Mutt Hutt - Boarding with a Purpose

We want the Mutt Hutt to be your dog’s home away from home. We have a brand new state of the art facility to ensure your pet’s safety and comfort! 

We offer spacious 14 foot indoor/outdoor runs, comfortable kuranda beds, climate-controlled, and spotlessly clean suites accommodating all sizes of dogs. 

You can feel secure, knowing your pet is comfortable and secure in his/her own kennel. Outside potty breaks are provided every few hours. Morning and evening meals are served along with daily snacks.

Our staff is comprised of experienced dog-lovers who are passionate and provide a safe and comfortable experience for each guest. They are well trained in monitoring each guest’s health, keeping their living space clean and reassuring everything will be OK until picked up.
