Caring for dogs

Bring your pet to the caring professionals at Poplar Forest Kennels for dog boarding in a clean, odor-free facility. Located in a beautiful wooded area, your dog will enjoy hours of watching wildlife, such as deer, rabbits, blue herons, and ducks.

For your dogs health and comfort we provide Kuranda™ beds

We will provide an adequate and proper diet in the amount you direct. We will seek veterinary assistance whenever appropriate, the choice of veterinarian to be explained during check-in.

Large Runs

Each dog has his or her own indoor/outdoor run. Made of commercial ceramic tile, the inside runs are easy to clean. The outside runs are separate and individual and feature kennel decks.

The facility is also equipped with two oversize runs, which we consider family condos. These large runs can accommodate several dogs from the same family. We maintain a sanitary environment for your pet. We maintain a sanitary environment by using pet-friendly cleaners, sanitizing prior and during your pets stay.

Walks & Playtime

At Poplar Forest Kennels, we strive to make your pet's stay stress free and enjoyable. That's why we offer one-on-one, 15-minute walks within the beautiful fenced-in area.

Pets can also work off their energy with one-on-one 15-minute play sessions in the fenced outdoor play area. Playtime is the perfect opportunity to give your beloved pet the additional care and exercise they need, and can include Frisbee, balls, or any toy of your dog's choosing. 


For your convenience, our staff is happy to administer medications as directed, should your pet require them during their stay. Be sure to inform us of any medication requirements or other special needs when you make your reservations or check in.
