corresponding Daycare groups (large dog, small dog, senior dog etc.). The guests will enjoy a busy morning of socializing and play in the play yard until 12:30 pm when they will return to their suites for nap time, as the facility is closed from 1-3pm for lunch. Any dogs going home that day will receive a bath during nap time. At 3:00 pm, when the facility opens after lunch, the guests will return to their daycare groups for more play and adventures until approximately 4:30 pm. At this time, guests will return to their indoor/outdoor suites and relax until dinner, or until they are picked up. Five o’clock is dinner time and the facility closes for the night. Any vacated suites will be thoroughly cleaned and prepped for the next guest. At 9:00 pm, I will return, let everyone out for one more potty break, and bring all guests inside for the night, and lock the outdoor run entrances.
Weekends will start the same way at 9:00 am, and the dogs will spend their time relaxing either inside, or outside their suites, whichever they choose and they will be checked on throughout the day. Dinner and lock-in will be at the same times as they are during the weekdays. Boarding pick-up and drop-off will only happen during business hours.
Females in heat will NOT be allowed to board. Please note this can be up to 4 weeks!
**WE USE VARIOUS DOG TREATS, PEANUT BUTTER, AND OTHER GOODIES TO STUFF THE KONGS. IF YOUR DOG HAS ANY FOOD SENSITIVITIES/ALLERGIES PLEASE LET US KNOW WHEN YOU DROP YOUR DOG(S) OFF**

Due to an increased number of last minute cancellations, holiday boarding reservations will be scheduled on a first come/pay, first serve basis. When making reservations for holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Spring Break etc), you will be placed on a list, once you pay for that spot, a kennel will be reserved for your pets. If your plans change and you need to cancel your reservation after you've paid, you will be refunded 75% of that cost until the first of the month for that reservation (eg December 1st for Christmas & New Years). After the 1st, you will be refunded 50%. Thank you for your understanding.
1 Dog - $20/night
2 Dogs (shared kennel) - $31/night
3 Dogs (shared kennel) - $42/night
1 Cat - $11.50/night
2 Cats (shared condo) - $18/night
Payment for your pet's stay is required at or before drop-off (please see below for Holiday Reservation Requirements)
Required vaccinations (we MUST have proof of the following from a licensed veterinarian before your pet can be dropped off!):
You are required to provide a copy of your pet's vaccination information (it can be faxed or emailed from your vet) as well as your pet's food for their stay. Please only bring enough food for the length of your pet's stay plus a little extra.Food must be in a resealable container (plastic bins or freezer bags). We will not accept store-bought bags as they take up a lot of space and will not protect your food against spillage or moisture.
Cats will stay in Kitty Condos located in the loft above the kennel room. This allows the cats to be far enough away from the dogs to keep stress low, but still be able to see everything that is going on. The Kitty Condos are bi-level, with private litter box and food areas. Bedding, dishes, litter box, litter, and toys will be provided. Kitties will need to bring their own food and any medications for their stay. Please put food in a resealable container. If your cat requires special litter, please bring that as well.
During their stay, cats will get one-on-one snuggle time as well as time on Me-aui Beach, an indoor exercise area designed with mental stimulation and play time in mind!
