Dog Boarding

Voted Best Dog Boarding!

Unlike a traditional dog boarding kennel, our state-of-the-art facilities were custom constructed with the comfort and happiness of you and your pet in mind. Our spacious accommodations allow your dog plenty of room to run and play instead of just sitting inside all day. Our focus is to provide each guest with individualized care and attention and to provide the kinds of experiences your dog wants and needs. With two locations in Davidsonville and Stevensville, MD we’re conveniently located to Annapolis, Kent Island, Easton, Baltimore and Washington, DC.

golden retriever testimonials

I spent weeks touring and researching various kennels within a 60-mile radius of my home. For years, I've heard such great things about Dogwood Acres. So this was my first choice. When we arrived they gave me a tour and the place was immaculate! Thank you Dogwood Acres for taking such care of Ginger!
