What makes Dogwood Acres Pet Retreat different? Our Kent Island state-of-the-art facility is conveniently located right on the way to the beach at the first exit after the bay bridge on the Eastern Shore, in Stevensville just south of US-50E, on Route 8/Romancoke Rd in Matapeake Business Park.

We have acres of wooded grounds and a full complement of service options for all dogs and cats. Our commitment to superior pet care ensures a superior experience every time our canine and feline guests visit for dog daycare, dog boarding, cat boarding, dog training, or salon and spa services.

Dog Boarding

Unlike a traditional dog boarding kennel, our Kent Island facility is custom constructed with the comfort and happiness of you and your dog 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 dog with individualized care and attention and to provide the kinds of experiences your dog wants and needs.

Doggie Daycare

Before the fun starts, we perform a comprehensive behavioral assessment to ensure that your dog’s play style and sociability are compatible with the appropriate dog daycare playgroup. This way, every dog staying for dog daycare will feel confident and safe and most importantly have fun!
