Kennels are kept clean, and wellness observations are conducted daily.

What to Expect

Pet owners first book their appointment for dropoff, and bring proof of Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccination. We recommend you bring your pet’s favorite blanket which we can lay on the elevated bed, so they’re familiar with a comforting scent from home.  A few of your dog’s favorite toys and bones can also be brought from home to help them feel ease and keep them busy.  View our Services to learn more. 


Dog Boarding at Hammertown Kennels

You can feel at ease bringing your dog for his or her vacation at Hammertown Kennels.

We have a clean, safe, climate controlled facility with indoor kennels and heated floors. Your dog will have his or her own  space, elevated bed, and access to a view of the outdoors. 

We offer dog owners the ability to provide their own food during dog boarding, so your pet can eat what they’re used to eating. This prevents stomach and digestive upset that may sometimes accommodate changing brands. Since we don’t carry all brands on grounds, simply let us know if you’ll have any food requirements, should you have an emergency drop-off situation. We will be sure to get your dog the proper food, and adjust your bill accordingly.

If your pet needs special medications or care, please let us know. We monitor all dogs closely, and provide walks and playtime for Hammertown dog boarding Premium stays.

Hammertown kennel reviews


We are proud to have received stellar reviews from many of our loyal customers. The following is just an example of what others have said about Hammertown Kennels.


 “We have trusted John Boyles and Hammertown Kennels to board our dogs for the past 14 years. We have 2 German Short hair Pointers, one is 14 years old and the other is 2. They make sure our energetic 2 year old gets all the exercise she can stand and they give our old girl all the attention and care she needs and deserves. Our dogs are a part of our family and Hammertown Kennels treats them that way.  Our dogs come back to us happy, healthy and well cared for. Having John and his staff available gives us piece of mind when we travel. We highly recommend them.”

Dear John,

This email is to you and Mary. She and I had a lovely talk about the dogs, recommendations on grooming, feeding, and Spinner’s ear.

We thank you both for taking such good care of our little girls. They stormed the baby gate when they saw me, which of course was delightful, in my opinion. Mimi was hell-bent on getting out of there the minute she saw me, but sweet little Spinner (and yes, you understand the name) was just a bundle of love. They look great, well cared for, and smelling like little puppies. Your care for our girls is much appreciated.

Kind Regards,
