Strategic Paws Boarding
Stephens City, VA

Our boarding kennels are designed around the needs of your dog and to reduce the stress typically associated with boarding.  We provide roomy, clean, private kennels with and without outdoor runs.  

Dogs are exercised at regular intervals throughout the day in a beautiful, secure, two acre field.

The indoor environment is equally important.  Our buildings offer home-like interiors with television, music/audiobooks, and aromatherapy.

We accommodate all types of dogs.  All kennels are private with no direct view of other dogs in order to reduce stimulation for dog-reactive dogs.  We provide structured, supervised time for play and exercise and only socialize with your permission and with appropriately matched playmates. 

Owner/operators live on property and are always available to tend to the dog's needs, even when they need a little extra comfort in the night.
